Don't Think Twice/Chikai has really grown on me

Today, 01:01 AM

When I first heard Don't Think Twice (called "Chikai" in Japanese) I was sort of on the fence about it. I got super emotional and teared up listening to it the first time because it's the KH3 Utada theme, but at the same time, I was sort of somewhat disappointed when I compared it to Simple And Clean and Sanctuary. But, after listening to it more and more, the more it grows on me. I absolutely love it now. It's a really beautiful song and it really sort of encompasses my feelings towards this series. I can understand why some people think it might be "meh," since I used to have somewhat of that mindset, but I love it now. It's grown on me so much.

I can just imagine hearing it as the credits roll for KH3 after a super emotional ending and super emotional game experience as a whole.


Kingdom Hearts III Sora (Second Form) Bring Arts figure releasing May 30, 2018 for...

20 January 2018 - 06:17 PM

Back in September 2017, it was announced that there will be a new Kingdom Hearts Bring Arts figure of Sora in his new Second Form from Kingdom Hearts III that will be releasing in 2018. This new Drive Form of Sora's was first shown off in the Kingdom Hearts III - Orchestra Trailer. Second Form is tied to the Kingdom Key Keyblade and gives Sora's outfit the same colors as his Kingdom Hearts II outfit, and allows Sora to use abilities from Kingdom Hearts II and the first Kingdom Hearts, similar to how Limit Form worked in Kingdom Hearts II. So, the figure will also come with the Kingdom Key Keyblade.

Now, it has been revealed by Previews World that the Sora (Second Form) Bring Arts figure will be releasing May 30, 2018, and will be available to purchase for $59.99 USD. You can find out if you can pre-order it from your local comic shop here.

The product description for the Kingdom Hearts III Sora (Second Form) Bring Arts figure, provided by Previews World, can be seen below:

From Square Enix. A PREVIEWS Exclusive! This action figure of Sora, the protagonist of KINGDOM HEARTS III, has been re-created with great detail even though it stands at only six inches tall. This easy-to-carry figure is so compact it fits right in the palm of your hands! With a wide range of motion in the articulated joints, you can recreate action poses and scenes from the game. Sora's Keyblade, which comes in two separate forms, as well as plenty of other interchangeable hands and face parts are included with the figure to make him even more fun to pose. Paintwork that faithfully recreates the in-game CG, such as the crisp contrast of colors, creates a small but impressive figure. Figure includes display stand.

This is following the recent news that the Sora (Second Form) Bring Arts figure will be available to purchase at D23 Expo Japan 2018. The figure will cost ¥6,264 (approx. $56.69 USD), tax included. D23 Expo Japan 2018 will take place from February 10th - 12th, 2018. This figure is also a part of the D23 pre-order lottery, where it's available with only 2,000 copies. You can find out more about the figure being sold at D23 Expo Japan 2018 and the D23 pre-order lottery in the article here.

Kingdom Hearts series director Tetsuya Nomura has previously stated that "Second Form" is only a tentative name for the time being so this new Drive Form will possibly get a name change in the future.

What do you guys think about this figure? Will you be buying it as a companion to your Play Arts Kai figure of Kingdom Hearts III Sora, the upcoming Bring Arts figure of Sora's Kingdom Hearts III Guardian Form, or the upcoming Bring Arts figures of Sora, Donald, and Goofy from the Toy Story world in Kingdom Hearts III?

Thanks to KH13 staff member Mio-chan for the translations!

These watches are similar to the Kingdom Hearts watch by K.uno that released on October 28, 2017 on ZOZOTOWN Rendez-Vous as a part of the retailer's Disney Lifestyle Collection. The main differences between them is that the crown symbol on the previous watch was black rather than the golden color it is on the recent two watches, as well as the D23 logo on the recent watches. You can find out more about the first watch here.

The Kingdom Hearts III Sora (Second Form) Bring Arts figure will be available to purchase at D23 Expo Japan 2018 as well, and it's also a part of the D23 pre-order lottery with only 2,000 copies available. Check out more about that in the article here.

How to experience the whole Kingdom Hearts series in its entirety and in the best possible way:
-If you want to experience the whole Kingdom Hearts series in its entirety and in the best possible way, then you need to play all of the titles mentioned in the "All Kingdom Hearts titles (only including the most recent versions/remakes/remasters of each title)" sections. To get the best and most rewarding experience that doesn't spoil plot twists and revelations, then you need to play all of those titles in release order. Except play Kingdom Hearts Re:coded after Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep Final Mix. If you've already played most of the games and want to go for a second round and want a new way of experiencing the series, then you would play all of those titles in chronological order.

In order to get all of these titles in their best versions possible, then all you need to get are these titles:

  • Kingdom Hearts HD I.5 + II.5 ReMIX
  • Kingdom Hearts HD II.8 Final Chapter Prologue
  • Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days
  • Kingdom Hearts Re:coded
  • Kingdom Hearts χ[chi]
  • Kingdom Hearts Union χ[Cross]
  • Kingdom Hearts III

Explanations:
-Kingdom Hearts HD I.5 + II.5 ReMIX is a collection of Kingdom Hearts titles that includes an HD remaster of Kingdom Hearts Final Mix, a movie made out of HD remastered cutscenes from Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days, an HD remaster of Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories, an HD remaster of Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix, an HD remaster of Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep Final Mix, and a movie made out of HD remastered cutscenes from Kingdom Hearts Re:coded. It's for the PlayStation 4.
-As it was just stated, Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days and Kingdom Hearts Re:coded are included in Kingdom Hearts HD I.5 + II.5 ReMIXBut, they are only cutscene movies. To experience those titles in the best possible way, you need to play the original games on the Nintendo DS, as well as watch the cutscene movies.
-Kingdom Hearts HD II.8 Final Chapter Prologue is a collection of Kingdom Hearts titles that includes Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance HDKingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth by Sleep -A fragmentary passage-, and Kingdom Hearts χ Back Cover. It's for the PlayStation 4.
-Kingdom Hearts χ[chi] was a Japanese-only browser game that is now discontinued. So, in order to experience this title, you can watch all of the story-related cutscenes translated to English in the YouTube playlist here. You can also watch a full English translated playthrough in the YouTube playlist here.
-Kingdom Hearts Union χ[Cross] is essentially a rebranding of Kingdom Hearts Unchained χ. You don't have to get Kingdom Hearts Unchained χ, because by getting Kingdom Hearts Union χ[Cross], you are getting Kingdom Hearts Unchained χ, since it's a part of the title. They renamed the app to "Kingdom Hearts Union χ[Cross]" to help promote the "season two" of the game, which is titled "Kingdom Hearts Union χ[Cross]."
-Kingdom Hearts III is the name of an upcoming game for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. It will be the end of the Dark Seeker Saga, which all other games listed here are a part of as well.

Notes:
-For those who might be confused, yes, Kingdom Hearts χ[chi]Kingdom Hearts Unchained χKingdom Hearts χ Back Cover, and Kingdom Hearts Union χ[Cross] are all different titles. They are not remakes or remasters of each other. Kingdom Hearts Unchained χ is a sequel to Kingdom Hearts χ[chi]Kingdom Hearts Union χ[Cross] is a rebranding of Kingdom Hearts Unchained χ, as well as the name of the "season two" of the game. Kingdom Hearts χ Back Cover is a movie that tells some of the story of Kingdom Hearts χ[chi], but through the perspective of different characters. These things makes all of these separate Kingdom Hearts titles.
-I only explained how you experience the Kingdom Hearts series in the it's fullest and the best possible way, which assumes that the person interested in doing so has a PlayStation 4, a Nintendo DS, an iOS or Android smartphone, and a way to watch YouTube videos. I did this because you simply can't experience the Kingdom Hearts series in it's fullest and the best possible way without these things. But, if you don't have a few of these things, then I made sure to provide enough information for the reader to be able to figure out what they're able to get in order to experience the Kingdom Hearts series in the best way that they're personally able to do.
-For those wondering, I put Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth by Sleep -A fragmentary passage- after Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distancechronologically because the majority of the game is technically a flashback. The parts that aren't a flashback take place after Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance.
-If any of this confuses you, I'll be happy to help and explain anything further in the comments.
-Kingdom Hearts III might not be the 13th Kingdom Hearts game, but it's the 13th Kingdom Hearts title. Nice job Nomura. This makes me think that one of the sole reasons for rebranding Kingdom Hearts Unchained χ to Kingdom Hearts Union χ[Cross] was to make this happen lol

Non-canon spin-off Kingdom Hearts titles in release order:

  • Kingdom Hearts V CAST
  • Kingdom Hearts Mobile
  • Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days Magical Puzzle Clash
  • Kingdom Hearts Re:coded Gummiship Studio

Explanations:
-Kingdom Hearts V CAST is a game for V Cast (Verizon Wireless's broadband service).
