Square Enix is the one behind the hugely successful Kingdom Hearts franchise, where the quirky world of Final Fantasy and Disney come together to deliver magic. The past few months have seen rumors that the Kingdom Hearts franchise will expand its horizons to welcome Kingdom Hearts 3. So far, the game’s release date has yet to be confirmed, although we would speculate that Square Enix should have completed the job by the time January 24, 2017 rolls around.


You can also check out the trailer for Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Prologue that was shown off at the Tokyo Game Show 2016. The game's mechanics as well as plot details were finally made known, and the 2.8 number is there for a very good reason -- it is the alleged prelude game chapter to Kingdom Hearts 3. 

Still, you can say that Square Enix does not want to jinx things too early, which is why the Japanese company has been pretty careful in revealing details concerning Kingdom Hearts 3. Thankfully, the purported 2017 release date mentioned for the Sony PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One has not stopped leaks concerning new content in Kingdom Hearts 3, which includes a trailer and some gameplay. By then, the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One would have aged considerably, even if Kingdom Hearts 3 arrives at the beginning of the year. Could it be one of those titles that help to prolong the life cycle of both consoles for a little while longer before the next best thing arrives?

Yibada reported that a Reddit user who is known as Zonemasta8 managed to cause more than just a ripple in the Internet after he posted a GIF image. That particular GIF image depicted the gameplay features as well as alleged graphic improvements that can be found in Kingdom Hearts 3. You know, we would be sorely disappointed if a game that will be released two years down the road lacks any kind of improvement in the graphical department.

One particular sequence in the GIF picture depicted the combat gameplay of Sora, Donald and Goofy. It is clear as day that the resolution in the graphics has improved by quite a margin compared to Kingdom Hearts 2. This is to be expected, as the second instalment of Kingdom Hearts was released slightly more than a decade ago.

So far, there has been no one to step forward to claim that the leaked GIF is authentic. However, one should not deny the possibility that said photo is a fake, either.

They say that good things come to those who wait. At least we do know that Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue is all set for a roll out on the PlayStation 4 some time later this year.
