Square-Enix has plans to reveal more Kingdom Hearts III news in November at D23 Expo Japan.
News of this comes from game director Testuya Nomura, who explained at an event for Square’s Rampage Land Rankers that a new update on the game’s progress will be in store later this year.

“We have some interesting things planned. There will be Kingdom Hearts III news, and various things, I think. Development on Kingdom Hearts III is going smoothly, but there will also be new announcements connected to it. As one of those new announcements, I think we should be able to announce a smartphone-specific development for the series in short order.”
Whether this means that Kingdom Hearts III will be absent from E3 again this year is unknown. Earlier this year, Goofy’s voice actor said that the next Kingdom Hearts would be coming in 2015, and Square-Enix’s response didn’t exactly deny those claims.
