New Kingdom Hearts 3 info coming at D23 Expo

Disney has announced that new information on Kingdom Hearts III will be shown off at August’s D23 Expo.

Aside from showcasing brand new details on the hotly anticipated RPG sequel, it has also been confirmed that developer Square Enix will bring a host of special guests and ‘surprises’ to the event.

Here’s the full press blurb from Disney: 

"In the Hall D23 presentation on Sunday, August 16, at 11 a.m., fans won’t want to miss never-before-seen gameplay, trailers, new reveals, and surprises from Disney Interactive’s most anticipated games. Among the games participating in the presentation are: Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition, Star Wars™ Battlefront™ from Electronic Arts, and KINGDOM HEARTS III from Square Enix.

"Interactive will showcase more Star Wars characters and Play Sets new to Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition and provide the entire audience with limited-edition giveaways exclusively for Hall D23. Electronic Arts will give guests an in-depth look at Star Wars Battlefront, the authentic Star Wars gaming experience coming November 17. Square Enix will also bring special guests and surprises to Hall D23 to reveal new information from KINGDOM HEARTS III."

Kingdom Hearts III is currently in development for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, though a release date has yet to be confirmed. Game Director Tetsuya Nomura said recently that the sequel will eschew Quick-Time Events and that while he knows when the game will be released, he’s not telling us.

It was recently suggested the game may include some form of online functionality, while the developers have said the game world will be a seamless experience with few loading times.
