During Microsoft’s E3 Showcase, Kingdom Hearts III confirmed that Disney’s “Frozen” would be the latest new world to be added to the adventure!

Sora, Donald, and Goofy find themselves in the icy realm of Arendelle, where the Heartless have continued their invasion. We see Sora using Blizzard Blades, a brand-new Keyblade form, to freeze his enemies and ice-skate. Additionally, Goofy’s shield finds a new use in escaping the Heartless during downhill Goofy Curling.

The heroes team up with the heroes from “Frozen” — Elsa, Olaf, Anna, Kristoff, and Sven — but there are some more familiar faces of friends and foes, as well. Simba from “The Lion King” appears as a Link character using the KingsFlare, a devastatingly powerful fire elemental attack. And Organization XIII members make their mysterious return to complicate Sora’s journey.

The trailer also showed the first look at Kingdom Hearts III’s Gummi Ships, which Sora, Donald, and Goofy use to travel between worlds. In addition to more clips on the already revealed “Hercules,” “Toy Story,” and “Monsters, Inc.” worlds, we also got to see a more in-depth look at how “Tangled” is shaping up.
