Kingdom Hearts III and Final Fantasy XV Will Have to Wait

 Pages PREV 1 2
 

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.

I think Kingdom Hearts III was literally the one title that would've enticed me to purchase a PS4. But no, don't worry Sony, if you dont WANT my money, I'll keep a hold on it.

isn't that a bit much they said to wait not that it wasn't coming

Really getting sick of the super trolling of Kingdom Hearts fans. I already had gigantic sums of hatred directed VS. XIII/XV for holding up the bandwagon, and I thought that E3 had finally put that hatred to rest, but NOPE.

...hurry and come out, KH3 D:

Okay. So with all that being said:

When can we expect Final Fantasy 15? Because honestly, it looks pretty good. I'd like to see a little unscripted gameplay before I get my hopes up, but it looks like a very strong contender to restore some of Square's image. Maybe.

Who am I kidding? I'll probably end up buying both at launch. Final Fantasy, why is it so hard to quit you?

Zombie_Moogle:
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

Especially good when you consider that it's disc-based games that's killing them.

Like, totally.

Wait. What? How does this have anything to do with Sony? They aren't the ones developing the game. That's Square-Enix.

Honestly, this comment mystifies me. I'm almost convinced it's not serious.

It's not too much at all. I'm not going to buy a console and just have it sit around gathering dust until the ONE game I want to play is released.

Goddammit Square! You could have dismissed all the damn hype if you hadn't announced the game. Developers need a rule that they shouldn't announce something at E3 unless it's coming out within a year of that E3. Now you're in the position Valve has themself in. People have been waiting for years, hype is building, and nothing will satisfy.

Admittedly, you do make much better games than Valve (everyone does), but 3D Realms made pretty good games too and look what happened there.

its too harsh man that is the problem

Guys, this isn't news. They announced this well over six years ago. The president said this, company reps said this, and Nomura said this. Why do you think it's taking so long? He can only work on so much at a time, and FF15 has been absorbing his attention for the entire generation. Is it right that it has taken this long to produce a single title? No, but Square Enix already made all this information clear a LONG time ago. This isn't anything we didn't already know.

When did this become news? The Wikipedia page for Kingdom hearts 3 has said this for months. I checked it a bit before E3 and it essentially said; 'the director of the series is working on another project, so basically nothing has been done yet.'

I grow to hate Sqenix more every year. Still, this year in gaming hasn't been as bad as some previous.

But god damn, square. get your shit together

Because getting your shit together is clearly for idiots. Here's a tip Square, maybe you should, I don't know, actually PLAN THINGS OUT before you announce things, that'd probably work.

But then again, if you did that you wouldn't seem like a dog with a bag on its head, and that's obviously something you're fond of.

I wasn't expecting it for a few years at least anyway, I've waited for a long time, I can wait even longer. Though this long wait is taking a toll on my love of the series, I need closure Square!

On the other hand, if they make it the best they can, it will probably be worth it...right? :(

typical.... Fuckin' typical....

Just... just release something. I don't care which one comes out first I just want one of them out.
*cries in the cornor.*

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.'

Well, at least KH doesn't ACTUALLY fall into the "release-a-game-a-year" status, although it has come close a few times...

TiberiusEsuriens:
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

With that said, I can't wait for two more "unnamed" KH games to come out for the Vita and Xbox One before KH3 gets an actual release date...[1]

The KH game on the Vita would be the side prequel to KH3, where you play as Kairi (and sometimes Lea) during another Mark of Mastery exam... It would feature flashbacks of Kairi that have never been seen before, giving you more of a deep character background for this Keyblade Master-in-training... (If you had tears during Roxas and Xion's connected story, then you're going to need a bucket because your tissues would not handle the FEELS..)

The KH game for the Xbox One would not only be an HD collection, but would have ALL the playable KH games in "SUPER" HD, with a "BETTER" cinematic movie that ties in all loose ends to all of the now-unplayable KH games leading up to KH3... with an added playable teaser to FFXV... (I guess... I wouldn't know... I still wouldn't have an Xbox One by then, anyway...)

TiberiusEsuriens:
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.

..And then, that leads to a problem I have with this series that I REALLY REALLY like... It feels weird playing it in their canon timeline order... It actually feels better playing them all (including both versions of Chain of Memories) in the order they were first released, though it's kinda too late for the GBA... and DS(?)... and PSP(?)[2]

OT: Yeah, sure... I can wait... I can put another "Countdown to 3" timer next to my Half-Life "Countdown to 3" timer... Let the predicable race begin on which game will come first... I would place my bets, but I don't like gambling... So, I'll just get back to re-beating 1.5's Final Mix... (I also wish luck to FFXV... I do hope they get their full priorities check before they trip over someone's shoelace... We don't want to have more delays on our hands now...)

[1] Eh... It could happen... But, still...
[2] Probably not, but still...

I think the "unknown game" might be the one alluded to in the secret ending for Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep Final Mix, Birth by Sleep Volume 2, to be quite honest because it would explain a lot. Sadly the secret endings for BbS Final Mix get hit with copyright claims so fast you'd think that it was EMI Studios Japan filing them, but it's Square Enix. The ending is on other sites, and the ones on YouTube have their colors inverted to avoid copyright.

The ending basically shows certain things happening and takes place in the 10 year gap that a certain someone spent in the Realm of Darkness. It also shows another character who was thought to be dead, to actually be alive, but he can't remember much. :3

Oh yeah... Almost forgot about Volume 2... (despite still remembering all of the BbS Final Mix cutscenes, that secret ending, and that one boss fight that happens in the Realm of Darkness...) That might also add in a cutscene involving Kairi or something, so my "trying-to-be-internet-sarcastic" involving a KH Vita game might of had some barring... if not none...

Maybe 2.5 would answer this "Volume 2" situation... *pauses* Huh... Adding more wait to the KH waiting list? I don't know... Maybe they'll turn Volume 2 into something that's integrated into KH3... Probably a stretch, but still...

I love how people are raging over something that has been known for years lol.

Square already said that FFXV (or Versus XIII) comes first. KH has to wait until that game is finished.

And for the people that are saying that Square announced KH3 for the PS3, Hahahaha! Umm... no, the E3 2013 trailer was THE FIRST TIME Square acknowledged that they are actually working on KH3 currently. There was never any kind of announcement for KH3 for the PS3 (Trust me! I looked.... desperately!).

There were plenty of people ASSUMING it would come out for the PS3, but it was never confirmed. Just like people assumed that that Birth By Sleep trailer at the end of KH2 was the trailer for KH3.

The only thing I can say is, I hope it was worth the wait. For these games to have taken this long, Square had better bring their A game. Because if they made us wait 7 years for anything less than excellent, well.... let's just say that might be the straw that broke the camel's back.

I have no problem waiting for a truly excellent game. It's waiting this long for a sub-par game that would really tick me off.
