Kingdom Hearts 3 has been in development for quite some time and Square Enix has not revealed much about the game and certainly, no release date has been announced. However, it seems that Kingdom Hearts 3 release date has been leaked by an online retailer.
The news comes from the Twitter user, Wario64, who noted that Target has a listing for Kingdom Hearts 3 and according to the linting, Kingdom Hearts 3 release date is 1 November 2018. However, this could very well be a placeholder, so take it as a grain of salt.
In related news, Square Enix has revealed that Sephiroth might not return to Kingdom Hearts 3. According to game director Tetsuya Nomura, the development team thinks that Sephiroth has appeared enough times in the series that featuring him now will feel redundant.
I can’t say for certain, I hope, hint hint hint. I can’t say for certain. In terms of Sephiroth, do you feel like you want to battle Sephiroth again? We can’t say anything at this time, but in terms of Sephiroth specifically, my development team are worried that we’ve had him come back so many times so they’re maybe worried it might be redundant at this point. We’re still deliberating on it.
Furthermore, Square Enix has also noted that the game could come to Nintendo Switch too. According to Tetsuya Nomura, KH3 on Nintendo Switch is a possibility but, not a priority for the development team as they are currently focusing on Xbox One and PS4 versions of the game.
Also, earlier this year producer Tetsuya Nomura said that character customization might be featured in Kingdom Hearts 3 but it is not a priority.
Kingdom Hearts 3 is an upcoming action RPG in development at Square Enix for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
