The past few weeks saw a goldmine for footage of “Kingdom Hearts 3” as Square Enix bombarded fans with one teaser clip after another. Among those that caught the attention of fans is the battle between Sora and Aqua, Comic Book reported.

While there wasn’t much to be gleaned from the footage, the reveal got fans even more excited to play the third installment of the franchise. But what got them even more ecstatic is another gameplay video has been released by Squad Enix that features a lot of the worlds included in “Kingdom Hearts 3.”

And this new revelation is even longer than the previous teaser clips combined as it lasts about half an hour. However, it isn’t pure gameplay as the panel transitions between the game and discussions about “Kingdom Hearts 3.” Of course, there were a lot of oohs and aahs as Sora, Donald, and Goofy jumped from one world to another while fighting off the Heartless along the way.

“Kingdom Hearts 3” is one of the most anticipated games that are coming out in 2019 and even managed to knock out “Final Fantasy 7 Remake” on the highly esteemed Famitsu leaderboard. Even Eminem admitted that one of his recent songs in his new album, “Kamikaze,” was inspired by the franchise’s opening theme called “Simple and Clean.”

The famous rapper said that the track was “one of the dopest melodies he ever heard.” But it isn’t just Eminem who has been attracted by the franchise as Pooh Bear and Skrillex are reportedly co-writing the theme song for “Kingdom Hearts 3.”

The new installment is going to be the game’s most engaging and expansive yet as it will feature gameplay and Disney locations that haven’t been included in the franchise before. The keyblade transformations alone offer a lot of versatility for players in how they will approach the game. Combine this with the game’s verticality and the upcoming installment is looking more and more like a home run for Square Enix. “Kingdom Hearts 3” has been slated for release on Jan. 29, 2019.
