Today Square Enix aired a long TV commercial of the upcoming JRPG Kingdom Hearts III during the Japan vs Uzbekistan Asian Cup soccer match.
The commercial is already available on the developer’s YouTube channel, and you can watch it below.
On top of the trailer, we also get wind of a social media campaign that will let fans share their thoughts about the game and win trips to themed locations. You can read about it below, directly from the press release.
“By spreading messages of love and happiness across social media platforms, fans can enter the sweepstakes beginning today through January 20 for a chance to win one of five exclusive trips inspired by beloved Disney movies.
As the ultimate battle between light and darkness is set to begin with the launch of KINGDOM HEARTS III on January 29, 2019, fans are encouraged to share positive messages with the hashtag #❤❤❤ and #sweepstakes across social media platforms, including Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, for a chance to win unique trips to destinations inspired by fan-favorite Disney films. Prizes include a stay in an Ice Hotel in Sweden (Frozen), a trip to Tokyo (Big Hero 6), a visit to the Parthenon in Greece (Hercules) and more. The more #❤❤❤ participants share, the better chance they will have to win.”
The Share your Heart Out campaign is available only in the United States and Canada, excluding Quebec.
This is not all, as we also learn that the release date of the Kingdom Hearts VR Experience for PlayStation VR has been delayed once again. It was supposed to come tomorrow, but it will be instead released on Jan 23. The second episode will launch sometime in the spring.
