Kingdom Hearts III gets a little bit tougher tomorrow


Donald will be droppin F'bombs

Square Enix will be releasing an update for Kingdom Hearts III tomorrow that adds back the series' patented "Critical" difficulty option. A step above the current hard mode, it should provide a suitable challenge for series veterans and anyone that has played III to death since it released.

Series director Tetsuya Nomura announced the news in a Tweet from the Kingdom Hearts Twitter account, though didn't offer any details on how the game's various parameters will be tweaked.

I certainly enjoyed my time with Kingdom Hearts III, but it definitely could have been harder. I don't have an issue with anyone selecting Easy or asking for a wider range of options, but "Proud" mode was anything but a challenge. Maybe the expanded combat options made things less taxing, but I'll definitely be giving "Critical" mode a shot in the future.
