In a rather open interview with Italian site Multiplayer -- as translated by Kingdom Hearts Insider -- Square Enix game director and artist Tetsuya Nomura admits that both Final Fantasy VII Remake and Kingdom Hearts III wer
Look but don't touch
It's been an exciting few days for Kingdom Hearts fans at this year's E3, and to top it all off, Square Enix has revealed a gorgeous limited edition PS4 Pro ahead of Kingdom Hearts III's release. Oh boy, isn't it a sight for sore eyes? However, it doesn't look too good for people living outside Japan, where Square Enix...
A pirate's life for me
Kingdom Hearts III has been all over E3 2018, and it's shown up once more for Sony's press conference. This time, however, we were treated to a brand new trailer, and this one reveals the world of Pirates of the Caribbean. All the major characters you know from the movies are...
During Microsoft's Xbox E3 press conference, Square Enix showed off a brand new trailer for Kingdom Hearts III, which appears to feature a whole lot of characters from the movie Frozen. We also saw many from Tangled, Monsters Inc., Toy Story, Hercules, and Mickey Mouse. An interesting feature we noted was that you can...
Taking the Mickey
Fans have been waiting for Kingdom Hearts III for a very long time, and over the last year or so, a 2018 release date has been a shining beacon of hope. The good news is the elusive game has at last been granted a concrete release date. The bad news is it misses 2018. Kingdom Hearts III releases on 29th January 2019, just falling...
New gameplay footage of anticipated RPG
The embargo has lifted on hotly anticipated threequel Kingdom Hearts III, and a bunch of brand new PlayStation 4 gameplay footage has dropped as a result. You’ll find two direct feed clips in this article, showing Sora sprinting up a cliff-face with his Disney friends, before he battles the Heartless in a...
Sora like those ol' LCD toys
Square Enix has provided an update on Kingdom Hearts III, but perhaps not the kind that fans wanted to see. A new trailer entitled ‘Classic Kingdom’ shows off several Game & Watch-esque minigames that you’ll be able to play within the PlayStation 4 title, spanning everything from simple platformers to...
Disney's D23 Expo Japan, starting today, could be the site of an announcement concerning Kingdom Hearts III. The Kingdom Hearts Twitter account teased an appearance at the expo, leading many to speculate whether another trailer or even a release date could be revealed in Tokyo. Kingdom Hearts III's current 2018 release date
Square Enix has announced at the D23 Games Showcase that Kingdom Hearts III will release next year in 2018. Alongside that, a new world was shown off which comes in the form of Toy Story. You can watch the footage above. The trailer gives us an extensive look at Andy's room, outside of it, and a meeting with Woody and Buzz Lightyear. So,...
Skipping the show itself however
Square Enix has just published a new trailer for the ever elusive Kingdom Hearts III, which you can view below: The trailer features Sora, Donald, and Goofy as they help Hercules in battles against the Heartless atop Mount Olympus. The game itself won't be appearing at any E3 conferences or on the show floor...
When are we realistically expecting Final Fantasy VII Remake and Kingdom Hearts III to launch? We mean like, realistically. Square Enix doesn't exactly have the best track record when it comes to releasing big games in a timely manner, but its vagueness with regards to these two titles in particular is becoming a bit of a drag...
Yet more evidence
Realistically, Final Fantasy VII Remake and Kingdom Hearts III were never going to release in 2017. Heck, at this rate, we'll be lucky to see either of them at E3 this summer. But just in case you're still harbouring some hope that one of them will hit the PlayStation 4 before the year is out, we'd recommend giving this document...
The most complicated franchise in gaming will be (practically) complete on the PlayStation 4 this month, as Square Enix is remastering its last-gen remasters for Sony's new-gen system. Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 Remix will include a whopping four games and two movies on one Blu-ray disc, and the publisher's dropped the first few...
Alongside those new Final Fantasy VII Remake screenshots, Square Enix has dropped a fresh Kingdom Hearts III image straight outta the current crop of weeaboo conferences occurring in Monaco. This one shows Sora wielding his Keyblade like a shield, as he fights off against a new type of the Heartless in Thebes. "The Keyblade turns into a...
Or Kingdom Hearts III
It's time to drag those dreams into reality: Final Fantasy VII Remake probably isn't launching this year. The project was originally announced at Sony's E3 press conference back in 2015, but aside from one gameplay trailer, we've seen very little of Cloud and the gang's high def revival. In an interview with Famitsu,...
There's a circle in Hell where Satan punishes sinners by forcing them to write Kingdom Hearts articles for eternity – Dante Alighieri just forgot to mention it in his Inferno. Clearly we got up to some bad stuff in a previous life, because there's Kingdom Hearts news coming out of Mickey Mouse's exaggerated ears right now. Sigh. So, it's...
When worlds collide
World of Final Fantasy is already a nostalgic golden nugget for Square Enix veterans, but the fan service is about to get even stronger with the addition of Sora from the Kingdom Hearts series. The Keyblade-wielding icon will be added as free downloadable content later this winter – but only temporarily as a means of...
Taking the Mickey
Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue – and breathe – was originally scheduled to release in December this year, but weeaboos will need to wait a little while longer for the Disney X Square Enix mash-up. The PlayStation 4 exclusive game – which compiles (sigh) Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance, Kingdom Hearts χ...
Saving the best for last
It's no secret that the Kingdom Hearts series has transformed into quite a meandering and occasionally confusing beast. After 2005's Kingdom Hearts II, the series spread itself across three additional platforms and continued telling side stories that expanded the lore, but never strictly progressed it any further than...
Three's a charm
Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8: Final Chapter Prologue may have a December release date attached, but where the Mickey Mouse is Kingdom Hearts III? The game was announced what feels like an absolute eternity ago, but while we've seen some small snippets of gameplay, it's mostly remained locked up in Disn
Oh Mickey, you're so fine
The elaborately named Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8: Final Chapter Prologue will launch worldwide in December, exclusively on the PlayStation 4. Square Enix confirmed the date as part of a new trailer, while also stating that the compilation – which includes a remastered version of Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance – will...
Sora saw it coming
Square Enix is going insane at the moment, dropping trailers, release dates, and announcements like it's in a rush. And there'll be no let up tomorrow, as it's teased a new Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8: Final Chapter Prologue trailer. The promo will go live tomorrow at 21:00PM Japan time, and promises to include new material. For...
Come on, guys
Tantrums have been had earlier today when Square Enix revealed its software lineup for the rest of 2016. Titles like World of Final Fantasy, Final Fantasy XV, and Deus Ex: Mankind Divided are all on track to launch later this year, but there was no mention of Final Fantasy VII Remake, Kingdom Hearts III, or NieR Automata, much to the...
Kingdom Hearts III and Kingdom Hearts HD II.8 feature in new trailer
This author practically waited all day for the promised Kingdom Hearts III and Kingdom Hearts HD II.8: Final Chapter Prologue footage to emerge, so it's no surprise that it was released while we went for a nap. Nevertheless, we're wide awake now – wielding our replica Keyblades...
The annoyingly named II.8 also in on the fun
It's time to go quackers: Santa will be sucking in his stomach and slipping down your chimney in order to deliver a new Kingdom Hearts III trailer today. Presumably this will be an extended version of the grainy Buzz Lightyear teaser that hit the online airwaves earlier in the week. We're Sora excited...
Someone call Star Command
It's a hard knock life being a Kingdom Hearts fan, so when seven seconds of the series' forthcoming PlayStation 4 sequel arrive – well, you need to cling on to them for dear life. The off-screen clip has emerged out of D23 Expo Japan 2015, which was actually held in Tokyo last month. In it, we see footage of a Buzz...
The prequel to Kingdom Hearts III
Look, you'll really just have to trust us on this one. Today at Sony's pre-Tokyo Game Show press conference, Square Enix announced that Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8: Final Chapter Prologue will be coming to PlayStation 4, with an official trailer releasing on 17th September. Yes, that's really what it's called. No, we are...
Holding out for a Hiro
We know that Kingdom Hearts III is already tangled up with, er, Tangled – but the forthcoming sequel will also feature a Big Hero 6 storyline, set after the events of the movie. The announcement was made during the D23 Expo this weekend, and confirmed that you'll be able to explore the film's fictional setting of San...
Kingdom Hearts III will be riding a giant teacup into Anaheim, California next month, as the hotly anticipated PlayStation 4 title is set to put in an appearance during the D23 Expo. According to the show schedule for the Disney-focused fan-fest, "Square Enix will bring special guests and surprises to Hall 23 to reveal new information"...
More than meets the eye
After scaring all of Square Enix's E3 2015 conference viewers by showing a Kingdom Hearts mobile game at first, the Japanese publisher relieved everyone's fears by following this up with the most anticipated title of the show: Kingdom Hearts III. Thankfully, not only did we get a cutscene with a young Xenanhort and (perhaps)...
You're taking the Mickey
Voice actors are hired by big video game publishers to open their gobs, so it's no surprise that they struggle to keep them shut outside of the booth. Bill Farmer, who's playing Goofy in Kingdom Hearts III, caused a mild storm on Twitter earlier this week when he 'announced' that the forthcoming PlayStation 4 sequel will...
Square Enix may not know how to do release dates, press conferences, or reasonable haircuts, but it's an expert at HD Collections. The firm's Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster was at least half a masterpiece, and the original Kingdom Hearts collection has become the only proper way to start the franchise. Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX...
With veteran heel dragger Tetsuya Nomura in charge, we all know that Kingdom Hearts III is several years away. However, the legendary developer seems eager to shake off his longstanding reputation, by being proactive and switching production to Unreal Engine 4 – ditching the firm’s in-house technology in the process...
Progress not Frozen
With veteran Square Enix artist Tetsuya Nomura now in charge of Kingdom Hearts III, it wasn’t a huge surprise to see the sequel skip the Tokyo Game Show last week. The developer spent the past eight years or so of his tenure at the Japanese company making excuses regarding Final Fantasy XV – which is only 50 per cent...
Company used a Keyblade
You didn’t think that upcoming compilation Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX was going to release without some kind of collector’s edition, did you? Just like the Genie out of Aladdin’s lamp, Square Enix has helped all of your dreams come true, by confirming that all copies of the forthcoming collection will come with a pin...
We've got you covered
There’s so much happening at E3 that it can be hard to try and see everything. Over on the Square Enix Presents E3 Channel, Kingdom Hearts co-director Tai Yasue answered questions sent in by fans about the upcoming Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX. With his team having worked on the original Birth by Sleep, as well as the more...
Filling the hole in our hearts
The wait for Kingdom Hearts 3 feels like an eternity, but there's still a long stretch until we get some next-gen Keyblade action. Thankfully, this gives us time to refresh on the story so far with Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX. Set to release on the PlayStation 3 in North America on 2nd December and Europe on 5th...
Not goofin' around
Despite being dormant for a little while on home consoles, Kingdom Hearts III is set to plot the return of Square Enix’s twee Disney and JRPG mash-up on the PlayStation 4. However, with no firm timeframe attached to the title, the Japanese publisher is taking the opportunity to poll fans on their thoughts on the franchise. And...
Super system causing concerns
Tetsuya Nomura has been working on Final Fantasy XV for an eternity. The high-ranking Square Enix employee started production on the sequel on the PlayStation 3, where it was known as Final Fantasy Versus XIII. It’s since re-emerged as a next-gen title for Sony’s latest console, with a new name. Despite this, the...
Looks Sora great
Hot on the heels of the decent Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX, ordinarily sluggish publisher Square Enix is busying itself with successor Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX. The high-definition overhaul – which is being produced alongside PlayStation 4 sequel Kingdom Hearts III – bundles the second game
The key to more gadgets than you can imagine
Fans of Square Enix’s bizarrely popular Disney and role-playing game mash-up Kingdom Hearts will know that the Keyblade has evolved a lot since the series’ inception. What started life as a mere weapon in the original release has also doubled as a vehicle in more recent entries – and series...
