Many fans are apparently in the dark when it came to the "Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue." According to reports, even fans of the series that have played all the games still find the entire storyline confusing sometimes. The latest entry into the Square Enix and Disney collaboration still has some parts that get a little complex, but supposedly features an enjoyable gameplay experience and a prologue to "Kingdom Hearts III"

Some gamers supposedly doubt that the third game in the franchise will never do well, but fans believe that the game will be one of the most anticipated games when it finally gets a launch date. However, the publisher has never hinted at any possible timeframe until now. Game Rant suggests before the game gets officially released, fans are encouraged to recall some important fragments of its lore.

"Kingdom hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue" reportedly includes a game that focuses on Aqua's journey. "Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth By Sleep - A Fragmentary Passage" is included in the PS4 game and functions as an epilogue to "Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep" and a prologue for "Kingdom Hearts III" as indicated by the game director Tetsuya Nomura. Fans claim it holds a lot of information that fleshes out the upcoming sequel. Readers please note that there might be spoilers ahead.

According to Kotaku, the story in "A Fragmentary Passage" follows a reportedly amnesiac Aqua as she attempts to recall her past. This part connects to ending of "Dream Drop Distance," wherein King Mickey indicates that he intentionally kept some information about her time in the Realm of Darkness. Meanwhile game begins with Riku and Kairi tasked to protect the Seven Pure Lights, which are the Disney princesses.

The game reveals that during the events where Sora and Riku attempted to close the portal between Dark and Light, in order to defeat the false Ansem, Mickey and Aqua were actually in the dark side of the doorway. After successfully sealing the passage she is left behind, but Riku and the king decided to go back and rescue her. Sora is later revealed to have failed his training as a Keyblade master and advised to seek a certain individual who has suffered the same loss.

The ending of "Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue" reportedly suggests that Riku, Mickey and Aqua will become the secondary team in "Kingdom Hearts III," While Sora continues his team up with Donald and Goofy.
