posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Square Enix revealed new details for its Kingdom Hearts III game during Sony's E3 2018 press conference including an actual release date. Fans can pick up the long-awaited sequel on January 25 in Japan and on January 29 in North America, but if you're wanting a really complete package, Sony is also planning a limited edition console to complete the package.
A limited edition PlayStation 4 Pro model featuring a themed front plate and controller was announced at Sony's E3 2018 briefing. The console itself doesn't have an official release date or price point yet.
Square Enix first announced Kingdom Hearts III in 2013. Confirmed worlds include Big Hero 6, Toy Story, Tangled, Monsters, Inc., and the returning Olympus Coliseum world. Hikaru Utada returns to perform the game's theme song "Don't Think Twice" (the song in Japanese is titled "Chikai" or "Oath").
Game director Tetsuya Nomura has noted that the game will have another playable character besides Sora. Nomura has also said that developers are focusing on the PS4 and Xbox One releases before a possible release for the Nintendo Switch, adding that after the PS4 and Xbox One versions have shipped, "maybe we can start thinking about other possibilities.”
