Kingdom Hearts 3 finally revealed itself at last year's E3 conference. But since then, we've really been left in the dark about what exactly we'll get to see on its release date. No trailers, no concept art, no news, no worlds, no characters. It's getting pretty tough. Well, that is, except for those that got to attend the greatest fan event for Kingdom Hearts of all time.

Those who were lucky enough to go to this event in Los Angeles, California back in 2014, were treated to a fantastic afternoon of Kingdom Hearts adoration. In October, an event was held in The Walt Disney Studios for the release date of the Kingdom Hearts 2.5 HD Remix game for PS3. The crowd was informed prior to the event that there would be a special guest at the show and they really seemed pumped for the whole day!

But they didn't only get one! Yoko Shimomura, Shinji Hashimoto and even Tetsuya Nomura were there! They heard music from the series played live. They got to ask questions about their favourite game series but most importantly, they were treated to a clip of Kingdom Hearts 3. You can check out their reactions to it below!

But now it seems that Disney are coordinating yet another fan event for Kingdom Hearts, but this time, it'll be a little harder to get into (if only my flights to Japan were booked for a few months earlier!!).

To celebrate D23 Expo 2015 Japan, a Kingdom Hearts fan event will be held on November 3 at Cinema Ikspiari, Tokyo Disney Resort. Program information for the event, Kingdom Hearts―The Theater (working title), will be posted on the official Disney website starting in late April.

The last time that this happened, fans at the expo were treated to a brand new exclusive trailer for Kingdom Hearts 3! Lucky fans indeed. But that's not to say we won't hear anything from KH3 until then in the West. After all, E3 is just around the corner, and we'll surely get to see some of the worlds and characters that should feature in Square Enix's next game!

But Square Enix has also given us some news, which says that they've been working on a particular game for some time that will actually get a 2015 release date! We've no idea what it could be!! Maybe an old franchise will be getting a new instalment, maybe a new IP. Or could it really be Kingdom Hearts 3 getting its release date for the XBOX One and PS4 in 2015?

We shall have to wait and see. Are there any lucky fans out there that will be in Japan at the time of this Kingdom Hearts celebration?! How excited are you to pick up this final chapter for the Xbox One or PS4 on its release date? Do you think we could see it in 2015? Let us know in the comments KH3 fans!!
