    The time to use my new card is gettin close


  • takopako

    daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaang…cant wait. i kept my excitement down, but hearing them in english really stirs me up! XD

  • My 3DS serve only to play this game!!!

  • Only the voice clips? What about the sound effects? This is mostly raw footage, but it’s alright with me!

  • Xapth

    I hope the rumor about an English demo is true, because I can’t wait to try this game out!

    For some reason, I found Roxas saying “Got it memorized?” really funny!

    •  It’s not a rumor. The director himself confirmed it.

  • To me the voices seem a bit off. Also, from the original Japanese trailer to this trailer some of the translations were a bit off/funny. I hope that they were just rushing it for E3 and that the final product will be better. Still can’t wait to play it though!

  • Niermyico

    Maybe it just me, but I think they need to work more on those lines. It’s like they’re not even trying anymore.

    Anyways, I need this game. Inside me.

  • OMG squeenix STOP with the mirrors.

  • Anime10121

    Sora’s voice sounds MUCH better here than his previous attempts at his younger voice.  Haley, you’ve done well. :)

    • Masengan

       My thought’s exactly.

  • AuraGuyChris

    KH trailers never seize to amaze me…

    But Sanctuary is now being overused like Simple & Clean. At this rate, we’d have upon us the “Guile Theme Goes With Everything: KH Version” soon.

    • KHSoraKeyBlade

       Well it isn’t used in the opening for the game as they use the instrumental of Hikari, they just have it in the trailer for some reason.

  • 9:16 “I’ve seen enough hentai to know where this is going.”

    Great trailer once again Squenix, just too bad this is for a console I’d only buy for this & Theatrythm.

  • Wow, who’s You.. I meant, Mysterious Figure’s english voice actor? The way he speaks sound somewhat with a hint of Billy Zane impression.

    • KHSoraKeyBlade

       It’s David Gallagher, he voiced him in BbS as well. But yeah now he has two roles in this game as well :P

  • (( Hehe, glad I could help out, Ishaan! ))
    I can’t believe it’s actually an almost 10 minute long trailer! I think I was completely absorbed by my excitement to even notice.

    Also, I’m glad that NA is getting it the 20th because I thought I was going to have to wait longer…even if it’s by about a week.

    • Anime10121

      I think Ishaan has the dates backwards, the official websites say NA gets it July 31 and Europe gets it the 20th.  But then again on Square’s recent financial reports they have the game listed as NA 20th and Euro 31st.  I dont think Square knows when they’re releasing the game:P

      •  Whichever date it may be, I’m glad it’s not sometime next year :)

  • Really, really well done. This is the finest Kingdom Hearts production to date. It’s amazing how great the voice acting is in this game, the best in the series so far (followed by KH2 in my opinion). Cannot wait till the end of July when I’ll be picking this up as a day 1 purchase. Well done Square, you’ve been winning me back this year, with releases like FFXIII-2, Heroes of Ruin, Theatrhythm and this, it is very well done.  

  • I dunno…The Dub sounds kinda..off. Sounds like they were bored though Mickey’s new voice seems to have improved.

  • kool_cid414

    A single word has never brought forth such an emotion of desire and happiness and that word is: WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANNNNNNNNNNNNNtttttttttttttttTTTTTTTT

  • ALL OF MY MONIES!!!!!!!

    Wait that they doesn’t look right.. Let me repeat that.

    ALL OF MY MUNNIES!!!!!!!!

    • AnimusVox

      I see what you did there.

  • Guest

    Once again this story totally confuses me

    •  Care to explain why? If you want, I’m willing to explain, I think I got a good grasp on everything that happened so far in the KH universe, I spent some time actually replaying all the games and reading up everything I could on the game for some time. It’s rather confusing, yes, but if one takes the time to read between the lines, it’s not really hard.

      I’d take a complex and engrossing story over something simple and basic, personally.

  • KHSoraKeyBlade

    Everything. Just have everything of mine. *throws everything*

  • Lexaus_the_Alchemist

    No word on special events or bosses for future releases yet huh? Cuz we all know how BbS turned out… (despite being amazing).

    • I remember something about Nomura saying they’re not thinking of a remix version… So far KH Nintendo titles never gotten a remix title before, I gonna say no….

    • KHSoraKeyBlade

      There are two secret bosses in the game. To my knowledge any ways, I’ve been avoiding spoilers so I can’t be certain if there is any more. *shrugs*

      • hawk222

        They said something about one of the secret bosses that isn’t exactly spoiler-y, but I’ll refrain from mentioning it in case anyone really, really doesn’t want to know.
        That being said, I tried to think of who that secret boss could be, and I eventually went to see if any of my guesses were correct. They were not. All I’ll say about that secret boss is that, more than likely, you’ll have no idea who it is. (I mean, it only appeared in one other thing besides this game, so unless you’ve seen that, then…)
        But anyway, I’ve probably said too much already, so… SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MUNNY!!

        • KHSoraKeyBlade

           I know who two of the secret bosses are and correct me if I am wrong here but….. *SPOILERS SPOILERS EVERYWHERE PEOPLE* It’s a dream eater frog and uh, some Disney character…..
          If there is any more I’d rather not know until I play the game. :P
          But yes, take all of my MUNNY! :DD

  • XYZ_JolteonZ980

    The voices sounded odd. Disney characters except for Tron were great. The Tron vas sounded kind of bores. But that is Sora’s voice, what even? Sounds different.

    Graphics and story seem nice. Im guessing the game has some feature in place that gets us fresh Kingdom Hearts players caught up on the story?

    • Yes… With huge amount of texts and pictures…

    • Tan Wei Lun

      i think it’s because the voice actors are getting a bit too old, esp sora’s. :P lets face it, haley osment isnt getting any younger.

  • usagi_san

    Is this game worth getting if you missed out on BBS, Chain of Memories, 358/2 Days, KHII and coded.

    I do hope SE makes a HD-remake of the PS2 games; put the handheld titles on there respective and I’ll try to pick all the others somewhere else. 

    • Anime10121

       So basically you just missed out on the entire series, barring the first game?

      I still think its worth getting, if for the gameplay alone.  KH’s gameplay has been increasingly getting better and better over the years and this one looks to have the best yet (BBS is generally held as the best so far)! 

      • usagi_san

        Yeah, I did. didn’t pick-up a GBA until late into its life cycle; never owned a PSP. 

        The gameplay looks very good. I’m glad to hear that it has been getting better over time.

        • hawk222

          If you haven’t played any of the other games, that should still be ok: the game is supposed to have an option on the main menu that will let you read up on what happened in previous games, to help bring you up to speed.

          Then again, there are also summaries and videos online, too.

          • usagi_san

            Thanks for that! I’d probably stick to the summaries. I’d prefer to play the game for the cutscenes, if you know what I mean?

    • boundries_san

      Well if u can still found urself KH 2, i will said that this game is worth getting as this one is direct continuation from KH 2 not like the other KH series that u missed except Chain of Memories which is direct continuation from KH 1 to 2.

      Hope that will be informative enough.^^

      • ^ Not To Mention KH 3D has a Summary Option where you can read what happens in the previous games

        • boundries_san

          Yup.^^ But what i meant here, it is always a better experience if u played them directly.^^

          • usagi_san

            No, I definitely understood what you meant. I would rather have played through the games than reading about it in a summary. But alas, some can’t be bothered to try and hunt down old titles and having to play through them – it makes this game more accessible with this feature to those interested in the game.

      • usagi_san

        @facebook-100001803906692:disqus Thank you, both of you. Very informative. I’ll probably pick it up at a later date. Knowing that there is a Summary Option, will be very helpful if don’t pick up any of the other titles.  

  • SerendipityX

    I actually understood what the mysterious figure was talking about in the beginning of that trailer…? O_O Finally PROGRESSS!!! (^_^)/

  • PenguinChan1119

    The return of Axel yay!  I’m so excited I literally got my 3ds for this game. For a while the system was collecting dust but since Kid Icarus came out it’s all good.

  • Christopher Nunes

    Awesome trailer! Glad to hear it in English! I cannot wait until this game comes out! Got it pre-order and everything, so I eagerly await this awesome 3DS game!

  • Kyle D. Johnson

    Was I the only one who yelled out “DR. OCTAGONAPUS! BLAAAGH!” When Ursula fired that Hyper Beam from her mouth?

  • I do not give even a quarter of a crap about this game, but is that actually Jeff Bridges in there??

  • … Sooo… Kingdom Hearts 3 is comming out next… right Square Enix? No more KH spin-offs?


    • I second that motion….

    • You forgot about Bith by Sleep volume 2!!!!!!! (Seriously, the final mix secret ending states that there willl be one.)

  • This looks really cool and all, but…
    KH3? Guys? It’s kinda almost been an entire console generation since KH2, and we can only stay interested ofr so long…

    • Göran Isacson

      Not gonna happen until Versus XIII is released, according to Nomura.

  • DemonicX

    How I still wish Sho Minamimoto would’ve been a secret boss fight or at least a cameo.

  • Göran Isacson

    Looking neat, but I have two questions- is that the original voice cast of Tron: Legacy, and is that the original voice of Joshua? Because he REALLY doesn’t soun like Joshua as I remember him.

    • DemonicX

      I thought the same thing about Joshua. I don’t believe it is the same voice actor as before.
