Another day, another Kingdom Hearts game, and it still isn’t Kingdom Hearts III unfortunately, but not to worry, the Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue is a HD remastering of the collection of the Kingdom Hearts series, which will be released this December on the PlayStation 4.
This remastered version includes Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance that was originally released on the Nintendo 3DS, alongside a short animated feature film set before the events of the entire trilogy, Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth By Sleep – A Fragmentary Passage and last but not least the HD movie Kingdom Hearts X [chi] Back Cover that tells the story of the Foretellers.
So don’t worry, this is the final one before Kingdom Hearts III, but this trailer released for the remastered titles definitely hits right in the feels.
The game-play trailer seen above shows one of the original Keyblade wielders, Aqua, traversing fragmented bridges and battling her way against the Heartless with a teaser of another Birth By Sleep protagonist, Tera.
Square Enix Japan Studios’ Senior Marketing Manager, Kaori Takasue wrote in a recent PlayStation blog post, “the brand-new storyline will provide players with a preview of the upcoming events of the highly anticipated Kingdom Hearts III.
Square Enix also announced that Kingdom Hearts Unchained χ is coming to mobile devices in Europe and it’s going to be the first game in the series to come to Android and iOS. The title will focus on earlier parts of the series’ history also reaching into events from Kingdom Hearts III.
At the end of the new trailer, Square Enix also confirmed that new announcements regarding Kingdom Hearts III will be announced, “this winter.” So brace yourselves guys, because winter is coming and hopefully more news on KH3.
