We can't stop talking about #FinalFantasyXV, mostly because we can't stop playing it—at least I can't—and among our boy band of a party, there's one character who's insanely divisive.

Prompto walks a fine line between comic relief and being so infuriating that I want to batter him to death with Ignis' cooking equipment, often some variation of the two at the same time. That said, he's probably the biggest nerd in the group, often cheekily breaking the fourth wall, making wise cracks about #VideoGames and most notably a nod toward #KingdomHearts3.


Final Fantasy XV Has A Kingdom Hearts 3 Easter Egg

This isn't the first time Prompto makes a joke about gaming culture. He occasionally shouts out a one-liner about gaining XP or levelling up, throwing the fourth wall out the TV screen with it—the best kind of easter egg, really.

Though we have to admit, this sly wink towards the Keyblade from Kingdom Hearts has to be one of our favourites thus far. Square Enix love including easter eggs referencing their other products! But now, with Final Fantasy XV out the door and 2017 on the horizon, it should be Kingdom Hearts 3's time to shine... right?


Is Kingdom Hearts 3 The Next Big Release For Square Enix?

If you count all the remix's, Kingdom Hearts 3 will be the 16th in the franchise.

It's been 10 years since the curtain closed on Kingdom Hearts 2 with a post-credit sequence teasing a sequel. To put that into context, 2006 was the year Final Fantasy XV—back then Versus XIII—was announced.

In that time there have been 10 spinoffs/compilations, with the upcoming Kingdom Hearts 2.8 designed to set up the third instalment of the franchise.

After nearly a decade, Kingdom Hearts fans are foaming at the mouth and glad Final Fantasy XV is finally behind them. Time to focus on Sora, Donald and Goofy!

Others are less impressed...

Some fans have surrendered to the inevitable and already tempered their expectations.


If you want to know more about Kingdom Hearts 3 then you can check out everything we know, but for now we're going to head back into Eos and see what game Prompto jokes about next.
