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 :)

The Sora summon DLC for 'World of Final Fantasy' is now available through an update for free in Japan! To celebrate the DLC's release, Square-Enix released the above trailer. For those of you who play 'World of Final Fantasy', enjoy a bit of KH in the game.

EDIT: Square-Enix has also confirmed that the DLC will be released in NA/EU on January 24th, the same day as 2.8's release!

It looks like Square Enix is looking for more ways to honor our Dearly Beloved series, Kingdom Hearts, for it's 15th anniversary!

According to 4Gamer, from January 9th to the 15th, a Kingdom Hearts stained glass clock memorial exhibition will be in Shinjuku Station in Japan. The clocks (seen above and featured in greater detail below) will feature various Kingdom Hearts characters and a countdown to the release of Kingdom Hearts 2.8 (in Japan).
