Today Square Enix made an announcement via press release about the opening theme song of the upcoming JRPG Kingdom Hearts III.
The song is titled “Face My Fears” and is a collaboration between iconic Japanese singer Hikaru Utada and American DJ Sonny John “Skrillex” Moore.
The song itself will be released as a single on January 18th, 2019 in both English and Japanese versions alongside the ending song Don’t Think Twice (titled Oath in Japan). This is just a few days before the game’s release in Japan on January 25th, and in the west on January 29th.
Apparently, Skrillex has been a fan of the series for a long time, and he originally asked to remix Don’t think twice. However this has since evolved into a new full-fledged collaboration.
We also learn that Poo Bear will act as the Producer for the song.
The game will release for PS4 and Xbox One. In case you didn’t pre-order your copy yet, you can do so right now on Amazon.
Incidentally, the Kingdom Hearts III just won our Tokyo Game Show 2018 award for best RPG.
