Announced yesterday evening (Slightly under the radar, albeit), the official Kingdom Hearts Twitter page announced that, during the Kingdom Hearts Orchestra World Tour, the release date was announced for all attendees prior to E3; in a shock move, they’ve also made this information public via Twitter.

In the Tweet, the page reads:

“We’ve announced the release day for KINGDOM HEARTS III ahead of E3 at the KINGDOM HEARTS Orchestra -World Tour-. I’m sorry that we’re asking for a little more time than initially planned. Please look forward to other information, including a few trailers at E3. Thank you – Nomura”

So, surprisingly not a December release date like we had planned! But will Kingdom Hearts III get delayed again..? I guess all we can do is wait…
