The newest trailer of Kingdom Hearts III explores the Kingdom of Corona from Disney animated movie Tangled from 2010.

Sora ended up on Corona with his friends only to come across Rapunzel, who just came out of the tower to see the outside world as Flynn Rider was climbing on it. The golden haired girl is then quickly confronted by plant-like creatures that Mother Gothel probably left behind to keep an eye on her.

Sweet talking thief Flynn points out that he can get her to the Kingdom but to him, Sora and his friends seem to be more accustomed for combat. So, they jump in to help and together they defeated all creatures. The trailer ends with Rapunzel saying "Best day ever!", just like she does at one point in the movie.

Another fun-filled Kingdom Hearts III trailer has just teased players with more exciting stories and it just keeps getting better each time. After crossing over with Big Hero 6, Frozen and Pirates of the Caribbean, bringing Tangled into the mix really set the bar on top.

The last mainline game from the series came out more than a decade ago and so many movies have come out in the mean time. Now that Disney has acquired Pixar, other popular franchise like Monsters, Inc and Toy Story came to play as well.

Kingdom Hearts: The Story So Far Announced for PS4

A collection of 9-game from the long-running Kingdom Hearts franchise is coming to PS4 later this month.

Upcoming crossover action role-playing game Kingdom Hearts III from developer/publisher Square Enix is set for a release window of January 2019, aiming for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. If you are new to the series, chances are that you have a lot to catch up as this is the twelfth installment of the series.

However, Square Enix has made it easy to help you get hold of the complex timeline by announcing a collection of games into one titled Kingdom Hearts: The Story So Far for PS4, coming on October 30, 2018.

Since the first game of the series was released in 2002, it has been difficult for fans to keep up with the story premise of Kingdom Hearts. The Story So Far collects every important piece together for the price of $39.99 and doesn't require anything else. Let's take a look at the games added to the compilation.

Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5+2.5 ReMIX

  • Kingdom Hearts Final Mix
  • Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories
  • Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days (HD Remastered cinematics)
  • Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix
  • Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep Final MIX

Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue

  • Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance HD
  • Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth by Sleep –A fragmentary passage–
  • Kingdom Hearts χ Back Cover (movie)

Although these are an assortment of old games you've played before, updates and minor changes are added along with HD graphics to deliver a refreshing experience to the fans. Even a feature-length film is also included in the package and it is available for pre-order now.

Unfortunately, they didn't announce an Xbox version of the collection and considering how the entire franchise has built up its legacy on PlayStation consoles throughout the years, players on Xbox are the ones who probably needed it the most to catch up with the adventures of Sora, Donald Duck and Goofy.

Until now, there hasn't been a single collection that offered every important part of the overall story and The Story So Far is the most complete bundle ever. Only problem it has is that the games are not listed in chronological order and there are no new content in it.

As you wait for Kingdom Hearts III to arrive and characters from Disney, Final Fantasy, Pixar and The World Ends with You to reunite on January 2019, you have two more months in between to get yourself introduced to the entire plot of the franchise and maybe try to figure out which comes after which.
