Today the world had prayer answered that has stemmed back to year 2005. The release of the third installment in the Kingdom Hearts Franchise. Kingdom Hearts 3 was showcased today at E3 revealing the brand new world of Frozen to join the all new lineup of Tangled, Toy Story and Monster’s Inc. Kingdom Hearts 3 will released January 29th, 2019 breaking the promise made earlier this year of the already confirmed release year of 2018. Kingdom Hearts 3 will be made available on both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

So what does this mean? With a confirmed release date fans can eagerly begin to expect more trailers and more information to be released on the game with a full list of worlds potentially coming soon. Knowing the timeline with this game gives us as the audience a good gauge as to where this game is at in it’s process. It seems to be nearing the end of production and will be put through testing and a polishing process over the next several months in order to make the scheduled release date early in 2019. With Kingdom Hearts 3 being released on Xbox One it does pose to be a solid step forward for Square Enix as the prior two episodic installments of both Kingdom Hearst 1&2 were made to be playstation exclusive. While Kingdom Hearts is no stranger to jumping platforms, having games be made for PSP, Nintendo DS, Gameboys and even our cell phones I am not too worried about their release of this game on Xbox One. It will open up a pretty big door to gain some new fans as some people may be die hard Xbox fans and never owned a play station of any kind.

I am excited for the release of this game having been a gigantic fan of the first two games as well as all the spin-offs. After viewing the trailer several times I was pleased with the tone and look of the game. Having a smile on my face the entire time. There is just something comforting hearing all of these voice actors playing the role of my child hood heroes.
