However, Sony is working day and night with Square-Enix, as Kingdom Hearts 2.8 HD Final Chapter Prologue will support PlayStation 4 Pro features.
It was Tetsuya Nomura who talked about this question and he expressly said that Kingdom Hearts 2.8 will support PlayStation 4 Pro enhanced features (even if we don’t know if 4K will be native), portraying high quality images.
Nomura also talked about Kingdom Hearts III development and, according to his words, things are doing very good.
Kingdom Hearts 3 development is going extremely good. Players will be able to explore new worlds and it will be exciting to try this new gameplay we are working on. We’ve learned a lot of things with our handheld games and we are going to add a lot of new stuff. However, classic Kingdom Hearts elements will be found too.
Save the date, a lot of Kingdom Hearts PS4 games are coming.
Kingdom Hearts 2.8 HD is releasing for PS4 on January 24, 2017, while Kingdom Hearts 1.5 & 2.5 are scheduled to release on March 31st.
