Hearts 3 has arrived ushering in the first of many highly anticipated games being released in 2019. Even though it’s titled 3, there have been a number of remixes that added to the lore of this amazing franchise. With such an immense story and long-running history getting into it and being lost may be a fear, but we can assure you that even if it’s your first time with the series or missed a few games in between you can jump into 3 and feel right at home. Each world puts Sora, Donald and Goofy into that particular movie series, even going as far as changing their skins and weapon palettes to fit each board.
While interacting with NPCs they will clue you into the situation and about the world, so don’t worry if you’re a bit rusty on your Little Mermaid or haven’t seen every single Aladdin movie.

This installment features a lot of locations from Pixar films so they were on board for character and level design. Imagine the immersion of actively being in Andy’s bedroom from Toy Story leading an army of toy soldiers. Speaking of an army, the cast list here is so massive it rivals the selection for Super Smash Bros Ultimate.
