Square Enix began streaming three videos on Sunday that preview the three pre-order keyblade bonuses players can receive for the Kingdom Hearts III game. Players will receive the "Dawn Till Dusk" keyblade by pre-ordering from 7-Eleven stores in Japan (or from Amazon outside of Japan), the "Phantom Green" keyblade by pre-ordering the game digitally for Xbox One, or the "Midnight Blue" keyblade by pre-ordering the game digitally for the PlayStation 4.

Dawn Till Dusk (strengthens fire magic)

Phantom Green (strengthens thunder magic)

Midnight Blue (strengthens blizzard magic)

Those who achieve certain goals in the mini-games area of the Kingdom Hearts Union Cross smartphone game will also receive a code for a Starlight keyblade. Square Enix announced on Friday that the score goals to achieve to get the code are now halved.

Square Enix will release the game on January 25 in Japan for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and on January 29 in the West. Confirmed worlds include Big Hero 6, Toy Story, Tangled, Monsters, Inc., Pirates of the Caribbean, Frozen, and the returning Olympus Coliseum and Winnie-the-Pooh worlds. Square Enix will release postgame video content in the first few days after the game is released.

Music producer Skrillex, singer Hikaru Utada, and record producer Poo Bear are collaborating on the opening theme song "Face My Fears." Utada is also performing the ending theme song "Don't Think Twice" (the song with Japanese lyrics is titled "Chikai" or "Oath"). The game's English audio will also feature returning cast members reprising their roles from various Disney films.
