Final Fantasy XV, Kingdom Hearts III to Skip E3

If you were hoping to learn more about two of Square's biggest upcoming titles next week, you're in for some disappointment, as the publisher has confirmed that neither Final Fantasy XV nor Kingdom Hearts III will have a major presence at E3 2014.

"We are are working diligently on KH3," Square's Shinji Hashimoto told Famitsu, "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."

With regard to Final Fantasy XV, it doesn't sound like there will be any new major details either, as Hashimoto went on to add:

Well, 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.

Bummer, I know. Here's to hoping this year's Tokyo Game Show is chock-full of Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts-related goodness.
