Kingdom Hearts III was officially announced for the first time at Sony’s E3 press conference in 2011 (so was Final Fantasy XV, then known as Final Fantasy Versus 13). We have been waiting since 2006 for a true sequel, and we will finally have our wish fulfilled in the beginning of 2019. Along with the standard game releasing January 29th, a very special item will also find itself available.
According to Playstation Blog, The Limited Edition Kingdom Hearts III Playstation Pro will be launching alongside the game. The Pro itself is an extremely limited item and can only be pre-purchased at Gamestop in the U.S. and EB Games in Canada. It will cost $399.99. Given availability running to your nearest store as soon as possible is not a bad idea.
The bundle features a black PS4 Pro with Kingdom Hearts designs all over the top. Also included is a custom PS4 DualShock 4 controller, a physical copy of the standard game, and some exclusive content in the form of a Kingdom Hearts original theme for your dashboard and a midnight blue variant of an in-game Keyblade. They were originally including the “Story So Far” package of all the previous Kingdom Hearts games according to early reports from it’s initial reveal at E3 2018. There must have been some confusion considering it is nowhere to be seen in the description.
I have been super pumped for Kingdom Hearts III since the announcement (which I did watch in 2013). As a huge “Disnerd”, combining the action role-playing game elements of a Final Fantasy game with the epic universe of Disney really speaks to me. With world additions such as Big Hero 6 and Toy Story 3 Square Enix is finally answering many fans requests for Pixar’s creations.
