    Game Grumps really need to play more crappy perverted visual novels. I don't remember the last time I laughed as hard as I did watching them play Sakura Spirit.

Something that the original Kingdom Hearts and Kingdom Hearts II have in common is that they are the only games in the Kingdom Hearts series to receive dubbed localizations for languages other than Japanese and English. Both games were officially released with German and French voices in their home countries, with Kingdom Hearts II also receiving a release with Spanish voices. Since then, all Kingdom Hearts titles have only released with English voice acting in Europe.

A group named DisneyCentral.de have created a petition to try and make a change to this, aiming to convince Square Enix to releases patches for Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX and Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX with the European dubbed voices from Kingdom Hearts and Kingdom Hearts II included, and more importantly, for Kingdom Hearts III to receive a full dubbed European localization, due to its status as a highly-anticipated blockbuster title.

Square Enix Germany have responded to this petition, and thanks to the team at DisneyCentral.de, we have this in English for you below:

As you've said yourself, we cannot give you many answers yet [regarding dubs]. Sadly, we don't make these decisions on our own and are bound to consulting with other territories and financial requirements. Presumably, we cannot change these requirements for the current HD [1.5] ReMIX (despite fantastic sales figures).

This is connected to us already working on future AAA titles to deliver fans known quality. So we'll try to implement all customer wishes for Kingdom Hearts 3. Including a German dub. Of course I cannot promise you anything yet for which it is way too early and we're not ready yet. But I think [the chance of a localization] doesn't look bad.

Hey everyone. KH13.com will be running a competition to give away two free pre-orders for the English version of Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX! Entering the competition is simple. For a chance to win the 1st copy of the game, you must make posts on our forum. The more you post, the better the chance you have of winning! Here's the exact procedure:


1. At the end of each day, everyone in the top 10 of the the list of the day's top posters will receive 1 entry ticket in the competition.

2. You can receive many tickets in the competition! If you're on the top posters list on multiple days, then you will receive multiple entries in the competition. We'll keep a detailed list of entries here. Remember, the more days you appear on the list, the higher your chance of winning! Also, please be aware that the Roleplaying, Forum Games and Random forums are not included, and that we will disqualify anyone who makes "spammy" posts.

3. Out of these 60 tickets, 1 person will be randomly selected as the winner of the 1st HD 2.5 ReMIX pre-order!


1. For the 2nd copy of the game, you must follow us on our Facebook or Twitter, and share our post about this article. As long as you do one of the two following things (or both, which will double your chances of winning), then you'll be in the running to win!

- Like us on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/kh13com) and share this post (share publicly so we can see it)
- Follow us on Twitter (https://twitter.com/KH13com) and retweet this post

2. Out of everyone who does this, we'll randomly select 1 person as the winner of the 2nd HD 2.5 ReMIX pre-order! The competition will be much more tight here (we're expecting over 1000 people to enter this way), so we recommend that people also try their best to enter the first competition as well (where your chances are much greater, due to only 60 tickets being available in total). Good luck!


Some extra details:

- Don't cancel any pre-orders that you've already placed. If you have already pre-ordered then we will simply cover the price of the game for you!
- Just under a week from now, on Sunday the 3rd of August, 2014 (at 1AM EST time), the winners of the competition will be announced here. Good luck!

Haley Joel Osment, the English voice actor for Sora in the Kingdom Hearts series, was questioned today by IGN at San Diego Comic-Con International 2014. IGN asked Osment if he had done any voice recording work for Kingdom Hearts III, and this is what Osment had to say. Thanks go to @churroz for the tip and for roxasman1231 for posting it on KH13 first.

Have you done anything for Kingdom Hearts III yet? Anything you can share?

I am not allowed to share-- every time, we've done a couple of installments, I am on paper not allowed to share anything about it. But I know Kingdom Hearts fans are really loyal and dedicated and they will not be disappointed when we get around to whatever is in the future.

The full video is below.


In an interview with Siliconera at San Diego Comic-Con, Tetsuya Nomura, director of the Kingdom Hearts series has revealed that his new Batman design shown off at San Diego Comic-Con International 2014 was actually from a very old cancelled video game project, could have influenced armor design in Kingdom Hearts armor. This quote is below.

The Batman figure, especially its armor, reminds me of the Kingdom Hearts series and the armor Keyblade users wear [in Birth by Sleep].

Actually, to be honest, the project that never got off the ground was done before Kingdom Hearts was conceived. It might be the opposite—the design from that early project influenced Kingdom Hearts and armor design in that series.

Nomura ended the interview by mentioning that he would love for figurines of the lead characters from Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep to be created. Could we see Square Enix release these eventually?

There are a lot of Square Enix figures based on your characters. Which figure is your favorite and what characters did you make that you want to see figures of?

I’d love to have figures of the three lead characters from Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep.

San Diego Comic-Con 2014 is well under way with Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX appearing with the playable demo from E3 2014. Various merchandise is also available for purchase including new Play Arts figures. Square Enix has also revealed their Limited Edition release for Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX in North America, Australia & Europe, along with new screenshots of the Kingdom Hearts Re:coded HD Cinematic Story Videos. Tetsuya Nomura, director of the Kingdom Hearts series is also attending to sign autographs on special postcards for those who purchase a qualified Play Arts Kai figure at Square Enix's booth.

As with any other event there is photos of merchandise, demo booths and more. You can view all of our photos concerning the Kingdom Hearts series at San Diego Comic-Con 2014 below, in our gallery thanks to Square Enix & Churro.
