Kingdom Hearts III and Final Fantasy XV Will Have to Wait

Kingdom Hearts III logo

Kingdom Hearts fans have been waiting for the conclusion to the Xehanort saga as well as answers to dozens of questions, but fans are going to have to keep on waiting.

After years of fan speculation on when Square Enix would finally work on Kingdom Hearts III, the announcement at E3 this year confirmed that Square Enix was indeed creating the next installment to the series. However, the wait will have to continue as the director for the project, Tetsuya Nomura, is working on Final Fantasy XV at the same time.

"Both have Tetsuya Nomura as their director, so we can't create these two big games at the same time," Kingdom Hearts producer Shinji Hashimoto told IGN. Hashimoto explained that the company decided to announce Kingdom Hearts III despite lack of significant progress because speculation had been rampant. "A lot of people have wondered for the last couple of years if Square Enix has actually been working on Kingdom Hearts III; that's why we announced it at E3 this year. But please, we need you all to understand that there's a lot to do."

Final Fantasy XV was officially announced in 2006 and originally called Final Fantasy Versus XIII. Nomura is still working heavily on the game. Final Fantasy XV has been in development for years, and seeing how common the presence of Final Fantasy characters are in the Kingdom Hearts games, it would not be surprising to see Kingdom Hearts III have to wait until Final Fantasy XV nears completion.

Kingdom Hearts II was released in the U.S. in 2006. Seven years is a long wait for the conclusion to the Xehanort saga, and it looks like we're all going to have to wait longer.

That's typical. KH3 announced as a PS3 title to rally up sales of the machine, only to find later they'll have to wait likely a VERY long time for it to appear on store shelves. Anyone else reminded of the Gran Turismo 5 fiasco? Or even the still-in-limbo 'The Last Guardian'?

CAPTCHA: IS IT ENOUGH

No, I guess it isn't.

And Square Enix wonders why it's games need to move 5 million copies to be considered profitable. Could it be because you keep every title in development for years and years so that by the time they ship they're grossly over their budget? Could it be because you're setting unreasonable goals, teasing fans so early that they get excited too soon and then that excitement turns to dismay? Nope, must just be the cost of the DVD manufacturing.

Longer it takes for KH3 to come out, the longer before I need to buy a PS4.

I'm guessing all those handheld games don't count story-wise, eh Escapist?

KH3 was never announced for the PS3. You mean PS4?

Oh, well that makes sense. As long as the payoff is worth it in the end, I can wait. I don't want us who're still waiting on these two titles to end up like those disappointed Duke Nukem fans.

I thought this was common knowledge years ago. That's why a lot of KH fans were up in arms when it was said the Versus team (now XV I suppose) was being shifted to work on Lightning Returns.

Can't they just hand the project over to somebody who isn't Nomura? The guy isn't irreplaceable for crying out loud.

I dont mind waiting, I really don't. Iron out those bugs and polish it all up before another game sends me into a Rome 2 rage......which is still ongoing.

Not officially, but it was consistently teased as a launch title. KH3 is like Half Life 3; no matter how much you say it isn't happening everyone will still think it is. It doesn't help that they say "making the next KH game" and then make all the side games. If it's not the third KH game don't call it KH3 Square, you're just getting everyone's hopes up.

I'm actually okay with this. The Kingdom Hearts games (the main ones, anyway) don't end on cliffhangers. Okay, so Kingdom Hearts did, but it wasn't a bleak cliffhanger--and it wasn't even really a cliffhanger to me. Sora, Donald, and Goofy were fine and continuing their adventure to get back home. And Kingdom Hearts II I thought ended the series. I had no idea there was supposed to be a third one that continues the main cast's story. Unlike other series, which end with utterly crushing cliffhangers and then expect you to wait for YEARS (glares at Valve), I don't need to know what happens. So yeah, I'm okay with waiting for the next game, no matter how long it takes.

KH3, rearrange the letters, go back one letter for the K and you get HL3... Squeenix confirms HALFLIFE3!!!

well as long as its made i don't care how long it takes besides doing anything but wait is pointless

i have to wonder what you mean by that last part

Oh, we're gonna have to wait even longer?

Square, I thought you were trying to get it together? Focus on & release one, then I'd be fine waiting for the other

I wonder if they're trying to get fans of both franchises to have a battle royale and the last fan group standing gets their game finished first. On the 1 hand go FFXV, on the other the longer it takes to get it out the longer I can put off a decision for buying the PS4 and if the cost would be worth it, since I'll be waiting for reviews before buying both items anyway.

Zombie_Moogle:

Misleading title aside, that's what the article says they're doing. They're working on Final Fantasy XV, and will be focusing on Kingdom Hearts after that is released, or at least close to finished. Which is what I expected to happen, personally. Dunno why the title added FF XV to the "will have to wait".

A game only JUST announced a few months ago and you are complaining that you have to wait? A game which has had no actual work done and, much like the Battlefront trailer, was only made for the E3 announcement and nothing more? Yet you and others complain that the game won't be released for years...

I don't get you people.

james.sponge:

Nomura created Kingdom Hearts, I would prefer that he stay on at the very least to finish the story he began (since KH3 will end the Xehanort Saga and begin something new after it). Same with Final Fantasy XV, it was created by Nomura and I would rather it not go through multiple Project Leads and end up being a subpar game like so many before it.

CAPTCHA: IS IT ENOUGH

No, I guess it isn't.

Kingdom Hearts 3 was never announced as a PS3 title. If you heard that it was only speculation by fans/random game sites. Nomura/Square have not said that it was to be released on PS3. Unless you have evidence to refute this?

No surprise. The KH3 E3 preview showed like, ten seconds of gameplay and "Now in development." As in, it's very possible that they just started making it this year. I very much doubt we will see it in 2014.

As for FFXV, a release mid-late next year seems likely. Though as long as it has taken, I wouldn't be surprised if they take even longer with it.

What he means is that despite it's title being KH3, it is not the third title in the series; they're actually up to something like 5 or 6 games in the franchise. Even then KH3 isn't the 3rd game to advance the main story as Chain of Memories for the GBA [1], and KH: Dream Drop Distance advance the plot between KH1 and 2, and KH2 and 3 respectively. Going by that, KH3 is more like KH5. In terms of the games that aren't hand-held spin-offs, a prequel, or gap fillers, KH3 is the third entry into the main plot thread that shares its combat mechanics with 1 and 2; the games that come between the 3 often have contrived variations of the system that's in 1, 2, and presumably 3.

Yes, because Nomura has spent so much time on FF13 Versus FF15 [2] we have ended up with a contrived web of hand-held games that mostly run on the same technology from the PS2[3], and have been trying desperately to find way to keep the franchise alive till Nomura ceases dicking around on Versus FF15, and burning boatloads of SE money.

I honestly don't expect we'll see KH3 before 2017 or, god forbid, the start of the next decade.

[1] re-released to the PS2 with console graphics as Re: Chain of Memories
[2] no thanks in part to him scrapping the game when it was almost ready to go to print originally
[3] Obviously so they don't have to spend money on bringing the series up to modern visual standards until KH3 proper is released; not necessarily a bad thing

Meh, it's been said but I'm gonna say it again. This is exactly why their games don't meet sales expectations. Square Enix is going down and it's their own damn fault. It's like that old analogy about hitting your hand with a hammer. You keep hitting it, and when someone asks why you don't stop, you just say, "But it hurts". Of course it hurts, you are wasting time, money and consumer good will.

KeyMaster45:

I look at it this way, if I can actually get completely caught up and LP every single Kingdom Hearts game before Kingdom Hearts 3 comes out, then yay I guess. Seriously I did the first Final Mix over a year ago and I'm barely on Re: CoM for YouTube now. XD

So there is no news at all except that Escapist journalists still love to make misleading titles. Wait, even that isn't news. We already knew this, they said it explicitly many different times.

Um...No? A Kingdom Hearts 3 was announced by Square long long ago. The first actual teaser doesn't mean it was it's first announcement. And the trailer, having been in an actual game engine, being of actual gameplay, and stating to be in production(not pre-production, production, as in all scripts, stories, and characters are made and done, along with level design and enemies and bosses and balancing and what not), it is still disappointing to hear that it is quite a ways off, not just a little more to go. Not to mention, it has been 7 years since the last main line Kingdom Hearts, so it's not exactly asking for much for there to have been a little bit more done on it.

The Kingdom Hearts Games:
Kingdom Hearts (PS2)
KH: Chain of memories (GBA)
Kingdom Hearts 2 (PS2)
Kingdom Hearts Coded (Mobile)
KH 358/2 Days (DS)
KH Birth By Sleep (PSP)
KH 3D Dream Drop Distance (3DS)

That doesn't include console ports or Japan exclusives:
KH Final Mix (PS2 Japan)
KH Re:Chain of memories (PS2)
Kingdom Hearts Re:Coded (DS)
KH 2 Final Mix (PS2 Japan)
KH 1.5 HD Compilation (PS3)
Plus a few more than they don't even tell outsiders about

Apparently after 7 games and a bunch of secretive ports they're only working on "the 3rd part." Seriously, they're worse than AssCreed in this regard, just below the likes of 'Call of Duty 7: PostModern Warfare 6, The Third One.'

Every single time they release a new game they first tease it being the 'next major installment' in the series, leading everyone to think that is it KH3. They then proceed to create a new game for a device no one currently has and call it a necessary part of the story. Fans are obviously confused and ask about KH3. Square's response has always been incredibly squeemish (like Gabe Newell/Valve is with Half life 3). This has been happening since 2007.

"What!? When we said we were making the next KH game you thought we were actually making the next KH game? I'm sorry you were mislead. We meant to say we were making another one, but it isn't actually the next." -SquareEnix

The game numbering rant:
There's the first Kingdom Hearts, but that is really #2, KH CoM is actually #4 as it starts after the end of 1, KH2 is actually #5, Coded takes place at roughly the same time as 2 so it's #6, 358/2 starts during the end of 1 so it's #3, BBS is actually the first part of the series so #1, and DDD actually is the latest at #7. Calling it KH3 'makes sense' because there is no '3' yet, but it is really #8.

well that will teach me to ask that kind of question. i will never understand people like you

ok we have all these game but there not really the third one but since we have all those other ones lets call it kh8 does that make sense

Tony2077:

It's quite obvious that Square Enix subscribes to the number counting method that Capcom has, because I'm pretty sure there are way more than 6 Resident Evil games. XD

Not to mention, it has been 7 years since the last main line Kingdom Hearts, so it's not exactly asking for much for there to have been a little bit more done on it.

All they said was that there would be a formal Kingdom Hearts 3, I hardly consider that an announcement of the game being made (as in it is in pre-production).

Also, in what world do you live in where a game that is in-production (which it currently is as you said) consists of all characters, story, gameplay, level design and bosses already finished? Do you understand what game design is? Do you understand how long it is to create these models, these character designs, the worlds, items, bosses, leveling and on top of all that the rather complex story, finishing it, putting a bow on it, and tieing up all loose ends? All the while making new design choices (which happens more often than not in the actual designing of the game, not in pre-production). Things change, new ideas sprout up, things are moved or removed. Game design is not nearly as simple as you think it is.

It is at the VERY LEAST 5% done.

Also, no. It has been 7 years since the last NUMBERED release of Kingdom Hearts, however every single game (except 358/2 and RE:Coded to an extent) moves the story along quite a bit. Birth By Sleep (released 3 years ago and considered by Square/Nomura to be "Kingdom Hearts 0") and Dream Drop Distance, released just last year moved the story along a lot. Saying that they are "side stories" and not important (which is how you are making it sound) is incredibly naive and quite frankly idiotic.

TiberiusEsuriens:

So you mean to tell me that NO ONE currently had a GBA when Chain of Memories released? NO ONE currently had a DS for RE:Coded or 358/2? NO ONE HAD a 3DS for Dream Drop Distance?

The only one I could understand would be the PSP (since it wasn't very popular in the West to begin with), however this statement of yours is so very wrong.

No, the pre-production stage involves planning out all stages of the game. Whether they fully stick with that or diverge later is completely up to them, however, they do have a plan, otherwise they would not begin working on a game that they have no map for. It's like writing a book a page at a time with no planning for what comes next, yes it can be done, but it typically turns out to be shite. It's the same way for movies, TV shows, hell even paintings, they have to have a plan before hand(more than 5%). Things do change, but they wouldn't go ahead without having some sort of plan. I'm not saying they'll have the characters down to the amount of times they've taken a piss and how that made them the character that they are, but they at least have a plain idea. I know game design isn't simple, it is going to be my profession, and in striving to become a game designer I learned that planning is key, or else you're going nowhere, and from seeing Nomura's other game work, I have faith enough in him that he wouldn't jump in without having some sort of plan before the actual game was made

And I never said they weren't important, however they are still side stories and not the main line series, hence them not getting the number. I love them all and think they all add a great amount to the story and universe and are important to the series, so as a response, putting words into someones mouth is quite frankly idiotic.

Tony2077:

That's the reason for the HD 1.5, and later the HD 2.5, remixes to be honest, well that and the obvious cash grab. They're bundling everything together so then everyone can access the games on one system.

1.5 is out now and it has Re: Chain of Memories, Kingdom Hearts Final Mix, and the cutscenes from 358/2 Days. 2.5 is gonna have Kingdom Hearts 2 Final Mix + more than likely, Birth by Sleep Final Mix, and they'll probably do the cutscenes for Re: Coded like how they did for 358/2 Days again.
You find out about 2.5 from 1.5 after you beat one of the games on the collection. Once you do it'll unlock a special credits on the game select screen that shows stuff that's gonna be in 2.5.

When it comes to Dream Drop Distance I believe they said that they aren't doing an HD remake of that one, but it can change at some point I'm sure.

Congratulations, The Escapist. You're reporting on something that EVERYONE THAT ACTUALLY CARES KNEW MONTHS AGO.
Anyone who gives a shit already knows Nomura is the lead director of both games. He already stated that the KH3 announcement was "a tad early/forced" when he's still very much involved with FFXV. He's a *renowned* perfectionist, he doesn't release a game unless it's completely finished.

And no, KH3 was NOT announced before E3 2013, nor was it for PS3. Any of that is sensationalised rumour. It hasn't *begun* production. Anything that was announced was for 1.5 HD ReMIX or for Dream Drop Distance, not KH3. Get your facts straight.

That E3 trailer, by the way? Not gameplay. Nomura openly admitted it's prerendered, not gameplay at all. Plenty of sites already reported on this. What rock have you been under?

The rock that doesn't allow me to go to other gaming news sites, this is my main source for gaming news. And yes, I knew he was the director of both games, so don't talk down to me like I never knew that. I also knew Kingdom Hearts 3 was coming out after FFXV, this entire article is in no way news, which I had already stated in another comment if you had bothered to look up just one more from the one you just quoted. And as for the production part, unless you have the source stating otherwise, even in the prerendered teaser itself it says it was currently in production, meaning either that was straight false advertisement or YOU are the one that needs to get some of YOUR facts straight. God, if I wasn't on probation, the many things I would not be afraid to say to the many people of high egos and little respect for anyone else.

Most of my post wasn't fully directed at you, but well done going on a wild tangent there.

I do not think you know what "In Production" actually means, especially for a game the scale of Kingdom Hearts 3. I repeat, Nomura is a renowned perfectionist. If it's a *main* title, he's going to fully complete everything. No DLC. Full game.
The words on the teaser trailer were "Currently in Development". You made the assumption in your posts that "the majority of the game is done. Areas, gameplay, characters, story." That's not what "Currently in Development" means. Like, at all. As someone else said, as of that E3 trailer, it was barely 5% made. They're literally in the early design stages. Nothing has been officially announced. FFXV has been Nomura's top priority, and he hasn't been satisfied enough to want to release it in its previous form.

And if you're really getting all your gaming news solely from The Escapist (baaahahahahahahahahahahaha... oh wow..)? I feel bad for you, son. Siliconera or gtfo.

Also; Captcha = SOUND OF SIRENS. Seems legit.

EDIT: "The first actual teaser doesn't mean it was it's first announcement.

Oh, okay, I wasn't aware Squeenix saying "There is going to be a Kingdom Hearts 3" is a binding contract that it's actually being made right then and there. That's not an announcement, that's a statement of something that is highly likely to happen in the future. No solid confirmation was given. The PS4 E3 briefing was the first official showing that it's actually happening next. Anything previously was forced rumour and speculation. And anyone who believes that crap clearly isn't that smart.
