END OF UPDATE
It happened moments ago. Amazon.com sent a short e-mail informing me of the new release date for Kingdom Hearts III, which is allegedly January 2nd, 2017.
Don’t be overwhelmed with joy. Retailers have been known to accidentally misinform consumers about release dates forever. Although the news is welcome, we’ll wait for Square Enix to publicly announce the official release date for Kingdom Hearts III.
Until then, it’s worth noting that Kingdom Hearts 2.8 will in fact release for the Sony Playstation 4 in 2016.
You can check out a trailer and announcement for that new title below.
