According to the Japan D23 event, Square Enix revealed that the Gummi Ship, the ship that allows Sora and friends to travel to worlds and fight enemies, will be back, but with adjustments. It is mentioned that the Gummi Ship will have two different types of gameplay. Players will be able to explore in a free-form exploration style and the other gameplay is combat when players will fight enemies.

The people consist of 100 workers and they are are involved in the sections. GameSpot mentions that this does not mean there will be 9 worlds, but it involves the completion of the worlds. The early phase of the worlds is 90% complete, the middle is 60%, but the final is unknown.

Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue Limited Edition unboxing review

Better than never I always say. This is another unboxing posts and it will be super short. This post will be covering the limited edition version to the recent Square Enix game Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue Limited Edition. This game came out on January 24 but since I preordered online, I got this game on Saturday, January 28th. People ordered the Limited Edition receives the game in different cover box and an exclusive Disney Pin.

On the cover of the box, the cover is displayed with the game’s title along with simple patterns and symbols. The game also includes the actual hard case of the standard game with the characters on it. Unlike my Deluxe Edition to the Final Fantasy XV game, the box was cardboard or one of those plastic boxes; it has some bends and it was not a steelbook case. The pin was pretty to cool have. It was very small and it was my first pin I ever got.


The Limited Edition pretty cool to have especially if you are a Disney fanatic. If you are pin lover, this is a must have and if you want to own a second pin to the previous one if you preoredered Kingdom Hearts HD. 2.5 Remix. If you are not much pin fan, you are better off just buying the standard game. Getting this edition doesn’t come with any dlcs not even an artbook like 1.5. If you want this game, you better off with the standard.

TGIF Friday Funny 92: May your hearts be your guiding key


Thank God it’s Friday! Welcome back for another episode of TGIF Friday Funny. This is Matthew and I am back with more funny pictures. In this episode I want to dedicate this to another popular game series. The same company who did Final Fantasy XV is back with another game but it’s not Final Fantasy. Along with Final Fantasy, the popular series Kingdom Hearts is back with a new collection game and this is one is different than the previous collections. The new game is Kingdom Hearts HD II.8: Final Chapter Prologue. The game is expected to come out on January 24th for PS4 only.

This game includes he following:

Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance HD: An HD remake to the 3DS game Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance. The game will be on the PS4 under the title Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance HD. A game where the story takes place after KHII and Sora and Riku enter the Sleeping Worlds and enter the Mark of Mastery to become Keyblade Masters.

Kingdom Hearts x Back Cover: Told through cinematic cutscenes, this part of the story takes place before Kingdom Hearts begins and tells the story through the eyes of Keyblade Masters and bearers. This story shapes the future of the Kingdom Hearts story.

Kingdom Hearts 0.2: Birth by Sleep – A Fragmentary Passage: Taking place after the events of Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep, Keyblade master Aqua is still trapped in the Realm of Darkness for 10 years. Players will play as Aqua and dwell through the darkness and fight the Heartless and escape.

This is what the game collection will have. KH2.8 will serve as a prologue to the upcoming anticipated game Kingdom Hearts III. Like any other fan, I am excited to play this game. I already reserved my copy for the Limited Edition game and I bought the new soundtrack of Simple and Clean by Utada Hikaru. The soundtrack is called Simple and Clean (Ray of Hope Mix).


Last but not least, 2017 marks the 15th anniversary of the Kingdom Hearts series. Also, keep an eye on the PSN store because Square Enix will be adding Sora from Kingdom Hearts for the spinoff game World of Final Fantasy.

Now, let’s begin this post with a smile, my seekers of light and darkness!

Anime News: One Piece film in US/Canada! Pokemon anime on Disney!! Final Evangelion

One Piece

Revealed at IGN, FUNimation released the English Dub trailer to the Eiichiro Oda’s film One Piece Film: Gold. The trailer reveals the English Dub cast for returning characters like the Straw Hat Crew and new voices for these new movie characters. FUNimation announced that they will screen this movie in English Dub on January 10-17 in the United States and Canada. It’s unknown if they will also do a English Subtitled version.

Here is the plot according to FUNimation:

The Straw Hat pirates are hitting the big screen once again in an all-new high-flying adventure! The popular series that has captivated fans all over the world unfolds a new saga in the highly anticipated movie, One Piece Film: Gold.

The glittering Gran Tesoro, a city of entertainment beyond the laws of the government, is a sanctuary for the world’s most infamous pirates, Marines, and filthy rich millionaires. Drawn by dreams of hitting the jackpot, Captain Luffy and his crew sail straight for the gold. But behind the gilded curtains lies a powerful king whose deep pockets and deeper ambitions spell disaster for the Straw Hats and the New World alike.


Announced today, the Pokemon Company International announced that the new upcoming Pokemon anime, Pokemon Sun & Moon, will be broadcasted in the U.S. at the channel Disney XD. The anime will begin on December 5th along with the movie Pokemon the Movie: Volcanion and the Mechanical Marvel. The first two episodes will be premiered at this day. Also announced, Disney XD confirmed that they have the rights to the previous 19 seasons and 15 movies.



It has been a long time since we heard the Evangelion anime. In a interview with UK Anime Network, animator director Takeshi Honda mentions that they have recently started to work on the final Evangelion movie this October. In his words, this is what he said:

“We’re actually working on the new Evangelion film right now. We’re working hard and it’ll come out eventually, so thanks for all of your patience – please continue to be patient, because it’s going to be the last episode.”

In a comment in a another interview, he is hoping that this last film will officially conclude Evangelion and also retire. It is hard for him to draw as he gets older.

TGIF Friday Funny 70: Long Live the King!

TGIF! Thank God it’s Friday!

Welcome to another silly episode of TGIF: Friday Funny! I am the king of my blog and rule the lands of what I write. I offer entertainment to my subjects. My kingdom has also showed support for other kingdoms. As king, I only bring my kindness and joy to those who seek it. I am the king of Matt-in-the-Hat but there is a king above me and His name is God. God is the king of kings!

I created this title from the upcoming movie Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV.

Before we begin, let me say couple of things. In recent news, Square Enix confirmed that the upcoming video game Final Fantasy XV will be delayed until November 29. The game was originally set to be released on September 30 but according to the game director, he said wanted to make the game didn’t suffer from bugs and he wants player to get the full experience on the long awaited game. This is good and bad news for players because even though Square Enix is trying to give the best experience, players (like myself) will have to wait for couple of months before it’s finally released. In the meantime, Square Enix released a soundtrack that includes the well-known song Stand by Me by “Florence + the Machines” from the trailer “Reclaim Your Throne” available for purchase in Android Google Play and iTunes.

Also, if you have been following Square Enix, you will know that today is the movie release of Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV. Here is what the plot based on Square Enix Description:

“The magical kingdom of Lucis is home to the hallowed Crystal, but the menacing empire of Niflheim will stop at nothing to make it theirs. War has raged between the two for as long as most can remember.

King Regis of Lucis commands an elite force of soldiers dubbed the Kingsglaive. Wielding their king’s magic, Nyx Ulric and his fellow glaives stand before the crown city of Insomnia, fighting to stay the inexorable advance of Niflheim’s imperial army.

Before the overwhelming military might of the empire, King Regis can only salvage his kingdom by accepting an ultimatum—he must cede all lands outside the crown city, and see his son, Prince Noctis, wed to Lady Lunafreya, the former princess of Tenebrae now captive of Niflheim.

As the war of wills rages, the machinations of Niflheim transform Insomnia into an awe-inspiring battleground, pulling Nyx into a struggle for the very survival of the kingdom.”

The movie is today and if you are near around this area, you can watch this. The movie is expected be released for Blu-Ray around the fall but people who preordered the Deluxe Edition to Final Fantasy XV, will now be getting a copy for free once the game comes out.

Stay tune for a special presentation at the end of the post. Without further delay, your king commands this post to commence! Bring out the best entertainment!

To end this post, I want to make a special shout out to one of my colleagues. Her name is Alison Turman (August 17) and she is a great friend I know in my classes. We met in a philosophy class  and then we had the same classes again English Writing courses. What makes her interesting is her writing skills and story telling. She is also a big fan of Sailor Moon and absolutely love Disney. Just like me, we were both 90s kids. She enjoys the classic cartoons! So now, in front of everyone here in the web, I want to say this… Happy Birthday Alison. Enjoy these clips I found for you!


I hope you enjoyed this Alison and God bless you. Happy Birthday!!

Bye everyone! 🙂

Friday Funny 60: Happy Birthday Ezra!!

Happy Birthday!

TGIF! Thank God it’s Friday! Welcome back everyone for another exciting episode of Friday Funny. In this episode, I decided to do a special blog post to my closest friend in California, Ezra Cabral! Today is his birthday and I decided to share this moment with everyone else here. To those who don’t know, I will tell you a quick story about how we met and about him:

I met my friend Ezra long time ago in grade school. We had the same class and teacher together but we never actually became best friends until the sixth grade. We remained close together in middle school and up to high school. However, after freshman year, I moved to a program in high school and he went to a different high school. He went to a church and high school and I went to a program where I took college and high school classes. We still talked to each other through calls and messaging. In the summer, we always hung out and each others homes and played video games. We played anime games like Naruto, One Piece and Bleach and Call of Duty. He got me and my brother into Call of Duty haha. We have been chatting and hanging all the way to even college. Now that we are both reaching the end of college, he is leaving the state to complete some summer courses and graduate faster. He will come back in July. Thank God, my summer will be boring without him XD.

Ezra Cabral is guy every person should have as a friend. He is cool (probably cooler than me) and he has great knowledge on history and World War history. If you ask him a question about World War II, he will answer it in a heartbeat. He is a great guy with some much compassion and love for others and he knows how to make people laugh when you are feeling down. If you like anime like Naruto, DragonBall Z or Sword Art Online, he can start conversation with you anytime. He also enjoys a good laugh of the TFS DragonBall Z  and Hellsing Ultimate abridged series (I introduced it to him).

Last but not least, he is also a writer. He wants to write stories and become an author. He told me about his works and they sound great. If you like fantasy stories, then this guy will write up a story that will catch your attention. One of these days, he will become a great novelist.

If you got to know Ezra in person, he is a friend that won’t let you down. To me, he is more than a friend, he is my brother!

Before I get sentimental, let’s begin the celebration! (Warning: this is a huge post!)


Since this Ezra’s birthday, here are some funny clips from TeamFourStar!

To end this post, here is some songs about friendship:

Well, I guess that’s all folks. Happy Birthday Ezra and I hope to see you soon my friend. I will pray for you and I hope the summer school will be easy for you. Once you return, let’s hang out and catch up with some stuff. Let’s play some Call of Duty.

Happy Birthday and Aloha Ezra 🙂 !
