News: New Kingdom Hearts 3 Details Revealed At E3

Feb 21, 2018
There is so much Kingdom Hearts 3 at E3. No matter where you look, there's Sora, Donald and Goofy, debuting yet another trailer during yet another press conference. Three different ones have appeared so far (if you count the variant in Square's livestream that showed the Ratatouille clip). They're inescapable!

And if you thought you could avoid them here just because this website deals specifically with Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts ties into Final Fantasy only PARTIALLY, think again! It counts! They're here too!

Read on for all the details about the Frozen world, plus the Collector's Edition. There are two for Kingdom Hearts, one of which comes with figurines of the characters.

LOS ANGELES (June 11, 2018) – In advance of the E3 2018, at the KINGDOM HEARTS Orchestra - World Tour -, SQUARE ENIX® and Disney announced that the highly anticipated action RPG, KINGDOM HEARTS III will launch on January 29, 2019.

Welp, time to work my ass off if I want to buy the deluxe edition. I've been waiting for this game for literally half my life now. I'll be one of the first people to get this once it's released here in my country. Even if you pre-order here there are instances where the game copies are limited and will only serve those first ones to come to the store.
