Series composer Yoko Shimomura will be in attendance at some of the performances. Performances will also have exclusive merchandise and a special-edition CD for sale.

The official site for the concerts also stated that there will be a "renewed show" in 2019 to celebrate the release of Kingdom Hearts III.

The first world tour celebrated the 15th anniversary of the Kingdom Hearts franchise last year. Other celebrations included a temporary clock and art exhibition inside Shinjuku Station in Tokyo, and a collaboration café in Tokyo and Osaka.

Kingdom Hearts III is slated for both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles this year. Epic Games is assisting with the game's development, using Unreal Engine4. Hikaru Utada is returning to perform the game's theme song "Don't Think Twice" (the Japanese version of the song is titled "Chikai" or "Oath").

If you're looking for other Kingdom Hearts goodies to tide you over until Kingdom Hearts III releases, Square Enix revealed three new Bring Arts figures last month of Sora and Riku. The figure of Riku features him in his new Kingdom Hearts III outfit, and the two figures of Sora feature him in his Kingdom Hearts II Halloween Town and Christmas Town outfits. Square Enix will reveal date and pricing information about the figures at a later date.
