Kingdom Hearts is a spiderweb of plotlines that only the most hardened of fans can keep up with. The casual fan may not realize that Ventus and Roxas are two different characters, or that Kingdom Hearts 3D is in fact not Kingdom Hearts III. Thankfully, Square Enix realizes that some may need some help connecting the dots, and have released a trailer to do just that.
‘Introducing the Magic’ looks into Kingdom Hearts’ past in order for fans to better understand the future of the franchise. Square Enix explains the main point of the story, and how Kingdom Hearts, Kingdom Hearts Re: Chain of Memories, and Kingdom Hearts: 358/2 Days connect together to form the first half of the Kingdom Hearts storyline. They then give a sneak peek at Kingdom Hearts II, Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep, and Kingdom Hearts Re: Coded and offer up clues to how those games will connect together. All three games will be part of Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 Remix, which launches December 2 exclusively on PS3.
With both Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix and Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 Remix released to the public, hopefully everyone will be prepared for Kingdom Hearts III.
