With the recent announcement of a playable Demo of KH2.5 at next years D23 and along with this "promise" of releasing a KH game every year (which I just now saw some people talking about on forums where can I see that Nomura promise) I would believe that means KH2.5 will be released by next Christmas at the earliest.

 

Another factor not discussed toward guessing dates of releasing games, KH 2.5 and 3, is anticipating demo's and trailers and seeing how past games and titles were taken care of.

 

Now for the remix's it is understandable how the presentation of demo's and trailers were made and how close it was/is toward actually releasing because they were just remakes. But when it comes to brand new titles for the KH series there have been prolonged and not so prolonged dates from the announcements to demo's and releasing.

I'll take the handhelds titles (BBS, 3D, etc.) for example. BBS was announced, along side 358/2 Days and Coded, back in a Tokyo Game Show 2007 with a trailer. A playable demo was finally available in Dec. 2009 a MONTH before available for release in Japan, six months then for NA/EU regions. 358/2 had their first demo in 2008 a year before releasing in 09. DDD first announced in 2010, then with a playable demo in 2011 and then releases in 2012, March for JPN, June for NA/EU. There were multiple reasons for the delay of BBS, within the game concepts/worlds/plot changed (just look at their trailers), making FF games and porting Chain of M, Jungle Book world fiasco and and one point the game was considered a PS2 title. Same things happened for DDD, if most of you remember the original trailer of DDD was NOTHING like the finished product. Don't remember watch https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wcKDo39twwc

 

With all that being said the time difference now with a KH 2.5 demo in Dec. 2014, FF scheduling and games coming out causing delay (not sure which games not fan of FF), and KH3's first 'trailer' already shown along with additional summon videos. KH3 was announced this summer, adapting and making full use of the next generation consoles graphics and hardware (comparing PS4 & Xbox 1 to PS2, PSP & 3DS) could set them back in the grand scheme of the game. Meaning a playable demo by Q3 2015 at the LEAST then boom, JPN release 2015 Q4 and 2016 Q2 for NA/EU.  :sad:  My opinion though, plus i'm new here so sorry I am late to the party.

Kingdom Hearts 2.5 will be out way before Christmas next year it's gonna come out in like March for Japan and maybe September for the rest of the world but hopefully sooner.

My apologies I saw Jump Festa 2014 and immediately thought it took place in the year 2014. Shows how much I know about events involving video games but yeah that is a lot better chances of things getting closer. I agree that then they will mirror 2.5's release like they did with 1.5. Still though what I said about KH3's release stands, maybe potentially a Q3 for Japan in 2015 and a Q1 for NA/EU.
