When the next Kingdom Hearts game was announced in 2013, fan discussion immediately turned to an important topic: which worlds will the next installment include? Kingdom Hearts III is finally arriving sometime in 2018, and we know it will feature worlds inspired by Tangled, Big Hero 6, Toy Story, and Monsters, Inc among others. But what if Sora, Donald, and Goofy could travel to other video games or franchises? Picture a mash-up heaven where you could drop them into a variety of locales.
Via Polygon, DeviantArt user Vitor-Aizen has imagined the unstoppable trio in other settings, and now I want a Kingdom Hearts alternate universe where they fight Heartless in every game ever. Like, for example, Journey:
Or what if they popped into a more realistic setting, like the one in Resident Evil 4.
That reminds me a little of Port Royal, the Pirates of the Caribbean world in Kingdom Hearts II.
Sora and his team are right at home in more cartoony stories, too--like Despicable Me.
Vitor makes the images using 3D models and maps, free 2D renders, and Photoshop. Hop over to his DeviantArt gallery to see dozens of Kingdom Hearts mash-ups with everything from The Simpsons to My Neighbor Totoro. Related: I would melt/freak out if Kingdom Hearts had a Studio Ghibli world.
