After dominated E3 2013, Square Enix and Kingdom Hearts are doing the right thing by giving the fans what they wanted for several years, kingdom hearts 3. The trailer ( which can be viewed below ) shows off that the game is indeed in early stages of development and won’t be out anytime soon. Many fans have been optimistic suggesting that the game should be released by the end of 2013 or early 2014, I’m going to be realistic here and give you the truth.

Kingdom Hearts 3: What We Know
We posted earlier that Kingdom Hearts 3 will not be exclusive to PS4 which comes to a shock for many fans of the game. The game will be available for the PS4 and the Xbox One console which should increase revenue for Square Enix. Recently Tetsuya Nomura had an Interview in which he told us what to expect from Kingdom Hearts 3 and when it takes place. The game will take place after Kingdom Hearts 3D and is the last game in the ‘Dark Seeker’ saga. Battle system wise Nomura added,
“The action’s pretty frantic. The really bold action we’ve always had is getting even crazier. Kingdom Hearts III has three-person parties, but NPCs and other characters join the fight in each individual world, and the resulting action is really flashy and exciting. The enemy AI is a lot more intricate, too, and I think the gameplay will reflect that new dynamic balance. For example, there’s a foe that’s shaped like a vehicle, and Sora may jump on it and fly around; that’s already implemented.”
Lastly, we do know that the game is not being developed by the original team but instead by the Otaka Studio, read the full article here.
Kingdom Hearts 3 Release Date:
The truth is that the game IS in the early stages of development and we won’t be seeing it anytime soon, we will be lucky to see it at next year’s E3. Game development takes time and I expect the game to be released in Fall 2015 or 2016. Square Enix did mention that they will no longer keep their fans in the dark when it comes to gaming development, so we might be hearing a few things here and there. Let’s hope so at least. I wrote an article a few months back about the things that Kingdom Hearts 3 should include, check it out here and enjoy the video if you missed the E3 trailer.
