[UPDATED] New Subtitled Kingdom Hearts III Trailer

Runtime: 2:41    Author: Kingdom Hearts    Category: Trailers


Changed the video from the Japanese Square Enix Channel to that of the Official Kingdom Hearts YouTube page, as it contains subtitles. The description also reads:

In this action-packed trailer, Sora, Donald, and Goofy help Hercules battle various forms of Heartless on Mount Olympus through gorgeous visuals and gameplay.


What better way to end the first day of E3 (or at least the conferences) than with a brand new trailer for Kingdom Hearts III straight from the fine people at Square Enix Japan?!

Besides seeing some fresh HD gameplay, the trailer also informs us about the when we can expect to learn more about the game, saying:

Join us next month at D23 Expo 2017 as we proudly present a NEW WORLD and NEW TRAILER! July 15, 2017

As for the trailer itself, we can see that after a little text setting the mood, the trailer begins by showing Sora taking on a host of heartless in spectacular fashion, then teaming up with Goofy for a neat little combo trick. Then things get hairy, because as the this is a Japanese trailer with no subtitles, we weren't to sure what was going how, and you too may be asking yourself, "what're they saying?!" Well here is a quick translation we were able to find for you:

Pete: "Hey, now that ain't no way to say hello, especially to your old pallies"

Hades: "Funny, I don't remember you doing me any memorable favours. All right? Now toodle-oo. The exit's that way."

Maleficent: "We are not here to help you. All I need is a piece of information. Is there a distinctive black box in this world?"

Hades: "Black box?"

Then we are treated to a little more gameplay footage; Sora almost being hit by a boulder, followed by some more Sora v. heartless action, before we are greeted with a scene showing Sora, Goofy, and Donald Duck, talking to Xemnas, with who we believe is Ansem hanging out by the wall. Xemnas' dialogue goes something like this:

Xemnas: "How do you expect to bring Roxas back when he should never have existed in the first place? There is only one way to accomplish it. Sora, are you finally going to call upon the darkness?"

And that's the latest trailer. What did you think of it? and do you think we'll see it appear on anyone's stage now that we've been told when to expect the next world and trailer reveal? Let us know in the comments below.

Kingdom Hearts III still has no release date. For now, all we know for certain is that a new trailer and new world will be shown on July 16 (NZ time), at the D23 Expo 2017. Be sure to check back then.

What do you mean exactly? The original voice for Master Xehanort can't return due to Leonard Nimoy's passing ( <3 ), so that's off the list.

Frick me sideways right now. Now that was some 100% 100% hypu train sugoi sugoi sh*****t.
Wish I was at that concert reveal, would've welled up. Didn't help that all my Twitter insiders were imploding on us in real-time.
