Kingdom Hearts III Trailer Summary from D23 Expo

Kingdom Hearts III

As you probably all heard by now that during Japan’s first ever D23 Expo, during the Kingdom Hearts panel, series director Tetsuya Nomura showed a new trailer to all the lucky chosen participants!

Unfortunately there were no photography or recordings during the event itself and while it’s currently unknown if and when Square Enix and/or Disney will upload this video but for now we do have a full trailer summary thanks to aibo_ac7 who attended the event, also big thanks to the lovely and wonderful SQEXGAL for taking the time to translate her summary as well as tweets from other participants as well!

The list was compiled thanks to

– The new KH3 trailer shows something like attractions, a train summon like the electrical parade? Also fighting the Rock titan.

– Movements on screen are really dynamic. Just as beautiful as expected for the PS4.

– I also noticed a scene where it looked like a Keyblade variation where Sora dual shooting 2 guns.

– Sora’s new attack! Disney attractions! In the new trailer, you see the pirate ship from Peter Pan, but it’s lit up like in the Electrical Parade!

– Fighting Heartless and the Rock Titan in Traverse Town. Sora is in front of the electrical parade attraction like boat, attacking. The Rock Titan line gradually appears in front of the electric parade coaster. It seems to attack by spinning around the Titan.

– They already said that KH3 uses an exclusive tool called Kingdom Shader, but seeing it, it’s really amazing! Sora’s hair sways naturally, his expression is soft and realistic, his caricature is portrayed beautifully. I want this trailer to be released immediately!

– On the scene where Sora wields 2 guns, it seems that the guns are related to an attraction with the little green men. リトルグリーンメン is what the little green men in Toy Story are called officially in Japanese, so maybe we have Toy Story confirmed. Maybe.

– It goes without saying that the action is great, but even flames appear really realistic! I can’t wait to see what the magic will look like from here on out!

– The special attraction attack used against Rock Titan is the Electric Parade like roller coaster you can ride! It looks a lot like the Big Thunder Mountain attraction from Disneyland. Donald and Goofy are secured by the safety bar, lol.

– Also, there was a scene where the Keyblade transformed into 2 guns.

– The KH3 trailer we’ve been waiting for centered on a battle scene with Sora Donald and Goofy in Traverse Town. It looked like Sora was using Aqua’s Magic Wish command style. Lastly, the Keyblade separated and was held in both hands, shooting balls of light.

– Then the scene changes and we see Sora operating a boat like in an amusement park. Probably Peter Pan. It looks like the night version of the float that Peter Pan rides in the Disneyland Jubilation parade.

– The next scene looks like Big Thunder Mountain from Disneyland. You attack while riding on top of a shining coaster as the tracks surround Rock Titan, sending him spinning. Finally, Sora and co get off the coaster as it crashes into the Titan.

– This trailer seems to show practical in game footage judging by the movement conditions. The motif this time was the attractions of Disney. The latest KH3 trailer was only battle scenes that confirm the appearance of Sora and Riku. Look forward to Roxas, Ven, and the rest from here on out.

– The compilation trailer shows memorable scenes. Lastly the line “To you, wherever you are in this world”, followed by Keyblade/key confetti.

– The compilation trailer included flashback scenes of hugs, handshakes, arm grabs, Keyblade succession, head pats, etc. Very heartwarming. Xion, Namine, and Vanitas also appeared.

Here is the translation of aibo_ac7’s/FF-Reunion trailer report:

“The KH3 trailer was composed of battle scenes. The first scene is Traverse Town fighting Heartless, where Sora jumps up and unleashes a homing fire attack?! The Keyblade changes into something that shoots a repeated fire barrage! Next the lighted boat attraction (Peter Pan’s boat) is shown swaying back and forth, Sora Goofy and Donald are in the front of the boat. (Donald is strapped in by the safety bar). They attack the enemy while they sway in the boat. In the Rock Titan battle, the Big Thunder Mountain type attraction proceeds forward, the coaster tracks gradually appearing. It seems to attack as it surrounds the Rock Titan. (According to other reports, the Big Thunder Mountain skill logo was shown with a gauge.) According to Nomura, what’s shown in the trailer is already the kind of play that’s possible. “
