Because of a fan mission made in Goals, Shrek is the latest character to (unofficially) be part of the Kingdom Hearts multiverse. Whereas the mission continues to be in its early levels, it’s thrilling to think about the place followers might take Sora and mates sooner or later.
The Kingdom Hearts collection tends to include pre-existing movies into its story in a modular approach, which is an effective match for fan tasks. Specifically, Sora and his allies battle their approach by retellings of every movie over the course of a few hours. Alongside the way in which, the social gathering usually positive aspects a visitor social gathering member from the movie, and when the day is saved, Sora flies off to a different world. Whereas this components has produced some unimaginable Kingdom Hearts ranges, they’ve all been drawn from Sq. Enix properties, Disney properties, or created particularly for Kingdom Hearts.
Reddit person lions_in_09 shared a Goals screenshot of Sora exploring a world based mostly on Duloc, the realm featured within the iconic 2001 movie Shrek. Excitingly, Shrek seems to function a celebration member, changing Donald. Sadly, lions_in_09 offers no indication of how Shrek fights, or how he would assist Sora. On condition that lots of the best-loved Kingdom Hearts character cameos are valued due to their contributions to fight, Shrek will hopefully have some attention-grabbing methods up his sleeve.
Nonetheless, it is arduous to think about how Shrek’s trademark crude humor and popular culture references might co-exist with Kingdom Hearts‘ tone. In pre-existing Disney worlds, the sport creators circumvent popular culture references even once they have been a significant a part of the corresponding movies. For instance, Aladdin’s Genie references different franchises and actors consistently within the movie, however does not achieve this in Kingdom Hearts. After all, setting their approaches to humor apart, Shrek and Kingdom Hearts are each offbeat and peculiar. Whereas Shrek won’t assault enemies with flatulence when aiding Sora, Duloc might nonetheless be a bizarre place full of satirical depictions of basic fairy story characters.
Whereas DreamWorks movies like Shrek are nonetheless off-limits for the Kingdom Hearts builders, Disney’s current acquisitions imply some iconic animated properties are honest recreation. This consists of Fox movies like Ice Age, Rio, and Robots, every of which might make for an attention-grabbing world for Sora to discover. As Disney+ expands its choices to incorporate Fox content material, it’s only applicable that Kingdom Hearts take into account doing in order effectively.
Whereas the fan-made Shrek state of affairs is not an official a part of the franchise, there are indicators that future Kingdom Hearts worlds may very well be very totally different than what got here earlier than. Specifically, Kingdom Hearts 4 will doubtless happen in Quadratum, a mysterious Tokyo-like realm that would mix parts from many well-known Sq. Enix titles. This implies that Kingdom Hearts Four will shift nearly fully away from Disney holdings to as a substitute consider Sq. Enix properties.
Goals is now accessible completely for the PlayStation 4.
