Fans will not see Kingdom Hearts 3 before April 2017. This is the news that will not be taken easily by Kingdom Hearts fans that have been waiting ages for the release of the series’ next installment.

Videogamer reported that Kingdom Hearts 3 is not due for launch in Square Enix's current financial year, ending March 31, 2017. Square Enix showed a list of “major titles” that are scheduled for release this year in an earnings presentation last March 12th. The list includes World of Final Fantasy, Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue and the Rise of the Tomb Raider PS4 version.

Moviepilot wrote that the latest Simpsons’ clip shows the classic animations of Disney that would be great for Kingdom Hearts 3. The couch gag for The Simpsons begins with Maggie, presented in the animation style reminiscent of the 1930s – an art style that Kingdom Hearts had used before. See if you agree that Kingdom Hearts 3 should feature them.

Meanwhile, rumors about other worlds that might be included in the Kingdom Hearts 3 have been emerging in the past months but no confirmation or denial was heard from Square Enix until now. It was reported last year that Marvel and Star Wars might be added as new worlds in the upcoming Kingdom Hearts game as they are both owned by Disney however, Tai Yasue, co-director and game designer for Kingdom Hearts 3, didn’t confirm anything.

"They're all under consideration. Nothing’s off-limits, we're considering all of the worlds. There are so many wonderful concepts. We're happy about that, but at the same time it's really tough to choose,” Yasue said.
