After what seems like a lifetime (but has actually been 5 years) Kingdom Hearts 3 is finally being released on January 29th, 2019. It will be releasing on PS4 and Xbox One. Square Enix has announced that the game will be released 5 days earlier in Japan on January 25th.
As many fans are aware, the game was slated for a 2018 release date and the franchise director, Tetsuya Nomura, has apologized for the delay, and asks fans to be just a little more patient. He later thanked them for understanding that they need just a bit more time.
Nomura later went on to say “We’ve announced the release day for KINGDOM HEARTS III ahead of E3 at the KINGDOM HEARTS Orchestra -World Tour-. I’m sorry that we’re asking for a little more time than initially planned. Please look forward to other information, including a few trailers at E3. Thank you,”
Kingdom Hearts is an incredibly beloved series and fans have been more than patient when it comes to this game. Although they won’t be getting it in 2018, I’m positive many are just happy to finally have a release date.
Square Enix has already teased some of the worlds our heroes will be traveling to. Worlds such as Toy Story, Monster INC, Hercules, and Wreck it, Ralph. I’m sure we will see more tomorrow when the new trailer is unveiled. For all things Kingdom Hearts, stay savvy everyone.
