March 28, 2022 marks exactly 20 years since the release of the first Kingdom Hearts game and in commemoration, series creator Tetsuya Nomura showed off a sketch that will appear for the anniversary event. According to the tweet, Nomura is so busy with preparations for the 20th Anniversary event that he has not had time to prepare anything for the actual day. The sketch that he teased is one that he is trying to finish for the actual event.

Because of the picture size, as well as the Kingdom Hearts 20th Anniversary frame, it is difficult to make out exactly what the sketch will look like. In the picture, you can see characters like Sora and various versions of Xehanort. There also appears to be characters similar to Luxord and Marluxia in the corner.

You can see the full Nomura sketch here, as well as on the official Kingdom Hearts Twitter account:

The event that Nomura alludes to is one that will take place on April 10, 2022. It will be in Tokyo, Japan, and tickets are available from the Square Enix Members website. However, it is through a lottery system. Square Enix also started hosting a Kingdom Hearts 20th Anniversary event at the Square Enix Cafe in Akihabara. The first part of the event will run from March 26 to April 15, 2022, whereas the second will be from April 16 to May 6, 2022.

As you will not be able to take pictures or videos in the Kingdom Hearts 20th Anniversary event in Tokyo, the finished art piece will likely appear on the Kingdom Hearts Twitter account in the near future.
