Looks like it'll be quiet on the Square Enix front at E3 this year.
While fans were hoping to get some news concerning Final Fantasy XV and Kingdom Hearts III , the company says this year's show "is not the most suitable time to release such information."
In a recent Famitsu interview (as translated by Kotaku ), Square Enix boss Shinji Hashimoto said FFXV is moving along smoothly, but they don't have anything new to say about it right now. However, there is a silver lining:
"First, I just want to say that Final Fantasy XV's development is progressing favorably. In the company, we're always trying to figure out the optimal timing to release new information to the fans. We decided that this year's E3 is not the most suitable time to release such information. Instead, we are preparing for an event after E3 to make new announcements."
Well, that's something to look forward to, right? As for KHIII, Hashimoto said they're simply "working hard on the game" and they need "some more time" before they start making any new announcements. If you remember, the third and long-awaited Kingdom Hearts entry was revealed at last year's E3.
Guess they can't be expected to wow us two years in a row.
