In preparation for the release of 'Kingdom Hearts III' in Japan next Friday (we're so close!!!), Square-Enix released a 2 minute commercial for the game, focusing first on the fans of the series, and then giving us a look at more cutscenes and gameplay (with a new Drive Form revealed called Rage Form, which appears to be an Anti Form variant). Check out the commercial below:

As with past entries in the series, 'Kingdom Hearts III' will have an accompanying Ultimania guidebook releasing on February 28, 2019, a month after the game's release! For those unaware, the Ultimania books in the past typically contained additional information on a Kingdom Hearts game (such as enemy stats and revelations from Tetsuya Nomura himself) along with some artwork. The 'Kingdom Hearts III' Ultimania can now be pre-ordered at the Japanese Square-Enix e-store for ¥2700 (roughly $23.79).
In preparation for KH3's release in January, Square-Enix has announced a new compilation for the PS4 containing 'HD 1.5 + 2.5 ReMix' and 'HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue', titled 'Kingdom Hearts: The Story So Far', which is scheduled to be available October 30th, retailing at $39.99. The compilation currently is only scheduled for release in the U.S. Check out the announcement below:
