The long-awaited arrival of Kingdom Hearts III is almost here, and already the highly rated reviews praise the highly anticipated game of Square Enix. But just because media received copies early and the entire game has already appeared in Japan does not mean that it is free for everyone as the studio wants to protect the integrity of the game in the streaming scene.
Before the Streamers begin their adventure, you must abide by the following rules, including blocking the music and other policies:
This game is copyrighted. The copyright lies with The Walt Disney Company and a collaboration of authors representing The Walt Disney Company. In addition, the copyright of certain characters lies with Square Enix Co, Ltd.
. You can stream the game in non-commercial contexts. However, using the streams of the game to provide or listen to the music primarily is also prohibited in such non-commercial contexts.
For more information on the streaming conditions of the game, please see the official website of Kingdom Hearts.
As already mentioned by Kotaku, this spot is not listed on their main site at Square Enix. When many aimed to clarify what exactly "non-commercial" use means, the studio's PR representatives could not give a clear answer. It's a bit strange, but since the full game has seen a full release elsewhere, it makes sense that they want to protect it. Hopefully, their earlier claim to revisit various timed releases will be affected, and this confusion can be avoided.
If fans can try anything new, release Kingdom Hearts III on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on January 29th. The reviews have already started and so far everyone is excited!
