Kingdom Hearts fans won’t have to wait much longer to learn exactly what happened to Sora following the events of Kingdom Hearts 3. Thanks to a new trailer dropped during the latest PlayStation State of Play stream, we now know Kingdom Hearts 3: Re:Mind arrives on PlayStation 4 on January 23, 2020. Xbox One users will have to wait until until February to get their hands on the DLC.
Re:Mind follows Sora’s search for Kairi, which brings him to the Keyblade Graveyard. Re:Mind will see the return of Final Fantasy characters such as Leon, Aerith, and Yuffie, who will help Riku, Aqua, and the rest of the gang in their pursuit of Sora.
The trailer ties back to Kingdom Hearts 3’s secret epilogue at the end, as the mysterious Yozora walks towards Sora just before the game’s title appears on screen.
Here’s the official description of the DLC: “Re:Mind – the other tale that unfolded during the climax of Kingdom Hearts 3. Determined to rescue Kairi, Sora travels to the Keyblade Graveyard a short time before the final battle was to take place. Lacking a corporeal form, he traces the hearts of the seven guardians of light. Through experiencing their personal battles firsthand, Sora is about to discover truths that he has never before imagined.”
Kingdom Hearts 3 released this past January to critical acclaim. The game earned a great 8/10 in our Kingdom Hearts 3 review, with GameSpot’s Tamoor Hussain praising the exciting combat and wonderful Disney worlds and characters. Unsurprisingly, Kingdom Hearts 3’s story created more questions than answers. The overarching tale of Keyblade Wars and the collision of worlds and various timelines was every bit as confusing as you’d expect with a Kingdom Hearts game.
Re:Mind has a chance to fill in the holes and provide a satisfying conclusion to the saga. That said, it probably won’t be simple and clean (sorry). Now that we know when Re:Mind releases, let’s take a look at the two editions that will be up for pre-order shortly.
