The cancellation of the highly-anticipated Scalebound comes as a blow to many action RPG fans, and unfortunately, the bad news just keeps on coming. Though it may not come as much of a surprise to long-waiting fans, it looks like both Kingdom Hearts 3 and Final Fantasy VII Remake won’t be coming out this year. In a recent interview with this week’s issue of Famitsu magazine, translated by Siliconera, the games’ director Tetsuya Nomura said:
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.
Waiting is the last thing fans want to hear, but its not like they aren’t used to it.
Nomura went on to say he hopes to be able to show something at some point this year, which does not sound very promising. He also indicated that fans might see something from Kingdom Hearts at Disney’s D23 event in July. Fans will also be able to whet their appetite with the release of Kingdom Hearts 2.8 HD coming to PS4 sometime this month.
Its no real surprise that fans have to keep waiting for Kingdom Hearts, but some rumors did place Final Fantasy VII Remake to be released at least as soon as this year for PS4.
Though Nomura did admit that Kingdom Hearts III and Final Fantasy VII Remake may not be coming this year, he did mention that Square Enix has many other titles coming this year, and teased that fans should look forward to any “surprises.” Here’s hoping that neither of these games get placed on a Final Fantasy XV development timeline.
