Kingdom Hearts III just seems to keep popping up at all of these E3 showcases today. For the third time, a new trailer promoting the long-awaited collaboration between Disney and Square Enix invades an E3 press conference.

This time though, we see something brand new, ship combat in the Pirates of the Caribbean. Jack Sparrow and other characters from the live-action movie franchise return, as Sora uses the guns of the Black Pearl and his physical abilities to take down enemy pirate ships.

We also get a full blown story-dump, showcasing Sora, Goofy, Donald, and many of the Disney villains, heroes, members of Organization XIII and more go through exposition.

After Kingdom Hearts III goes through its third trailer for the day, we see something new, an all-in-one package of KH III, as well as KH 1.5 and KH 2.8 Remix, fully remastered in HD. No price point was given for this package, but the collection is likely going to be released on the official date of January 29th.


Quick Take

Kingdom Hearts III has been a very busy game at E3 this year. Three big showcases in a single day, each of them dropping tidbits of story and characters and hints of the world’s players can be in. Square Enix is going all out with Kingdom Hearts III, making sure it is noticed by the fanbase regardless of which conference they watch.

The announcement of their all-in-one collection with 1.5 and 2.8 Remix is also a good move too, considering a lot of players will need to play those games to get the full breadth of the entire Kingdom Hearts storyline at this point. The only thing now is a price point and release date for it, although I doubt it will miss the January 29th window.
