Kingdom Hearts III Takes Over Shinjuku Station With Images, Stories, And Memories



Square Enix is no stranger to decorating the busy Shinjuku Station that sees over a million passersby daily. Last time it got an event for Kingdom Hearts’ 15th anniversary, and now one for Kingdom Hearts III.


The new display is located at the Metro Promenade at the Tokyo Metro Marunouchi Line in Shinjuku, where it’ll be available through July 1.


Here’s a closer look at the display courtesy 4Gamer:









Additionally, there’s a little something fans can take home with the “Memorial Leaflets” based on the videos of stories connected to Kingdom Hearts III:

These leaflets are based on Square Enix’s summary videos called “Stories related to III” and feature quotes and artwork from Kingdom Hearts. The leaflets are being distributed everyday for the event at 10:00am, 2:00pm, 5:00pm, and 8:00pm JST.



However, it goes without saying does get pretty busy, especially during the 10:00am session as photographed.


Here’s a look at what’s inside one of the leaflets:




There are three different leaflets from each book, so a total of 15 for passing fans to collect.
