Director Tetsuya Nomura said the following regarding this image:

“This is the first time we show this screenshot of Kingdom Hearts III.  It’s happening in Thebes and they are fighting a new model of the Heartless. The Keyblade turns into a lot of things. Here it is a shield, but it can also be transformed into a chariot. This is called Power Form.” (Gematsu)

Interpretation

This new Kingdom Hearts 3 screenshot reveals a few things. First of all, it reveals a new Heartless model that looks awesome. Also because the enemy Health bar in the top right corner is so small for such a large opponent, it looks like it might be a Heartless with multiple body parts that need to be defeated, or one part that needs to be defeated multiple times.

The Keyblade is also shown as a shield. This has been shown before, so this is just more of a confirmation, and not really a revelation. However before it then turned into the chariot pulled by Pegasus. 

The command menu looks more like the command menu in Kingdom Hearts 0.2: Fragmentary Passage, than previously released screenshots. I think this is because of the “Power Form” that Sora is currently in. His clothes are also Orange-brown instead of the usual red, matching the Command Menu. 

Nomura also said the screenshot is “happening in Thebes”, not “Olympic Coliseum” but “Thebes”. This could mean that the world of Olympic Coliseum could be expanded into a world similar to the one in Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep.
