Kingdom Hearts III removed from Japanese Xbox One site, becoming PS4 exclusive in Japan?

Kingdom Hearts III is set to release for the Xbox One and Playstation 4 but things might be different in Japan. Sharp eyed fans recently noticed that the Xbox One Japanese site removed Kingdom Hearts III from their website.

Although the game currently doesn’t have a release date, information and trailers have been released at a steady pace. It makes little sense to remove it from the site since its one of the biggest Japanese titles coming to the Xbox One.

People are speculating that Kingdom Hearts III will be released exclusively for the PS4 in Japan like a few other games in the past.


Microsoft Japan has yet to comment on the story but we’ll keep you posted as we find out more. Kingdom Hearts III was revealed to be in development at E3 2013 but currently doesn’t have a release date.

Fans speculate that we could get the game as early as next year mainly because Final Fantasy XV is Square Enix’s big game this year, Kingdom Hearts III could take center stage in 2017. With Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue releasing in December, the story is just about ready for a conclusion.
