Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter announced for PS4

Square Enix announced Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter for PlayStation 4 during SCEJA Press Conference 2015.

The collection will include Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance HD, Kingdom Hearts Chi: Back Cover (theater scenes), and Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth By Sleep: A Fragmentory Passage, a completely new short episode that leads into Kingdom Hearts III.

The story is too old to be commented.

Day 1. Its a bummer that 2.5 and 1.5 are not announced for PS4.

Also Aqua's short teaser seems to be on Unreal Engine 4. It would be awesome if we will be able to control Aqua/Terra/Ventus in KH3.

Or maybe they will get Birth By Sleep 2. That would be sick!

Im replaying 1.5 and 2.5 right now, cant wait for 2.8 and eventually 3!

DarkOcelet1130d ago

I am guessing that KH3 will either be released March 2017 or Q4 2016.

Hairy Chewie1129d ago

Hoping 1.5 appears on PS plus. Would be good to play through it again before 3 drops.

This is a little suspicious don't you think? The Final Chapter before KH3 and it's called 2.8

Sorry but I'm not buying it, it's pretty obvious what they are going to do. Just before KH3 comes out they'll reveal 2.9.

Kingdom Hearts 2.9 will include everything including everything from 1.5 to 2.8

People don't be fooled, you may aswell hold off and wait for the complete version, it's pretty obvious it's going to happen. If it was really the final game before KH3 then it would be 2.9

DarkOcelet1129d ago

I said a similar comment down below but here is my theory.

2.8 is for Dream Drop Distance
0.2 is for BBS continuation

2.8+0.3= 3

Kingdom Hearts 3.

-Foxtrot1129d ago

Yeah I doubt that.

It's obvious 2.9 will be the complete bunch of games.

They did a collection not long ago with both 1.5 and 2.5 bundled together so it's more likely that they are saving 2.9 for the final one.

You wouldn't call it the final one leading up to KH3, 2.8 because people would be expecting 2.9.

Spotie1129d ago

I think it's just your natural skepticism and negativity at play, Fox.

-Foxtrot1129d ago


Oh jumping on the bandwagon are you.

Well I'll favourite this article until they announce Kingdom Hearts 2.9 next year

Outside_ofthe_Box1129d ago

Yup 2.9 is coming, no way they call it 2.8 then release KH3, doesn't make sense to call it 2.8. Why not call it 2.9???

People are getting fooled here. I'll wait for 2.9 or a bundle that includes 1.5, 2.5, and 2.9, yall can go and hand over money to SE for all I care.

SE is really milking this hard.

>a completely new episode that leads into Kingdom Hearts III

Well that's not true. BBS in 2.5 had it. You unlock it after beating all the campaigns or something, which makes it even weirder that their releasing it. Or is it a continuation of that last episode? Geez.

kingdom181129d ago

It is completely new, it connects TO that last bit that you see in BBS after completing each character where Aqua is left in the Realm of Darkness. It is actually by my understanding a missing piece in the story that was rumoured to be in the original release of BBS but was eventually removed.

I wanted KH 1&2 :( oh well. At least it has 3D

Magicite1130d ago (Edited 1130d ago )

Basically to get all KH games, You will have to own PS3+PS4 and buy 1.5, 2.5, 2.8 AND 3 (although some are just a movies).
I dont see why Anyone would buy KH3 on X1 now. Its pretty much a must to play prequels.

WeAreLegion1130d ago

What a strange name and collection. Definitely getting it though.

ORyanDeee1130d ago (Edited 1130d ago )

Is this collection spin off's or something from Kh 1,2 and 3?

ninsigma1130d ago

Yep. Dream drop distance was the game on 3ds but it actually plays a big role in setting up the story for 3, so in a way it's almost a main title.I think Chi is the phone game but I'm not 100% sure on that.

kowan1129d ago

DDD is the only remastered game in the collection. KHX is a movie and BBS .2 is a entirely new current gen game.

DarkOcelet1130d ago

KH 3D is canon and happens after the events of KH Coded which is after the events of KH2.

Kingdom Hearts 0.2 tells us what happens to Aqua after Birth By Sleep events so this will be interesting to tell.

In the end all those are canon to the series and important.

ninsigma1130d ago

Bah! I was hoping for the whole lot in one collection! Would have been great because we'd have the whole series in one place! Regardless I'll be getting this :D
