Q: Where does this fall in the timeline?
A: It's after every game in the series.
Q: Can I play this game without playing any other game in the series?
A: You can...You just won't understand anything that's going on, I recommend buying the All In One Edition for PS4 to 'understand' the story or watch a story explained on YouTube.

KINGDOM HEARTS III tells the story of the power of friendship as Sora and his friends embark on a perilous adventure. Set in a vast array of Disney and Pixar worlds, KINGDOM HEARTS follows the journey of Sora, a young boy and unknowing heir to a spectacular power. Sora is joined by Donald Duck and Goofy to stop an evil force known as the Heartless from invading and overtaking the universe.
Through the power of friendship, Sora, Donald and Goofy unite with iconic Disney-Pixar characters old and new to overcome tremendous challenges and persevere against the darkness threatening their worlds.
Gameplay in Kingdom Hearts III is similar to its predecessors, with hack and slash combat, which director Tetsuya Nomura stated would be along the lines of the system seen in Kingdom Hearts II, with an evolution similar to what was seen from Kingdom Hearts to Kingdom Hearts II, and closely tied to the gameplay in Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance, however, it is a lot flashier this time and you have the ability to summon "attraction flow" which is based off Disney rides.
Mini-games are back with a new set of mini-games called 'Classic Kingdom', Classic Kingdom is over 20 LCD like mini-games that are spread around the worlds to collect, play and earn rewards! Play Kingdom Hearts Union Cross now to play five of these mini-games to earn a special Keyblade! And of course, there are the more traditional mini-games that we are used to!
Note: Not every world is on here.
