Kingdom Hearts III Gets Release Dates; Coming January 29th

Square Enix showcased Kingdom Hearts III at the Orchestra Concert held in Los Angeles, and finally release dates were revealed for the west and Japan.

Today, during the Kingdom Hearts Orchestra concert held at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion in Los Angeles, which DualShockers attended, Kingdom Hearts III Director Tetsuya Nomura got on stage to introduce a brand new trailer and announce the much-anticipated release dates.

The trailer showcased content from Ratatouille and Tangled, and it’ll probably be published soon (so yeah, you won’t find it in this post). Most interestingly, we finally got a release date of the game, that will launch in the west on Jan 29th, 2019 for PS4 and Xbox One.


Japan will get the game just a little earlier, on January 25th.

During his brief speech, Nomura-san apologized for the delay but did not provide a specific reason. He also promised that there will be more to see during E3. To be more precise, there will be more than one trailer incoming.

If you want to see more about Kingdom Hearts III, you can check out a recent batch of colorful screenshots showing a variety of situations and worlds, and a trailer showcasing the Classic Kingdom and its minigames. Another trailer, released earlier this year, showcased the Monster Inc. world alongside the English theme song “Don’t Think Twice” performed by Hikaru Utada, who will also lend her voice to the Japanese song “Oath.”

In case you didn’t reserve your copy of the game just yet, you can do your pre-order on Amazon.
