Square Enix has definitely maintained the mystery of "Kingdom Hearts 3." Although the much-awaited third installment of the franchise was already confirmed long ago by the Japanese video game developer, nothing much has been said about the game. However, a new BRING ARTS #Sora figure will be released soon, and many took it as a sign that "#Kh 3" may finally be happening.

The BRING ARTS Sora figure will be launched on June 17, 2017 in Japan. The 6-inch collectible will be sold for 6999 Yen or approximately $61.62 USD. With this new tangible item from the third installment, it seems that this is a step closer to the official debut of the highly-anticipated Disney crossover action role-playing game.

The long wait for 'KH 3' may finally be over

Meanwhile, a Reddit post claimed that "KH 3" is set to launch in March 2018. The author shared the update from a Spanish website and noted that although there's a chance that the said release date could be fake, there is also a chance that the news could prove to be true, as well.

The Redditor listed seven updates from the Spanish website. Aside from the alleged "Kingdom Hearts 3" release date, the post also stated that "KH3 is a very challenging development because of all the content they have to work on: levels, animation, models, and that the process is very slow.

Tetsuya Nomura talks about 'Kingdom Hearts 3' update

The game and series director, Tetsuya Nomura, already shared before that although they have already started the development, they still have a lot of work to do.

"KH3 requires a different work process than other titles so far, so I can't strictly say," Nomura told Famitsu, as translated by Kingdom Hearts Insider. "On one hand there are worlds that are pretty much finished, on the other hand there are worlds we still haven't even touched."

Realizing that this update may worry fans regarding the status of the game, the Japanese video game artist quickly noted that this slow process is quite normal. "It's business as usual; we never start by working on all the worlds at the same time," he added.
