Kingdom Hearts Director Wants To Add Pixar

Buzz Lightyear as a Kingdom Hearts character? Could happen.

Longtime Kingdom Hearts veteran and co-director of the upcoming Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance Tai Yasue told me at E3 this week that he'd love to take Sora and Riku through the wonderful worlds of Pixar's films. As a collaborative project between Square Enix and Pixar parent company Disney, Kingdom Hearts could definitely find its way into a setting like Wall-E or Cars.


"Personally—and this isn't an announcement—I would really love to do a Pixar world," Yasue told me. "A lot of us do."

"Any particular favorite Pixar world?" I asked. His answer: Toy Story.

So maybe we'll get to see Sora and Riku fighting alongside Woody and Buzz in Kingdom Hearts III, whenever that comes out. If it ever comes out.

Among the most demanded worlds for these games Pixar definitely ranks up there high. I think if they were to finally use them , they should use at least two worlds. I'd go with the given "Toy Story" and "Monsters Inc" personally.

As for regular Disney worlds , they need to put "Robin Hood" in now. It's literally one of the most asked for worlds and it'd be absolutely bad ass. I'd love to see "The Rescuers" as I think it'd be very interesting to see.
