Final Fantasy XV And Kingdom Hearts 3 Will Not Have Big Presence at E3 2014

20140606-103034-37834730.jpg

Despite the teaser we got last night for Kingdom Hearts 3 in the trailer for Kingdom Hearts 2.5 Remix and the almost decade long wait for Final Fantasy XV, it appears we won’t be seeing much of the two at E3 this year. According to Square Enix exec Shinji Hashimoto, in an interview with Famitsu, he says very little will be shown at this year’s show and they are waiting for the right moment to show off some new stuff on either game.

From the sound of things, the company is waiting until TGS to show off the games. Seems like a bold move but then again Kingdom Hearts has always had a big presence there. As for Final Fantasy XV who know when they will be finished with that game. I have given up trying to guess but one has to wonder if it’s broken any records for longest developed game.

According to Gematsu, a scan in Jump magazine reveals a “new episode” for the HD remake of Final Fantasy X and X2. The website states:

It will be a 30-minute drama at the end credits of the game, featuring new cast and character voices.

For now that is all that is known, the game arrives sometime this fall for the PS3 and PS Vita.

Final Fantasy XV Details and Character Info

4995FFXV_Online-610x861

Square Enix has revealed details on the re-dubbed Final Fantasy XV. It’s funny how changing the name of the game and putting it on next gen system somehow completely rejuvenates interest in this series. Nevertheless, the concept of Final Fantasy XV has me looking forward to it more than any of the Final Fantasy games on the PS3 or Xbox 360. Whether the game is good or not remains to be seen until the game comes out next year.  Most of the information involves the plot and descriptions of the characters who will accompany Prince Noctis on his journey. Here are the synopsis from Square Enix:

The only crystal left to the world lies in the Kingdom of Lucis. Upon striking a peace with the garrison state of Niflheim, Lucis rejoices in having at last brought the cold war to a close. Their celebrations, however, are premature. Under the guise of amity, Niflheim dispels the anti-armament runewall and launches a full-scale invasion of the kingdom. The peaceful lives Crown Prince Noctis and his entourage once knew are consumed by the flames of war as they struggle to mount a resistance.

Noctis Lucis Caelum: A childhood affliction endowed Noctis, heir apparent to the throne of Lucis, with the mystical power to see a heavenly light, through which he could sense others’ deaths. Noctis rejects rigid royal conventions and acts as somewhat of a renegade, much to the dismay of those who tend to him. Yet while “Noct” may act brash at times, he does so in defense of those loyal to him.

Gladiolus Amicitia: As lord of the noble House Amicitia, Gladiolus continues a line sworn to protect the crown. “Gladio” shares a friendship with Noctis that transcends birth and title, and his loyalty to his liege is born not of duty, but of brotherhood.

Ignis Scientia: Ever the unwavering voice of reason, Ignis was weaned on shrewd logic and a classical education from boyhood so that he might one day counsel the would-be king, Noctis. He applies the deep mutual understanding and trust they have built over time to help smooth over Noctis’s brusqueness with others.

Prompto Argentum: The puckish playboy Prompto befriended Noctis in his school days. He wears a chip on his shoulder as an outsider to the royal circle, but remains eager to do all he can for the cause.

Cor Leonis: A living legend of Lucian lore, Lord Commander Cor Leonis’s devotion to the art of war is surpassed only by that to his king. Little love is lost between the ill-starred stalwart and Noctis’s retinue, yet honor binds him to keep watch over the group all the same.

Final Fantasy XV is coming to the PS4 and Xbox One sometime in 2014.

SQUARE ENIX, INC. KINGDOM HEARTS

Siliconera has the inside scoop on the plot of Kingdom Hearts 3. However convoluted the story seems, you can always guarantee going on a amazing adventure through several Disney themed worlds.

Apparently Sora, Donald and Goofy are out to find the Seven Guardians of Light in order to stop main villain Xehanort from starting a war against the light. Meanwhile, Riku and King Mickey search for the original key blade wielders from Birth by Sleep. All I want to know is what worlds are coming Kingdom Hearts 3. Any ideas?

IGN has a live demo of the first-person stealth reboot to Thief.  Look interesting, I like the idea of playing with the environment and carefully planning out attacks in order to prevent yourself from getting caught. Besides, there are not many first person games that don’t involve just running and gunning. I kind of excited about this one, can’t wait to see more.

New Final Fantasy XV Gameplay Trailer

Perhaps the most drastically different entry within the main series, Final Fantasy XV (formally Final Fantasy Versus XIII) looks better than expected. Like Kingdom Hearts, Final Fantasy XV is an Action RPG rather than the series’ normally Turn Based outings. Looking at the action heavy game play, this could turn out to be the most accessible Final Fantasy to date. No word if Final Fantasy XV still connects to Final Fantasy XIII within the Story, but the change might benefit Square Enix in the end.

Final Fantasy XV is coming to the Playstation 4 and the Xbox One.
