    As more Japanese websites post new articles recapping D23 Japan 2018, more information about Kingdom Hearts III and Kingdom Hearts Union χ[Cross] is revealed. According to ure.pia.co.jp, a video was shown which featured the Japanese voice actors for Sora and Kairi sharing their experience working on the series. Additionally, the site shares new information regarding a major update to Kingdom Hearts Union χ[Cross] coming this spring.

    Miyu Irino (Sora) and Risa Uchida (Kairi) greeted the fans in their video. Irino shares that his favorite world so far to voice Sora in was Toy Story, and he's excited for the final product. Uchida commends her character for being so brave and confronting the darkness, something she admits she might not be able to do herself if put in a similar situation.
    The video ended by assuring the audience that they have greatly enjoyed their experience working on the Kingdom Hearts series, and that relationships between the voice actors and the development team are strong and healthy!

    Concerning Kingdom Hearts Union χ[Cross], the article mentions that a major update will be coming to the game this Spring, including a Player vs. Player feature. Also, a brand new world to the Kingdom Hearts series will appear in the game. This world has not appeared in a Kingdom Hearts game to date and will not be one of the worlds in Kingdom Hearts III - so this world is completely new to the series.

    Lastly, over the past couple of months, Diamond Select Toys have answered fans' questions regarding the future of the Kingdom Hearts DST collection. You can read them below.

    Matthew C.
    For the Kingdom Hearts line, will we be getting Riku, Kairi and Terra? What are the chances of getting a new Axel from DDD?

    DSTChuck
    Right now, we have roughed in the character list for five series of figures, so as long as there is fan support and Disney likes the list, we’re going to at least go well through 2018 with this line. As for who we cover, I can’t say for sure right now.


    Michael A.
    Hey DST! I have been collecting the Marvel Selects for a few years and now i am loving your new Kingdom Hearts line! My question is about those. I know we just got Wave 2 announced, but i wanted to know if you guys had any plans (if even the license) to do the Final Fantasy series characters in their KH appearances? Especially Cloud and Leon. Thanks!

    DSTChuck
    We are keeping information like that close to the vest, as the situation with Disney changes often. BUT as of now, no, we do not have rights to those two characters.


    Jeremiah J.
    Hello, I am a big fan of the DST Kingdom Hearts figures. The announced series 2 lineup sounds great! I note that the Disney characters being released so far are all Mickey centric and from that line of characters (Mickey, Pluto, Donald, Goofy, Pete, Chip/Dale). Will Other Disney characters be made in this line beyond Mickey and his Pals? Disney movie specific characters (like the Maleficent and Jafar that were sculpted and on display at Toyfair)? Thank you!

    DSTChuck
    We are going to do as many of the characters in the game as we are allowed, and as sales supports. Including game-only characters, world-specific versions and Disney on-model looks.

    Jeremiah J.
    Hello, I just saw the Kingdom Hearts Series 2 listing and I couldn’t pre-order fast enough! Upon closer inspection of the figures I had a few questions:
    1) How tall is Pete? Is he going to be a larger figure?
    2) It appears that Pete, Donald and Goofy have no elbow articulation. Are these prototypes? Is articulation being added?
    3) Will Pete’s legs have articulation? Will they be able to move back and forth?
    4) No weapons were shown, but previously it was announced that Donald would have a mage staff, Goofy a shield, Roxas the Oathkeeper keyblade, and Aqua the Rainfell Keyblade, is that still the case?
    A lot of questions, I apologize. Keep up the good work!

    DSTChuck
    1) Pete is pretty big, I would say he is about 7 inches.
    2) They are prototypes, but Goofy will not have elbow articulation.
    3) Yes, Pete’s legs are articulated in production.
    4) The figures will come with some weapons. They’re hard to pose with the prototypes, due to the materials used. Hopefully we will have more flexible production samples we can shoot soon.
    Keep the questions coming — it just means you care about the line!

    UPDATE [Jan 27, 2018]: Twitter user そらるど tweeted out some clarification from cast members of Disney Store Shibuya pertaining to the sale of Kingdom Hearts Tsum Tsums. You can read a translation of the tweet below. Translations are provided by KH13 News Team member NihonScribe.

    "Info from the cast of the Shibuya Disney Store

    -At the D23 Event in terms of selling KH Tsum Tsums, "There are no plans" (current news of the Tsums appearing on the market are false)

    -Within all of Japan there are only 500 with no plans for additional releases

    *It appears to be the same at The Solamachi store. Sorry for the misinformation."


    UPDATE [Jan 28, 2018]: Aitai☆Kuji reportedthat cast members said there will be subsequent sales of the Kingdom Hearts Disney Tsum Tsum. However, it is unknown whether they will be sold individually or in sets. This conflicts with previous reports.
