Yesterday Square Enix announced the inauguration of a “Memorial Clock” dedicated to the celebration of the 15th anniversary of the Kingdom Hearts series, that will happen on on March 28th. The clock is now on display at the Shinjuku station of the Marunouchi line in Tokyo, together with a lovely art gallery and a mural featuring the characters of the series.
The clock’s quadrant is made of gorgeous stained glass, and it’s surrounded by twelve more pieces of stained glass artwork, with an animated screen featuring a countdown pointing to the midnight between January 11th and January 12th, which will mark the release of Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue in Japan.
Unfortunately, this won’t be a permanent exhibition, but it will be removed on January 15th, even if the stained glass artwork will live on in the houses of twelve lucky Japanese fans, that will be able to win each piece via a Twitter contest on the celebration’s official site.
If you want to see what the whole thing looks like in real life, you’re in luck, as several Twitter users have posted pictures and a video taken during their visits to the station this morning. You can check them all out below.
