You explore the worlds, take on hack-and-slash combat, and progress a story. The novelty is, of course, the Disney characters, but also the games are known for engaging stories and light character development. They are a little like a lite version of the Final Fantasy games.
More than older role-play games, these are stories about friendship. Many characters need help along the way - and many boss battles feel almost insurmountable. With help from friends like Donald and Goofy, the player character Sora overcomes the darkness to save his friends and bring hope back to the world.

Rated for younger players in the US. Kingdom Hearts 3 is Rated ESRB EVERYONE 10+ for Alcohol Reference and Fantasy Violence. Players use key-shaped swords, whimsical magic attacks, and special powers/attack moves (e.g., blasts of water, cartoony blasters) to defeat enemies in frenetic combat. Some sequences allow players to pilot robots or small ships that shoot projectiles at enemies from a first-person perspective. A handful of cutscenes depict off-screen stabbings/impaling of protagonist characters.
