This Release Marks a 13 Year Gap Between Kingdom Hearts 3 and 2
Square Enix announced on Twitter today that Kingdom Hearts 3 will be set for a an early 2019 release, instead of the late 2018 they had previously announced. It isn’t all bad news, however, as it seems Xbox players will finally be able to play the Disney/Final Fantasy cross-over.
The official Twitter page for Kingdom Hearts broke the announcement just a few hours ago, and has been met with resounding praise, especially at Kingdom Heart 3 finally coming to Xbox on its release.
The journey from Kingdom Hearts 2 to Kingdom Hearts 3 has been long; I’ve managed to graduate from my high school, college, and university in the gap between the two.

Tetsuya Nomura, Kingdom Heart 3’s Director issued an apology on Twitter for the delay, and referencing some more information and trailers at Square Enix’s E3 media conference:
“We’ve announced the release day for Kingdom Hearts 3 ahead of E3 at the Kingdom Hearts Orchestra – World Tour-. I’m sorry that we’re asking for a little more time than initially planned. Please look forward to other information, including a few trailers at E3. Thank you.”
Whilst some people might complain about a short delay, it isn’t always a bad sign when a company delays their game. It gives them much more time to make sure it live up to the hype of release date, and doesn’t go down in history as a waste of time (looking at you Duke Nukem).
One of the many ways in which Kingdom Hearts 3 is already looking like a instant buy for me is the new addition of the Monsters Inc. world.
