Just like its predecessor, this VR update is free and brings a number of experiences missing from the first VR sample, including Hercules’ Olympus Coliseum. It’s not clear what – nor how many – areas are included, but PlayStation says the latest instalment will enable you to “relive unforgettable moments” from the game (thanks, Engadget).
If you’ve yet to jump into Kingdom Hearts 3 yourself, Chris Schilling said in his Eurogamer review that Kingdom Hearts 3 offered “a lot”, with an estimated 238 cut-scenes for a game of around 30-40 hours.
“From the dazzling pyrotechnics that accompany many of its special moves to its extravagant, indulgent final act, restraint is not in its vocabulary,” Schilling said. “To a point, its aggressive investment in its story is understandable. After all, it has two mainline entries and roughly half a dozen spin-offs’ worth of narrative threads to pull together and tie up. But heavens, it shows. This is a game that should really have a spring in its step – this is Disney, for goodness’ sake – but it’s constantly burdened by its own knotty history.”
