Square Enix sent us Fanboys into shock when the highly requested Final Fantasy VII Remake became a reality. The problem? WE WANT IT NOW. The second problem? That ain’t happening anytime soon for the FFVII Remake or Kingdom Hearts 3. Sorry, Brah.

Speaking with Famitsu, Square Enix’s Tetsuya Nomura had some disheartening answers when asked about the development status of of Kingdom Hearts 3 ..


“The production process is different than what we’ve had up until now, so I can’t just give you a general idea, but I can say that there are worlds that still remain untouched. We’ve advanced on the production of worlds that have yet to be announced, so we can’t show them for now. As far as development status goes, there’s still a ways to go.”

Then when asked about the status of Final Fantasy VII Remake..

“We’re making steady progress on its production. While we are indeed working on it, I think we’ll have you guys wait a little longer for both Kingdom Hearts III and Final Fantasy VII Remake.

I do apologize for that, but we’ll make up for it by making it into something that will meet expectations.

We didn’t share much information on either of the two titles last year, but I hope to show its progress at some event this year.

The release of these titles will still be a while. However, we have many titles releasing this year, and we hope you look forward to any ‘surprises’.”

Bummer, Brah. Nomura is right about one thing. Square Enix is delivering a smorgasbords of games this year. Kingdom Hearts 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue. NieR: Automata. Kingdom Hearts 1.5 + 2.5 Collection. Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age. While this news does suck a Marlboro’s tentacle, we should have plenty to keep our minds off their other megaton-sized games.
