Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue looks set to release on Xbox One later this month

A Microsoft store listing briefly popped up before it was promptly deleted again.

It looks like Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue might be coming to Xbox One later this month.

As spotted by Gematsu, a Microsoft store listing briefly popped up before it was promptly deleted again, intimating it was premature confirmation that the game is set to debut on Xbox One on 18th February 2020.

Just like it's Sony sibling, it will contain the following games in a single bundle:

  • Kingdom Hearts HD Dream Drop Distance: A full HD remastered version of Kingdom Hearts 3D [Dream Drop Distance];
  • Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth by Sleep - A fragmentary passage - A completely new playable episode that links to the story of Kingdom Hearts 3, taking place after the storyline of Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep played from the perspective of Aqua; and
  • Kingdom Hearts χ [chi] Back Cover: A new HD movie that tells the mysterious story of the Foretellers.

Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue was first released on PlayStation 4 way back in January 2017.

It's not the first time we've learned details about Kingdom Hearts ahead of Square Enix's schedule. In December, director Tetsuya Nomura told us he was unable to share a release date for Kingdom Hearts 3's Re:Mind DLC because "people would get mad at him" but just seven days later, a new teaser on Square Enix's YouTube channel revealed one: 23rd January 2020, for PlayStation 4, and 25th February for Xbox One.

Square Enix seemingly wasn't quite ready to make the announcement then, though, as it pulled the trailer shortly afterwards.
