Square Enix Japan's e-Store has revealed that a Kingdom Hearts 15th Anniversary Box will be available as a pre-order bonus for HD 1.5+2.5 ReMix in Japan, intended to store a copy of both 1.5+2.5, as well as the recently released 'Kingdom Hearts 2.8 HD Final Chapter Prologue'. The box also contains artwork that merges the three cover arts of the three HD re-releases (something that Nomura talked about in the past). Take a look at how the anniversary box looks like below:

The official Kingdom Hearts website has just received a massive update, such as dividing the series into four games (Unchained χ[chi], HD 1.5 + 2.5 Remix, HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue, and of course KH3), new character summaries, worlds being listed with the movie they are based off of, as well as the addition of images and past trailers. Interesting things to note in the updated website include the following timeline:

Also, the area usually referred to as the Dark Margin now appears to have an official name:

The sales numbers for 'Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue' are in, and it looks like the collection is a success, selling 137,797 copies of the game during its first week in Japan. By comparison, this is a better number than the previous two collections, which during their first week in Japan sold 128,414 (1.5) and 84,935 (2.5).

In the latest issue of Dengeki Playstation, 'Kingdom Hearts' director, Tetsuya Nomura, talked a bit on both 'Kingdom Hearts 2.8 HD Final Chapter Prologue' and 'Kingdom Hearts III'. While a full translation of the interview isn't out yet, KHInsider user Zephyr was able to translate some of the main points of the interview, where Nomura discusses things such as no new boxart for 'Kingdom Hearts 1.5+2.5' on the PS4, how the remasters have never affected development of KH3, and the return of Reaction Commands in KH3 (now called Situation Commands and evolved to be less like simple QTEs). The main points can be read below:
This post will be updated with the full interview as soon as a translation is out.

Hey there video editors! Got some more content for you to work with. This time around it's the Kingdom Hearts Re:Coded movie.

With the PS4 versions of 1.5 + 2.5 coming out in a matter of months, I put a hold on recording KH2FM and BBSFM. But I went ahead and recorded this, since Re:Coded is pre-rendered and likely won't be getting any improvements on PS4 (though if it does, we will revisit it).

The next few months are an exciting time for the Kingdom Hearts community, with 2.8 on the horizon, then 1.5 + 2.5 shortly after. We hope you'll stick with us for news updates, community events, and those sweet, sweet vids.
