It’s hard to avoid early leaks of Kingdom Hearts III thanks to them pirates and people who leaked the early copy of their RPGs, presumably for review purposes. Square Enix’s Tetsuya Nomura and his team are aware of the issue, so here’s what he said regarding the leak via Twitter:
We’re aware that a small portion of Kingdom Hearts III has been circulating online before its official release. We are also aware as to how this has all happened. We’re sorry to see this caused concern amongst our fans who are excited for the release.
The whole team has been working together since yesterday night (Japan time) to investigate what we can do to better this situation, but first we would like to ask that you do not share these videos.
The game’s epilogue and secret movie, which are the biggest spoilers in this game, are planned to be released at a later date just in case so they will not be shown before the game’s release.
We want everyone to be able to equally experience the full game after its release, so we ask for your continued support on this matter.
We’re also very grateful that our fans have been warning each other already about the spoilers. Thank you very much.
We’re one month out from the release. Let’s enjoy the game together when it releases on January 29, 2019.
Classy response, for real. Please save your excitement of the game for yourselves until everyone’s played it for the next few months. The full message is below.
Get your body ready for Kingdom Hearts 3 when it’s out 29 January, 2019. In the meantime, check out our preview here.
