When do you guys think it'll be up for pre-order? With all the fanfare I'm surprised it isn't an option yet.
Most likely when they announce the release date, which I think will be the end of this month or early August for a late September/early October release.

<div class="summary-txt">This is a rhythm-based game in which players help characters battle through worlds from the Kingdom Hearts series. On a scrolling track, players time button presses with musical queues in order to attack, dodge, and use magic against fantasy enemies. Animated sequences sometimes depict characters using keyblades to attack enemies in one-on-one combat; a handful of sequences involve characters being impaled&mdash;depicted off-screen or obscured by bright flashes of light. One song title contains the word &ldquo;damned.&rdquo;</div>

I thought the song that contained the word "damned" was an actual lyric. But hey, I like Waltz of the Damned so yay it's in.

I know, but sometimes they'll just put the ambiguous 2020 on the item (I think Bravely Default is doing that?), and we know it's coming out in 2020.

If it's coming out in September, I'd imagine pre-order listings (and Collector's Editions) will show up in the next few weeks.
If it's October, then probably August.

Depending on the price, this may be my first ever rhythm-based game. I'm really looking forward to it, especially since I absolutely love the KH soundtrack.
I also hope we get a custom mode where we can somehow import other songs.

Rated PG in Australia yesterday. Won't be censored, which is good (remember that games like KH2 have been censored outside of Japan).

Another rating update: it's a 12 and up in Germany for PS4 and Switch. Like the ESRB rating, there's no mention of the Xbox version.
