Following the reveal at D23 Expo in Japan on Saturday, Square Enix revealed a large batch of images of Kingdom Hearts III.

The images include some lovely high-resolution character artwork showing the characters of the newly-revealed world inspired by Pixar’s Monsters, Inc, and Sora, Donald and Goofy as they will appear there.

We also get a better look at Riku’s and King Mickey’s new outfits. The screenshots showcase Sora’s new keyblade attacks that actually cause his body’s color to change as they are executed.

Different cooperative attacks are showcased, including Sulley and Mike and Toy Story‘s characters. The “Link” feature allows more characters from other worlds like Ariel to help Sora as well. Rapunzel from Tangled will fight using her beautiful hair, and we see the return of  Vanitas and Marluxia. Since the past encounter with Marluxia has been forgotten, Sora does not remember him.

If you want to see more, you can check out the Japanese trailer and the reveal of the new song by Hikaru Utada “Oath,” or the English version and songDon’t Think Twice.” You can also read some additional information, and enjoy our semi-recent interview with Game Director Tetsuya Nomura himself, talking about Development, Keyblade Mechanics and Much More.

Kingdom Hearts III will release for PS4 and Xbox One in 2018.
