New Kingdom Hearts 3 Trailer Highlights 8-bit Mini Games

Kingdom Hearts 3 Will Have Some Weird Old School Mini Games Shannon Grixti

While they may not have been there to celebrate the upcoming Kingdom Hearts III, Square Enix didn't disappoint, as Franchise Director Tetsuya Nomura was on hand at a panel and revealed some of the new mini-games that will be making their way to Kingdom Hearts III when it launches this year. Instead, this new trailer is nearly entirely centered around mini games you'll be able to play during your adventure.

These mini-games are inspired by 1980s LCD games and classic Disney cartoons. The games are titled as follows: The Barnyard Battle, The Karnival Kid, Giant Land, and Musical Farmer.

Convention season is right around the corner, so we can expect to see a lot more of Kingdom Hearts 3 at these events. For anyone born after Nintendo discontinued Game & Watch, this trailer might instead conjure up memories of lower-quality Tiger Electronics handhelds that seemed to be everywhere in the early-to-mid '90s. Not much else is revealed in regards to these mini-games but it looks as though it'll take many players on a trip down memory lane.

It has been a very long time since a numbered Kingdom Hearts game has released, with the last one being 2006's Kingdom Hearts 2.

Kingdom Hearts III, the first main entry in the series since 2006, is expected to arrive sometime later this year.

Assuming Square Enix is still on track to meet its 2018 release window, we'll probably get a release date at E3 in June. Which ones did you have?
