  1. Shinji Hashimoto talks fan feedback, possibility of future community events, and Kingdom Hearts III with KHIsland

    KHIsland, in conjunction with FFDream, Finaland, Gamergen, and Gamersflag, have conducted an interview with Kingdom Hearts series executive producer Shinji Hashimoto at MAGIC 2017. During the interview, Hashimoto talked about topics such as the relationship between Disney, whether Marvel Entertainment could have an impact on Kingdom Hearts III, the possibility of adding multiplayer mode in the upcoming game, and communication with fans.

    Below you can read extracts of the interview related to Kingdom Hearts. The full interview can be read here in French.

    Translations have been provided by KH13 staff member Mio–chan.

    ― Will the partnership between Square Enix and Marvel Entertainment have an impact on Kingdom Hearts 3? Will we find bits of the Marvel Universe in it, just like the Disney worlds that already exist in the previous titles of the series?

    Hashimoto: It’s not on the agenda for the moment. However, we may consider it in the future.

    ― Would it be possible to add a multiplayer mode in Kingdom Hearts 3?

    Hashimoto: You should ask this question to Mr. Nomura, he will be most likely to answer this.

    ― Why is this so difficult to communicate and give concrete and precise information on Final Fantasy VII Remake and Kingdom Hearts 3 to the fans?

    Hashimoto: You must know that for each future titles (i.e. FFVII Remake, KH3 etc), there is an established development planning. So we must first consult it to check on the progress of the game, to be able to convey the most interesting and relevant information to the public. To give you an example, many events will take place this year. There is Final Fantasy’s 30th Anniversary event, Final Fantasy VII’s 20th Anniversary event as well as Kingdom Hearts’ 15th Anniversary event. Knowing this, it is obvious that fans are expecting a lot and we wish to show more in order to celebrate all of these events. Regarding Final Fantasy’s 30th Anniversary, we have many events planned in Japan, Final Fantasy XV’s DLCs, Final Fantasy XII The Zodiac Age Remaster and the new extension of Final Fantasy XIV Stormblood. We wish we could give as much information as possible but it is imperative that we have control on the calendar in order, so that we can reveal relevant information at the precise time.

    ― Recently, you organized a special event to celebrate Final Fantasy’s 30th Anniversary in Japan. Can we hope for a similar event in France?

    Hashimoto: Outside Japan, we have two agencies: one in the USA in Los Angeles, and another one in the UK in London, who are in charge to plan and promote these kind of events. Moreover, we already gave concerts pretty much everywhere in the world on the occasion of the 15th Anniversary of Kingdom Hearts: The Kingdom Hearts Orchestra - World Tour -. It is just an example, but our British and American teams are considering organizing similar events.

    ― Can you tell us about the relationship you have with Disney for the development of Kingdom Hearts 3? Do they have a great influence, can they force you to do certain things or on the contrary block some ideas?

    Hashimoto: First of all, Disney has its own policy and own rules for the management of its movies, video games, and merchandise, etc. We try and at the same time must respect them as far as possible. Otherwise, they give us free reign most of the time. They allow us to create anything we want and Disney generally accepts our ideas, to the extent that it appeals to the fans who support us in our approaches and our ideas.

    ― You have produced a lot of Western licenses in recent years: Hitman, Deus Ex, and Tomb Raider etc. Are western licenses as important as Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts, or do they only allow Square Enix developed games to last?

    Hashimoto: For Mr. Matsuda (CEO of Square Enix), we must constantly renew and create new games and new licenses. Concerning Final Fantasy, we also seek to innovate while remaining in the spirit of the series. The President is always trying to give us new challenges.

    ― Following the reveal of The Avengers Project by Crystal Dynamics, can we hope to see future games based on the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but this time developed by the Japanese teams?

    Hashimoto: This partnership is similar to the one we already have with Disney for Kingdom Hearts. Firstly, it is necessary to successfully launch and implement the new licence. If the latter is a success, then perhaps we will follow on. We will wait and see what it is going to do before we do anything else.

    ― You stated that you listen a lot to the fans’ opinions, what are your sources and how do you use those opinions?

    Hashimoto: Nowadays, it is easy to establish a direct contact with the fans thanks to the social media and we can almost answer instantly to many critics. It is also much easier to fix what is wrong in a game via updates. Critics are important and we try to take them into account to satisfy as many people as we can.


    Monaco Anime Game International Conferences (MAGIC) recently took place on February 18, 2017. It was during this event that Kingdom Hearts series director Tetsuya Nomura showed off a screenshot of Sora in his Power Form battling a Heartless in the city of Thebes in Olympus Coliseum. Nomura was also interviewed at the event by FFDream and Famitsu.

  5. Chuck Terceira answers fan questions about the Diamond Select Toys Kingdom Hearts figures; they're planned to release in holiday 2017

    Earlier this year, Diamond Select Toys revealed, for the first time, the prototypes for their Kingdom Hearts figures at the New York Toy Fair. And later, they showed off improved versions at C2E2 2017 and at SDCC17. They've also been made available for pre-order. Recently, Kingdom Hearts figures for their Vinimates line have been shown off as well.

    Diamond Select Toys president Chuck Terceira, also known as DSTChuck, answered various fan questions about their figures and upcoming figures, which include things like Star Trek, Kill Bill, and of course, Kingdom Hearts, as a part of their Ask DST series. Check out the Kingdom Hearts questions asked, as well as the answers, below:

    Jeremiah J.: Hello, I am very excited about the Kingdom Hearts figures. I placed a pre-order for the two sets as soon as they were announced this morning. I have a few questions:

    1) It was revealed that there would be more figures in the first series. What happened to the rest? The missing figures that were previously revealed were: Roxas, Maleficent, Jafar with Abu and Iago, and Creeper Plant Heartless.

    2) What are our chances of getting a Beast figure (from Beauty and the Beast)? He was included in that game in his purple cowl.

    Besides people, myself included, have been asking for a Marvel Select Beast for a long time. I want Beast however I can get him! Joking aside, you could make the end all beat all version of Disney’s Beast. It would be an epic figure.


    DSTChuck: 1) The situation of which characters we can do and from which games is constantly evolving. As we go along, we will get more characters OK’d, or get clarity on what is allowed. What we showed at Toy Fair was mostly to show what we were doing and to gauge interest.

    2) For now, the Beast is not planned, but we’d love to include him!

    Huston: 5. Kingdom Hearts looks amazing! When will these beauties be released?

    DSTChuck: 5) Glad you like them! Our plan is to have one series out for holiday 2017 and several series in 2018.


    Check out the entire Ask DST #363 here!

    [UPDATE Nov. 15, 2017]: On November 6th, 2017, Diamond Select Toys' Kingdom Hearts Select series of figures were once again mentioned in one of their Ask DSTs with Diamond Select Toys president Chuck Terceira. This time, they discussed Kingdom Hearts, Pacific Rim, Star Trek, Gotham, Ghostbusters, iZombie, and more. Take a look at the Kingdom Hearts question that was asked by a fan, as well as the answer, below:

    Lucas D.: With the Kingdom Hearts select figures coming out, I know licensing is a factor and many Disney figures will probably be off the table but will we see characters from some of the Disney movies? Tarzan? Hercules?

    DSTChuck: The Kingdom Hearts license is very specific and does not necessarily include everything in the game.

  21. Sora from Kingdom Hearts' Japanese voice actor, Miyu Irino, at Anime Expo 2017; discusses his life with video games; says his favorite role is Sora

    Miyu Irino, who is better known as the Japanese voice actor for Sora from the Kingdom Hearts series, will be a Guest of Honor at this year's Anime Expo on July 1st to 4th at the Los Angeles Convention Center. In addition, he will be participating in a panel and be available for autographs.

    Posted Image


    UPDATE: Miyu Irino participated in a panel at Anime Expo 2017 a couple of weeks ago. He discussed about some of the characters he has voiced including Haku from Spirited Away, Saji Crossroad from Gundam 00, and of course Sora from Kingdom Hearts.

    When asked about if he liked video games:

    You’ve voice acted for video games. Do you enjoy playing video games yourself?

    Of course, in primary and junior high school, I’d play a lot of video games. In summer, I’d spend 8-12 hours a day playing video games, like Final Fantasy, Mario, action games, RPGs, lots of different types of games. I recently purchased a PS4, and I’m playing Kingdom Hearts 2.8 right now.


    When asked about which role he loves the most:

    We’ve talked about many roles today. Are there any types of roles you’d like to do?

    It’s a very difficult question; it’s not really a question of what role I like to play, but more about how I am able to develop the character. If I really had to choose, I’d say Sora from Kingdom Hearts, as it has been 15 years since I first started the role. Being involved with a project for that long is something special, and I’d like to continue being involved and see where it goes.

    UPDATE [Nov. 8, 2017]: A new photo that shows off the Final Form Sora Funko Pop! Vinyl has been released by Instagram user, @var1ant.sg. Take a look at it below:




    Kingdom Hearts Final Form Sora Funko Pop! Vinyl


    UPDATE [Nov. 11, 2017]: Several more images of the Shadow Heartless Funko Pop! Vinyl and the limited edition glow chase Shadow Heartless Funko Pop! Vinyl have been shown off by @sw_up_wr20 on Instagram. You can view them in the gallery with the other Shadow Heartless Funko Pop! Vinyl images above.

    UPDATE [Nov. 15, 2017]: More photos of the Final Form Sora, Riku, Kairi, and Shadow Heartless Funko Pop! Vinyls have been released by @spoiled.zen on Instagram. Also, a single photo of the Sora, Riku, Kairi, and Shadow Heartless Funko Pop! Vinyls was released by the official Funko Twitter account. You can check out these photos in the gallery with the other photos above.

    UPDATE [Nov. 17, 2017]: Twitter user @SFENGaming contacted GameStop, and they stated that they have changed their release dates for the Sora, Riku, Kairi, and Shadow Heartless Funko Pop! Vinyls. The updated date is now apparently set for January 1st, 2018. Amazon has the figures listed for release on December 15th, 2017.

    We have contacted GameStop about the change in date and they have confirmed once again that the Vinyls are coming on January 1st. We have also reached out to Funko about this and they declined to comment.

    However, several Twitter and Facebook users have reported information that they received that conflicts with these statements. Twitter users @darksoulsdylan, @lunastarmochi, and Facebook user Matthew Jamar claim to have contacted GameStop, who apparently stated that the Sora, Riku, Kairi, and Shadow Heartless Funko Pop! Vinyls are coming out on November 23rd, 2017. Facebook user Caity Dornan stated that November 23rd is the pre-order date she got from MyGeekBox as well. Twitter user @geek1928 says that his Vinyls are coming from a place other than GameStop on Monday (November 20th, 2017), while Facebook user Marcus McKiddy was apparently told by his local GameStop that the pre-orders for the Vinyls will be arriving next Wednesday (November 22nd, 2017), and Facebook user Ian Juntunen replied and stated he was told that they will be arriving on Thanksgiving, which is November 23rd. On November 15th, Ian Juntunen said that he was told that they were going to be released "tomorrow" (November 16th), which has since passed. Rose Strife on Facebook expressed that she was told they were releasing at GameStop in December.

    It's unknown which of these statements are true, which of these dates are just placeholder dates, and which one is real. It might be different for each location and each store or online store. Stay tuned to this space for further updates.

    UPDATE [Nov. 19, 2017]: The Shadow Heartless Funko Pop! Vinyl is now available to purchase at Hot Topic! You can buy it on the Hot Topic website for $12.50 USD here. The glow chase variant will be shipped randomly, as usual.

    You can view the Hot Topic product description for the Shadow Heartless Funko Pop! Vinyl here:

    A Shadow Heartless from Disney's Kingdom Hearts is given a fun, and funky, stylized look as an adorable collectible Pop! vinyl figure from Funko! If you're lucky, you may receive a chase variant!
