Here are a few screenshots to look at while you wait.

Square Enix showcased the latest trailers for Kingdom Hearts III and Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue at the D23 Expo Japan Kingdom Hearts Premium Theater event today.

Unfortunately, the trailers have yet to be published online.

The Kingdom Hearts III footage didn’t introduce a new world, but it did showcase a new Heartless and Nobody, as well as a new Attraction Flow attack seemingly based on Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters. There’s also the complete version of the chess scene with young Xehanort and young Eraqus from the previous trailer.

The upcoming Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue package includes Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance HD, Kingdom Hearts Chi: Back Cover, and Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth by Sleep: A Fragmentary Passage.

Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8

Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth by Sleep: A Fragmentary Passage is a completely new title that leads up to the events of Kingdom Hearts III. The new trailer showed Riku, Kairi, and Mickey together at Yen Sid’s place.
