Square Enix last year announced that Kingdom Hearts 3 was in development for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One during the Sony 2014 E3 Press Conference. The game then showed up at Disney’s Japan event D23 with a short gameplay demo and then at the end of the Kingdom Hearts II.5 HD Remix trailer KH3 was teased again. Square Enix since then went quite on the title giving no further updates on Kingdom Hearts III. There have been two voice actors Haley Joel Osment and Bill Farmer have confirmed that they have done voice work for Kingdom Hearts 3 and Bill went as far as saying that he was told by Square Enix the game would be released this year. Bill later deleted those tweets and then stated that Square Enix has not announced the release date for the title.
What is interesting is that last week Sony & Naughty Dog made Uncharted 4 available for pre-order for $43 and Square Enix followed suit with a $40.99 pre-order price for Kingdom Hearts 3 on Amazon. The companies have since then changed the prices for both UC4 and KH3 back to their original $59.99 pre-order prices on Amazon but with the HD Remasters of the previous games in the Kingdom Hearts series both having a December release (2013 for Kingdom Hearts I.5 Remix and 2014 Kingdom Hearts II.5 Remix) we may see KH3 this December maybe after the release of Uncharted 4 which is slated to release later this year. Kingdom Hearts 3’s story will pick up after the events of Nintendo 3DS entry KH Dream Drop Distance and has been rumored to feature worlds from the Marvel & Star Wars Universes as well as the Toy Story and Frozen Disney Universes.
