Though the game’s release is still a long way off, fans were treated to some exciting new footage of Kingdom Hearts III at Shonen Jump’s annual celebration.

Kingdom Hearts fans have been officially waiting for the next installment since 2013, but they’ve been unofficially waiting since Kingdom Hearts II was released in 2006.

A new official trailer for Kingdom Hearts 2.8 dropped at Jump Festa 2016 showing new footage for the final Kingdom Hearts game, which will allow its fans to play all the released games in glorious HD. More important, though, is the two minutes of video at the end that shows some brand new Kingdom Hearts III gameplay.

According to the description in the video, Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue contains the newly remastered Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance, the cinematics from Kingdom Hearts Unchained χ and a special all new chapter that takes place after the events of Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep.

▼ We love seeing our favorite characters in HD.
