Between Dream Drop Distance and 358/2 Days, it’s fair to say that the Kingdom Hearts franchise has had a bit of trouble in naming some of its spin-offs, but I hope we can all agree that Kingdom Hearts 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue is this disease’s funniest symptom. 2.8 brings Dream Drop Distance, some new (probably extraneous) cinematics, and a little sequel to Birth By Sleep all together into one PlayStation 4 exclusive package in an attempt to finally finish tying up all of Kingdom Hearts‘ myriad loose ends before we all finally get the chance to play the game we’ve actually wanted to for the past decade: Kingdom Hearts III.

Well, Kingdom Hearts as a franchise turns fourteen years old today. Yup, Kingdom Hearts first released back in 2002 on March 28th in Japan, and fourteen’s the same age Sora was when he set off on his primordial journey in that first game. So, to commemorate the anniversary, a new, rather dazzling KH 2.8 screenshot’s been uploaded to the official Kingdom Hearts Twitter profile, showing off Daybreak Town in all its PlayStation 4 gorgeousness and gorgeousity.

The Daybreak Town screenshot’s in the gallery below, and the tweet’s up above. Though, I’m not sure how much good that latter will do you; it’s in Japanese, so you’ll probably want to just click through and get the translation.

Our Verdict

I write editorials here at Gamnesia and occasionally some news (though far less often than I used to). Here's some of my work, long-form game essays, if you have any interest in that sort of stuff: The Amount of Content in a Game Has Nothing to do with its Price A Game's Atmosphere is Defined by its Mechanics, Not its Aesthetic The Witcher 3's Introduction is Terribly Paced and Too Restrictive of its Players I'm looking forward to The Last Guardian (had it pre-ordered since 2010), Rime, Night in the Woods, and Vane. If I had a niche, it would probably be the somewhat higher fidelity indie games, as take up most of the spots on that list. I'm also developing a no-budget video game with a friend, and you can follow me on Twitter (@TheVioletBarry) to hear about that and anything else I feel like saying. Film, games, it's that sort of stuff.
