Yen Press Localizes Kingdom Hearts: The Novel, Releasing March 2015

Last March, Yen Press announced that they would resume localizing Shiro Amano’s manga adaptation of the Kingdom Hearts series. The community was overjoyed by the news, as the series had been left unfinished by the hands of Tokyopop, and had been yearning for years for a new publisher to take over. However, everyone desperately also wanted Tomoco Kanemaki’s novelization of the series, fleshing out each character with new backstories that were never touched upon anywhere else. At the time, Yen Press had stated that they would be focusing only on the manga, but if fans responded favorably to the manga, they would consider releasing the novels as well.

All that waiting and support has finally paid off, as today, it was discovered on Yen Press’s official website that KINGDOM HEARTS - THE NOVEL would be releasing in March 2015!

by Shiro Amano

Coming March 2015 | ISBN: 978-0-316-26019-0 | $16.00 ($18.00) | 300 pages | 5-1/2″ x 8-1/4″ | Teen

On the Destiny Islands, three children–Sora, Riku, and Kairi–are living out their peaceful, carefree lives while yearning for whatever lies beyond the great ocean.

Final Fantasy 3ds news wrap up


With TGS among us we have lots of game news coming. Square has lots of Final Fantasy to show off and we actually get Final Fantasy stuff so it doesn’t crush my soul to think about it. First off they are making a 3D classic kind of thing for Final Fantasy 1 to release on the Eshop. This marks the 1,000,000 time they are getting people to pay for Final Fantasy 1. However, most people won’t be paying for it because it comes free with the first printing of Final Fantasy Explores (In Japan).


Speaking of Final Fantasy Explores they have uploaded tons of videos showing off things of explores. The really exciting news though is that the game is getting a demo with online play attached. It lets you play through the first few stages locally or online with friends. I’m super excited for that because it shows confidence in the product to throw the start of a game out say “Here’s the game uncensored for the first bit, my games so good you will want to buy the full version.”  I love that and can’t wait to give that a spin. They also showed off more Trance transformation’s. Terra, Lighting, and Squall now join cloud as people you can become in this state. It’s also now confirmed you keep the weapon you were using in trance state meaning it doesn’t change up your play style really but instead just gives the buffs. In addition to that Beastmaster class was added to the game to pile on to the already pretty large list of classes.
