Are There Final Fantasy Characters in Kingdom Hearts 3?
Kingdom Hearts 3 has finally arrived after years, and years of fans patiently waiting for a proper numbered sequel to the popular long-running franchise. Occasionally, Final Fantasy characters appear and play a role in the events of the series, and many fans are wondering if there are Final Fantasy Characters in Kingdom Hearts 3. The answer is complicated.
So let’s start out by saying, technically yes, there are Final Fantasy characters in Kingdom Hearts 3, but not in the way that you might be imagining them if you’re searching for the answer to this question.
In the game, there are Moogles, and nods to minor characters such as Cactuars. There is also a Chcocobo that you can put on your Gummi Ship.
However, small references such as these is where the connections end for the most part. The game is very firmly planted in Disney franchises, and the series’ all lore, and is primarily concerned with wrapping the story up. Final Fantasy is on the back burner in this case.
Now, there’s certainly exists the possibility that there might be more references hidden that we haven’t discovered yet and that there could be new ones patched into the game via an update or future DLC. As of right now though, the FF characters don’t really appear to play a major part in the story of KH3.
If this is somewhat disappointing to you, we’re sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but at least you have your answer now.
