The next generation installments of two of Square Enix?s overwhelmingly popular Japanese role playing game franchises, Final Fantasy 15 and Kingdom Hearts 3, will not be showing their presence for this year?s E3 event. The confirmation was done by Square Enix?s Producer Shinji Hashimoto.
These two games have been rumored to supposedly have a presence at E3 events for a long time now (numbering in the years) but it still hasn?t seen the light of day. Fans of the latest Kingdom Hearts installment got excited when a recent trailer for Kingdom Hearts 2.5 HD Remix showed a teaser for Kingdom Hearts 3 at the end of the video. The two games won?t be coming to Los Angeles for this year?s expo but Hashimoto explained that the company is working to share details for the two games sometime after the E3 event.
Hashimoto had this to say about Final Fantasy 15: ?First I’d like to say that development for?Final Fantasy 15?is going well. Internally, we try to ascertain the best timing for revealing new information about?Final Fantasy 15?to the fans. So when we were going over our promotion plans, we judged that this year’s E3 would not be the best time to exhibit information about Final Fantasy 15.?
Hashimoto went on to say that they are currently planning to exhibit new information for events that will come after E3 2014. They are very excited to share the information and are very grateful for the fans? enthusiasm for the game but they are looking to share the information when the timing is right.
While news for Final Fantasy 15 looks promising, it isn?t looking to be as good for Kingdom Hearts 3. Hashimoto said that their developers are eagerly working on the latest Kingdom Hearts game but said that they wouldn?t be sharing anything else about it at E3 as well. Hopefully, there will be news for the game in the next coming months as well.
Final Fantasy 15 has been 8 years in the making as it was announced at E3 2006 as Final Fantasy Versus 13. The name change to Final Fantasy 15 was announced at last year?s E3 event. Kingdom Hearts 3 has been rumored to be in development for a long time running and a formal announcement was made at E3 of last year as well. Both titles were said to be coming to the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One.
