A stronger, more mellow, and deeper version of "The Other Promise" appears in drammatica -The Very Best of Yoko Shimomura-, which features Yoko Shimomura's most popular work. "The Other Promise" is also featured in the Piano Collections Kingdom Hearts.
"The Other Promise" is heard in all trailers for Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days, as well as on the official site of the game. It was rumored that "The Other Promise" would be the theme song to Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days, but it was revealed in an interview that the game's theme would be "Sanctuary", as it is in Kingdom Hearts II. It is heard in Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days when Xion and Axel face off.
In Kingdom Hearts III, "Roxas's Return" plays when Roxas appears to save Sora, Kairi, Lea, and Xion from death at Xemnas's hands. "Hearts as One", a triumphant orchestral medley of "The Other Promise", "Vector to the Heavens", "Organization XIII", "Sora", and "Dearly Beloved" plays in the battle against Saïx.
