Nearly five years to the day since its announcement, the Kingdom Hearts III release date for PS4 and Xbox One has finally been revealed just ahead of E3 2018, while plenty of more KH3 info has come since the show’s conferences began.
Square Enix will make Kingdom Hearts 3 available on the PS4 and Xbox One on January 29, 2019. It will be released five days earlier in Japan on Jan. 25, 2019. Kingdom Hearts 3 had previously been scheduled for 2018.
Franchise director Tetsuya Nomura apologized for the slightly delayed release date both at the concert and online.
“We’ve announced the release day for KINGDOM HEARTS III 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,” a written statement on Twitter attributed to Nomura explained. The announcement came via the kickoff entry in the 2018 Kingdom Hearts Orchestra Tour.
