In order to caution players against spoilers, Kingdom Hearts III Director Tetsuya Nomura himself took to Twitter to deliver a message. The team is investigating how to improve the situation, but apparently, they have already taken pre-emptive steps.
Wreck it Ralph in Kingdom Hearts No Sora in Wreck it Ralph 2 I’m very saddened by this
"Ending Will Be Released with a Patch . . ." So they're releasing a truly incomplete game. No possible doubt this time. Will they also issue new discs when the ending gets released? Otherwise, the whole game will never be available as a physical purchase.
They are patching the ending so early birds won't spoil the game.
Seems silly since someone could just play without the patch to see the ending. Someone bent on spoiling won't be deterred by that.
Couldn't they do something to lock the game until the release date or a few days before? It'd be better if it was just an unlock patch.
Somebody trying to start something, they did to avoid spoilers because of earlier release and there is no payment for the s.ending.
they probably just lock the ending so pre-launch leaked copies can't access it
What else are they going to do ? they're in a no win situation as this and the ending getting leaked are both bad but they have to pick the lesser of the 2 evils.
The ending is in the game. The secret movie and epilogue aren't currently being shown. Big difference
They never said that. Stop spreading lies. It's the secret ending and epilogue that will be released later, not the ending. The scenes after the credits roll; the after credits.
FF XV: We need 2 extra months to polishing the game because internet users can´t download a large patch. KH III: We will release the ending via dlc!
Theu wanted to avoid spoilers and Im glad they're doing it otherwise the secret ending be would've been floating around for over a month before release
I have been avoiding spoilers since the dawn of nes. I´m a god damn magician Kappa
And XV still came with a day 1 patch
Also KH3: There are YouTubers spoiling the shit out of the game a month and a half early...
Nobody forces you to watch them on youtube lol.
AnnaDea Yeah because spoilers in thumbnails and titles have NEVER existed before... Think you won the dumbest comment of the year just in the nick of time.
With all these trailers I dont even need to play the game! #Thrifty
I haven’t watched any. Hell I didn’t even know this game had a release date. I’m good :D
I’ve been in blackout too. Really not hard to avoid information so as not to spoil games.
40hr jrpg and you've seen less then 5%
So does that mean you cannot access the ending without updating it? If so thats just ridiculous.
No not the actual ending, the epilogue and secret ending.
It's either that or the ending getting leaked weeks in advance which is worse for a story that's been going on for so long.
I get that but what about people without internet, or good enough internet. Dont know about you but you only need to drive 10mins in any direction where i live and the only internet available is dial up. Working in a game store its literally close to half the people that come in dont have the internet to really do anything like this
@isarai I fully agree that it's a bad thing to do but the alternative is the ending being spoiled, an ending people have been waiting for since the franchise was introduced back in 2003-4. If shops would stop leaking games and people who do get them stop spoiling them to be trolls this wouldn't happen.
I hope it's just an unlocking patch (the data is already on the disc, you just need to download a few kbs or mbs to unlock it).
Those people still get to play the full game and see the ending. If they want the secret ending or the epilogue then theu can go somewhere with an internet connection and watch it on youtube. Its not ideal of course, im just saying its not like its impossible. As for people who have absolutely no access to Internet whatsoever, they are an increasingly small minority, getting smaller year after year. Its likely the games industry will cease catering to people without internet entirely in the next ten or so years.
I don’t like this either. I get the protection, but some shmuck will take that as a “hey people want digital only because this idea right here works” and then run with that. It seems to be how many bad ideas come to fruition.
patching the ending in actually sounds like an amazing idea to me.
Secret ending and epilogue, NOT the ending. They're talking about thebafter credits, and not the ending.
This will be great, but why the hell is this game on xbox. Kingdom hearts is a playstation series, with some nintendo side games thrown in. This should of been a ps4 exclusive. Kinda pissed its not.
Why does it even matter? This is just petty.
live and let live.
How does making this game a PS exclusive making it any better?
How does this work exactly? Because this sound like it was planed from the begining with or without the leak, if that's the case, it's bs and i hope it doesn't become a trend.
Good luck if you don't have connection with your console for whatever reason then. They can say it's to avoid spoilers, but it just so happens to be during the timeframe where other games are releasing with less content on the disc than ever. Doesn't seem like a coincidence to me.
at least the skrillix version of the song wasn't In this trailer, be nice if there was just an extended version of Utada's song in the game instead.
I think this was the best move. You have fans who completed KH2 in ‘06 wondering when they would complete the saga. I pray none of them was spoiled by the situation.
Wait what are all these false statements? Square nor Nomura have never said anything about the ending being released as dlc. They said the secret ending and epilogue which are the AFTER CREDITS. Someone desperately needs to check up on their comprehension.
