Chain of Updates
The Kingdom Hearts Twitter revealed the scheduling process for the upcoming content that will be patched in, as Tetsuya Nomura previously mentioned in his comments over the leaked Xbox One copies back in December.
Here is the schedule they posted this morning.
Kingdom Hearts 3 free update schedule:
Tuesday, January 29: Update 1.01 (several data fixes)
Memory Archive (videos) *The Memory Archive option will be added to the game’s title menu and can be viewed at any time.
*The Memory Archive is a digest of the Kingdom Hearts story in the series up to this point.
Wednesday, January 30: Epilogue (video) *Players will need to have completed Kingdom Hearts III and seen the ending to view this video.
Thursday, January 31: Secret (video) **Players will need to have completed Kingdom Hearts III and seen the ending, as well as fulfilled certain criteria during play to view this video.
* *The criteria vary depending on the difficulty level selected.
*The epilogue and secret movie are video content that will enhance player’s enjoyment of the world of Kingdom Hearts.
*These pieces of downloadable content are additional elements for Kingdom Hearts III
*The main game allows players to proceed to and view the ending without the need for an internet connection.
So there we have it! This will stop people with early copies ruining the secret movie and epilogue. Whilst it will suck for those without a stable internet connection, it’s all done to stop people from spoiling the game.
Kingdom Hearts 3 launches on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on January 29th.
