Kingdom Hearts 3 gets new trailer, weaponized teacup ride

After many delays and fakeouts in Square Enix's E3 2015 conference, we finally got an extended look at the upcoming Kingdom Hearts 3 (opens in new tab). The trailer opened with what appeared to be a young Master Eraqus and Master Xehanort debating over the nature of - what else - light and darkness. Then we're thrown headfirst into the spectacle of KH3, however much of what was shown was an extension of features already announced.

A lot of emphasis was placed on the theme park ride-based attacks, such as summoning the tea cup ride or swinging ship to attack enemies. Sora - who was sporting a new red-and-black look - also morphed his keyblade into a variety of over-the-top firearms to launch a barrage of fireworks at his foes. Between these over-the-top abilities and the massive packs of enemies Sora was facing, it looks like this Kingdom Hearts will be played on a much grander scale than what has been seen in the series past.

Of course, the most important piece of information - the game's release date - remains buried among the many mysteries of Kingdom Hearts. But we'll be sure to keep you updated with all the latest details as E3 2015 continues.
