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:

Fob


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!

Fob


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.

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.

Update: Kaori Takasue, the Product Manager at Square Enix Japan Studios, has shared some comments on the official PlayStation blog about the size of the HD 2.5 ReMIX case, and how exactly the pin will be included. These are quoted below.

Hi +yourworldonfire :) thanks for liking the look of the pin, it makes us really happy. Art book for 1.5 remix was definitely a success too. The box standing next to each other is kind of a big deal to us, so we may have to make sure that the size matches up nicely next to your Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX box.

Hello +Arsenic 13, the brand manager from Kingdom Hearts 1.5 ReMIX told me that it was “critical” that we carry that side by side heights be similar. You can’t have one tall and one short right?! Let’s see what we can do about that. How about a window where you can say peek-a-boo to your pin somehow? We’re cranking ideas everyday! Thanks for your support!


Square Enix North America has unveiled their Play Arts Kai table at San Diego Comic Con 2014, revealing new Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX figures of Sora and Roxas.

Kingdom Hearts χ is celebrating their 1st anniversary, and they are treating the players with new events, cards and even an autographed postcard by Tetsuya Nomura himself. To be awarded one of the autographed postcards, a Hall of Fame ranking was created for the players. The lucky winners of these rare postcards will be the ones who ranked 1st place in different categories like most Lux (light points) collected, most raid bosses defeated, and most treasure chests opened, among others categories.

If you started playing Kingdom Hearts χ in the past but then stopped for any given reason, right now is the time to come back, as the website is also doing a comeback campaign. Any players that have not logged in for over a month and log in during the 1st Anniversary events will be able to obtain many free items like new cards, potions, ether, and Moogle medals (these are coins used in the game to buy other items).

To help with the celebrations, Donald and Goofy have appeared for the first time in Kingdom Hearts χ. They can be found in a special area of Daybreak Town. Our favorite sidekicks arrived here and now need our help gathering gummi pieces that can be obtained by defeating certain heartless in the game. The gathered gummi pieces can also be exchanged for new cards and items at the Moogle Trade. Among the things you can buy with your gummi blocks are new sets of clothes that are themed after our favorite gummi ship engineers, Chip and Dale.

Another special treat for players was the release of the 1st Anniversary Premium boxes. These can only be purchased with real money, each being 10,000 yen (approximately US$98.20). They are filled with great items, but the main attraction is a special attack card that commemorates the game's 1st Anniversary and comes with a multiplier boost of x5 in its attack and defense points.

Lastly, the game is also awarding new cards to everyone who logs in every week during the 1st Anniversary events and offers a x2 multiplier on experience gained from fighting enemies and card synthesis. These events and celebrations will end once the maintenance on August 14th starts.
Here is Nomura's postcard, as well as some other images released to promote the event:

As you may remember, VGO is the orchestra responsible for the re-orchestrated soundtrack of Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix in Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX.
