The free DLC for Kingdom Hearts 3 will add Critical Mode which sets out to be quite different from previous ones released in the series.
Kingdom Hearts 3 Critical Mode Releases on April 23rd
In a Twitter post by the Director Tetsuya Nomura on the official Kingdom Hearts’ account, an announcement was shared with the release date for the free DLC update which will add Critical Mode to Kingdom Hearts 3. The new mode will be available on April 23rd PT. The mode was revealed earlier this year, set to add further difficulty for those looking for more of a challenge.
The tweet also revealed that the mode will be different from previous iterations in the franchise, but not much else was shared about the changes. Nomura has previously described the mode in an interview to be “fun like only Critical mode can be”. Previous titles have added increased damage dealt by enemies, but it looks like this won’t be the case for KH3.
Greetings, it’s been a while since I last posted. 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 pic.twitter.com/Npz8FeKmCK

This is not the only release KH3 will have this year, a story DLC is set to release by the end of 2019 and it will not have a Final Remix version but instead further DLC content.
Kingdom Hearts 3 is available to play on Playstation 4 and Xbox One with the free DLC Critical Mode launching on April 23rd PT.
