HOLY VIDEO GAMES, BATMAN!
There are so many awesome games coming out in the next few years for the Playstation 4 that I can’t even handle it. I feel like I could die from sheer excitement.
Final Fantasy XV, Final Fantasy VII Remake, Kingdom Hearts III and now, Square Enix has added yet ANOTHER GAME into this freakishly awesome lineup.
What game could I possibly be talking about? For those of you who aren’t the Kingdom Hearts obsessed…
KINGDOM HEARTS II.8 HAS BEEN ANNOUNCED.
YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW EXCITED I AM ABOUT THIS. It was literally the first thing I saw in my newsfeed on my phone on Tuesday.
I’m oddly more excited about 2.8 than KHIII. I suppose because it feels more tangible and real? I’m so used to waiting for KHIII that a few more years is no big deal. I can wait, it’ll happen (Eventually). I’ve been waiting for KHIII since KHII came out in 2005. Yes. It’s seriously been that long. KINGDOM HEARTS II CAME OUT TEN YEARS AGO. Yes. I’m old. You’re old. We’re all old geezers and will die a terrible and fiery death from the sun expanding into a red giant and devouring us all before Kingdom Hearts III ever comes out. Get over it.
Again, for those who are not Kingdom Hearts obsessed but are intrigued (or maybe not intrigued, you clicked on this page because it had Batman and video games in the title. You feel a little mislead and deceived and are not really sure why you’re still here. Thank you for sticking around. It’s appreciated. Keep being your awesome self.), what is Kingdom Hearts II.8 and why should you care?
It’s full title is actually Kingdom Hearts HD II.8 Final Chapter Prologue
KHII.8 will include:
- KINGDOM HEARTS Drop Dream Distance.
“Series protagonists Sora and Riku take on the Mark of Mastery exam in preparation for coming threats. The signature action of the KINGDOM HEARTS series has evolved, allowing players to experience faster-paced battles and exploration at a blistering pace.” (KHinsider)
- KINGDOM HEARTS 0.2 Birth by Sleep – A Fragmentary Passage –
“A completely new playable episode that links to the story of KINGDOM HEARTS III, taking place after the storyline of KINGDOM HEARTS Birth by Sleep played from the perspective of Aqua.” (KHinsider)
- KINGDOM HEARTS χ [chi] Back Cover (movie)
“A new HD movie that tells the mysterious story of the Foretellers, connecting the earliest parts of the series’ history, showcased in the upcoming mobile title KINGDOM HEARTS Unchained χ[chi].” (KHinsider)
Sounds pretty awesome amirite? The only downside is it won’t be available till sometime next year (2016)!
While you’re waiting for KHII.8 to come out, the library has plenty of Kingdom Hearts material to keep you busy! You could be insane like me and attempt to platinum KH1.5 and 2.5! It definitely kills time.
Will KHII.8 it answer more questions? Hopefully. Will it add more questions to the series that is a rollercoaster ride of complexity? Oh you bet.
