Kingdom Hearts 2.8 gets new trailer, now launching on January 12th in Japan

Square Enix has announced that Kingdom Hearts 2.8: Final Chapter Prologue will release on January 12, 2017 in Japan.

Back at E3 Square Enix announced the game for December of this year, but the game has apparently slipped by a few weeks - but we now at least have a solid day in January. It's unclear if this release date is worldwide, but we'll report with an update when we know.

The official website of Kingdom Hearts 2.8 also confirms that there will be DLC for the game when it launches, a first for Kingdom Hearts. The game works as something of a prequel to Kingdom Hearts 3, packaging together a remake of Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance with two all-new chapters, one playable. 

Here's the latest trailer - you can also find the newly-released box art below.



Square Enix NA has uploaded the English version of the TGS trailer, showing a North American release date of January 24. Find the trailer and a selection of screenshots below.
