Hey everyone! I hope you're all enjoying Kingdom Hearts 3! For many of us this'll be our first full weekend with the game.

As I make my way through I've been recording cutscenes, and I'm happy to say I've got the first batch ready for download! As of this initial post there are only the first few worlds (6 videos total with intro and menu trailer), but I will be posting updates in this thread as I make progress. If you'd like to stay in the loop of what's available, click "Watch Thread" at the bottom of the page to receive notifications. I'll be saying how many videos were added, and the world names hidden in spoiler tags in case you aren't caught up and don't want to know. Bear in mind that the cutscene archive itself will have world names and thumbnails, so be careful if you are avoiding spoilers.

I now present our shiny new Kingdom Hearts III Cutscene Archive!

The scenes on this page are captured from my first playthrough, so they will have whatever Keyblade I was using at the time. However once I'm completely done, I plan on recording everything again using Theater Mode so it is Kingdom Key only, and that version will have subtitles turned off. There may be less scenes in the later version (any small clips that didn't make it into Theater Mode), but it will have smoother edits and be generally better for watching.

As always, you can find cutscenes from all of the Kingdom Hearts games on the main page of our Cutscene Archive.

Hi there, everyone!

The time has come at last! Kingdom Hearts III is only thirteen hours away! ...Well, in Japan, anyway. But it is out there now, and with that, our previous policy is no longer in effect. Starting tomorrow, January 24, you can discuss Kingdom Hearts III here on the forum and on the Discord server!

But we do have some stipulations.

First, we've got a brand-spankin'-new Kingdom Hearts III forum section for you to use! This is where the bulk of the discussion about the game should stay. If you have an especially dank meme about the game's contents to share, or if something about the story contributes to your theory about where Kingdom Hearts Union χ is headed next, or if a particular boss is giving you trouble, you can post in the appropriate sections for any of those things. But whether in or out of the Kingdom Hearts III forum section, make sure you hide your spoilers for anything not covered in the prerelease materials, clearly label them as Kingdom Hearts III spoilers, and don't put any spoilers in your thread titles. The staff is going to be keeping a sharp eye out for spoilers not properly hidden; people have been waiting years for this game, and we don't want anyone's experience ruined through carelessness. If we determine that you're sharing spoilers to troll others and be a grifter, we won't shy away from disciplinary action.

As for the Discord server, we've introduced the #kh3_story_spoilers channel! This is the only place on the server where you can talk about Kingdom Hearts III spoilers, and talking about them anywhere else will get you kicked. Starting on January 30, a day after the global release, we'll start allowing light spoilers in our regular #spoilers channel—things like "I just got to Arendelle; I really like this little detail!" and NOT things like "Wow, can you believe what happened in the secret ending?!"—so that people can discuss their playthroughs together without fear of ruining the story. Anything about the game not covered in the prerelease materials posted there before then will be deleted.

All in all, just be considerate! If you're not sure if something warrants a spoiler, be cautious and give it one anyway.

Enjoy Kingdom Hearts III, everyone! May your hearts be your guiding key!

If you don't know, here's how to hide your spoilers!

There are two ways to do this. One is with a spoiler tag, and the other is with an inline spoiler. A spoiler tag will create a box containing your text that only appears when you click on a button; an inline spoiler will obscure text in the middle of your post without creating any boxes or buttons.

This is a spoiler tag!

And this is an !

[spoiler]This is how you create a spoiler tag![/spoiler]
And this is how you creat an [hidden]inline spoiler[/hidden]!
For each, you just surround the desired text with the appropriate tags. Pretty easy, right? If you want, you can get even fancier!

See how fancy that is?

Or you can even !

Go discuss Kingdom Hearts III responsibly!
Hi, everyone!

As we all know, Kingdom Hearts III is scheduled to release on January 25 in Japan, and January 29 in the rest of the world. The long-awaited day is nearly here!

Unfortunately, the nearness of the release day means that content leaks are going to happen—one already has just today. And so here at KH-Vids, effective immediately, we will be enforcing a blanket ban on all leaked Kingdom Hearts III content, both on the forum and on our Discord server. This includes links to as well as discussion of leaked content. Anyone sharing any leaked content from the game will be instantly banned from the forum and the Discord server until the game's release. Don't be that person who ruins the game for others.

Be careful browsing the internet, folks. To make your internet experience easier, LusterZero on Twitter has some tips on how to block YouTube thumbnails or channels.

We look forward to discussing future officially-released KHIII news with you here on KH-Vids!

Writer's Nook.png
Hey guys! As you can see, the Writer’s Nook has been given a makeover! We’ve worked hard to try and create an awesome new place for everyone to post their stories, make new friends, hire out help, and get writing advice for when you face the dreaded block. But there’s a lot of new stuff, so let’s take a quick peek at two of the new sections, hmm?


Here, you’ll be able to officially hire Betas, Editors, and Critiquing Partners to help you in the various stages of story writing! Authors looking for Betas will be able to post advertisements, so that Betas can (hopefully) apply for the chance to review earlier drafts of your book, while Editors and Critiquing Partners will be able to create a page all for themselves, so that authors looking for a little extra help can come find you!

Tips and Tricks

In the Tips and Tricks section, you’ll be able to find or post threads containing advice about anything writing related! How to write a plot twist, tips on overcoming writer’s block, the best methods for outlining stories… If you have some know-how, go ahead and share! And if you’re looking for help and can’t find a thread already, we even have a Q&A board for you to ask your questions and get answers directly!

In addition to these two new sections, we’ve reorganized the Writer’s Nook, so let’s look at what’s changed:
  • Original Works and Fanfiction have been merged into one Written Works subsection, with new Prefixes added to accommodate
  • Archives have been moved into the Written Works subsection
  • The main ‘Writer’s Nook’ page is now free to contain all news and updates about the WN, without being lost among the fanfics
  • The Workshops and Recreation subsection and the Poetry and Lyrics subsection are still here for your enjoyment, though be sure to check out the new rules in the Workshops area to understand what belongs there and what belongs in the new Networking section.
I know the place is gonna look a little bare in there for awhile, but with all these new changes, I hope we’ll be able to get it up and running in a little while, so that we all have a place to share our creativity and grow together as a real writing community!

Happy New Year!
