Square Enix just hosted a Kingdom Hearts Union χ[Cross] fan meetup in Anaheim, California, and during the event, they broadcasted a brand new Kingdom Hearts III trailer.

The trailer themed after the “Classic Kingdom” features a batch of electronic minigames that will be included in an old-school LCD-type portable machine that Sora will be able to use in-game. It will grant the player access to a batch of minigames inspired by classic Disney cartoons and 1980’s LCD games.

We see The Barnyard Battle, The Karnival Kid, Giantland, and Musical Farmer. The one thing that the trailer doesn’t show, of course, is a release date, so we’ll have to wait longer for that.

If you want to see more, you can check out the previous Japanese trailer and the reveal of the new song by Hikaru Utada “Oath,” or the English version and song “Don’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. The game can be pre-ordered on Amazon.
