Kingdom Hearts 2 has already introduced two playable characters, the protagonists Sora and his Nobody Roxas. More Keyblade users will also be featured in the much-awaited Kingdom Hearts 3.

It was also reported that there might be a possible delay for the development of the game and having to work with Disney is thought to be the reason. Nomura wanted to apply the 2D artwork style of Disney in the next installment of the Kingdom Hearts series and the “Kingdom Shader” - an application of 2D animation on 3D video game graphics - was first revealed at an E3 trailer.

Kingdom Hearts 3 Latest Updates: A Revival Of A Canned TV Show; A Jungle Book World For KH3?

Kingdom Hearts fans now have two possible things to watch out for: a revival of a canned Kingdom Hearts TV show and a Jungle Book world for Kingdom Hearts 3.

Rumors have been emerging about the much-awaited 3rd installment in the Kingdom Hearts franchise - the Kingdom Hearts 3. The possible delay in the Kingdom Hearts release date due to several factors including the creation of new worlds; the conflicts between the game developers and Disney; reviving of a canned Kingdom Hearts TV show and a Jungle Book world for KH3.

 

Parent Herald wrote about the likelihood of a Kingdom Hearts TV show with an added Disney world in it. Filmmaker Kevin Munroe has disclosed with KH Insider some images of the screenplay he made in 2004 for the canned Kingdom Hearts TV show which apparently focuses on The Jungle Book world titled “Man’s Red Fire.” The script obviously shows that it is an adaptation of the Square Enix famous video game.
