Press visitors such as Finaland have managed to sneak a peak at the Square Enix products in display at the event, including a prototype for Kingdom Hearts III Sora Play Arts Kai, which was recently announced and is available for pre-order at the North American branch of the Square Enix Store.


Prototypes for Organization XIII Roxas Play Arts Kai and Kingdom Hearts Static Arts figures of Kingdom Hearts II Sora, Chirithy, Shadow, and Meow Wow are also in display; these were previously revealed at the San Diego Comic Con.


Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue will also be playable as a demo at the event.

Right, so, after finally having played both 3D Demo and 0.2 Demo I can say: Let december come.

If 0.2 is based on KH3, then we will have an awesome game.


Here are my impressions


3D - Movements are amazing! They look fantastic, they feel fantastic. The Flowmotion is better than it was because it's got a bigger screen.


Since the movements are now faster, you might notice that you'll have some time getting a hang of the controls, but you'll adapt much faster because the console can keep up with you.


Getting into the dives that you can do with objects is easy.

Press 2 buttons at the same time.



Camera control was a bit odd, but I think it was because of the setting that was being used.


The command system, playing in a home console is always different. But it still felt great. The fact that you can easily access it is really nice.


I'm not sure if there's any shortcut to merge with the DreamEaters, but there should be.


The only way I found of doing this was using the D-pad and that's highly annoying.


Played 3 parts that were possible, Sora in Traverse Town just before the first boss fight.

Riku Cité de Cloches just before the boss fight and then Riku in Tron World that is a bit longer.

You manage to do the race course and then fight a explore a bit more of the world and I think it ends with you meating the original of the bad guy.


Overall it's going to be awesome to play this in the PS4.




0.2, we've all see the gameplay, but playing it is entirely different.


The movements - amazing. Aqua looks stunning!


Her magic attacks, oh my god. The realization of what Blizzard, Fire and Thunder should actually be. Thunder when used in multiple succession actually creates a much bigger thunderstorm and rains down all around you. The enemies get stunned from this. The visual was gorgeous.


You see that I keep talking about the visuals, because that was the thing that struck me the most in this demo. The colour pallet chosen was brilliant. Really good option.


There is more to what's going to happen than what was showed in the demo, that's for sure. But the demo is really nice. You start by not being able to do most of the things that you'd expect a character from BBS to do (shotlock, dash and use transformations) and you end up being able to do all 3.


The fight against the swarm of heartless was a visual spectacle. They move amazingly. The movements they do towards you are really well done. And the way they look even better.


Plus, you get to use all of Aqua's abilities against the heartless swarm. Meaning, transformation, magic, shootlock.


All in all, I can't wait to play the actual game. I feel like it's going to be a good entry point to 3.

How much do these cost? I remember the Play Arts for DDD Riku and Sora but had trouble finding them...

I don't know where you live but I suggest looking up the Square Enix website for your country. There is a chance you can buy it there.



I do know they are selling it in the North American store here:



And it costs $149.99


I do know that if you can find a local Anime convention or store you might be able to find a figure there next time your looking for any Kingdom Hearts merchandise
