A release date for Kingdom Hearts III has been decided, but Nomura can't announce it yet


Sora96

Tetsuya Nomura, the director of the Kingdom Hearts series has revealed in the latest issue of Dengeki PlayStation magazine that they have decided upon a release date for Kingdom Hearts III but they cannot announce it yet. Since Dengeki PlayStation is a Japanese magazine, this is likely in reference to the Japanese release date of the game.

 

Thanks go to @htmk73 for the find, to @xenosaga7 for the tip, and to goldpanner for an English translation of the interview summary:

 

[Asked about a release date]

 

Nomura: We've reached an agreement, but I still can't say anything. I plan to give new information at the Kingdom Hearts Fan Event that will be held on the 3rd of November.

 

Do you think they'll reveal the release date for Kingdom Hearts III at an upcoming event such as D23 Expo Japan 2015, where the game is confirmed to be featured? Let us know in the comments below.

makes me wonder if they are going to reveal a world wide release date. Maybe that's why they're not going to tell us yet.

 

FFXV is getting one.

Can't we at least get the release date of the DAMN RELEASE DATE, like there is so much hype building up and telling us what event they will give us the release date is pretty reasonable.

HAHAHAHAHAHA... wait what?! December 2016 almost seems like a guarantee at this point!

FFXV is more likely to release in fall 2016 than KHIII

Wow, I can't believe it. After lurking and being on this site for so long, we are finally close to Kingdom Hearts 3. I've been waiting for this moment :3

I wonder if it is like an actual release date or if it is just a date that they hope to release it on, and if it is an actual release date then they must be further along in development then I thought

I really love Nomura, but I really hate him sometimes. 

 

"Yeah so, we know when we want to release it, and we understand that the release date is very important to people, but we're just not gonna do it because... we're not ready?"

 

Then again, I could be wrong. A LOT of people are already at near maximum hype with KH3, and he may not want to stir more unnecessary hype.

 

Another reason might be that it's not an exact release date, but a date they plan to. If the development has progressed enough by November, they may be ready by D23. If not, they'll continue to be the biggest trolls in gaming. Just a thought.

Release dates for Kingdom Hearts games are almost always announced no earlier than 3-4 before the game launches; it's possible that's the case with KH3 as well :)

If they have a release date, why the heck won't they tell us?! Ugh.

 

But at least THEY know it. If Square Enix didn't know how much longer it would take to release KH3, that would say something about the development progress. Something bad.

Do you have any sort of proof? Like, I don't remember the release date announcement for KH2, 358,BBS,Coded, or DDD. Can you provide the dates for the release announcements?

It may not be up to Nomura. The higher ups at Disney or Square Enix could have his hands tied for now.Maybe they're playing this elaborate game where they won't tell us the release date until like, a year before the game comes out, just so they can see us freak out with how close it's coming.

Guys, maybe were over-reacting. For all we know the release date could be in 2017. Just don't get your hopes up for a release date reveal at D23...we all know what happens when we do that. But if we don't get our hopes up than the surprise will be 20 times better so, let's not get our hopes. I know I won't. :)
