Hey everyone, recently Famitsu has a User Eye Ranking, to see what those in Japan think are the top games that have been released in Japan during the first half of the year. It seems as though Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix+ has came in first place, as the number one game for the first half of 2007!

Congratulations Nomura! You must feel really proud to have made such a successful game to earn such a ranking.

It is also said another Square-Enix game, Final Fantasy Tactics scored 15th place.

Square-Enix has recently updated their site today, with a list of games they plan on showing at TGS 2007.

Now it should be noted that even though Kingdom Hearts isn't on the list, it doesn't mean it will not show up there. Square-Enix always gives off surprises for new projects! They're even bringing back a game (Tobal) that was made over 10 years ago, that just shows how many surprises they have! Plus Tetsuya Nomura has already confirmed Kingdom Hearts to appear at TGS 2007

For those that do not know, the Tokyo Game Show will be on September the 21st - 23rd 2007, in Tokyo. To learn more information go here.

Every week, I scour the video portal's latest submissions and pick my top five favorites. Just because you don't make it into the top five does not mean that you're video wasn't good. We just have so many good videos that they're hard to choose from! Here's the top five for this week.

Hey guys, although not much, we at KHV managed to have a quick chat with Kevin Delaney. If you don't know who he is, he voiced the Tournament Announcer, who was very enthusiastic about his job! Even if it's not a major role, he shares with us his thoughts on voice acting in Kingdom Hearts II

KD = Kevin Delaney



Xaldin: How did it feel when you got called to voice act in Kingdom Hearts II?

KD: Of course I was excited when I got the call to voice act in KH2!


Xaldin: Did you know much about Kingdom Hearts then?

KD: I'm not much of a gamer and am not all that up on the current hot games. I didn't know about the previous KH games, but I did some research online and learned about them prior to the session.

Xaldin: Where there any scrapped lines for your character?

KD: don't know if there were any lines we recorded which didn't make it into the game. I know there was some more to the part than was in the clip you sent me. I believe the announcer appears in some other point in the game, maybe at the end of the tournament. I do remember one of the lines was "What just happened . . . ?"


Xaldin: What type of description did they give you to portray his voice?

KD: As for the description I got for the Tournament Announcer, I was told they wanted something young, cool, fun sounding -- not an older, serious kind of announcer at all. The original game was done in Japanese, so we were essentially dubbing the new lines in English. I can't recall now if they showed me the video of what the guy looked like -- I think they did. Seeing a visual is always helpful in creating a voice for a character.


Xaldin: How did you feel about the character?

KD: I thought it was a fun part.


Xaldin: Overall how did you feel about the Project?

KD: I was happy to be a part of the game. I knew that a lot of celebrities were doing voices for it -- though I didn't get to work with any of them in the studio. I did attend the release party at the Pacific Design Center here in Los Angeles, and saw lots of young stars there. Unfortunately, the only person I recognized was Haley Joel Osment, and I didn't get a chance to talk with him.
Square-Enix at Gencon '07

Hey everyone, it seems as though Square-Enix presented some of their figurines, and other collectibles at Gencon '07. For those that don't know Gencon is a miniature gaming convention where demos, and premiers are shown.

Gencon was hosted from August 19th 2007 to August 21st 2007.

Square-Enix showed a few figurines from Final Fantasy, and Kingdom Hearts, however they also had a sneak peak at the upcoming Trading Cards that are to be released at October 2007 and had demo packs of three issues, and we have an exclusive peak of them right here! Here's a little preview screenshot.

You can download the .zip of the entire collection from the link below, in High Resolution, and some figurine models!

Many thanks to our forum member Sora_Hero_of_Light for sending us this wonderful collection. We'll be sure to have a more in depth look at these cards, and you can expect our full analysis in Late October/Early November 2007.

Edit:
KH1 Novel Unexpected Delay?

We have unfortunate news about the Kingdom Hearts I Novel, it seems from it's set release no one was able to get their hands on it. Well one of members, twilightsbringing, went to take a look into this and found out directly from Disney that the paper-back edition of Kingdom Hearts: The First Door will not be released until June of 2008. Which is almost a whole year away, although did not speak about a Hardcover release meaning we may still see that sometime later this year.

KHV Helps KH2 Voice Actor

Finally, although not as important, we at KHV.net managed to help a Kingdom Hearts II Voice Actor with his site by providing him a voice clip of his role, which is the tournament announcer. You can view our contribution to his website here.
