Kingdom Hearts: Where you consort with literally everything between street kids and gods.

What would a Kingdom Hearts game be without Twilight Town? This isn't the first time we've seen it the familiar town has been making appearances for years in trailers it's nice to get a better look at it. Even if sometimes the town is, you know, swarming with Heartless:

This new batch of screens also comes with new character renders, and for Twilight Town, we get a better look at Hayner, Olette, and Pence:

Moving on to another long-standing location in the series, we've seen several scenes from Hercules' stomping grounds of Olympus. It seems there may be more going on in this world this time around, since sometimes the realm of the gods is just a backdrop for a battle arena world. Granted, that's pure speculation on my part, but it seems possible as since we're seeing everyone from a host of Titans, to Pete, Maleficent, Zeus, Meg, and the ever-wonderful (and sometimes questionably imitated) James Woods-voiced Hades:

There will no doubt be more to come, with a few months remaining until release. Look for Kingdom Hearts III on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on January 29th, 2019. If you have resisted the HD re-releases so far, on October 30th you can get a comprehensive pack of all of these releases (1.5, 2.5, and 2.8) packaged as Kingdom Hearts: The Story So Faron PlayStation 4 for a scant $39.99 USD.
