Prices and release dates weren’t announced for the free or paid content. Expect to hear more news in the coming months.
Kingdom Hearts 3, much like Final Fantasy XV before it, is a game that could benefit heavily from some story DLC. While we did love the game when we reviewed it, there are some key story elements that could be expanded upon through DLC. Once all this DLC is over and done with, we could even see a Final Mix variant, just like its predecessors.
