Kingdom Hearts Will Have A Big Presence At Japan’s Disney Expo

By Spencer . August 7, 2013 . 1:28am

kh2da Disney plans on giving Kingdom Hearts a push during the D23 Expo in Japan. D23 is basically an expo that’s exclusively about Disney.

 

A Kingdom Hearts talk show with series director Tetsuya Nomura and executive producer Shinji Hashimoto is one of the events. Famitsu reports voice actors Kouki Uchiyama (Sora), Mamoru Miyano (Riku), and Miyu Irino (Roxas/Ventus) will be at the event too.

 

Fans can also bid in a charity auction for a limited edition Sora figurine autographed by Nomura.

 

The Kingdom Hearts panel takes place on October 14 at 3PM, so expect more Kingdom Hearts news then.

    There’s a slight error in the article, Sora’s and Roxas’s voice actors are reversed. Sorry for being a fanboy

      You’re “passionate”

    C’mon, Nomura.. Tease us a bit of things of what’s to come— potential plot, worlds, possible new characters and even what could awaits us beyond the Xehanort Saga~!

  • Dagobert

    I doubt any game footage will be shown besides what’s been shown at E3. Honestly I doubt we’ll see any new KH3 footage at Tokyo Gameshow either. I’m fine with that, as long as they can finally get FFXV out.

    • Göran Isacson

      Yeah, that’s most likely the case. I’d be happy with them telling us something new about the game, but I wonder if they will just basically repeat the stuff they’ve said so far in interviews… hopefully the voice actors may have something fresh and interesting to say?

    • http://blackstar2661.deviantart.com/ SilverSpades

      Yeah, I’m not expecting new videos and trailers, just a few new details would be nice, maybe even a 2.5 teaser.

      • Solomon_Kano

        I’d say 2.5 is a sure thing, though I’d wager we see that revealed at TGS rather than saved for D23.

  • Notquitesure?

    To be honest i just want to see some potential designs for keyblades, would like to see a brotherhood ffx one, or they might even do a noctis one to represent ffxv, whatevers cool.

  • SunOatBoatMatadorQuattro

    An actual KH3 trailer please!

    • Anime10121

      Not likely yet. Next year however, I’m sure we’ll see our first “real” trailer! But then again, who knows, SE surprised the hell outta me even announcing the game to begin with, so, maybe.

  • Sardorim

    I look forward to more KH III news and maybe some shots of Aqua.

    Her reunion with her friends are long overdue!

  • hazelnut1112

    Kingdom Hearts theme park attractions only in Disneyland Japan.

  • Solomon_Kano

    I don’t expect we’ll get too much with KH3 presumably still a ways off, but I’d at least like to see some of Nomura’s new designs for the characters, final or not.

    • DCBlackbird

      I’m actually sort of scared for this game. Call me crazy but I think we could have used at least one more precursor(kh 0.5) to satisfy that secret ending. Those 6 new hooded figures(hint hint)won’t seem to have enough time to have their characters established(then again if they’re all one guy….)in one game. Maybe I’m talking out of my a** and I just want KH3 to be entirely about this final showdown and to see this Master Xehanorts cruel ways contrast Sora’s friendly ones….. or maybe to tie some loose ends like all of those Armor secret boss battles…. I mean they have to have some impact on the plot.

        I’m sure most of the new Organization is made up of people we’ve already seen in the series. We’ll probably have a couple newbies too though.

    • Anime10121

      Probably just KH2.5′s reveal and a bit of Sora in Twilight Town, but this time with 5 seconds ( or 2 screenshots) of real time PS4 gameplay (instead of the video of gameplay shown at E3).

      But more likely just KH2.5′s reveal.

      • RisukuAozora

        Really? I think it’s far too soon for that, or it just goes to prove that the only thing that SE seems to care for is that series. That and their mobile games of course.

        • Solomon_Kano

          And Final Fantasy, and Dragon Quest, and apparently Drakengard.

      • Solomon_Kano

        2.5 is more likely for TGS, no real reason for them to save that for D23 when we already know it’s coming.

        • Anime10121

          True, I forgot TGS comes first! Only a month and a week to go! GET HYPE!

          • Solomon_Kano

            Yep! There’s been some hype shit every month for the last few and the next couple, man.

            E3 in June, Comic-Con in July, Level-5 Vision this month, TGS next, and D23 in October.

        • Steven Higgins

          I don’t think so, They said D23 would have a ‘Big announcement” The only game left to announce is 2.5. Unless Nomura changed his mind about not making BbSv2 an actual game.

          • Solomon_Kano

            I don’t know, man. Considering the things that have passed as “big announcements” in the past, it could be a manga they’re unveiling at D23 for all that tells us.

          • Steven Higgins

            Possible, but don’t remember them ever calling a Manga or a novel a big announcement, but if they do it has to be Coded, that’s the only game that as not been adapted into a paper medium. All I was saying is that the word “announcement” implies something we haven’t heard of yet or only suspect is in development, not something already confirmed like KHIII.
            Something new will be announced at D23. and they don’t have a lot left to work with.
