OMG! I'm still in school right now and I can't be bothered to do my homework!!!!! D:
Hello young people of Kingdom Hearts Thirteen. I realized I have been on this site for almost 7 years and I'm no longer with the times. What are the kids discussing these days?
Wow...I can't believe that it's been 10 years since KH13's inception! To think this site has lasted for so long! Here's to many more years of awesomeness! God, I love this site so much! <3
Series director, Tetsuya Nomura, releases new artwork to celebrate Kingdom Hearts' 15th anniversary
Interesting notes and observations:
Comparing with previous images with Sora sitting on a throne, for the first time he is sitting with a different attire than from his original Kingdom Hearts one (this time it’s his Kingdom Hearts III outfit). His right leg is crossed over his left, just like in the Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX one. The crown is also rather different than in the previous instances, reminiscing an actual king’s.
Now let's check the hidden details from the artwork. You can notice all the blurry effects added to the image and the intentional placement of the anniversary date and number to hide what looks to be 3 paintings and another element:
· In the first painting (upper left corner), you see a mysterious figure smiling mischievously. Does this look familiar to you?
· Next, in the upper right corner, we have the most difficult painting to decipher.
· Then, in the third painting, we have this:
It has the clearest element from all three paintings: a musical note. Maybe just a tiny Easter Egg for the Kingdom Hearts Orchestra - World Tour - that we have been experiencing as a 15th Anniversary celebration?
· Finally, we can see Sora is holding an animal on his lap, one that resembles a canid. As an interesting note, next year is the Year of the Dog in the Chinese calendar.
Feel free to leave your speculation and other observations about what all this could mean in the comment section below!
