Fifteen new story quests have been added to the Japanese version of Kingdom Hearts Union χ[cross]! Ten of these new quests mark the first appearance of Enchanted Dominion within the game. This is particularly interesting due to Enchanted Dominion's involvement in the secret ending for the original Kingdom Hearts χ[chi]. You can view an untranslated playthrough of the fifteen new quests below, courtesy of Everglow. A translated version will be available soon.

UPDATE: A translated version of the story update has been made available, courtesy of Everglow! Check it out below!

Posted by Raxaimus on 24 April 2017 - 02:05 AM

This week, players who purchase the Weekly Jewel Extravaganza will be able to partake in the Daily Magic Broom Challenge! Within this challenge, players will earn one Magic Broom medal per day. Five of these can be fused with Fantasia Mickey A to create a Fantasia Mickey B medal (or Mickey and Brooms, if you prefer). Other rewards will also be available.

 

The April Raid Event has also begun! Players can take on the Circus Crab Raid Boss to earn Sora's Party Hat and Funny Glasses from Dream Drop Distance. In addition, today marks the start of the Taurus Lux Rankings! Parties and players who rank highly enough amongst their Union this week will earn the Gold, Silver, and/or Bronze Taurus Crown, as well as the Taurus Chirithy Charm and Magic Gems! Each Union will also earn Jewels based on their Lux ranking at the end of the week (1000, 600, 500, 400, and 300 Jewels, depending on which place a particular Union takes). Try to combine your efforts, so that your contributions in the monthly raid event will heavily boost your party's Lux ranking and bring your Union to the top! Good luck!

#1938466 April XIII Event feat. Vexen B, Returning Avatar Boards, Illus. Kairi Deal (4...

Posted by Raxaimus on 13 April 2017 - 03:09 PM

It's the 13th of the month, and that means that the newest Organization event has begun! Starting on 4/13 at 12:00 AM (PT) and lasting until 4/19 at 11:59 PM (PT), players can take on thirteen quests of increasing difficulty to earn a total of seven Vexen B medals and the Vexen Style avatar part! Vexen B's stats are as follows:

 

Vexen B:

 

Reverse/Magic

Guilt Tier 3

AOE, 1 Gauge Cost, 1.61x - 2.81x damage

Raises Speed and Magic-based DEF by 1 tier for 4 turns. Moderately recovers HP. Inflicts more damage the more turns have passed.

 

As you can see, Vexen B excels in long-term battles, making him especially useful against bosses in Union Cross mode.

 

In other news, the next set of returning Avatar Boards is available! From 4/13 at 12:00 AM (PT) to 4/19 at 11:59 PM (PT), the Nick Wilde, Judy Hopps, KH Yuffie, and KH Cloud Avatar Boards will cost 1500 Jewels each (half of their original cost). Each of these boards comes with many useful medals, making them a great deal for players who missed out!

 

Finally, a special Illustrated Kairi deal has made its way to the shop! From 4/13 at 12:00 AM (PT) to 4/24 at 11:59 PM (PT), this deal will guarantee a copy Illustrated Kairi's KH1 variant within 5 pulls. In addition, the first pull of this deal is half-price, at 1500 Jewels. Many players (and Square Enix themselves) have acknowledged that Illustrated Kairi is a must-have medal, so if you don't have a copy, or you would like a second one to try and unlock the Extra Attack trait, consider saving your Jewels for this deal.

 

NOTE: The Illustrated Kairi deal appeared one day earlier than planned, ahead of its corresponding notice. As such, several players were unaware of the increased cost of the banner after their first pull. Square Enix have apologized and are determining an appropriate solution. However, they are letting the deal remain in the shop as-is, according to the notice. It is unknown what course of action Square Enix will take, or if players who purchased this deal prior to the release of the notice will be compensated.

 

UPDATE: Square Enix have come to a solution regarding the aforementioned deal. Players who purchase the Illustrated Kairi deal at least once before 12:00 AM (PT) on 4/14 will be refunded 1500 Jewels (effectively making their first pull free), and all players will be given 300 Jewels.

#1938260 First Union Cross Event, Stroke of Midnight Adamantite Quests (4/12)

Posted by Raxaimus on 12 April 2017 - 01:57 PM

As the game's notice aptly says, "The true Union Cross starts here!". It's time for the first Union Cross multiplayer event! From April 12th at 12 AM (PT) to April 27th at 11:59 PM (PT), players can fight alongside their party and Union members in order to take down the fearsome Iron Giant! The Cross Coins earned from these quests can be spent on a total of eight Cross Boards spread along three different Cross Board paths. Spending these Cross Coins will reward players with Moogle-themed avatar parts, Magic Mirror medals, and other valuable items!

 

In other news, following the recent addition of the Castle of Dreams world and the Stroke of Midnight Keyblade, players can now earn a total of 11 Adamantite Ore in the corresponding daily quests, enough to level up a single Keyblade from +20 to +25. These quests will be available every Wednesday, alongside the Three Wishes Adamantite Quests. Good luck!

Can't wait for the 5th Union Leader to be Olette lol (half joking/half serious).

#1937340 June 11 KH 3pm Concert

Posted by Raxaimus on 05 April 2017 - 08:19 PM

A few of our staff, including myself, are also going to the various LA concerts. I'm personally going to the ones on June 10th and 11th. We may organize another KH13 meet-up near the venue, just like we did in London, but with the concert being spread across four dates, it's definitely frustrating to figure out who will be there, and when. We will keep everyone updated, regardless!




#1937247 Review: Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 ReMIX

Posted by Raxaimus on 05 April 2017 - 04:46 AM

The Kingdom Hearts series recently celebrated its 15th anniversary with a bang, as renowned RPG developer Square Enix has paved the way to the series' long-awaited climax with a massive compilation. Released for Sony's PlayStation 4, Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 ReMIX offers some of the best experiences that Kingdom Hearts has presented to date, and consists of the first six works in the series. For the uninitiated, these six titles are:
  • Kingdom Hearts Final Mix, an enhanced re-release of the original game
  • Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories, a console-oriented overhaul of the Game Boy Advance interquel
  • HD cutscenes of Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days, the series' first Nintendo DS outing
  • Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix, an enhanced re-release of the second numbered entry
  • Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep Final Mix, an enhanced re-release of the series' prequel
  • HD cutscenes of Kingdom Hearts Re:coded, the series' second Nintendo DS outing
Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 ReMIX presents something for every fan to enjoy. Whether you are a newcomer who has decided to jump into the series, a seasoned veteran who has been an avid follower since 2002, or anywhere in between, this collection is sure to contain something of interest to you.

When considering the perspective of newcomers, it's no secret that Kingdom Hearts has historically had a reputation for having a confusing plot, due in large part to having its titles spread thin across many platforms. However, in recent years, series director Tetsuya Nomura expressed his desire to remedy this stigma by releasing every Kingdom Hearts title on a single platform. Through both this collection and the recently-released Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue, Nomura's wishes have been fulfilled; nearly every game in the series is available on the PlayStation 4, with the upcoming Kingdom Hearts III set to continue this trend.

As seen above, the newest iteration of the Kingdom Hearts timeline features only four overall releases. The two aforementioned collections and Kingdom Hearts III all have a simple, numerically-ascending order which highlights the intended play order. Meanwhile, while the series' mobile installment, Kingdom Hearts Union χ[cross], is presented as being first in the timeline, it is meant to be played late into the series, as it relies heavily on knowledge learned throughout most of the other games. In summary, with just a PlayStation 4 and a smartphone or tablet, the entirety of the Kingdom Hearts series can be easily understood and enjoyed by newer fans!
For returning Kingdom Hearts diehards, Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 ReMIX unfortunately offers little in the way of completely new experiences. While the Final Mix-exclusive additions and revamped HD cutscenes are carried over from the PlayStation 3 releases of Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX and Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX, there is no sign of any additional content which is exclusive to this PlayStation 4 release. Instead, much of the incentive for veterans to purchase this compilation comes in the form of technical improvements.

Kingdom Hearts speedrunner Bizkit047 outlines both the technical improvements and problems within Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 ReMIX.

In the PlayStation 3 releases, load times were unusually long, and the included games all ran at 720p and 30 frames per second. In the PlayStation 4 version, by contrast, the load times have all but vanished, the resolution has been increased to 1080p, and the playable titles run at 60 frames per second, resulting in a clearer and more fluid image. The option to play at 4k resolution is even available to PlayStation 4 Pro owners, further increasing the collection's visual quality. Unfortunately, the framerate increase does not apply to any of the cutscenes present in the collection; this is only applicable to gameplay, as the cutscenes are strictly programmed to run at 30 frames per second.

While these improvements have been widely praised by players, the games are not without their own problems. Several players, including prominent speedrunners Bl00dyBizkitz and Bizkit047, have pointed out several glaring issues with the PlayStation 4 versions of each game. Several crashes and bugs which were present in the PlayStation 3 releases have been carried over, some new crashes have been reported, and the transition to 60 frames per second has introduced several inconsistencies regarding game physics and timings. Thankfully, Square Enix has already begun to roll out updates and patches to lessen or eliminate many of the offending issues.

Overall, while Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 ReMIX is by no means a perfect product, and still has a great deal of technical hurdles to overcome, the collection provides an excellent starting point for new players, a large amount of nostalgia for returning players, and a great deal of improvement under-the-hood for those who seek a good-looking, smooth experience. If you've hesitated at the thought of playing the series, or simply want to experience the games in higher detail than ever before, Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 ReMIX will not disappoint.

Posted by Raxaimus on 02 April 2017 - 07:20 PM

Wait, the only thing I got was the Fantasia Mickey B Medal, but I don't have any Sora And Roxas medals or any of the other things mentioned, Raxaimus! Why is this? I did register for Union X, after all!

 

Unless we'll get all of these other rewards when we get the Union X update? :O

 

Correct. The rewards will be given when Union X goes live.




#1935487 Maleficent B, Daily Challenge Quests, VIP Upgrade Quests, zero AP (3/27)

Posted by Raxaimus on 27 March 2017 - 12:14 PM

A new event starts on March 27th, 2017 at 12 AM (PT)! Players can earn copies of the Maleficent B medal, as well as Chip and Dale medals, by completing the various objectives for the 15 available quests. In the 15th and final quest, the target enemy has a chance to drop a boosted Maleficent B medal, which has 1000 more attack power than the normal version!

 

For an entire week, starting on March 27th, 2017 at 12 AM (PT), players will be able to access Daily Challenge Quests. These quests will reward players with jewels, Chip and Dale medals, and other highly-valued items! A total of 1400 jewels will be available throughout the week, so be sure not to miss out!

 

In addition to the challenge quests, VIP upgrade quests are also available during the whole week! These quests will allow players to strengthen their medals by collecting EXP, evolve, and munny medals, as well as leveling up their skills. However, these quests are only available to players who purchase the Weekly Jewels Extravaganza, so if you are planning to take advantage of this deal, do so as soon as possible!

 

Finally, to celebrate the release of Kingdom Hearts HD I.5 + II.5 ReMIX, a zero AP campaign will be running. This campaign lasts until April 2nd at 11:59 PM (PT), so be sure to use it to its fullest, especially if you plan to utilize the VIP quests!
