January 27 will mark Kingdom Hearts 2.8 on Playstation 4. Kingdom Hearts 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue HD is a mouthful, but it has a ton of content. It will contain the new .02: Birth by Sleep, Dream Drop Distance and X Cover. But while this is pretty fantastic news for PS4 owners, or people looking to grab one, there’s another release coming early next year in addition to Kingdom Hearts 3, which lets face it, almost everyone is excited for. The slated arrival for Kingdom Hearts 1.5+2.5 Collection is March of next year. So all of the HD Remakes that contain Final Mix plus other content/games that come with it. So the great thing for Kingdom Hearts fans, is that the entire franchise is going to be on Playstation 4! Sorry Xbox One users. I think this is a terrific idea, and there are a lot of younger fans coming into the gaming community who are seeing clips for KH3, but never got to really experience 1 or 2 in their prime. There are also a ton of people who did not get to experience the Final Mix of either game which is the phenomenal International Editions of the game. Int. Editions tend to have extra content and harder bosses, stuff like that. One of the few times ever we got a harder game was Final Fantasy VII, since Emerald and Ruby WEAPON were added for us, and not in the Japanese original release of the game. Now that’s interesting. Usually we get something dumbed down, or they get a cool “extra” version. Now, this means yes, you’ll have to buy the games again, but I’d rather not talk about how many versions/copies of Final Fantasy X I own. So, I’m in no position to snicker. But, it’s a really big deal for people who are fans of the series!
Is there a franchise you’d love to see on the newer consoles or on PC? Even if you don’t have the console, but you’d like to see it resurrected for a new audience. #BringBackLufia
