  1. Prior to the release of Kingdom Hearts III, Disney had announced that their Disney Ambassador Hotel in Japan would be promoting the game with a Kingdom Hearts Special Room for a limited time. Now, a brand new Kingdom Hearts Special Re Mind Room has been announced, along with a new menu! Check it out in the album below. The Kingdom Hearts Special ReMind room and the Special Room will open for reservations on November 14, 2019. You can book each room on the following days: ReMind Room: any day between January 10, 2020 to April 13, 2020; Special Room: any day between January 11, 2020 to April 14, 2020. The reservation price starts at ¥50,400 (approx. $460) per night. Both rooms are equipped with a double bed and two single beds and Kingdom Hearts decor throughout. While the original Special Room comes with a room key designed after the Kingdom Key, the Special Re Mind Room key is designed after Mickey's Kingdom Key D. Guests will also be provided with boxes of two additional keys to take home; these will be either the Kingdom Key or Kingdom Key D, depending on which room they have booked. Each room will also have three paper bags that guests can also come home; these feature an original Kingdom Hearts design reminiscent of the design on the Kingdom Hearts III Limited Edition PlayStation 4 Pro. There are also two new postcard designs; guests will receive three copies per room. The Kingdom Hearts themed menu will feature three new desserts: Special Cake Set - ¥2000 (approx. $18.40) This is a special set that comes with a coffee-flavored Crème brûlée, a hazelnut biscuit, and a jelly drink using seasalt-colored jelly and purple lavender syrup. A stained glass coaster comes with the drink. The offer time for this dessert set is from 3pm to 8pm. The number of offers per day is limited. This item is available only via reservation. Information on how to reserve this item will be available on November 21 at noon (implying that a link for reserving this item might appear on the website). Special Drink - ¥1300 (approx. $12) This is a special chocolate drink inspired by the Paopu fruit. It contains raspberry syrup, passion fruit syrup, and cocoa-based chocolate syrup. It will come with a coaster with an original design (more details on this coming soon). The offer time for this dessert set is from 3pm to 8pm. The number of original coaster up for grabs is limited. Special Parfait - ¥1200 (approx. $11) (More details on this coming soon.) Translations are courtesy of KH13 Staff @RyujiBlades. We will provide more updates as they come, so keep an eye on this space!

  3. Oogie Boogie's Bash is a Disneyland California Adventure special event with tons of experiences revolving around Halloween and the villains throughout Disney's movies. This year, it seems that characters from Kingdom Hearts will appear at the event! According to a pamphlet for the event, it lists that in the Grizzly Peak area, "Friends from Kingdom Hearts" will be hanging out for guests! In the past, a special Kingdom Hearts costumed Donald and Goofy were used for special events, so it's possible they will be the ones at the event, but it's not fully revealed on who it will be. You can check out the special pamphlet for the sold out event below! Special thanks to mrs.disnerd for the image! UPDATE (Sept 17th, 2019): Donald and Goofy were at Oggie Boogie's Bash dressed in their Kingdom Hearts outfits. A photo op was set up at Grizzly Peak and fans could take pictures with either Donald or Goofy. You can check out some of the pictures in the gallery below. A video of the event has been uploaded to WDW News Today's YouTube channel. You can watch it below. Special thanks to WDW News Today and Disneyland News Today for the pictures and video.

  7. As promised by the director Tetsuya Nomura himself, a new trailer for Kingdom Hearts III Re:Mind (now stylised as "Re Mind") has been released! Watch it below! Be sure to turn on Closed Captions on the YouTube player for English subtitles. Or, you can watch the original Japanese version below: UPDATE [Sep 9, 2019]: Thanks to our in-house translator Solis, we have noticed two noteworthy differences between the original Japanese dialogue and the localized translations. According to the localized translation, Aqua says: "There's only one thing I want, with all my heart." The original Japanese quote is: "The only thing I’ve wished for the past 10 years is..." In the localized version, the Master of Masters asks Xehanort, "What do you want for the world?" In the Japanese version, he says: “What do you want for the world after it has been covered in darkness?” The following press release was given alongside the new trailer: This new Re Mind trailer has revealed a variety of new content, from new boss battles to brand new cutscenes. During the battle against Xion and Saix, new dialogue is revealed with Kairi and Lea. Aqua's and Ventus's battle against Vanitas and Terra-Xehanort has gotten this treatment too. There also seems to be link attacks with the party members during their respective fights. For instance, Lea, Roxas and Xion had a unique attack together as well as Aqua and Ventus. A brief new snippet of the conversation between the Master of Masters and Young Xehanort is shown too. A new conversation between Sora and Chirithy is shown where they discuss the whereabouts of Kairi's heart. Sora talks to Namine in the Station of Awakening, urging her to leave, to "the world of ocean and sky". The trailer ends right before a clash takes place with Lingering Will and Terra-Xehanort. Two new fights were shown off. Both took place in similar looking arenas with Sora by himself. The first battle shown off was against what looked like Vanitas, and the second was against Xigbar (Luxu). Nomura also left this message. Translations are courtesy of KH13 Staff @Mio-chan. From previous trailers and information reveals, this is what we know about Kingdom Hearts III Re Mind: Roxas can be selected after advancing through additional scenarios, like those with Riku and Aqua The Oathkeeper Keyblade is being added with a unique Formchange in an update that will release simultaneously with Re Mind A secret episode will be added that includes a boss/bosses A Limit Cut episode will be added that also includes the Limit Cut boss/bosses New story content will be added, including a scenario named “Re Mind” containing a lot of cutscenes The number of new bosses in Re Mind (or, at least, the Limit Cut bosses) will be roughly as many as there were in Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix Additional scenarios are independent of and can be enjoyed after clearing the main story There will be an English language option available for Japanese version of the game It will be releasing in Winter Nomura wants to release Re Mind quickly, and not too close to Final Fantasy VII: Remake's release in March 2020. To refresh your memory (no pun intended), you can watch the first Kingdom Hearts III Re Mind trailer below. If you want to view screenshots for this new Re:Mind trailer, check them out below!

  9. The 13th Vessel has uncovered some interesting assets from Kingdom Hearts III while data mining it with other people. Below are some of our favorite picks! Assets from Scala ad Caelum included buildings and building parts, the coat of arms with the Master of Masters' Keyblade, a model of the "cable car", and a set of 15 books (numbered with an original numerals design) plus 5 others. A font texture from Daybreak Town was also found. It is interesting that Daybreak Town assets are included within Scala ad Caelum, as the castle from Daybreak Town is featured in the underwater sequence in Scala ad Caelum and the two worlds are somehow "connected" (as hinted by Kingdom Hearts series director Tetsuya Nomura). The posters that you can find around the world were also extracted, and some of them you can see in vivid detail. Written using an original alphabet, some of them also feature numbers that can be identified using the numeral system shown in the book set mentioned above. Amongst these posters, there is one featuring a black cat with a red ribbon, some regarding musical performances, and some featuring products such as shoes, flowers, restaurant dishes, maintenance tools, cow milk, a blueberry pie, a sewing machine, and a chair. It is interesting, to say the least! The 13th vessel has commented that while the Chess Room assets are also there, the textures of the models that belong to that room look "weird", that there is some type of door and a lot of interesting little models. He will attempt to enter the room once he acquires more data. The Verum Rex posters from Toy Box, along with the actual front and back of the game packaging, was also extracted. A deluxe edition of the game and a strategy guide are also available. "That's the story of the King of Truth", it says on the back, probably referring to Yozora, the game's main character. Can you read the rest of the text? Assets from The Mysterious Tower include the interior, a whiteboard with scribbles, the pages of a book, and content used in the maps that are inside the game. The 13th Vessel has also provided us with some assets from Disney Castle as it appears in Kingdom Hearts III (when Chip and Dale call Sora on the Gummiphone). Other locations such as Radiant Garden, Remy's restaurant, and Namine's room were also explored, and a model of apprentice Xehanort found. You can find the complete album of images below! It is worth noting that the data to be data mined is not complete and that more assets could soon be uncovered. For updates on The 13th Vessel's data mining projects, you can follow him on Twitter or visit his YouTube channel, where he also posts videos exploring the Kingdom Hearts games out-of-bounds. UPDATE [September 15, 2019] Some more KH3 assets have been datamined thanks to the efforts of The 13th Vessel, SpookyMajora and daemon1 from XeNTaX. First, we have the infamous chess room. It is quite surreal to see that room in such detail. Next, it seems that Nomura signed Baymax's update chip, judging from these zoom-ins. Apparently all of the 0.2 customization models are in the game which isn't too surprising considering that 0.2 was initially meant to be a prologue to KH3. So they're most likely just leftover assets. The 13th Vessel showed off these four. The skyboxes of several of the worlds were found, and they're truly beautiful. An odd texture from Scala ad Caelum labelled to a 'speaker' in KH3's game files has been datamined too. Lastly, we have a strange photo that was found in KH3's game files. Many are saying that it is a photo from inside one of Square Enix's business buildings. We also have a blurry shot of Daybreak Town with a strange blue artifact. According to Twitter user Keytotruth, who is another individual helping out with efforts such as these, it seems to be an HDR image used for testing image based lighting. Either way, it's quite an interesting find! Speaking of Keytotruth, he has shown off a couple of the Stations of Awakening in closer detail. First of which being the Station containing the Foreteller masks, and Sora's Station. The sheer amount of effort these individuals have gone through to comb KH3's files is commendable and I applaud them for it. Which asset do you find the most intriguing? For further updates on KH3's assets, be sure to follow Keytotruth, and The 13th Vessel. The 13th Vessel also posts out-of-bounds exploration videos of KH3's various worlds which I'm sure would compel most of you to check them out! [UPDATE [September 23, 2019] Even more assets have been found thanks to 13th Vessel. There are quite a variety of interesting assets to comb through here. One of the most intriguing ones is this magic circle which is either used during Donald's Zettflare, or during the final fight in Scala ad Caelum. This Monsters, Inc. keycard is also interesting since there is a fair amount of detail on it, such as the smudged print all over it, alongside the text. This seems like a map of sorts, so it could have possibly been used in the Port Royal world. This seems to either be a template, or earlier build of the Gummiphone. Either way, seeing that phone icon there is rather odd. One of the last truly enticing assets to me are these cards which are used during the Luxord fight. Seeing them in more detail is quite exciting. There were also other assets found which you can check out by visiting the "KH3 Ingame Assets" gallery album, here! Once again, thanks to 13th Vessel for these finds. You can follow him on twitter here. Which of these newly found assets do you find the most intriguing?
