I can hear people turning their heads at the sheer mention of Kingdom Hearts. No, its not the sequel we’ve been waiting for since watching the credits roll after the excellent Kingdom Hearts 2. However, Kingdom Hearts 2.8 is bringing one of the better handheld titles, Dream Drop Distance originally on the 3DS, to the PS4. Oh, and there is a mini episode as well that centers around Aqua and her being trapped in the world of darkness that starts to bridge the distance between the second and third games.
I literally have chills.
This series is well-loved for a good reason. The story is simple in its themes, but complex enough for those who want to dig deeper and experience everything the world of Kingdom Hearts has to offer. Aqua’s episode will offer a look at how the anticipated Kingdom Hearts 3‘s combat will function, as well as spark the events that lead into the game. Also included in the package is Kindom Hearts Chi Back Cover, a full cinematic movie that focuses on the dapper foretellers and will add probably another twenty characters or so to keep track of. Of course the main course of the meal is the remaster of Dream Drop Distance, which will feature HD graphics.
Kingdom Hearts 2.8 will be heading to PS4 this December. Once it releases, we are that much closer to Kingdom Hearts 3. Patience, my friends. Patience.
