You may want to be careful out there Kingdom Hearts fans: copies of the long-awaited third instalment in the series have leaked – over a month prior to the sequel’s launch. Kingdom Hearts III videos are already being uploaded and shared around the web after an errant copy of the full-game found its way into one lucky player’s hands.
It seems that a handful of copies were briefly available via the Facebook Marketplace, but the listing has since been deleted. Of course, the Internet never forgets, and there are already videos of the opening hours of the title online. While we’re sure Square Enix will be diligent in removing any errant clips, the reality is that spoilers are about to become rife.
To be honest, it’s uncommon for a title to leak this early; we’ve seen street dates broken by a few days in the past, but rarely six full weeks. Our advice is to just be careful when using the Internet: you won’t find any spoilers here, but it only takes one errant retweet on social media for the whole plot to be blown. Disappointing.
Not a Kingdom Hearts fan, but this really sucks.
Spoiler: Daffy Duck dies.
well they want to be careful, people have been banned in the past for playing a game that has yet to be released
It’s alright it’s just the XBO copies. No ones going to play those.
No matter how much the media & SE would like to spoil KH3 for me I’ve seen nothing of the game outside the E3 trailers.
Literally waited half my life for this game😬😬😬.
I guess the upshot is that no one understands the story anyway, so that's going to make spoilers really difficult to parse.
Damn, that’s really early.
OK people from now until release DON'T google Kingdom Hearts 3, don't Youtube search for it either nor watch any KH videos that might show up in your recommendations, only follow official social media pages, DON'T read any comments on official social media pages AND no hashtag searching either
that should keep you safe from spoilers
I am not really into the series but it would be horrible to spoiled after waiting for two generations of hardware...
@FullbringIchigo sometimes some realy "bad" people just sent random messages to your facebook account spoiling a game.
has happened to me ones with uncharted 4.
so it's not always under your control.
@jdv95 yeah i used to get spam on facebook messages, that's why i never read any sent by anyone but close friends now
If it's anything like the first two games, it will be a very difficult story to spoil the plot for. More convoluted than Metal Gear Solid and that's saying something.
Even so, still best to be careful.
Again the sorry state of video gaming community today
While I normally really suck at avoiding spoilers mainly due to not having self control, I managed to stay spoiler free for dream drop distance so far until my ps4 is replaced. I’ll manage avoiding KH3 spoilers.
Also unrelated but @get2sammyb this might be worth a article. The dutch store nedgame now has the PSVR V2 starter bundle for €230 and it comes with VR worlds, skyrim VR, doom VFR, astrobot and wipeout. They ship to all european countries and some countries outside of europe.
Not much of a fan of this series, but I would still avoid seeing spoilers. Y’all better be careful.
@get2sammyb Unless it all turns out to be a dream inside George Lucas's head
Crazy how the game is already in people's hands a whole month before release.
@Octane Daffy? You mean Donald? lol
But, I'm not too worried about this. I've been stopping myself from watching any official trailers or gameplay until it releases. I've already seen enough and have my copy pre-ordered. Can't ****ing wait!
@jFug Pretty sure he meant Daffy, that was the joke.
@jFug i had it pre-ordered for about 5 years then i cancelled it
TO PRE-ORDER THE COLLECTORS EDITION
i'm a sucker for Kingdom Hearts
This is just another reason for gaming companies can use to a digital only future. With digital copies there is no street date to break. It's when they decide to flip the switch.
Oh that's incredible, but in a bad way.
I'm calling this leak bs? funny its the xb1 version? we all know that the ps4 version is gonna clean house with the xb1 version sells wise. I'm calling this a control leak by square enix and microsoft.
@Octane spoiler Taylor Swift saves Sammy barker.word up son
I'm not sweating it too much, but it's really unfortunate. I guess I'll be on high alert for spoilers until release.
@Octane good job he's warner bros and not Disney then.
I'll be sure to avoid these then. I'm already spending over £500 in total on this game so I won't be spoiling a thing.
I need to go media dark, and that irritates me. I've been waiting so long for this, I ain't gonna get it ruined for me now.
Apparently, now that Disney owns Marvel....
Square and Nomura has responded
I'm so glad I've never made a Twitter or Instagram or whatever else people use for all the garbage social media stuff these days.
@KingdomHeartsFan these two websites are the only ones I check for gaming as well. I don’t think they will spoil anything.
And if I was given a copy early, I would not spoil anything either. People just want to be famous and lose sight of important stuff, like playing games without spoilers!
