Just last month, Square Enix jumped aboard its money-making train with the release of Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD ReMIX. The compilation included HD remastered versions of Kingdom Hearts Final Mix, Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain Of Memories and the cutscenes from Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days. Now Square is bringing the rest of the convoluted saga to PS3 next year.
Square Enix announced this morning that Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX will be coming to the PS3 at some point in 2014. Like last month’s HD rerelease, this version will include versions of games that were never made available in the U.S. To be more specific, the latest compilation will include Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix, Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep Final Mix and the cutscenes from Kingdom Hearts Re:coded.
Here’s a debut trailer to remind you how terrible Roxas truly is:
Despite how incredibly ridiculous the franchise became with Kingdom Hearts II, this collection represents the best games in the franchise as far as gameplay is concerned. In particular, Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep is one of the greatest games to ever grace a handheld.
The release of Kingdom Hearts 2.5 HD ReMIX is apparently being used to celebrate the franchise crossing 20 million units sold worldwide to date. It’s also a great way to get caught up on any of the games you missed as we patiently wait to find out how much further Nomura can write himself into a corner with Kingdom Hearts III.
