Square Enix will have its hands full next year with profits as they will be releasing two long-awaited games with Final Fantasy 15 and Kingdom Hearts 3. For now, they have their hands full prepared for the launch, and this is what is known about Final Fantasy 15 and Kingdom Hearts 3 Release Date, News, and Rumors of the Star Wars/Marvel Comics Connection.
Final Fantasy 15
Final Fantasy 15 is planning on having some very fast and highly-detailed way for simulating cloth and hair, which will create incredibly realistic physics, according to Gaming Bolt. There have also been reports on the Latino Post that the pre-beta version is finished, which is the preliminary step to the beta version. The result should be a better gameplay experience overall.
Final Fantasy 15 plans on having a very open world for some serious exploring, but will also have a lot of action as well with plans for an advanced party battle system. There is also news that Moogles will be added to the game, according to the International Business Times. These are adorable creatures that have appeared in past versions of Final Fantasy games, and their inclusion is the result of a Twitter poll. The Moogles will apparently be in the background, and not relevant to the gameplay.
Kingdom Hearts 3
If you are familiar with Kingdom Hearts, and then you know that it often crosses over into the worlds of Disney, not to mention Final Fantasy. Previous incarnations of Kingdom Hearts have crossed into Disney worlds, and some of the main characters include the iconic Disney characters of Mickey, Donald, and Goofy. The word of Big Hero 6 is definitely on the agenda with Hiro and Baymax helping the player out, but there have been rumors of some other Disney worlds being involved like Frozen, The Jungle Book, Wreck-it-Ralph and Toy Story
One of the biggest rumors is that the worlds of Marvel Super Heroes along with Star Wars, which are both now Disney intellectual property, are going to get involved. According to Realty Today, Square Enix has designed the involvement of these worlds, but some say that certain elements could get involved, like the lightsaber or Captain America's Shield.
Designer and Director Tetsuya Nomura stated that Kingdom Hearts 3 will have a famous character returning, and believes that the fans are already aware of its identity already. As for other rumors, there will be other keyblade users involved in the story like Kairi, Ven, Riku, Terra, Roxas, Aqua, Namie, and Lea.
If those names don't sound familiar to you, then you are not alone. As stated before, Kingdom Hearts is one of those very complicated video games with a storyline that has lasted for years, and it also has a lot of sequels, prequels, and interactions with decimal points in their titles. Final Fantasy also has a rich gaming history that spans for decades, as well as a strongly developed characters and mythology. Look for Kingdom Hearts 3 and Final Fantasy 15 to be released sometime in 2016, but we still don't have any more approximate release date.
