Square Enix has released a new trailer for Kingdom Hearts 3, showing off plenty of footage from the Big Hero 6 world and characters that will be featured in it. The trailer was shown at the PlayStation Lineup Tour, a pre-Tokyo Game Show event. The Kingdom Hearts 3 trailer is in Japanese but you can use YouTube’s closed captions feature for English subtitles.
It opens with Sora, Donald, and Goofy in San Fransokyo battling Heartless on the Golden Gate Bridge. Baymax arrives and introduces himself, alongside Hiro, and the gang all team up to fight their enemies. There’s also short segments from the Monsters Inc. and Tangled worlds, as well as some story teases, with Xehanort appearing briefly too. Check out the trailer above to see all this, plus some pretty cool combat and Gummi Ship sequences.
Kingdom Hearts 3 is set to be the closing chapter in the saga, which has been told primarily through the numbered, core entry in the series. As with previous entries, players will be taken on a ride through some of the most beloved Disney worlds, including Toy Story, and Hercules, in addition to those mentioned above. Kingdom Hearts 3 is set to release on January 29, 2019 on Xbox One and PS4.
