Longtime fans of Kingdom Hearts 3 continue to wait on the beloved game, especially since a specific release date has yet to be revealed. However, recent Kingdom Hearts 3 news seemingly hints at the long-awaited game’s launch date at last. Could Kingdom Hearts 3 be available in November?
Kingdom Hearts 3 News Hints at Release Date
As per reports on Kingdom Hearts 3 news, a new retail listing on Target seems to suggest when the game will be available. According to Target’s website, Kingdom Hearts 3 will be available on November 1, 2018. Such news may seem a little hard to believe, especially since Square Enix has yet to formally announce when the Kingdom Hearts 3 release date truly is. Some speculate that Square Enix may reveal Kingdom Hearts 3’s release date at this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo, but it’s worth noting that the event will not take place until June.
Furthermore, Kingdom Hearts 3 releasing within the aforementioned time frame seems a little risky, as it puts it in direct competition against another highly anticipated game: Red Dead Redemption 2. As some may be aware, Red Dead Redemption 2 will see a release on October 26 this year. Thus, Kingdom Hearts 3 hypothetically launching just a little after Red Dead Redemption 2’s release may seem unlikely.
Other Kingdom Hearts 3 News
Release date rumors aside, there are also some speculations regarding the inclusion of a new world in Kingdom Hearts 3. This theorized world is none other than the universe of Disney’s Frozen. Reportedly, a source on Reddit divulged file names from a File Transfer Protocol (FTP) server. While only file names were available, they did feature associations to enemies and objects. From there, fans made their own evaluations on what the file names might hint at.
Some of the leaked files revealed an “FR02” file name, along with several associated icicle files. With this kind of information, some have speculated that Frozen may be included as a world in Kingdom Hearts 3. Such conjecture has long circulated in Kingdom Hearts 3 circles, so the leak comes as yet another source to back up these theories.
Other discovered files from the FTP server featured “PO,” which is theorized to be a reference to Winnie the Pooh. This was accompanied by data referring to vegetables and even Rabbit’s house. Many may be aware that the 100 Acre Woods has already made several appearances in previous Kingdom Hearts games, such as in the original game and its sequel. Thus, having the world make a comeback in Kingdom Hearts 3 may not be all that improbable.
