This week has been a wild one because someone out there is leaking information about Kingdom Hearts 3. Tetsuya Nomura has now responded to the leaks.
Apparently, someone stole a copy of Kingdom Hearts 3 from a distribution warehouse and started posting spoilers and other content online. A Facebook listing was also listed where the person sold copies of the game, although those listings have now been removed.
The game’s producer, Tetsuya Nomura, has now responded to the leaks on Twitter. Thankfully, the leak won’t spoil the game’s ending, but people should be wary of spoilers from now until release date. You can read his official statement posted down below.
Tetsuya Nomura Statement
“We’re aware that a small portion of Kingdom Hearts III has been circulating online before its official release date. We are also aware as to how this has all happened. We’re sorry to see this caused concern among our fans who are excited for the release.
The whole team has been working together since yesterday night (Japan Time) to investigate what we can do to better this situation, but first we would like to ask that you do not share these videos.
The game’s epilogue and secret movie, which are the biggest spoilers in this game, are planned to be released at a later date just in case, so they will not be shown before the game’s release.
We want everyone to be able to equally experience the full game after its release, so we ask for your continued support on this matter.
We’re also very grateful that our fans have been warning each other already about the spoilers. Thank you very much.
We’re one month out from the release. Let’s enjoy the game together when it releases on January 29, 2019.”
Basically, just make sure to avoid spoilers if you are looking forward to Kingdom Hearts 3 next month. The game will be released on the PS4 and Xbox One platforms. As of right now, the game is not coming out on PC or Nintendo Switch.
