Kingdom Hearts 3 delayed to early 2019

UPDATE: A world based on Disney's Frozen revealed.

UPDATED STORY 9:30pm: The latest destination to be added to Kingdom Hearts 3 is Frozen, it has been revealed.

Showing up at Microsoft's E3 press conference, new gameplay showcased a first look at the world and its starring characters, including Elsa, Kristoff and Olaf.

The footage also showcased some new Keyblade transformations and some cameos from Wreck it Ralph and Tangled, too. Watch it below:


ORIGINAL STORY 7am: Square Enix has delayed Kingdom Hearts 3 to early 2019. It was due out later in 2018.

That's the bad news. The good news is the long-awaited Disney / Final Fantasy cross-over RPG finally has a firm release date: 29th January 2019 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Director Tetsuya Nomura issued a statement on the delay, apologising while pointing to Square Enix's upcoming E3 media briefing:

"We've announced the release day for Kingdom Hearts 3 ahead of E3 at the Kingdom Hearts Orchestra - World Tour-. I'm sorry that we're asking for a little more time than initially planned. Please look forward to other information, including a few trailers at E3. Thank you."

That's that, then. Expect to see more of Kingdom Hearts 3 during Square Enix's E3 media briefing, which kicks off 6pm UK time on Monday 11th June.
