News on Final Fantasy XV and Kingdom Hearts III Coming “in the Near Future”

on February 21, 2014 6:20 PM

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.

Hashimoto-san admitted that we’ve been waiting a long time, and the development team is working in earnest to meet our expectations. He also mentioned that new information will be shared “in the near future.”

He also stressed on the relationship between the two franchises and the PlayStation brand, reminiscing past succeses on the previous consoles by Sony.

All we can do is to wait and see what the new information will be, and exactly how long it’ll take for it to be shared. It’s worth mentioning that the expression used by Hashimoto-san can be translated both with “in the near future” and “in a few days.”

It’s Square Enix, after all, and their concept of time can be slightly elastic. At least Hashimoto-san did manage to deliver the message, since SCEJA President Hiroshi Kawano apparently forgot about his existence and was about to usher him off stage without letting him speak.

He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
