Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX Rekindles Your Love of Disney Next Year

Posted by Sammy Barker

Series surpasses 20 million sales

The build up to Kingdom Hearts III will continue exclusively on the PlayStation 3 next year, as Square Enix has officially acknowledged its worst kept secret: Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX. The compilation – which follows in the footsteps of last month’s Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX – will collate the second game in the series, alongside PlayStation Portable favourite Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep and the cinematics from Nintendo DS title Kingdom Hearts Re:coded.

Purchasing the package will reward you with the Final Mix iterations of the aforementioned playable titles, both of which were previously only released in Japan. As with its predecessor, everything has been re-mastered in glorious high-definition, meaning that you can expect Mickey Mouse and crew to look the part on your widescreen display. You can catch a taste of the Japanese publisher’s work so far courtesy of the trailer embedded below.

In unrelated news, the adorable franchise has now sold more than 20 million units worldwide – a number that’s only likely to increase with the compilation in question and the upcoming PlayStation 4 sequel. Are you willing to replay the above mentioned entries in the series? Do your best Donald Duck impression in the comments section below.

This is the one I've been wanting, KH2 is my fave of the series and I never got to play Birth By Sleep (WHY NO PSN RELEASE???). I need to finish 1.5 though, I'm only through maybe half of KH1!

I love Kingdom Hearts :) I preferred KH1 to the 2nd one but 2 is still an awesome game....and Kingdom Hearts 3 is the game most likely to get me to purchase a PS4 quicker than I was planning to. If I had a key blade I'd be holding it aloft in a generally triumphant manner :p

why are they only putting in cinematics for the DS games instead of the whole game?

@JaredJ Well for 358/2 Days, also on DS, it was mentioned that remaking the game would delay the collection's release by quite a bit, probably because lots of features would need to be reworked.

@Shellybird27 I was hoping they would, but i gotta say i liked BBS more than KH 3D, but they both were great games.

I wonder if it will be multiplayer like the PSP version. thatd be better with it on PS3.
