- We’re Looking for New Content Writers!
Hello everybody! We here at Destiny Islands love the KINGDOM HEARTS franchise with all our … hearts (haha). However, the franchise has gotten pretty big over the 15 years since the original game’s release. We’ve done our best to keep up with it all, but alas, we are only a team of two people. In an effort to crank out as much game coverage as possible, we are putting out an open call for any and all who are willing to help us generate new content. First and foremost, understand that this will be on a volunteer basis. Destiny Islands is a free website, after all, so we would not be able to pay anybody (we ourselves don’t even get paid). We’re looking for people with a passion for KINGDOM HEARTS and who are willing to work for that passion alone. Specifically, we’re looking for people willing to generate content for: - KINGDOM HEARTS Final Mix - KINGDOM HEARTS II Final Mix - Birth by Sleep Final Mix - Differences between PS2, PS3, and PS4 releases - KH 3D Dream Drop Distance - KH HD Dream Drop Distance - KINGDOM HEARTS Union X - Any other game content currently missing from our site Familiarity with WordPress is preferred, but not required. Some basic HTML and CSS coding would be helpful as well, but again, not a deal-breaker. Mostly, we’re just looking for raw content that we would then go through and edit/format for publishing on the site. If you are interested in applying, you can contact us directly through any of the following means: - Let us know in the comments below - PM us on our Facebook page - DM us on our Twitter - Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks The Destiny Islands Staff

KH I.5 + II.5 News January 22, 2017 KINGDOM HEARTS HD I.5 + II.5 has officially been rated E10+ by the ESRB for Fantasy Violence, Mild Blood, and Use of Alcohol. The full details can be read below: This is a compilation of action role-playing games, based on the Kingdom Hearts franchise, in which players assume the roles of young warriors trying to stop a destructive power. Players use key-shaped swords, magic spells, and attack cards to defeat classic Disney villains (e.g., Jafar, Ursula, Hades) and fantasy creatures (e.g., dragons, magical armor, shadow imps) in melee-style combat. Battles are accompanied by cries of pain and bursts of light; enemies generally disappear amid colorful orbs when defeated. Some sequences allow players to shoot projectiles from a first-person perspective; a handful of cutscenes depict characters dramatically dissolving into mist after being struck by magical swords or blasts of energy. One sequence depicts red bloodstains on coins. January 27, 2017 A KINGDOM HEARTS 15th Anniversary Collector's Box has been announced as a JP Square Enix e-Store exclusive for fans who pre-order KH I.5 + II.5. The box features the artwork of all three HD collections displayed as a triptych connecting all three artworks into one cohesive piece, as well as a mural featuring many of the prominent KINGDOM HEARTS characters from the series so far. You can view the product images below (click to enlarge). The box itself does not seem to contain any games, but rather acts as a Collector's Edition case to store your already-purchased copies of KH I.5 + II.5 and KH II.8. No word yet on whether or not this box will also be released internationally. January 28, 2017 The official box artwork for KH I.5 + II.5 has been revealed through an Amazon.com posting. As confirmed in a previous interview, the box art features no new artwork for the combined collection, but instead shows the previous illustrations from their original Playstation 3 releases. Miscellaneous KH News January 9, 2017 Shinjuku Station in Japan opens up a KINGDOM HEARTS 15th Anniversary Memorial Stain Glass Clock Exhibit. The exhibit included a beautiful stain glass clock featuring the iconic KINGDOM HEARTS stain glass artworks (including several new ones). A mural featuring many of the series' prominent characters was also displayed on one of the walls of the station. And finally, a countdown clock to the Japanese release of KH II.8 was also featured. You can click any of the images below to enlarge them. January 12, 2017 Sora has officially been released in Japan as a DLC Champion for WORLD OF FINAL FANTASY coinciding with the release of KH II.8! The DLC is free to download on Playstation Store from today until March 31, 2017. January 24, 2017 The Sora DLC for WORLD OF FINAL FANTASY has been released in North America and Europe. Here's a look at Sora's first feature in a Final Fantasy game, uploaded by Square Enix UK's official YouTube Channel. https://youtu.be/b-xE7XzdMRo Official Funko has announced and unveiled pictures of KINGDOM HEARTS Pop! Vinyl Figures and Keychains at the 2017 London Toy Fair. So far, the set includes only KINGDOM HEARTS versions of Disney characters, and no plans for original KINGDOM HEARTS characters have been announced. You can check out images of the full line below. It seems like Mickey, Donald, Goofy, Chip & Dale, and Pete, as well as the Keychain versions of Mickey, Donald, and Goofy will be available at most stores that typically sell Pop! Vinyl figures. Meanwhile, the Magician Donald will be a Hot Topic Exclusive, and the Captain Goofy will be a GameStop exclusive.

A new Shop Deal has been added to the North American version of KINGDOM HEARTS Unchained χ, featuring two new amazing Medals! The deal will be running from December 16, 2016 until January 7, 2017, and costs the typical 3000 Jewels per pull. Like several of the previous Shop Deals in December 2016, this deal guarantees 10 Epic Medals (8 5★ or higher Medals and 2 6★ Medals). The two 6★ Medals will also have half their Special Attack Bonus already filled in! But the big draw here is the Illustrated Xion Medal, which players have a small chance to draw with Boosted Strength! If you're having a hard time pulling Illustrated Xion, you're guaranteed to pull it within 5 pulls, instead of the usual 10! Also, setting Illustrated Xion as your Shared Medal changes the background music on the home screen to Xion's Theme. But that's not all! If players manage to unlock the Special Attack Bonus on Illustrated Xion before January 10, 2017, they'll be treated to the ultra-rare Key Art #1 Medal with 2 dots filled in on its Special Attack Bonus! Key Art #1 is a very powerful and useful Medal to have in your arsenal, as it has 0 cost and refills 7 Gauges! Players will only receive one Key Art #1 Medal, no matter how many Illustrated Xion Medals they unlock the Special Attack Bonus for, but players will get a chance to acquire more in subsequent 358/2 Days Deals, coming next week and the following week as well! Full details for Illustrated Xion and Key Art #1 will be added to our Medals Archive as soon as they are made available! Will you be trying to add these Medals to your collection!?

- New KH II.8 HD FCP TGS2016 Trailer, Box Art, and International Release Date
Just officially released a few hours ago (4am EST to be precise), a brand new trailer for Kingdom Hearts II.8 HD Final Chapter Prologue has been released! The trailer showcases all three titles that are included in the PS4 bundle (Kingdom Hearts HD Dream Drop Distance, Kingdom Hearts 0.2 ~A Fragmentary Passage~, and Kingdom Hearts χ Back Cover), with particular emphasis on the two new titles. Viewers might immediately notice a new remixed "Simple and Clean" by Utada Hikaru that is simply awesome, as well as new scenes shown from the playable Aqua portions of the bundle and from the Kingdom Hearts χ cinematic! In one new scene, it appears that Aqua encounters the Magic Mirror from Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, indicating that Dwarf Woodlands might also be a playable section of 0.2, in addition to the previously revealed Castle of Dreams. This raises the question as to whether or not Enchanted Dominion will also be featured during this title to complete the original trio from Birth by Sleep. The game has also been revealed to have some level of DLC available, though the details surrounding that have not been officially released yet. You can view the full trailer below, which also confirms a release date (albeit, slightly delayed) for the title. Kingdom Hearts II.8 HD Final Chapter Prologue will be released on January 12, 2017 in Japan, and January 24, 2017 Internationally. https://youtu.be/4gKAR0uRZZ0 Lastly, official International Box Art has been revealed for the game, which you can view below, courtesy of our friends at KH13.com. As always, keep it right here on Destiny Islands for more Kingdom Hearts coverage!

- KH 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue Gets a New Trailer, and a Release Window!
With E3 2016 just beginning, Square-Enix treated fans this morning to a brand new trailer featuring brand new cutscenes and gameplay from Kingdom Hearts 2.8 HD Final Chapter Prologue! The trailer showcases details on all three games included in the Playstation 4 bundle, Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance HD, Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth by Sleep ~A Fragmentary Passage~, and Kingdom Hearts χ Back Cover. You can view the trailer below: https://youtu.be/J_bhXcjU9AE The most notable entries in the bundle are definitely Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth by Sleep ~A Fragmentary Passage~, which continues the story of Aqua's adventures in the Realm of Darkness, and Kingdom Hearts χ Back Cover, a cinematic retelling of the important events from Kingdom Hearts Unchained χ. Both games feature the new updated graphics based on the Unreal Engine 4 that is being used in the development of Kingdom Hearts III. Speaking of Kingdom Hearts III, the very end of the trailer above features a brief message on the development of one of the most anticipated upcoming games in Square's roster. After unveiling the December 2016 release window for Kingdom Hearts 2.8 HD Final Chapter Prologue, a quick message flashes, revealing that new information regarding Kingdom Hearts III will be released this upcoming winter, most likely around the same time as the release of Kingdom Hearts 2.8. Could this new information be revealed at Jump Festa 2016, or could this be the unveiling of a new Kingdom Hearts fan event where news will be released? Only time will tell, but we'll wait with great enthusiasm and anticipation!

- Kingdom Hearts Big Head Mode Hack
The original Kingdom Hearts is even funnier with big head mode, a silly hack produced by MNHStudios and uploaded to YouTube. With a few hex edits to the Kingdom Hearts ISO it's possible to make all the characters have... well, big heads. The following video shows what this effect looks like when applied to a few distinct cutscenes: the Destiny Islands trio cutscenes and the Traverse Town meetup with Donald & Goofy. Check it out below. I guarantee you'll at least get a hearty chuckle.
