To celebrate Kingdom Hearts‘ 20th anniversary, Disney has created a themed hotel room at the Tokyo Disney Resort with a secret. Inside the room is a treasure chest that has “something special” for fans. Since visitors have been able to stay in the room since January 6, it was only a matter of time before the item was revealed. However, its meaning is causing a bit of confusion amongst fans of the franchise.
What is the special item?
Photos of the item are embargoed until April 28 when the hotel event has ended, but that hasn’t stopped Twitter user @aitaikimochi from posting a description of the keyblade that can be found in the treasure chest. The Oathkeeper keyblade is almost an exact replica of its in-game counterpart although there’s one difference: the keyblade has a blue paopu fruit instead of a yellow paopu fruit.
Fans are now wondering whether this has some sort of hidden meaning that is due to be revealed in the upcoming Kingdom Hearts 20th anniversary event on April 10. Creator Tetsuya Nomura is known for hiding little clues and easter eggs in the weirdest of places, which means this isn’t as strange a theory as it sounds.
For Kingdom Hearts theory crafters, details on the hotel room:
1) Oblivion opens room door
2) Treasure box contains Oathkeeper
3) Oathkeeper Kairi charm is blue on both sides, no Sora face
4) Center of Kairi charm is a gold circle
5) Rest of Oathkeeper colors is a perfect replica pic.twitter.com/ZsNsrXjKKJ

As seen in the image above, the Oblivion keyblade also plays an important part in the hotel room as it’s the actual key to open the door. Unlike Oathkeeper, this keyblade is an exact replica and there’s no embargo on posting its image. Those who are curious about the hotel room itself should check out the full Twitter thread for more photos and videos.
In other news, rumors have started over whether Gran Turismo 7 has been delayed again after a media preview event was canceled at the last minute without reason. Elsewhere, FromSoftware has told players how long it will take them to beat the main story of Elden Ring, although the time doesn’t include any of the side content and optional missions.
