Coverage: Kingdom Hearts Premium Theater event at D23 Expo Japan 2015


Toominator

To kick off D23 Expo Japan 2015, Disney and Square Enix are hosting a special event called the Kingdom Hearts Premium Theater. This is a private event in Japan, in which we expect some huge news for Kingdom Hearts III! Because we do not expect a livestream of the event, official or otherwise, we will be using this article to provide live updates in addition to articles covering any big announcements that come up. The doors will open at 10:00pm EST (7:00pm PT) and the event begins at 11:00pm EST (8:00pm PT). Make sure to stay tuned here, on KH13.com, and our social media pages for all Kingdom Hearts news from the Kingdom Hearts Premium Theater!

Anyone phone-streaming like last time? If they show a trailer and don't upload one later I'm gonna die inside

they've always released the D23 KH footage. No worries. The only time KH3 footage wasn't released was the one from the 2.5 launch event in CA.However I don't expect it to be instantaneous. I hope it will but it'll probably be 1-2 days Edited by DaxovanHearts

I could have sworn somebody said that coverage WAS allowed in there. Oh well, still not a surprise. Hopefully they make the trailers they show public sooner than a day or two after posting them. I really hope all of my burning questions get answered these next few days. <3

Did you already forget last year's D23 even in Japan? The one where the new star keyblade was shown for the first time and Sora used Drive Forms? That was never made public.

...pretty sure that was the trailer he was talking about. And it was at the Anaheim 2.5 launch party.

I wish they would announce the estimated length of gameplay for the fragmentary passage. I know they said typical one world length but it is still good to hear the amount of hrs.

 

30 MINUTES BEFORE IT OPENSS!!!! Can't wait for more photos!!

It's great that Square and Disney allowed to take pictures, videos and whatnot but no one is doing a live stream... I hate my life...
