Tetsuya Nomura Comments on Kingdom Hearts III Leak

Spoilers for Kingdom Hearts 3 have reportedly leaked online ahead of the game's January 25th, 2019 release date.

The person in question apparently stole around 30 copies of Kingdom Hearts III from a shipping warehouse, then tried to sell them on Facebook for around $100 each.

It's an incredibly busy spring for video games next year, with the usual quiet months of January and February stuffed full of major new releases.


Game director Tetsuya Nomura responded to the unfortunate news, saying in a statement that he urges people to not share any spoiler-y videos. We are also aware as to how this has all happened. The internet has only made avoiding spoilers more hard, especially when YouTube gives zero fucks about promoting videos with endgame images in the thumbnails.

If you're a Kingdom Hearts fan eagerly awaiting the release of Kingdom Hearts 3 in around 5 weeks time, you might want to be a little cautious of spoilers for a while. We're sorry to see this caused concern amongst our fans who are excited for the release.

"We're aware that a small portion of Kingdom Hearts III has been circulating online before its official release", Nomura said in his statement.


We're almost there though folks, Kingdom Hearts 3 will be officially released on 29th January, 2019 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

He also thanked fans for not sharing any spoilers and apologized profusely to those who have had Kingdom Hearts III spoiled for them.
