Ok, so when do you think 2.8 will be released in 2016?

I imagine there will be a bit of a gap between the Japanease and the NA/EU releases, with the NA/EU release being a few days apart from one another, much like with 2.5.

Since I am in the UK, I am hoping for a summer release over here with a Japanease release in April 2016.

I am thinking KH3 may make its way to stores early 2017, maybe for KH's 15th anniversary. I would expect they may want at least a year between releases.

Of course, one could hope that a NA/EU version of 2.8 releases within a month of the Japan release! But I doubt that will happen.

Since Square releases their games in Japan earlier than NA, I assume mid 2016 or early 2017

Already confirmed that it will be coming out 2016 worldwide.

I guess I missed that piece of information. I was always used to their games being released in Japan early.

It can still come out in Japan earlier then everywhere else but other countries should still get 2.8 in 2016 as well.

1.5 was released in Japan in March 2013, and then NA and EU in September 2013.

2.5 was released in Japan in October 2014, and then in NA and EU in December 2014, two months after JP had got it.

Worldwide March/April 2016

My prediction:

JPN: July 2016
NA/EU: October 2016
AUS: November 2016

The last few KH games have released the same week in PAL and NA and Australia is a part of PAL (EU + AUS + NZ) so...

II.5 only had a release date gap of less than two months and all the translated versions were out the same week. Because of that I'm hopeful that the Japanese and localized versions will be out much closer together.

Edit: ethyyyyy

Honestly, at this point in the series I think anything less than a worldwide similar release date (such as within the same week) would be unacceptable. Majority of this game is going to be new content with things relating specifically to KH3, with one of the games included being an actual KH3 demo.

As for actual release window, I'd love it to be spring, but I don't expect it until at least summer.

Yeah, I don't want to be spoiled over Back Cover or 0.2. The gap between releases for KH3D really rankled many people considering the whole game was spoiled in those 4 months we had to wait.

2.8 is worse because it actually contains what may possibly be our first true taste of how to expect Kingdom Hearts 3 to play (if they go with the classic command system rather than command deck) and 2/3 parts of the game is brand new content.

Nobody is going to want to wait.

Intenet, a completely nerd, I don't think I could stay spoiler free, there's never a sereis I couldn't not be spoiler free, not even Anime I coulld. Give mthe fisr week of 2.8's realease and I would know Back Cover and 0.2's story.

I say at least Early March at best,, if not a Fall release.

Probably at least a 2 month gap between the Japan and US version, so... July/October, I guess. If KH3 even gets released in 2017, they'll push it to the Fall for Christmas sales, I'd guess. I wouldn't put it past them to re-release the ReMIXes to PS4 in 2017 and push KH3 to Fall 2018. This series sucks that way.

i doubt they going to push kh3 to 2018 just because people want to have them all on ps4 save that for after kh3 plus disney is giving square ever source of material and even helping them more closely by having the movie directors or somebody that work on the movie to help them make the worlds close to the movies

You know they're not purposefully delaying KH3 in favor of other KH titles, right?

Say it with me: NOTHING IS GETTING PUSHED IF IT DOESN'T HAVE A RELEASE DATE TO BEGIN WITH.

I would say around spring next year for Japan and somewhere in the fall in America.
Look at 1.5 and 2.5.
They had almost similar release date, so its gotta be the same case with 2.8
That or the fact that KH BBS 0.2 is something that may take a lot of work so, who knows?
