Better late than never has been my mantra through most of my adult life. Assignment is due? Better late than never. Have to go to work? Better late than never. Breaking a story about Square Enix’s arguably two biggest video games to date? Better late than never. Not too big a deal considering that we’ll be waiting for the games until 2018 any way. This Tuesday an investors document was leaked that stifled the hopes of keyblade and buster sword hopefuls everywhere.
Not dropping during this coming holiday season, like remasters 1.5 and 2.5 did previously, we’ll have to wait a bit longer for Sora and Cloud to grace our screens. The above image showed that the long awaited conclusion of the iconic Kingdom Hearts trilogy as well as the Final Fantasy VII remake would be coming at some point in 2018. To be honest I have personal stake in this. The main reason I ever purchased a Playstation 3 was due to a fan made image convincing me Kingdom Hearts 3 was coming out.
Though 2018 is much closer than 2050 (let’s be honest we all lost hope for a while) the information that has been released looks promising. For Kingdom Hearts, the scale of the worlds is heard to be much larger than any other entry in the series to date. With Final Fantasy VII, the remake will be so large it will come out in three separate installments.
Square Enix, if you’re reading this somewhere while you work on these games, take as long as you need. The world will be a much better place when we all get to grab our keyblades, stock up on materia and kick Sephiroth’s long sword toting ass. We’ve got more than enough remasters to keep us occupied until these games come out, whenever that may be, so you take your time.
