Nomura Waiting For Next Opportunity To Reveal New FF XV Info, Gives Update On Kingdom Hearts 3

GearNuke: Kingdom Hearts 3 and Final Fantasy XV were revealed to the E3 audience this year but we haven’t seen much of them afterwards. Tetsuya Nomura talks about both games in his latest interview to Famitsu. (Final Fantasy XV, Kingdom Hearts 3, PS4, Tetsuya Nomura, Xbox One)

Nomura is probably waiting for Sony to get FFXV running smoothly on PS4. Plus, probably most Japanese developer demanding Sony to make their games run on smoothly PS4 since PS3's cell architecture complexity made Mark Cerny chose x86 architecture to make Japanese programmer & engineers return to Playstation, which most of them had migrated to ARM architecture. Plus it's highly-probable that Sony is the console-level programmer for FFXV, smooth gameplay awaits.

Greatness Awaits! :D

@your other comment below as well

Sorry but where are you getting this info? or are you just talking out of your ass? literally every single word.
HelpfulGamer  +   776d ago

See even Sony helping SquareEnix Translate Drakengard 3 into Chinese!

Sony Tech Support to Developer is nothing new as they have done it for Bayonetta, Demon Souls, Dark Souls, Disgaea 4, Atelier Meruru, Ar tonelico.

Sony could probably be the one making FFXV right now, interpolating with the public data such as Uncharted like game mechanics, Sony's Japan Studio Physics tech, Plus Sony owns 8% of SquareEnix.

Greatness Await!

That doesn't actually prove Square and "most Japanese developers demanding Sony to make their games run on smoothly on PS4"

Jack? You ok? Check to see if your head is took a pretty nasty head cracking about 30 minutes ago. I think this person may have in fact kicked some sand into your vaginal area. Happy Holidays!!

LOOK, all i wanted to know is how this dude knew Nomura was "Waiting for SONY to get FFXV running on a PS4." as well as other Japanese devs and their games.

Or how he knew(this is from his second comment below, that hardly even makes sense.) "SE was neither successful on porting FFXV to PS3 and X360"

also he assumes because the lack of FFXV news their lacking the capabilities to get FFXV running on PS4/XBONE.
Bowzabub  +   776d ago
Jack..I was clearly instigating. I was just fuggin' with ya bro. But going by how the response came with links that were laid out pretty well it appears this person is very interested in this matter and very passionate about the topic. Nothing in this world is FOR CERTAIN, but I think this person is on to something. Again, I was just messing with you and I apologize. Merry Christmas &/or Happy Holidays.
EXVirtual  +   777d ago
Good thing he's planning in advance at letting us know about it.
The question is, when else can they show it aside from E3 2014? Could SE be having a conference or something before then?
colonel179  +   777d ago
They can do a conference like they did in January 2011 or they can do a Final Fantasy conference too. However, I think they will show more either at Japanese PS4 launch or after.

The games are for PS4 and Xbox One, and none of the console have launched there yet, so most likely they will show more of the game until after the PS4 launches (since there is no date for XBO yet). Final Fantasy will likely release in Japan first (instead of a worldwide launch) so they need to have the consoles out first.

EDIT: and like other comments below state, they need to release Lighting Returns first.

They could have totally done a conference on the 18th of december, sure it isn't a milestone in final fantasy history, but I think after 26 years they could have a conference every year on the 18th to release news about upcoming final fantasy projects. For those that don't know, the 18th of december is when the first final fantasy released, 26 years ago.
EXVirtual  +   775d ago
You're right.
When the PS4 releases in Japan. That's when the time is right.
I hope they do an FF conference. I don't want to wait until E3.

KonsoruMasuta  +   777d ago
They would have a bigger audience and chance to wow more people if they waited for some kind of big event.
TheGrimReaper0011  +   777d ago
sure, but when's the last time we heard ANY news of Final Fantasy 15?
Only at E3 2013 and it was mostly to confirm that the name had changed
They have teased this since when? may 2006?
And we know so little about the game
If they are going to wait and wait and tell us nothing, then we got another "The Last Guardian" on our hands
I give up trying to be excited for The Last Guardian
Final Fantasy 15 is getting there as well
Kingdom Hearts at least has some info every month or so

A port is still a port :) Enjoy your port lol
HelpfulGamer  +   777d ago
FFXV was develop and is playable on PC. But SquareEnix neither succesful in porting FFXV to X360 nor the PS3.

It is probable that SquareEnix lacking the capabilities to get FFXV running on neither Xbox One nor the PS4. (reflecting on the lack of FFXV news)

Thus it depends on the console maker to port FFXV on their console. Sony is probably very busy porting FFXV source code to be playable on PS4. Similar to what Sony did in getting Bayonetta playable on PS3.

Greatness Awaits! :D

@ KillerBanana7 that was a very poor comment. You think a port will be that much less enjoyable than the original one???

@Josephayal while I am for Multi-platform and competition, I feel like the Xbox360 damaged what the FF XIII was going to be like since they add to take contents out so that it matches the Xbox360. I wished FF XV had stayed exclusives so that I can feel I am getting the best possible experience in the game. But Xbox One uses Blue Ray now. I hope they can still deliver what was planned and not having to cut contents again...
JodyCones  +   777d ago
Are you seriously saying you're going to play it on xbone? You know they get the port right? All ff and kh games are developed on PlayStation because it sells better there and that's where it originated from. All the fans are there. It will be in 1080p on PS4 and marketed for the PS4.
Hicken  +   777d ago
FF got its start on PlayStation, but it definitely hit it's peak there. KH DID get its start on playstation, but that series has been all over the place. That said, both franchises still call Sony hardware home more often than not.

@hicken ff got it's start on Nintendo. Just wanting that made clear. I was too young to play ff on Nintendo but was a huge playstation era fan
Hicken  +   777d ago
I meant that. Phone screwed up and ate words while I was typing. Noticed it was wrong and tried to edit, but edited the wrong words back in, lol.

Yes, it started on Nintendo. I began my FF- and JRPG- career with Mystic Quest, believe it or not, back in like 95 or something.
nunley33  +   776d ago
It'll also sell and (perform) play a lot better on PS4.

Please be excited for E3 next year...
EXVirtual  +   777d ago
What if they have a conference befor E3 next year? They did it in 2011, remember?
Either that, or they take the online route, which would be preferable.
I think they'll start marketing the game more heavily when the PS4 is released in Japan.
sssb  +   777d ago
I hope we see release date in next trailer, this game take long makes fans can't wait any longer.
DEATHxTHExKIDx  +   777d ago
I at least want a release date for FFXV at E3 2014. Personally I'm betting on 2015 for Japan and States. It's a good thing there's a lot of games coming next year to hold me over.
MoB21  +   777d ago
Im assuming (hoping) that Nomura/Square is waiting until after Lightning Returns launches for an info blowout + release date. I'm sure if they announced a date at Jump Festa it would surely hurt Lightning Returns sales and takeaway all it's attention
torchic  +   777d ago
he was saying this same shit in the Versus XIII days...

please Nomura don't do this to us again omg...
EXVirtual  +   777d ago
This is FF15. Intentional, or not, SE put themselves under a bit more pressure when they decided to change the name from Final Fantasy Versus XIII to Final Fantasy XV. It's no longer a spinoff.
torchic  +   777d ago
that's the one thing that keeps me going. they definitely put the pressure on themselves by making it a main series title but Versus XIII was Square's marquee project anyway, they knew how much hype it had and still struggled to get it out.
DarkZane  +   777d ago
It could even come out in 2014. Lightning Returns is already released in japan and coming out in the west in february. The only other things they're releasing is FFX/X-2 and KH2.5, which are 2 remakes. I can't see Square-Enix not releasing any new material for 2014.
thejigisup  +   777d ago
May 2006...we are coming into the year 2014. No release date, no demo, no game. I have been following this game since speculation began. It's rather disappointing that they haven't been more vocal about the game. I feel like announcing this game in 2006 was a mistake.

I'm still super excited to get my hands on this game but i'm going to be expecting something phenomenal, something absolutely perfect. Squaresoft was def by far one of my favorites, then they got enixed and for me its been a bit shaky with the ff series since then. I'm hoping that this game exceeds my standards specially after playing games like mass effect 3, gow 3, TlOU, bioshock infinite, gtav, my short time with ni no kuni. The bar has been raised. 8 years is a long time. I don't want patches, dlc, game breaking issues. I want perfection, and im hoping that they've taken the time to get it right.

Nomura Waiting For Next Opportunity - every, any, all day(s), please Nomura, I've been waiting since 2006, I want to be spoiled.
Kalebninja  +   777d ago
kingdom hearts came out when I just started school and we're looking at a late 2015 release so i'll be finished with highschool already x(
ZainreFang  +   777d ago
Nomura, I know you may never read this but: I'm a big Kingdom Hearts fan and if you brought Kingdom Hearts 3 to the Wii U it would mean the world to me. Thanks.
No_Pantaloons  +   777d ago
It's sad people even still care when they dangle this carrot in front of you. I guarantee this game is going to bomb, and even if I'm somehow wrong and its amazing, it still wouldn't be worth the time and effort spent talking about it. It had its time to shine, that time is long long gone. Until it's released it deserves no hype, and anything but a permanent release date should get him a swift backhand across the face.
feraldrgn  +   777d ago
FF15: All I'm worried about is if it's as linear & "cinematic" as FF13.

Oh, I phibbed, I'm also worried if they decide to have "online" content in a jRPG.
Kalebninja  +   777d ago
dude its open world and u can play as the other worries needed....unless they changed it
