Square Enix has published a new E3 2014 trailer that teases appearances from the likes of Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts, while the company has confirmed that Kingdom Hearts 3 and Final Fantasy 15 will be no-shows.
Famitsu has interviewed Square’s Shinji Hashimoto, who has confirmed that both Kingdom Hearts 3 and Final Fantasy 15 will miss E3 2014.
When asked if Kingdom Hearts 3 would appear at E3, Hashimoto replied, “We are are working diligently on KH3, but I think releasing new information will still take some time. We included a small part regarding the story of KH3 In the new trailer KH 2.5 prepared for E3 2014, so please check that out.”
He also responded to reports that Final Fantasy 15 would appear at E3 2014 by debunking them. “There was a misunderstanding in the reporting of that, a number of stories were accidently mixed into one,” he explained.
“When I was asked about FFXV’s presence at E3, the answer I gave was that ‘I can’t answer yet.’ But somehow what I had said was framed in a different context when it was reported.”
Hashimoto added, “First I’d like to say that development for FFXV is going well. Internally, we try to ascertain the best timing for revealing new information about FFXV to the fans. So when we were going over our promotion plans, we judged that this year’s E3 would not be the best time to exhibit information about FFXV.
“Instead we are currently planning to exhibit new information at events after E3 2014. I am extremely grateful to all the fans who excitedly anticipate FFXV, and I’m looking forward to share new information when the timing is right. I would appreciate if fans hold out until then.”
The clip features just some of the games Square is bringing to the show, as we’re guessing its keeping the bigger guns secret for now, such as Kingdom Hearts 3 and Final Fantasy 15.
It follows confirmation that Final Fantasy 14: A Realm Reborn’s 2.3 patch will appear at E3, and as you can see, we also have Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX, Theatrhythm: Curtain Call and Hitman Sniper to look forward to as well.
