    I think the reason I don't get any call backs from jobs is because I'm a mentally ill person and they don't hire based on that.

Amongst the Kingdom Hearts III information revealed at the Kingdom Hearts 15th Anniversary Commemorative Campaign Preview Night held at Square Enix Café Osaka on October 13th, 2017, there was also some discussion pertaining the worlds in the upcoming title and future reveals. Kingdom Hearts III development leads, such as series director Tetsuya Nomura and lead character modeler Mr. Yamasaki, answered related questions.

It was confirmed that a new playable character other than Sora will be present in Kingdom Hearts III. They said:

Such a world will come out [where this is possible]... But it is something we cannot tell you right now.


This follows a previous statement where Nomura hinted at the possibility of a second playable character.

When asked about the world selection criteria in Kingdom Hearts III, the staff in attendance answered:

Although we put emphasis on the play-element of worlds, sometimes we like for the new worlds to be a surprise.


When asked if they meet with Disney representatives abroad to discuss world selection, Yamasaki replied that he does so on a regular basis to share his point of view with the world, and that "each leader goes [abroad] as a delegate."

Lastly, the staff stated that while D23 Expo has been confirmed in the past to present new information on Kingdom Hearts III, it is undecided whether this will be the case for the event's upcoming 2018 installation.

Translations have been provided by KH13 translators Mio-chan and Lady Aleister.

Series director Tetsuya Nomura revealed some background information on Kingdom Hearts Union χ[Cross] during the Kingdom Hearts 15th Anniversary Commemorative Campaign Preview Night held at Square Enix Café Osaka on October 13th, 2017.
  • Nomura stated that the character of Ventus from Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep is the "same person" as seen in Kingdom Hearts Union χ[Cross].
  • When asked if Lauriam from Kingdom Hearts Union χ[Cross] and Marluxia are the same person, he replied, "Lauriam is Lauriam."
  • Regarding the story of Kingdom Hearts Union χ[Cross], he said, "[It] will not be completed in Kingdom Hearts III. (Not everything will be revealed in Kingdom Hearts III.)"

During the Kingdom Hearts 15th Anniversary Commemorative Campaign Preview Night held at Square Enix Café Osaka on October 13th, 2017, staff in charge of the development of Kingdom Hearts III, such as series director Tetsuya Nomura, executive producer Shinji Hashimoto, and co-director Tai Yasue, met with fans and answered questions, providing snippets of information regarding the upcoming title.

During the event, Nomura introduced Mr. Yamasaki as the person in charge of character models for Kingdom Hearts III, jokingly saying, "If you’re not satisfied with a character, please remember Mr Yamasaki!"

Yamasaki reported the following:

Young Xehanort and Xemnas are still under development for Kingdom Hearts III, so their faces still need some adjustments. Since they're different from Kingdom Hearts II, the jaw is getting longer and the adjustments are laborious.


A model for Xemnas was previously shown in the Kingdom Hearts III Orchestra trailer, and a model for Young Xehanort was show in the Toy Story trailer at D23 Expo 2017. From the statement above, it can be inferred that they may not have been the final models.

Sora's height was also reported to be 160 cm - 3 cm shorter than Yamasaki himself. It is unclear whether this is Sora's original or current height; however, as Yamasaki had been commenting on models for Kingdom Hearts III, it is possible this is referring to the height of Sora in Kingdom Hearts III.

Regarding other characters' heights, Yamasaki said:

I have a proper idea of them. It is undecided whether to announce it or not though. But based on it, we can create models. For Xehanort…I cannot say it but, who knows, maybe he’s over 180cm?


Furthermore, when asked a question about whether he has been planning to create models for hooded characters such as the Master of Masters, Yamasaki responded:

Yes! I’ll make sure to do it! But [whether or not] to make them public depends on Mr Nomura. I’ve colored* in black the one I did.


*He might have been referring to the black cloak that the Master of Masters is seen wearing in Kingdom Hearts χ Back Cover.

It was also reported that Riku's and Kairi's Kingdom Hearts III outfits are not quite done yet as they’re evolving everyday, and that they will have a hood. This statement may have been referring to the in-game models rather than the design, as Nomura had previously stated that Riku's outfit design had been completed. He had also commented that Riku's Kingdom Hearts III outfit was based on the one he's shown in in the Kingdom Hearts χ 3rd anniversary Key Art. In the illustration, Kairi is also seen wearing an outfit with a hood.

- Sora's birthday isn't specified, but it should be the day of his debut (March 28, 2002), just as other Disney characters.
- There is desire of making supporting characters and Organization XIII mini figures, so Nomura will think about it.
- Sea Salt Ice Creams at the event had winner sticks among them at the event which attendees were able to be exchange for a free coaster.
- They worked hard to host the Café, and maybe there are no more chances to do so, so Nomura asked everyone to enjoy that month.
- There is no schedule for a release of Nomura’s art collection at the moment.
- There is also no plans for selling a Promotional Video collection for now.
- The staff said that the release of the Kingdom Key prop replica should be asked to Bandai, as they are the ones who Disney handed the rights to.

Kairi's weapon is a thing of beauty, with a cresting wave at the handle, a golden vine wrapping around the shaft, and flowers forming the teeth at the end. And for the Keychain? A paopu fruit! Legend has it that if two people share a paopu fruit, their destinies become intertwined. We're not sure what the legends say about smashing some Heartless with a Keyblade that has one hanging from it, but we're sure it's something good. This adorable little recreation of the Destiny's Embrace comes on a chain so you can wear it daily - if your heart is strong enough to wield it!

For our customers with nickel allergies: This item may contain nickel.

Today marks the 9th birthday of KH13.com! We are publishing this special feature to celebrate almost a decade of the impact KH13.com has had in the Kingdom Hearts community since its creation on October 9, 2008! KH13.com is now one of the best Kingdom Hearts fansites for news and media.

KH13.com originally started in 2008 by KH13 Webmaster DChiuch, with the help of Co-Webmaster Aaron. The website started out as a simple project between friends, however, soon became a full-fledged website for Kingdom Hearts news, media and discussion. At the time, high quality videos and media were hard to come by, so KH13 initially established itself by providing high quality trailer and cutscene downloads.

The name "KH13" was eventually settled on in a brainstorming session, after it was discovered that KH1.com through KH12.com were all taken – it seemed fitting that the first available domain would match up with Organization XIII. Around this time, KH13.com began to report Kingdom Hearts news, with the first article on Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days.

In January, 2009, KH13 decided to do the first major redesign, which was then released on January 14th, 2009. You can check out the design below.

(Does this bring back any memories?)

Since then we have updated the website designs a couple of times; the current design is the 3rd update!

Skipping ahead to 2011, KH13 had become more well known, allowing us to start sending representatives to E3 as part of the press. sqexgal (now from SQEX.INFO) was our first representative, and former KH13 News Team member Oishii, Kingdom Hearts community veteran Churro, KH13 staff member (and former News Team Leader) Toominator, and Kingdom Hearts χ Team and News Team member Raxaimus have all been part of the experience since.

One important feature that has been prominent throughout KH13 is our gallery & 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 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.

This past year has saw much excitement in the Kingdom Hearts Community. In November of 2016, the opening cinematics of Kingdom Hearts 0.2 -A fragmentary passage- was revealed at Paris Game Week. In January 2017, Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue was released in Japan on the 12th and worldwide on the 24th. In March, the first performance of the Kingdom Hearts Orchestra - World Tour - began in Tokyo, Japan.

The tour had many stops around the world, which included London, Singapore, Los Angeles, and New York. During the tour, KH13 held three successful fan meetups. Social Media Team Leader Andrew Hankinson and News Team Leader Aquaberry hosted the first #KH13MeetUp in London in March 2017. The second one in Los Angeles was hosted by the dedicated Raxaimus. The third one was in New York, hosted by Toominator and Kingdom Hearts χ Team member Exilra. We gave out exclusive KH13 stickers to the lucky attendees, and had a card in each location for Yoko Shimomura, which fans at the meetup decorated with heartfelt thank you messages for the series composer.

We've made a montage for of each meetup with the help of our team members and Project Destati. You can watch them below!




In June 2017, during the World Tour concerts in Los Angeles, Tetsuya Nomura made a guest appearance where he revealed a new Kingdom Hearts III trailer. This trailer included gameplay of Olympus Coliseum and a cutscene from Twilight Town. At the end of the trailer, an announcement of an extended trailer was shown, giving the date of its release as July 15, 2017, at the D23 Expo in Anaheim, California.

As promised, this new extended Kingdom Hearts III trailer was revealed during the Level Up! segment of D23. This trailer revealed a new KH3 world: the world of Toy Story. The trailer showed off some gameplay along with a long cutscene of Sora, Donald, and Goofy meeting Woody, Buzz, and a few other toys in Andy’s room. At the end of the trailer was the most awaited news by the Kingdom Hearts community for more than a decade: a release year for Kingdom Hearts III, set for 2018!

All throughout this time, there have been exciting developments in KHUχ; in March 2017, the update from Kingdom Hearts Unchained χ to Kingdom Hearts Union χ was announced. The story has developed greatly to include a new (and old?) set of characters and plot twists that are but making players and non-players alike excited for how they will play out in the upcoming Kingdom Hearts III! For the sake of avoiding spoilers, we won't say any more, but you can check out the videos of KHUχ gameplay and story updates on Everglow's channel, the most recent being the product of hard work of KH13 translators Mio-chan and Lady Aleister.

The KH13.com community has also been growing on social media. Our Twitter (@KH13.com) has almost 25,000 followers. Our Facebook page (KH13.com, for Kingdom Hearts) has hit the 20,000 likes mark. We also have a new Playstation community page!

As we enter our 9th year, we would like to thank our current leaders of our various teams, which includes Aquaberry, WakelessDream, faemarch, and Andrew Hankinson; our vice leaders Leamax, Exilra and Wan_Pisu; and our LoL (Leader of Leaders): HarLea Quinn. We would also like to thank Toominator, Jake, and the current and past members of our various teams for their contributions to the page.

We'd like to also give the most important thanks of all to you, our readers, and the Kingdom Hearts community. Thanks to everyone here on KH13 for sticking with us for these 9 years. We hope to be around for many more, and to continue to provide the latest Kingdom Hearts news and media!
