As announced by the official Kingdom Hearts Twitter account, a new trailer for Kingdom Hearts III Re:Mind will be released in one week, on September 9th, 2019.
According to the Japanese Kingdom Hearts Twitter account, the Japanese version of the trailer will be releasing at midnight (JST) on September 10th (8 AM PT on the previous day), exactly one week after both the English and Japanese Twitter posts were made. A translation of this tweet follows, courtesy of Goldpanner,
This trailer will be releasing in the days before Tokyo Game Show 2019. While Kingdom Hearts III Re:Mind has been excluded from Square Enix's announced TGS lineup this year, it appears that announcements will still be made around the time of the event.

- A Letter from the Director -
Hello everyone, this is Nomura.With the combined efforts of all our staff, we have been able to reach the 4th anniversary for the Japanese version of this title. Of course, this milestone would not have been possible without the support from all the Keyblade Wielders around the world.
I would like to extend my thanks to all those that supported this title up to this point.
To express our gratitude, we will be distributing gifts consecutively everyday from Sep. 3, 2019 for 8 days counting down to the 4th anniversary.
On the 8th day, a new trailer for the currently in development KINGDOM HEARTS III: Re Mind will be released! The release of the trailer will be slightly earlier than when the final gift will be distributed, roughly around Sep. 9, 2019 8:00 a.m (PT) / 15:00 (UTC).
Unfortunately, I was unable to prepare an illustration to commemorate this anniversary. Instead, with the time gained, I have made great strides in progress with the story quests. Although I was unable to finish in time for the 4th Anniversary, starting from October, we plan to update the story quests four times.Now I would like to share with you all one scene each from the two stories that have already been completed as of this moment.
Very intriguing, right?
In regards to KH scenarios, I wrapped up the story for Re Mind, as well as the two story quests for UX. All that is left is to finish the remaining two story quests. However, I have received another mysterious request... Let’s just say this request involves an unannounced 3rd story line for KH. Once I complete this mysterious request, I’ll complete the 2 remaining story quests for UX. And once all of that is complete, the 3 story lines will ○○○○○○○……
Now that things have calmed down after the release of KH III, the KH Series has been growing with many more phases with many things in the horizon. Please continue to love and support KINGDOM HEARTS Union χ[Cross]!The other day, some UX Staff members came to me for some shocking consultation. I think a revolution of change may fall upon UX. The hint is “double-feature.”
Until next time!
—KINGDOM HEARTS Series Director Tetsuya Nomura
"It’s been a while, Nomura here. Because of all the staff’s hard work, we are able to celebrate the 4th anniversary [of KHUχ] like this. This was also accomplished thanks to the Keyblade users all around the world. Thank you very much.
"As a gratitude from the staff, we will start the 4th anniversary countdown starting today for eight consecutive days. On the last day, we will present a new trailer for the Kingdom Hearts III DLC “Re:Mind” that we are currently working hard on. We are planning to release the trailer on September 10th at midnight JST, slightly earlier than the present giveaway on the last day.
"I apologize for not being able to prepare an illustration which had become an annual expectation. However, I have been working on the main scenario. I was not able to prepare it in time for the 4th anniversary, but starting October, the main scenario will be updated four consecutive times. Here are scenes from each of the two scenarios I have finished writing.
“When I was still a young boy…”
“I’ve/They've already received the message.”
"Interesting, isn’t it?
"Regarding the scenarios for Kingdom Hearts, I’ve finished “Re:Mind” and two scenarios for “Uχ.” As I’ve said before there are two more scenarios coming up [for Uχ], but before that there is one mysterious scenario that’s been requested from the team, after which I am planning to return to “Uχ.” All I can say is that the mysterious one is an unannounced third KH line…* And in the third line, ○○○○○○○…** Interesting, isn’t it?
"It may feel like things have settled down since the release of KHIII, but the KH series is still moving towards a new phase so I hope you keep up with Kingdom Hearts Union χ[Cross]. Even the other day I was consulted by Uχ staff about something unbelievable, which means a revolution may be approaching Uχ. The hint is “double feature”. I’ll elaborate on this another time."
Kingdom Hearts series Director Tetsuya Nomura
*It's not clear what "third KH line" means here. We assume it either means a new world line/timeline in KHUχ, or a new Kingdom Hearts work entirely, as the word Nomura uses for "line" may also mean "work".
**The "○○○○○○○" symbolizes censorship, similar to "*******".
