Due out for release on on January 24th for the PS4, Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue received a story trailer that attempts to piece together all of the different games that are made available in the compilation pack and give gamers one cohesive trailer to outline the story with. The sad reality is that the trailer fails to do so in a grand way given just how convoluted everything is.
Spanning two and a half minutes, the “simple and clean” trailer is anything but simple and clean. It attempts to explain the connection between Sora and some of the other characters, as well as how he managed to get his hands on the keyblade, and what his role is in saving the world thereafter. You can check out the trailer below.
The major problem is that if you haven’t played the Kingdom Hearts games before this very moment and you have absolutely no idea what the games are about, and you’re interested in playing catch-up so you can better understand what they have planned for Kingdom Hearts 3, this trailer doesn’t do a very good job of catching you up.
I will admit that it’s definitely more cohesive than the previous trailers, which just seemed to take random bits of gameplay and cinematics from the other games and compile them into one. At least here they do attempt to explain how some of the other characters joined in on the adventure.
The YouTube comment section is completely lit up with good vibes and strong feedback from fans, many of whom were concerned about whether or not Haley Joel Osment returned to voice Sora. A lot of people are concerned that it might be someone else or maybe he’s become too old to play Sora.
Anyway, Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue will wrap up all the loose ends and tie-up all of the components from the previous games into one package as it readies gamers for the mysterious Kingdom Hearts 3.
You can look to get your hands on Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue starting January 24th, 2017 for the PS4.
