With the recent announcement of Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue, a collection of games with possibly the worst name of all time, talk of release dates and additional info keeps coming up.
While we have no release date, Square Enix has sent out an e-mail whereby you can pre-order Kingdom Hearts 2.8 on the PS4. Whether this is an exclusive offer or only timed is yet to be seen. If I had to wager, I’d say we’ll be able to get it through traditional retailers soon enough.
Rumours of it being on the PS4 circulated, but this is our first confirmation of available platforms. Follow this link to reserve your copy if you so desire. And in case you’re wondering what is even included in this bizarre bundle, here are some details from the website.
KINGDOM HEARTS HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue is a compilation that brings the popular KINGDOM HEARTS [Dream Drop Distance] to the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system platform remastered in high definition.
Originally released in 2012, KINGDOM HEARTS [Dream Drop Distance] HD is a full-HD remastered version of KINGDOM HEARTS 3D [Dream Drop Distance]. Series protagonists Sora and Riku take on the Mark of Mastery exam in preparation for coming threats. The signature action of the KINGDOM HEARTS series has evolved, allowing players to experience faster-paced battles and exploration at a blistering pace.
Additionally you will receive KINGDOM HEARTS 0.2 Birth by Sleep: A Fragmentary Passage, a new chapter where you travel the realm of darkness as Aqua, and KINGDOM HEARTS χ[chi] Back Cover, a movie connected to the upcoming mobile game.
It seems like endlessly re-releasing old games and milking the franchise is much more important than finally ending the Xehanort saga with Kingdom Hearts 3. I’d be lying if I said I weren’t going to buy this though.
