Here’s the new trailer:

Developer Square Enix released Kingdom Hearts II in 2005. Since then there have been quite a few spinoffs and re-releases, including the compilations Kingdom Hearts 1.5, Kingdom Hearts 2.5, and Kingdom Hearts 2.8, and if you thought reading that sentence was confusing, imagine what it was like to write it.
