'Kingdom Hearts III' minigames riff on pre-smartphone mobile games

Share

Over the weekend, over a thousand Kingdom Hearts fans gathered in Los Angeles for the first Dandelion Meeting, an official community gathering for Kingdom Hearts Union x [Cross].

If you never got a chance to play those classic LCD platformers from the '80s, don't worry - because you can play them as a mini-game inside Kingdom Hearts 3.

These LCD games seem to be a call out to Nintendo's portable Game & Watch titles from the 1980s.

The new trailer for the most-awaited video game features the Classic Kingdom.

Some fans may be disappointed that this trailer only shows off these minigames, but we do get a fleeting glimpse at Twilight Town. You should temper your expectations going in, however, because this trailer doesn't show off much gameplay or give away any real plot details.

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. Despite this, there is still no exact date for its debut, but we know that it will arrive sometime this year.

Kingdom Hearts 3 is coming to PS4 and Xbox One in 2018.
