Kingdom Hearts III Will Be Out In January

It’s 1:30am Eastern on a Sunday morning and Square Enix just announced Kingdom Hearts III’s release date, because why not? The long-awaited action-roleplaying game will be out on January 29, 2019, the publisher says.


Technically this is a delay—Square had previously said Kingdom Hearts III would be out in 2018—but at least there’s a firm date now? And at least they announced the news in the middle of the night on the weekend of E3, two days before THEIR OWN PRESS CONFERENCE. Never change, Square Enix.



Do I need to read up on or play the previous games to understand this one? Because I’m gonna be honest, I stopped playing halfway through the first one way back in the day when it came out. I can’t even remember why I stopped. It’s weird because I love both Disney and Square.
