The Game Inquirer says: "It seems the highly anticipated next entry in the Kingdom Hearts series may be arriving much sooner than we expected."
Wasn't Final Fantasy XV supposed to come before Kingdom Hearts III? Not that I complain
I say there is no way they would release a game that was announced just last year. SE games are renowned for suffering in development hell for years before finally getting released. After the FFvsXIII debacle (8 years and still waiting) it is just too painful to get your hopes up... It is better to prepare yourself to wait for at least 3 more years. They made me wait almost 5 years for Kingdom Hearts 2!
Kingdom Hearts 3 could be easier to develop than Final Fantasy XV, reflecting how many kingdom hearts games there are, Kingdom Hearts, Kingdom Hearts Chain of Memories, Kingdom Hearts II, Kingdom Hearts coded, Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days, Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance III HD 1.5 Remix, HD 2.5 Remix (HD remaster) With the simplicity if Kingdom Hearts world, the experiences & skills SquareEnix have from Kingdom Hearts HD, they could release Kingdom Hearts 3 in 2014.
@SquareSoft This. Kingdom of Hearts does not look something hard to develop compared to others games, such as Infamous, Final Fantasy, etc. It has a simplistic feel to the game.
I'd prefer to see FFXV first and I don't believe this in the slightest anyway. We've seen a LOT more of FFXV so it should be a lot farther along in development. I'm buying both regardless of released date though, the sooner the better.
It's also made by the same director (and team)... who also said numerous times over the years that he would finish Versus/XV before starting development on KH3. That trailer of KH3 wasn't actual game footage either. It was only meant as a teaser.
haha no way, it's coming out after FFXV and we don't even know whet that game is coming out
I saw FF15 in pre order so it shouldn't last much longer to come
Yeah ... that's not happening.
I'm sure they have had the story planned for nearly a decade. Seriously. It probably wont take that long to complete.
I'm pretty sure it is not
Lol no... I've been saying for a while late 2014 japan will get FFXV and early to mid 2015 they'll get KHIII but KHIII in 2014 just wont happen
How about waiting for TGS announcements / teases ? Thinking that KH3 will release in 2014 is just a wishful thinking TBH with you ~
i doubt it will be this year but "hopefully" it gets released next year
Not true. I hope its not anyway: I've waited quite a few years for this game, I can wait till the middle of 2016 for this if it means FFXV comes out in 2015.
Seems very unlikely, but I wouldn't complain if it did!
Just replayed KH2, man do I hate the Disney chars lol. But the combat is solid, fun as shit still. Excited for 3
"Let's release KH2.5HD and KH3 in the same year! We won't be cannibalizing our own sales!" Do you see how dumb you sound now?
Added link to Square Enix release schedule at bottom of post ;)
2.5 only confirmed for PS3, 3 confirmed for just next gen. So sales shouldn't suffer.
It's so dumb though, why would they release 2.5HD that is lesser quality (technically) than KH3? Also, this has been debunked: http://www.gamespot.com/art...
As much as I would love for KH3 to be released this year I don't see it happening. My guess is late 2015 given that the director actually said that they revealed the game a little to soon, and Square Enix is notoriously slow at bringing games to market. Hope I'm wrong and it does come out this year, but it just feels like wishful thinking to me.
lol this year in december meaby...
I will believe it when I see it.
2017, if that.
I really hope not. I'm not saying i don't want it (damn, i adore KH!!!) but i'd prefer if they use all their talent for FF XV. I miss a good FF game and that seemed perfect for me. If only it didn't take ages to be released... =P
No way cause A KH 2.5 HD is coming this year B it was just announce last year e3.
Doubt it. FFXV better be almost done then.
2016 sounds better!
Yeah I agree. The reason I believe it will be in 2016( probably q3 or even q4) is because Normura stated like five years ago he wanted too release a new kh game every year and he has ever since 358/2 days I believe. So this year 2.5 remix and then Chi next year. That should give square enough time too make another amazing kh game, at least it SHOULD lol.
2017, after SE announce they're pushing FFXV back further.
it better not it needs at least another year of work. this game needs to be big
not gonna happen, I can bet my left nut on that one. I think the main reasons as to why KH3 may be a winter 2015 release date is because Square made it loud and clear when they showed the E3 teaser saying "Now in development". The game is being developed as we speak most likely by a separate Square team. Also some interviews with Square reveal that the haven't even figured out the worlds they will use in the game. So as much as I would love KH3 this year (just finished KH 1.5 yesterday actually) I don't see it happening. Plus I would much rather have the long awaited FF15 and finally have a proper FF game to play.
