Kingdom Hearts III will release on January 29, 2019 By Tony Garsow on June 10, 2018 at 1:30 AM

Kingdom Hearts series director Tetsuya Nomura took to the stage at a special orchestra concert in Los Angeles this evening to share a special trailer with the audience. In it, we learn that Kingdom Hearts III will release on January 29th, 2019 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in North America. Nomura commented that the date was a bit later than expected, and apologized, but said there’ll be a few new trailers to show off at this year’s E3.

Reports are characters from Disney’s Ratatouille (2007) and the Organization were spotted in the trailer shown at the concert, though, not necessarily in the same scenes.

Via Famitsu, the game will release in Japan on January 25th, 2019 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Stay tuned to Nova Crystallis for more details as they come in.

  • I’m pissed. I really am but I’m not mad at Nomura. This is the first and only delay and this maybe needs an extra month just to ensure it releases the best it can be. The peeps that got to play it left a lot of feed back that could really help fine tune things and that’s what we want. What I am pissed at is anyone who jinxed this to happen. Be that as it may, I will await this games release.

    Yaaaaaaaaaaas!!!! I’m crying. I’m dying!

  • Jesus Christ

    Any news on collector edition? I wanna pre order now thanks!

  • I was looking for it on the site and I couldnt find anything. We need to wait until monday actually have it pop up.

    Glad that’s it’s been delayed. Hoping this last kh will tie everything and hoping there’s no future missing scenes for the main storyline.

    I don’t mind having paid dlc for aqua, terra, Ven, riku.

  • At least its only off by a month.
    But as far as I saw, the only thing that need work was wall running and jumping.
    Does just that warrant a delay?

    Is the release date worldwide or Japan only?

    *EDIT* just realized Japan is Jan. 25 while the rest is Jan. 29!

  • Jesus Christ

    I can’t wait. I am weak.


    You’ve already died once! You can’t die again!

  • Jesus Christ

    You’re right. Humanity needs me

  • SNK

    Red Dead Redemption 2 and a new Call of Duty releasing in the same month warrants a delay.

  • Which month? If they put KH3 in November or DECEMBER it’d be fine.

  • Justice V

    What we saw wasn’t everything there is in the game. Gameplay mechanics wise perhaps those two things need to be worked. But there could still be tons of issues with levels, lighting, textures, audio, text, clipping, crashes, level design, etc. Doubt any of that is the reason for the release date, but there’s always more that could be done to finish a game.

  • Justice V

    When was the last release date announced? I missed it. What was the date supposed to be?

  • But why not just put it at the start of December ?

  • We had the year, it was confirmed by them for 2018 back at D23. We just needed the day.
