0
Five new mousepads will appear worldwide, and Japan will get a new collection of keychains.

A new round of Kingdom Hearts merchandise is on the way, and it involves an array of different mouse pads and some metal keychains inspired by ones used in hotels. The mouse pads are available in circular and rectangular designs. Those will debut in Japan on March 25, 2023. All of the mouse pads will appear sometime in July 2023 outside Japan. The keychains will appear in Japan on April 29, 2023.

The two rectangular Kingdom Hearts mouse pads are 20th anniversary ones. One features a number of decorative accents referencing characters from the series set against a black background. The other shows a number of stained glass windows featuring characters like Sora, Roxas, Xion, Riku, and King Mickey. These are $34.99 each. They are 40cm (15.75in) long and 80cm (31.5”) wide.

The circular Kingdom Hearts mouse pads are part of a continuing line of merchandise. That one kicked off back in January 2022 in Japan (and May 2022 worldwide) with one of Sora. Volume 2, 3, and 4 in this series are appearing now. Each one is $18.99. Vol. 2 features Sora, Vol. 3 features Roxas, and Vol. 4 shows Ventus with Vanitas.

Finally, here is the set of metal keychains currently only confirmed for a Japanese release. Each one is designed to look like a hotel room key and features a character’s name on it. The silver ones are based on Sora, Riku, and Kairi. The gold ones mention Terra, Aqua, and Ventus. The four black ones reference Roxas, Axel, Xion, and King Mickey. In Japan, people can buy a box with a full set of 10 for 16,500円 (~$118) or a single blind box one for 1,650円 (~$12).
