Development of both Final Fantasy VII Remake and and Kingdom Hearts 3 is progressing, but don't expect to see either game in stores anytime soon, game director Tetsuya Nomura has told Weekly Famitsu.

Regarding Kingdom Hearts 3, Nomura stated: "While I can’t make a sweeping statement because the development process is different from what we’ve done so far, there are still worlds untouched. Production is progressing on unannounced worlds, in a state that we cannot show them off. In terms of the state of development, there is still some way to go."

And the story is similar with Final Fantasy VII Remake.

"We're steadily progressing on production. While we are making them, I apologise that the wait will be be a bit longer for Kingdom Hearts III and Final Fantasy VII Remake. I am very sorry, but to that degree I will make a game that will meet your expectations."

Fans can at least expect to see the pair shown off at an event later this year.

"Last year, I didn’t put out much information on either title, but this year I want to show our progress at an event somewhere," revealed Nomura. "The release of the titles themselves have still have a way to go. But there are many titles releasing this year, if you can wait for any ‘surprises.'"

Assuming 2017 isn't possible, let's hope 2018 will be a big year for Square Enix RPG fans.
