Square Enix revealed a new trailer for the Kingdom Hearts III game at the D23 Expo Japan event on Saturday. The trailer confirms a Monsters, Inc. world, and shows gameplay from that world. Square Enix is also streaming an English-subtitled version of the video.

Square Enix also revealed that Hikaru Utada's theme song for the game is titled "Don't Think Twice." The company is streaming a video featuring the song.

Square Enix Japan is streaming a similar video featuring the Japanese version of the same theme song, titled "Chikai" (Oath).

Kingdom Hearts III is slated for both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles this year. Epic Games is assisting with the game's development, using Unreal Engine4.

The game's Toy Story world will feature an original story. The game's other confirmed new worlds so far include Tangled and Big Hero 6, and the returning Olympus Coliseum world.

Square Enix first announced Kingdom Hearts III in 2013. The company stated on May 11 that the game was slated for release "in the next three years."

Game director Tetsuya Nomura has noted that the game will have another playable character besides Sora. Nomura has also said that developers are focusing on the PS4 and Xbox One releases before a possible release for the Nintendo Switch, adding that after the PS4 and Xbox One versions have shipped, "maybe we can start thinking about other possibilities.”
