Kingdom Hearts III heads to Xbox One, PS4 in 2018


Kingdom Hearts III will head to Xbox One and PS4 in 2018, Square Enix and Disney confirmed over the weekend.

The news comes by way of a new trailer for the game, focusing on Disney’s Toy Story franchise. Check it out below:

The game, first announced four years ago, will miss the 15th anniversary of the original Kingdom Hearts by a single year. Still, fans seem to be happy that a release window has finally been shared.

Square Enix’s Tetsuya Nomura has told IGN that his team is focusing on Xbox One and PS4 releases first, but a possible Nintendo Switch release is still on the cards.

“The Nintendo Switch is definitely a very interesting piece of hardware, but if we lightly say, ‘Oh yeah, we’ll be on the Nintendo Switch,’ I’m sure people will come back and say, ‘But what about the PS4 and Xbox One? We want them out first. Don’t focus on other platforms,” Nomura said.

“So for now, we want to focus on what platforms we’ve already announced we’re going to be releasing Kingdom Hearts 3 on. And so after, perhaps, maybe we can start thinking about other possibilities.”

We’ll have more on Kingdom Hearts III as it becomes available. Until then, what do you think of the Toy Story-ified Sora, Goofy and Donald?

Kingdom Hearts III will be available in 2018 on Xbox One and PS4.
