Kingdom Hearts 2.8 collection has been announced

The collection will include Dream Drop Distance and two new stories never before seen.

Last week there was a tease for a new Kingdom Hearts game entitled Kingdom Hearts 2.9. While we were wrong about the title, the new game is a reality. At TGS 2015, Square Enix announced the collection: Kingdom Hearts II.8: Final Chapter Prologue.

Kingdom Hearts II.8 includes an HD remaster of Dream Drop Distance and scenes from Unchained X called Back Cover. It will tell the tale of the Foretellers and show new parts of the series’ history.

The last part of the collection is Birth by Sleep 0.2: A Fragmentary Passage. It will also feature new scenes that tell another new part of the story. The events of this one will take place after the original Birth by Sleep and will be told from the perspective of Aqua.

The game is sure to lead right into the events of Kingdom Hearts 3.

Kingdom Hearts II.8 is in development for PlayStation 4 and the official trailer for the collection comes out September 17.
