Kingdom Hearts III - E3 2018 Square Enix Showcase Trailer

Kingdom Hearts III - E3 2018 Square Enix Showcase Trailer

Hopefully this might change leading up to Kingdom Hearts III's release on January 29th, when it may become available from specific retailers. Nevertheless, you are able to see from the image above that both the console and its DualShock 4 wireless controller features graphics that were inspired by Kingdom Hearts 3.

After a very familiar opening that shows off the world of Arendelle in the Kingdom Hearts universe, the trailer begins to show snippets of new footage, including what appears to be a cooking mini game with Remy from Pixar's Ratatouille.

If you've never played a "Kingdom Hearts" game before, here's the extremely short version. Just Cause 4 was the same - a competent trailer, but one that fans had basically seen during the Xbox showcase. As bonuses are revealed, we'll list them here too.

Outside of that, there was a sneak peek at a new title called The Quiet Man, which at first glance seems to be a title devoted to a deaf man punching Hispanic dudes in alleys throughout NY. We already know about some of the big titles to expect, but there should be a few surprises as well (Final Fantasy 16?). The teaser showed nothing worth clinging to otherwise.

Square Enix's E3 presentation is now over as quickly as it started, and many people are sounding off about the conference with some calling it the worst one of this year's E3. Square Enix revealed some cinematic cutscenes as well as gameplay of the main protagonist slashing a dragon with a giant sword, riding a horse throughout the world and wielding an interesting "Light" power that seems to be the focus of the game.

E3 2018 marked the return of Square Enix, as the company last held a press conference at the annual event in 2015.
