Hello and welcome back to another episode of Kingdom Hearts Union! This bro-cast is brought to you by Branden who is joined once again by Churro and they dive right into the content. As always, first up is the news and there was some exciting information. The guys talk about how the D23 trailer that was shown was actually in engine and how the visuals are said to be in an early state and are still being refined. Nomura also reported on something called Attraction Flow in the battle system for KH3. Unfortunately, we don't know much about it yet. And in typical Nomura fashion, he said that there are new components of KH3 that haven't been revealed yet (vague). After lots of discussion, the guys move onto your responses to the Burning Question from last week which dealt with what secret bosses should be in KH3 (that haven't been in the game already). You did not disappoint with your answers. Don't forget to get your answers in for the new Burning Question which is "What do you hope to see from Kingdom Hearts in 2014?" Next up are your questions which the duo answers, but this time brings a special twist. The guys have gone back into the list of questions that have been asked over the last three years and chose some of the ancient ones to answer!

Enjoy the throwback questions but don't leave just yet. The show rounds out with a kickin' Hollow Bastion remix which you will certainly enjoy. We hope you enjoyed the show and we'll see you again in a few weeks!

Kingdom Hearts Union is back for a special D23 Japan Expo emergency podcast to talk about all the recent Kingdom Hearts news announced! Branden, Churro, Spencer, and Olivia start off by talking about the newly announced Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX. Then we get into the main topic of discussion which is all about the brand new trailer that released for Kingdom Hearts III. This more than makes up for the complete lack of any real news to come out of TGS this year. We also take a look at the interview Nomura had at the event talking about Kingdom Hearts II thanks to Olivia's translation. The Burning Question from the last episode is still the same and in case you forgot is "What character would you like to see as a secret boss in KH3 that has never been in a KH game before?" The ending song this week is also an amazing violin medley from many classic songs in Kingdom Hearts. Be sure to let us know what you thought of all the recent news in the comments below.

E3 for 2013 has come and gone, but we are STILL riding the massive tidal wave that Square Enix stirred up this year and KHU is back for another episode to talk about what we know, what we don't, and what's to come. Branden sits down with the whole gang: Churro, Jackie, and Lauren. Because of the bombshells that were dropped at the conference, the outline for this show has changed a bit to accommodate it! The first part of the show focuses on the raw facts that we know right now. The group goes through information such as the announcement of KH3, the pre-rendered trailer that was shown at E3, being in development for both PS4 and Xbox One, which SE team is developing the game, and the story info that we know right now. Don't worry if you think it's nothing but information dumping; there are rants and tangents a-plenty! The second part of the show, called Interview Review, is a in-depth look and the answers that Nomura has given in the interviews he did at E3 such as the anxiety from the spin offs, some of the gameplay specifics, online elements that might be in the game, and some of the visual elements we might see! Don't forget to answer the Burning Question for the next show which is "What is your favorite cutscene from KH2 and why is it special to you?" The show ends with a wonderful remix from the franchise!

Hello everybody and welcome back to the wonderful world of Kingdom Hearts with this, the 54th episode of KHU! We finally have a full cast of hosts for you this week as Branden sits down with Churro, Jackie, and Lauren. This is the last show before the huge E3 press conference and the gang spends a lot of time talking about expectations for the event! However, before that, they will take you through the news (what little there is). First up is a release date for Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD Remix in the west in early fall of this year which, if you preorder now, you'll get a free limited edition art book! The second piece of news is that Square Enix will be live streaming their booth at this year's E3 event. You can tune in to see everything (at least we think so). And now on to the meat of the show. This episode is filled with your responses to the previous burning question which was seeing what you think Square Enix will be announcing at E3 and what effect will it have on KH. While most of you try to remain positive, we all seem to be in agreement that we don't expect much of anything KH related to make a debut at the conference. However, we'll just have to wait and see. The next burning questions is "What is your favorite cutscene from Kingdom Hearts 2 and what makes it special to you?" And rounding out the show as usual is a wonderful Kingdom Hearts remix that is a great medley of songs from both KH1 and KH2. The next show will be the E3 post show wrap up, so make sure you don't go too far and we'll see you then!

May is here, E3 is right around the corner, and Final Fantasy Union is back again to talk all things Final Fantasy. Darryl sits down with Lauren and Spencer and they get into the nitty gritty. However, even though E3 is a mere couple of weeks away, the gang uses this episode to do something special. They spend a great deal of time talking about their thoughts, likes and dislikes about Final Fantasy 13-2. Nothing in the game is off limits, so this is your official SPOILER WARNING! First off are the characters. The trio spends a great deal of time talking about the three primary characters of Serah, Noel, and Caius while using your comments to help them guide the discussion. They then spend time talking about most of the secondary characters; which ones worked and which ones didn't. Since this is a sequel, they were able to compare the cast in 13-2 to the original 13. Next up, the story and whether it worked or not with the Historia Crux, the different time periods, and time travel. That moved them seamlessly into talking about the gameplay. While it is similar to 13, they had plenty of changes to talk about such the party monster leveling system and limit breaks, the battle engagements, and the level system found in the crystarium. Which parts were better or worse than the original. And then, the music. Each host has their own pick that they talk about while also talking about the soundtrack as a whole! Reactions and preferences are definitely mixed so listen in to hear how! To round out the episode, you'll get a nice remix of a piece from 13-2 that you'll enjoy! Be sure to stay tuned for new FF developments that are expected to come over the next few weeks!

So, if you haven't played the game and don't want to hear the big story points and surprises, you would do well to tread with caution! After going through quite a few of the big spoilers from the game, they move on to the news! This show brings one major update which deals with Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD Remix and the unofficial confirmation of its localization to the west! Take a listen as the crew shares their rather convincing evidence! Next up: your responses to the previous show's Burning Question in which you give us phenomenal ideas of what a KH Valentines Day would look like. There are a couple of wonderful fan-fiction pieces that you'll certainly want to hear! As always, get your answers in for the next question which is "Should Kingdom Hearts continue after the Xehanort Saga? Why or Why not?" The trio flows right into your questions. You can look forward to discussions about whether chocobos should be in the franchise and whether or not is Kairi's character really necessary. It's a great collection of questions with some awesome discussions. But don't stop the show yet, because they round it out with a wonderful remix from KH2 Final Mix. We want to thank you all for supporting and following us for the last 50 episodes and with your help and love, here's to the next 50 shows!

Aside from the numerous Lightning Returns announcements, there are pieces of info about the Final Fantasy X HD remake and the new FF iOS game!

Along those same lines, the crew gives you the new Burning Question for next time which is "Is Square-Enix still your main company for JRPGs?" With all the news from the Square Enix event and all of your wonderful answers to the Burning Question, the gang runs out of time to have a proper questions segment (don't worry, there will one next time).
