Yesterday we reported that Square Enix would release a new trailer for Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue. Now that the trailer is out, we have tons of new gameplay footage, details, and even a worldwide release date of December 2016!

The trailer starts by showing new footage of the HD remaster of Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance. The gameplay and story itself seems to be unchanged, but the new resolution and updated textures have brought new life to this once 3DS-exclusive title.

Next, the trailer showed off more of Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth by Sleep: A Fragmentary Passage. This is the first gameplay we’ve ever seen for this part of Kingdom Hearts 2.8 and the main character, Aqua, seems just as acrobatic as Sora does in the Kingdom Hearts III trailers. During this portion of the trailer, we hear Aqua talking a bit about her journey through the Realm of Darkness. She even sees what’s more than likely an illusion of her friend Terra.

In the last third, the trailer revealed more of Kingdom Hearts Χ: Back Cover, which focuses on the fights between the foretellers in Kingdom Hearts: Unchained X. Many tense scenes were shown in which the foretellers were arguing among themselves. Toward the end of the trailer, we even see some physically fighting each other with keyblades.

You can check out the exciting new trailer above! Kingdom Hearts 2.8 HD Final Chapter Prologue releases in December 2016 exclusively for the PlayStation 4.

Our Verdict

Writing is half of my life. Video games make up the other half. I decided to put these two hobbies together and join Gamnesia back in 2015. I spend most of my time working at a retail store and paying off my student debt. When I'm not getting stressed about the thousands of dollars I owe my loan providers, I play tons of video games (which just puts me into more debt). I'm also currently writing a novel in what little spare time I have. It's a story I've been wanting to write for a while, but I don't want to talk about it until I have most of it completed. Any Gamnesia-related inquiries may be sent to [email protected] Feel free to follow my personal Twitter if you want (@Pindlo). I mostly just retweet things.
