Kingdom Hearts 3 'Critical Mode' arriving today

The ultra-hard mode for Kingdom Hearts 3 will be available today, with the director promising something special for this version of the series' Critical Mode.

Kingdom Hearts 3 players will receive an update to the game today, adding the series staple Critical Mode. This ultra-difficult mode has been available in the majority of games in the Kingdom Hearts series since the second game. Historically, it makes enemies deal a lot more damage. A challenge only for the Kingdom Hardcore.

The mode will be available today for no extra cost. This announcement was made via the official Kingdom Hearts twitter account, with a short message from Nomura. In it he states that this version of Critical Mode has been “changed up” since the older games in the franchise. What that means exactly is a mystery. No doubt we’ll know all the details within minutes of the new mode going live.
