  3. It's been awhile since I was here but decided to post it here anyway to give a excuse to visit this site. Anyway... This is a showcase of every unused keyblade in Dream Drop Distance. If I'm aware, almost every unused keyblade except for one never had any footage online to view. So I decided to do that along posting the stuff as well onto TCRF. The only real problem is the keyblade I talk at the end of the video, which I'm having trouble to bring up. Otherwise, have fun knowing what keyblades that could have been in the game. The footage as well is from the 3DS version, which I recorded via Snickerstream via a CFW N3DS.
  4. The darkness comes in many shapes and forms, which antagonistic creature in the Kingdom Hearts series is your favorite?
  5. In Kingdom Hearts 3, we see Marluxia putting Sora into a deep sleep. It's safe to assume that Marluxia has a special power over sleep. In DDD, the organization hijacked the Realm of Dreams to capture and corrupt Sora. Due to sleep being Marluxia's power, and all the years he spent in the realm of dreams, (probably where he got the power anyways) I think Marluxia was the one who hijacked it. This would be the reason Xehanort kept Marluxia in the organization, even after his betrayal. Until now I thought that was odd, he literally planned to kill xemnas and take over organization 13. If it wasn't for this, his inclusion wouldn't make sense.

  8. Let me just preface this by saying that this is not me complaining about people not liking Kingdom Hearts 3D. Everyone is different, and everyone views things differently. Please don't take this topic as a trap or as me saying "the game is amazing! You guys are wrong!" I am not going to attack you or argue with you; I just want your opinion. This topic is purely for curiosity's sake. Kingdom Hearts 3D is one of my favourite Kingdom Hearts games. Like literally tied for first place with Birth by Sleep. No joke. Ever since I first played it it has been one of my two favourite entries in the series. I love the story, I LOVE the combat (particularly the flowmotion) and I love the flexibility of the Dream Eater party system. I always thought that this was a common opinion, that the majority of people loved the game as much as I did. It was only over the past couple of months that I noticed a lot of people citing 3D as one of the series' worst entries, some even calling it garbage. Needless to say, I was quite taken aback when I saw these responses, and it has since begged the question: Why do people hate this entry so much? If you don't like Kingdom Hearts 3D, please tell me why here. I'm interested to hear your thoughts on where this game went wrong. Again, this is not me criticizing or arguing. I just want to be able to see the big picture. Thanks guys, and may our hearts be our guiding keys.

  11. You might remember that back in the Ultimania for Dream Drop Distance, Masashi Nakamichi the Sub-Lead Programmer for the game, revealed a fun secret about how one of the cutscenes was made. This is what he said back in 2012: Thanks to long time Kingdom Hearts fan and dataminer, 13th Vessel, we can now see what Nakamichi was talking about! Check it out the video below. (Make sure you watch till the very end!) In order to have the first person angle for Xehanort within the cutscene, the developers had to edit his body proportions and move the camera around, resulting in him having a tiny head! Similar tricks were previously found in Kingdom Hearts II by Boundary Break, revealing scenes where models were messed around with to achieve certain angles in cutscenes. 13th Vessel has contribute to a number of discoveries within the code in the Kingdom Hearts games, including the deleted world of Monsters, Inc. in Kingdom Hearts II and assets from Kingdom Hearts 2.8. Check out his YouTube channel for more interesting discoveries (and clips of him playing around the worlds on Kingdom Hearts games!) What hidden camera tricks have you seen in Kingdom Hearts? Let us know in the comments below!

  13. Hey guys. So I'm at work right now (don't judge me; it's insanely dead and I'm suuuuuuper bored) and I was just browsing on the Kingdom Hearts wiki to pass the time when I learned something interesting. Apparently both Ava and Luxu from KHUX both have names derived from the latin words for two of the seven deadly sins (greed and lust, respectively). This intrigued me, and after I did some digging I learned that all of the Master of Master's apprentices have names like this: Invi is envy, Aced is sloth, Ira is wrath, and Gula is gluttony. Even more interesting is that apparently each foreteller's union has an animal that is associated with each sin (with the exception of Gula for some reason). This blew my mind, and I immediately suspected that the Master of Masters' true name must be derived from the latin word for pride, because that is the only sin missing here. This got me thinking: do Sora and his friends mirror this trope? Maybe each guardian of light will represent a different deadly sin like the foretellers. What do you guys think? Have you noticed any other symbolism in the series? Do you think this will be expanded upon in Kingdom Hearts III, or do you think it's just kind of a cool connection?

    [This may contains spoilers since it is an important title that leads to KH3. Please read at your own risk] [I also want you all to know that this is my third time playing this game. I will explain in detail later in this review, but do take my opinions with a grain of salt since I had a lesser experience with the entirety of the title itself.] - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Continuing our story from ReCoded, we follow Sora and Riku in this next journey. With the supposed upcoming return of Master Xehanort, they must now take upon the big test, The Mark of Mastery, to prove themselves to become true masters in order to have the proper strength to fight against Xehanort's plans. They are put into the realm of dreams to awaken the sleeping worlds that reside. With the aid of Dream Eaters, you fight against their dark counterparts known as Nightmares in hopes to wake up the sleeping worlds and pass the test to become true masters. Along the way, they encounter a mysterious young man throughout their test. It is up to Sora and Riku to accomplish the test while figuring out the reason for seeing the young man following them. - - - - - - This is game interesting. If anything, it is probably the most polarizing game in the series. You play as both Sora and Riku simultaneously. Switching them requires somethings via "dropping". This is considered an annoying mechanic simply because, for example, if you were in a boss fight and the drop gauge depletes in the middle of it, you switch to another character but you come back and have to start over again (rinse and repeat). However, for my case, I always use a certain item to keep from this predicament. So, I personally had no problem at all with the dropping myself (we fans recommend you use the item). The gameplay is supported by a new kind of game mechanic called Flowmotion. It allows you to jump into higher places and allows you to travel faster. It is also an advantage in combat. I mean, this advantage is so broken it limits the other commands you can use throughout the game. It was fine for me, but to many it takes the fun out because of how repetitive it is. This time around, you have Dream Eaters as your allies in this title (in replacement of Donald and Goofy). They are a bit more helpful in terms of combat as well as linking to certain abilities. My problem with the links is that I have to find more items to create a dream eater that would give me the important abilities I need. That is called grinding my friends. I do not mind some grinding but this kind of grinding I felt like I need to get used to. The story is by far an incredibly difficult plot to explain. This title gave many fans a lot of intense face palms because of one major element that pretty much ruined the story overall. I will not say it here for the sake of avoiding spoilers. Let's just say it really connects everything because of this element? Alright, here comes my case in the title in general. This is my third time playing the game, so I can't say my full thoughts on the game altogether. I still need to get used to this game eventually. When I played this the second time for the heck of it I guess, I felt kinda meh on it. Which I find odd because I did have fun when I played it the very first time. My feelings for it are a bit complicated. On one hand, there is the ability mechanic via dream eaters that I am not a fan of (plus the plot is difficult to explain verbally). On the other hand, I think it had some decent character moments (at least for me, from a particular character. As for music....it's not as memorable as past titles. However, there are a 2-3 tunes that are pretty much the best of the bunch in my opinion: (). The rest is kinda lost for me and not exactly worth downloading. The worlds are even a tad bit meh. I don't think I have a particular favorite Disney world in this title. <strike> The closest I'll get to a favorite in terms of Disney Worlds is Symphony of Sorcery because it is by far one of the most unique worlds in the series.</strike>. At least they are somewhat newer worlds and not reusing a chunk of worlds we visited in KH1. It's just not exciting Here is where speak my thoughts on the story, including the element that made this title polarizing. So, once again, heads up on the spoilers. [SPOILERS AHEAD] One of the biggest issues it had was their introduction to Time Travel. I actually do not mind time travel. The issue for most people was that this is a sample of Nomura's habit in this series. He makes up concepts as the series goes along. What we thought was yellow and blue to green paint, Nomura just added an entirely new color out of nowhere. On top of that, how to explain time travel is a bit difficult to explain. I mentally get it, but I cannot verbally say it without sounded like I am going to burst your brain to goo. I also want to point out something that may or may not be an unpopular opinion. In case you don't know, I am a fan of Transformers. I have watched the live action films since it's first release. I have watched it grow careless and it loses potential every single time. I am saying this because it is the opposite of what Kingdom Hearts was doing. While they both are made up as they go along, Kingdom Hearts at least had more passion and care with the characters and even the story added with lore. We care so much for this otherwise we wouldn't be looking forward to KH3. That's why I feel like this title is tolerable in terms of them adding time travel. Yes, it's hard to explain but I feel like I understand it more than the somewhat empty series that is the Transformers live action films. Moving on, one of the highlights of this title is Riku. Once again, I had to say that his development is one of my favorites in this series. Seeing him now from back in KH1 is really cool to see. On top of that, back in the day, I was young and thought Riku was kinda terrible. In KH2 (back in the day), I just didn't understand his motives. But growing up now, I finally understand him. That, and is one of the reasons why the concept of how you look at both light and darkness is so good (which is something Kingdom Hearts impresses me on with it's in-depth perspective). Plus, I actually enjoy his gameplay a bit more than Sora (in this title). One of the important scenes involve the final score on their exam. Turns out, Riku managed to pass and became a Keybalde master. This scene was a bit controversial last I remembered. Not just because Riku passed in general. But the fact that Sora failed the test. To many Sora fans, it was a let down because they felt that Sora deserved a higher reward for saving all the worlds for the past two years [in game]. I want to throw in and say while I understand why people felt this way. However, between Sora and the audience, Sora handled it very well. Instead of feeling sad for himself, he cheered for Riku. This moment shows what kind of person Sora is (if anyone hasn't figured out at this point). I'm sure he was saddened, but he was able to make up for in the end. With that in mind.mi was happy for Riku. To see him come this far is a sight to behold. As previous mentioned, I didn't care about Riku at first. But going through this series, he has earned my respect for him.m. Speaking of Sora, his character throughout this title is interesting too. This title has some decent moments however. One of my favorites, of course, involves Lea (aka Axel). Anytime I see him on screen, I just feel blessed. I think out of his moments in this title, my absolute favorite is him saving Mickey and co from Maleficent and Pete. That moment was so great it deserved a mic drop. Then we also have the most shocking from him was receiving his very own Keyblade. I am looking forward to see more of this in KH3...well, Lea in general really LOL [END SPOILERS] That being said, this is a fine title. It is not a true favorite for me yet, but I do enjoy the gameplay and even the story, or least the character moments. I would not consider this the worst title for me, but it is polarizing at best. I'd say just try it out yourself and you can decide whether or not you like it. [ARTIST NOTES] This began the difficulty of ideas for the upcoming posters, this title included. This one is a bit easier to decide because it is more or less inspired by the cover art of DDD. However, I added something unique to this in a way. The setting of the sky is like 2 sides of one coin. I'll let you figure that out. I originally was going to give them their keyblades, but I felt it would create a tangent for this size, especially near the title placement (to which that was kind of a pain honestly, but still worked out LOL). If you want this for a wallpaper, you choose one side or the other ^^ --- Not very long till this project is done and Kingdom Hearts 3 being right on our door step. I got the X timeline to cover. They will be in 3 segments: Back Cover (which is simply the movie), Unchained being the gameplay of the mobile game, and Union Cross which is the story of the mobile game. After all that, will be the last game being 0.2 Fragmentary Passage. They will all be posted in January weekly till release in Japan. Please look forward to these last upcoming posters.

  17. Welcome Kingdom Hearts fans, old and new, to the new version of KH13 on the occasion of our 10th anniversary! We are delighted to celebrate a decade of being a hub for the Kingdom Hearts community! Just in time for KH13’s 10th anniversary, we have rolled out the newest update of the website. Version 4 is now more functional and responsive to reflect the needs of our users. The previous version was first released in 2011, and although we had grown to love it, the site had to be rebuilt from the ground up to modernise it and allow us to easily iterate and add new content and features. Look forward to more updates in the future! In the meanwhile, please enjoy the new responsive streamlined design, fully functional mobile site, improved post editor and media submission tools, refreshed video archive and gallery, as well as many other new features scattered around the site. In the past, KH13.com has gone through 4 major redesigns. You can see snapshots of the older versions below and compare it to the current one. Feel old yet? A brief history of KH13 In October 9, 2008, the domain for KH13 was registered; at the time, KH1.com through KH12.com were taken, resulting in the befitting and auspicious claim on the domain “KH13.com”. In October 17, 2008 (October 18 in the webmasters' home country, Australia), the first article was published and KH13 was shared with the world for the very first time, and officially launched! While it all started as a fun project between webmaster DChiuch and Co-Webmaster Aaron, it soon became the full-fledged website for Kingdom Hearts news, media, and discussion that it is today. At the time it was conceived, high quality videos and media were hard to come by, so KH13 initially established itself by providing high quality trailer and cutscene downloads. Now, KH13 is one of the best and well-known Kingdom Hearts fansites for news and media. Within 3 years, KH13 became more well known, paving its future in becoming one of the best and most popular Kingdom Hearts fansites for news and media. In 2011, we started sending representatives to E3 as part of the press. Our first rep was SQEX☆GAL, followed by many others such as Oishii, the Kingdom Hearts community veteran Churro, KH13 PR rep (and former News Team Leader) Toominator and Kingdom Hearts χ Team and News Team member Raxaimus. In the past years, we have established our press presence in many gaming events around the world. Most recently, Toominator and Raxaimus have represented us at the exclusive Kingdom Hearts III Premiere invitational event that took place last May in Santa Monica, California. One important feature that has been prominent throughout KH13 is our gallery and video archives. Former KH13 Archives Team Leader and News Team member Sora96 has brought the video archives and gallery to what it is today, featuring over 29,000 images and hundreds of videos from the Kingdom Hearts series. Thanks also goes to Everglow, our former partner, for recording thousands of cutscenes and playthrough videos for KH13's archives. Our wide selection of videos and images has brought in many visitors for KH13. KH13 today At the present time, KH13 is one of the most essential news outlets on all things Kingdom Hearts, part and parcel of the Kingdom Hearts community. Our news, archives, KHχ and social media team are recognized for their effortful work in delivering the latest information and media to Kingdom Hearts fans and bringing them together to share ideas and resources that embellish the fandom and bring “hype” to the community. The KH13.com community has also been growing on social media. Our Twitter (@KH13.com) has almost 34k followers. Our Facebook page (KH13.com, for Kingdom Hearts) has hit the 25k likes mark. We have a PlayStation community page, and a brand new Discord server! You can follow us on Youtube and Twitch as well. We held many mini #KH13MeetUp’s at various events around North America and UK. Check out the hashtag on Twitter and don’t forget to meet us on the next one! We also released a very entertaining 2017 Re:Cap trailer for Kingdom Hearts news in 2017! A 2018 version is in the works… Reporting Kingdom Hearts news in the past year KH13’s 10th anniversary year has brought forth many exciting developments in Kingdom Hearts! But undoubtedly, the biggest piece of news is that of Kingdom Hearts III’s release date reveal at the Los Angeles Kingdom Hearts Orchestra (Encore) concert. Kingdom Hearts III is coming January 25, 2019 in Japan, and January 29, 2019 to the rest of the world. Recently, Kingdom Hearts III’s box art has also been revealed and has already been branded (anecdotally speaking) as one of the best video games cover! Take a look at it below. Monsters, Inc., Frozen, and Pirates of the Carribean - At World’s End were revealed to have worlds in Kingdom Hearts III! Wreck-It Ralph and Ratatouille will also appear as summon and mini-game respectively. A whopping 9 trailers were revealed in the past year, and along with extra gameplay footage, fans had a lot of information to be excited about, gameplay elements to look forward to, theories to make, and returning characters to welcome back (and at times cry about)! Monsters, Inc. trailer Making of Kingdom Hearts (not released to public) Classic Kingdom trailer Kingdom Hearts Orchetra trailer (not released to public) Frozen trailer Square Enix E3 Showcase 2018 trailer Pirates of the Caribbean trailer “Don’t Think Twice” trailer Extended Aqua cutscene + gameplay (TGS 2018) Toy Box, The Carribean, Arendelle, Olympus, San Fransokyo, Monstropolis, Gummi Ship and Ratatouille (Twilight Town) gameplay (TGS 2018) Toy Box Premiere Exclusive Boss Fight (TGS 2018) Arendelle Trinity Sled Full Sequence (TGS 2018) Big Hero 6 trailer (short) Big Hero 6 Extended trailer A never before seen character appearance is expected to show up in the next trailer... Utada Hikaru’s “Chikai” and “Don’t Think Twice” were revealed as the Japanese and English theme songs for Kingdom Hearts III. (The full version of “Chikai” was released within Utada Hikaru’s new album, Hatsukoi.) “Face My Fears”, a collaboration between Utada and Skrillex, was later revealed to be the opening theme to Kingdom Hearts III. Kingdom Hearts III Deluxe Edition and Deluxe Edition + Bring Arts went on pre-order this year, and a Limited Edition Kingdom Hearts III PlayStation 4 Pro was announced at E3 2018. A Limited Edition Kingdom Hearts III PlayStation 4 Slim was also shown off at TGS 2018. While no new games will be joining the main story before Kingdom Hearts III (Square, please), a free Kingdom Hearts VR Experience was announced for PlayStation VR! Kingdom Hearts’ 15th anniversary was celebrated towards the end of last year. Square Enix Cafe even held an anniversary campaign, where Sora’s birthday was revealed to be March 28, 2002. The Dandelion Meeting for Kingdom Hearts Union x[Cross] then took place in April in Anaheim, California! That was our first experience of trying out Kingdom Hearts III’s LCD-style mini-games, which can now be playing in the mobile game itself! (And while we’re on the topic of firsts…) KH13 staff were amongst the first to get a taste of playing Kingdom Hearts III at its Premiere in Santa Monica, California! Extended demos of Toy Box and Olympus were available at the event; shorter versions of the demo made rounds around the world in various events. (At one of these events, a new area of Olympus within the demo was also accidentally leaked!) Kingdom Hearts fans also contributed greatly to reveals this year. Interesting assets from Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth by Sleep -A fragmentary passage- were discovered. Deleted Monsters, Inc. assets were also found, after all this time, in Kingdom Hearts II! Off-camera secrets of KH2 were also revealed in the Boundary Break series. Furthermore, Everglow started his Kingdom Hearts Timeline series to piece the whole story together in chronological order to prep all fans for the final chapter of the Xehanort saga! This was definitely the year for Kingdom Hearts merch. Square Enix came forth with many wonderful Bring Arts, including Kingdom Hearts III Sora, Riku, and Kairi. Disney even released Kingdom Hearts Tsum Tsums in Japan! Numerous companies like Hot Topic, Spencer’s, Funko, Bandai, Good Smile Company, and FiGPiN licensed a variety of interesting products, including a Keyblade Proplica, Sora and Riku Nendoroids, and KH3 Funko Pops. Kingdom Hearts II: The Novel, Vol. 2, was released in the West, with the 358/2 Days novel releasing next month. Still no word of Kingdom Hearts at Disney Parks (although Shinji Hashimoto is trying to work it out), but Donald Duck and Goofy in their Kingdom Hearts costumes reappeared, at Disneyland, after a long time! In regards to the past and future of Kingdom Hearts: The old storyboards from Kingdom Hearts’s cancelled animated series by Seth Kearsley were also revealed and later auctioned to fans; Walt Disney made a historic deal to acquire 21st Century Fox, meaning even more IPs could possibly join the series; Nomura stated that Kingdom Hearts Union x[Cross]’s story would continue even after Kingdom Hearts III. In conclusion... As we enter our 11th year, we would like to thank our current leaders of our various teams, which includes Aquaberry, WakelessDream, faemarch, Wan_Pisu, and HaakonHawk; our vice leaders Leamax, Yoshirai, Ventus_, AndrewHankinson, and Justin; staff manager HarLea Quinn, and, of course, webmaster DChiuch.

We hope to be around for many more, and to continue to provide the latest Kingdom Hearts news and media!
  18. Welcome Kingdom Hearts fans, old and new, to the new version of KH13 on the occasion of our 10th anniversary! We are delighted to celebrate a decade of being a hub for the Kingdom Hearts community! Just in time for KH13’s 10th anniversary, we have rolled out the newest update of the website. Version 4 is now more functional and responsive to reflect the needs of our users. The previous version was first released in 2011, and although we had grown to love it, the site had to be rebuilt from the ground up to modernise it and allow us to easily iterate and add new content and features. Look forward to more updates in the future! In the meanwhile, please enjoy the new responsive streamlined design, fully functional mobile site, improved post editor and media submission tools, refreshed video archive and gallery, as well as many other new features scattered around the site. In the past, KH13.com has gone through 4 major redesigns. You can see snapshots of the older versions below and compare it to the current one. Feel old yet? A brief history of KH13 In October 9, 2008, the domain for KH13 was registered; at the time, KH1.com through KH12.com were taken, resulting in the befitting and auspicious claim on the domain “KH13.com”. In October 17, 2008 (October 18 in the webmasters' home country, Australia), the first article was published and KH13 was shared with the world for the very first time, and officially launched! While it all started as a fun project between webmaster DChiuch and Co-Webmaster Aaron, it soon became the full-fledged website for Kingdom Hearts news, media, and discussion that it is today. At the time it was conceived, high quality videos and media were hard to come by, so KH13 initially established itself by providing high quality trailer and cutscene downloads. Now, KH13 is one of the best and well-known Kingdom Hearts fansites for news and media. Within 3 years, KH13 became more well known, paving its future in becoming one of the best and most popular Kingdom Hearts fansites for news and media. In 2011, we started sending representatives to E3 as part of the press. Our first rep was SQEX☆GAL, followed by many others such as Oishii, the Kingdom Hearts community veteran Churro, KH13 PR rep (and former News Team Leader) Toominator and Kingdom Hearts χ Team and News Team member Raxaimus. In the past years, we have established our press presence in many gaming events around the world. Most recently, Toominator and Raxaimus have represented us at the exclusive Kingdom Hearts III Premiere invitational event that took place last May in Santa Monica, California. One important feature that has been prominent throughout KH13 is our gallery and video archives. Former KH13 Archives Team Leader and News Team member Sora96 has brought the video archives and gallery to what it is today, featuring over 29,000 images and hundreds of videos from the Kingdom Hearts series. Thanks also goes to Everglow, our former partner, for recording thousands of cutscenes and playthrough videos for KH13's archives. Our wide selection of videos and images has brought in many visitors for KH13. KH13 today At the present time, KH13 is one of the most essential news outlets on all things Kingdom Hearts, part and parcel of the Kingdom Hearts community. Our news, archives, KHχ and social media team are recognized for their effortful work in delivering the latest information and media to Kingdom Hearts fans and bringing them together to share ideas and resources that embellish the fandom and bring “hype” to the community. The KH13.com community has also been growing on social media. Our Twitter (@KH13.com) has almost 34k followers. Our Facebook page (KH13.com, for Kingdom Hearts) has hit the 25k likes mark. We have a PlayStation community page, and a brand new Discord server! You can follow us on Youtube and Twitch as well. We held many mini #KH13MeetUp’s at various events around North America and UK. Check out the hashtag on Twitter and don’t forget to meet us on the next one! We also released a very entertaining 2017 Re:Cap trailer for Kingdom Hearts news in 2017! A 2018 version is in the works… Reporting Kingdom Hearts news in the past year KH13’s 10th anniversary year has brought forth many exciting developments in Kingdom Hearts! But undoubtedly, the biggest piece of news is that of Kingdom Hearts III’s release date reveal at the Los Angeles Kingdom Hearts Orchestra (Encore) concert. Kingdom Hearts III is coming January 25, 2019 in Japan, and January 29, 2019 to the rest of the world. Recently, Kingdom Hearts III’s box art has also been revealed and has already been branded (anecdotally speaking) as one of the best video games cover! Take a look at it below. Monsters, Inc., Frozen, and Pirates of the Carribean - At World’s End were revealed to have worlds in Kingdom Hearts III! Wreck-It Ralph and Ratatouille will also appear as summon and mini-game respectively. A whopping 9 trailers were revealed in the past year, and along with extra gameplay footage, fans had a lot of information to be excited about, gameplay elements to look forward to, theories to make, and returning characters to welcome back (and at times cry about)! Monsters, Inc. trailer Making of Kingdom Hearts (not released to public) Classic Kingdom trailer Kingdom Hearts Orchetra trailer (not released to public) Frozen trailer Square Enix E3 Showcase 2018 trailer Pirates of the Caribbean trailer “Don’t Think Twice” trailer Extended Aqua cutscene + gameplay (TGS 2018) Toy Box, The Carribean, Arendelle, Olympus, San Fransokyo, Monstropolis, Gummi Ship and Ratatouille (Twilight Town) gameplay (TGS 2018) Toy Box Premiere Exclusive Boss Fight (TGS 2018) Arendelle Trinity Sled Full Sequence (TGS 2018) Big Hero 6 trailer (short) Big Hero 6 Extended trailer A never before seen character appearance is expected to show up in the next trailer... Utada Hikaru’s “Chikai” and “Don’t Think Twice” were revealed as the Japanese and English theme songs for Kingdom Hearts III. (The full version of “Chikai” was released within Utada Hikaru’s new album, Hatsukoi.) “Face My Fears”, a collaboration between Utada and Skrillex, was later revealed to be the opening theme to Kingdom Hearts III. Kingdom Hearts III Deluxe Edition and Deluxe Edition + Bring Arts went on pre-order this year, and a Limited Edition Kingdom Hearts III PlayStation 4 Pro was announced at E3 2018. A Limited Edition Kingdom Hearts III PlayStation 4 Slim was also shown off at TGS 2018. While no new games will be joining the main story before Kingdom Hearts III (Square, please), a free Kingdom Hearts VR Experience was announced for PlayStation VR! Kingdom Hearts’ 15th anniversary was celebrated towards the end of last year. Square Enix Cafe even held an anniversary campaign, where Sora’s birthday was revealed to be March 28, 2002. The Dandelion Meeting for Kingdom Hearts Union x[Cross] then took place in April in Anaheim, California! That was our first experience of trying out Kingdom Hearts III’s LCD-style mini-games, which can now be playing in the mobile game itself! (And while we’re on the topic of firsts…) KH13 staff were amongst the first to get a taste of playing Kingdom Hearts III at its Premiere in Santa Monica, California! Extended demos of Toy Box and Olympus were available at the event; shorter versions of the demo made rounds around the world in various events. (At one of these events, a new area of Olympus within the demo was also accidentally leaked!) Kingdom Hearts fans also contributed greatly to reveals this year. Interesting assets from Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth by Sleep -A fragmentary passage- were discovered. Deleted Monsters, Inc. assets were also found, after all this time, in Kingdom Hearts II! Off-camera secrets of KH2 were also revealed in the Boundary Break series. Furthermore, Everglow started his Kingdom Hearts Timeline series to piece the whole story together in chronological order to prep all fans for the final chapter of the Xehanort saga! This was definitely the year for Kingdom Hearts merch. Square Enix came forth with many wonderful Bring Arts, including Kingdom Hearts III Sora, Riku, and Kairi. Disney even released Kingdom Hearts Tsum Tsums in Japan! Numerous companies like Hot Topic, Spencer’s, Funko, Bandai, Good Smile Company, and FiGPiN licensed a variety of interesting products, including a Keyblade Proplica, Sora and Riku Nendoroids, and KH3 Funko Pops.

  21. Okay Kingdom Hearts fans I have came across this post and this is a mind boggling question indeed. Heres the post, I just got done playing 0.2 and one thing that really stood out to me was that Mickey knew Riku and Sora’s names and that Riku knew he had to help close the door to Kingdom Hearts. If I remember correctly In KH1 there was no mention of Mickey knowing of Riku and Sora, except for the mention of the “key” but still there was never a specific name and I don’t really remember the specifics on why Riku knew he had to help with the door to darkness. So my question is how does Mickey know their names in 0.2 and how does Riku know to close the DTD (Birth By Sleep 0.2 and KH1 timeline) He wants to try and find out how did Mickey knew about Sora and Riku have been helping him the whole time. Scene takes place when Aqua and Mickey entered a broken Destiny Islands and when Mickey asked "what were the boys names?"Aqua mentioned Sora and Riku, Then Mickey knew that Sora and Riku have been helping him. Was it to just advance the plot or would have been Yensid updating him telling him what to do or something else missing? I know KH1 was the first game and hasnt been thought of these. So lets try to brainstorm about it. Thanks
  22. "...13 years have passed since the ending of the 2nd Keyblade War...the 7 Guardians of Light, led by Sora had at last vanquished the 13 Seekers of Darkness, led by Xehanort and had restored true equilibrium by locking away the true Kingdom Hearts upon destroying the true Chi-Blade, thus ensuring that neither both Light nor Darkness can reign supreme over one of the other side... However...there will always be those seeking to obtain Kingdom Hearts for themselves and thus, in order to prevent the reconstruction of the Chi-Blade once more, Sora and those that had survived the events of the Keyblade War, himself, Riku, Kairi, King Mickey, Donald, Goofy, Roxas, Lea, Xion, Namine, Ventus, Terra and Aqua had all agreed to create a new "Keyblade Academy" to train future wielders of the Keyblade, should forces of either the Dark or even Light itself attempt to recreate the Chi-Blade for whatever reasons they have in mind...the Keyblade Academy is built in the capital of Light, Radiant Garden, where here, everyone who is allied with Sora, the hero of the last great Keyblade War can keep watch over who is worthy to wield the Keyblade and fight in its name to protect the balance of all things, living and/or otherwise...that which is known...as Kingdom Hearts...the Heart, of all Worlds and people... 13 years have passed...a new generation has taken up the Keyblade and are now prepared to embark on a new adventure the likes of which no one has ever seen before, battling against evildoers that would threaten peace loving citizens, join us, as we see these all brand new Keyblade heroes in action!" Rules: No Godmodding. No Romance above age 12. No Swearing above age 15. The story is set after the events of Kingdom Hearts III, please stay true to the Kingdom Hearts mythology, as much, as possible. Please use proper grammar.
