They some comments about Kingdom Hearts III as well as the future of Kingdom Hearts Union χ[Cross].

A variety of art was also showcased at the event including original artwork drawn by Nomura, and exclusive merchandise, including previously event-exclusive merchandise, has been made available for purchase for the duration of the campaign.

    - The staff said that the release of the Kingdom Key prop replica should be asked to Bandai, as they are the ones who Disney handed the rights to.

    kggm Kh Key necklace


    Take a look at the product description of the necklace below:

    Beautiful. Powerful. Flowerful.

    Based on Kairi's colorful Keyblade
    Made of metal and enamel, with a dangly paopu fruit Keychain!
    19" chain has a 4" extender for a total length of 23"
    Keyblades are one of the most memorable parts of the Kingdom Hearts game franchise. They're keys! They're blades! They can defeat the Heartless, and seal or unlock paths between worlds! They even have adorable dangly Keychain attachments. But even amongst the vast array of keyblades, the Destiny's Embrace is something special.

    Kairi's weapon is a thing of beauty, with a cresting wave at the handle, a golden vine wrapping around the shaft, and flowers forming the teeth at the end. And for the Keychain? A paopu fruit! Legend has it that if two people share a paopu fruit, their destinies become intertwined. We're not sure what the legends say about smashing some Heartless with a Keyblade that has one hanging from it, but we're sure it's something good. This adorable little recreation of the Destiny's Embrace comes on a chain so you can wear it daily - if your heart is strong enough to wield it!

    For our customers with nickel allergies: This item may contain nickel.

  4. 9 years of KH13.com in the Kingdom Hearts community

    Today marks the 9th birthday of KH13.com! We are publishing this special feature to celebrate almost a decade of the impact KH13.com has had in the Kingdom Hearts community since its creation on October 9, 2008! KH13.com is now one of the best Kingdom Hearts fansites for news and media.

    KH13.com originally started in 2008 by KH13 Webmaster DChiuch, with the help of Co-Webmaster Aaron. The website started out as a simple project between friends, however, soon became a full-fledged website for Kingdom Hearts news, media and discussion. At the time, high quality videos and media were hard to come by, so KH13 initially established itself by providing high quality trailer and cutscene downloads.

    The name "KH13" was eventually settled on in a brainstorming session, after it was discovered that KH1.com through KH12.com were all taken – it seemed fitting that the first available domain would match up with Organization XIII. Around this time, KH13.com began to report Kingdom Hearts news, with the first article on Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days.

    In January, 2009, KH13 decided to do the first major redesign, which was then released on January 14th, 2009. You can check out the design below.

    Posted Image


    (Does this bring back any memories?)

    Since then we have updated the website designs a couple of times; the current design is the 3rd update!

    Skipping ahead to 2011, KH13 had become more well known, allowing us to start sending representatives to E3 as part of the press. sqexgal (now from SQEX.INFO) was our first representative, and former KH13 News Team member Oishii, Kingdom Hearts community veteran Churro, KH13 staff member (and former News Team Leader) Toominator, and Kingdom Hearts χ Team and News Team member Raxaimus have all been part of the experience since.

    One important feature that has been prominent throughout KH13 is our gallery & video archives. Former KH13 Archives Team Leader and News Team member Sora96 has brought the video archives and gallery to what it is today, featuring over 29,000 images and hundreds of videos from the Kingdom Hearts series. Thanks also goes to Everglow, our partner, for recording thousands of cutscenes and playthrough videos for KH13's archives. Our wide selection of videos and images has brought in many visitors for KH13.

    This past year has saw much excitement in the Kingdom Hearts Community. In November of 2016, the opening cinematics of Kingdom Hearts 0.2 -A fragmentary passage- was revealed at Paris Game Week. In January 2017, Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue was released in Japan on the 12th and worldwide on the 24th. In March, the first performance of the Kingdom Hearts Orchestra - World Tour - began in Tokyo, Japan.

    The tour had many stops around the world, which included London, Singapore, Los Angeles, and New York. During the tour, KH13 held three successful fan meetups. Social Media Team Leader Andrew Hankinson and News Team Leader Aquaberry hosted the first #KH13MeetUp in London in March 2017. The second one in Los Angeles was hosted by the dedicated Raxaimus. The third one was in New York, hosted by Toominator and Kingdom Hearts χ Team member Exilra. We gave out exclusive KH13 stickers to the lucky attendees, and had a card in each location for Yoko Shimomura, which fans at the meetup decorated with heartfelt thank you messages for the series composer.

    We've made a montage for of each meetup with the help of our team members and Project Destati. You can watch them below!




    In June 2017, during the World Tour concerts in Los Angeles, Tetsuya Nomura made a guest appearance where he revealed a new Kingdom Hearts III trailer. This trailer included gameplay of Olympus Coliseum and a cutscene from Twilight Town. At the end of the trailer, an announcement of an extended trailer was shown, giving the date of its release as July 15, 2017, at the D23 Expo in Anaheim, California.

    As promised, this new extended Kingdom Hearts III trailer was revealed during the Level Up! segment of D23. This trailer revealed a new KH3 world: the world of Toy Story. The trailer showed off some gameplay along with a long cutscene of Sora, Donald, and Goofy meeting Woody, Buzz, and a few other toys in Andy’s room. At the end of the trailer was the most awaited news by the Kingdom Hearts community for more than a decade: a release year for Kingdom Hearts III, set for 2018!

    All throughout this time, there have been exciting developments in KHUχ; in March 2017, the update from Kingdom Hearts Unchained χ to Kingdom Hearts Union χ was announced. The story has developed greatly to include a new (and old?) set of characters and plot twists that are but making players and non-players alike excited for how they will play out in the upcoming Kingdom Hearts III! For the sake of avoiding spoilers, we won't say any more, but you can check out the videos of KHUχ gameplay and story updates on Everglow's channel, the most recent being the product of hard work of KH13 translators Mio-chan and Lady Aleister.

    The KH13.com community has also been growing on social media. Our Twitter (@KH13.com) has almost 25,000 followers. Our Facebook page (KH13.com, for Kingdom Hearts) has hit the 20,000 likes mark. We also have a new Playstation community page!

    As we enter our 9th year, we would like to thank our current leaders of our various teams, which includes Aquaberry, WakelessDream, faemarch, and Andrew Hankinson; our vice leaders Leamax, Exilra and Wan_Pisu; and our LoL (Leader of Leaders): HarLea Quinn. We would also like to thank Toominator, Jake, and the current and past members of our various teams for their contributions to the page.

    We'd like to also give the most important thanks of all to you, our readers, and the Kingdom Hearts community. Thanks to everyone here on KH13 for sticking with us for these 9 years. We hope to be around for many more, and to continue to provide the latest Kingdom Hearts news and media!

    What has your favorite moment been in the KH13 community in the past 9 years? Let us know in the comments below!

  22. 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.
