    So I changed my profile pic to Roxas, after I've decided that Roxas is my new favorite character after watching 258/2 days the second time. Sora is now 2nd... maybe KHIII, Sora... maybe KHIII

Square Enix has announced that Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX has won an award at Tokyo Game Show 2014 from the Japan Game Awards for 2014 titled "Future Division" which is awarded to games that haven't been released yet. You can view pictures of the award and of Square Enix being presented the award below.



Yen Press, a United States-based localisation company for Japanese manga and novels, have revealed on their Kingdom Hearts page that they will be releasing Kingdom Hearts: The Novel sometime in March 2015. Kingdom Hearts: The Novel will be 300 pages long (at a size of 5-1/2″ x 8-1/4″), and will be available for US$16.00.

The novel is listed with artist Shiro Amano and writer Tomoco Kanemaki, indicating that this novel is likely a translated compilation of the first two Japanese Kingdom Hearts novels, The First Door and Darkness Within. The following novel description was also published:

On the Destiny Islands, three children–Sora, Riku, and Kairi–are living out their peaceful, carefree lives while yearning for whatever lies beyond the great ocean. But one night, an unexpected disaster takes place, and the three are torn from each other and their island home. Meanwhile, at Disney Castle, Donald Duck and the other castle residents are in an uproar upon discovering King Mickey has suddenly gone missing. When fate brings them together, Sora, Donald, and Goofy set out on a grand Disney adventure to find their friends!

IGN have uploaded footage of the new demo. You can view them below.

This trailer, originally released a few weeks ago, is being presented at the event:

IGN have uploaded a recording of the Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX demo at Tokyo Game Show 2014. As we previously reported, this is in fact a new demo. It features gameplay from the Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix portion of the demo and covers Cavern of Remembrance and the Demyx boss battle. You can view it below.

Update: IGN have uploaded more gameplay, this one shows more footage of Hollow Bastion including summoning Genie. You can view it all below.

The official upcoming Ultimania companion book for Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX, known as Kingdom Hearts Series Memorial Ultimania and now with the subtitle Before Kingdom Hearts III, is known to be releasing in Japan on the same day as HD 2.5 ReMIX-- October 2, 2014. Now, Square Enix have released the official cover artwork for the companion book. This can be seen below.


While Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX is appearing at Tokyo Game Show 2014 with a new playable demo and trailer, Kingdom Hearts III unfortunately has now been confirmed to not appear at this year's event. Kingdom Hearts Ultimania asked a member of the Square Enix staff at the Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX demo booth where Kingdom Hearts III is, they responded with "the game is still in the very early stages of development and it’ll be ready to show, when it’s ready. We have Kingdom Hearts 2.5 coming out this year, playable at the show, and that’s our focus right now’".

As we've reported previously, Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX is featuring at Tokyo Game Show 2014 with a playable demo. Previously, the exact same demo has been used to show off HD 2.5 ReMIX at trade shows-- but now, for the first time since Jump Festa in December 2013, a new demo is being shown off.

Thanks to KHUltimania, we know that the Tokyo Game Show 2014 demo features the main menu of the game, with Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix and Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep Final Mix selectable, but Kingdom Hearts Re:coded unavailable. In Birth by Sleep, you can play as Terra in the Castle of Dreams, and in Kingdom Hearts II, you can play through Space Paranoids. KHUltimania's impressions are included below:


We'll update with more demo impressions as they're released.

Game Watch have posted their written review for Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX and with it they have released new screenshots including one of the HD collection's title screen. You can view them below, in our gallery.

Tetsuya Nomura, director of the Kingdom Hearts series has stepped down as director of Final Fantasy XV, the title that has been in development since 2006 by the team who developed both Kingdom Hearts and Kingdom Hearts II. Square Enix CEO Yosuke Matsuda has released a statement that confirms Nomura will be focusing his efforts on Kingdom Hearts III. You can read this below thanks to Square Enix.

“As the director of FINAL FANTASY XV, Tetsuya Nomura has mainly worked on the original concept for the story and universe in addition to creating the characters. Hereafter, he will be focusing his efforts on the production of titles that can only be made possible by Nomura, himself, and delivering products that exceed the quality of past titles, starting with another one of his representative projects, KINGDOM HEARTS III. Square Enix will continue to work on these titles with the best staff formation in an effort to deliver them to everyone as soon as possible and appreciates your continued support.”

Update: Square Enix Europe have provided some extra insight about Nomura's change within these two projects, and this can be read below.


Following on from Dengeki Online's revealing review last week, Famitsu have posted a review for Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX, which releases in Japan on October 2, 2014. In this review, it is revealed that the Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX Secret Movie "may hint to Kingdom Hearts III", and that there are contents related to the browser game Kingdom Hearts χ.

This portion of the review can be read in full below, thanks to KH13 translator SkyKeybladeHero:

Re:coded, which explains the mission that was entrusted to Sora after the events of Kingdom Hearts II, had its Text based story-telling made into Voiced Scenes, just like Kingdom Hearts 1.5 ReMIX’s 358/2 Days. We could enjoy it very much (and now even the battles are included in the scenes). New scenes were also added, there are contents related to the Browse Game χ [chi], and we were even able to confirm a Secret Movie which may hint to Kingdom Hearts III. It is very nice of them (Square Enix) to do this, but it is also unfair to add such teasing material while the main games are already teasing us enough to know what will happen next.
