Final Fantasy XV and Kingdom Hearts III News at E3; Square Enix: "JRPG Fans Are All Over the World"

Square Enix president Yosuke Matsuda mentioned that news about Final Fantasy XV and Kingdom Hearts III will come at E3. He also recognized that JRPG fans are all over the world, and targeting them with future games can bring good results. Finally He also admitted that the company may have been overly focused on seeking to globalize their target and getting new users, resulting in games that lost focus on their core target like Hitman: Absolution. He promised that the next Hitman will go back to its roots. (3DS, Bravely Default, Final Fantasy XV, Hitman: Absolution, Kingdom Hearts 3, PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Yosuke Matsuda)

i would much prefer a live demo at e3 but another trailer would siffice
Kurisu  +   605d ago
Preferably a trailer WITH a release date! But that's asking for too much so I'll just take the trailer lol.
thejigisup  +   605d ago
Since the game was announced in 2006, may even. I expect more than just a trailer. A game this far in development. Rather, this long in development rally should have more to show than just a trailer. A guaranteed and Realistic release date, a hands on demo, and maybe a handy from Nomura is really the only acceptable thing that can do at e3.
Nate-Dog  +   605d ago
Expecting more will lead to a high probability of disappointment. I like what I'm hearing about what they've learned at least from titles like Hitman: Absolution and the fact that they may go back to having a large focus on deep JRPGs. However, I don't see any sense in expecting anything more than a short trailer at E3. Regardless of what Matsuda or Nomura or anyone at SE have to say currently, this pattern hasn't changed and the game doesn't seem an amazing amount closer to release now than it did a year ago.

Can't wait. Not just Kingdom Heart and FF, but hearing Hitman will also get the attention it deserves is really nice to hear.

It's shocking that SE finally understand how much the stories of every FF released with the SE stamp on it suck! although they didn't say it clearly when they say that people all over the world starve for JRPGs with good stories like almost every JRPG released in Squaresoft times with few words it's like admitting that every FF released the past 12 years after the merge with Enix have terrible story & that's why FF fans all over the world r sick & tired with them, they don't have any idea what they r doing anymore & for who, they don't know what their fans want, let's hope this is going to change soon not much time left for them to reverse this bad image if that is even possible anymore.
KonsoruMasuta  +   605d ago
What? Did you really say every Final Fantasy story with a SE stamp sucks?

Some of them were terrible, I admit that, but not all of them. Type-O and Crisis Core were amazing.
LightofDarkness  +   605d ago
To be fair, VIII and X had terrible stories too. 1-3 are barely worth mentioning story wise (different times), but even V, as a successor to IV, wasn't so great. The great stories were IV, VI, VII and IX (barring the ending). XII could have had a wonderful story if they didn't stick in Vaan at the last minute (I believe either Balthier or Basch were to be the main originally).
CLOUD1983  +   605d ago
Maybe some of the very old FF didn't have so good story but at least they have good gameplay the FF from SE have bad stories & terrible battle system all of them, also agree with u that IX have good story if we exclude the very bad ending.. until then everything was fine, XII was teribad for me I speak for the story & battle system which was the worst I have ever use on any JRPG I had play in all my years as a gamer & know that I have play a lot of JRPGs.
Qrphe  +   605d ago
>to be fair

But you're not being so, specially when you mention those other
gano  +   605d ago
So can we expect a us release of type-o on vita?!
Square finally used a phoenix down.
Make this revival count.
Inception  +   605d ago
"Please be excited" - SE

Looking at SE history, than i'll doubt they announced the release date of XV. And i started to lose hope they will not bother to localize Type-0...
gano  +   605d ago
Fry never gives up!
If bender was here he'd know how to get it from them.
FullmetalRoyale  +   605d ago
He'd build his own game with black jack... and hookers...

Matter of fact, screw the game!

lol Thank you for making me think of Bender. Always makes me laugh. :)
bienio  +   605d ago
Maybe Pc version anounnce??😉 I wish!!!
KonsoruMasuta  +   605d ago
Again, we get that you want a PC version. We know. You do not have to spam the same thing in every article.

I doubt Square Enix will read your comments, no matter how many times you spam the same thing over and over again.

@ Bienio.

What you're doing is considered spamming. Also, that kind of language isn't permitted here. If only the mods were doing their jobs.

LOL, Stop being so defensive man, this is a article about SquareEnix in general and not about a specify console of your choice.

SquareEnix does have a lot of their games on PC like Final Fantasy and Hitman, Tomb Raider.
They will be releasing Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn later on this year on PC, so nienio have every right to be excited for the forthcoming announcement as what better way for SquareEnix to make more money than to release it on PC as well since all three oplatform share the x86 architecture now. It would be stupid for them to not to.
CaptainSellers  +   605d ago
*SE walk on stage*

'Final Fantasy XV and Kingdom Hearts 3 are progressing well, please bare with us as we will reveal more in the near future, please be excited!'
SirBradders  +   605d ago
P.s. Next year's e3 will hold exiting news. Roll on 2015 :-p
Muzikguy  +   605d ago
"A new trailer from a game in development for 9 years"..... /s
Gamesgbkiller  +   605d ago
FF type-0.
gamer7804  +   605d ago
Where are all the cute FF girls to liven up the story? A bit dissapointed that I've seen none in trailers just a partial frame of one next to all the guys faces, I loved vanille, fang, tifa, and rikku.
DryBoneKoopa85  +   605d ago
YES!!! This is GREAT news. Very excited for the future. I might have to go and play Final Fantasy 7 again. Maybe even run out and pick up X/X-2 HD.

My wife and I are very stoked for E3. Can't wait to see what all 3 company's bring.
barb_wire  +   605d ago
Kingdom Hearts 3, yeah, we won't be seeing that until at least 2017.
con4g23  +   605d ago
*at E3 2k14

Shows new trailer of FFXV with english voices

and bangs the release date in the end
that would be the happiest day of my life aside from finally playing the game

while KH3 may not yet get a release window but im sure with those words,it has progressed well and they will show it
Delsin22  +   605d ago
o man im so fucking Excited!!!!!!!!!! cmmoonnn E3 hurry your ass up.
SuperYakuzaFan  +   605d ago
I'm one of them Fans since 1997 Square.
DualWielding  +   605d ago
I would get my PS4 once these two come out
iSpeakTruth__  +   605d ago
"FFXV and KH3 are both releasing today. Have a nice E3." Drops mic and walks off stage. Audience is in frenzy
MegaRay  +   605d ago
Lol not possible even in dreams, a fall 2015 release would satisfy
DEATHxTHExKIDx  +   605d ago
Sounds like they are getting their sh*t together. Much excite.
PrinceOfAllSaiyans  +   605d ago
They also need to announce KH 1.5 and 2.5 remix for PS4. Why the hell is it exclusive on PS3 that makes no since at all. My PS3 broke so I can't play it. So dumb to have it only on PS3. As for KH3 we'll probably see it at PlayStation conference and hopefully we can get a release date of 2014.
Omar91  +   605d ago
Yes thank you. this needs to happen. Although I still have my ps3, I really don't wanna go back to it. A port to ps4 would make me buy 2.5 even faster then if it was on ps3 only.
FullmetalRoyale  +   605d ago
I didn't pre-order FFX-HD as I had originally planned to. I actually spend a good bit of time on my PS3 playing games such as Peace Walker HD. I just didn't like the idea of buying a NEW game for my PS3. But then I came across some information that I wasn't aware of. Sorry in advance if you already know this:

I found out that you can use the dualshock 4 controller with *your PS3. All you do is plug in your DS4 into the 'player one' slot and then turn the PS3 on manually(by use of the power button and not a controller button) and then you can use it. Simple as that.

So after finding that out I purchased FFX HD. Playing it with both my new Sony Headphones and DS4 not only feels fantastic, but it genuinely feels indistinguishable from how I play my PlayStation 4.

I figure you probably already know this. But as a fan of these games I felt I should at least share what limited knowledge I have.

Omar91  +   605d ago
Yea I did know this but thanks for the reply. Lol then problem with that is when I tried playing kh 1.5 with it, there was a slight lag when moving sora. I that game especially every sec. Counts when fighting a boss and it just didnt end up working well for me. That and the fact that the cord that comes with the ds4 is short so I would have to be super close to the tv. I just wish they port it over to ps4. I would be extremely happy.
TM333  +   605d ago
Kingdom Hearts 1.5 and 2.5 for PS4 would be sweet. I could even remote play them on Vita. I'd love a straight Vita version too. Heck, SquareEnix, give us everything we want right now! Really jonesing for that Type-0. I'd even settle for a PSN version. Just give it!
Ninjatogo  +   605d ago
Can't wait to get back into Kingdom Hearts. The last time I played was back when Kingdom Hearts 2 came out, just entering my teen years, now I'm just exiting. Still super excited!
kaixxi  +   605d ago
They dont say? •_•
I would literally lost all hope for squenix if they announce another final fantasy 13, for example ff 13 : lighting returns again. Ugghhh
kingdom18  +   605d ago
Then why do we almost never get any? More specifically on consoles? Why do so many pretend that our most beloved genre doesn't exist? It's so rare to get a JRPG and even more so with ones that are better received. At least Namco has been popping out quite a few Tales localizations. Hopefully this gen will be a little different.
RPG1201  +   605d ago
I have an itch for FFXII Ver... er; FFXV since 2006.

Scratch it already BITCH!
