Unfortunately it seems that players are leaking footage from the upcoming Kingdom Hearts 3 on the site, uploading clips including the opening scene of the game and even an apparently “secret boss.”
(We won’t be sharing any links here. Kingdom Hearts 3 is a game that we’ve wanted for actual years and no, we don’t want it spoiled.)
So how has this happened?
Well, late last year some retailers accidentally started selling copies of the game. Although they were removed from sale as quickly as possible, it left some people with early copies of the game.
Clips from the title started to appear on sites like Facebook and YouTube – only to be quickly taken down by the companies. Unfortunately, the same hasn’t happened with Pornhub…
The official social media pages for Kingdom Hearts posted a statement from the company, apologising to its fans for the mess-up when the game first became available.
Heads up, Kingdom Hearts fans:
The full version (!) of KH3 appears to be out in the wild (some screenshots and videos exist that I won’t share here)

The game’s director Tetsuya Nomura also confirms they know where the leak came from, but added that the game’s epilogue and secret movie – the most spoiler-ific parts of the game – haven’t been released, so at least those won’t be cropping up online anytime soon.
Kingdom Hearts 3 releases 29th January 2019 on Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
