Back in September we reported that Sqaure Enix was working on a Kingdom Hearts PSVR experience to tie into the upcoming release of Kingdom Hearts III. We now know when that experience will launch, at least in Japan.
Twinfinite cites Square’s Japanese arm in saying the experience will launch in the region on none other than Christmas day itself, 25th December. It’s going to be free so that should mean one more present under the digital tree on Christmas morning. Apparently there will also be another update to the app on January 18th, which is just a week before Kingdom Hearts III’s own January 25th release date.
There’s no word on if these dates apply to the rest of the world just yet though we wouldn’t be surprised if fans in the US and EU had to wait until that second date to grab the experience.
Take note that this isn’t going to be a full game but instead a short tie-in experience designed to bring the worlds that fans know and love to life. We wouldn’t expect much gameplay out of it, but you can probably count on seeing some of your favorite Disney characters in VR for the first time. The app may well be worth a look just for that alone.
