How to Save in Kingdom Hearts 3

How to Save in Kingdom Hearts 3

With a game as long as Kingdom Hearts 3, you’ll want to know that your game is being saved correctly. Here’s what you need to know.

Kingdom Hearts 3 presents a sprawling epic which blends elements of Final Fantasy and Disney, to create something new entirely. There are 9 main worlds to visit, some lasting several hours at a time, and some pretty lengthy cutscenes as well. While playing through the game, you’ll probably be wondering how you can save, especially since there’s so much potential for lost save game data in between cutscenes. In this Kingdom Hearts 3 Saving Guide, we’ll go over how saving works in-game, and explain whether or not there is an autosave in Kingdom Hearts 3.

For more on Kingdom Hearts 3, you’ll want to head over to our Kingdom Hearts 3 Guides Hub. It’s where we’ll be collecting all of our Kingdom Hearts 3 Guides Content, from combat tips, to Lucky Emblem locations.

Kingdom Hearts 3 Save Points

The most obvious way to save in Kingdom Hearts 3 is to use Save Points. These crop up in most of the larger areas you’ll enter, and are usually placed before and after big boss fights. They are indicated by green portals, which you must interact with in order to save. We’ve included an image of a save point in Kingdom Hearts 3 below:

Look for the green glow!

Can You Autosave in Kingdom Hearts 3?

Unlike a few of the previous entries in the series, Kingdom Hearts 3 does actually feature. It’s not immediately obvious how often this occurs, but the game will autosave during gameplay sections. In our experience, saving is very frequent indeed, and it’s rare that more than a few minutes go by before a save. Great news for those worried about losing progress.

So there you have it, everything you need to know about saving your game in Kingdom Hearts 3. For more on the game, be sure to check out our Kingdom Hearts 3 Lucky Emblems Guide. There’s also our complete walkthroughs for each of the worlds. So far we have walkthroughs for Olympus, Twilight Town, and Toy Box.
