Kingdom Hearts 3 Pre-Orders Now Available at Best Buy

It may be a little premature to say that Kingdom Hearts 3 has a release date, but Best Buy isn't one to care about the fine details. The retailer has since put up a pre-order page for Kingdom Hearts 3, dating it (incorrectly, I might add) as a 2013 release, no doubt put there as a placeholder. (Kingdom Hearts 3, PS4, Xbox One)

"dating it (incorrectly, I might add) as a 2013 release"

They meant 2031.

I hope Square doesn't strip down KH3 into DLC bits like for instance an exclusive keyblade weapon and a skin for Sora on the PS4 whereas the Xbox One might have like an exclusive world (Wreck-It Ralph for example) or a boss monster.

I would say early 2015

2013? Sure, why not.

Why would you need to pre-order this?
Such a strange trend in videogames these past few years.
Xof  +   621d ago
Retailers like Gamestop order small numbers of games to encourage gamers to pre-order, and they do that because it garuntees a repeat visit to the store. So, for many games, consumers feel the need to pre-order if they want to play the game when it comes out.

The local gamestop for me, for example, had so few copies of games like Uncharted or Last of Us that they sold out entirely by 5pm.

I see. I tend to shop online so I never have this problem. There's always another site you can buy a game from. I understand preorders of special editions and such but for a regular edition of a game it's very unlikely to sell out. It's seems as though publishers want your money up front before the game is even released.

I always pre-order sometimes the incentives to pre-order are good and if I don't want the game I can cancel and get my money back at any time. I really don't see why not if you know you're absolutely getting the game.

Why the hell does Square Enix take forever to release games that gamers (or should I say FF/ KH fanboys) want?

It blows my mind over how they waste opportunities to rake in cash...

A sequel I really want is Sleeping Dogs 2!
Double_Oh_Snap  +   621d ago
Gamers want KH3 and have for 7 years not just fanboys of them, like myself.

As for fans of Final Fantasy. The majority just want a another great Final Fantasy they love again. You know... because how long has it been?

A sequel to Sleeping Dogs would be amazing, I love that game. I would take waiting 10 years for Sleeping Dogs 2 though if it went getting KH3/FFXV next year.

It been years since a Kingdom Hearts(excluding the handheld games). Sleeping Dogs hasn't even been out for a year yet.

Obviously 2013 is a placeholder date. Development on KH3 probably won't start to kick into high gear until Nomura is done with FF15, and who knows whenever that will be. My guess: FF15 is out sometime within the next 2 years, KH3 at least 2-3 years after FF15.
EXVirtual  +   621d ago
I know KH3 is gonna come out in 2015, with the next hd remake coming in 2014.
jakmckratos  +   621d ago
It will be at least Xmas next year. If not then 2015. I am hopeful however that SE has said their dev time will be pretty much cut in time by the new engines alotted by the PS4.
AzureskyZ  +   620d ago
im pretty sure nomura has said the game is way off. The last time he said that was for ffversus13--- might be wise to wait and at least until TGS for more info.
