    Just read the article about the SkyTree Tower event in Tokyo. I am blown away with all of the PR for Kingdom Hearts 3. I have never seen such a PR push for a title probably since FFXV.

A live Q&A recently took place during Square Enix Presents at the Tokyo Game Show 2018 between Nomura and the Japanese voice actors of both Sora (Miyu Irino) and Aqua (Megumi Toyoguchi) with host Akira Kawashima.

Nomura answered several questions including if this instalment of the series will be the last, if online play was a possibility, if Kingdom Hearts III will have a secret movie and more. Miyu Irino also answered a question about the difficulties of voicing both Sora and Vanitas.

You can read the entire Q&A below, translated thanks to Audrey on twitter:

MC: Nomura-San; like Aqua has turned to darkness, yeah?

Nomura: Yeah it’s really too bad she fell to the darkness. I can’t tell much more otherwise it’ll be a spoiler but yeah, it’s quite unfortunate.

Irino: I was asked if this was the end of Kingdom Hearts, what is the verdict, Nomura-San?

Nomura: This is not the end of Kingdom Hearts, just the Dark Seeker arc. Sora’s story will continue after this, but first, Kingdom Hearts III!

MC: Terra, Aqua, and Ventus as well as Xehanort- we want to know their ages.

Nomura: We didn’t really have set ages. Terra is around 20, Aqua is about 18, Ventus is 16, and Xehanort is uh...Young Xehanort is 18-20, Master Xehanort is like 80 or something.

MC: Was it difficult to voice both Sora and Vanitas?

Irino: At first it was hard to voice Sora in the beginning, but I was able to get used to voicing him over the years. For Vanitas, it wasn’t that bad but just having another mindset. My voice kind of changed as I aged, so I had to adjust my voice to fit the characters.

MC: Will there be an online game play option, Nomura?

Nomura: We haven’t included it in Kingdom Hearts III, but the idea was talked about during production. We just want to finish Kingdom Hearts III first, then we’ll think about other options.

MC: Will there be a KH3 secret movie?

Nomura: Yes, yes there will be. I don’t want to say spoilers, but it’ll be kind of a different type of presentation, such as a DLC with a secret movie or something...maybe.

During the Main Stage Event featuring Miyu Irino and Megumi Toyoguchi, there was new footage of the game being shown extended footage from the E3 2018 and TGS2018 trailers.

It featured Sora fighting heartless in Caribbean, Toy Box, Arendelle, and Monstropolis with never before seen gameplay, including a finisher for the Blizzard Blades keyblade transformation. A new gameplay scene using the Merry-Go-Round attraction flow during a boss fight with the Ice Titan and Lava Titan was also shown as well as an extended clip of the boss fight with Marshmallow.
Finally, an extended clip of Aqua and Sora was shown.

You can watch the new footage below!

The American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP) recently listed on their website a song which goes by the name "Face my Fears", also known as "OPENING THEME (KINGDOM HEARTS 3)". The website also credits Utada Hikaru, Skrillex and Boyd Jason "Poo Bear" as writers.

Both "Chikai" and "Don't Think Twice" are also listed on ASCAP as Kingdom Hearts III's ending themes.

It is also interesting to notice how Skrillex already expressed his interest towards the Kingdom Hearts videogame in the past, but he also shown his appreciation for Utada Hikaru's work on his Twitter handle:

The booth also displayed the fully colored Nomura's artwork for Kingdom Hearts' 15th Anniversary, which was originally a monocromatic version. This version also appears to be slightly different from the original one, were Sora looked to be petting an unidentified animal (now absent). The artwork has been displayed in a molded form, in front of various characters' frames:

One of the main things on which many fans had the chance to take a look at, were the items and merchandise that were exclusively showcased at TGS for the first time. Among those, an Axel Bring Arts Prototype was shown along with previously announced figures like Toy Box Sora, Donald, and Goofy, and Halloween/Christmas Town Sora, and the now finished Kingdom Hearts III Bring Arts Kairi was also shown. Signed Yoko Shimomura CDs (Kingdom Hearts 10th Anniversary Fan Selection - Melodies & Memories -, Kingdom Hearts -HD 1.5 & 2.5 ReMIX- Original Soundtrack BOX, Kingdom Hearts Concert -First Breath- Album) are available for purchase.
