Kingdom Hearts III To Release on January 29th, 2019


The highly anticipated action roleplaying game Kingdom Hearts III will now release on January 29th, 2019 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, as announced today by Square Enix during the KINGDOM HEARTS Orchestra World Tour event.

That's a little later than fans were expecting, as the game was previously scheduled to launch in 2018. Still, the game was first announced five years ago at E3 2013 and fans are quite used to delays by now. Game Director Tetsuya Nomura posted this brief apology message:

Forspoken PEGI Rating Reveals Some Dark Story Elements

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.

Chances are we'll get to see a lot more of Kingdom Hearts III during the Square Enix E3 2018 Showcase (June 11th, 10 AM Pacific Time).
