Shortly after the release of the first free DLC from Hearts 3, the word paid by DLC came from a recent Kingdom Hearts concert in Tokyo, Japan.
Twitter User YanilynGaming reportedly attended the concert and confirmed that the director of Kingdom Hearts confirmed a little paid and free DLC on the way. Paid DLC is known as Kingdom Hearts 3 ReMIND. According to YanilynThe paid aspect will include another scenario known as ReMIND, as well as "Limit Episode + Boss", a new secret episode plus boss, and an English voice option for the Japanese version of the game.
In addition, the new Keyblade and the new form for Sora will be available free of charge.
There is not much more information available at the moment, although we have reached the Enix Square for comment. Based on Yanilyn's description, the type and amount of content sounds comparable to the Final Mix version of previous games that are basically the director's version. Normally released after previous releases in the series, Final Mixes would include additional content that would expand on each individual base game.
According to Yanilyn, more details are expected around June, in line with the recently announced E3 Square Enix as a potential event announcement.
Enix has recently released Critical Mode, a tougher difficulty setting, for Kingdom Hearts 3, this week, and March's NPD release revealed Kingdom Hearts 3 is the best-selling 2019 game so far.
Nomura has previously confirmed both paid and free DLC in Royal Hearts 3. Although Nomura has not reported any specific DLC for Hearts 3 over critical mode, we have revealed what we would like to see as DLC. The DLC seems to be a smart move for Square Enix, as Kingdom Hearts 3 delivered over 5 million copies in the first week, making it the best-selling game in January 2019. t
