It’s been a very long wait, but the release date of Kingdom Hearts 3 is nearly upon us. It’s set to launch on January 29, 2019 for PS4 and Xbox One, and you’ve got multiple options when deciding how to buy it.
Kingdom Hearts 3 takes you and series protagonist Sora on a journey to a variety of Disney-themed worlds, including everything from Toy Story to Monsters Inc. to Pirates of the Caribbean. It marks the conclusion of the story that’s been told across the series, but if you’re eager for the very end, you’ll have a bit of a wait. The video epilogue will be released shortly after launch.
For those who have not kept up on the many twists and turns of the Kingdom Hearts story, that’s okay. If you want to get caught up, we have a Kingdom Hearts story recap to help you get ready.
