Square Enix had two surprise announcements at E3 – Kingdom Hearts III and Final Fantasy XV. Both games are being overseen by Square Enix superstar Tetsuya Nomura, and he was at E3 earlier this month to talk about the titles.
Fans of both franchises will be pleased to know that Nomura sat down with Square Enix North America for an hour long interview about Kingdom Hearts III, Final Fantasy XV and Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD Remix. He touches upon everything from the development of the original Kingdom Hearts to what he’s planning to do with the latest title in the franchise. As for Final Fantasy XV, he addresses the long and troubled development of the title from back when it was known as Final Fantasy Versus XIII. It’s a fascinating and frank look into the mind of a man who usually prefers to tease fans with cryptic answers instead of straight answers.
Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD Remix will be out on September 10 exclusively for the PS3. Kingdom Hearts III and Final Fantasy XV will be available for both the Xbox One and PS4 when they’re ready.
