Shinji Hashimoto has provided some updates in regards to the two highly-anticipated games, "Final Fantasy 15" and "Kingdom Hearts 3." According to a report from Dual Shockers on June 6, the producer at Square Enix confirmed that no new details for both projects will be announced during E3 2014. During an event in Thailand, the same individual hinted that the two titles were going to be showcased at this year's Electronic Entertainment Expo. However, it appears that the plans may have been changed recently.

Shinji Hashimoto told Famitsu that the developments are progressing steadily for "Final Fantasy 15" and "Kingdom Hearts 3." However, Square Enix felt that more time is needed in order to disclose more information on the third numbered "Kingdom Hearts" installment. Furthermore, the company felt that E3 2014 may not be the right event to showcase the 15th main title from the "Final Fantasy" series.

It appears that Square Enix may be focusing on the western-developed titles at the gaming convention. The company is currently working on new installments for the "Dues Ex," "Hitman," "Sleeping Dogs" and "Tomb Raider" series. The remastered port, "Kingdom Hearts 2.5 HD Remix," has already received an E3 2014 trailer.

The wait for "Final Fantasy 15" has already been overtly long for fans. The project was first announced to be in development at E3 2006 under a different name of "Final Fantasy Versus 13." With the game not appearing at this year's event, the release may still be far off. The new logo for the software product is located near the top of this article (courtesy of the official "Final Fantasy" Facebook page).

"Final Fantasy 15" is actually being worked on by the same development team behind the mainline installments of the "Kingdom Hearts" series. Although "Kingdom Hearts 3" is being developed by another team, Square Enix reassured fans that there is enough production resources for both games. The two titles still have no launch windows despite being announced around a year ago. The two Square Enix games can be pre-ordered at Amazon in the following links: "Final Fantasy 15" and "Kingdom Hearts 3."
