What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Kingdom Hearts 3 is the latest installment of the popular action role-playing game from Square Enix for the PS4 and Xbox One. Players will fight alongside classic Disney and Pixar characters like Mickey Mouse and Goofy as well as newer heroes like Wreck-It Ralph, Hercules, and Buzz Lightyear. Gameplay will take place across worlds from a large number of Disney and Pixar movies, such as San Fansokyo from Big Hero 6, the Kingdom of Corona from Tangled, and locales from Monsters Inc. Players will use keyblades – giant swordlike weapons in the shape of keys – to defeat shadowy creatures known as Heartless and Nobodies, who explode into orbs when defeated. While there isn’t any inappropriate content, the heightened focus on Disney film characters and movies can come across as an extended marketing pitch for these properties.
