The other two trios? Who else is left? Kairi and Riku look to be in Melody of Memory, The Xehanort stuff is on Dark Road. Union X is still going on. The BBS and Twilight gang are the only ones not covered at the moment, unless they make like...in Ava game.

In the 5 min soundtrack trailer shortly before the end there is a part labeled "Second memory" while showing off Axel/Lea and Sora both together with Roxas, so maybe that's one of the two incorporating the "twilight gang"-side of things while the last one is something with TAV.

If it’s just for a 2020 release window, then probably a Fragmentary Passage type game and the rumored tv show perhaps.

If it extends beyond 2020 then maybe DDD2 and Verum Rex.

Wow. I'm still trying to process all of this.
I just hope UX/ Dark Road is the only mobile title and the two unknown projects are for PS4/XBO or Switch.
I'm as hyped as I can be, but I'm also worried that the KH series will spread too much across different systems... again.

One is probably KH4 itself. Saving Sora probably IS the KH4 plot at this point.

Unless Sora is who saves himself I don't think so, because KH4 as a numbered title should have Sora as the main character.
But that wouldn't be bad, as long as we don't have to wait forever.

My guesses for the two spots are the Shibuya/Shinjuku game and the eventual KH4

EDIT: Oh wait this is just for 2020? Then maybe one spot is just for the tv series

Will it be Verum Rex and KH4?
Or will they pay attention to the same TAV trio or Lea and Isa and their lost girlfriend?
Will KH4 come out much later than these two slots?
Edit:
Could you please explain in the trailer two empty slots were indicated and still can not understand this announcement of KH only in 2020? Or are these two slots made for two full-fledged future games in a series like Verum Rex and KH4?

What happened to the tv series? Nothing on that at all. The fact that Square hasn't mentioned it with all this KH news going around makes me wonder.

I’m most curious about those empty boxes and the fact that have arrows pointing up/down.

The flow of the first arrows seem contained in the first two sets of boxes. We start in the empty lower box, move into Re:Mind, go back down into a larger box with fuzzy text in it (unless there’s an example of a higher quality version somewhere?). We then get an arrow which moves into Dark Road.

The next arrow doesn’t connect with Dark Road. Seems to me like it’s beneath MoM. It flows down into an empty box, then back up into MoM. It doesn’t connect or “flow” into anything else.

The last two empty boxes on the upper layer all connect like the first set with Re:Mind/Dark Road did. Since we don’t have games/whatevers to fill these I’m gonna call the boxes KH-Phase2-1 and KH-Phase2-2 since I was confusing myself by using the word ‘box’ so many times.

From KH-Phase2-1, the arrow moves down into an empty box, but the arrow pointing up from it seems positioned almost directly in between KH-Phase2-1 and KH-Phase2-2. It’s ever so slightly more pointing at KH-Phase2-2. Just skims the edge of the box. After that, an arrow points down from KH-Phase2-2 into a small box, like the one at the start.

And yes I am a giant saddo having sat here an analyzed boxes in a Kingdom Hearts trailer.

It struck my interest since it reminds me of the “movement map” or whatever you’d call it for stuff like Pokémon Bank and Home. I don’t know what the arrows could be referring to, though. It’s not we can ‘move’ items, equipment or characters from ??? into Re:Mind which we can then, via another channel, move into Dark Road.

Is it indicating the movement of a character(s), maybe? As in, movement through time? Maybe some form of inter-game connectivity will begin going forward (please goodness no)? Maybe I’m overlooking something really obvious like a giant dumb dumb? Or maybe it indicates the trailer editor and Nomura can troll me super hard?

Ah, Boxes. My favourite Organization member.
