During last night's Japanese launch event of the PS4, Final Fantasy XV and Kingdom Hearts III Producer Shinji Hashimoto had a few words to say about the games under his care.
Yeah but with you guys 'soon' could mean anything from 1 week to 1 decade
I think it's real this time. The game obviously can't be created on last gen so they hold it. Powerful consoles are available so they can do what ever they want. This will be the start of real great final fantasy games because people will support this great game.
No they could of pulled it off, but everytime they would try to do something, they got pulled away to do more crap on FF13, so it would get suspended, and suspended, and suspended, until eventually they pushed it so far back that they had to move it on to the next generation. They could have been done 13 versus a loooooong time ago, but nope now its FF15. And sure there is the possibility it could be better than it was going to be, but with all of these changes they've put into it, having to develop it for 2 consoles, and Square just making poor decisions after poor decisions, I'm not sure its going to be the game that it could be. We're never going to see Square Soft again and that's that I don't think we will ever get games of Soft's quality ever again.
@adventureghosts124 Don't say that! We can't give up yet! -turns off lights, goes to dark corner- I can't give up on my childhood yet.....
Lol It's good that you don't have expectations. When it's released we all gonna know if it's as good or not. All i'm asking for is an announcement of release date early this year so that we get the game next year.
once they release ff14 on ps4, they can throw all resources on FF15 and with PS4 selling so fast, we can this game released as soon as next year.
My thoughts exactly. It happens all the time.
yes they keep saying that.. meaning yrs from now!
He did say that Square Enix was waiting for the PS4 to sell at least 4 million to release Final Fantasy XV. It's now at 5.2 million plus Japan's launch, so he really must have news abut it very very soon.
Please be excited!
lets hope its somewhere around 2015 or early 2016
Final Fantasy XV needs to be released soon, it's been in development for about a decade. Kingdom Hears III should not be rushed, I want SE to really take their time with it
^ this! Even if they halted production or started over with Final Fantasy XV, they should be almost done. Although we now know that the delay is because they are now releasing the game on Xbox One, so yet again they screw PS fans so that they can do the Xbox version. Kingdom Hearts should take no more than 3 years to release. For me, it's a shame that the original team is not working on it since they are still stuck with FFXV. I wish they should finish it quickly so they can focus on KH 3 as it should be.
Until there's a date and a demo, please stop bothering me...
You can always ignore it. Hashimoto didn't exactly knock at your door to deliver the news. When Square Enix is involved, you very much seem to WANT to be bothered.
We've all been through this many times before. We don't want to hear about 'news in the near future', we'd rather have a release date now or nothing at all.
@Chard: then don't read? The headline said it all. Didn't need to click on it. Either you're masochistic, or trolling :D
"You can always ignore it." Not when its been over eight years, weeks of hype surrounding an announcement, then "please be excited" and maybe a trailer which is very different from the last one shown. When I just "ignore it", when you don't have to worry about me making comments in such articles, that means the next FF or Square release will likely sell one million instead of three. I and others wont be that bothered.
Abriael you're a very abrasive person when it comes to your own articles and any dissenting opinions, I always see you attack people. Is it unfathomable for you that people are tired about hearing that news is coming only to be met with a "new" trailer that shows the exact same footage, only touched up? Or that there is no news to talk about? Or that if there is news, it's behind closed doors and can't be talked about? You tell people to ignore it, but they clearly have an interest in FFXV, they just want REAL information, not minutia meant to tide people over. The game has been in development since before the PS3 launched, that's 8 years minimum. Everyone has a right to be jaded at this point. And if YOU don't like it, guess what you can do. That's right, follow your own advice. And, might I add, stop treating your own articles they are your first born children. You're a writer, get used to criticism. I shouldn't even have to say that when no one criticized you (except me just now) and you're still on the offensive.
Near future? So I can expect information in about the same time as I can expect my jet-pack.
I left my unborn son a a email telling him about the game I never got to play hopefully with luck he can play the demo and write his son a future video message detailing the demo
BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!! I want to hear something now.
"Near Future" Suuurrreee whatever you say Hashimoto.
Well, he probably means E3 2014. Isn't Destination PlayStation coming up soon though? My bets still go to E3, but it's a possibility that we could se something.
Soon? Define Soon SquareEnix....
I think we will hear more news about these games at Sony's E3 this year I hope
So, 2017 & 2018 it is then.. /s
Is it sarcasm though?
Please be excited.
So im confident if final fantasy doesnt release until 2016, kingdom hearts 3 will be a 2020 title on ps5
My guess is early next year :)
I wouldnt get my hopes that high. We have barely seen or heard anything about both titles honestly. If they are not at e3 this year dont bank on them coming next year.
I'm ready when you are =]
Near future...how about NOW!
