Nomura did explain, however, that he was determined to show players the progress they've had throughout the years at an event. The event he was talking about maybe the D23 event, which will take place on July 15.

"Kingdom Hearts 3" is set to be released for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and is set to take place in "Tangled"'s Kingdom of Corona, "Big Hero 6"'s San Fransokyo, and Olympus ("Hercules"), Mysterious Tower, and Twilight Town. Returning characters include Riku, Donald Duck, Goofy, King Mickey, Master Xehanort and Master Eraqus.

The game is directed by Tetsuya Nomura and Tai Yasue and produced by Rie Nishi. Fans of the franchise should expect another trailer for the game during next months' D23 Expo happening on July 15.
