Kingdom Hearts 2.5 HD - Trailer

Awhile back Square-Enix announced that Kingdom Hearts Final Mix, and Kingdom Heats Re: Chain of Memories would be released on the PlayStation 3 in HD. This mini collection of games became known as "Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD Remix," and it also ended up including a "movie" version of the Nintendo DS game "Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days" as well. This collection was not only the first time fans of the series got to play Kingdom Hearts in HD with updated controls, it was also the first time that Kingdom Hearts FM ever hit western shores. It was a major release for long time fans, but truthfully it was only just the beginning.

Not too long after Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD was announced, Square-Enix also went on to announce a Kingdom Hearts 2.5 HD Remix. Although at the time not much information was known, most fans expected it to include Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix +, as well as Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep Final Mix HD. Well, today Square finally made it very clear on what we will be getting in the next collection, and they even released a trailer to go along with it!

Just as fans had speculated, the 2.5 HD collection will in fact feature Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix +, it will include Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep Final Mix (which just like KHII FM+, it was never released in the west), and it will also include a cutscene/movie version of the DS game "Kingdom Hearts Re: Coded." For the first time in Kingdom Hearts history, fans in the west will finally be able to experience what they missed out on by not being able to play the Final Mix versions of both KHII and BBS, and PlayStation gamers will finally get to experience the story of Re: Coded as well. On top of that, the bundle may have a connection to Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD Remix as well. Originally Re: Chain of Memories was included as a second disc in the Kingdom Hearts II FM+ package, and it also linked up with FM+ to provide extra boss battles. Rather or not if this feature will make it over to the HD collection is yet to be seen, but the chances are high. Especially since Kingdom Hearts Re: Chain of Memories HD does in fact save to its own file.
