KINGDOM HEARTS 3 Final Battle Trailer

What a surprise! The KINGDOM HEARTS 3 Final Battle Trailer, which was originally scheduled to be released on December 18th at 5:00pm JST, has been rescheduled! According to Series Director Tetsuya Nomura, due to preparations having concluded early, they have decided to push the trailer’s release to December 17th at 9:00pm JST.

Watch the KINGDOM HEARTS 3 Final Trailer now, with the reveal of Riku as the second playable character!

As unexpected events began to unfold in the Disney worlds at the hands of the enemy's dark ambitions, the heroic trio of Sora, Donald, and Goofy find adventures ahead, from aquatic battles in the world of Pirates of the Caribbean to dances with the townspeople in the Kingdom of Corona from Tangled. The new footage also showcases Stitch from Lilo and Stitch as a special “link” (summon), as well as cooking-themed Ratatouille Keyblade attacks.
 
Footage of Kairi wielding a Keyblade and what may be a glimpse of Sora’s Nobody all point to new pieces of the title’s storyline.
 
Music for the trailer featured excerpts of the brand-new original KINGDOM HEARTS III opening theme song, titled, “Face My Fears,” produced in collaboration with internationally renowned singer-songwriter Hikaru Utada, eight-time Grammy® Award winning artist Skrillex and acclaimed record producer Poo Bear. The song will be available on Jan. 18, 2019.

The official website has also updated with an all new Systems page, where you can watch short videos of the various gameplay mechanics in action.

We cannot be done with Disney Worlds - someone explain it to me logically cos I'm going crazy here!

Look, we have that mystery figure who Saix is talking to, Saix himself and Demyx (who appeared in the opening) with his sitar.

That's three organisation members without assigned worlds - we know so far there's been a member of the Org per world with Xemnas, Ansem, Xehanort and the mystery figure (the 13th member) NOT having worlds of their own.

So Saix and Demyx still need worlds to be in.

I know a lot of you are bored about this but I need someone to talk to me about it! Doesn't this prove (along with the fact that Nomura hasn't said either way) that we have at least one Disney World left?

As much as this would kill me, I personally think Riku is gonna be the one to die.
I just cannot see that happening. Riku has appeared in more Kingdom Hearts games than Sora (Riku was directoy involved with 358/2 Days). Kingdom Hearts has always been affiliated with Sora, Riku and Kairi.

If anyone's going to bite the dust then it's going to be the Birth by Sleep cast or one of the former Organization XIII members.

Way too amazing for me to handle... Sora’s scream, so much emotion put into it, that was brutal. And if Scala ad Caelum is the official name for the world, I’m sold. I’ve always been a sucker for Latin.

Those black chains look like the ones Eraqus uses, only in a dark version. Interesting...

Oh, and on Riku being playable: Nice I guess, but nothing groundbreaking since we already had it twice.

And these floating guys in robes at the end with the weird masks/helmets? They look like a mixture of the Darklings from Ux and the Rhun Soldiers from Lord of the Rings.
Ah, so that was what I was thinking about the chains. I thought I’ve seen something similar to that but couldn’t quite point out what it is. Yeah, it does look like Eraqus’ chains in the fight against Terra.

About the masked ones, I thought something about the outfit reminded me of the armour Xion donned in the final fight in Days. The helmet, maybe?

What's crazy is that this isn't even the last trailer.

It's only the last one for 2018.

A former staff member of SEEU explained on Twitter that what they mean by “Final Trailer” is referring to this being probably the final trailer made by SEJ/Nomura. So SENA will likely release some more footage on their own later.

I thought they really resembled Eraqus keyblade armor
These really don't look anything resembling Eraqus to me:
Spoiler Spoiler: Weird guys Show


More like a mix of Darklings, and if we want to stay with KH-universe comparisons, and Vanitas' suit/mask and Xemnas' armor.

The helmets also have something draconian about them, almost like Bahamut from Dissidia NT.

Ah, so that was what I was thinking about the chains. I thought I’ve seen something similar to that but couldn’t quite point out what it is. Yeah, it does look like Eraqus’ chains in the fight against Terra.

About the masked ones, I thought the outfit somewhat resembled the armour Xion donned in the final fight in Days.
Eraqus' armor also uses them extensively while both Terra and Aqua use them on occasion, but their's are always golden aka light oriented.

It's also worth to note that whoever uses these dark chains seems to capture both Sora and Ventus at the same time.
Maybe it's a norted Eraqus?

On a side note, I am also intrigued by Ansem the Wise's words and interactions with Ansem SoD out of all people.

Oh, and during the dance part in Corona Sora is shown doing a break dance on a barrel...guess Ven's heart is still with him at that time, lol.

What the hell is YMX doing in San Fransokyo?

For all of those that wanted to see a more serious Sora can clap themselves on their back.
We all knew that the duck was next, after Sora's & Goofy's incident in KH & KH2 it was inevitable.

I'm starting to wonder if Cable Town/Scala ad Caelum is actually the final world that Nomura was talking about.

Cool trailer, but I really don't like how the princess worlds reference scenes from the film shot by shot. Sure this nothing new, but I never was a fan of the old games replicating the same scenes from their films. Like Let It Go & even the confrontation of Gothel. What!
You're telling me Sora is in the tower witnessing the fight between Rapunzel & Gothel?

Oh I don't think it's him in 12/13 different armor sets (didn't get to count how many were actually there). I just noticed stylistically they resembled his armor kinda with a mix of final form xion
I meant to quote the message that said Axel was gonna die. Idk how I messed that up lol

Ok...

I am gonna highlight some key bits here:

1) The reason I am personally annoyed about the lack of Disney Worlds is Nomura should have confirmed that there were no more DW after Pooh if that was the case, it set people up to hype over one or two more worlds that have turned out not to be true. I'm fine with 7 main worlds and Pooh BUT he should have stated that...

2) I am a tiny bit salty Radiant Garden isn't in the game :(

3) Xion's returning!

4) WE SAW SAIX!

5) DEMYX!!!!!! Who else noticed Demyx on one of the pillars????

6) Cable Town is AMAZING and at last we get confirmation that we CAN play there - I mean, why else would Sora be in that world?

7) I have to say... I know this trailer was called "The Final Battle" but I still could envision a "Launch Trailer" or something similar in January... This trailer did seem a bit rushed in the editing and it makes me wonder what didn't make the cut.

SO

I guess Princess and the Frog is dead BUT I still have a slight twinge of hope cos Nomura hasn't said "that's all folks" and I think it would be stupid business wise not to.
Who are you to say it's not smart business-wise?
The smartest thing to do is not say if there are any more Disney worlds because it will keep people's attention because everybody's staying hyped
