Big Hero 6 confirmed for Kingdom Hearts 3

When we were all graced with that beauty of a Kingdom Hearts 3 trailer at E3 this year, we were still left hungry for more. Square Enix assured us that we would see more of the title at D23, a convention dedicated to all things Disney. And as of the time of this writing, we just got some new info: specifically a brand new world based on Big Hero 6.

Released towards the end of last year, Big Hero 6 was based off of a Marvel comic book and saw a teen prodigy called Hiro Hamada team up with a lovable robot named Baymax to thwart the evil plans of a mysterious supervillain. The film proved to be immensely popular, nabbing itself an Oscar for Best Animated Feature.

While all we have to go on is a single piece of concept art, it’s a very snazzy piece of art (designed by series director Tetsuya Nomura) depicting Sora riding on top of Baymax as they battle an enemy, suggesting that Baymax will be a party member. We also received some story details regarding the world – rather than adapt the plot of the film, Sora will arrive after the events of the film when Hiro and his friends have already formed their superhero team.

It was revealed that (SPOILERS FOR THE FILM) the Baymax that was left in the other dimension will become corrupted by the Heartless. With an original plot like this, could this mean that the other worlds will receive similar treatment? It would certainly open up a lot of story potential.

In other news, the previously confirmed Tangled world was given an official name: Kingdom of Corona. Sadly, still no news on a release date. Fingers crossed for more news at the Tokyo Game Show.

Ten million people play The First Descendant in its first week

The free-to-play shooter The First Descendant has gotten a lot of attention in its first week. The game’s publisher, Nexon, says that 10 million people have already tried it out.

Insider Gaming pointed out that since there is no cost up front, it’s still too early to tell how many of those players will stick around, but it’s still a big number for a new IP. On Steam alone, it peaked at 264,860 concurrents right after launch and has still managed to break 200,000 in the last 24 hours, so it looks like a lot of people are still really into the game.

It was a “mindless and repetitive grind,” and we gave The First Descendant a 3/10 in our review. Of course, that’s just one opinion; other experts have had different ones. Most people, though, say that the game’s annoying free-to-play model is the worst thing about it.

Are you one of the millions of people who played The First Descendant last week? Are you going to come back for more? Leave a comment below and let us know.

Raiden has a long and interesting history as a vertical shooter in arcades. However, the series is going to get a Super Stardust HD makeover, which means it will switch to a twin-stick format. It comes out in Japan on October 31. There’s no word yet on when it will come out in the West, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it did.

A Gematsu translation of the game’s website says that the full version will have an arcade mode with up to six stages. There will also be an “Unlimited” option for people who want to be at the top of the rankings. It sounds like a pretty straightforward package in terms of what’s inside, but we think the action will be what makes it worth it.

There’s a trailer up top that should help you figure out what to expect. There are, however, different versions of Raiden 3, Raiden 4, and Raiden 5 that you can play right now on the PS5 and PS4, if you can’t wait for this game to come out in the West.
