A new trailer has been posted by the Square Enix Youtube channel, depicting what appears to be from our best efforts in translation, the final trailer to be shown for Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue.
Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue is a HD remastered collection of the critically-acclaimed Kingdom Hearts series, set to release exclusively on PS4. The collection includes a high-definition remaster of Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance, Kingdom Hearts Back Cover (Kingdom Hearts based cinematic, based on events not shown in original game) and Kingdom Hearts 0.2: Birth by Sleep – A Fragmentary Passage, a brand new game taking place of the events of Birth by Sleep from Aqua’s perspective.
The intention of the collection was to allow players to experience features that would eventually make their way into the highly anticipated (not to mention elusive) Kingdom Hearts 3, which could be construed as confusing, given the collection is a PlayStation 4 exclusive whilst KH3 will also release on Xbox One.
As far as naming the collection, Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance is considered to be 2.6 in the series, following the events of HD 2.5 Remix. Birth by Sleep is considered to be 0.1, and A Fragmentary Passage 0.2. Add these together, and you get 2.8, as well as a sore head figuring out how these numbers came up in the first place. A trailer for the collection was revealed via a trailer released back in September 2016 at the Tokyo Game Show.
Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue will release on PlayStation 4 on January 12th, 2017 in Japan, followed by a worldwide release on January 24th.
