Kingdom Hearts 3 has leaked with more than a month to go before the game’s actual release.
Polygon reports that 30 leaked copies are in circulation via someone with a connection inside the North Carolina-based facility that’s manufactured and printed game discs. The discs all appear to be Xbox One copies.
A user on Twitter saw copies of the game being sold via Facebook Marketplace, though that listing and the Twitter thread describing it have both been deleted. A copy of the latter was uploaded to Imgur. As part of the listing, a series of spoilery videos were posted to the internet and remain in circulation.
In reply, Director Tetsuya Nomura has released a statement that assures fans that the game’s “biggest spoilers” aren’t featured in the videos. Nevertheless, he’s asking fans not to distribute the videos that are available.
