It’s done! No more delays….we will definitely be getting Kingdom Hearts 3 on its latest posted release date, January 29. Director Nomura confirmed the game’s gold status in a tweet this morning:
I’m proud to unveil an extended version of the trailer that’s been playing in NA cinemas. And guess what? We’ve wrapped up development of
#KingdomHearts III! If you haven’t had the chance yet, now would be a good time to prep by playing 1.5+2.5 & 2.8. See you next month! – Nomura
As he said, Square is marking the game’s gold-ness with a new two-minute trailer. It’s a good one, showing off all the work the team has put into Kingdom Hearts 3. Jack Sparrow doesn’t look as Uncanny Valley as he previously did, and the Toy Story parts could be mistaken for the real movie.
Square recently repackaged the HD versions of Kingdom Hearts 1, 2, and its various spinoffs into “The Story So Far” for PS4. Nomura recommends replaying the two existing main games in the trilogy (plus 2.8) before diving into game #3. I’m actually attempting to do this right now. I’m skeptical it can be done in the time remaining, especially with so many other games coming out between then and now….but we’ll see.
Kingdom Hearts 3 comes to Playstation 4 and XBox One January 29, 2019.
