Kingdom Hearts III Opening Cinematic Released, Contains Dubstep

Just when everyone thought the days of dubstep in video game trailers were over, here it is again in the opening cinematic to a Disney/JRPG crossover of all things. Yep, as we reported back in September, staple opening movie J-Pop star Utada Hikaru has teamed up with none other than Skrillex for Kingdom Hearts III’s intro stinger and, well, I kinda dig it!

The song is called Face My Fears and around a minute and a half of it can be heard in the cinematic, which Square Enix have so kindly pushed out to the public a little under two months from release. The trailer also features just the right amount of flashy imagery, angst-y teenagers and wig character reveals to make it a classic Kingdom Hearts opener.

Check the cinematic out below:

Kieron started gaming on the SEGA Master System, with Sonic the Hedgehog, Alex Kidd and Wonder Boy. The 20-odd years of his life since have not seen his love for platformers falter even slightly. A separate love affair, this time with JRPGs, developed soon after being introduced to Final Fantasy VIII (ie, the best in the series). Further romantic subplots soon blossomed with quirky Japanese games, the occasional flashy AAA action adventure, and an unhealthy number of indie gems. To say that Kieron lies at the center of a tangled, labyrinthine web of sexy video game love would be an understatement.
