Ouch, Kingdom Hearts III and Final Fantasy VII remake to launch 'in the next three years or so'


Due by 2020

Square Enix CEO Yosuke Matsuda has some bad news for people expecting a surprise 2017 first chapter release of Final Fantasy VII Remake -- a slide during a fiscal year presentation has revealed that it's expected "within the next three years or so." Marvel also mentions its Marvel IP project (which I totally forgot they had) as something on the horizon.

While I could probably wait 20 more years for Kingdom Hearts III (all of the algebraic spinoffs and sequels are a pretty good way to pass the time), I'm extremely anxious to see how Final Fantasy VII plays out. People are already divided over the episodic treatment, and if they take a year or more to drop each episode, that would be a pretty crazy sight to behold.

It's also perhaps the most brazen use of nostalgia yet, and Capcom has been giving Square a run for its money. Exciting times! What's old is new again.
