Kingdom Hearts 3 is still likely at least a year or more away, so in the meantime we have reason to be very excited for the upcoming Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue. While E3 isn’t until next week, Square Enix decided to go ahead and release their E3 trailer for Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 this morning and with it came some big news.
The new E3 trailer for Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 showed off a good bit of footage of all that is included in three different parts of the game which all look gorgeous on the PS4, but the bigger news we’ve been waiting for was a release window confirmation.
According to this new trailer, Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 will be releasing worldwide in December 2016. This is yet another big release that Square Enix is releasing worldwide around the same time, so hopefully we’ll see the same with the eventual Kingdom Hearts 3.
Unlike the previous HD compilations, Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 is special because while we do get an HD remaster of the 3DS title Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance, we also get two parts that are brand new.
The game also includes Kingdom Hearts 0.2: Birth By Sleep – A Fragmentary Passage, a playable section that followed up on Birth By Sleep within the engine for the upcoming Kingdom Hearts 3, essentially giving us a demo of what we can expect in 3. On top of that, we also get the cinematic Kingdom Hearts X Back Cover that provides a narrative for the browser and now mobile based Kingdom Hearts X.
Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 will release exclusively for PlayStation 4 this December and make sure to check out the brand new trailer for yourself below.
