"Kingdom Hearts III" Planned For 2018 With "Toy Story" Content

If you're looking to take your Oathkeeper or Oblivion out on the road with you - and not as a card game or port of a mobile phone game or a word salad adventure dubbed Dream Drop Distance - then you might want to start planning on customizing your Joy-Cons.

Speaking at D23 Expo, Kingdom Hearts 3 director Tetsuya Nomura shed a little light on the protracted development of Square Enix's new game.

Kingdom Hearts III is slated to release sometime in 2018 on Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

New details about the highly anticipated installment in the "Final Fantasy" and Disney crossover role-playing game series, "Kingdom Hearts 3", were divulged over the weekend. "Nowadays games can add content on after the fact through DLC content, so there's no need to hide any worlds".

Finally, a release date was announced during the D23 event at Anaheim Convention Center in California by #Tetsuya Nomura and his team, #Square Enix.

The clip also features Kingdom Hearts' signature fast-paced gameplay as Sora is seen using a giant hammer to smash Heartless outside Andy's house and use a mech to shoot down enemies inside the toy story. "I had been imaging that in my head, and to be able to execute that into the game is something I'm really excited for and I'm hoping fans feel the same way I do".

Square Enix has been developing "Kingdom Hearts 3" for years now. Fans have been waiting to get their hands on a proper follow-up to Kingdom Hearts 2 for quite some time, and now they are (at most) 17 months away from doing so.

Before, many were wondering as to when "Kingdom Hearts 3" will likely arrive.
