An opening movie for "Kingdom Hearts" 2.8: Final Chapter Prologue in HD, also known as the "Kingdom Hearts" 0.2 Birth by Sleep was recently released and fans are already going gaga over it. The trailer revealed some sneak peaks as to what fans will be expecting from the much-awaited game and its connection to "Kingdom Hearts 3."

'Kingdom Hearts 3' Release Date, News & Update: 'KH 0.2 Birth By Sleep' Has An Important Connection To 'KH 3'

The very first scene of "Kingdom Hearts 3" showed Sora picking up the Master's Defender off the shore of Destiny Islands. This gave fans a hint that Aqua somehow sent the Keyblade from the Realm of Darkness to Destiny Islands.

Similar to the way Kairi sent her letter in the bottle from Destiny Islands and it ended up in the Realm of Darkness at the end of "Kingdom Hearts 2." With the recent "0.2 Birth By Sleep" opening cinematic, we see a scene right at the end with Sora's hand reaching out for Aqua's through the water. This must be a direct connection to "Kingdom Hearts 3."

In a sense, this could mean a number of things. First of all, this could be a hint towards Sora saving Aqua. It is already known that at the end of "0.2 Birth By Sleep, Aqua will finally be saved, we just don't know who will be the one to do so.

It could be possible that Sora return to Destiny Islands to find the Master's Defender on the beach or even Aqua washed off the shore. A possibility is that at the end of "0.2 Birth By Sleep" Aqua sends the Master's Defender from the dark margin and hope that it finds its way to Sora.

The "Kingdom Hearts 3" trailer revealed that "KH 3" is "currently in development." "Kingdom Hearts" HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue, on the other hand, will be available in PS4 on Jan. 24, 2017.
