You’ve seen the brand new trailer and screenshots, but now it’s time to feast your eyes on Kingdom Hearts III’s fantastic PlayStation 4 box art. Sketched by series director Tetsuya Nomura himself, the image shows key characters like Sora, Mickey Mouse, and Donald Duck. Love or loathe the franchise, it’s hard to deny that this is a wonderful illustration.
The game’s obviously not far away now, with its 29th January release date locked in. Are you looking forward to finally getting your hands on this long-awaited sequel? Unlock the comments section below.
Wow, very nice.
I played all games (except the prequel one) and I honestly don't even understand who's alive or not lol I see people on this box art that I thought were dead lol
Who understands that dumb story anyway am I right?
Well isn’t that pretty!
Can’t wait. Need to squeeze another KH collection playthrough in beforehand.
First time a SE box art isn't ruined by a big ''DAY ONE EDITION'' label on the front
@AFCC i understand it
thats a beautiful box art.kingdom hearts always have nice boxart.for all theyre games.word up son
Have they ever said if this if officially the last game b/c that looks like the box art for the last game.
They should be selling this poster size, w/ the first 1,000 autographed by Nomura. I don't need the autograph but I'll certainly be on the lookout for this to hang on a wall somewhere.
@rjejr they have said it isn't the last game but the last game in the saga
@rjejr it's the last game of the Xehanort Saga but not necessarily the last Kingdom Hearts game but it will apparently finish the story that KHI started
@SKC_Diamond Ok thanks. Guess I'll treat it as the last game anyway.
Well when it's finally done. They said no season pass but the door is open for DLC worlds. A usual I'll wait. Plus I still need to play 2.8.
@rjejr Doesn't matter. We'll all be dead by the time KH4 is done anyway.
@Octane Well that's why it does matter, it this wasn't going to finish it I might not bother. If I die before GoW Part 2 releases I'm gonna be pissed. And I'm not even playing part 2 until someone can confirm to me there is no part 3. Which people have told me there will be b/c of the mythology.
@FullbringIchigo "Xehanort Saga"
Is that a real thing? Sounds like something Dr. Suess made up.
That is a nice box art.
@rjejr yeah that's what Square calls it
How many Soras are there in that cover art? You know it doesn't bode well when even the game's box art is confusing! I will still be tempted though of course, despite how convoluted it all is.
This is wallpaper worthy
Also the game is day one for me.
I've always loved the series' boxarts. Another day 1 title for me too!
"How did I live, In a kingdom of thieves."
Box art looks amazing! Only game I played was 1 back on the PS2, god I was only around 17 when I played it, good times.
I have remix 1/1.5 on the PS4 cmon guys gimme some support should I prioritise playing it after MHW?
Hmm, 13 characters on the front... 13 darknesses...
Never played it, but it's very nice to look at. Also had that song from the trailer stuck in my head for ages, though I'm not really the jpop guy.
Haven't played any of the others, but it looks so good. Would I be completely lost without playing the others?
@Octane maybe we don't need another kh game after this... i wouldn't be sad if that were the case, despite playing every mainline entry. i just get fatigued with certain franchises and would prefer to see something new instead...
@AFCC You seriously need to play "the prequel One", Birth by Sleep is VERY important to the KH3 story.
Do you own 1.5 + 2.5 and 2.8 yet? They both go on sale regularly for $20 New each, so $40 total.
@Fight_Teza_Fight I also plan to marathon the entire series right before KH3 releases...
Soon as I beat Spider-Man/Rise of the Tomb Raider/Before the Storm and can make time for Spyro and 1-2 Halloween themed games.
@NintendoFan4Lyf I assume you have a PS4, so all you need to buy is 1.5 + 2.5 and 2.8
Both games go on sale frequently for $20 New, so the entire series would only cost you $40, $100 if you count KH3.
@DerMeister @wiiware Same here, I plan to pre-order KH3 sometime in January.
@optic_efun11 You will be SERIOUSLY lost and confused if you just skip straight to KH3.
Highly recommend to spend the time playing thru all the games in 1.5 + 2.5 and 2.8, or at least watch them on youtube/watch a recap.
@KidBoruto Yeah I've got my playthough scheduled for early December . Just after Darksiders 3. Should beat the collection in ~5-6 weeks.
Clock goes to XIII, love it
@KidBoruto only one I donXt own is 2.8! Maybe I'll get it for christmas
@FullbringIchigo Don't lie.
@AFCC but i'm not, it's really quite easy to understand actually
Shadow of the tomb raider for me. Beautiful! 😁
Not played a KH game, but yes this box art is very nice. I must say I am very confused by all the KH games and their numbering system. I do plan to play them with my daughter when she’s old enough, so I’ll figure it out then!
@AFCC no one is dead . Just possessed or dispossessed. Ive played every game . So if you have any questions . But it would probably be heavy spoilers haha
@eltomo if you not played dream distance drop you wouldn't understand it. Basically 13 darkness against 13 weilders of the light
@LieutenantFatman just one the others are ventus and roxas
Very nice artwork!
@NintendoFan4Lyf Worse case you can always watch recap videos or skim thru gameplay videos. There are also YouTubers that splice together all the cutscenes into one big movie.
@Fight_Teza_Fight Nice planning . I'll probably start my own KH marathon around the same time, it all depends on how long it takes me to beat Spyro Reignited Trilogy and the Halloween games if I haven't beaten them.
@AFCC You should be able to easily find Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue on sale for $15-$20 New during Black Friday/Christmas season.
Heck it's still on sale for $20 New right now!
@GravyThief It's very easy to understand! All you need to buy is 1.5 + 2.5 Collection ($20 on sale) and the 2.8 Collection ($20 on sale).
1.5 Playing Order: KH1, Re: CoM, watch 358/2 Days cutscenes.
2.5 Playing Order: KH2, Birth by Sleep, watch Re: Coded cutscenes.
2.8 Playing Order: Dream Drop Distance, Birth by Sleep 0.2: A Fragmentary Passage, and finally watch Back Cover movie.
Once you've done all of that, you'll be completely caught up and ready for KH3 when it releases.
@johnny30 I thought it was confirmed there were only seven wielders of light?
@KidBoruto @johnny30 I agree, 7 lights vs 13 darkness to create x-blade.
@eltomo confirmed 7 but theres actually more if youve played dream distance drop but that would be spoilers . Unconfirmed theory. Wouldn't make sense to have 13vs 7 but we'll see in January
It does look quite nice, don't have much interest in the game though. I've found every single KH after the first one average to straight out bad, also Nomura storytelling & dialogue just doesn't do it for me.
Will be listening to the soundtrack though definitely.
@FullbringIchigo maybe it's easy for you but I bet most people don't understand
@johnny30 so when we kill the guys from the Organization...they never die?
@AFCC yeah i sure some people have played all the games and still have no idea what's going on
@KidBoruto there are 7 Princesses of light but King Mickey and Yen Sid are trying to find 13 Keyblade wielders to fight the Organisation's 13 members
remember you don't have to be a light wielder or a Darkness wielder to be a Keyblade wielder, case in point Mickey has the Keyblade of the Realm of Darkness yet he doesn't carry darkness within him
@AFCC nup lets just say it involves time travel without spoiling kingdom hearts too much think nobodies and heartless one side of the same coin. Defeat the heartless and nobody version they'll form the orginal version
@FullbringIchigo Thanks for the correction, it's been a long time since I've played the series.
@johnny30 most confusing series ever! Even more so than Metal Gear
