Watch as it doesn't get shown.

It most likely won't. Again, late 2015 is the best bet.

November 2015: D23. KH3 stuff is gonna be shown there. And yet people forgot about it because HEY IT MIGHT BE AT E3 BECAUSE OF HASHTAGS AND A LOGO WOW THEY'RE TOTALLY TEASING SOMETHING HOLY SHIT GUYS.

KH3 won't be shown today; it will most likely be shown tomorrow at Square Enix's press conference at 10am. It MIGHT be teased at sonys conference but thats a stretch. It will be interesting to see what sony shows since Microsofts conference had no JRPG announcements at all

I wasn't expecting for KH3 at E3 because they said before they have a big announcement at D23.

I have no doubt that Square will show us some kind of KH news, but very little of it, if any of it, will be about KHIII. More than likely, they'll show off Unchained X and that's about it.

Im watching either way.

It would be a better choice to both show Unchained X and complete the KH HD Remixes with a Dream Drop Distance HD Final Remix.

I think KH3 will have small presence in the least.  Possibly showing the secret movie from the 2.5 event?  I am not getting my hopes up for it, as I believe D23 will be the big event for it.  I think maybe Unchained will get a release window (or date) and maybe a DDD HD, but they may also save that for a later event.  KH isn't even really my main focus this year, all my hype is put behind Bravely Second, Star Ocean 5, and Toriyama's new title (which could be this FF VII remake).  And of course I will be excited for Nintendo since I normally enjoy most of what they show every year.  Just to throw it in there, I will forever be praying and wishing for a Legend of Dragoon remake or sequel.

"I'm pleased to announce this long-awaited game of friendship, adventure and caring! I'm pleased to announce..."

 

It's The Last Guardian again. AGAIN. This game should have come out years ago ffs. 

 

They did show part of the KHIII trailer briefly, but I'm actually inclined to believe it's possible they're going to release DDD HD. Probably not, but they did show it so it's been acknowledged. 

yeah, anyone else feel trolled by the way he described last guardian?

Well, even though Sony didn't show Kingdom Hearts III, we can still hope that tomorrow will bring us something!  There has to be something!!!  I know that we're getting KHIII news at D23, but I want to believe that the smallest of teasers, anything at all regarding KHIII, will be shown tomorrow!  Darn it all, we need to see something!!!!! D:

I did. It sounded like they were gonna show KH, describing what it was, and then they just show us some kid running around on a death hazard with his giant dog bird thing.

There can't be any doubts now. Since the FF7 remake announcement, possibly the biggest gaming news in ages, we should expect Square Enix to show off alot of new info relating to KH3 tomorrow. I expect a gameplay trailer that is 2 minutes long and a story trailer that is 3 minutes long along with more details on development time/release dates. I am still in shock over the FF7 remake announcement; i didn't think Square Enix had the balls to do it since they were riding on FFXV beating FF7 in terms of sales but im glad they wised up and realized how much of a money maker FF7 remake will be. Square Enix is coming back people!

If anything, this means it'll only take longer, since Nomura's trying to be the busiest man in existence. >.>

 

We're not seeing KH3 at E3. Period.

^ In your dreams. xD We'll get all that good stuff at D23.

Since when the hell did making games become the most impossible task that takes 50+ years to master?

Jesus, I understand people not expecting KH3 this year but like this is just extreme. 

Nomura doesnt do much, while his role is an important one hes not doing the big dirty work, as far as Im concerned KH3 is hardly effected by Nomura's busy schedule.

Im not trying to convince you that its coming this year, Im not sure myself, but lighten up, E3 is full of surprises, dont be so sure that its not coming. KH3 has been in the works for a good while, the possibility is there.

When Square started making KH3. Obviously. >.>

 

I'm wondering when people are going to get it into their heads that it's not going to be appearing ANY TIME SOON. Or within the next year.

 

It may be at D23 with some minor information. But E3? I don't think so.

If they revealed an FF7 remake at E3, which has been demanded since the tech demo back on PS3, then i think its safe to say they will be showing off KH3 tomorrow since the FF7 remake is bigger than KH3

....Am I supposed to take that seriously?

We shall see then.

Your choice. Either way, it rings true in some fashion.

 

It's going to be a while so we need to be patient.

I can deal with patience, but Im just telling you to lighten up a little, dont be so 100% sure, you might get suprised.

Gotta love dem surprises ;)

 

On a another note, was anybody expecting KH3 at ES 2013? Square could surprise us yet
