Meanwhile, the Kingdom Hearts 3 opening video just debuted, featuring the opening song "Face My Fears" by Utada Hikaru featuring Skrillex, which our own Ozzie Mejia has broken down for your reading pleasure. There's also a special Disney event happening soon, to celebrate the impending release of Kingdom Hearts 3 that you won't want to miss.

For a limited time, Disney Springs guests can be the first to try out the Kingdom Hearts 3 demo. Plus, anyone who goes before January 25 will be the first to try out the game in the first place – it's coming January, after all. The event will feature a fun pop-up experience with a Keyblade exhibit and life-size replicas taken from the game as well as character-inspired artwork, digital kiosks to pre-order, and exclusive merchandise to take home.

Square Enix is really pushing Kingdom Hearts 3, understandably of course, so we can't wait to see what comes of this VR experience and all the other fun stuff going on in anticipation of the game. In the meantime while you wait, there's always plenty of trailers to check out and salivate over.
