Kingdom Hearts III announced for PlayStation 4 By John Sotomayor on June 10, 2013 at 10:47 PM

Kingdom Hearts III has been officially announced for the PlayStation 4 at this year’s E3 2013.

Sorry we’re late with this; so many people were accessing the site, it went down just after the big reveal! This was a HUGE surprise. The staff here at Nova Crystallis was expecting a reveal for the 2.5 ReMIX, so this went beyond our wildest dreams.

The trailer began with Sora on the Destiny Islands. He picks up what looks like Eraqus’ Keyblade and suddenly finds himself in Twilight Town, fighting a horde of Heartless swarming together in the air. The art style is reminiscent of previous KH games, but it contains the refinement found in the Versus XIII (or rather, Final Fantasy XV) trailer.

Kingdom Hearts III has been expected for over seven years now, and we’re so happy to finally see it in the works. More information and media will be posted as it is made available.

Update: We’ve got a little gallery of LQ screenshots going. I’ll bring you the better ones as soon as I can.

    There will probably be some major pessimism about how long this game will take to be released, given what happened to Versus, but I think SE will get this out much sooner than people will think.

    And good to see Sora will have plenty of Heartless to deal with 😀

    I don’t expect KH3 until 2015 at the soonest. Probably 2.5 next year.

    And hopefully, Versus will be a launch title for the PS4.
