Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue featured in Shonen Jump magazine, shows off new Aqua model & new screenshot including Ven and Terra

Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue was given a 1 page spread in the Weekly Shonen Jump magazine in Japan. The page most predominantly features the new model of Aqua used in Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue as well as a few screenshots of gameplay, the opening cinematic, as well as a screenshot of a never before scene taking place in the Dwarf Woodlands world in Birth by Sleep 0.2 -A Fragmentary Passage- with Terra and Ventus making an appearance. In this particular screenshot, there seems to be a difference in Ventus's outfit, as it shows a different color scheme for his jacket and seams compared to his default outfit, as you can see below. A screenshot from the Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth by Sleep -A Fragmentary Passage- has also been provided for comparison.

You scan see scans of the magazine below thanks to Twitter users @kazu4281 and @xenosaga7.


Translations of the spread are now available thanks to Katie Armstrong. You can read them below.

Point 1 - A New Work (Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth By Sleep -A Fragmentary Passage-)
Aqua fell into the Realm of Darkness; here's the story of what happened after.

Point 2 - A New Film (Kingdom Hearts X Back Cover)
The beginning story; this depicts the oldest episode in the series.

Point 3 - HD Remaster (Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance HD Remaster)
The story of Sora and company take on the examination for the Mark of Mastery.

What's the Kingdom Hearts series?
"Keyblade" wielders adventure far and wide in this series. Disney characters and Final Fantasy series characters co-star in this profound story, with thrilling action and great charm.

A young woman who is a Keyblade Master. For the sake of her friends, she fell into the Realm of Darkness alone. She has a strong sense of justice.

What do you think of Terra and Ven's appearances in BbS 0.2 that we've seen so far? Let us know in the comments?

I look forward to seeing that in next week's issue of Jump since I am a subscriber xD.

Aqua's face looking a little strange,or is that just the scan quality?

Could be scan quality I suppose but I think she looks quite nice! Not quite as beautiful as the opening cinematic, but that's to be expected. However, the character models looked much better in the TGS BbS 0.2 demo in comparison to the E3 one so I'm sure everything will look great in the finished product.

Damn the woods look pretty nice :O

I think this is the best HD model we've seen so far, or at least the one that looks the most like the KH style. Sora's KH3 model and Aqua's previous HD model both looked good in motion, but the facial features are really off in static shots. This one I like.

Hmm, most interesting! Thanks for this information, human! :D


So, looks like blondie here has a slightly different pattern on his jacket on that screenshot, eh?  That seems like something that's out of place...unless we're looking at a potential secret...? Maybe regarding Vennie's true identity, as a Keyblade Wielder from the Age Of Fairy Tales perhaps...? Hmm...


Also, Ms. Blue eyes radiant chick is looking just great! And powerful! This is exciting! :D

Looks amazing!!!!!

Okay so we know that entering the castle in Castle of Dreams actually takes you into Dwarf Woodlands, right? So I'm willing to bet that entering the Hautend Forest in Dwarf Woodlands actually takes you to Enchanted Dominion (specifically the Forbidden Fortess) judging by that Screenshot. Though this is just a guess. I could be wrong since we see Aqua in the Dwarf's Mine which you normally have to go through the forest to get to, but how knows how the layout of a world changes in the Realm of Darkness, Maybe the mine is actually between the forest and the castle.

This is cool can't wait for the translations.  I'm sure the different pattern on Ven's cloths isn't anything that serious.  But man it's looking so good I can't wait to see what the final product will be and can't wait to actually have this game in my hands!  

Is this another graphical error related to Ven? Seriously!? Is it too much to ask that anything related to Ventus can just get rendered correctly? I'm supposed to be enjoying this but the idea that they made another mistake related to Ven just leaves me scratching my head.
