London Expo 2013 is an event being held in London this weekend.

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.

Enjoy!
Update: Square Enix France have uploaded a French-subtitled version of the video to their own Facebook page.
