Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8: Final Chapter Prologue delayed to January 24, 2017

Square Enix has announced that Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8: Final Chapter Prologue won’t be released in 2016 as originally planned. Today, the publisher confirmed that the PS4 game, which is a remake of 2012’s Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance, on January 24, 2017.

While this two-month delay is disappointing, Square Enix also released a new trailer for Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 today. The Tokyo Game Show 2016 trailer also features footage from the included companion chapters, Kingdom Hearts X Back Cover and Kingdom Hearts 0.2: Birth by Sleep – A Fragmentary Passage

[The trailer] includes never-before-seen scenes depicting a mysterious meeting of the “Foretellers,” the five Keyblade Masters from the Kingdom Hearts origins movie included in the compilation as Kingdom Hearts X Back Cover. The trailer also features HD remastered gameplay of Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance HD and new battles scenes from Aqua’s adventures in Kingdom Hearts 0.2: Birth by Sleep – A Fragmentary Passage.

Through the trailer, fans can listen to the newly remixed version of “Simple and Clean” by popular singer Utada Hikaru.

Meanwhile, Kingdom Hearts III remains as mysterious as ever. Hopefully, we’ll hear more about it during this week’s Tokyo Game Show.
