What are the odds they show the trailer in the first half... because I'll be driving to work for the second :<

I think there is a good chance it will be in the first half. I believe they're gonna show Star Wars or Spider-man in the end.

Wow they managed to make a "huge" announcement over nothing really. We already knew about Toy Story since 2015.

 

I think it's really lazy they didn't even bother to dub the trailer.

But yay, 2018 it is. Unless they delay it again.

 

So back to silence until a December 2018 tweet about the delay?

Well not really people won't believe it until it will be announced.

 

I'm so speechless Toy Story is nr.1 in my list.

Yeah, in fact it's my No 1 too.

I was so convinced it'd be in KH3 I would have been devastated if it hadn't been in the game.

It does look amazing and I couldn't be happier.

 

I'm really so excited I'll be unfairly disappointed at every "short" announcement until I finally have my copy of the game haha

We all knew it was going to release sometime next year. Now its just a matter of what month and IF it will be a worldwide release or if JP will get it first like past KH titles. Im predicting sometime in November of 2018 for a worldwide release
