How to Get the Ultima Weapon in 'Kingdom Hearts 3'

The best keyblade in the game isn't easy to unlock, but it's worth it.

Kingdom Hearts III just launched a few days ago, but if you’ve somehow already completed the 30-hour game you’re probably wondering what to do next. One of the most powerful keyblades in Kingdom Hearts III is the Ultima Weapon. So it’s the perfect challenge to tackle if you already beat everything else.

Here’s everything you need to know to get the Ultima Weapon in Kingdom Hearts III. Just be warned now, it won’t be easy.

Step 1: Collect the Materials

You can’t unlock the Ultima Weapon by beating some boss or completing a challenge in Kingdom Hearts III. Instead, you’ll have to collect the items needed to craft it yourself.

The first step is finding 58 Synthesize Materials scattered across the game. You’ll find them hidden in treasure chests across all the different Kingdom Hearts III worlds, while some will drop from enemies you defeat. You might even be able to buy a few from the shop to hit the 58 you need.

Step 2: More Materials

Oh, you thought you were done collecting junk in Kingdom Hearts III? Think again. You’ll also need the following items to craft the Ultima Weapon:

  • 7 Orichalcum+
  • 2 Wellspring Crystals
  • 2 Lucid Crystals
  • 2 Pulsing Crystals

The toughest item to find on that list is probably the Orichalcum+, but there are multiple ways to get it. You can earn some by finding Lucky Emblems. You can also collect them from chests, minigames, and other activities throughout Kingdom Hearts III.

Once you’ve collected everything you can craft the Ultima Weapon. Congrats, you did it!
