As its release date looms ever so close, it’s hard not to get excited to finally get our hands on Kingdom Hearts 3 - a full-fledged sequel to the beloved Disney and Square Enix collaboration video game that has been anticipated for 12 years by fans all over the world.
To celebrate its release on Malaysian shores, Gamers Hideout will be holding a midnight launch starting at 10pm on 28 January 2019 at its recently opened Lot 10 branch. Gamers who have pre-ordered the game with Gamers Hideout are able to collect their units there at midnight, and good news for those who’ve been contemplating on pre-ordering: the store will still be accepting last minute walk-in pre-orders before 11:30pm!
Gamers Hideout is also organising several activities for us to enjoy during the launch as we eagerly await the fall of midnight. The activities are open to public and these include The Keyblade Chosen One, Cosplay Photo Session & Giveaway, and Kingdom Hearts Props.
The Keyblade Chosen One offers a total of 9 prizes to be won, including Kingdom Hearts Funko Pop figures and a Pendant Watch. Players are to pick up one key from a key filled clear acrylic box, and test their luck to whether their key could unlock a box that contains one of the prizes.
Cosplay Photo Session & Giveaway will have participants snap a photo with 8 available Kingdom Hearts, Final Fantasy, and Disney cosplayers which are then to be uploaded on Facebook or Instagram with designated hashtags. A lucky winner will have the chance to walk home with a copy a PS4 copy of Kingdom Hearts 3 Deluxe Edition.
Cosplayers aren’t the only ones who can become part of the fantasy. With Kingdom Hearts Props, participants are given the chance to pose for photos with Sora’s Keyblade, Donald’s staff, or Goofy’s shield. As fun as it is to wield a Keyblade, remember not flail the props around or you may actually hurt others.
Eligible to only for those who pre-ordered the game and participated in the aforementioned activities is the The Side Quest, where the first 100 to complete all activities (including pre-ordering the game) will receive a free Funko Pop keychain or Keyblade keychain.
Just a few days left, so be sure not to miss out on the Kingdom Hearts midnight launch by coming in at 10pm on 28 January at Gamers Hideout Lot 10!
