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.
