The much hyped upcoming installment of the “Kingdom Hearts” has been in the rumor mill for quite a while now. It was expected that ?Kingdom Hearts 3? will be announced at Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), but the company didn?t not provide that much details about ?Kingdom Hearts 3? at the event. However, some reports indicate that the game will not be released before April 2017.
According to Christian Times, developers have already revealed the lineup ?for 2016, “Kingdom Hearts 3” is not included in the games releasing this fiscal year. As the fiscal year ends in March 2017, the release of “Kingdom Hearts 3” is not possible before April. The games to be released this year includes “Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue,” “Rise for the Tomb Raider,” “Final Fantasy XV,” “World of Final Fantasy,” and “Deus Ex: Mankind Divided.”
GameNGuide has reported that “Kingdom Hearts 3” is under development and will be released after the launch of ?Kingdom Hearts 2.8?, which is scheduled to be launched in December this year. According to game?s co-director Tai Yasue, ?Kingdom Hearts 2.8? is the key in understanding the storyline of “Kingdom Hearts 3.” This could very well mean a later release next year, and fourth quarter might just open a window but still speculations exist.
The players will be able to comprehend “Kingdom Hearts 3” only if they have played the “Kingdom Hearts 2.8”. The last part of the game will tell about the background of Aqua. If the players skip the “Kingdom Hearts 2.8”, they will not get the complete creativity of the developers.
“Kingdom Hearts 3” will “focus on the popular Disney worlds.” This confirms the previous rumors about “Big Hero 6,” “Hercules” and “Tangled,” among others being incorporated into the game. Moreover, there are also rumors about the introduction of “Zootopia,” “Toy Story,” “Star Wars” and “Frozen”.
