Square Enix had a ton of information to share about the Kingdom Hearts series today, including new screenshots for Kingdom Hearts III and the full version of Kingdom Hearts 2.8’s opening. We previously saw a shortened version of the opening, when a new trailer released back at Tokyo Game Show. It should also be noted that this opening is technically for Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth By Sleep – A Fragmentary Passage-, which is the new game featured in 2.8.
The three-minute CG opening starts with a traditional shot of a serene ocean, showing Sora, Riku, and Kairi as children on the beach. The focus then shifts to Aqua, one of the protagonists from Birth By Sleep, as she journeys and struggles to find her friends Ventus and Terra. The opening is filled with some quick shots of a Disney looking castle, the Organization XIII thrones, Aqua battling Ventus and Terra, and of course King Mickey coming in to save the day. The entire thing is set to a remix of Simple and Clean called the “Ray of Hope Mix.” Take a look at it down below.
Kingdom Hearts 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue will release on January 24, 2017 for PlayStation 4. Square Enix also announced today that Kingdom Hearts 1.5 and 2.5 Remix will both be hitting the PS4 next March.
