Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue has finally released, and it advanced the series' story for the first time since 2012's Dream Drop Distance. Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth by Sleep: A Fragmentary Passage was probably the biggest draw to the newest HD collection of games due to its ties with the upcoming Kingdom Hearts III. It follows Aqua after the events of Birth by Sleep and shows everything that happened to her in the ten years that went by between then and the original Kingdom Hearts. By showing this, Square Enix has set up a huge part of the plot for the series' future, and it couldn't have been more perfect.
