We’d like to ask if you all could take a little bit of time out of your day to help us fill out the below survey.
It will take approximately 10-15 minutes and the more truthful your answers are helps shape the future of KINGDOM HEARTS.
The survey will be open until 3/14/2014 at 11:59pm PST.
Thanks go to kingdomlanelover for sharing the survey on KH13, and to Flaming Lea for copying us the whole status. This is an official survey, so we recommend that everyone has a honest attempt at it, as your answers could influence Square Enix and effect the future of the KINGDOM HEARTS series.

Sony Computer Entertainment Japan have announced that a PlayStation 4 launch event will be held on February 21, 2014, starting at 10:30PM JST. KINGDOM HEARTS III producer Shinji Hashimoto has been annouced as a guest creator for the event, which will be live streamed on Ustream and Nico Nico. It is currently unknown if Hashimoto will reveal any new KINGDOM HEARTS III information, but we will keep you updated with more information as it appears.
Update 2: Shinji Hashimoto appeared on stage at the event and asked fans to "Please wait a little longer." concerning KINGDOM HEARTS III.
Update: Sony have uploaded the videos to be shown at the event to their PlayStation Japan YouTube channel, and unfortunately, the video containing KINGDOM HEARTS III is old footage from the E3 2013 announcement trailer. This can be seen below.
There is still a chance that Hashimoto could reveal some small new information while on stage, so stay tuned and we will keep you updated-- no guarantee, though!
