SQUARE ENIX® today announced that Sora, the beloved star of the KINGDOM HEARTS series, has been given an adorable WORLD OF FINAL FANTASY™ makeover, and will be available as free downloadable content for the game this winter.

Commemorating the release of KINGDOM HEARTS HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue early next year, Sora will be available for download for a limited time only, appearing in his KINGDOM HEARTS Dream Drop Distance HD outfit. Further information on how to obtain the Sora champion summon will follow at a later date.

WORLD OF FINAL FANTASY is now available for the PlayStation®4 system for $59.99 and the PlayStation®Vita system for $39.99. The Day One edition includes extra digital content, including an exclusive Sephiroth summon and the Japanese voice-over option add-on.

via PR.

Sora will be a champion summon in the game.

Sweet. Sadly though I'll probably be done with the game by then. Does it have a new game plus?

They already have KH rejects as the main characters, why not have the actual protagonist of KH in thar?

I played the demo and got bored quite quickly (I just didn't grow up on turn-based/random encounter games besides Pokemon). But this is really making me want to try again.

"Sora will be available for download for a limited time only"

So it's a free DLC. Cool, i don't mind.



Have we had any information on FFXII characters appearing tho? That's getting a new release too after all and they seem to be completely absent from what i've seen.

Almost done with the main story and I haven't seen any XII characters so far.

I'm glad that he appears with his Dream Drop Distance HD costume, because I absolutely did not like the Dream Drom Distance Non HD version of the costume.

I'm honestly surprised that Disney own the character. Yes I realise the IP is theirs, but I would have assumed S-E would own the copyright on original characters like Sora, Rikku, Kairi and Ansem, as they were created by S-E employees.

Er this is pretty cool I guess. I still haven't played this game but will when I'm slightly less busy next month.

Hopefully Hashimoto has a bit more to announce regarding KH at PGW (probably not, though Nomura said he was going to tweet 5 times tonight and he only tweeted once so far).

EDIT: NEW KH3 SCREENSHOT!!

God no.

It's bad enough that he's this FF game where there still isn't any rep from II, XII, and XIV.
I don't see why not outside of the obvious reason. Dissidia is going to be supported for a while and they are aiming for a shit ton of characters. They can fit Sora in there somewhere.

I'll be very done with this game by the time any DLC hits. I can't imagine it's more than 40--50 hours, right? I'm only 3 hours in.

It's good and all, but I won't be in a hurry to play through it again any time soon

Looks cute. I guess Sora will be coming to DIssidia in the near future going by that tweet. I'm down with it.

Yeah 40ish sounds about right.

So Xenogears being announced as a mirage wasn't a fluke.

On the other hand, Lann and Reyn in the running for KH3 cameos. They can finally be among their own kind.
