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.
