Kingdom Hearts 3 Looks To Be On Track For A Holiday 2015 Release

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. Check out the most recent KH3 below and be sure to check back to RGN for all your Kingdom Hearts related news.

The Resistance Franchise May Soon Make Its Return On The PS4

Resistance 3 Pic

Sony earlier today filed a trademark claim for “Resistance” which was previously being developed by long time Sony partner and now third party developer Insomniac Games. IG let go off the franchise after the poor sales of both Resistance 3 on the PlayStation 3 and Resistance Burning Skies which was PlayStation Vita exclusive and said the future of the franchise would be in the hands of another development team. There has been no further development as of right now of what this trademark could mean but its very possible that we may see Resistance return in some form or fashion to the PS4. Time will tell if Sony will remaster and re-package the Resistance Collection with Burning Skies for the PS4 or find/create another studio to develop another entry in the franchise. Check back to RGN soon for more on this story as well as for all your video game news.
