      And the prize for worst ****ing name in the history of gaming goes to...

      I guess Fragmentary Passage will be BBS Vol 2 then.

      Wasn't expecting kind of news although I'm not surprised. At least there will be more content than just a hd remake of kh3d.

      playing as bae in kh3 visuals? preorder confirmed

      Nice to see 2.9 2.8 confirmed officially. The inclusion of another (mini?) BBS chapter is sorta weird, but considering Aqua's been there like...11 years, there's probably some weird Xehanort related thing only she knows (plus the Realm of Darkness and Aqua in KH3 visuals, lord have mercy). And I guess this also answers why the LinkdIn had stuff like attraction flow listed for 2.8, EXCITED TO GO ROLLERCOASTIN' WITH MY BLUE HAIRED GF.

      I am so thrilled we get this small bit with Aqua!!! Oh my word! Finally... FINALLY!! I get to see what the heck this girl has been doing for 11 years!! This is the highlight for me. Not to mention the reason I will pre-order this! SO EXCITED!!!

      Ah yes, the set-up for the set-up, lmao. Aside from the otherwise weird titles, looks pretty cool. I do feel like it will be quite overwhelming with the amount of backstory and exposition in prep for KH3 :| (especially for localized versions where we didn't even have the luxury of taking in KHchi[x]'s story)

      Gonna need that PS4 sooner than I thought though D; Perhaps a bundle will be most likely in store for next year...

      As much as I love the 0.2 Birth by Sleep idea, is this a cruel joke? Let's just make a remake of every game that has been out for the past two or three years. Really? And a Kingdom Hearts X back story? I just want Kingdom Hearts 3. Is that too much to ask Square? They are taking advantage of the series.

      Wow. We talked about there being a demo or mini-prequel, but didn't expect it to be BBS Vol 2. Was afraid that would never see the light of day.

      I wonder if it was originally going to be the beginning of KH3, but decided to make it standalone. I mean they got a lot of criticism for how long the Roxas prologue was in 2.

      And here are some preliminary comparison shots of Dream Drop Distance HD. Some things to note are the added detail on Riku's shirt (vertical lines on collar, more zipper teeth, etc.) and Sora's gloves. It's also very apparent on Sora that they took care to uprez their character models. See how his shirt sleeve goes from a square shape to a circle, and that his cardboard paws were replaced with actual individual fingers. Some background textures are also changed. Note the the platform in The World That Never Was.

      Thanks for the news. Look forward to hearing more about this.

      Just watched the trailer, I'm very surprised by a 2016 release. I'm guessing it will be later in the year and that the BBS thing won't be very long, then, but damn that's soon.

      I guess this means the entire series has officially left handhelds behind. About damn time. Love the idea that I can experience all games on my HD TV. Also... Aqua in KH3 graphics!! Was beginning to think they completely forgot about the BBS:FM secret ending.

      Ths name kind of bothers me, but I'm sure I'll look past it once I start playing.
      Kingdom Hearts X will be features as to help people who won't be playing the mobile game understand the book of prophecy, lore of the keyblades, and all that other good stuff.
      I wish they'd given me more than just the back of Aqua's head for the new chapter... I know her story won't be too long, but I still want to play as HD Aqua dernit >:C

      It seemed to me as though aquas hair was longer, so they hopefully will show some growth in characters
