Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue Limited Edition unboxing review

Better than never I always say. This is another unboxing posts and it will be super short. This post will be covering the limited edition version to the recent Square Enix game Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue Limited Edition. This game came out on January 24 but since I preordered online, I got this game on Saturday, January 28th. People ordered the Limited Edition receives the game in different cover box and an exclusive Disney Pin.

On the cover of the box, the cover is displayed with the game’s title along with simple patterns and symbols. The game also includes the actual hard case of the standard game with the characters on it. Unlike my Deluxe Edition to the Final Fantasy XV game, the box was cardboard or one of those plastic boxes; it has some bends and it was not a steelbook case. The pin was pretty to cool have. It was very small and it was my first pin I ever got.


The Limited Edition pretty cool to have especially if you are a Disney fanatic. If you are pin lover, this is a must have and if you want to own a second pin to the previous one if you preoredered Kingdom Hearts HD. 2.5 Remix. If you are not much pin fan, you are better off just buying the standard game. Getting this edition doesn’t come with any dlcs not even an artbook like 1.5. If you want this game, you better off with the standard.

TGIF Friday Funny 92: May your hearts be your guiding key


Thank God it’s Friday! Welcome back for another episode of TGIF Friday Funny. This is Matthew and I am back with more funny pictures. In this episode I want to dedicate this to another popular game series. The same company who did Final Fantasy XV is back with another game but it’s not Final Fantasy. Along with Final Fantasy, the popular series Kingdom Hearts is back with a new collection game and this is one is different than the previous collections. The new game is Kingdom Hearts HD II.8: Final Chapter Prologue. The game is expected to come out on January 24th for PS4 only.

This game includes he following:

Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance HD: An HD remake to the 3DS game Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance. The game will be on the PS4 under the title Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance HD. A game where the story takes place after KHII and Sora and Riku enter the Sleeping Worlds and enter the Mark of Mastery to become Keyblade Masters.

Kingdom Hearts x Back Cover: Told through cinematic cutscenes, this part of the story takes place before Kingdom Hearts begins and tells the story through the eyes of Keyblade Masters and bearers. This story shapes the future of the Kingdom Hearts story.

Kingdom Hearts 0.2: Birth by Sleep – A Fragmentary Passage: Taking place after the events of Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep, Keyblade master Aqua is still trapped in the Realm of Darkness for 10 years. Players will play as Aqua and dwell through the darkness and fight the Heartless and escape.

This is what the game collection will have. KH2.8 will serve as a prologue to the upcoming anticipated game Kingdom Hearts III. Like any other fan, I am excited to play this game. I already reserved my copy for the Limited Edition game and I bought the new soundtrack of Simple and Clean by Utada Hikaru. The soundtrack is called Simple and Clean (Ray of Hope Mix).

Last but not least, 2017 marks the 15th anniversary of the Kingdom Hearts series. Also, keep an eye on the PSN store because Square Enix will be adding Sora from Kingdom Hearts for the spinoff game World of Final Fantasy.

Now, let’s begin this post with a smile, my seekers of light and darkness!

To end this post, here are some Kingdom Heart clips to bring in hype.

That’s all for today. Go out and defeat the darkness!

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.
