Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8: Final Chapter Prologue

Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8: Final Chapter Prologue is coming to PS4, publisher Square Enix has announced. The game will include high-definition remasters of three Kingdom Hearts titles: Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance, Kingdom Hearts X Back Cover, and Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep 0.2. The announcement of Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8: Final Chapter Prologue was made at a press conference held by Sony in the lead up to the Tokyo Game Show. There is also now an official website for the game.

Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 will come to the Playstation 4 in 2016, but no specific release date has been offered yet. The new title follows Square Enix’s pattern of releasing 3 remastered Kingdom Hearts titles in one package. The last package, Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX, compiled remastered versions of Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix, Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep Final Mix, and cutscenes from Kingdom Hearts Re:coded. It was released last year exclusively for Playstation 3.

The announcement puts to rest rumours that have been circulating the internet for some time that a Kingdom Hearts remake was in development for the PS3 and PS4 (although the rumours suggested the title would be Kingdom Hearts 2.9). The rumours originated with a Square Enix developer who listed work on a game called “Kingdom Hearts 2.9” on their LinkedIn page. The developer apparently worked on the game for 10 months and oversaw “game idea planning and documentation” and “boss planning.”

The rumours also suggested that the upcoming Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 remaster would lead directly into Kingdom Hearts III, and that appears to be true. Square Enix revealed Kingdom Hearts III, the long awaited next instalment in the main series, at E3 in 2013. It had actually been in development from as early as 2006, but Square Enix kept it quiet for some time. The publisher recently announced that the game would feature a world from the 2014 animated film, Big Hero 6.

Raiden has a long and interesting history as a vertical shooter in arcades. However, the series is going to get a Super Stardust HD makeover, which means it will switch to a twin-stick format. It comes out in Japan on October 31. There’s no word yet on when it will come out in the West, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it did.

A Gematsu translation of the game’s website says that the full version will have an arcade mode with up to six stages. There will also be an “Unlimited” option for people who want to be at the top of the rankings. It sounds like a pretty straightforward package in terms of what’s inside, but we think the action will be what makes it worth it.

There’s a trailer up top that should help you figure out what to expect. There are, however, different versions of Raiden 3, Raiden 4, and Raiden 5 that you can play right now on the PS5 and PS4, if you can’t wait for this game to come out in the West.

Bandai Namco and Nike designed Tekken 8 sneakers with tag-team designs

Nike, the maker of high-quality shoes, is working with Bandai Namco, the company that makes the Tekken series, to make a pair of sneakers. The fun competition is part of the franchise’s 30th anniversary celebrations. You can get your own pair for $250 or the equivalent in your country, though they’ll probably be worth a lot more on the sneakerhead black market.

Two pairs of Tekken 8 x Nike Air Foamposite One Fist sneakers are set to come out in September 2024, according to shoe fan Sole Retriever (thanks, VGC). The designs are based on Kazuya and Jin, two main characters in the series. You can get them at Nike and some other stores. People who like hypebeasts and fighting games are likely to buy these quickly, so if you like Tekken and shoes that make people talk, you should probably act fast.

Should Bandai Namco and Nike work together? What do you think? Are you going to fight for your own pair? Make sure to take good care of your shoes and keep their value in the comments section below.

There will soon be a new book in Future Press’s Books of Knowledge series, which is FromSoftware’s officially licensed line of hardcover strategy guides. This will help players who are having trouble with Elden Ring’s Shadow of the Erdtree expansion. The base game came with two books, and now you can get the unholy trinity for $45 (or the equivalent amount in your currency). It will ship on September 30th.

Like the first two games, The Lands Between and Shards of Shattering, Shadow of the Erdtree is both a complete guide to how to play and a beautiful artbook with full-page pictures of enemies, landscapes, and weapons. This big book has 352 pages and is likely to sell out quickly, based on how quickly the ones that came before it did.

Do you know a lot about strategy guides? You could read the first two Books of Knowledge. If so, what did you think of them? Leave a comment below and let us know.
