Square Enix reveals Jump Festa 2018 lineup; Kingdom Hearts III and Final Fantasy VII Remake not listed

Square Enix has recently announced their game lineup for Jump Festa 2018. Some of the games that are included are Dragon Quest Builders, Secret of Mana Remake, and Dissidia Final Fantasy NT.

Kingdom Hearts III and the Final Fantasy VII Remake were not included on this list. This will be the second straight year that Kingdom Hearts III has been not included on the game lineup.

It is not known whether the lineup will be subject to change.

Last year at Jump Festa 2017, Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue and Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 ReMIX were on display along with a new trailer for the latter.

Jump Festa '18 runs from December 15th to December 17th.

Stay tuned for any updates!

That blows, but it also doesn't surprise me since we are getting KH3 in February at D23 Japan.

Thanks for showing this to us and letting us know about this development, Leamax!

 

Hmm, so KHIII isn't listed to appear in Jump Festa, eh? Well, maybe we'll get surprised, but even if it turns out that we don't get anything, like KingdomHearts3 said, we have D23 in February to look forward to! So either way, I won't be disappointed! :)

Yeah, like the other guys said. They could be showing us something huge in February, which is why they possibly aren’t showing anything of KHIII next month. It makes sense, hype-building wise.

Guess they plan on making us wait till February for more kingdom hearts 3 news. It's no big deal though  

Either it’s a surprise or we won’t get anything until 2018. If it’s the latter, then I’m disappointed that we’ll have to wait until next year.

Everyone should keep expectations low low low low low low low low low low low low. That being said...

...this isn't necessarily the end. In recent years, the games Square announces for Jump Festa tend the to be the ones that have playable demos at the event. I wouldn't expect either KH3 or FF7R to have a demo, so I wouldn't expect Square to announce them with everything else.

Also, back at Jump Festa 2016 (year 2015), KH3 wasn't in Square's lineup either, but the official KH twitter announced a trailer for it a few days before Jump Festa. I believe it was the trailer where we first saw the Buzz Lightyear Attraction Flow.

Again, don't expect anything until February at this point, but PERSONALLY I'm not counting either FF7R or KH3 out for Jump Festa (I just can't believe we'd go through FF's 30th anniversary and FF7's 20th anniversary without seeing ANYTHING, switching teams be damned).

EDIT: Yeah, Jump Festa 2016 ran from Dec. 19th - 20th 2015. Here was Square's OFFICIAL lineup:

And on the official English KH Twitter, they posted this Dec 17th 2015: "The holidays are coming so we come bearing the gift of a trailer tomorrow! Thanks for your support! #kingdomhearts"

I assume in february we will have a Huge Event were they will go Into much greater detail it would make no sense to reveal bits and pieces only to have nothing but the Release date 

If there isn't a new KH3 trailer in December with events like PSX Event and Jump Festa going, and the game will indeed be released in 2018, then the marketing team behind KH3 is officially a joke.

It's a bit disappointing but better than rousing unnecessary expectations. This way, no one will make a fuss if there's nothing particularly outstanding but it will be a pleasant surprise if there's something after all.

However, I wouldn't completely rule out the possibility yet either. It's not the first time they surprised us with something new without announcing it beforehand. There were trailers, an intro, screenshots or interviews without prior knowledge.

I still won't have any expectations for Jump Festa though because there's no confirmation for news. Still, it wouldn't come as a surprise if they decided to reveal something one way or another.

D23 better be good then...

Maybe they're saving for a surprise like with 2016, as James Lutz said.

Well let's Hope D23 brings us something good maybe a Bigger Trailer.

Yeah, that's true! We'll have to see what happens in the following weeks! :D

I’m at least hoping we might see some new merchandise displayed at least

Yeah, odds are that'll be the most likely thing we'll see, such as Play Arts, Bring Arts, etc. 

It's all good, I'm sure we'll see big things in February at D23.

If they jump this event it's because they're preparing a surprise, i know it! I think it will be a story trailer with the release date and then nothing 'till it releases :v

That is what we all hope, my friend! That is what we all hope!

You know, I'd definitely be down for this! I'm confident we'll get something big when February rolls around! Heck, maybe at Jump Festa there'll be a trailer revealing that a trailer will be unveiled at February's D23, kind of like how there was an Avengers: Infinity War tease on Youtube, and then the next day, the trailer itself debuted! :D

At this point no one really knows. Specially with the big guys on SE commanding even Nomura to keep shut about major titles like KH. Oh well! We'll get it when we get it.

Yep! Honestly, with the game already set to come out next year, I'm not all that worried in terms of advertising for the game, because I know that the heavy advertising will come around very soon! :3

I actually believe it won't come. Which I see as a good thing since it will help us appreciate the game even more. If there's something I like about some movie trailers is how they hook you without telling you much and they repeat it over and over and over again so that when you finally watch that film everything feels brand new. If you notice same thing has been happening with KHIII. They have been showing us Olympus for YEARS and even though it looks cool and stuff they haven't moved on too much from there... the reason? They are reserving everything for the game! Sure we will know about the worlds and will see some stuff about them like the Toy Story world but being the final entry (at least on this Dark Seeker saga) they will keep shut for a while so it makes a major hit when we get the game. So my theory is: We will get the release date and final story trailer in D23 and then we will see glimpses or something little every once in a while 'till the game releases.

You know what? You make an excellent point! If we've been waiting this long for Kingdom Hearts III, we can wait a couple of more months, and honestly, I'll be happy with whatever we're given, regardless if it's big or small info! I am counting on the official release day and month, mind you, and we'll probably get that at D23! God, the wait is almost over, I can almost see the game in my hands! :')

It feels awesomely good right?

It feels awesomely good right?

 

Yesss, especially since I'm close to completing my runthrough of the Xehanort Saga! This whole year I've been playing through the entire series, and playing it in chronological order! It's truly something of beauty! I'm just about to finish DDD and then get to 0.2, and then, the wait for Kingdom Hearts III! Gahhh, I'm so psyched! :D
