Japan Expo 2013 is a convention on Japanese popular culture, taking place in Paris, France from July 4 to July 7, 2013. Square Enix France have announced via Facebook that the Kingdom Hearts series will make an appearance at the event. Shinji Hashimoto, executive producer, and Yoko Shimomura, composer of the series, will both be attending the event. Last year, Kingdom Hearts 3D [Dream Drop Distance] appeared with a playable demo, making it likely that Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX might appear at this year's event.
Hidemi Matsuzuka has revealed that a special Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX wall scroll is being produced. Hidemi uploaded a photo of the wall scroll to his Facebook, and this photo can be seen below.
Yoko Shimomura, the composer of the Kingdom Hearts series, has Tweeted regarding the possibility of a soundtrack being released for Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX. Shimomura stated that it is not yet determined whether or not they will release a soundtrack for the game, and said that a soundtrack will be more likely to become a reality if people voice their desire for it.
London Expo 2013 is an event being held in London this weekend. Square Enix have confirmed that Kingdom Hearts merchandise will be available at the event for purchase and display via their Square Enix Products Europe Facebook page. You can view all photos from the event below, in our gallery.
In February, GameTrailers teased an upcoming unofficial "Kingdom Hearts Timeline" video. This is the second video in GameTrailers' timeline series, which goes into great depths in explaining the story of a video game series. Today, GameTrailers have finally released the full video-- 52 minutes long, this video explains the story of the whole Kingdom Hearts series, and finishes up by speculating about Kingdom Hearts III. We wouldn't normally post a news article about an unofficial video, but we felt that this was so well-made that it would be worth sharing with everyone. Enjoy!
Hidemi Matsuzuka has revealed that a special Kingdom Hearts themed pencilcase is being produced. Hidemi uploaded a photo of the pencilcase to his Twitter, and this photo can be seen below.
Update: Hidemi Matsuzuka has shared new images of the pencilcase and accessory pouch, and these can be viewed below.
Square Enix have also updated the e-STORE listings of both items (accessory pouch | pencilcase), revealing that both will be released on August 31, 2013. The accessory pouch will be ¥2,200 (approximately US$21.29), while the pencilcase will be ¥1,800 (approximately US$17.42). Thanks go to aibo_ac7 and Weiss from KH13 for the find.
Earlier, Square Enix Europe held a promotional event showing off Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX in London. Attendees were asked to talk about this experience on camera, and Square Enix have turned this into a "Community Video" commercial for the game. This can be seen below, thanks to SquareEnixGermany. Enjoy!
Update: Square Enix France have uploaded a French-subtitled version of the video to their own Facebook page.
