“Everyone is here!”
Game director Tetsuya Nomura himself composed the following box art for Square Enix’s highly-anticipated action-adventure RPG Kingdom Hearts III and to nobody’s surprise — it’s beautiful:
As we draw closer to the launch of #KingdomHearts III we'd like to show you all the cover art for the game!
This stunning piece, featuring a number of iconic characters, was created by series director Tetsuya Nomura.#KH3sharethemagic

What makes the art perhaps even more enjoyable is that the characters aren’t caught in some bland, in media res action pose we’ve seen a thousand times before; instead, we get a romantic, emotionally-charged throwback to the original Kingdom Hearts box art, with numerous characters gazing with a mixture of bravery and contemplative wonderment into the starry night sky.
Kingdom Hearts III is slated for release on January 25, 2019 on the PS4 and Xbox One platforms.
