Finally KH3 is here, after 10 years of waiting, I'm sure everyone else is just feeling on top of the world as I do, kupo
Here are just some logical and personal assumptions about what have been shown in the newest KH3 trailer; first I want to say is that many of these thoughts have already been brought up by fans, I only combine them and add up with my own anticipations; second only read this if you like it, It's not my intentions to offend anyone else. Though its reasonable that you may choose not to read this because of its long texts, I would still like to share my thoughts and give myself something entertaining for a while, kupo
Okay, here it starts;
First the chess board is shown with golden ones (darkness) and silver ones (light), so its logical that its a clash between light and darkness.
Here YMX takes one from Eraqus's side, lets just mark it with NO.0
As for the rest, we have got red ones indicating dark side, blue ones indicating light side, and green ones that are unknown.
NO.1: Right after NO.0 is taken, Eraqus moves NO.1; it remains unknown what it resembles.
NO.2: Its Sora, the crown is the same as the one on his chest. NO.3: Its Kairi, its the same as her goodluck charm.
NO.4: Riku, pretty obvious.
There is also one looks identical to Riku's, which is assumed to be Diz, as he is another member on the light side who can use dark powers.
NO.5 & NO.7: Aqua/Terra, as its a mark of keyblade mastery.
Therefore it seems logical that NO.0 resembles Eraqus as they share very similar shape. Also in BbS, Eraqus was taken by MX at the beginning, therefore It can be assumed that NO.1 resembles Yen Sid, as it looks similar to NO. 5 & NO.7 with some minor differences, moreover, right after Eraqus was vanquished, Yen Sid started to make some moves.
Next its shown that NO.5/NO.7 has been positioned on the dark side and is taken by MX, therefore its logical that NO.5 resembles Terra as he was lured into traps by MX through the helps of Braig, and eventually comsumbed by the darkness, as NO.7(Aqua) still stands well on the light side.
NO.6: The king, if you can't tell it then its only reasonable that I doubt whether or not you're a KH fan.
NO.8: Lea, the shape looks very much like his firery keyblade.
NO.9: Ventus, it looks very similar to his keychain.
The here goes the dark side.
NO.* & NO.3: Vanitas and Vanitas Replica(?); though their shapes have some minor differences, they still resemble that of Void Gear. In BbS, Vanitas eventually returned to Ventus, therefore the one outside the field resembles him. Then who's NO.3? There really isn't a second character that has the same Void Gear keyblade as Vanitas, so its assumed that after the original Vanitas, MX has made a Vanitas replica for replacement, who also has a Void Gear keyblade.
NO.1: Ansem/ Xemnas: They share the same unmissable identical shape, therefore its logical that they are MX's heartless and nobody.
The one that is taken by NO.2 (Sora) should be Ansem, as chronically after Terra was taken, Sora made the next move of defeating MX's heartless.
NO.4: Saix, the moon shape is unmissable.
NO.5: YMX, the sandglass resembles his keychain.
NO.6: Luxord, there is no character that has a connection with gambling other than him.
NO. 7 and others: Unknown, there is no proof or hint of who they resemble; its assumed that they resemble the apprentices from CHI, as their shapes share some similarities to the one on Foretellers' Text.
Either that, or they can resemble MX's new vessels, as they also look similar to his keychain.
NO.??: Terranort/ Apprentice Xehanort (?), it looks very similar to MX, Ansem/Xemnas, therefore it can be Terranort/Apprentice Xehanort, as although it has some minor differences in comparison, it still resembles MX's vessel. Its also convincible as it stands against Diz.
That has been the whole summary of a series of analyzing and assumpations, thank you for spending your time reading if you have followed from the start to the end. I hope in the next E3 trailer Nomura can give some more.
Next I'm going to talk about the possible theories behind Chi and Unchained Chi, have a nice day, kupo
