Four worlds were shown: The Land of Departure (Where young Eraqus & young Xehanort are), Twilight Town, Mount Olympus and the Tangled world. Looks beautiful.

As for gameplay, they are definitely moving forward with those ride abilities and even a revised free flow system that was originally from Dream Drop Distance. One question that has left me hanging was why Sora is wearing his DDD outfit at parts of the trailer? To access some of the power he obtained from DDD? That'd be interesting to see! The 'shooting' system looks fun as well.

And for those who haven't notice... The magic spell Areo is back!

Additionally, now I know where Xehanort supposedly obtained his Keyblade.

Holy shit, I fucking love this trailer. I'm watching it again.... AND AGAIN.

I notice that some parts of the footage look somewhat unfinished on the visual side. It doesn't look like we're getting any time soon.
Oh, I didn't mean flat in terms of lighting or textures or whatever. I just meant his hair literally seems more flat and matted down than in previous KH games.

But yeah, this isn't coming any time soon.

Maybe he's been swimming recently and the chlorine got to his hair? xD

Joking but not that I mind about it.

Now what are your bets, who comes first ?
  • KHIII
  • FFVII remake
The obvious is KHIII. That has gotten more development time than the latter.

It's not his DDD outfit. It's almost full black, whereas his DDD outfit has more red in it.
It actually is his DDD outfit, in a sense. According to Nomura, he said that new outfit is a combination between Sora's DDD outfit and Sora's KH2 outfit.

But what confuses me is that we see Sora wearing his normal outfit in the beginning of that E3 2015 trailer so why is that KH2 outfit still in KH3....?

Yeah, that's what I think as well. I don't if some of the footage shown is final in terms of the design of things.
Maybe that, or maybe we'll get to play with his old outfit for a while, during the beginning? I don't know, I haven't play DDD, so maybe there's no reason why he would use his older outfit lol.

Anyways, it looks really beautiful. UE4 is such a big jump compared to 3 (you could make original looking games there with talent and effort, but it was mostly samey games). I hope, however, that the visuals improve a little in certain aspects, but I wouldn't complain at all if this is what we got.

Gameplay looks really fun. As someone who grew up with the first one (the game that marked my childhood along with, especially, FF IX) and loved the second one, but didn't actually play many spin-offs (nor liked them), I'm quite excited to see how everything fares: both the returning elements and the new ones (as well as those I haven't experienced yet. Hopefully they make a remaster of every game for PS4 right before III's launch).

And the new outfit is cool, I guess, although I actually prefer II's by a large margin. I remember the first time I saw art of Sora's black robes in a magazine, I loved them so much.

Excited about this, hopefully they actually give us more info in less time. I expect something at TGS, I guess, as well as in November. Seems like the project is going well and I trust Osaka Team, so maybe the game will actually release soon (as in, 2017 or so!).

This is just me speculating here, but I have a hunch that there may be a new feature, where you can switch outfits, just as easy as you can change what keyblade you want to wield.

Also just to note, to those who feel that Sora's hair seems different:
It is actually. Just like how Riku got a haircut, Sora's hair is progressively changing as well, to show his maturing since the past games. The spikes at the top have been trimmed, the hair in the back has been slightly groomed, and his bangs have grown a little bit longer and are also slightly groomed. It's still bed hair, but neater in a subtle way.
