During an interview, Tetsuya Nomura, responsible for Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue, he mentioned that the game will harness the power of the PlayStation Pro.
When Nomura spoke with Dengeki PlayStation (via DualShockers) he mentioned that Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 will have a version for PlayStation Pro that will support 4K, however, did not specify whether this resolution will be native or scalable.
Nomura also mentioned that there will be more news about the game and features for PS4 Pro soon, and we assume it will be very soon, as the game will debut in early 2017. But that’s not all, because the director also gave some details about Kingdom Hearts III and Final Fantasy VII Remake.
Due to the release of Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8, the date to reveal new details about Kingdom Hearts III is under consideration, so Nomura expects the fans to be patient.
On the 15th anniversary of the series, Nouma said that there are plans to make the corresponding celebrations. After the release of Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 and world concert tour that will begin in March, the director hopes to give new details more regularly on Kingdom Hearts III, so all is not lost.
Finally, he also gave information on the expected remake of Final Fantasy VII. Noruma explained that the battle system will change significantly compared to the original, and now will focus more on action. This does not mean that veterans will be excluded, because according to the director, the battle system was designed for fans of yesteryear who can also enjoy the game. For now, the team is working to refine this aspect so we can show it to the players, to make it easier to explain the new mechanics.
Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue will debut in Japan on January 12 and reach worldwide on January 24, only on PlayStation 4. Meanwhile, Kingdom Hearts III and Final Fantasy VII Remake do not have a launch window.
