The publisher unveiled a new trailer at Disney's fan convention D23 Expo this weekend and announced a 2018 release date.

At D23 Nomura took the stage during Disney's video games panel to announce another new world for Kingdom Hearts 3, one based on Toy Story.

When Sora, Donald, and Goofy enter the world of Andy's toys, they shrink down and become toys. After studying the Toy Story timeline, developers made a decision to place this Kingdom Hearts III adventure after the events of Toy Story 2. The safest bets would be fan-favourite Aqua or Riku, but maybe the team will surprise the fans making King Mickey controllable for the first time.

If Kingdom Hearts III came to the Switch after its initial launch on PS4 and Xbox One, would you still get it?

Tetsuya Nomura, the director of the recently unveiled Kingdom Hearts 3 title, has confirmed that a Nintendo Switch version of the game could happen sometime in the future, but only after the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions are completed.

There's still no release date for Aladdin , but we are following the story and will update as soon as a date is revealed. Mena Massoud takes the lead as the street-rat himself, with Power Rangers' Naomi Scott joining him as Jasmine.

Nomura also said that Kingdom Hearts 3 will allow players to bring more than two companion characters into battle with them, a pleasant side effect of moving onto newer hardware. "Don't focus on other platforms, '" Nomura told IGN.

Since the first Kingdom Hearts was released in March 2002 for the PlayStation 2, the series has expanded with several additional entries. Japan might say "well, we don't want any more on Xbox".

Either way, Kingdom Hearts III looks like it's shaping up nicely. Unfortunately the game is now set for a release in 2018, but the good news is that Square Enix and Disney have additional footage that they recently shared.

Still the work that Square Enix has done here is remarkable as they have managed to ideal the look of the movie in a playable video game.

Square Enix, Inc. develops, publishes, distributes and licenses SQUARE ENIX®, EIDOS® and TAITO® branded entertainment content throughout the Americas as part of the Square Enix group of companies. Returning worlds will include Hercules' Mount Olympus.
