HUGE UPDATE: The E3 trailer has been added. It is three minutes of Frozen, Tangled, Toy Story, Monsters, Inc., Hercules, and Wreck-It Ralph gameplay footage. If you are a fan, do NOT miss this. Stick around until the end for a little surprise as well.
Your waiting is almost done, Kyle.
At the first performance of the 2018 Kingdom Hearts Concert Tour, director Tetsuya Nomura dropped the release date bombshell. Kingdom Hearts 3 will release on January 29, 2019. If you live in Japan, you can start kicking some heartless butt on January 25th.
Nomura apologized on Twitter for the delay saying,
“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.”
This is a huge release for Square Enix, and more than a few of us will be thrilled to finally go on another adventure with Mickey and pals.
Jason became terminally addicted to videogames after receiving the NES at an early age. This addiction grew to include PC gaming and was cemented with the launch of the PS2. From then on, he was afflicted with epic RPGs, tense shooters, and deep strategy games, never becoming skillful, but never able to quit. He continues to play games (poorly) and share his passion for them to anyone willing to listen.
