It seemed like a lock that Square Enix would announce Kingdom Hearts 3's release date at its E3 press conference. But the gaming giant has done one better, making the reveal a few days early.

Kingdom Hearts 3 will hit the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on January 29, 2019. The official announcement was made on Square Enix's Twitter.

It's a long time coming for fans. The gap between Kingdom Hearts 3 and Kingdom Hearts 2 will be just over 13 years. It's predecessor was first released in Japan back in December 2005.

A follow-up tweet noted that trailers and more information will be coming at E3.
