18 January 2018 - 06:28 PM

The smartphone title Kingdom Hearts Union χ[Cross] has been announced to be released in Taiwan on January 25, 2018 with an exclusive dedicated server. This announcement comes right after many advertisements were shown for the game in Ximending in Taipei, Taiwan earlier this month, which you can take a look at the gallery below thanks to Twitter user @yura_zatta.

These advertisements also show a never before seen Kingdom Hearts Union χ[Cross]-styled character model for Sephiroth, which seems to be hinting at his possible future appearance in the game.

Promotional advertisements for the title will continue to be up in Taipei until the end of the month.

An announcement also revealed that the first to visit the dedicated booth D710 and download Kingdom Hearts Union χ[Cross] at the Taipei Game Show 2018, taking place between January 26-29, 2018, will receive an appropriately themed bag to celebrate the game's release. You can take a look at the bag's design below:

It can receive radio channels, and tell accurately time.

More assets for Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth by Sleep -A fragmentary passage- discovered; i...

01 January 2018 - 08:20 PM

In December 2017, Twitter users @Keytotruth, 13th Vessel, and @Xeeynamo uncovered many of the game files from Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth By Sleep -A fragmentary passage- through hacking. 13th Vessel has now reported that they have uncovered "almost every model," including untextured character models for Riku in his Kingdom Hearts original outfit, Donald, Ansem the Wise and Terra; he has also found Riku's and Mickey's suitcases model. He has also found the files for Ventus and shirtless Mickey and many more, but there are no images available for those yet. In the mean time, you can view all of the assets available in the gallery below:

DQxRqnbUEAAQSCoDQxTw3mUMAAnjUDQyQBpoUQAALUmaDQyVDt2UMAAdPsrDQyWAo0VQAAVKmwDQxQl bVwAAyn6QDQyHhKcUEAEUHCFDQxZiJyUEAAY QODQx0oJbV4AE5rNGDQxZYmSVAAEi Yp12DSfTHuUWAAcFETgDSfugKnX0AA4UD5DSfUZp3W0AAarYyDSfVIjUWsAIKYdBDSfYv6XWkAAytcvDSgvxb3W4AA L4sDSiGq4mXcAAlPYlDSiGsRHWkAAcbmtDSfuiNEX4AE8Q6P11

UPDATE [Jan 2, 2018]: 13th Vessel has uncovered the untextured character model for Terra-Xehanort's Guardian, which you can view in the gallery above. He's also found Kingdom Key, Kingdom Key D, Donald's weapon, and effects for the previously reported on Water magic, which were not viewable. Some maps and textures of models are still there even after having been deleted. For example, in the NPC folder, 13th Vessel found some folders for Daybreak Town, but they only had textures of scrapped models in them. (Note that there he didn't find any maps for Daybreak Town.)

The next step would be to find a way of seeing these textures to identify them, but 13th Vessel says that that's a very complicated task. He states that because of this, there could be many things that are scrapped that we are not able to view.

UPDATE [Jan 2, 2018]: 13th Vessel has uploaded the soundtrack's file names from Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth By Sleep -A fragmentary passage- that he pulled from the game's assets. This list does not contain the game's opening song, "Simple and Clean (Ray of Hope Mix)."

You can see the list below:

1

The list comprises the following tracks, which can be heard throughout the game:
  • Always on My Mind
  • Dearly Beloved -Reprise-
  • Destiny's Force
  • Devil's Wave [1]
  • Devil's Wave [2]
  • Dive into the Heart -Destati-
  • Illusion Aqua
  • Hand in Hand
  • Bond*
  • Light and Dark**
  • Miracle
  • Missing You
  • Magical Mystery
  • Aqua
  • Sora
  • Terra
  • Ven
  • Dearly Beloved
  • Title launch***
  • Dark World battle theme
  • Dark World boss theme
  • Dark World field theme
  • Dark World field theme (Sleeping Beauty)
  • Dark World field theme (Snow White)
*This could be referring to the track "Destiny's Union" that plays when Terra is talking to Aqua.
**This could be referring to the track "The Key" that plays when King Mickey finds the Kingdom Key D and when he is ready to seal the door to Kingdom Hearts.
***This could be the brief music that plays when the player starts a new game.

Translations were provided by KH13 staff member Mio-chan.

13th Vessel commented that he was not able to view the soundtrack from Kingdom Hearts χ Back Cover as it is a movie, not a game.

UPDATE [Jan 5, 2018]: We had another chance to speak to 13th Vessel about the NPC folders and the textures (with no models) found in them, and he explained to us, in detail, that some of the characters' models are found in folders whose names are identifiable with the code of the area those characters are seen during the game.

For instance, the untextured models for Yen Sid, Riku, Riku's and Mickey's suitcases, and Kairi, were found in folders with the code "yt" - for Yen Sid's Tower. Similarly, the models for Aqua and Terranort were found in Dark World ("dw") folders; and the models for Luxu and the box he carries, as seen in the Keyblade Graveyard, were appropriately found in a Daybreak Town ("db") folder.

UPDATE [Jan 6, 2018]: Keytotruth has uploaded an image of the model of the Gummi Ship found in the files of Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth By Sleep -A fragmentary passage-.

You can see the picture below. Note that the colors were added to the render.

Back in October, 13th Vessel uploaded a couple of videos on the Destiny Islands area in Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth by Sleep -A fragmentary passage- using hacks and mods. You can check out more about that in the article here. What do you guys think about these assets? What else do you think we will find? Let us know in the comments below.
