New Kingdom Hearts III image shown at MAGIC 2017

At the Monaco Anime Game International Conference (MAGIC), Kingdom Hearts series director Tetsuya Nomura held a presentation on his career. This presentation included a brief mention of Kingdom Hearts III, with a new screenshot being shown. (via @TheSharePlayers)

KH3 Magic Screenshot 1


In this screenshot, we can see Sora in Olympus Colosseum using Guard Form with a new shield-based transformation for an unrevealed Keyblade. He also appears to be battling a new type of Heartless. Additionally, one of the command menu slots displays the word "Link", possibly as part of this new transformation. Finally, the wording for the yellow gauge near Sora's health has been changed from "EX" (as seen in the Jump Festa 2015 trailer) to "Focus", matching the format seen in Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth by Sleep -A Fragmentary Passage-.

A close-up shot of Guard Form can be seen below, thanks to @RedMakuzawa.

KH3 Magic Screenshot 2


Unfortunately, no new trailer is confirmed at the moment according to @RedMakuzawa. Only the screenshot was shown at the presentation.

UPDATE 1: A higher quality, direct feed image of the screenshot can now be seen thanks to the official Kingdom Hearts twitter account.

KH3 Magic Screenshot 3


UPDATE 2:

According to Gameblog.fr, Nomura stated the screenshot takes place in the city of Thebes. The Keyblade has the ability to change into a lot of things, some of which are the aforementioned shield and a chariot. He also clarified that the new form in the screenshot is the Power Form, which contradicts the information that we received last time about Power Form. We'll bring clarification as soon as we get it.

UPDATE 3: The quote from Tetsuya Nomura regarding Power Form has been translated and clarified thanks to Dandelion from KHInsider.

This is the first time we're showing this screenshot of Kingdom Hearts III, it's happening in Thebes and they are fighting a new type of Heartless. The Keyblade can transform into a lot of things. When in Power Form it can be changed into a chariot.


It says something about how starved we are for information that a single screenshot causes me to squeal in excitment.

Not much to say, though, other than that Heartless looks awesome.
Spoiler


(Now show me a playable Kairi - or at least her as a party member - and my soul will belong to Nomura forever.)

Yay, looks like a (mini) boss to me xD

Also Donald and Goofy aren't there... It's either because of the drive form, or they're just lazy :P

Jesus! What in tarnation is that!?

I thought that was called Guard Form and Power Form was the red one with the hammer.

Jesus! What in tarnation is that!?

yes what is that? Its not a keyblade and if it is I found the winner for the ugliest weapon of 2017

It's not very clear. Sora looks cool though.
That's a big Heartless for such little HP.
OMG! Olympus Coliseum looks clean!
Bigger and a better version!

Wow. This is amazing!

The shield transformation looks to be that of the unnamed Olympus Keyblade we briefly saw from the E3 2015 trailer. You can see it right before it transforms into the chariot. Only difference seems to be the spikes protruding from the clouds, though they might have been added later on in development or the spikes just might not show during its transformation into the chariot.

 

EDIT: You can also see it in the reveal image for Guard Form.

This is possible a "Revisit" to Olympus Coliseum rather then the first time as Sora has...A LOT of HP?

The UI might be temporary

Sora'a face looks amazing on the UI! I think his face looked very ugly on the UI 2015 but now it looks so clean and improved! :)

I hope SE & Nomura don't dare rushing this game like FF15!

Its a keyblade transformation for Hercs Shield specifically made for guard form

Also

"Using Power form", "unrevealed Keyblade"

Seriously ?

 

Edit : Oh, so this one is the power form, that's weird

What a way to start my morning: A new KHIII screenshot! xD
Looks so good. Sora, the Heartless, the surroundings... awesome! :)

Great screenshot!

I think it's a little weird that only the NA twitter account has posted an official screenshot. Is the JP account just being lazy,or is it something else...?

So instead of going to a Town Near Thebes, we'll actually get to go to Thebes itself in KH3? Cause that would be awesome, actually.

Nice screenshot :)

I thought it was called Guard Form? Oh well, it's still a cool screenshot. Hopefully this means we'll get to explore more of Thebes than just that one square...it wasn't even Thebes, it was a Town Near Thebes.

 

Also, considering how Olympus Coliseum has literally been confirmed as the first world we go to, this all but confirms multiple visits to worlds' stories, unless that hulking brute of a Heartless is seriously supposed to be a regular field encounter (in which case, AWESOME). New clothes, new abilities, higher HP and tougher enemies, it's looking like at least a second visit to each world is possible, which I am excited for as it will allow for more time to pace the overall plot like KH2 did.

A little disappointed they're committed to the animated faces for the UI I'd prefer an animated one but, everything's looking great so far. Also if we get more movie based cutscenes, I need the "only 'ol furball survived scene" or with Donald.
Looking awesome. And I love that they're only showing us stuff from what is presumably the first world we visit (and maybe a revisit, but still).

Cool! Nice screenshot. Wonder if there will be any more content revealed in the short term.
