Square Enix has released a lengthy gameplay trailer for the long-awaited Kingdom Hearts III, which goes on sale late next month. The popular video game franchise is well-known for blending iconic characters from the pantheons of both Final Fantasy and Disney. 

The nearly four-minute teaser features a ton of familiar faces like Hercules, Tigger, Jack Sparrow, Anna, Rapunzel, Remy, Woody, Buzz Lightyear, Scrooge McDuck, and so many others that helped make your childhood great.

Kingdom Hearts III goes on sale for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One January 29. 

Our next update takes us to the popular world of Fortnite, the online survival game that your eight-year-old cousin keeps learning those weird dance moves from.

The title's developer, Epic Games, has removed a specific weapon from the game, the Infinity Blade, which was deemed to be too powerful. According to Variety, it allowed those who wielded it to kill an opponent or knock down structures with just one hit. 

"We messed up and rolled out the Infinity Blade overpowered / without good counters, especially in the end game. The Infinity Blade has been Vaulted and we are re-evaluating our approach to Mythic items," reads a message from the official Fortnite Twitter account. 

Last on today's video game roundup is the addition of two new decks to Valve's virtual fantasy card game, Artifact.

Per the company's own website, two new decks — Dark Aggro and Death From Above — have been added in the 1.1. update as part of "The Call to Arms event."

Dark Aggro is heavy on spells that allow you to disentegrate opponents or force them to fight each other. Death From Above, on the other hand, focuses on your opponent's biggest weaknesses, knocking them off balance and exploiting gaps in their fortications.
