Square Enix recently employed the very effective method of getting people seriously hyped for the arrival of Final Fantasy 15. Along with the purchase of Final Fantasy Type-0 HD, every player would receive a demo for the next instalment in the franchise. Type-0 has allegedly sold over 1 million copies, and I'm sure that a great portion of those sales can be attributed to the fact that people have been waiting for years to confirm the existence of Final Fantasy 15.
But now so many of us have had the opportunity to play it, and though it needs work, Final Fantasy 15 looks like a great game. Therefore, due to the success of this demo, could it be possible that we'll see the same thing happen with Square Enix's Kingdom Hearts 3 before its release date?
Kingdom Hearts 3 Demo
We're all still unsure as to when exactly Kingdom Hearts 3 will receive its much anticipated release date for the XBOX One and PS4. But if a demo was released for KH3 in the form of Final Fantasy 15, what game would it come with? Could we see something like Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance make its way onto the PS3 to complete the HD collection? Or are Square Enix really going to re-release Kingdom Hearts and Kingdom Hearts 2 on the PS4?
I seriously hope that this money grab doesn't go ahead, especially after I purchased both of the HD collections on PS3. But you never know what these big publishers are up to. In any case, I think we can all agree that a KH3 demo would really help the company prepare people for the third instalment in this adored franchise. This was actually mentioned as an April Fools joke as you can see below, but I seriously think it's a possibility!
So cruel, so cruel. But the fact is that we really don't know what stage of development Kingdom Hearts 3 is at. Is it in any way playable? We've been assured that the production is going smoothly, and we'll have some more word on the title at E3 and also at the D23 Expo in Japan later this year. Have you also heard that Kingdom Hearts 3 is to have some form of mobile game or app linked to it? An exciting year of news ahead people!
So be sure to let us know whether you think its possible that we'll get a KH3 demo before its official release date! But for now, let's enjoy this short, but beautiful rendition of Dearly Beloved on the classical guitar. Awesome.
