NEW GAME IN DEVELOPMENT: KINGDOM HEARTS III: At the 2013 Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), Sony, to the immense delight of KINGDOM HEARTS fans, announced that they are developing KINGDOM HEARTS III, the third true installment of the game series for the upcoming Playstation 4 and XBOX One consoles, with Disney. The last true installment, KINGDOM HEARTS II, was released in 2005, so this announcement was a long time coming and has put the property front and center once again, especially since it’s in tandem with two much-hyped console releases. The timing of this announcement and the intensifying buzz about the property is ideal for Yen Press’s KINGDOM HEARTS manga releases.

Fans have long been clamoring to know more about this pair, their friendship, and their work as members of Organization XIII, and the secrets will finally be revealed! Having never been published in this market before, KINGDOM HEARTS 358/2 Days has the overwhelming potential to sell.
MONTHLY RELEASES LEADING UP TO PS3 GAME RELEASE: All of this paves the way for the Sept. 10, 2013 North American game release of KINGDOM HEARTS HD 1.5 ReMIX for the PlayStation 3, a breathtaking high def adventure compiling not only storylines from both KINGDOM HEARTS: FINAL MIX and KINGDOM HEARTS Re: CHAIN OF MEMORIES but leading into KINGDOM HEARTS 358/2 DAYS, the manga adaptation of which Yen Press will publish for the first time in English in November 2013!
