  2. New Kingdom Hearts III image shown at MAGIC 2017

    At the Monaco Anime Game International Conference (MAGIC), Kingdom Hearts series director Tetsuya Nomura held a presentation on his career. This presentation included a brief mention of Kingdom Hearts III, with a new screenshot being shown. (via @TheSharePlayers)

    KH3 Magic Screenshot 1

    In this screenshot, we can see Sora in Olympus Colosseum using Guard Form with a new shield-based transformation for an unrevealed Keyblade. He also appears to be battling a new type of Heartless. Additionally, one of the command menu slots displays the word "Link", possibly as part of this new transformation. Finally, the wording for the yellow gauge near Sora's health has been changed from "EX" (as seen in the Jump Festa 2015 trailer) to "Focus", matching the format seen in Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth by Sleep -A Fragmentary Passage-.

    A close-up shot of Guard Form can be seen below, thanks to @RedMakuzawa.

    Unfortunately, no new trailer is confirmed at the moment according to @RedMakuzawa. Only the screenshot was shown at the presentation.

    UPDATE 1: A higher quality, direct feed image of the screenshot can now be seen thanks to the official Kingdom Hearts twitter account.

    KH3 Magic Screenshot 3

    UPDATE 2:

    According to Gameblog.fr, Nomura stated the screenshot takes place in the city of Thebes. The Keyblade has the ability to change into a lot of things, some of which are the aforementioned shield and a chariot. He also clarified that the new form in the screenshot is the Power Form, which contradicts the information that we received last time about Power Form. We'll bring clarification as soon as we get it.

    UPDATE 3: The quote from Tetsuya Nomura regarding Power Form has been translated and clarified thanks to Dandelion from KHInsider.

    This is the first time we're showing this screenshot of Kingdom Hearts III, it's happening in Thebes and they are fighting a new type of Heartless. The Keyblade can transform into a lot of things. When in Power Form it can be changed into a chariot.

  6. Kingdom Hearts TV show pitch put forward by drawer Seth Kearsley

    Less than a few hours ago, Seth Kearsley had stated in a post on his Twitter feed that he had exchanged emails and opened up a dialog that would allow him to pitch a do-over regarding a Kingdom Hearts animated television series.

    Emails have been exchanged. Dialog has at least been started. Pitching a do-over with the current skill set. #kingdomhearts

    No further details have been stated, though this is not the first time this particular animated Kingdom Hearts TV show had been proposed. For those who are unaware, Seth Kearsley had been approached shortly after Kingdom Hearts was released about creating an animated television series based off of it and this is a revival of that very same project, though whether or not it will have the same worlds, the same style or even the same game is uncertain.

    UPDATE: According to Seth Kearsley's latest tweets, he is still not sure if Disney will allow this project or not, but the talks for it have already begun. He also mentioned that the project would be an anime developed by Mir Studios with the Disney characters in cartoon style and developed by an external studio and it would take place in an alternate timeline from the games, but following the overall plot from them. This project would be aired after Kingdom Hearts III releases, according to Seth Kearsley's answer on Twitter. Keep in mind, however, that these are just Seth's thoughts and expectations about the project; nothing has currently been set in stone.

    What do you think about all of this? Are you excited about the prospect of a Kingdom Hearts animated series? Let us know in the comments below!

  15. Movie to be displayed during the first Kingdom Hearts World Tour Concert in Japan

    During last month's Dengeki PlayStation interview with Kingdom Hearts series composer Yoko Shimomura, she was asked about the first concert of the Kingdom Hearts World Tour-taking place in Tokyo, Japan on March 10th in the Tokyo International Forum Hall. You can view the full interview here thanks to @goldpanner's translations!

    One interesting piece of information to come out of this interview was when she stated there would be a movie displayed in the hall, supervised by series director Tetsuya Nomura.

    —Was Mr. Nomura also involved in choosing the music?
    Shimoura: I chose the music and created a setlist, which Mr. Tetsu checked for me, and then I'd listen to his requests and give my own opinions. That's the general flow of how we decided things. Since Mr. Tetsu and I both chose music with the same line of thinking—that we wanted to make our fans happy—I am confident in the setlist I have for you all. By the way, Mr. Tetsu had said he wanted the wind orchestra and the orchestra concert to have a "two in one" configuration. Mr. Tetsu is also the supervisor of the movie that is going to play in the hall, so please look forward to that.

    What do you think this movie could be? Are you attending this concert or any of the other concerts? Let us know in the comments!

  17. Seth Kearsley is exploring the possibility of releasing the pilot animatic of the cancelled Kingdom Hearts cartoon

    Former director and writer of the cancelled Kingdom Hearts cartoon, Seth Kearlsey, has stated that he is attempting to gain legal permission to reveal the pilot animatic. You can view his tweets below.

    Tweet 1 Tweet 2

    In addition, Seth was interviewed on February 2nd and during the 1:15:24 mark he begins to discuss the cancelled cartoon of Kingdom Hearts.

    Originally Seth pitched the concept of an animated show (not specifically Kingdom Hearts) rather than making a movie due to it having a longer shelf life and a better opportunity for marketing. Seth's agent suggested Kingdom Hearts as it would mix both American cartoons and Japanese anime together. After completing the original Kingdom Hearts in a week he read the pilot for an Aladdin episode, Seth disliked this idea as Aladdin was already it's own animated TV show. Moreover, Seth took inspiration from the popular anime Cowboy Bebop due it airing on Cartoon Network at the same time he was writing the script for the Kingdom Hearts cartoon.

    Around the 1:24:00 mark Seth discusses his attempt to gain legal permissions for the release of the pilot animatic. You can hear the full interview below.
