Today’s issue of Famitsu included a spread on Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8: Final Chapter Prologue, showing new screenshots of the three parts that will include the upcoming decimal mash-up of the Kingdom Hearts series, Kingdom Hearts 0.2: Birth by Sleep – A Fragmentary Passage, Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance HD and Kingdom Hearts χ Back Cover.

We get to see a cooperative action with Aqua and Mickey, on top of rather spectacular fire and lightning attacks, and a battle against a vicious enemy named Darkside, who dwells in the World of Darkness, which is an extremely dangerous place.

The screenshots also showcase and the ability to customize Aqua by attaching accessories to her head, shoulders and back, but also by changing her costume’s colors with patterns unlocked via in-game challenges.

The images from Dream Drop Distance HD also showcase new spirits that can support Sora and Riku, while those from Kingdom Hearts χ Back Cover mostly feature Luxu and Ephemera.

Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue will launch in Japan on January 12th, followed by a worldwide release on January 24th, exclusively for PS4.

You can also check out the most recent trailer, with either its original Japanese theme song, or the English one.

Enjoy the screenshots below, but do keep in mind that they come from magazine scans, so they’re not representative of the final quality of the game.
