Kingdom Hearts III

The Kingdom Hearts news just keeps coming this weekend! Thanks to KHInsider's Saken, we have some details on the future of Kingdom Hearts Union χ straight from D23 Japan!
First off, player vs. player battles are coming this spring! Though they won't be real-time, they're bound to be pretty intense! The developers intend for this to be a Coliseum-esque game mode. Make sure to prepare your best Keyblade decks!
Secondly, Union χ is going to start blasting forward with its main story very soon! This is bound to be especially exciting for players of the global version of the game, with the most recent events that transpired with the Dandelions...though we know from the Japanese version of the game that we still have a lot of Agrabah to get through first. But fear not! Once we get out of that desert for good, all Disney worlds in the game from there on out will be brand-new to the series!
On the subject of story, this one goes out to all you Kingdom Hearts conspiracy theorists out there—the Ventus you encounter in the game? He's "that Ventus." Look forward to Kingdom Hearts III for some resolution on that front!
That won't be the only link between Union χ and Kingdom Hearts III, either. Tetsuya Nomura says that the two games will be tied closely together, in something he calls Project Xtrace. We'll find out more later this year, apparently. But there's another, more literal tie between the two games—Kingdom Hearts III players will be able to access some kind of special surprise by connecting their game to Union χ!
In addition to all this news, there's the previously reported crossover collaboration between Union χ and Final Fantasy Record Keeper. The collaboration also includes a special minigame that unlocks in-game rewards for players of both games, depending on the cumulative score players around the world achieve!
What are you most excited for? Any new worlds you hope to see? What do you expect from the PvP mode? What are your crack theories for the story? Let us know in the comments below!

As expected, a new KH3 trailer was released during the Kingdom Hearts event at D23. Check out the epic new trailer below:
In addition to that trailer, a shorter trailer previewing Utada's new song, “Don’t Think Twice”, was also released:
As the Kingdom Hearts event at D23 comes to a close, here is a recap of KH3 information that was revealed during the event:
-Monsters Inc. world has been officially confirmed (meaning those leaked images were in fact real)
-Marluxia and Vanitas are set to return
-Still scheduled to release in 2018
-KH3 will have a new Utada song named "Oath" in Japanese, “Don’t Think Twice” in English
-New clothes revealed for Mickey and Riku
-Summons return (confirmed ones include Ariel and Dream Eaters)
In addition to that, a trailer will be released soon, and will be posted once it is available online.
Some fairly convincing screenshots appeared online, depicting a Monsters Inc. world, with Sora and Co. sporting new outfits, and fighting Unversed enemies. If real, the images show a clearly unfinished version of the game, in part because it has an Unreal Engine 4 debug menu overlayed, and the character portraits do not reflect their new looks.
The images were supposedly found on an FTP server, before being quickly taken down. Speculating on what could’ve happened: they may have been intended to be shared on an internal server (ie. for a progress report), but were uploaded to a public facing FTP instead.
But again, there is absolutely no confirmation that the screens are real, so take this with a grain of salt.
What do you think: do they look legit to you?
New screenshots have been leaked from KHInsider, giving us a better look at Donald and Goofy, as well as our first look at Boo. Check 'em out below:
