Famitsu Weekly has just released, featuring a 2-page spread on Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue, with special emphasis on Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth by Sleep -A Fragmentary Passage-.
Eight screenshots are featured in this spread, including some which were previously revealed by Weekly Shōnen Jump, the Kingdom Hearts 0.2 BbS AFP opening cinematics, and the Famitsu's Twitter account. Two new screenshots show gameplay of Aqua wandering in the Enchanted Dominion section of the Dark World, with her surroundings full of thorns. One of these screenshots features a Darkside waiting ahead. The screenshot featuring Ven shows a much clearer color difference from his original outfit.
A previously revealed render of Aqua is also available, along with a new render of King Mickey Mouse holding Starseeker.
The article also mentions the Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 ReMIX PS4 collection.

As Aqua's hand neared Terra and Ventus, a large thorn stopped her. The way the world continued to change made it seem like it had its own intentions.
