Square Enix raised the curtain on a wealth of new Kingdom Hearts III reveals today, including a trailer featuring a new world. Joining the series pantheon of familiar Disney locations, Pixar’s Toy Story finally makes the jump to the Kingdom Hearts universe when the game launches in 2018.

The new trailer follows Sora, Donald Duck and Goofy to Andy’s room as they join Woody, Buzz Lightyear, Hamm, Rex and Sarge’s investigation into the disappearance of their fellow toys and Andy, and the emergence of the Heartless enemies in their world.

“At long last, we are excited to open up the Kingdom Hearts universe to include the world of Disney•Pixar’s ‘Toy Story,’” said series director Tetsuya Nomura. “I’m sure fans have been anticipating the inclusion of this world for many years. The narrative will be an original story exclusive to Kingdom Hearts III, and the gameplay will feel characteristic of the ‘Toy Story’ style and aesthetic. Please stay tuned for more details to be revealed soon.”

  • Starlord

    He finally commits to a release window. The world is ending! :p

    Sora, Donald and Goofy’s appearance in this world compared to everyone else is gonna take me some serious getting used to at first, but hey, at least we have an idea of when the game is coming out right. That’s something!

  • Starlord

    A release window from the guy that has a problem giving release windows (at all), makes me feel like this is the truth :P.

    At times I was not so impressed with a trailer for a game. I think since E3 last year. This is simply spectacular, a treat! Majestic, incredible, phenomenal! Congratulations to Nomura and his team for having achieved this quality.

    just curious, if the events from the previous side games play a major roll in understanding the story for KH 3, why is KH3 going to Xbox if Xbox never got the previous games re-releases? ( ignoring the inevitable Xbox/microsoft sucks, ps4 for the win, git gud replies ) not really the best marketing on SE’s part lol.

  • Carlos Rojas

    My question here is: Will Tom Hanks dub Woody??

  • MS payed Sqaure for KH3 on Xbox. It’s as simple as that. Of course the side games matter.

  • If you look closely at Buzz and Woody’s attacks they currently have some of Hercules’s animations for some reason.

    This made my morning.

  • Randy Marsh

    That’s my question also, tbh I’m kind of expecting Jim Hanks playing Woody in this.

  • Glad they’re shooting for 2018.

    I used to find their Atlantica and Lion King-appereances hard to get used to. ^^

  • NoctLightCloud

    This trailer is fantastic in every aspect!!! Nomura is pretty good at making trailers, I remember the feelings when I first saw the 2.8 trailer. Nice work!
    (Also, all the XV/VSXIII trailers I liked happened to be under the direction of Nomura.)

    toy story, bitch

  • This is one of those trailers that basically has it all. A little story, lots of gameplay, and lots of surprises.

  • NoctLightCloud

    Toy Story made me cry, and KH made me cry. This world will be lit!

  • wow… the graphics are so good that it is like the 90s film is being played to us in real time
