Kingdom Hearts 3 gets a Thomas the Tank Engine mod, of course

Thomas the Tank Engine must have a mighty long CV these days. From being Monster Hunter's newest Elder Dragon to transforming into a giant train snake (opens in new tab), plonking old Tommy into videogames is just a rite of passage at this point. With Kingdom Hearts 3 mods starting to trickle in over the last week, it's only natural that the train has now ventured into the Disney/Final Fantasy mashup.

Modder calebsmores has replaced the tram that circles around Twilight Town with a slightly terrifying rendition of the Tank Engine—his glowing eyes have stared straight into my soul, letting me know he's most definitely flattened a Disney princess or two in his lifetime. It's just a model and texture replacement, so don't expect the theme tune or any ear-splitting whistles.

The Kingdom Hearts 3 mods have been relatively tame so far as people find their feet with the game, so this Thomas mod feels like its official initiation into the PC gaming club. You can grab the mod over on Nexus (opens in new tab), which just needs extracting into the game's paks folder.

A fresh writer in the industry, Mollie has been taken under PC Gamer's RGB-laden wing, making sure she doesn't get up to too much mischief on the site. She's not quite sure what a Command & Conquer is, but she can rattle on for hours about all the obscure rhythm games and strange MMOs from the 2000s. She's been cooking up all manner of news, previews and features while she's been here, but especially enjoys when she gets to write about Final Fantasy, Persona, The Sims, and whatever other game she's currently hopelessly fixated on. There's a good chance she's boring another PC Gamer writer about her latest obsession as we speak.
