OK technically it’s a delay, but there is an actual date!
At E3 2013, Kingdom Hearts 3 was officially confirmed to be in production. It had already been 8 long years since devouring Kingdom Hearts 2, and like much of the community couldn’t wait for the next ‘real’ installment.
For months, we have had the confirmed release window of 2018 from Square Enix. Selfishly, I was just praying it didn’t come out at the end of October – it’s hard to devote console time to a game while at PAX Aus!
But yesterday, ahead of the official Square Enix presentation (because no one is waiting this year), the official @kingdomhearts twitter page dropped this little gem:
Considering I was already preparing for a late December release with the 2018 timeline, an extra month isn’t too much to ask for, especially as it comes with a solid date!
It’s a shame I won’t be spending my holiday break hip deep in Kingdom Hearts 3, but I am sure there will be plenty of other games fighting for my attention. Even if somehow I don’t get any new games between now and the end of the year, my backlog is still sitting there silently watching me.
Oh, and if I am being completely fair, there was another important announcement today in regards to Kingdom Hearts 3. For the first time ever, Kingdom Hearts is coming to XBox. It will be interesting to see if 1.5 and 2.5 will also be re-released as an XBox master as well 🙂
Until next time,
