Kingdom Hearts III Release Date Revealed, Coming 2019

Japanese publishing and development giant Square Enix has finally revealed the release date for the long-awaited Kingdom Hearts III, which is set to release in the West on January 29, 2019 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

The reveal occurred not during Square’s E3 press conference, but at the Los Angeles leg of the Kingdom Hearts Orchestra World Tour. Taking to Twitter to share the exciting news, game director Tetsuya Nomura apologized that the development team are taking a little longer than expected to bring the game to life. To their credit though, January 2019 isn’t so far off from the initial 2018 release window, and whatever extra time is necessary to make the best KH3 experience possible is fine by me. You can see the original tweets below:

Mark your calendars, people, and stay with us on WellPlayed for the latest on Kingdom Hearts III.

Kieron started gaming on the SEGA Master System, with Sonic the Hedgehog, Alex Kidd and Wonder Boy. The 20-odd years of his life since have not seen his love for platformers falter even slightly. A separate love affair, this time with JRPGs, developed soon after being introduced to Final Fantasy VIII (ie, the best in the series). Further romantic subplots soon blossomed with quirky Japanese games, the occasional flashy AAA action adventure, and an unhealthy number of indie gems. To say that Kieron lies at the center of a tangled, labyrinthine web of sexy video game love would be an understatement.
