'Kingdom Hearts 3' Release Date, Latest News, & Update: 'Kingdom Hearts III' Release Window Announced at D23, at Long Last
At the "Level Up! The Walt Disney Company's Video Game Showcase" panel at D23 Expo in Anaheim, Square Enix finally revealed a release window for its massively anticipated JRPG "Kingdom Hearts 3". Here are the details.
"Kingdom Hearts 3" Release Date Confirmed
The game has been confirmed as scheduled for release in 2018, for PS4 and Xbox One, according to DualShockers. "Kingdom Hearts 3" is the third chapter of the Kingdom Hearts franchise, started with the first game on PlayStation 2, released in March 2002, which incidentally means that this is the 15th anniversary year for the series.
It's only appropriate that, since fans can't get a new mainline game yet, at least they now know approximately when they will be able to play it. The series has earned increasing popularity thanks to the mix of Final Fantasy characters, original ones, and more coming from the Disney universes.
Incidentally, this is also a confirmation that fans definitely fans won't have to wait three years for the game, as alleged by quite a few misleading articles popped up earlier this spring. This was all based on a misinterpretation of Square Enix's latest quarterly financial documents.
"Kingdom Hearts 3" Release New Trailer
If fans want to see more about the game, a brand new trailer was also broadcasted, as The Verge reported. It revealed a new world and new gameplay, while a second trailer was showcased at a concert in Los Angeles during the E3 time as it showed gameplay and story content.
Kingdom Hearts 3 director Tetsuya Nomura says a Nintendo Switch version of "Kingdom Hearts 3" or Xbox One versions of the Kingdom Hearts HD I.5 and II.5 ReMix or Kingdom Hearts HD II.8 Final Chapter Prologue collections could be possible in the future. Still, Nomura said he isn't ruling out "Kingdom Hearts 3" coming to Nintendo Switch eventually.
