In the January 2018 issue of PlayStation Official Magazine UK published back in December, and the February issue of PlayStation Official Magazine - Australia published recently, Kingdom Hearts III was featured in the Previews section. In its short blurb, it is claimed that the game is split between the perspectives of both Sora and Riku, and that a world based upon the Disney movie "Fantasia" will be present in the game. Other bits of information that we already knew about it were also stated, such as needing to stop Xehanort from starting another Keyblade War, a Toy Story world and a Tangled world being present, Drive Forms returning, wall-running, and more.

You can view the Kingdom Hearts III section from the magazine in the album below:

Kingdom Hearts III PlayStation Magazine UK January 2018 1 Kingdom Hearts III PlayStation Magazine UK January 2018 2 Kingdom Hearts III PlayStation Magazine UK January 2018 3


Kingdom Hearts series director Tetsuya Nomura has hinted at a second playable character in Kingdom Hearts III before, and has more recently confirmed a second playable character in the game, but it is currently unknown as to what character this is.

The alleged claim of the game being split between the perspectives of Sora and Riku seems to hint at the fact that Riku could be the second playable character in Kingdom Hearts III. But, as this is only stated in PlayStation Official Magazine UK and PlayStation Official Magazine - Austrailia, and not stated by Square Enix or Tetsuya Nomura, or accompanied by any interview or direct statement, it is difficult to judge the validity of these statements.

As for the comment about the Fantasia world, a Fantasia-themed world titled "Symphony of Sorcery" has been featured in the series before in the title "Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance." These statements overall sound very similar to Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance, as the game included both a Fantasia-themed world, as well as it being from the perspectives of both Sora and Riku. It's possible that they are confusing some elements of Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance with Kingdom Hearts III. It's also possible that they are simply referring to The Mysterious Tower when they say that a Fantasia world will be in the game.

We have contacted PlayStation Official Magazine UK for clarification.

What are your thoughts on this Kingdom Hearts III excerpt from the January 2018 issue of PlayStation Official Magazine UK and the February 2018 issue of PlayStation Official Magazine - Australia? Do you think these statements hold any weight? Could they have had a misunderstanding or be mistaken? Let us know what you think in the comments below.

Bandai is bringing its line of Kingdom Hearts figures to the West with its upcoming release of the Kingdom Hearts II Sora S.H.Figuarts figure on January 25, 2018.

The beautifully crafted figure, which was previously released in November 2017 in Japan, stands at around six inches with two sets of hands and faces alongside Sora’s signature Kingdom Key Keyblade. The figure is highly posable and sits at around the same height as the Bring Arts line of figures.

You can take a look at the pictures of the figure below:

Bandai’s first in the S.H.Figuarts line is distributed by Bluefin Distribution for US and Canadian markets, and can be pre-ordered from Amazon for $59.07 USD here.

Back in September 2017, it was announced that there will be a new Kingdom Hearts Bring Arts figure of Sora in his new Second Form from Kingdom Hearts III that will be releasing in 2018. This new Drive Form of Sora's was first shown off in the Kingdom Hearts III - Orchestra Trailer. Second Form is tied to the Kingdom Key Keyblade and gives Sora's outfit the same colors as his Kingdom Hearts II outfit, and allows Sora to use abilities from Kingdom Hearts II and the first Kingdom Hearts, similar to how Limit Form worked in Kingdom Hearts II. So, the figure will also come with the Kingdom Key Keyblade.

Now, it has been revealed by Previews World that the Sora (Second Form) Bring Arts figure will be releasing May 30, 2018, and will be available to purchase for $59.99 USD. You can find out if you can pre-order it from your local comic shop here.

The product description for the Kingdom Hearts III Sora (Second Form) Bring Arts figure, provided by Previews World, can be seen below:

From Square Enix. A PREVIEWS Exclusive! This action figure of Sora, the protagonist of KINGDOM HEARTS III, has been re-created with great detail even though it stands at only six inches tall. This easy-to-carry figure is so compact it fits right in the palm of your hands! With a wide range of motion in the articulated joints, you can recreate action poses and scenes from the game. Sora's Keyblade, which comes in two separate forms, as well as plenty of other interchangeable hands and face parts are included with the figure to make him even more fun to pose. Paintwork that faithfully recreates the in-game CG, such as the crisp contrast of colors, creates a small but impressive figure. Figure includes display stand.

This is following the recent news that the Sora (Second Form) Bring Arts figure will be available to purchase at D23 Expo Japan 2018. The figure will cost ¥6,264 (approx. $56.69 USD), tax included. D23 Expo Japan 2018 will take place from February 10th - 12th, 2018. This figure is also a part of the D23 pre-order lottery, where it's available with only 2,000 copies. You can find out more about the figure being sold at D23 Expo Japan 2018 and the D23 pre-order lottery in the article here.

Kingdom Hearts series director Tetsuya Nomura has previously stated that "Second Form" is only a tentative name for the time being so this new Drive Form will possibly get a name change in the future.

What do you guys think about this figure? Will you be buying it as a companion to your Play Arts Kai figure of Kingdom Hearts III Sora, the upcoming Bring Arts figure of Sora's Kingdom Hearts III Guardian Form, or the upcoming Bring Arts figures of Sora, Donald, and Goofy from the Toy Story world in Kingdom Hearts III?

These watches are similar to a previously released Kingdom Hearts watch by K.uno that released on October 28, 2017 on ZOZOTOWN Rendez-Vous as a part of the online retailer's Disney Lifestyle Collection. The main differences between that watch and these new watches is that the crown symbol on the previous watch was black rather than the golden color it is on the recent two watches, as well as the D23 logo being on the recent two watches. You can find out the pricing and how to purchase the previous watch in the article here, but it's currently sold out as their were only 50 copies available.

The Kingdom Hearts III Sora (Second Form) Bring Arts figure will be available to purchase at D23 Expo Japan 2018 as well, and it's also a part of the D23 pre-order lottery with only 2,000 copies available. Check out more about that in the article here.
