TGS2016 News: Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 cover art and new release date reveal!

Today is the first day of the Tokyo Game Show 2016. To those who don’t know, the Tokyo Game Show is almost like the E3 Game Show but it features many Japanese publishers and developers like Square Enix, and Koei Tecmo. Last night, Square Enix revealed some interesting news and trailer to the new upcoming game, Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue. The Kingdom Hearts is a personal favorite of mine and this game is the second video game I’m waiting; the first would be Final Fantasy XV.

First, Square Enix released the video game trailer of Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8. Besides being able to play an HD version of Dream Drop Distance, the fans will be able to play as Aqua and learn more about her story after the events of Birth by Sleep in her solo story, Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth by Sleep – A Fragmentary Passage. This special chapter in the game will also link up to the upcoming Kingdom Hearts III.

The trailer also makes a surprising news that the game will be released NOT in December. Instead, Japan will be getting this game in January 12, 2017. North America and Europe will get the game in January 24, 2017.

Second, Square Enix also revealed the Japanese cover art of Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8. The cover art will almost be like the previous HD collections by showing the 3 games in one. Final Fantasy fans will also recognize that the cover striking resembles an image from Final Fantasy XV.

  1. I feel like we won’t get KH3 anytime soon, they keep doing the 2.5 thing ._:
    I am glad to see them have interest in Aqua tho, since she’s so great~

    • I guess they are stalling. I also think they are trying to fill in plot holes because Kingdom Hearts 3 will be the last time where we see the villain Xehanort.
      Aqua’s story has been bugging me since the end of Birth by Sleep.

      • True, but then KH has been a bit inconsistent thanks to giving more questions than answers :’D
        I’m excited to see Xehanort disappear tbh
        I actually haven’t played BbS because I got stuck in Terra’s ending and then I think I deleted my save by mistake xD;; But one day…! I still really like her ❤ One of the few girls in the series that is protagonist and a fighter/keyblade master~

      • Haha yeah I guess since there was so many questions going on, they wanted to fix the holes. I am ready for Xehanort to finally meet his end. I want to see how will the story finally end. This has been going since years.
