The release of Kingdom Heart 3 is getting closer by the second and Square Enix has given fans a glimpse at the opening theme song by Skrillex and Hikaru Utada.
Skrillex has been a fan of Square Enix publicly for some time now. He has even produced remixes of Hikaru Utada’s previous works ‘Don’t Think Twice’. The two fiercely talented musicians have once again creatively teamed up to give us the theme song for Kingdom Hearts 3, ‘Face My Fears.”
