Director Tetsuya Nomura has stated:

Quote

I am thrilled that KINGDOM HEARTS III is now officially out. There are many mysteries in the story, so players will want to take their time so that they don’t miss anything. The adventure lies within the journey, and not just the destination. This story marks one of the greatest experiences Sora will have with his friends, so I hope that the players enjoy it. To all of our fans around the world, thank you for eagerly awaiting this day.

An English version of the animated Launch Day promo video was also uploaded on YouTube. You can view it below.

Remember to install the patches for Update 1.01 inclusive of the Memory Archive, as well as claim any DLC Keyblades you're owed! You can also download Update 1.02, inclusive of the Epilogue video which you can unlock once you finish the game. From January 31 at 7:00 PM JST, you can download the subsequent update and start to unlock the Secret Ending.

Update [Jan 29, 2019]: A Launch Commercial (the English-dubbed version of the 30-second Japanese commercial from December) has also been released! Watch it below.

Are you securing your copy today, or do you have it already? Will you binge through the experience or are you going to play through it slowly and savor the moment? (Some of us may be stuck on the menu screen crying to Dearly Beloved for a while...)

Let us know your play styles and completion plans in the comment below!

As a member of the KH13.com forums, your avatars, cover photos, statuses, and thread titles must not contain spoilers.

I'm stuck at work, and then I have another three hours after that before I can get my copy. 7 hours! GAAAAAAAAH! But at least I'm halfway through my shift now. I can do this!

Ahhhh, the pros and cons of adulthood. Pro: I can play KH3 as long as I want without my mom chiding me about it. Con: I still have to work in order to pay rent and buy groceries and whatnot.

Pro: I took the next week off and no one can tell me to go outside to see this giant white orb called the sun.

I'm nearly there. Just another hour and 45 mins till my shift ends. However my game was actually my Christmas gift from my bf so I can't get it without him and he doesn't finish till 6. But right after work I'm buying a Nintendo switch with let's go eevee. That'll keep me occupied till 6. But once kh3 is in my hands then my attention will be on that and that alone.

I have arrived. Now you see me in my full glory.

Joking aside, the day we have all been waiting for has arrived. I want to say it has been fantastic being on this journey with all of you.

The time is now.

All these years of dedication for the game's development, sharing concepts & theories, bonding with other like minded people and learning so much about yourself, on this unforgettable journey.

Feels great to embrace the inner kid at heart on this welcomed day.
