    Am I the only person who thinks that Cutiefly looks sort of like a Lum from the more recent Rayman games like Jungle Run?

Square Enix has confirmed that Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue will be at the annual Japan Expo, an event held in Paris, France, with a playable demo for all attendees. Japan Expo will be held from July 7th through the 10th. Previously released titles in the Kingdom Hearts series such as Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX have appeared at the event with a playable demo.

Additionally, Shinji Hashimoto has been confirmed to appear as a special guest, doing various signings for attendees to receive.

Thanks goes to KHDestiny for this tip.

Update: Kevin G. Quinn has replied to a tweet from our staff member confirming his involvement in Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue as the voice of Master Gula, the Foreteller of the Leopardos union. A screenshot of the tweet can be viewed below.

An old tweet from May 23rd on Karissa Lee Staples's official Twitter account points to the actress being behind the voice of Master Invi in the movie Kingdom Hearts χ Back Cover, contained in the HD collection Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue. The tweet shows a message directed at Skylark Sound Studios. The picture in the tweet reveals a blurred still of what seems to be a scene from Kingdom Hearts χ Back Cover, apparently featuring Master Invi, the Foreteller of the Anguis union, facing the figure of Master Aced, the Foreteller of the Ursus union, who has his back turned to the viewer. You can view the tweet below as well as a close-up of the still, which was not featured in the pre-E3 2016 trailer of the game.

Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue is due to be released worldwide on December 2016 for PS4. It will feature the return of Willa Holland as Aqua in Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth by Sleep -A Fragmentary Passage-, as well as previous voice recordings from other actors in the remastered game Kingdom Hearts HD Dream Drop Distance. The HD collection is in the final stages of production, with voice recordings for the English dub "almost done" as mentioned by series director Tetsuya Nomura in his latest interview with Famitsu.

Update: Famitsu has kindly provided us with more details on the new update for Kingdom Hearts Unchained χ.

This includes a new "Proud Mode" setting, allowing players to experience missions on a harder difficulty. Currently, only missions 1-50 are available in proud mode. More will be added on soon.

Aside from proud mode, there will be a new "high score" event, where you battle enemies for the highest scores against other players. Those who rank high in the event get a voiced Maleficent medal.

Lastly, the second half of the new Alice event has begun. Those who complete it get a new "Alice & Cheshire" medal.

The original article is as follows.
On June 30th, at 10:00 AM JST (9:00 PM USA EDT, 6:00 PM USA PDT, on the 29th), Kingdom Hearts Unchained χ will be updated to Version 1.3.0, introducing a new Keyblade, which is the Sleeping Lion Keyblade originally in Kingdom Hearts II. Aside from a new Keyblade, there will be new events, a new 'mystery' medal, and more.

Tai Yasue, co-director of the Kingdom Hearts series, was recently interviewed by PlayStation Access about Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue, which appeared at E3 2016 with a new trailer confirming a December, 2016 Worldwide release date, and new gameplay footage confirming 60 FPS for Kingdom He​arts Dream Drop Distance HD, the first title in the Kingdom Hearts series to feature 60 FPS.

In the interview, they discuss why Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue is important to experience before experiencing Kingdom Hearts III. Topics such as what is in the Realm of Darkness in Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth by Sleep -A Fragmentary Passage-, how Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue fits into the storyline, and more are discussed in the interview.

Thanks goes to KH13 member Shinobi Palace for the find. You can check out the interview video below.


In an interview with 4Gamer.net, Co-Director Tai Yasue confirmed that the difficulty levels within Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth by Sleep -A Fragmentary Passage- can be changed by the player. In this interview, Yasue also goes on to talk about the improved platforming within the maps, their process with developing using Unreal Engine 4, and how Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance HD will be the first game in the Kingdom Hearts series to play at 60 frames per second.

A full translation of this interview will be provided as soon as possible.

With new gameplay shown at E3 2016, allowing players to go hands on with Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue, Tai Yasue, co-director of the Kingdom Hearts series, sat down with Famitsu to discuss the new gameplay mechanics on Kingdom Hearts 0.2 -A Fragmentary Passage-, the flow of the game, the controls, the lighting/graphics, and more on how Unreal Engine 4 has made developing Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth by Sleep -A Fragmentary Passage- easy for the team. You can read the main highlights of the interview below.

  • The demo was very popular, players saying the gameplay was easy and the tempo was good, and the visuals were stunning.
  • The appearance of Kingdom Hearts 0.2 has significantly changed from past games of the series due to Unreal Engine 4
  • It was difficult trying to program a fantasy based realism for the game.
  • You can use Blizzard spells to activate Flowmotion.
  • AI has improved, such as Heartless moving differently on different terrain.
  • 'Devils Wave' (The Heartless boss in 0.2 described by Nomura) has a special reflection effect in their eyes
  • Maps have changed a lot with Birth by Sleep 0.2 and that's something you'll see in Kingdom Hearts III as well. For example, Aqua having to fight on a slope in the demo.
  • Tai Yasue comments how interesting it is to play in a Disney world that has sunken into Darkness


We will have the full interview translated as soon as possible.

Even though not much is new discussed by Tai Yasue, it's still great to hear about the flow of the game and what we can expect in the gameplay aspect for Kingdom Hearts III.
