Kingdom Hearts 3 Release Date And US Pre-Order Guide (PS4/Xbox One)

Kingdom Hearts is ready to wrap up.

15 Comments

It's been a very long wait, but the release date of Kingdom Hearts 3 is nearly upon us. It's set to launch on January 29, 2019 for PS4 and Xbox One, and you've got multiple options when deciding how to buy it.

Kingdom Hearts 3 takes you and series protagonist Sora on a journey to a variety of Disney-themed worlds, including everything from Toy Story to Monsters Inc. to Pirates of the Caribbean. It marks the conclusion of the story that's been told across the series, but if you're eager for the very end, you'll have a bit of a wait. The video epilogue will be released shortly after launch.

For those who have not kept up on the many twists and turns of the Kingdom Hearts story, that's okay. If you want to get caught up, we have a Kingdom Hearts story recap to help you get ready.

Reviews have not yet been released, but if you're a diehard fan and eager to pre-order, you can get the full rundown on what to expect in terms of bonuses, special editions, and pricing below. Just be prepared for a lot of options.

Is there any indication as to when the Pre-Orders for the Ps4 pro LE will go live? Definitely trying to at least try to get one before they sell out, it must be limited quantity and if you would know how much its expected to cost?

this is probably a stupid question, does the Deluxe edition come with the base game? nowhere does it say it comes with the base game...

the one i'm referring to says "The Deluxe Edition will include a steelbook case, artbook, and collectible pin featuring Sora with the Kingdom Hearts 3 logo. It will not come with any digital content."

According to this article the Deluxe Edition is $60.00 if you have a prime membership but when you click on the link the Standard edition is on sale for $48.00 for prime but the Deluxe stays at $79.99. Am I missing something here? or did the article just mess up?

@chaos9900: You're right -- Amazon doesn't offer 20% for limited edition/deluxe edition/collectors edition video games. So the article just messed it up.

@astrawhun any chance you can edit the article to indicate that?

It looks like Gamestop is also offering a fabric poster with both Standard and Deluxe edition pre-orders.

@impact455: Ive never seen a video game themed ps4 that is sold without the game, so im sure you cant get it by itself.

I was super excited to get the deluxe edition for ps4 from amazon using my prime 20% off but I realized that it doesn't work. In your article you mention that it is $64 w/ amazon prime so is there a method to get it to work or is it an error (really hope there's a way..) Good article otherwise!

@sourcecoderz: under Amazon for the standard:

6. Offer does not apply to certain video game products such as toys to life, collector’s editions, re-releases, re-masters, and product bundles including but not limited to console game bundles and accessory bundles.

I guess it's considered collector's or bundle. I honestly thought they had allowed it on prior ones.

@steveb944: Sorry, that was a mistake on my end that I thought had already been fixed. It's been fixed and updated now.
