A message from Kingdom Hearts III director Tetsuya Nomura has suggested that the sequel’s epilogue and secret movie scenes will be patched in to the final product at launch. The insinuation comes after Square Enix was forced to release a statement due to copies of the long-awaited title leaking almost a month prior to launch.
“The game’s planned epilogue and secret movie, which are the biggest spoilers in the game, are planned to be released at a later date just in case, so they will not be shown before the game’s release,” he wrote. Nomura acknowledged that the publisher knew the source of the leak, and it’s working to rectify it.
Of course the problem with the Internet is that once something gets out, it can be extremely difficult to put the lid back on again. At this stage, there’s really nothing anyone can do other than to be aware that spoilers exist, and hopefully you’ll be able to avoid them. It’s a sad state of affairs for a game that’s been in production for so long.
