One of the things that really separates Kingdom Hearts from other video games is the voice cast. Granted, many video games from many different publishers have great voice acting. It’s almost a requirement for certain kinds of video games. But when it comes to Kingdom Hearts, they take it to the next level, because they actually bring in the voices of the Disney and Final Fantasy characters that they’re using. Granted, not everyone is available, but they hit more than they don’t, and Kingdom Hearts III continues to prove that.
The game is going to be kicking off 2019 in style, and in honor of the 4th anniversary of Big Hero 6 (who will be in the game via a new world), Disney revealed how much of the original cast would be joining the game. This will include Ryan Potter as Hiro Yamada; Scott Adsit as Baymax; Genisis Rodriguez as Honey Lemon; and Jamie Chung as Go Go Tomago.
Furthermore, to fill in some of the roles, they’ve brought in legendary voice actor Khary Payton from the Big Hero 6 TV series to play Wasabi.
For those who don’t remember, Big Hero 6 was actually a Disney movie based off of an obscure Marvel comic. One about a different take on Earth in a place called San Fransokyo.There, technology was way more advanced, and a kid named Hiro would find himself trying to avenge the death of his brother, and by using his protector Bayamax along with his friends, they would become heroes.
Having them in Kingdom Hearts III is a bit of a no-brainer. They perfectly fit the mold of a Kingdom Hearts world. And with the upgraded graphics and the ability to tell bigger and better stories, you can bet that it’s going to be a fun world to play on.
The game releases on January 29th.
