Kingdom Hearts Re:coded European Release Date Leaked [Update]

Update: Square Enix just updated the Kingdom Hearts Re:coded site with the release date, January 14, 2011 for Europe. While the official page says its the same release date for North America too, games are usually not released on Fridays in the States and writing the date in the day-month format is quite uncommon.

January 14th, 2011. That’s when Square Enix are publishing Kingdom Hearts Re:coded in Europe, which they accidentally revealed via their Twitter. Shortly thereafter, they took the tweet down…but not before someone managed to retweet it.


A bunch of Kingdom Hearts fans then promptly reported the matter to KHInsider who ran the post. Three months — that’s an incredible turnaround time for localizing the entire game into multiple languages.

  • Same date in US. Official site here

  • P4ine

    so basically we’ll be having it like in february or march

    • …. Didn’t think about what was mentioned up top in the new update.

    First day definitely for me :D

  • That’s awesome. It’s a minus that there’s a lack of voice acting. But if the text is the reason it’s localized so quickly, then change that minus into a plus

  • Thats pretty fast, which leads me to greatly question the quality of the game. K

    • I think they’ve been working on the localization for a long while now if they had an English trailer at E3.

      • The only character that talks in the trailer is Jiminy in the beginning of the trailer, the rest of the “speaking lines” were no audio with English subtitles, though

  • Joanna

    I’m not surprised it’s so quick. SE is trying to get this out before 3DS hits, which makes me sad because that means the rest of the games still left in Japan won’t make it over. :(
