This is a brand-new episode set directly after the events of KH Birth by Sleep, which was released on the PSP in 2010. Created with the same game engine as KHIII, still awaiting completion, this world brought to life with beautiful visuals lets you get a feel of the future of the series. The plot follows the main character Aqua, who has been left all alone in the Realm of Darkness. In the latest trailer, released at TGS 2016, it came to light that she meets King Mickey there!

WORK 3: KINGDOM HEARTS KEY BACK COVER
>The oldest story in the series as a HD cinematic piece!
This is a completely new cinematic piece that tells the mystery-shrouded tale of the Foretellers, and what was happening behind the scenes of the now in-service smartphone app KH Unchained Key. The Master of Masters, known as Him, had eyes that saw the future. Saddened by the future waiting ahead, He gave five of His six disciples a tome of prophecy, in which he had recorded the future. The five disciples were permitted to make copies of the tom of prophecy, and were given orders. However, as its content goes around, things collapse into suspicion...
>Chirithy: A mysterious creature with the outward appearance of a cat. It is something like the mascot character of KH Unchained Key, and it guides the player who joins the story as a Keyblade Wielder.
>The orders given to the Foretellers brought to light?
>Depicting the events that happened long, long before Sora and friends set out on their adventures
>A traitor among the Foretellers!?
>The future of the light is in the hands of the young Keyblade Wielders
>TGS 2016 KH Display Report
With two demos on display, we felt for ourselves the staggering attention to detail
This was the first time a KH 2.8 demo was on display in Japan! A display version of KH 0.2 with Japanese voicing was available to play at E3 2016. With KH DDD, a new shortcut function related to link attacks with Spirits made an appearance. In the original game, performing link attacks and switching involved swapping to the command window using the left and right directional buttons, but now with this shortcut, holding the L2 button displays the window! This will make battling in the dream worlds way more exciting! (--Suzutaku)
Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue will release on January 12th, 2017 in Japan, and January 24th, 2017 internationally.
