While we can’t say when we’ll see KH4 next, there are some promising options in the coming months between first party showcases, Summer Games Fest, and D23. But let’s take a break from speculating the when and talk more about the what.

When we see KH4 again, what do you hope or expect to see in the re-reveal?

Personally, I hope the re-reveal stays focused on Quadratum. I’d prefer not to see any Disney worlds or returning original KH characters like Riku and Kairi just yet. I’d like it to expand on the original trailer’s concept of Sora being alone in this strange new world, but this time show us more of the city and the new characters he’ll be interacting with. I’m also hoping there’s a noticeable upgrade in the visual quality to show us the impact switching to Unreal Engine 5 made.

I’d also like to see actual gameplay of Sora exploring the city, fighting some enemies, and maybe show some of the side activities for Quadratum. I think we should get the finalized UI and our first look at the Scrap/Build mechanics. I’m also looking forward to the finalized version of Sora’s new outfit considering Nomura mentioned there would still be some adjustments last time.

Maybe it ends with the scene of Sora running into Xehanort in Miyashita Park. Or it will have a tag like last time that shows Donald and Goofy working with Hades to get to Quadratum or make contact with Sora.

Finally, I’m hoping for a set release window. If they can’t set a release window, I’d honestly rather they wait to show it. I’m hoping it won’t be more than a year out when they show it again.

Barely any story, only a little dialogue, and a lot of fighting/gameplay mechanics. There's a new logo font-- so show me why this isn't just another KH game. Any scenes in the trailer should just be stuff from the first two hours or Disney fluff. No Riku, no Kairi, no Xigbar... leave us in total suspense on the lore stuff and put the mechanics on the forefront. Starve the hardcore story loving fans until the game is out, they'll buy it anyway. Pitch the game instead to people who want to play a super badass current gen action game with good graphics and combat. Put KH on the map by any means necessary, get outsiders interested, stop making trailers that only exist to entertain customers you already have

Hopes: The scene of Hades attacking D&G continue, this time revealing Kairi coming to their rescue at the last possible second, blocking Hades' fireball & illuminating the cavern with her light power, giving the viewers a clear look at her new design, including a new, less flowery keyblade. This is followed by a few seconds of a Hades bossfight as Kairi 7 more clips of K+DG travelling to a new Disney world, confirming they're the main party for the game's Disney worlds while Sora's gameplay is exclusively Quadranum (which is much bigger than any other world in the game & takes up like half of the game's play time anyway).

Expectations: Hades kills D&G, which for reasons that'll never be fully explained in the final game transports them to Quadranum, where we get the same ol' same old SDG party yet again. Kairi gets somehow even less screentime in KH4 than in KH3.

Feel free to prove me wrong, Nomura.

I’d expect them to show us more of Quadratum and maybe the first Disney world.

I've talked about things in the other thread but I'll add to it I guess

We could see Donald & Goofy's forms in Quadratum. I wonder if they'll look like Disney World mascots, look like a realistic Duck & Dog, look like Magia and Aegis, maybe they'll be Robots

If KH4 goes the Meta route I could see them looking like Disney World Mascots or futuristic robots

Quadratum seems to have these robot mechs, with futuristic tech like that we could see Donald & Goofy look like animatronics that would be at a theme park

I think Donald & Goofy looking like a real Duck and Dog would be funny

All Quadratum did with Sora was make him look more like an FF character

D&G in Quad will prolly have more realistic textures and that's it

As for my hopes? Missing Link coming out already so we can probably have a KH4 re-reveal.

Story wise, I'd honestly like to see just a little more of what the Guardians of Light are up to in regards to helping to bring Sora back/Riku beginning his search, and then Sora encountering either Luxord, Young Xehanort or Yozora.

I just hope we do get a re-reveal this year. I believe we will. It's just a matter of when.
I also still believe a 2025 release is still on the table, but I wouldn't mind 2026 if the game releases in January like KH III did.

It made him look somewhat more live action-ish. Like if he were played by a physical japanese actor in live action this is basically what he'd look like.

Maybe more of Sora exploring Quadratum and interacting with the locals. It would be funny if the guy who took a pick of the Darkside came up to Sora and asked about his superpowers. Also, if Donald and Goofy are to be his companions again I suspect they will be seen in the city as well with new duds(I can dream can't I?)

As for Disney content, I'd be satisfied if the trailer ended with Sora in rebel gear teaming up with Luke against a tide of Heartless

I'm the minority of people who don't want Star Wars or Marvel, so I'll be happy to see less popular animated movie worlds like Treasure Planet and Atlantis, with some more modern films like Moana and Encanto. And then, of course, some shonen anime bullshit with cryptic phrases flashing in and out.

That's my ideal trailer.

I think they’ll just look like they did in the Caribbean, but with modern outfits. Remember that world was the testing ground for what they are doing with KH4’s graphics.

I also agree with Launchpad that it needs to be marketed effectively as a fresh start with the beginning of this new saga. Don’t weigh it down with updates on the other GoL, scenes of people standing around explaining new lore, etc. We’ll be fine waiting for the full game or later trailers for that stuff. Maybe have some vague lines of narration, brief looks at characters new to fans and newcomers alike, etc. But give it the same air of mystery KH1 had.

I don't think Donald and Goofy or Riku will find Sora until the tail of KH4. The central theme of this game is that he is lost, and it seems a mainly solo adventure is in order for growth and whatnot.

With that being said, I'd want the re-reveal trailer to focus on Quadratum like others have mentioned. City exploration, combat mechanics, world building shots showing off UE5 graphics, skateboard riding and other recreational activities, outfit customization and of course, the music. Things that might interest random players looking for something new to jump into.

If Donald & Goofy aren't our party members for the majority of KH4, I wonder who would be our replacements.

I'd assume we'd get two Disney characters to accompany us or it could be Magis and Aegis - they're pretty much Yozora's Donald & Goofy.

Nomura going outside the box for character's would be cool. Who would have good chemistry with Sora?

From Disney I'd pick: Oswald The Lucky Rabbit and one of KH3's summons (Simba, Stitch or Ralph)

From Pixar I'd pick: Merida (from Brave) and Wall-E, I feel like that would be an interesting group of characters.

From Marvel I'd pick: Spiderman (KH original version) and Rocket Raccoon (KH original version)

From Final Fantasy I'd pick: Vivi and Tidus

I tried picking characters with varying personalities

I hope we find out who Sora's companions will be in the next trailer if it's Donald & Goofy or new characters.

I'm hoping for Donald & Goofy with a new getup finally

It could just be Sora solo or some combination of Yozora/Riku/Strelitzia.

Gameplay wise, I’m kind of hoping for a twist where you play as Kairi in the traditionally Disney-looking worlds, which would justify keeping those while having Sora explore realistic-looking worlds.

Story wise, hopefully only a relatively brief blurb of what’s going down.

At that point it might as well be a whole separate game with Kairi. No other game with multiple protagonists have gone so far far to have separate sets of worlds (closest we got being Pranster's Paradise/Monstro in DDD), and I think it's been implied to expect a lower world count in KH4 because they're focusing on quality over quantity.

Keep it short and sweet, and show off Quadratum a lil bit. When it comes to story I just wanna see something that renews my faith a little bit bc I don't have much at all right now
