    So we're getting the walking dead season 4 and The Wolf Among us season 2, but no Game of Thrones season 2? Telltale games please make it happen. It's not too late! :)

    So yeah...if there's STILL people who haven't seen my Traverse Town fanfic yet, you'll find it in Creative Media-look for Traverse Town stuff with the name "lollygagger19" under it-and feel free to leave a reply if you want.


Pre-order bonus and downloadable version of the game to be available for Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue in Japan

Update 2: An Yodobashi Camera store in Japan has put finished versions of all three acrylic stands on display. Image provided thanks to Twitter user @Kazaton.


KH2.8 Pre order bonus



Update 1: Tetsuya Nomura used the official Japanese Kingdom Hearts series Twitter to give a few details about the "AIR" acrylic stand as well as provided pictures of all three stands once they were set up. Nomura explains that the "AIR" stand actually has Sora coming from behind the clouds, which is different than the image that was previously shown (as pictured below, Sora is in front of the clouds). He also adds that he thinks assembly is relatively simple because of the size of the plugs. The new promotional images of the mini acrylic stands can be found below.

The original article follows:

Square Enix Japan have updated their Special/DLC page for the Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue with exciting news. Fans in Japan will be able to obtain, at random, one of three mini acrylic stands drawn by series director Tetsuya Nomura if they pre-order a physical copy of the game from select retailers. These will also be available in limited stock with pre-orders from Amazon Japan. You can see pictures of the stands below.

New pre-orders of the game from Amazon Japan will also be accompanied by an exclusive PS4 theme, previewed below.

Furthermore, Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue will be the first Kingdom Hearts game to be made available for download at the PlayStation Store, with pre-orders in Japan starting mid-November. Pre-orders will also come with a unique Kingdom Hearts PS4 theme, shown below. Interestingly, Nomura had commented on the possibility of a download release for Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep in a Dengeki PlayStation interview back in 2011, saying that it was a difficult task for reasons he could not talk about and that did not involve problems with Square Enix, Disney, or Utada Hikaru, the artist behind the Kingdom Hearts theme songs. At the time, he had said that it was a task that required time to make possible.

Square Enix Japan have tweeted that they will announce the start date for pre-orders soon.

Thank to Churro, aibo, and KH13.com user blue490246 for the tips. A complete translation of the Special/DLC webpage has been provided thanks to goldpanner. You can read the translations below.

<Amazon.co.jp Limited Purchase Bonus>

KINGDOM HEARTS 2.8 PS4 Theme (wallpaper)

Those who purchase Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue through Amazon.co.jp will receive a limited bonus PS4 theme (wallpaper). The metallic background and embossed monograms make for a calm toned theme.

*In addition to the above, KINGDOM HEARTS 2.8 Mini Acrylic Stand are available in limited stock.

<Digital Version Early Purchase Bonus>

KINGDOM HEARTS 2.8 PS4 Theme

Those who purchase Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue early through the PlayStation Store will receive a bonus PS theme. It's a cute theme, with a monogrammed background and the icons decorated with KH-esque motifs, such as King Mickeys. It is available to download straight after the preorder has been made. Preorders on the Playstation Store are scheduled to open in mid November.


Are you expecting a digital version of Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue to be available for download outside of Japan? Do you think Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 ReMIX and Kingdom Hearts III will also have downloadable versions in the future? Let us know in the comments below!

Wonder what the West will offer. Specifically Gamestop/EB Games. Should be something good.

I hope we get the good theme from Amazon because I like getting hard copies for KH. 

Ahhhh dat Meow Wow in the AIR one <3 <3 <3

Also, uh, those themes are pretty slick too

This is great actually. This means that Square Enix and Utada's party have come to terms with regards to Utada's songs being in digital games.

 

Another thing to note here is that the 50 dollar (40 if you're an Amazon Prime member) price tag for 1.5+2.5. This could mean the the game will be shipped digitally, eliminating the costs for disc purchases.

it'd be cool if those themes played Dearly Beloved for background music. 

 

wonder what sort of bonuses (if any) the other regions will get? the themes look nice and i actually dig the mini acrylic stands.

Let's hope we get this as part of the Deluxe/Collector's Edition of 2.8. I'm loving the alternate art style that Nomura has provided!

Nomura actually talked about this before and said it had nothing to do with Utada and her music.

Wouldn't mind one of the crystal statues, but lordy I needs me that theme.

Is kingdomhe on the news team now?

 

And that looks pretty sweet! I hope we get something cool like that too.

I hope not. I love havign physical copies of all my KH games. Ux I understand because it's smart phone game, but for a cosole or handheld, I want a hard copy.

I really do hope they make 2.8 available for digital download in the west too...it's gonna be hard to get because Game Stop literally fled out of Puerto Rico :(

Oh well, i always have walmart/best buy/toys r us lmao

What I really want to see is Kingdom Hearts PSN avatars. :P btw dat trophy level 123 in the theme picture. xD

Haha no, the posts got merged. We covered this news late, apologies for that!

Just to clarify, the text actually says that the acryllic stand is the preorder bonus across all of the select retailers, not just a bonus for Amazon Japan. Other international stores like AmiAmi and CDJapan will most likely have this preorder bonus as well. Amazon Japan actually has its own additional limited bonus to the acryllic stand, which is a unique PS4 theme (see below).

 

Screen%20Shot%202016-10-31%20at%207.51.0

 

You can choose to buy the game with both the Amazon Japan bonus and the acryllic stand, either or, or neither on Amazon Japan. I preordered the game originally on Amazon Japan before these bonuses were announced, and it looks like I got the version with the acryllic stand but not the Amazon Japan PS4 theme, so if anyone also preordered the game earlier on Amazon Japan, looks like that'll be the version you get by default. The Amazon Japan bonus + acryllic stand version is actually sold out already for preorder as of now.

We're literally waiting on Gold's translations on that webpage to add in the little details! :D

Sorry! Didn't mean to jump the gun here, just wanted to share my experience so far with my purchase of the Japanese version of the game on Amazon Japan in case anyone was new to this and wanted to give it a try too.

Oh that's fine, I wasn't criticizing you actually :) Although in the article I did write select retailers.

 

 

Aaaaand translations haven't come in yet... so I'll actually add what you just told me :)

Yeah, nope my face is just on here.

I need that PS4 theme! <3 :D

Is the PS4 theme only for digital downloads? I would love to get the theme but I'd rather have a physical copy.

Is it possible to cancel the PSN pre-order after you have aquired the theme, and not lose it?

I will be mad if they dont release the theme seperately, its fkn gorgeous.

Japan always get the good shit.
