Square Enix gave Kingdom Hearts fans another peek at Kingdom Hearts 3 today, with a new trailer for the role-playing game that debuted during the Kingdom Hearts Orchestra World Tour concert in Los Angeles.

Fortunately, for those who weren’t able to make it to tonight’s concert, Square Enix also posted a Japanese-language version of the trailer on YouTube.

At more than two minutes in length, the new Kingdom Hearts 3 trailer has plenty to absorb. There’s some flashy action from Sora, Goofy and Donald Duck, and a peek at some cutscenes featuring Maleficent, Hades and Pete plotting, presumably, some evil business. Viewers also get a look at Mount Olympus and some dramatic pointing from Xemnas.

The trailer culminates with a tease: Square Enix says that another trailer for Kingdom Hearts 3 will be shown at Disney’s D23 Expo on July 15. That trailer will reveal a new world.

Kingdom Hearts 3 is in development for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Incidentally, today’s trailer arrives on the four-year anniversary of the game’s original announcement at E3 2013.

Update: Square Enix posted an English-language subtitled version of Kingdom Hearts 3’s Orchestra trailer. You can watch that below.
