Square Enix announced on Twitter last night that Kingdom Hearts III will be playable during this year’s E3 expo. So if you’re a Kingdom Hearts fanatic and you don’t have a pass to go to the show, you might want to get on that. After all, Gamer Passes are still available for show, and this year they’ll only set you back $249 USD.
Thank you to all those who attended the #KH3Premiere last week! Fans can get their very first chance to play @KINGDOMHEARTS III at Square Enix's #E32018 booth!🎮 Hope to see you there! ❤️ pic.twitter.com/ik7ggNTayY

Presumably, the demo will be the same one media got a chance to play last week during the Kingdom Hearts 3 Premiere event. But it will be the first time the game is playable for fans. You can check out the demo at the Square Enix booth over in South Hall, booth #2001. At least, that’s what the E3 floor plan says.
The game will come with at least nine worlds, and we know Toy Story and Mount Olympus from Hercules are two of the playable worlds. Giantland is supposed to make an appearance at some point, but we don’t know if it will be playable or just seen in cutscenes. And, as always, Utada Hikaru wrote the game’s themesong. This one is a little more haunting than usual, which is saying something.

Kingdom Hearts III is set to release on PS4 sometime this year, though a release date ought to be inbound.
The latest trailer, featuring the Classic Kingdom mode, is below.
