Kingdom Hearts 3 Re: Mind Is Already Annoying

Kingdom Hearts 3 Re: Mind has finally been announced at Sony’s State of Play address. The DLC is coming out on Jan. 23, 2020 for PS4 and Feb. 25, 2020 for Xbox One.

Before Conor McGregor came along, the idea of UFC fighters competing in boxing was considered little more than a sideshow diversion.
