To celebrate these new takes on the classic weapon, we’ve highlighted KH3’s transformations in the gallery and article below, so read on to check all of them out.
And, be sure to check out almost every major Kingdom Hearts 3 Disney character, the Disney worlds of Kingdom Hearts 3, and, of course, our Kingdom Hearts 3 review.
The Monsters, Inc. Keyblade’s first transformation sees the mechanic keyblade transform into a set of claws, which Sora can use to lunge across battlefields to attack enemies.
Frozen’s Keyblade finally transforms into not just a pair of powerful ice lances for Sora, one on each hand, but also a set of ice skates to let him glide around any battlefield with ease, before calling in a giant ice chandelier and shattering it as a finisher.
Similar to the Monsters, Inc. Keyblade, Frozen’s Keyblade first transforms into a set of claws infused with ice, which let Sora swipe at enemies with giant ice claws.
Sora’s Hercules-based Keyblade transforms into a powerful, thunder-infused shield shape. While it obviously works for close-up combat, Sora can also throw the shield for ranged, mid-combo attacks.
The Shooting Star Keyblade transforms first into a set of pistols, which Sora can use as ranged weapons across a battlefield. Bullets naturally find their way to targets, while players can also lock into place and shoot rapid fire at foes.
Toy Story’s hammer becomes a powerful drilling mechanism, which can barrel into enemies, fish in and out of surfaces and cause some massive damage with a finisher that slams all around Sora.
Sora’s Pirates of the Caribbean Keyblade becomes a powerful lance, which not only gives Sora great range but also allows him to attack from above with a flurry of energy lances.
Similar to the Shooting Star Keyblade, the Winnie the Pooh Keyblade transforms into a set of pistols, which shoot out very dangerous blasts of honey.
And also like the Shooting Star, the Hunny Blasters become a single, more powerful rocket launcher-like weapon, which spews massive honey bombs at foes.
The Toy Story Keyblade first becomes a toy hammer, which is great for ground pounds and general area of effect attacks.
The Shooting Star’s pistols become one powerful rocket launcher weapon, which allows for a more concentrated burst of energy to be shot at foes.
Tangled’s Keyblade becomes a powerful, magical staff, which allows Sora to create copies of himself, which can all simultaneously attack a foe from all sides. And as a finisher, it transforms into a giant tower, atop which Sora and his copies rain beams of energy down on enemies.
Big Hero 6’s keyblade summons the nanobots of San Fransokyo and transforms the Keyblade into blocky versions of other Keyblade transformations, before unleashing a finisher that summons powerful strikes of nanobots at foes.
The High Wind becomes a more flag-like weapon, which, in addition to slicing and dicing foes with ease, unleashes a finisher that releases a kraken on enemies near to Sora’s location.
The Monsters, Inc. Keyblade transforms from claws into a dual set of Yo-yo’s, obviously allowing Sora plenty of ranged, AOE attacks, while also offering a finisher that can trap a foe and bash them around a battleground.
