Square Enix shared a new screenshot from Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8: Final Chapter Prologue on the occasion of Kingdom Hearts‘ anniversary.
The screenshot depicts Daybreak Town, a location that will be making a reappearance in Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8: Final Chapter Prologue. The anthology remakes Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance HD and Kingdom Hearts 0.2: Birth by Sleep–A Fragmentary Passage in Unreal Engine 4, and adds something new, Kingdom Hearts χ Back Cover. Daybreak Town is the hub for popular spin-off mobile game Kingdom Hearts χ. However, Kingdom Hearts χ Back Cover is not a full port of Kingdom Hearts χ. It merely remakes the scenes from Kingdom Hearts χ in HD.
