Kingdom Hearts III update due in October?

Square Enix will host a “Kingdom Hearts Limited Stage” at D23 Expo in Japan this October.

The stage will feature Kingdom Hearts series director Tetsuya Nomura, executive producer Shinji Hashimoto, and some familiar voice actors.

It will include talk show about the secret stories of Kingdom Hearts and more, and other events that you will only be able to experience there.

The event will be held on October 14 from 15:00 to 16:00 Japan time.

Nomura previously said he’d like to put out more Kingdom Hearts III information at D23 Expo and Tokyo Game Show, so we’ll likely get an update during the presentation.

Thanks, Message from the Kingdom.

    I thought he also said KH III would be at TGS 2013 as well.

    • Stryker_X20

      Well, TGS is September 2013. This event is in October.

    • KiQun

      Wonder any info other than story will be disclosed at this event since it’s pretty much said the game is at initial development.

  • Syltique

    We’ll probably be seeing KH 2.5 before we see anything else on KH 3. KH3 is just not even close to ready. They’ve been pretty up front about it.

    • Awnye

      A TGS 2.5 Remix reveal is very possible. But Nomura has also said he hopes to specifically put out more KH3 info at both TGS & D23 events. c:

  • Bryce Blalex Douglas

    Thanks Sal always giving us our KH fix!!!

  • Kurisu Makise

    Yes Square Enix, step up the Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts news/hype train. I believe Hashimoto’s plea has not only been met, but earned. I am definitely excited.

  • new_tradition

    I swear, the things this series does to me…*_*

    I’m super curious about the secret stories of KH. Half of me wants it to be interesting and plot relevant, but the other half doesn’t. Just means more info that isn’t in the game to understand stuff, lol ;A;

  • Zackasaur

    Man, I could not be more in love with this series. So excited!

    • Nice Boat

      Please be exci–Oh, you already are…

  • Budgiecat

    He looks so happy…..but his hair looks like dried clay….

  • DarthBrian

    You really should specify D23 Expo *JAPAN* in the article title because some of us (ME) are going to the D23 Expo in Anaheim in August and I almost had a heart attack and I could’ve died for no reason and you would have felt really really sad. :(

  • EspadaKiller

    Hope that they speed up the process of FFXV so that they have time to develop KH3! Been anticipating these 2 games for a looooooong time!

  • PrinceHeir

    can’t wait for more news!

  • Gilgamesh2025

    October 14? Okay, noted! Can’t wait! :)

  • Anime10121

    New Kingdom Hearts III news incoming in 2-3 months! YAY!!!!

    Wonder if they’ll be able to show a Disney world off yet (or will they still be in the process of deciding worlds)? Man I STILL can not believe its finally happening! Kingdom Hearts Mother Frekin 3! /faints

  • Nice Boat

    Sweet! I still wonder if Square plans to announce KH 2.5 HD and for what console

    • artemisthemp

      Most likely Sony System.

      • SOLOmio

        better, cause Sony users don’t get Microsoft exclusives either.

    This game is gonna run better on PS4 anyway. Just one question for discussion: Does anyone think that this is just a one time deal?

    Yoichi Wada is the guy who made this decision most likely. He’s just a chairman now, so he won’t be making any big decisions. I think we all know that this game is gonna sell best on PS4 just like FFXV. The sales on the Xbox One version are gonna be kinda pathetic in comparison to the PS4’s. Square Enix also has reported huge losses. They NEED to make this a multiplat to squeeze as much money out of it. The gen hasn’t even started yet so they need to start getting to know the hardware (On PS4 especially) and make it on PC and then port it to the PS4 and Xbox One.

    Also we know the PS4 is more powerful then the Xbox One. If you’ve seen one of my comments before, you’d know that I think in 2-3 years, when games use more and more RAM (including GDDR5 meaning just less games for Xbox One), the Xbox One is gonna get some seriously watered down ports or just less games, from Japanese devs especially will ditch it later. So when the games after KH3 and FFXV come out (KH4,KH5, FFXV-2, and FFXVI) they’ll be exclusive to PS4, because they won’t be able to run on Xbox One and because Square will know that they won’t sell well enough on the Xbox One (Yes I know it might come to PC but it probably won’t with their development costs high enough and if they did it would still sell best on PS4)? Keep in mind that Sony could’ve locked those 2 games as exclusive but they didn’t because they’re focusing on 1st party right now (for now 1st party exclusive will be the main focus). Tetsuya Nomura also loves his exclusivity. I really can’t any game apart from KH3 and FFXV that are multiplats. Both this and FFXV will probably be out by 2015. What do you guys think?
