#1921042 Unlockable themes for Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue come at a...

Posted by soraspromise on 24 January 2017 - 11:07 PM

UPDATE #3: The error has been fixed. The theme(s) are now free for everyone to download once you beat the games. For those who have already mistakenly purchased the theme(s), we recommend contacting PSN support to ask for a refund. Sony may ask for proof that the themes are free. Feel free to use the image below, courtesy of Reddit user Stonewall30nyr.

UPDATE #2:



Square-Enix have emailed us back talking about the theme situation. You can read it below.

Thank you for contacting SQUARE ENIX support,

We apologize for the delay in our response. The team looked into this issue and found that there appears to be an error with the game at this time. As recently reported by various users, the PSN theme(s) that are unlocked when completing the game(s) are requiring users to pay $2.99 (USD), but this is indeed an error. The PSN Theme(s) are supposed to be FREE for users as a reward for completing the game(s).

Our KINGDOM HEARTS support team, as well as management and development, have been informed of the issue, and are currently working to resolve the error in a timely manner. At this time, we must kindly ask for your patience while the issue is investigated, and we urge you to refrain from purchasing the PSN Theme(s), since they should be downloadable for free once the back-end error is fixed.

*If you have already purchased the theme(s), we sincerely apologize, as that was not our intention. We are currently working with the KINGDOM HEARTS team and Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA) to issue a proper reimbursement for the mistakenly purchased PSN Theme(s).

Again, we sincerely apologize for the inconvenience, but rest assured that our teams are working to resolve the issue in a timely manner. We thank you for contacting us, and we hope you continue to enjoy playing KINGDOM HEARTS HD 2.8: Final Chapter Prologue, and best of luck in battle!


Thank you for contacting the SQUARE ENIX Support Center.

The original article follows:

With the release of Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue, many fans have bundled up and begun to play on their PlayStation 4's. One feature that may be familiar to fans is the unlockable themes that players can obtain after completing each title. In both Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX & HD 2.5 ReMIX, these themes were free for players and were able to download and put these themes on their home screens after completion. However, for Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue, the themes are currently not free.

Once you complete each title in the collection (Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth by Sleep -A Fragmentary Passage-, Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance HD, & Kingdom Hearts χ Back Cover) you will receive the option to obtain the theme for that individual title. However, they are currently priced at $2.99 when you select them to download. While it may seem like an error, seeing as they are free everywhere else, reddit user AsinineBinkie reports that they got a response from Square Enix support that read as follows:

Please note, completing KINGDOM HEARTS HD 2.8: Final Chapter Prologue will only unlock the ability to purchase the PlayStation themes, it is not a reward that is received for free for beating the game. We do apologize for the confusion.

Keep in mind that Square Enix has not made a public comment on the themes as of yet. Also, please note that the priced themes are only shown in the North American version of Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue.

Update: A screenshot of a similar email has been provided by GameFAQs user domnu which you can view below.

Update: If you did indeed purchase the themes before they became free, we recommend contacting PSN for a refund. Proof that the themes are now free in North America is displayed below. Credit goes to reddit user Stonewall30nyr

#1914687 PlayStation Japan Blog features Kingdom Hearts χ Back Cover details and new s...

Posted by soraspromise on 06 January 2017 - 01:29 PM

Shortly following their post on Birth by Sleep 0.2 -A Fragmentary Passage-, PlayStation Japan's blog has posted another feature, this time focusing on Kingdom Hearts χ Back Cover, the cinematic component of Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue. Thank you to aibo_ac7 for the tip!

This new blog post features small blurbs about the cinematic itself, traits about the characters that appear throughout the cinematic, as well as a few new screenshots. Translations can be found below thanks to Catherine Mueller (nichiei.translations@gmail.com) as well as the screenshots from the blog post.

The world and characters of the theatrical production [KH X Back Cover] close in on the series' mysteries (3rd special/Dengeki PS)

[Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue] will appear on the PlayStation 4 as the series' newest release. This time, we'll check out one of the three productions in this package, the theatrical production [Kingdom Hearts X Back Cover (hereon KHXBC)]! This special edition of Dengeki PlayStation will cover the happenings of the oldest tale in the series.


[KHXBC] is an all-new theatrical production that runs a little less than an hour. By checking out the world and characters, we should be able to understand the story more deeply. There are all kinds of developments to keep pulling in the interest of the series' fans!


The series' oldest tale tells of the “back side”


The story of [KHXBC] is the story of what happened the in furthest point back in the [KH] series. It tells the story of the other side of the events of [KH Unchained X], a smart phone app that started September 2015. You can enjoy this product on its own, too, but it's no mistake to say that those who have played [KH Unchained X] will find it more interesting.


The setting is a town that exists someplace in the worlds, “Daybreak Town.” It will become clear as to what kind of people the “Foretellers”--the characters that guide the player in [KH Unchained X]--are, and what they're planning to do...


A story full of mystery will unfold with the Master and his apprentices!


The axes of this story are the six Foretellers under the powerful “Master of Masters.” Each of them received a Book of Prophecies, and the five Foretellers who come to run Unions are the main characters. Here, we'll take a more detailed look as to each of the characters.


Ira


The Foreteller who bears a unicorn mask and leads the Unicornis union. He has a reliable personality, and is often teased by the Master for being too serious.


Invi

<Nonsense.>


The Foreteller who bears a snake mask and leads the Anguis union. She has a noble personality and holds great faith in the Master.


Aced

<If that's so, then what about you!?>


The Foreteller who wears a bear mask and leads the Ursus union. He has a daring personality, but he can be too frank with his feelings and gets reckless.


Ava

<I want to protect the Master's teachings.>


The Foreteller who bears a fox mask and leads the Vulpeus union. She has a cautious personality, and it seems that other Keyblade wielders speak of her as a friend.


Gula

<Eh? This is a page of the Book of Prophecies, is it not?>


The Foreteller who wears a leopard mask and leads the Leopardus union. He has a collected personality, and it seems he does not have any feelings of fellowship toward the other Foretellers.

Luxu

<With a heart that follows the key...>


One of the six apprentices of the Master. He is the only one not to receive a Book of Prophecies, but instead, he was entrusted with a Keyblade and a black cloak.


Master of Masters

<Whoever the traitor might be, deal with it calmly, all right?>


A mysterious being who has six apprentices. He has eyes that can see the future, and in his grief of the future, he gave five of his apprentices Books of Prophecies and a mission.


Chirithy


(Left side of the picture) A mysterious cat-like being. He acts as the players' navigator in [KH Unchained X], but in this production...?


Ephemer

<Cheer up, okay?>


A Keyblade wielder. He's sociable and doesn't fear much, and even toward the Foretellers, this bright young man speaks in a carefree way.


There's a traitor amongst the Foretellers!?


The Foretellers received the Book of Prophecies and a mission from the Master, and they act based on his teachings. However, a fissure appeared in the five Foretellers' relationship as suddenly, one day, news of the existence of a “traitor” surfaces. Who on earth could be the traitor--plagued by their doubt, the balance of the Foretellers will gradually fall apart...


[KHXBC] is a theatrical production, and is only being produced as a movie (TN: i.e., they have no plans to make this a game, as per the previous interview). By checking out this content in advance, the story should be easier to understand, as well as to make conjectures. Well, since we'll tell you about [KH Dream Drop Distance HD] next time, please check it out!


The series' newest title is coming out soon, but if you reserve a copy through the PlayStation Store now, you'll get a special theme to use. There's still time, so don't miss it!

Posted by soraspromise on 04 January 2017 - 07:58 PM

In Game Informer's review for Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue, it is stated that Birth by Sleep 0.2 -A Fragmentary Passage- ends with a lengthy cutscene that presumably leads into the beginning of Kingdom Hearts III. Gameinformer describes the scene as characters "embarking on the next part of their journey" and that the scene overall moves the story forward.

What do you think we'll see at the end of Birth by Sleep -A Fragmentary Passage-? Let us know in the comments below!

#1912534 Nomura hints at customization being a possible element in Kingdom Hearts III...

Posted by soraspromise on 31 December 2016 - 12:43 AM

In an extended version of Dengeki PlayStation's interview with Kingdom Hearts series director Tetsuya Nomura, the question was asked of whether or not Kingdom Hearts III would also have customization as a game feature.

Tetsuya Nomura answered that it would be considered depending on the reaction towards the feature in Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep 0.2 -A Fragmentary Passage- as well as the consideration of whether or not they have the time to implement it.

You can find the direct quote from the interview below, with translations thanks to Catherine Mueller (nichiei.translations@gmail.com).

--The character decoration is the first in the series and is a novel component.

I thought that we needed something fun to play around with even in with the game's jam-packed volume, so the staff devised this at the last minute for me. It really changes the character's look, so please gather a lot of items and design your own Aqua.

--Will you use the decoration feature in [KHIII]?

We knew we could insert that feature into the game this time, but whether or not we can with [KHIII]...we have other priorities ahead of us so it depends on time, but we'll look at the reaction with [KH0.2] and consider it.

Would you like to see customization in Kingdom Hearts III? Let us know in the comments!

#1911298 Hokanko Alt blog post gives details of Famitsu review of Kingdom Hearts HD 2....

Posted by soraspromise on 27 December 2016 - 01:56 PM

Among reviews for various other new games, Hokanko Alt's look into Famitsu's review for the game gives fans a few new insights into Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue. Thanks to aibo_ac7 for the tip!

Their review starts off by saying that Dream Drop Distance HD took around 35 hours to clear, while Birth by Sleep 0.2 -A Fragmentary Passage- took around 3 to 4 hours. It also goes on to say that depending on individual play style, that time can easily be doubled.

It also says that the Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue is a great build up for Kingdom Hearts III and also say that Dream Drop Distance HD almost feels like a full remake. The 60 FPS is very smooth and the play is comfortable. They also highly praise Birth by Sleep 0.2, but also say that they wish there was just a little more volume to it. Not much was said about Kingdom Hearts χ Back Cover other than it is definitely worth seeing.

Their final scores for the whole collection are 8/9/8/9.

Update: The full review is now available from Famitsu Weekly. Translations and scans can be found below with translations provided by Catherine Mueller (nichiei.translations@gmail.com).

KINGDOM HEARTS HD 2.8 FINAL CHAPTER PROLOGUE

PS4 PlayStation4

Square Enix

Release Date 1/12/2017

6800 yen before tax (7344 tax included)

Action RPG


A record of three tales that tie into the upcoming [Kingdom Hearts III]--the brand-new short story [0.2], the theatrical production [X BC], and the 3D HD remaster of the 2012 release [DDD]


Maker Survey:


[Target Audience]

[KH] and [FF] series fans, Square Enix fans, RPG and action game fans, Disney fans


[Average play time]

[DDD] has a clear time of 35 hours, [0.2] will take about 3 to 4 hours to clear, depending on one's play style--you can enjoy it even longer than that



Yoshida:

This is content that really is steered toward the series fans with the HD remake, along with its new short story and theatrical production. Since this is the first series title to be released on the PS4, by exploring with the short title [0.2], we strongly feel that you will be able to feel even more hopeful for the release of [III]. I'm happy to be releasing three different productions on this system, but when you all understand the weight of it more, that will be even better.


Ashida:

In order to strengthen the hopes of the fans, we're releasing these three totally different productions that will all tie into [Kingdom Hearts III]. I'm fascinated by the new story we can see in [0.2] with Aqua, and it's the best feeling seeing each of her actions flow together. I have a good feeling with [X BC], too. The “free flow action” in [DDD] is exhilarating, and I'm happy that the play style has become so pleasant with the improvement to 60fps.

Namuko:

With movements as smooth as flying through the sky, playing in a fighting style that heavily relies on magic goes well with Disney worlds. The remaster of [DDD], which has a more cartoonish touch, is of course included in this, and so is [0.2], which seems like a movie on the PS4--I really felt that feeling again watching them. In regards to the things we've used in the stories thus far, it may leave new users a bit hazy at first, but they do not hinder the player's ability to enjoy the games.


Bunbun-Maru:

This is a great product to review the story that will connect us into [III]. The world of [Kingdom Hearts] that's shown on the PS4 is, as expected, brilliant. Since [3D] has been remade in full to HD, if you feel the wonder in that, please buy it. Several things in the game make it easier to play, and I'm happy to see that the new production [0.2] is included as well, but I do wish that one had a bit more volume.



THIS WEEK!

Buy it this week!


If you're a fan lying in wait of [III], [Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8] is a title you can't miss. [STEEP] is an important title in which you can explore an open world in the snowy mountains. Also, for those using the PS VR, in [Roller Coaster Dreams], you can make an original jet coaster and fly around. (Ranbu Yoshida)


First is [New Dangan Ronpa V3]. There are a lot of new nuances added to the “school trials,” but it's nice that it hasn't become more difficult. [Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8] is definitely one not to be missed by its fans. [Treasure Defender] is a game you'll want to play over and over until you have cleared the game without losing a single treasure to the thieves. (Jigoro Ashida)
