Apparently Square Enix was listening to fans that begged for a next-gen remaster of the Kingdom Hearts collection.
At Paris Games Week, Square Enix and Disney revealed Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 ReMix, which is an HD remastered compilation of six adventures from the beloved Kingdom Hearts series. This is a perfect chance for fans and newcomers alike to experience almost the entire collection prior to the release of Kingdom Hearts 3 (although we still don’t have a timeframe for that). We also have Kingdom Hearts 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue HD, which is a successor to Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMix and includes Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance HD, Kingdom Hearts 0.2: Birth by Sleep – A Fragmentary Passage, and Kingdom Hearts χ Back Cover, to look forward to on January 24, 2017.
The progression of Kingdom Hearts so far has been a bit confusing if you haven’t followed it closely, so hopefully this will simplify things for those looking to get caught up prior to Kingdom Hearts 3. The full list of the titles included in the compilation is as follows:
KINGDOM HEARTS HD 1.5 ReMIX
KINGDOM HEARTS FINAL MIX
KINGDOM HEARTS Re:Chain of Memories
KINGDOM HEARTS 358/2 Days (HD remastered cinematics)
KINGDOM HEARTS HD 2.5 ReMIX
KINGDOM HEARTS II FINAL MIX
KINGDOM HEARTS Birth by Sleep FINAL MIX
KINGDOM HEARTS Re:coded
Both collections were previously released for PlayStation 3 in 2013 and 2014, respectively.
Kingdom Hearts 1.5 + 2.5 ReMIX is set to launch on the PlayStation 4 on March 28, 2017.
