After officially being announced five years ago, the long-awaited third entry in the Kingdom Hearts series finally has a release date. During the Kingdom Hearts orchestra in Los Angles game director Tetsuya Nomura, via a pre-taped message, announced a release date of January 25, 2019 for Japan and January 29, 2019 for North America and Europe. While this date misses the previously announced 2018 release window at just under a month, it’s nice to know when fans can finally continue Sora’s adventure. Nomura also confirmed that several trailers for Kingdom Hearts III will be released throughout E3 2018, meaning fans won’t have long to wait to see even more of the game. Lastly, the Disney Pixar film Ratatouille has been confirmed for the game, though it’s unknown if it will be in the form of a world or summon.
While the wait has been a long one, this highly anticipated sequel is less than eight months away from being released on PS4 and Xbox One.
