Considering how long we waited in decimal hell for a full-fledged mainline Kingdom Hearts release, it’s difficult not to feel excited, and it almost feels surreal that we’re finally this close to playing the game.
If you want to see more of Kingdom Hearts III, a recent TV commercial celebrated the upcoming release while a bunch of recent trailers showcased the pre-order keyblades. You can also check out some more keyblade artwork released recently by Square Enix.
Kingdom Hearts III will finally be released on PS4 and Xbox first in Japan on Jan. 25. Western gamers in North America and Europe will finally get to play the game on Jan. 29.
