All this new info just had to be released while I was travelling

Following the release of the final trailer for the 'Kingdom Hearts III' Re:MIND DLC yesterday, Square-Enix released new information and character renders relating to the downloadable content.


First off, we finally know the price range for the DLC. The regular package costs $29.99, while a package that includes everything in the regular version plus video of the Kingdom Hearts Orchestra will cost $39.99. Second, we finally know what is included in both the paid and free DLC packages.

Lastly, Square-Enix released renders tied to the upcoming DLC (check them out above), which include a brand new render for Sora, as well as renders for returning characters that'll have some involvement in the DLC story update (Aerith, Leon, Cid, Yuffie, the Fairy Godmother).
Square-Enix has released a new trailer for the upcoming 'Kingdom Hearts III' Re:MIND DLC, featuring English-voiced scenes, as well as revealing the return of some Final Fantasy characters, playable Kairi, and more! Check out the trailer below:

In addition to the trailer, it's been confirmed that the DLC will be released on January 23, 2020 for the PS4 and February 25, 2020 for the Xbox One!

EDIT: It seems that Square-Enix removed the trailer, indicating that it possibly didn't intend to release the trailer yet. Once the upload is official, we will re-add the trailer to this post.

EDIT2: Trailer has now been officially released by Square-Enix
During the Kingdom Hearts Orchestra performance in Osaka, the series director, Tetsuya Nomura, made an appearance, and revealed some information about the upcoming DLC for 'Kingdom Hearts III':
First off, a new trailer will be released next month, and the DLC's release date will finally be revealed (presumably with the trailer). Also, two new difficulty modes have been announced, called Fast Pass and Black Code. Fast Pass is an extremely easy mode that allows players to defeat enemies with one hit. Black Code, on the other hand, is an extremely difficult mode, allowing players to adjust difficulty to make things as hard as possible (ex. no healing). In addition to the difficulties, Photo Mode was revealed to get some additional features, allowing players to choose a location and pose with different characters, while also providing the player with the ability to include background effects. There will also be a Slideshow Mode, allowing players to create slideshows with their photos.

The year is winding to its close, and so it's time to determine the best that video games had to offer in 2019. The Game Awards, an annual celebration of gaming hosted by Geoff Keighley, released their list of this year's nominees today, and Kingdom Hearts III made the cut! The game is nominated for the Best Score/Music and Best RPG awards.

You can vote for Kingdom Hearts III and your other favorite games on the show's official website. The Game Awards 2019 will air on Thursday, December 12 at 5:30pm PT, and can be viewed on the show's website, in select Cinemark theaters, or a whole slew of other streaming platforms.

Let us know in the comments who you're hoping wins!
Despite having already been released many months ago, Square-Enix is releasing a free demo of the game on both the Playstation Store and the Microsoft Store so those who still haven't got a chance to play the game can give it a try. The demo will include two sections, with one focusing on the opening sequence and Olympus, while the other will focus on Toy Box. Also, those who decide to purchase the full version of the game after trying out the demo can transfer save data from the Olympus section to the full game!
