Square Enix Unlocks Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX Limited Edition on PS3

Company used a Keyblade

You didn’t think that upcoming compilation Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX was going to release without some kind of collector’s edition, did you? Just like the Genie out of Aladdin’s lamp, Square Enix has helped all of your dreams come true, by confirming that all copies of the forthcoming collection will come with a pin badge featuring Mickey Mouse and Sora.

This isn’t just any old brooch, though – it’s a real classy one. “We’ve looked at every curvature of the pin from the expressions of the characters to the Keyblade with the Mickey Dangler,” product manger Kaori Takasue wrote on the PlayStation Blog. “The pin badge is made out of a soft enamel coating on metal and at its height it stretches out to 1.68”.” That’s, er, 4.27cm by the way.

The good news is that you won’t have to do anything special to grab the gift – just pre-order the game and you should net the pin. For those out of the loop, the title includes Kingdom Hearts II, Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep, and the cinematics from Nintendo DS release Kingdom Hearts: Re:coded. The package will battle its way onto store shelves in December.

Only going to get 1.5 and 2.5 if they either put KH3 on PS3 or put 1.5 and 2.5 on PS4. Other than that, it would be a waste for me. No need for me to buy two consoles.

@CanisWolfred No mate, you only need to pre-order if you want the limited edition bonuses.

If you just buy the "Standard Edition" (which won't become available until December 02), you'll still get the Final Mixes.

@ToddlerNaruto I know, but what disappoints me the most is Sony's lack of backwards compatibility on the Vita and PS4. I was going to get these KH collections with a PS4, but now I am just going to either wait for some BC to be patched in or wait for KH3 before getting a PS4. I still am not that interested in most of Sony's first party offerings, except for Infamous (which I can get on the PS4 now), but $250 is a bit to high for me at the moment for a system that I know I will only want 2-5 games on. It is not to bash Sony's first party games by any means, but they just are not the reason I ever owned a Sony console.

So this won't be a book style case like 1.5??? why can't companies make their packaging consistent.

@ToddlerNaruto Thanks, I'll look into them. Do you think the PS3 would be getting a price drop some time soon? It is still a bit high for an old console, imo. I mean, I got a Wii for $80 right before I got a Wii U, so I was hoping I could get one around $100-150, preferably one that can play PS2 games (if they even have those anymore).

@eaglebob345 Mind you, $250 is just the "brand new" PS3 price. I'm sure you could find a PS3 for around $200 used or cheaper.

Do not buy the $200 12GB PS3 though, 12GB is like 3-5 games max. You'll want the 160GB/320 GB Slim or 250GB/500GB Super Slim.

@CanisWolfred Trust me, the only thing you'll miss with the limited edition is that pin.

Which I honestly don't care about, so I'll be ordering the Standard Edition myself.
