New Kingdom Hearts Info
New information on Square's "Disney RPG" Kingdom Hearts was revealed in the recent issue of JUMP magazine. Even more Final Fantasy characters were confirmed to appear in Square's collaboration with Disney. Apart from the already confirmed appearances of Tidus, Wakka, Selphie, Cid and Moogle, Yuffie from Final Fantasy VII and Squall from Final Fantasy VIII will appear in Kingdom Hearts. It could well be that even more Final Fantasy characters will follow suit.
Furthermore, two new worlds themed after Disney's Alice in Wonderland and Hercules were confirmed to be included in the game.
Your opponents in Kingdom Hearts' battles are not necessarily always the Heartless, but you might also face theme-oriented foes, like the Trump soldiers of Alice in Wonderland.
Last but not least, traveling will not be done in a Final Fantasy-style airship, but rather in the Gummy Ship.
Kingdom Hearts is currently on track for a spring 2002 release in Japan, followed by a Fall 2002 release on this side of the Pacific.
