Today Square Enix hosted a Kingdom Hearts III presentation at the Japanese D23 Expo in Tokyo, and we got a new trailer.

The video, that you can check out below, reveals a new world based on Monsters Inc. and reveals the return of Vanitas and Marluxia, who come back from previous iterations of the franchise. We even see new outfits for Mickey and Riku.

Unfortunately for those who expected a release date or a more precise window to be announced at the event, that did not happen. For the moment all we have is a generic “2018” in line with the earlier announcement made in July 2017.

We also get the reveal of the theme song by Hikaru Utada, titled “Oath.” Utada-san’s participation has been rumored, somewhat confirmed and then unconfirmed, but at long last we can hear it, and I’m sure I won’t be alone in thinking that it was really worth the wait.

You can enjoy the trailer below, alongside a second video featuring Utada-san’s new song. If you want to see more, you can also watch the previous trailer and a batch of screenshots featuring the Toy Story world.

You can also read our latest interview with Director Tetsuya Nomura himself, and check out the English version of the song.

Kingdom Hearts III is set to be released for PS4 and Xbox One.
