Kingdom Hearts 3 is rumored to receive a new multiplayer gameplay feature which would allow gamers to explore worlds and embark on missions together, sparking rumors on social media that the feature may be responsible for delaying the game’s release date.
However, the recent decision made by the game’s developers to switch the game’s operating functionalities to the Unreal Engine system has also been cited as a possible reason for the title’s release date delay.
Rumors of a new Kingdom Hearts 3 trailer and release date update surround the 2015 D23 Expo in Anaheim this August, where the game’s developers are expected to show off the highly-anticipated title. “At the moment, we have major titles such as Dragon Quest Heroes and Final Fantasy Type-0 HD,” Square Enix President Yosuke Matsuda said . “In 2015, I believe we will offer a vast number of high-end games in both the domestic market and overseas.
Now that we’ve already announced Final Fantasy XV, we will also reveal information on [another] JRPG.
I believe we have a bit of a surprise in store for this year.” Kingdom Hearts 3 release date gameplay development is rumored to be delayed and is unlikely to be released this year.
The recent death of voice actors Leonard Nimoy and Chikao Otsuka are also said to be responsible for the delay in finalizing the title’s development.
