Developer- and Publisher-specific Articles: Kingdom Hearts III
Square Enix released a new trailer for Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue at Jump Festa 2015 in Japan. Included in the packed five-minute-long video are new scenes from the extra Birth by Sleep playable episode A Fragmentary Passage, the HD movie Back x [chi] Cover, and remastered gameplay from Dream Drop Distance. And squeezed in at the end is a snippet of new combat footage from Kingdom Hearts III.
Square Enix had a very Final Fantasy-heavy E3 showing, with news about Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, new media from Final Fantasy X|X-2 HD Remaster, and the reveal that Final Fantasy Versus XIII is now Final Fantasy XV. The studio also had surprises in store, including the announcement that Deus Ex: Human Revolution: Director’s Cut is going multiplatform and that the next entry in the Kingdom Hearts series is well underway.
