Kingdom Hearts 3 is only a couple of weeks away and fans are more than ready to get their hands on the next installment in the beloved franchise. However, to avoid spoilers due to gambling losses, Square Enix and the rest of the development team decided not to include the epilogue and the secret film on the shipping record, which means that fans will have to download the final parts of the game in an update. Today, Square Enix has detailed how it will be planning updates after the launch of the game.
On January 29 the owners of Kingdom Hearts 3 will download the update 1.01, which will contain several data corrections and the new memory storage option. The memory archive is designed to be a summary of the series containing what players need to know to immerse themselves in the complex history of Kingdom Hearts 3 . It seems that the archives will be in the form of video, so players will not have to do a lot of readings to prepare for the game. On January 30th, players will have another update of the game that they will add in the epilogue.

Players must complete the game and see the final before they can view the epilogue. Given that there is so much to do in Kingdom Hearts 3 many fans may still be far from beating the game when this update is published. On January 31st, another update will add the secret ending that players can unlock if they meet certain requirements during the game. While the requirements are currently unknown, historically the secret endings have been linked to the collection of objects or have passed the game to greater difficulty.
Square Enix reiterated that the entire game is playable without having to download these updates, and players can view the main ending on the first day. However, for fans to truly experience all the endings and secrets, they will need to download these updates as they become available. With Kingdom Hearts 3 with so many narratives coming together, fans should probably make sure to receive these updates when they come out so they can fully experience the story that has been going on for so long.
Kingdom Hearts 3 launches January 29 for PS4 and Xbox One.
