Important Details About "Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8"
As the name implies, "Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue" is clearly leading up to the third "Kingdom Hearts," Gaming Bolt reported. To progress the narrative of the game to the third "Kingdom Hearts," it will focus its story on Aqua during the "A Fragmentary Passage."
The game will let the player use Aqua, whose story will be focused on in the new game to progress the narrative to the third "Kingdom Hearts."
The new instalment will have an 80 minute worth of cinematic titled "Kingdom Hearts X Back Cover," which is in reference to the previous HD Remixes of the game. The cinematic won't be a simple mash up of cut scenes, but a freshly made film for the instalment. This film will be showing the lore of the franchise on events that weren't shown on screen.
"Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue" is the direct sequel to the PSP game "Kingdom Hearts 0.2: Birth by Sleep." This means it would be best to learn a bit more about "Birth by Sleep" before playing "Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8."
