While originally slated to release this December, Kingdom Hearts HD II.8 -- Final Chapter Prologue will now release next year on January 12 in Japan and January 28 in the west.
Square Enix revealed the 2017 release date in a new trailer that made its debut at Tokyo Game Show.
Kingdom Hearts HD II.8 -- Final Chapter Prologue is a PlayStation 4-exclusive compilation that includes Kingdom Hearts χ [chi] Back Cover, 0.2 Birth By Sleep - A Fragmentary Passage - and a remastered version of the Nintendo 3DS game Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance.
While prior Kingdom Hearts HD collections currently remain exclusive to PlayStation 3, Kingdom Hearts 3 co-director Tai Yasue told IGN earlier this year at E3 that the studio is not ruling out the possibility of bringing those earlier compilations to PS4 sometime in the future.
