The third installment in Square Enix's action-packed franchise mashup of Disney's most beloved characters and its own Final Fantasy icons has been missing in action for more than a year — until now.
The new Japanese-language trailer halo drops series protagonist Sora into the midst of a squadron of armored Heartless (the series' central enemies), where he proceeds to make short work of the lot employing stylish spin-leaps, hovering flip-strikes and magical powers that leave devastation in their wake.
The trailer takes place on Mount Olympus, where Sora, Donald Duck and Goofy are helping Hercules battle as Disney villains like Hades, Maleficent and Pete banter about an enigmatic hidden item.
The teaser continues with glimpses of new areas, a gargantuan boss fight and hints of other gameplay goodies to come.
The trailer then becomes a trailer for a trailer, asking viewers to tune into D23 Expo 2017 on July 15, at which point Square Enix says it will "present a new world and new trailer" for the game.
