As many of us know, the Kingdom Hearts series manga has not seen an official English release since TOKYOPOP released the second volume of the Kingdom Hearts II manga back in 2008. After losing the license, there was rumor of manga publisher Yen Press to pick the series up. This is the case! As seen from Yen Press's official Kingdom Hearts manga website, they plan to release the following titles for English fans: Kingdom Hearts Final Mix, Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories, Kingdom Hearts II, and Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days. Also to be released is a book of Shiro Amano's artwork for the series. The two volumes of Kingdom Hearts Final Mix are expected to be released this month. Although a bit more expensive than most would like, it is great to see the manga series back in publishing action!

As you may have read, I've created coloring sheets to promote local launch events for Dream Drop Distance. We suggest printing out at least six or so of each coloring sheet and head to your local game store. Ask permission first, so you can hand out these in the store. A trivia sheet will also be available if you'd like to help run a trivia contest at your local store, and you can talk to the store staff about if it would be okay to hand out prizes (please use your own KH supplies for this). Enjoy your copies of Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance!

At the Japan Expo 2012, which took place in France recently, our friends at KHDestiny prepared an interview with Shinji Hashimoto and Yoko Shimomura concerning the musical and production sides of Kingdom Hearts. The interview was made possible by Square Enix France.

With the recent flurry of news for the North American, European and Australian releases of Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance, Dream Eaters have been named and new pictures have been released! Wandanyan has become the Meow Wow, personally I would have preferred Wonder Meow but you deal with what you have... since you can rename Dream Eaters, that's what I'll be doing. Chaos Snake makes a return as a Link Attack and the Pricklemane's special attack is called "Hammer Throw". Release dates have also been out from a long time ago:
- July 20th for Europe
- July 26th for Australia
- July 31st for North America
And an interview with Tetsuya Nomura in the Kingdom Hearts 3D Ultimania is summed up in the following lines:
- There are no plans for a Final Mix for KH3D
- There are no plans for a continuation of Birth by Sleep however there is potential.
- Nomura wishes to see a Pixar World in Kingdom Hearts.
- Multiple titles are currently in production with the Osaka team (The team who made Birth by Sleep and 3D).
- There will be an announcement in the near future regarding the next title.
And according to the Ultimania, we will see a few familiar faces in the new Organization.
Hopefully "near future" means E3 2012 or TGS 2012... we can only hope. Until next time...

It's been a long while since the last post, but so far we have seen what has come to us from the Jump Festa trailer which can be seen on the official website. New worlds such as Country of the Musketeers and Prankster's Paradise have been announced among others. A Tron: Legacy World that is yet to be named shows Rinzler about to battle Sora and a mantis Dream Eater that Riku battles. They also get an entire new wardrobe from the early Data Form with the much more modern style of the movie. Along with this information, more members of Tetsuya Nomura's other game, The World Ends with You, appear in this entry of the Kingdom Hearts series, Shiki, Beat and Joshua appear among others. More information from the V Jump magazine of January shows yet another world, Symphony of Sorcery which is a world entirely based off Fantasia, and is the first time we see Chernabog since Kingdom Hearts, it also features Mickey Mouse as a sorcerer wearing Yen Sid's hat.
In merchandise, there is a brand new bundle for the series's 10th anniversary featuring Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance, Kingdom Hearts Re:coded, Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days, 12 Postcards representing the history of the series visually, a protective case for the 3DS and the box with a special 10th anniversary design, you can check it out here. Along with this there is also a special limited edition, Japanese 3DS available to buy with the game pictured below. And finally, a Wandanyan plushie is also up for sale at Square Enix's e-store, it costs ¥3,800.

Following the highly anticipated Tokyo Game Show 2011, a ton of new information and images have surfaced regarding Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance. As always, a closed-theater trailer was shown, this time featuring Sora in Traverse Town. As in previous games, Donald Duck and Goofy are assisting him as party members. The camera apparently has not seen a tremendous amount of improvement since Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days, and the "DROP" gauge from previous trailers has also disappeared. Traverse Town has also been reportedly fleshed out, expanding far beyond just the three districts. Importantly, however, the game is focused on the mysterious "world buried in sleep", as well as the Mark of Mastery exam for Sora and Riku. The trailer ends with a scene featuring Xehanort and Braig, suggesting the game's connections to Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep.
A playable demo was featured as well, showing Riku interacting with Quasimoto from the world based on The Hunchback of Notre Dame. In this demo, we discover Riku's new double-jump ability. Those who have played the demo say that the combat has improved immensely from Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep, focusing less on animation-focused commands and more on fluid, smooth battling. Both Sora and Riku have access to something similar to the D-Link as well: the Dual Link, which grants different abilities and bonuses based on the party member.
The game has also been confirmed to have slide pad compatibility, meaning that it will take use of the slide pad add-on to the Nintendo 3DS, which itself utilizes a second analog stick.
The game carries over a motif in the Kingdom Hearts series: Sora searching for a friend, this time Riku. Instead, however, Sora finds Neku, the protagonist from The World Ends With You, another game series created by Square Enix, now incorporating a third franchise into Kingdom Hearts. Neku makes a reference to the "Reapers' Game" from his original game, saying he has only forty-three minutes to live unless if he wins this mysterious game. Sora and Riku also are donning new clothes; Sora's shirt has gone to black, whereas Riku is wearing a very light off-white shirt. Riku's hair has also gotten much shorter since the end of Kingdom Hearts II. These can be seen in the poster in the gallery below.
A new enemy has also been introduced in Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance: Dream Eaters. Dream Eaters are new original entities who, just as their name suggests... eat your dreams! This is especially significant in a "world buried in sleep." Two bosses are already known to exist in the game that appeared at the end of the demos for Sora and Riku: a "boxy" enemy with long arms that function as stretchable weapons and a winged flying boss, respectively. There are not the only new creatures, however! Sora is accompanied by two creatures bearing the new crossed heart symbol in this game: a plump blue dog-like creature and an as-of-yet unseen "squirrel-y" creature. Riku is also accompanied by two of these beings: an eccentric, colorful bat and as-of-yet unseen unicorn.
Hopefully this flood of Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance information will break through the drought of Kingdom Hearts information in the last several months. Keep checking back with the Kingdom Hearts Wiki to see our Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance database and coverage expand and grow, and for more news to be posted! A gallery of new images has also been provided below:

More news has been released regarding Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance, as well as a tidbit about HD development on Kingdom Hearts. Nomura has stated that he will be doing an "HD test" of a Kingdom Hearts title, whether already released or unknown, before the series's tenth anniversary next year.
In addition, Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance will have a playable demo at Tokyo Game Show 2011, so look out for videos of gameplay and such in the coming month of September.

The Kingdom Hearts news drought seems to be showing signs of ending, at least to some degree. Kingdom Hearts fan translators have recently finished translating an interview in the weekly Japanese magazine, Famitsu, with Kingdom Hearts series creator and director, Tetsuya Nomura, concerning Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance. The bulleted information below has been collected from the scans, and the paragraphs below summarize the interview.
- Kingdom Hearts 3D is a mysterious title.
- There will be a secret movie.
- The Xehanort Saga will end with Kingdom Hearts III.
- Think of Kingdom Hearts 3D as "The Initiative" before Kingdom Hearts III.
- There will be "answers" about Kingdom Hearts III in Kingdom Hearts 3D.
- Kingdom Hearts 3D is 40-50% done.
- Sora "has not changed."
- The game will focus on the "hidden data" inside of Sora.
- There are characters that will appear in Traverse Town, but their names have been censored. There are two censored names.
The series director has stated that Disney has said that game has a "Japanese feel" in its storyline. While he did consider simplifying the storyline, he was encouraged to keep the complex storyline to compete with other franchises, such as Final Fantasy. Like its basic plot, the game apparently will be designed in a manner that keeps the player thinking and guessing.
The game is about 40-50% complete, and the developing team is currently working on the scenarios in the Disney worlds, which Tetsuya Nomura was somewhat concerned for in being clear enough to understand. He also states that several individual mysteries, both from past games and Kingdom Hearts 3D, will be clarified in the game. The next item on the development agenda is to start recording voices.
Tetsuya Nomura also described a desire to make sure the game is not too drawn out in length and pacing. He plans to introduce a new system to make sure that the pacing is not weakened with lengthy explanations. Finally, he says that Sora fights alongside strange companions in Kingdom Hearts 3D, perhaps suggesting new allies, and that a secret movie is being developed.

Following an emergency roundtable on the IRC, the Kingdom Hearts Wiki has completely revised the way it does affiliations and affiliation requests. From this point forward, interested sites, wikis, channels, etc. should not approach the wiki by contacting one of its major administrators. Instead, we now have a new Requests for Affiliation page, where formal requests to become affiliated with the Kingdom Hearts Wiki shall be made. This helps us keep track of our affiliation requests, as well as standardizes the procedure.
Be sure to keep spreading the word of the new independent Kingdom Hearts Wiki out to interested sites, wikis, and channels! We look forward to gaining more affiliates. In fact, several potential affiliates were discussed during this emergency roundtable. More information on these will be announced at a later date.
 June 12th
Today is a momentous day for our Affiliates list. The Kingdom Hearts Wiki has just partnered with the Nintendo Independent Wiki Alliance (NIWA). NIWA is a collection of Nintendo-covering wikis that are all independently hosted, much like the Kingdom Hearts Wiki. NIWA's wikis and principles stand against faceless operators and the control of a wiki by those who do not truly monitor and lead it. NIWA spans over twenty wikis and continues to grow as the largest independent wiki alliance. Furthermore, while the Square Enix Independent Wiki Alliance (SEIWA) is being constructed under similar principles, we are very proud to be affiliated with NIWA.

Sadly, the new information regarding Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance we were promised by GameInformer magazine was proven to be false at the end of E3. While the trailer from several months ago was shown at the gamers' meet, no new information, screenshots, or footage was released. Hopefully we can expect new information to be released at the Tokyo Game Show 2011 in September. Until then, the news drought scorches on....

Some bad news today, Square Enix has released their roster of games to be featured at E3 on their official website, and it doesn't seem to feature Kingdom Hearts 3D. This is odd, however we'll see at E3 next week...
 May 2011
 May 22th
A small but important tidbit of news interrupts this news drought--Kingdom Hearts 3D is definitely going to be at E3 next month! The Popular Gaming magazine officially confirmed that the game will be featured at E3 2011. While it is still unknown just what will be shown or presented at E3 concerning the game, we will hopefully receive new information on this upcoming and mysterious chapter in the Kingdom Hearts series. E3 2011 will begin on June 8th, 2011, so there's not much longer to wait! All released information will be reported in the Trinity Archives as soon as they are released, so be sure to check back here after E3!
 May 8th
Today, the Kingdom Hearts Wiki has affiliated with another popular YouTube channel devoted to gaming, specifically the Kingdom Hearts series. Please welcome our new affiliate, TheErryK! The channel is owned by our very own Kingdom Hearts Wiki staff member and moderator, Erry. We look forward to affiliating with more YouTube channels, wikis, and other sites!

Greetings from your executive editor! My apologies for the slowness of news; the Kingdom Hearts series is at a bit of a slow point in its history between the releases of Kingdom Hearts Re:coded and Kingdom Hearts 3D, but hopefully news will begin to surface regularly again soon. I'd also like to announce that, after this period of slow news begins to lift, the Trinity Archives will begin to take an approach to not only cover news regarding the wiki, but also news regarding the Kingdom Hearts series in a greater depth than before. Be sure to check back often for news updates!
More importantly, voting for possible logos to represent the Square Enix Independent Wiki Alliance has been opened, so be sure to give us your votes or original logo submissions! For those who do not know of it, "SEIWA" is a planned alliance between multiple independent wikis, such as the new independent Kingdom Hearts Wiki, that is currently in the developing stages. As we get closer to finishing our post-Wikia audit, more news about the creation and growth of SEIWA will be released. We are very excited to pioneer such a huge project, so please give us your support and spread the word!
The voting forum can be found here!

Nearly a year and half ago, February 8th, 2009, the Kingdom Hearts Wiki happily celebrated its 1,000th article's creation. After reaching such a milestone, many of us wondered how 1,000 other Kingdom Hearts-related topics would come in the future (or were actually in existence!) that would have their own article. Well, the wait and wondering is now over! Today, user and administrator DoorToNothing created the 2,000th article of the Kingdom Hearts Wiki, Geo Impact! We sure have grown a great amount since February 2009, have we not?
From the staff, community, and entire Kingdom Hearts Wiki, we would like to thank you readers for all of the support you have given us all these years. We are excited to continue delivering you extensive and up-to-date coverage, as the Kingdom Hearts series marches onward! We're celebrating this momentous moment in our wiki's history and reflecting on what there has been, is, and is to come here, please drop by and leave a message!

Greetings from the writers of Trinity Archives. We hope that our North American and European readers and viewers are enjoying being able to play Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep, after nearly half a year of waiting; we sure know we are!
However, just a week after the game was released in North America, the rumored Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep Final Mix has indeed been confirmed! The game is known to feature all of the formerly exclusive contents of the North American port of the game, as well as several new features, such as Master Eraqus in his armored form and a new secret movie! The game is slated to be released at the beginning of 2011. Be sure to keep up with the Kingdom Hearts Wiki's article on the game for all the updates!
Several forums and discussions are taking place across the wiki regarding Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep Final Mix, particularly in the Twilight Town Library. However, remember that the talk pages of the articles are not to be used for this kind of theorizing, social, and speculation-based conversation. Please do not host these topics on Talk:Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep Final Mix, or they will be removed. Thanks!

Just in time for Birth by Sleep and the impending traffic, we'd like to announce two new administrators and three new moderators.
Troisnyxetienne and Neumannz are now powerful administrators, able to vanquish trolls and dispense noogies of justice. EternalNothingnessXIII, maggosh, and ShardofTruth have been granted the gift of moderation, able to roll back time and move things around like pawns in some sinister game of...wait, sorry.
Anyway, a huge congratulations to these five individuals for their hard work and dedication to the Kingdom Hearts Wiki! Hooray!

Good day to our users and editors, and thank you for your unending efforts in making the wiki a working success.
Today, I would like to announce that BebopKate joins in the administration as our new bureaucrat. This is to take over Hecko X, who announced that he retires as bureaucrat, and is glad to have BebopKate as she has been an excellent contributor and administrator since her inception by him two years ago. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Hecko for all the work he has done for this beautiful Wiki, and hope that whatever future undertakings he takes be laced with success.
As for our good ol' BK, with her as Bureaucrat, I hope the wiki will strive to be a more friendlier place; less conflicts and less troubles will allow for good editors to contribute good articles. BebopKate has an excellent track record, and I personally think of her as the KHWiki's loving matron. Let us pray that BK perseveres with the additional burden on her shoulders and I hope we can see a hard-working and agreeable community with her on tow in the future.
Welcome aboard and Good luck to you, BebopKate!

After about a week of discussion, the Kingdom Hearts Wiki's very own version of the Mirage Arena opens its doors today!
Similar to the Dragon's Neck Coliseum of the Final Fantasy Wiki, the Mirage Arena is a popularity contest between characters, worlds, places, items, weapons and/or gameplay elements. Two links are placed head-to-head with each other per week, and at the end of four months (i.e. sixteen rounds), all the winners of the previous rounds will be pitted against each other in the one and only Joint Struggle.
If you want to go in and be part of the fun, you must have at least seventy-five quality edits in the mainspace, which would be all of the Kingdom Hearts Wiki's articles! To do so, you can hit Special:Editcount and type in your username to see if you've hit the mark. Of course, other factors, like how productive those mainspace edits are, will be taken into account as well when verifying the winner.
Come join in the fun; if you haven't already hit the mark, get editing!

Today is a notable day for the Kingdom Hearts Wiki. Today is the IRC Channel's (#wikia-kingdomhearts) first birthday! Very Special thanks go out to Azul81677 and Yuanchosaan who set the channel up , and to Adola for setting up the channel bot, NumberXVMoogle! Thanks to all channel operators and users; you've made the IRC what it is today! We've had our laughs, our cries, our problems, and much more, but overall it has been one successful year! Here's to another year on the IRC!

With the coming of E3 came announcements of new titles and demos for many video game series, including Kingdom Hearts! Tetsuya Nomura and the Square-Enix booth announced the production of Kingdom Hearts Re:coded and Kingdom Hearts 3D, as well as gameplay and an English trailer for Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep! Kingdom Hearts Re:coded is a remake of Kingdom Hearts coded, but ported to the Nintendo DS! It also is set to include new features, such as multiplayer gameplay, the Deck Command system, and a new secret movie! Kingdom Hearts 3D is a game set to be released on the soon to be released Nintendo DS 3D, capable of three-dimensional gaming! While the placement of Kingdom Hearts 3D in the Kingdom Hearts timeline is very questionable and debatable, it is known that it is being developed by the same team of experts that produced Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep, and that we will have the chance to not only play as Sora, but Riku as well!
Also at E3 were demos of the North American version of Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep, along with the newly released English trailer! New English screenshots are also going to start pouring in to the wiki immediately, so keep your eyes out! Also, seen in the new trailer is the new boss that has been promised: another Xemnas-like Unknown! Just a reminder, the North American version of Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep is set to have new features included that were not present in the Japanese version, such as new Keyblades, new abilities, and Critical Mode.
Below are the new trailers for Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep and Kingdom Hearts Re:coded, as well as three screenshots from Kingdom Hearts 3D!

In case you haven't seen it yet, Game Informer has done an interview with Tetsuya Nomura about Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep and a few other upcoming releases. Unfortunately, the interview refutes earlier information that stated Kingdom Hearts III is currently underway, but does contain some interesting tidbits, including the fact that the North American release, as per other Kingdom Hearts games will have bonus features not found in the original Japanese release, including at least one extra enemy.

Well, in case you haven't noticed yet, we have two long-time editors who have been promoted to full admins; they've already been running around and performing wiki-ly ... wiki-ish ... they fix stuff. A belated congratulations to DoorToNothing and HeartOfOblivion for making it into the surreal world of a Kingdom Hearts Wiki admin!

Today is another day of sorrow and lament for all Kingdom Hearts fans. Just today, the voice actor Eddie Carroll passed away. Eddie Carroll has been the voice actor for the lovable Jiminy Cricket, both in Walt Disney films and in all of his appearances throughout the Kingdom Hearts series. He has been Jiminy Cricket's voice actor for over thirty years, having provided his voice in three Walt Disney films.
As of yet, it is currently unknown who will replace Eddie Carroll as the voice actor for Jiminy Cricket. We wish him the best; he touched our hearts with his talented voice acting for Jiminy Cricket, and shall always be remembered as an adroit voice actor.

Wait, Square-Enix didn't make a Kingdom Hearts: Sora Florida Meets Hannah Montana! It seems that DoorToNothing and BebopKate tricked the entire wiki! And we would have gotten away with it, too, if it wasn't for you meddling kids! From the wonderful community at the Kingdom Hearts Wiki, we hope that your April Fool's Day was prank-filled and enjoyable!

Thanks to every single editor and contributor who has contributed even one time to our growing database; you have all helped get the Kingdom Hearts Wiki to where it is today! Here's to another great year of editing!
In addition, a recent interview with various leaders of Square-Enix's departments revealed the story behind Kingdom Hearts: Sora Florida Meets Hannah Montana! Glad we dodged that bullet, eh? I wonder if anyone can hunt down one of the rare and elusive copies of the game that is still in existence...?

In a recent interview, series director Tetsuya Nomura has stated that there will be three new Kingdom Hearts games in the near future. Two of these will be spin-offs to the main series, and the third will be the long awaited Kingdom Hearts III! That's right, all of you fan-fiction-creating fans, it has finally been announced! Even better, Tetsuya Nomura has stated that Kingdom Hearts III will not be the end of the Kingdom Hearts series; there will be much more to come! One of the two spin-offs is expected to be released this year, but Kingdom Hearts III will not be released until Final Fantasy Versus XIII is released, the current project of Nomura's team.
 March 18th
After a large spot of newslessness, Square-Enix has launched not just one, but two official sites for the upcoming Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep in North America and Europe. The first of these is the long-awaited North American site. Currently, it is bare of any new information or screenshots, though it does have a very beautiful and creative display. Expect this site to update with the North American screenshots, gameplay information, and trailers of Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep.
The second site that Square-Enix recently launched is something new: a Uninversal English site. The site links to information on the game for different countries in Europe, as well as the United States. This port site is assumed to contain links to the European sites once they are launched.
Lastly, word of Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep's worldwide diffusion has begun! Square-Enix has officially announced the game for both North America and Europe, and screenshots have been released from the North American version of the game. Expect these images to quickly diffuse across the Kingdom Hearts Wiki!

The long-awaited Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep has been released in Japan! If you're interested in adding information from the new game to the articles, make sure it is from a credible translation or video, and remember the Spoiler Policy!
 January 2nd
With Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep a week away from its release in Japan (yay!), now would probably be a good time to remind our old editors and new editors alike to take a look at the wiki Spoiler Policy regarding new games. We're all excited, but remember that not everyone wants to know every detail of the game right away, especially when it comes to plot and character elements. Please be mindful and respectful of wiki members that wish to remain unspoiled, especially in non-article areas like the Forums and Talk Pages. Thanks!

In the recently released The Best 30 Games of the Decade list, the top thirty games of the soon-to-end decade were ranked. The original Kingdom Hearts scored 28th on the list, surpassing Gears of War and Ninja Gaiden. Congratulations on making yet another list, Kingdom Hearts!

In the December 2009 issue of Game Informer magazine, the Top 200 Games of All Time list was released, according to the magazine. Kingdom Hearts ranked at 79th, and Kingdom Hearts II ranked at 130th. Both games ranked higher than such popular titles as Assassin's Creed, Call of Duty II, LittleBigPlanet, Pong, and Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island. The Final Fantasy games, which are heavily related to the Kingdom Hearts series, also did very well, putting Final Fantasy XII at 112th, Final Fantasy IV at 80th, Final Fantasy X at 43rd, Final Fantasy VII at 15th, and Final Fantasy VI at 8th. The list was topped with the original NES game The Legend of Zelda at the top of the list.
The magazine also had a small preview article of Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep. Unfortunately, no new information or images were released. However, Game Informer reports that the PSP game's North American release can be expected around mid to late 2010.

Wayne Allwine, the third voice of Mickey Mouse, passed away May 18, 2009, at the age of 62, from complications due to diabetes. He had been the official voice actor of Mickey Mouse since 1977, giving a voice to Disney's mascot in everything from Mickey's Christmas Carol to the Kingdom Hearts series. Allwine loved his work and put joy in the hearts of many during his career, and leaves behind a wife, Russi Taylor, the voice of Minnie Mouse.

Hi, folks. We're making some changes to our User Page policies since some folks are taking advantage of our more lax policies. To make it short and simple, if you have any images that are not Kingdom Hearts related on your userpage, we are giving you a week to save them or store them away elsewhere. On Thursday, April 9th, all non-Kingdom Hearts images will be removed from the wiki. It will still be okay to put non-Kingdom Hearts pictures on your User Page, but they must be stored or hosted on another website, such as PhotoBucket.
Talk boxes and user boxes shouldn't be affected by this, so worry not about your colorful cubes and shiny bubbles. ^_^

Well, we had a bit of a glitch with the Twilight Town Forums...Drake Clawfang discovered the forum categories were mixing with the category for Twilight Town in the game. To make a long story short, your old discussions haven't been deleted; but it will take a while to move them into the proper area, so please bear with us and we'll get it fixed as soon as possible. In the meantime, feel free to post in the Twilight Town Library area.
EDIT: All fixed! Post away as always.
