More than a month before the release.

It looks like copies of Kingdom Hearts 3 are out in nature, and some who have got their hands on them have apparently started leaking parts of the game online.
Reported by Eurogamer, various videos and pictures of the leak have been made online, including the title screen, games and other. One person was alleged to sell copies of the game on the Facebook market (a list that has since been removed), and many fans are careful to meet spoilers for a sequel they have been waiting for 13 years to play.
For those who want to be proactive in order to avoid spoilers for Kingdom Hearts 3, many websites, including Twitter, advanced muting options which allows users to completely block key phrases. Similar blocking tools can be used for browsers, search engines and more.
While a game that is playing this long before its release date is rare, Kingdom Hearts 3 managed back in November, and it is reasonable that copies of the game end up in nature with such a large window.

Kingdom Hearts 3 is coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One worldwide on January 29th.
