New Kingdom Hearts phone cases are now available for pre-order through Gain Garage, a Japanese online store for phone merchandise. These new phone cases display different artwork from Kingdom Hearts II, such as the cover art, opening scene, stained glass floor, and other parts of the game. You can check out the different case designs below. Thanks goes to @aibo_ac7 & DTimes.jp for the tip.


Phone cases

These phone cases are available on iPhone 5, 5s, SE, 6, 6s, & 7, as well as Xperia X Performance, Compact, & Xperia XZ. The cases for iPhone 5, 5s, SE, 6, 6s and 7 are currently priced at 2,180 yen, whereas those for the iPhone 7Plus and Xperia are priced at 2,280 yen. They will be released on March 3, 2017 in Japan.

Cards that allow you to pre-order Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 ReMIX have been found in stores. These certificates have art of Sora, Donald, and Goofy on the front with the release date and information about the game compilation on the back. It also has the slogan "Remember, Relive, Rejoice" on the front which appears to be a slogan that hasn't ever been used before in the series.

The card requires a minimum deposit of $5.00 USD.

Photos of the card taken by Churro can be seen below:

The official North American Twitter account for Square Enix Merchandise has revealed a new image of the previously mentioned Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth By Sleep -A fragmentary passage- Aqua Play Arts Kai figure at the New York Toy Fair. You can view the image below:

The figure will be released in July 2017. The price is yet to be known.

At the Monaco Anime Game International Conference (MAGIC), Kingdom Hearts series director Tetsuya Nomura held a presentation on his career. This presentation included a brief mention of Kingdom Hearts III, with a new screenshot being shown. (via @TheSharePlayers)



KH3 Magic Screenshot 1

In this screenshot, we can see Sora in Olympus Colosseum using Guard Form with a new shield-based transformation for an unrevealed Keyblade. He also appears to be battling a new type of Heartless. Additionally, one of the command menu slots displays the word "Link", possibly as part of this new transformation. Finally, the wording for the yellow gauge near Sora's health has been changed from "EX" (as seen in the Jump Festa 2015 trailer) to "Focus", matching the format seen in Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth by Sleep -A Fragmentary Passage-.

A close-up shot of Guard Form can be seen below, thanks to @RedMakuzawa.



KH3 Magic Screenshot 2

Unfortunately, no new trailer is confirmed at the moment according to @RedMakuzawa. Only the screenshot was shown at the presentation.

UPDATE: A higher quality, direct feed image of the screenshot can now be seen thanks to the official Kingdom Hearts twitter account.



KH3 Magic Screenshot 3

UPDATE 2:
According to Gameblog.fr, Nomura stated the screenshot takes place in the city of Thebes. The Keyblade has the ability to change into a lot of things, some of which are the aforementioned shield and a chariot. He also clarified that the new form in the screenshot is the Power Form, which contradicts the information that we received last time about Power Form. We'll bring clarification as soon as we get it.

UPDATE 3: The quote from Tetsuya Nomura regarding Power Form has been translated and clarified thanks to Dandelion from KHInsider.

This is the first time we're showing this screenshot of Kingdom Hearts III, it's happening in Thebes and they are fighting a new type of Heartless. The Keyblade can transform into a lot of things. When in Power Form it can be changed into a chariot.

Less than a few hours ago, Seth Kearsley had stated in a post on his Twitter feed that he had exchanged emails and opened up a dialog that would allow him to pitch a do-over regarding a Kingdom Hearts animated television series.

Emails have been exchanged. Dialog has at least been started. Pitching a do-over with the current skill set. #kingdomhearts

No further details have been stated, though this is not the first time this particular animated Kingdom Hearts TV show had been proposed. For those who are unaware, Seth Kearsley had been approached shortly after Kingdom Hearts was released about creating an animated television series based off of it and this is a revival of that very same project, though whether or not it will have the same worlds, the same style or even the same game is uncertain.

Update: According to Seth Kearsley's latest tweets, he is still not sure if Disney will allow this project or not, but the talks for it have already begun. He also mentioned that the project would be an anime developed by Mir Studios with the Disney characters in cartoon style and developed by an external studio and it would take place in an alternate timeline from the games, but following the overall plot from them. This project would be aired after Kingdom Hearts III releases, according to Seth Kearsley's answer on Twitter. Keep in mind, however, that these are just Seth's thoughts and expectations about the project; nothing has currently been set in stone.
