Last night, Disney Interactive and Square Enix released a D23 Expo Japan edition of a gameplay trailer for their upcoming release, ‘Kingdom Hearts III,’ which will be available for both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles.

Reporting on Jay Rasulo’s appearance during a conference last week, Business Insider has speculated on a statement Disney’s CFO made regarding the future of gaming. According to the report, Rasulo has promised two ‘game-changing’ titles in the upcoming [fiscal] year, the first being ‘Epic Mickey 2,’ due out on November 18 and the second as-of-yet-unannounced title to debut at some point in 2013.
Cycling through a list of upcoming films and deeming none of them game-changing, the article jumps to the (hopeful) conclusion that the upcoming title is ‘Kingdom Hearts 1.5,’ a recently announced title known to be exclusive only to Japan. This speculation has spread like wildfire, being reported on several gaming news sites.
Square Enix, Inc., the publisher of SQUARE ENIX® interactive entertainment products in North America, announced today that KINGDOM HEARTS Re:coded for Nintendo DS™ will be available at North American retailers on January 11, 2011.
Sora’s journey in KINGDOM HEARTS II has drawn to a close, and now a new tale is set to begin.
Jiminy Cricket is looking over the journal he used to document his first adventure with Sora when he discovers a mysterious message. He didn’t write it – so how on earth did it get there? King Mickey is determined to find out, so he and his friends decide to digitize the journal and delve into its deepest secrets. Inside this “datascape” dwells a second Sora who is about to embark on a grand adventure of his very own.
With absolutely no game description, no release date, no game rating and no game title, Square Enix has confirmed that it plans to release a 3D chapter in the Kingdom Hearts series for the Nintendo 3DS, the new portable gaming device that introduces 3D gameplay without the need for glasses.
During a presentation for the new game platform, Nintendo of America also announced that it has reached agreements with multiple studios to release 3D films for playback on the platform, including Walt Disney Studios. Disney’s Tangled was used, in part, to help demonstrate the new product.
