Kingdom Hearts III Players Can Catch Up With These Official “Memory” Videos (VIDEO)
A threequel at one time fans thought would never see the light of day, Kingdom Hearts III has finally been released worldwide. Continuing the world-hopping adventures of Sora, Donald, and Goofy, the Keyblade-wielding fight against the series’ growingly-dark antagonists is now ready to reach its epic conclusion. However, those who haven’t played through previous Kingdom Hearts titles (or maybe neglected to do so for a while) may be in serious need of a refresher.
Luckily, developer Square Enix is now offering just that in the form of the “Memory Archives” video series, giving fans easy means to navigate the franchise’s famously convoluted lore. Via the game’s official YouTube page, the events leading up to Kingdom Hearts III are given some very welcome context, introducing various characters, enemies, and laying out important story beats to better prepare gamers of the newly-released adventure. You can check out the full 5-part video series in the playlist below.
While Kingdom Hearts III fans have quite a journey ahead of them, the game has introduced plenty of extras to enjoy as well. The latest update has added an all-new epilogue, a nifty photo mode is offering ample selfie opportunities, and there’s a fittingly-themed Xbox One controller (or special PS4 Pro for Sony fans) that just recently became available. Kingdom Hearts III is out now for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
