There's been an awful lot of Kingdom Hearts III revealed so far at E3 2018 to make up for the fact that it's been delayed to 2019. After a new trailer during Sunday's Xbox E3 Briefing and an extended trailer during Monday's Square Enix Showcase, another Kingdom Hearts III trailer popped up during Monday's PlayStation E3 presentation. And this time around, it's a new trailer confirming a returning world from the second game.

Pirates of the Caribbean is back from Kingdom Hearts II, confirming another team-up with Captain Jack Sparrow. Sora and company can be seen in all-new pirate garb, along with new gameplay that takes them to the skies. They also meet up with other cast members Will Turner and Captain Barbosa.

On top of that, viewers got a first look at the Kingdom Hearts PlayStation 4 Pro, which will presumably be made available alongside the new game. If that's still not enough, newcomers to the series will be able to catch up with an all-in-one game package that includes Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD Remix, Kingdom Hearts 2.5 HD Remix, and Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue. This package will be exclusive to PlayStation 4

There's a lot to take away from this newest trailer, so look out for a detailed breakdown (yes, another one) on Tuesday morning. Kingdom Hearts III is set to release January 29 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
