Kingdom Hearts 3 Epilogue to Be Patched-In Shortly After Launch

Kingdom Hearts 3 Epilogue to Be Patched-In Shortly After Launch

With gamers quick to leak spoilers across social media, a unique approach is being taken to preserve the story integrity of Kingdom Hearts 3. Players have to finish the game to see it.

It's a smart move to be fair, even though it might seem odd that the game's epilogue won't actually be there on release.

This patch rollout was a plan of series director and creator Tetsuya Nomura had since the discs were pressed for the game. It can be accessed via the game's title menu at any time.

In Japan, the game will release on January 25 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and Square Enix will release an update for the game at midnight JST that day that will include data corrections and a set of memorial archive videos.




This was revealed through the official Kingdom Hearts Twitter page this morning. The first, scheduled for release alongside the game on January 29, will be the typical bug fixes along with a "Memory Archive" story recap. January 31's update brings another video, but unlocking it is a secret. The global version of the game launches on January 29, and the game will receive the same update with data corrections and the memory archive videos on launch day.

However, that is the Kingdom Hearts 3 Epilogue and not the actual ending of the game. No word on what these videos will be about, other than that they will "enhance player's enjoyment of the world of Kingdom Hearts".

After learning that the full Kingdom Hearts 3 ending will be unavailable at launch, what are your thoughts?

Secret Ending- Nearly every Kingdom Hearts game has a bonus ending that requires completing extra challenges to see. Are you happy that gamers will be unable to spoil everything the day of release?
