Following rumors of a “Kingdom Hearts 2.9,” Square Enix today took to the stage at Sony’s pre-Tokyo Game Show press conference to show just how stupid they can make their titles. Kingdom Hearts HD II.8 Final Chapter Prologue (let’s just call it Kingdom Hearts 2.8) is a new release designed to lead the way into Kingdom Hearts III, the final part of the main series’ storyline. The biggest feature of this new collection is Kingdom Hearts 3D Dream Drop Distance HD. This is an HD remaster of 2012’s Nintendo 3DS exclusive sequel to Kingdom Hearts II. The game lets players take control of Sora and Riku as they explore dream worlds including locations based on The Hunchback of Notre Dame, and Tron Legacy. It also features cameo appearances from Square Enix’s cult classic RPG The World Ends With You.
Kingdom Hearts x Back Cover (these names aren’t going to get any more sensible) appears to be a new story related to mobile game Kingdom Hearts Unchained x [chi]. It can be assumed it will be a cutscene-based movie that elaborates on some of the relevant lore featured in that spinoff. Finally, there’s Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth By Sleep -A fragmentary passage- which seems to be a remake of the secret post-game scenario featured in Birth By Sleep. It follows Aqua’s journey in the Realm of Darkness.
Kingdom Hearts 2.8 will release for the PlayStation 4 in 2016.
