Many players have been eagerly awaiting for updates on Square Enix's role playing game "Kingdom Hearts 3." The game's creators and developers have been tight-lipped about the upcoming sequel but that will soon change, according to Tetsuya Nomura.

Game developers have been busy putting the final touches to the upcoming game "Kingdom Hearts 2.8." With the development team's focus on the said gaming title, new updates for Square Enix's "Kingdom Hearts 3" were not released. Series creator and director Nomura commented during an interview with Dengeki PlayStation, as cited by KH13, that they are set to unveil more information about the said sequel in the coming months.

Nomura also made mention of the enhancements that they made to the game's main character Sora. He teased of Sora's improved playability as compared to the game character Aqua. With Sora's capability to upgrade his keyblade, players will see further changes to the character's attack moves in the upcoming "Kingdom Hearts 3" game.

Meanwhile, previous reports have hinted of what players can expect from the upcoming game sequel. Apart from Sora, beloved Disney characters such as Donald Duck, Goofy and more will make their appearance in "Kingdom Hearts 3."

Similar to earlier versions, the game's various worlds will continue to feature Disney themed realms. Previous game installments have transported Sora and his friends to the underwater world of the classic animated film "The Little Mermaid." Some of the game's worlds even included a nod to the "Pirates of the Caribbean" movie, as well as "The Nightmare Before Christmas" and the "Final Fantasy" series.

However, "Kingdom Hearts 3" will not feature new "Final Fantasy" worlds. The game's co-director Tai Yasue made the revelation during an earlier interview with Gamespot. Yasue revealed that they were looking to incorporate more Disney worlds and characters to the upcoming sequel.

Developers have also been hard at work coming up with original worlds to be added to the game. Yasue explained, "We want the difference and variety, we don't want a lot of the same thing."

"Kingdom Hearts 3" is expected to hit gaming shelves in 2017. Watch the trailer below:
