The official Square-Enix Music Twitter account surprised fans today with some details on the much requested original soundtrack of 'Kingdom Hearts III' that was announced about a month ago that should get people excited:
First off, the soundtrack has been confirmed to be released in a few months on November 11 (with the digital version of the soundtrack releasing worldwide on the same date)! Also, the soundtrack will consist of 8 discs, and will contain over 90 songs not just from 'Kingdom Hearts III', but also music from the Re:MIND DLC, as well as additional tracks from HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue, Unchained X, and Union X[cross] that never got an official release! There will also be a campaign in mid-September where fans can enter a lottery to win autographs from the composers who have contributed to the music of the series (Yoko Shimomura, Takeharu Ishimoto & Tsuyoshi Sekito). The soundtrack can be pre-ordered from the following locations at this time:
In a surprising announcement, Square-Enix has provided Kingdom Hearts fans with a new trailer today, revealing a few surprises in store for us coming this year:



Union X[cross] and Dark Road
First off, the trailer shows what to expect with upcoming new story quests in 'Kingdom Hearts: Union X[cross]'. After that, the trailer gives us our first real look at the other mobile game, 'Kingdom Hearts: Dark Road', giving us an additional look at the game's characters, and the gameplay in action. Lastly, the trailer confirms the game will be released less than a week from now on June 22nd!

Kingdom Hearts III Original Soundtrack
Ever since the game first released a year and a half ago, fans have been demanding an official soundtrack for 'Kingdom Hearts III' to be made available. Now, it appears that the folks over at Square-Enix and Disney have granted the wishes of fans, with the trailer confirming that an official soundtrack of the game will be releasing in Fall 2020!

Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory
The final announcement from today's trailer came in the form of a reveal, confirming that a rhythm action game (sort of similar to Theatrhythm Final Fantasy), named 'Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory', will be releasing in 2020 for the PS4, Xbox One, and the Nintendo Switch (marking the first time a Kingdom Hearts game was released on that console)! What's more is that the game seems to also have a playable scenario that takes place after the events of KH3: ReMind, allowing players to play as Kairi!

While these announcements were terrific, eagle eyed viewers will have noticed that the beginning of the trailer reveals that the series is now in its "2nd Phase", which seems to have started with KH3: ReMind, and includes Dark Road and Melody of Memory. But what's interesting is that the series' 2nd Phase contains five slots, three that are occupied by ReMind, Dark Road, and Melody of Memory, while the other two slots may hint at two currently unannouced projects!

EDIT:

English version of the trailer has released:

For the past few weeks, there have been unverifiable rumors stating that a 'Kingdom Hearts' show was in the works. However, it seems like some trustworthy reporters have corroborated the claims, hinting that there really is a 'Kingdom Hearts' show in the works:
As the above tweet states, the show will be CG animated, with Disney VO actors expected to reprise their roles, and is expected to head straight to Disney's video streaming service, Disney+.
Another interesting detail mentioned in the above tweet is that Square-Enix appears to be animating the pilot using Unreal Engine, the same engine that was used to develop 'Kingdom Hearts III', so expect the show to have similar quality to the game's cutscenes.

Dengeki Playstation, which sadly released its final issue recently, got a chance to interview director Tetsuya Nomura. While the interview mainly focuses on the upcoming Final Fantasy VII remake, Nomura did talk a bit on Kingdom Hearts, discussing topics related to the recent 'Kingdom Hearts III' DLC, the mystery surrounding Yozora, and teases upcoming plans for the series. Check out Nomura's interview below (credit to Dandelion of KHInsider for translating the interview):

Hey everyone! Got a big update I'm sure some of you were waiting on. We've updated our Kingdom Hearts III Cutscene Archive with all the scenes from the Re Mind DLC, with no subtitles and Kingdom Key only! And as with the rest of the game, these scenes were meticulously edited to remove any stuttering that pops up all too often. Addtionally, certain sequences were recorded in such a way that the background music continues across multiple scenes without any awkward cuts. I really like the end result with how it makes some gameplay sequences feel a little extra cinematic.

We also updated the following videos to reflect changes that were made to some cutscenes from the base game in a patch:
Keyblade Graveyard
Scala ad Caelum
Ending + Credits

We suggest you re-download those to get the most up-to-date versions. If you're a collector who still wants to hold on the older versions for posterity, we got ya covered. At the end of the newly added "Extra + Alternate Scenes" video, we've got the pre-patch cutscenes intact (some scenes are cut down for time, but anything that was changed is still there).

We also recommend re-downloading "The Carribean". There was an editing de-sync error in the Raging Vulture scene that has since been corrected.

Or to keep it simple, just download the Part 2 and Part 3 .zip files at the top of the KH3 archive page, and you'll be all caught up.

Once again we're all caught up. Check out our Cutscene Archive Main Page for all that the scenes that this crazy series has to offer. I'll be patiently/eagerly waiting alongside you to see what the future holds. Until then, may your heart yada yada.
