Square-Enix took to the stage at Sony’s TGS 2015 press conference not to show Kingdom Hearts 3, but to reveal Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8: Final Chapter Prologue. This new remastered package will contain three titles Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance, Kingdom Hearts x Back Cover and Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth By Sleep: A Fragmentary Passage.

Dream Drop Distance was one of the games left out of the previous two collections put out by Square-Enix and fans have been wondering if it would be getting the remastered treatment. To Square’s credit though unlike the previous DS games this one looks to be playable and not just remastered cutscenes like in the previous two collections. And for Birth By Sleep 0.2 it appears to be new content that will be from the perspective of Aqua that will lead into Kingdom Hearts 3. While Back Cover will be remastered cutscenes from the recent Kingdom Hearts Unchained.

Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8: Final Chapter Prologue will release for the PlayStation 4 sometime in 2016.

    Looking forward to it but i was hoping for the last 2 games would come to ps4. I also thought the name had more meaning than i thought but i dont think so (and your assessment was just like mine.)
