‘Kingdom Hearts 3’ Release Date, News & Update: ’KH 3’ Launch To Be Revealed In E3 2018? Square Enix Hints Possibility
There were a lot of whispers and speculations regarding the Kingdom Hearts 3 release date, but none of those were made official until now. Square Enix has finally ended all the rumors and gave a specific month of when it will be launched. Will the KH 3 release date be revealed in E3 2018?
Kingdom Hearts 3 was first announced at E3 2013 through a short teaser trailer saying that the game was "now in development." Five years later, the Kingdom Hearts 3 release date remained a mystery.
Although Square Enix has shared some updates about what’s in store for the fans when KH 3 finally arrives, the official Kingdom Hearts 3 release date had always been left out. In fact, the third installment of the series of crossover action role-playing games had appeared at a convention every year, but its launch was never brought up.

Now, not only is the year confirmed, franchise director Tetsuya Nomura took it up a notch and finally said the exact month of the Kingdom Hearts 3 release date. The 47-year-old Japanese video game designer revealed that the long wait for KH 3 would end really soon.

Although these speculations have yet to be verified, Tetsuya Nomura’s update seemingly pointed to an E3 2018 announcement. KH 3 is due to be out on the PS4 and Xbox One.
