“Kingdom Hearts 3” is nearing its release date and Square Enix is ramping up the marketing campaign for the third and final installment of the franchise. It’s been a long wait and fans are excited to see what’s in store for Sora, Donald, Goofy, and the rest of the Disney casts incorporated within the game.

Co-director Tai Yasue recently gave an interview with Newsweek and revealed a lot about what development was like for “Kingdom Hearts 3.” Yasue said that the major factor that made it difficult for them to create the third installment is their decision to switch game engines.

“It was similar to a roller coaster experience, with a lot of ups, downs and wild turns. Although at times it was a difficult and stressful experience, it was always exciting because we had a huge development team with specialists in so many fields,” the co-director explained. He went on to add that the specialists were assigned to focus on details like wave movements, dust particles, and even dandelion seeds. Indeed, the gameplay trailers of “Kingdom Hearts 3” highlighted some of these details and it looks absolutely incredible.

Yasue also apologized to the fans of the franchise who had to wait 14 years before the third title was completed. He said that they wanted to make sure that everything is as perfect as they could make them in order to meet the high expectations of their beloved audiences. And with how “Kingdom Hearts 3” is looking, the developers appear to have nailed everything down.

From scale and combat to the sheer size of the map and overarching storytelling, “Kingdom Hearts 3” is looking like a contender to snatch the Game of the Year award. Of course, the title is not without competition. There are a lot of AAA titles coming out this year that is also looking to snatch this achievement. “Anthem,” “The Last of Us Part 2,” and “Cyberpunk 2077” are just some of the numerous games that are going to hit the gaming community in the coming months. Meanwhile, gamers should prepare their consoles for “Kingdom Hearts 3” as it’s slated for release on Jan. 29.
