Square Enix have announced that a special board will be put up in Shinjuku Station to commemorate Kingdom Hearts III's release in Japan on January 25th 2019. The board will be available between June 25th to July 1st.
The board shows several shots from Kingdom Hearts III's cutscenes, showing off characters like Elsa and Ralph. There will also be five boxes that contain leaflets based on the "Stories Connecting To III" summary movies that were released earlier this month. You can check out what it will look like in the gallery below.
Each leaflet has its own art and story and there are 15 leaflets to collect in all. The leaflets are said to be in limited quality. At several points in the day (10:00, 14:00, 17:00 and 20:00) JST residents can collect one leaflet from each book for themselves.
A special Twitter campaign will also be happening that gives people the chance to win 5 notebooks based on the storybooks themselves. All entrants have to do is share what they thought of the recap videos by July 8th to be in for a chance to win.
Square Enix Japan tweeted about the special promo saying:
"From 6/25, Stories Connecting to KH3 special boards will be displayed at Shinjuku Station Metro Promenade! We are also preparing a unique experience - don't miss out!"
Information from the official site says this about the leaflets:
"5 Episodes of the Kingdom Hearts series appeared as pictures books, now they are exhibited as 5 physical boxes! You can pull out the pages from the pictures books, borrow them and come back another day. Messages that link to KHIII can only be read in the leaflets.
For Square Enix members (free), the leaflets are planned to be tradable at a later date by using points."
Thank you to goldpanner and KH13 Staff Mio-chan for translations.
