‘Kingdom Hearts 3’ Latest News & Update: Third Entry’s Sales Performance Declines in Japan but Blazes Across Europe

After enjoying the top spot for several weeks regarding sales performance in Japan, “Kingdom Hearts 3” has now fallen from the summit. The fall wasn’t too far, however, as it currently sits on the number two spot, PushSquare reported.

There are no new titles that have knock “Kingdom Hearts 3” from the ladder either. Rather, the cause is likely the organic decline of a title after marketing and popularity have waned. Interestingly enough, the third entry has secured the top spot in the European GSD chart this week.

This implies that “Kingdom Hearts 3” still hasn’t burned out its jet pack yet, which isn’t surprising. The title has been one of the most anticipated sequels for the story, with its predecessor hitting the market way back in 2005.

So far, reviews for “Kingdom Hearts 3” has been varied. Some have hailed it as a satisfying conclusion to the overarching story of Sora and the fate of the titular Kingdom Hearts. Others, however, have labeled it as lacking, especially on the story side of things. Those who haven’t played the first and second entry of the game will have a hard time following the story due to the massive narrative injected in it.

Among the body swapping, lost memories, time travel, and several plotlines, newcomers will be hard pressed at keeping up with the pace of “Kingdom Hearts 3.” Fortunately, its game mechanics delivers hard and is a great way to convince players to keep moving forward.

The problem is the battle system of “Kingdom Hearts 3” doesn’t do well when juxtaposed with recent hits like “God of War” and “Marvel’s Spider-Man.” Granted, both these titles have set the standards so high that it’s difficult to mimic their respective responsive mechanics.

But all of these negative criticism doesn’t seem to faze the sales performance of “Kingdom Hearts 3” if the above data is anything to go by. With highly-anticipated titles like “The Last of Us Part 2” and “Cyberpunk 2077” a long way off from hitting the shelves, “Kingdom Hearts 3” still has several months to enjoy before being overshadowed by its competitors.
