Square Enix released Kingdom Hearts 3 with a notable omission earlier this year — the more challenging Critical Mode difficulty that longtime fans have loved playing. But now, Kingdom Hearts 3 players will get the chance to do just that this week.
Kingdom Hearts 3 franchise director Tetsuya Nomura announced via a tweet that Kingdom Hearts 3's Critical Mode will arrive on April 23 (PT). Nomura nor Square Enix offered an exact timeframe tomorrow for the Critical Mode update, as well as whether anything additional will be included in the update.
"Greetings, it’s been a while since I last posted," the tweet read. "Spring is here, and I hope everyone is doing well. #KingdomHearts III's long-awaited Critical Mode is available as a free update tomorrow (PT). We’ve changed things up from the previous games, so I hope you enjoy - Nomura"
