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:
Drowned out by all the excitement over the new KH3 trailer, it has also been revealed that Kingdom Hearts: VR Experience will be arriving this winter for the Playstation VR for free! This immersive experience will allow fans to enjoy a 10 minute interactive video reliving memorable moments from the Kingdom Hearts series featuring the franchise's beautiful music. New content can be unlocked by playing through the experience. Check out the trailer below:

In an interview discussing rapper Eminem's new album Kamikaze, his producer, Illadaproducer, revealed something that caught many 'Kingdom Hearts' fans by surprise. It turns out that the song 'Good Day' contains a sample from a 'Kingdom Hearts' song. Check out the interview excerpt below:

Having listened to the song myself, I wasn't able to recognize which song was sampled, but if I had to make a guess, it was probably 'Passion'.

Thanks to @Heart ❤ for letting me know!

Gameblog, a French video game website, recently posted an interview conducted with the Kingdom Hearts series director, Tetsuya Nomura, to discuss Kingdom Hearts III. While most of what's discussed has already been revealed, Nomura does reveal what his favorite world from the series is, and how that while KH3 is meant to be the end of the Xehanort saga, it isn't necessarily the the conclusion to the story of Sora and his friends.
