It has been brought to our attention by @Hayabusa that after unlocking one of three themes that are supposed to be free in the just released 'Kingdom Hearts 2.8 HD Final Chapter Prologue', you will be charged $2.99 to download the theme rather than being able to download it for free:

To make things even more confusing, KHInsider stated:
Most likely, this appears to be an error that'll hopefully be resolved soon. In the meantime, we'll be waiting for a response from Square-Enix.

EDIT: A GameFaqs user appears to have contacted Square-Enix regarding this issue, stating the following:
EDIT 2: The same user, domnu, also posted a screenshot of the email.

We'll let you know if we hear anything else about this story. Thanks to @Hayabusa for letting us know!

EDIT 3:

According to Churro, a long time figure in the KH community, it seems like the themes are now free. As soon as we hear anything else (or if anyone in NA wants to give us a screenshot of this), we'll update this story more!
The official Kingdom Hearts website has just received a massive update, such as dividing the series into four games (Unchained χ[chi], HD 1.5 + 2.5 Remix, HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue, and of course KH3), new character summaries, worlds being listed with the movie they are based off of, as well as the addition of images and past trailers. Interesting things to note in the updated website include the following timeline:

Hey everyone! If you've been following our social media outlets, you know we teased an announcement that would come today. After some of discussion and prep work over the last two weeks, I'm happy to announce that the KH-Vids staff will be livestreaming Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8: Final Chapter Prologue next weekend on January 28th and January 29th!

We figured it would be a good way to allow everyone in the community, both ours and the broader KH community, to get together and experience the newest installment in the series, whether you're planning to get it now or later on down the line.

On both Saturday and Sunday, we will be streaming the entirety of both Kingdom Hearts X: Back Cover and Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep 0.2 -A Fragmentary Passage-.

We'll be streaming all of this on our Twitch channel, which you can follow by clicking the following link: KH-Vids Twitch Channel.

We're still ironing out a couple things in our collective schedules, so I can't announce the times just yet, but you can stay tuned for an announcement of when the streams will be held in the upcoming week. I'm really excitedfor this, and I hope you guys will join in!

The most recent issue of Dengeki PlayStation once again featured Kingdom Hearts 2.8. This issue seems to be focused mostly on the gameplay systems of the 0.2 and Dream Drop Distance portions of the game. It also seems to mention Sora's appearance in World of Final Fantasy.

However, this issue also features an interview with series composer, Yoko Shimomura. This interview is currently untranslated, but when it is available, we'll let you guys know :)
