"The Story" starts to move once again.
Square Enix is also hosting a campaign to give away 13 Kingdom Hearts stained glass pieces. Those interested can enter the giveaway by first following the official Japanese Kingdom Hearts Twitter account, and then choosing their favorite stained glass image from the previews available on the official website for the exhibit. Entrants then post a pre-written message on Twitter with their choice of image and the hashtag #キングダムハーツ15周年. (Kingdom Hearts 15th anniversary).
The exhibit in the station also features a countdown screen with a mosiac of scenes from the various games in the franchise. The timer counts down to the release of Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue in Japan.
Additionally, the exhibit features an area of picture frames featuring small video screens showing various scenes, as well as artwork from the series.
Next to the frames is a large collage featuring all the major characters from the series.
The exhibit both celebrates the 15th anniversary of the franchise and the upcoming release of Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue. The game ships in Japan on the PlayStation 4 on January 12, and in North America and Europe on January 24.
