    Looks like we got everything from TGS, except a new World reveal. I'm not mad though. Next stop, Paris Games Week?! Hopefully it is, because Jump Festa is so far away.

New area of Olympus spotted as part of a Kingdom Hearts III demo in Del Mar, California

It seems Kingdom Hearts III really is showing up everywhere, even in the most unexpected places.

PlayStation's Road to Greatness tour's recent stop arrived at the Kaaboo Music Festival in Del Mar, California taking place September 14-16, and seemingly brought a demo of Kingdom Hearts III!

Surprisingly, an Instagram story from rod83092, who attended the festival showed a brand new screenshot of the Olympus world. You can check out the image below:

When asked about the screenshot, he said, "You begin near Athens I believe, headed towards Mt. Olympus. The point is to keep getting up higher and higher through the cliffs. You can use a dash gliding ability and fight many different heartless. It rapidly changes scenes until you get to the Rock Titan fight where you defeat him using Big Magic Mountain."

rod83092 also said, "You can choose either Olympus or Toy Box, no time limit at all until completed, and very different from the trailers [shown] before with different colors and environment areas."

The demo seemed to not include the "Premium Showcase" title.

*UPDATE [Sep 15, 2018]:* rod83092 has reported that taking photos within the truck has now been prohibited.

If anyone is interested in attending the Road to Greatness Tour, here are the tour dates!

This is great, but I think this oughta be put in the spoilers section.

Hopefully this means we get to meet Zeus in person; remember guys, minor reference =/= disconfirmation (at least not always, anyways).

Someone will move it..hopefully lol
Considering the music festival started on the 14th and is still going on until the 16th, this makes me think there's a chance that there might be a different demo or an extended demo at TGS. If it is a new or extended demo, this will show us what improvements have been made to the game combat and graphical wise. Hopefully the floaty combat that some people commented on is somewhat fixed by now.

I have to say though, the game is looking absolutely gorgeous and I can't wait to explore the much vaster worlds when this game comes out. I'm very excited!

I don't know why but people are actually convinced the screenshot is fake just because the demo was at a random music event and there had been no gameplay footage of it yet. This looks to legit to be fake. It is a bit curious why no one has taken footage of it yet though.

According to KHInsider's Post the Rock Titan Demo is an Extended Demo

Yeah, I know. I saw it sometime after I made this post.

Oh my god, it looks soooo beautiful!

quite different from how it looks in the film

quite different from how it looks in the film

 

true but I feel about it the same way that I do about the new spyro trilogy let them have creative freedom. While it is nice to have places from the movies exactly the way they were in the game it is also nice to see something completly new, I mean why make an adaptation if you just going to repeat everything point by point

to be fair its been mostly different with hercules so far

So beautiful!  :O I need to take some pictures when this game comes out! 

Oh my god, it looks soooo beautiful!


Just when I think it can't look any better

Nice! I'll be able to play it again within a few weeks.

I was over on the KHinsider forums and someone actually found another image someone uploaded (although it's pretty bad quality, it still gives a new look at the area).

goofy is gasping in awe at the beauty of that area

The person said nobody is allowed to take footage or pictures of the demos at the Playstation truck. A bit odd if you ask me but I suppose it's whatever. 

Dang, that screenshot be looking beautiful!!! I swear, every time we see something about this game, it only gets better and better! I can't wait to see how the finished product will look like! :D

Ofcourse we will meet him it is KH3 and we saw Sora already wearing a Keyblade with Zeus mark.

Well, considering Sora will visit the Olympus itself, not just the Colisseum, it was quite obvious he could end up meeting Zeus. And who knows?, maybe he will meet the other Gods too.

Exactly. It's best in my opinion to find a delicate balance of having surroundings which are familiar but also adapt them to suit the game and the narrative. Some Disney movies otherwise wouldn't be that suitable.
Not to mention that we haven't seen the entirety of Hercules' world. I doubt there's only one statue of Zeus in the entirety of Greece. So the gaps that we have can be used creatively to enhance the worlds created by Disney without modifying them cimpletely and beyond recognition.

As you said, it's kinda boring to just revisit the same old places 1:1. Of course I love seeing iconic buildings and settings, but the cuts would be drastic and unrealistic otherwise, especially when we consider how large worlds will be. I doubt major cuts can happen often this way to move from one area to the next.
Additionally, this is stilk SE working on it with original chadacters, so they shoukd be allowed to twist some things around a little. I mean, they're making entirely new plots for certain worlds to fit everything in.

Either way, I'm happy with how Olympus is turning out. I honestly have no reason to doubt the legitimacy of this screenshot because, quite frankly, it doesn't show anything groundbreaking. It doesn't confirm we will meet him in person and apart from that, there's not that much to see. Why bother faking something like that?
Monsters Inc. was a different matter because it was a new world that wasn't confirmed so you could get a lot of reactions out of that, but this is basically just an empty area, safe for a statue and SDG.
