PAX East 2016 was just held a few weeks ago, and it was a great opportunity to get new game news. Senior Editor Jakejames Lugo of The Koalition had a chance to interview Hironori Okayama, the producer of Kingdom Hearts Unchained χ.
As we’ve discussed in the past, Unchained χ is a prequel to the entire Kingdom Hearts saga, set before the Keyblade War. It is a mobile game available for iOS and Android devices. While its story begins at a very slow pace, it does contributing to the overall lore of the Kingdom Hearts series.
While the majority of The Koalition’s interview focuses on Unchained χ, the information it didn’t give us actually tells us something important. Square Enix did not give out any new Kingdom Hearts 3 details, but promised that we will learn more about it “during E3 and afterwards.”
If you’re interested in hearing the interview with Hironori Okayama and learning more about Kingdom Hearts Unchained χ, here is the video.
It’s nice to learn more about Kingdom Hearts Unchained χ, but it’s also exciting to know we can look forward to Kingdom Hearts 3 news at E3 2016.
We probably won’t get a release date for Kingdom Hearts 3 just yet, but maybe we’ll get to see a new trailer or learn a few more worlds that have been added to the game. Last E3, Square Enix held its own show at E3 and gave many new details, including a fantastic Kingdom Hearts 3 trailer.
So far, Square Enix has not announced a similar event for this E3, so Kingdom Hearts news will probably be shown at one of the other press conferences. It’s quite likely we’ll receive a release date for Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue at E3, since it’s due out sometime this year.
While Kingdom Hearts 3 may feel like it’s a long way off, don’t forget that you can now play all of the Kingdom Hearts games through the 1.5 and 2.5 compilations, as well as Unchained χ and the upcoming 2.8.
Other than a release date, what are you most hoping Square Enix shows about Kingdom Hearts 3 at E3 2016?
