    The greatest thing you can do when it comes to self growth is know when you are wrong and own up to your mistakes, and therefore better yourself as a person! :)

Coverage: Kingdom Hearts Premium Theater event at D23 Expo Japan 2015

To kick off D23 Expo Japan 2015, Disney and Square Enix are hosting a special event called the Kingdom Hearts Premium Theater. This is a private event in Japan, in which we expect some huge news for Kingdom Hearts III! Because we do not expect a livestream of the event, official or otherwise, we will be using this article to provide live updates in addition to articles covering any big announcements that come up. The doors will open at 10:00pm EST (7:00pm PT) and the event begins at 11:00pm EST (8:00pm PT). Make sure to stay tuned here, on KH13.com, and our social media pages for all Kingdom Hearts news from the Kingdom Hearts Premium Theater!

cept it will be released 3 am est

Maybe 5pm (which would be 7pm in Sydney) is when they're going to publicly release official stuff from the event?

Sorry guys, no video allowed, and they are refrained from posting on Social Media until after the second showing. We may get a few updates after the first one from people who just cannot contain themselves.

Ok it's confirmed. No video recording allowed: so no livestream :/
Don't you guys get it?

NOTHING IS ALLOWED!!!!! NO VIDEO, NO PHOTOS, NO TWEETS!!! NOTHING AT ALL!!!

We have to wait until 5pm Japan time...

Well at least we'll still get firsthand impressions. That'll tickle our imaginations for a bit until they finally give us the footage.

I really have a feeling they're going to post it online around hours after the event. They seem to be tinkering with the official sites for Kingdom Hearts 3. 

"No videos allowed."

gettyimages-712-24_h8_optimized.gif?w=32

This is when i start wishing i was japanese..

I'm willing to bet someone will post something after the first showing. It's pretty much impossible to regulate that kind of thing. Videos they can regulate, social media stuff they can not.

Sorry if I seem miss informed, and if I am please do correct me.

 

Please don't tell me that the Kingdom Hearts Premium Theatre is going to be another one of those "only behind doors" situations again. They had a "behind door" situation in 2014 didn't they? And they got a lot negative feedback for it.

 

It's like saying. "Hey, we finally announced KH3, a game that we've been teasing sense the secret ending of KH2 FInal Mix back in 2006. So about 7 years and we finally show our fans a confirmation that the project is being made. What are we going to do next? Only show a room full of people exclusive footage and not show anyone else for a game that most likely won't be out 10 years after KH2. A game that everyone's been glammering for and preying for new information. YES SUCH A GREAT IDEA!"

 

No it's not, you could argue that the game is in early development but we did have the E3 2015 trailer so it's clear that they have no problem of showing the game at this point. Sorry if I come off as a bit rude but the "behind doors" idea shouldn't even be considered. Especially with an over hyped game like Kingdom Hearts 3.

i think frozen was announced, not sure but someone is like doing a code so they won't get copyrighted. they had ana and elsa and thick snow or something.

NO IMPRESSIONS. Hope someone does end up posting right afterwards. The impressions are always off and misleading. Trust is made with actions, not words. 

cept it will be released 3 am est

The contents from the event will be posted soon after!!! :D
And the the dumbest thing about this is that you can't even TALK about the event on Twitter T_T. SE is seriously trying to screw with fans outside of the event :/

OH GOSH DANGIT now I'm gonna have to rely on sketches and junk...

Square Enix is money hungry. As far as they're concerned, if you didn't shell out $3500 to fly to Japan and see the event (granted you won a spot in the ticket sales) then they don't care about you. It sucks that our most favorite game company operates like that, but hey. We'll see it eventually.

However a lot of this may be due to the fact that they don't want to release information because there are two showings. I seriously doubt that after the event EVERY person there is going to keep their mouth shut. Lol. If anything, we'll hear at around 12:30 AM EST what happened at the event. SE may just be cracking down on people who have their phones out right now.

Ok, no video footage is bad enough, but no releasing info until 3 AM!!?? Come on Square, some of us have lives and schedules to keep, and even more importantly sleep schedules!

 

...and a lot of us lack the attention span to do the sensible thing and wait patiently too. T_T"

Well perhaps if we are lucky they will release footage once the second event ends, which would be a lot faster tan it was last D23 Japan (I think it took like 2-3 days before we got the footage)

I want that Dusk and Flood... T3T"""

*Notices the mass amount of Toy Story figures next to the KH figures*

 

shocked-gifs.gif?gs=a

Wow, they gave Mickey a KH mascot outfit too! Sweet, now if we could just have the whole trio walking around Disney parks in those outfits. X3

 

And it looks like they made a Kingdom Key D replica too now! Now there's two real Keyblades in the world! <3

Has there been any news so far, or has it been silent?
