For those of us who haven’t died of old age, E3 2018’s biggest highlight (despite the wait) was the trio of Kingdom Hearts 3 trailers we were given. If you weren’t blown away by the Pirates of the Caribbean reveal of the Frozen section then you almost certainly 1) Have no soul and 2) Are currently humming the Kingdom Hearts 3 trailer song instead. But who sung it and what’s the song called? If you know your keyblades from your xblades then you might know the answer already, but for the rest of you: here’s everything you need to know about that Kingdom Hearts 3 trailer song.

The song in question, which played a key role in the first Kingdom Hearts 3 trailer shown at E3 2018 (y’know, the one where Aqua got Norted) is ‘Don’t Think Twice’. It made its debut during the D23 Expo trailer.
The Japanese version of the Kingdom Hearts 3 trailer song is titled ‘Oath’.
