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.”
As for Final Fantasy XV, Hashimoto replied;
There was a misunderstanding in the reporting of that, a number of stories were accidently mixed into one.”
“When I was asked about FFXV’s presence at E3, the answer I gave was that ‘I can’t answer yet.’ But somehow what I had said was framed in a different context when it was reported.”
Hashimoto further adds that;
“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.”
Gaming fans are shocked and disappointed at Square Enix decision to back out at the event were in the company has promised a huge “surprise” for them regarding the development of Kingdom Hearts 3 and Final Fantasy XV.
