Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue
(Jan. 24 – PS4)
With the recent statement from Tetsuya Nomura – co-director of Kingdom Hearts III and director of Final Fantasy VII Remake -that both of the highly anticipated games he’s currently working on are still a while off being released, many fans of the two Square Enix franchises are left with an unknown wait ahead of them. Thankfully, those aren’t the only two games coming from the company and there are quite a few that are definitely worth your attention this year.
One of those games happens to be the bridge between Kingdom Hearts III and its predecessors, Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue. Like the other bundles released previously on the PS3, it will include three titles (2 playable, one in the form of a film). Dream Drop Distance will finally make its way to consoles in a fully remastered form. There will also be a film based on Kingdom Hearts x titled Kingdom Hearts x Back Cover. What’s interesting is that this bundle will also include a brand-new game titled Kingdom Hearts 0.2: Birth by Sleep – A Fragmentary Passage (yes, it’s a very long title). Set immediately after the events of Dream Drop Distance, players will take control of Aqua. It will reveal King Mickey’s secrets about the heroine, as well as connect the dots before giving way to the upcoming sequel.
It’s definitely something that fans of the series should have on their radar in the coming weeks.
