Kingdom Hearts 3 is Coming Out in 2019

Sorry, 2018.

Kingdom Hearts 3, the highly-anticipated sequel to Square Enix's Kingdom Hearts franchise, is coming out on January 29, 2019 for PS4 and Xbox One.

Tonight, Square Enix held a musical concert celebrating the Kingdom Hearts franchise. At the end Square Enix surprised audiences by announcing the release date for the third Kingdom Hearts game. Unfortunately, it was revealed that Kingdom Hearts 3 will not be making a 2018 release like previously announced. Rather it was pushed back into 2019.

Kingdom Hearts 3 was first announced in 2013 and since then has been eagerly waited for by fans of the series. Kingdom Hearts combines Square Enix properties with Disney IP all wrapped up together in an action RPG shell. While the game's story is baroque and over-the-top, the game's charm and expert fusion of two distinct IPs has made Kingdom Hearts one of the most beloved Square Enix RPGs.

Kingdom Hearts 3 director Tetsuya Nomura promised that we will hear and see more about Kingdom Hearts 3 at E3 this week during Square Enix's press conference. For up-to-date news check out our E3 2018 guide, or our Kingdom Hearts 3 guide which will be updated as more information becomes available.
