As you can see, the trailer shows Sora, Donald Duck and Goofy help "Hercules battle various forms of Heartless on Mount Olympus through gorgeous visuals and gameplay". Sora also has a new form that allows him to "perform special powerful solo and joint attacks on his enemies".

In addition to the new form, Sora will also be faced with a choice, all in the "effort to bring back an old friend."

The trailer also shows the game's villains and a potential maguffin in the form of a black box. "Black box?" Anyway, Hades, Maleficent and Pete reunite and talk about the black box for a bit before the action cuts back to Sora running around being awesome.

Kingdom Hearts III will launch for Xbox One and PlayStation 4, and a new trailer for the game will be revealed on 15 July during the D23 Expo.
