Kingdom Hearts 3 is still a long way off. In the meantime, fans of the Disney and Final Fantasy mashup are being treated to another remaster-compilation called Kingdom Hearts 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue (yep, that's the official name.) The games comes with a HD version of Dream Drop Distance, originally released for the 3DS, and two new experiences called Back Cover and A Fragmentary Passage. Confused yet? Don't worry, Kingdom Hearts is known for its convoluted storyline. Today, Square Enix announced that the PS4 game -- already confirmed for Japan -- will also be coming to the West. It'll be out "globally" sometime this December.

To whet your appetite, the publisher has released a new trailer. It starts with Dream Drop Distance before switching to Fragmentary Passage, a new playable chapter followingAqua in the realm of darkness. The latter half teases Back Cover, a new movie exploring a mysterious group called the "Foretellers" and "the earliest parts of the series' history." It's tied to Unchained X, a smartphone game which recently launched in the US.
