Kingdom Hearts III director vows to investigate leaked game

Kingdom Hearts III is coming to Xbox One on January 29, 2019 with Xbox One X enhancements in tow. However, it seems like some of the Xbox One copies are out in the wild as we were able to obtain some images of individuals with the discs. As with any such leak, spoilers and video flood the internet and such is the case this time around.

Square Enix is taking this leak very seriously and the game director issued the following statement. Hopefully the team will manage to contain the leaks and confiscate the discs before even more video and spoilers make the rounds. We'll keep you posted if Square Enix updates us regarding the situation.

On a more cheerful note, Digital Foundry was able to confirm the Xbox One X resolution. According to the outlet, the title was running at native 4K resolution with an unlocked frame rate during E3 2018. The outlet also made it clear that the build was running on an Xbox One X development kit and they didn't expect the PlayStation 4 Pro to render at native 4K.

Kingdom Hearts III is an action role-playing game that combines the universes of various Disney franchises and Final Fantasy. It sounds almost like it shouldn't work, but somehow, it just does, and the franchise has won itself millions of fans across the world. This is the latest entry in this long-running series which has been mostly exclusive to Nintendo and PlayStation systems up until now.
