An accidental tweet sent out late Thursday night just past midnight shows an excited John Vignocchi holding what appears to be an Organization XIII Mickey Mouse figure from Kingdom Hearts! The figure is the icing on the cake for the community who has long been asking for a Kingdom Hearts playset to be added to Disney Infinity’s roster.
UPDATE: The tweet looks like it’s already been taken down. Luckily we were able to save the photo.
It’s no surprise that Kingdom Hearts content is being added after the reveal of 3.0’s ultimate unlock, the Keyblade. Previous versions of Infinity heavily featured hidden Star Wars content which ultimate translated into multiple playsets and figures.
Infinity has been leaving a trail of bread crumbs for fans to follow, first with the King Mickey power disc that gives Mickey Mouse his iconic Kingdom Hearts costume. And the iconic weapon from Kingdom Hearts, the Keyblade, as the reward for collecting all the 3.0 figures.
Obviously there are very little details about what to expect with this playset but we can only hope that it brings with it a Goofy figure to round out the main three Disney Characters (we already have Donald & Mickey) in addition to a Sora character.
A majority of the old and new Disney properties featured in previous and future Kingdom Hearts franchises are already a part of Disney Infinity which makes the possibilities for what Kingdom Hearts might bring to the game pretty exciting. From Pirates of the Caribbean to Big Hero 6, Infinity’s roster is stocked with iconic Kingdom Heart cameos.
We can’t wait to see what fun and unique was Disney Infinity can capture the Kingdom Hearts story and gameplay style. Hopefully the new playset for 3.0 will be a nice hold over for fans eagerly awaiting Kingdom Hearts 3 which should be due out sometime next year.
