Today Square Enix announced via press release that the previously announced Kingdom Hearts VR Experience has been delayed.
The experience was supposed to come on Dec 25 exclusively for PlayStation VR, but the first episode will instead be released on Jan 18, 2019. This is just a few days before the launch of Kingdom Hearts III.
An update including the second episode will be released in the spring of 2019. Incidentally, Jan 18 was used to be the expected release date for the update before the delay.
The title will allow players to experience the history of the Kingdom Hearts franchise in virtual reality alongside with its beautiful soundtrack.
If you’d rather learn more about the upcoming Kingdom Hearts III, you can enjoy a few lovely commercials from earlier today, the “final battle” trailer released a few days ago, another recent video, the latest screenshots and the opening cutscene featuring Hikaru Utada’s song “Face my Fears.”
Kingdom Hearts III will finally be launched on PS4 and Xbox first in Japan on Jan. 25. Western gamers in North America and Europe won’t have much longer to wait in order to play the game, as it will launch on this side of the Pacific Ocean on Jan. 29.
