New Kingdom Hearts 3 trailer - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IcXi3ouyGkA

So, a new KH3 trailer has dropped, and finally some plot details!

As expected from her build-up in the second game, Maleficent is back with her crony, Pete, and she's up to no good. We see the two of them have a brief exchange with Hades in a world that appears to be the home of the gods on Mt. Olympus; Hades appears to be in the middle of invading the place with the Titans. Maleficent makes it clear she's not there to help him, but is instead after information regarding a "distinctive black box". Could be of similar importance as the Keyholes of the original game.

Sora is attempting to bring Roxas back? The trailer shows an exchange between Sora, Xemnas, and Xehanort's Heartless (both of whom have also somehow returned). Xemnas questions Sora about how to bring back that which "should have never existed in the first place", and that the only way would be to "call upon the darkness". Will Sora have to become a Heartless again in order for Roxas to return? Why does he need Roxas?

Not much else to analyze beyond that. The graphics and scale look amazing. Like seriously, the game looks HUUUUGE. The battles look intense and as KH as ever. I'm just going to have to get used to the more realistic graphics for some of the characters.

Looks like we can look forward to another new trailer next month, which will feature a new world. Glad to see the ball is finally rolling.

I'm kinda digging Sora's toy form. ^_^

I've never played a Kingdom Hearts Game, but I might get into the series given how FRIGGIN GOOD LOOKING the graphics for the Toy Story world are. It's like I'm actually watching the movie! (Okay, most of it is pre-rendered cutscene, but still)

It's a shame they probably won't be able to get Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, and John Ratzenberger to voice Woody, Buzz, and Ham.

This is all I could think off when watching the new trailer:
"Sora! Watch out, it's a heartless!"
"WHERE?!?"
"Ghahahahahahaha!"

I'm surprised nobody's bumped this yet. KH3 releases January 29, 2019 in NA and EU. Collector's editions have been announced:

There's also supposed to be a special KH3 PS4 Pro. I might have been tempted to get that $80 CE, but sadly, they got lazy as fuck with the cover art for the steelbook. I'd rather just get the normal box art.

Man, we've got FFXV and KH3 before the conclusion of NTE now.
The collectors Edition really does look kinda lazy. I'm not a huge fan of the Pin as well... Not tempted to get this.

I can't believe I've just now listened to "Don't Think Twice", I think I get just as hyped about the soundtracks of these games as I do with the game itself!

These just don't sound as good as Hikki's other stuff and I can't pinpoint why. Overproduced, maybe??

It is definitely a departure from her other stuff. While her music was never super simple (and clean, lol), it wasn't exactly challenging the status quo either. These new songs are experimenting with song structure, which makes them a little bit more challenging to digest, albeit a much more interesting aural experience, imh.
Don't Think Twice additionally has this "stumbling" phenomenon due to the beats 2&4 being slightly offset.
Face My Fears on the other hand suffers from the fact that it was produced by Skrillex, also it transitions rather jarringly between musical sections.

So I personally think those songs are a very interesting listen, due to lots of adventuring in how they're produced. For people who are looking for a normal pop song, they might not be as immediately gratifying as Simple and Clean was. Remember though, Sanctuary was already a departure from the super safe song writing of S&C. The underlying song writing is pretty strong though, so coupled with the fact that humans are creatures of habit and KH3 will stuff those musical motives down our throat, I think they'll end up as beloved as the first two theme songs.
