A second playable character in Kingdom Hearts III? Could it be a fresh face, or an old friend?
In the Kingdom Hearts universe, there are many memorable characters. From Sora, Riku, and Kairi, to Mickey, Donald and Goofy, Roxas, Xehanort, Ansem, there’s a lot to like. But when it comes to playable characters, a select handful have been given that honor. Especially in the main titles. But during the D23 event, director Tetsuya Nomura noted that there would be a second playable character in Kingdom Hearts III:
“So it would be tough to introduce many, multiple playable characters, but there is an intention of adding a playable character aside from Sora. Unfortunately, we’re not able to disclose who it is yet, but there will be [another playable character],” Nomura said.
In the past, King Mickey, Riku, Aqua, Roxas, and a few more were playable. So, could one of them return for certain sections of the game? Or will someone else get the spotlight? Guess we’ll find out when the game arrives in 2018.
