After Five years of waiting since the first teaser was released, Square Enix finally has an official date for the highly anticipated third installment.
Kingdom Hearts 3 will release early next year on January 29th for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. January 25th will be the release date for it in Japan. The original release date was supposed to be scheduled for this year but was delayed. Below is a statement issued by Franchise director Tetsuya Nomura via twitter regarding the delay.
“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,”
As many of you know Disney’s Frozen has been incorporated into the Kingdom Hearts world along with the inclusion of a Simba summon. If you haven’t caught the trailer you can check it out below.
They made sure to release plenty more during the conference including the return of Organization XIII member Xigbar, as well as further story hints. Not to mention a brief appearance by Remi from Ratatouille.
In more extended looks (seen above) we got bits of the Toy Story and Hercules worlds as well. There was also confirmation of a ($230 dollar) collectors edition so get it when you can once it drops in the coming year. And for more on E3 check out our twitter @tehlunchboxpub.
