UPDATE: Utada Hikaru isn’t working on a new song for Kingdom Hearts III quite yet By James Stine on December 22, 2016 at 5:43 PM

UPDATE (12/23/2016): Utada Teruzane returned to Twitter today with a brief correction on his original statement. He says that while they’re eager to get involved with Kingdom Hearts III, the decision to do so is not official as of yet.

ORIGINAL: Recently confirmed on Twitter by Utada Teruzane, father and manager to Utada Hikaru, his daughter is indeed working on a new theme song for Kingdom Hearts III, and that they’ve already begun work on it.

You undoubtably know of Utada’s songs both used in Kingdom Hearts and Kingdom Hearts II with their respective theme songs, “Simple and Clean” and “Sanctuary”. Until today, fans have questioned whether or not Utada would be creating the new theme song to the long awaited finale of the Kingdom Hearts series.

Fans can now rest assured that another iconic theme song will be created for Kingdom Hearts III following in the footsteps of its prequels.

Next in line for the series is Kingdom Hearts 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue which will release worldwide next month on January 24th, 2017. Included in this title, and revealed in TGS 2016 trailer, is a remix of “Simple and Clean” done by Japanese producer PUNPEE. This remix will be featured in its own EP set to release on January 11th, 2017 which you can read about here.

  • Good to know but it’s not really news worthy.

  • Nick Greeley

    Everything Utada is news worthy.

  • James Stine

    It is news worthy actually. They recently said they weren’t working on it and declined the offer by Disney.

  • Well I guess they won’t get trolled for using simple and clean again.

  • What if someone did an article on her last BM?

  • It’s worthy for KH fans. This will shut up every guy who’s been saying Utada has stopped working for KH.

  • true

    It’s only a prequel if it releases after the entry it’s set before. A prequel is a type of sequel. You mean “predecessors”.

  • Justice V

    If someone was up and close enough to see it it might be news worthy?

  • omg no lol

  • Jesus Christ
