Kingdom Hearts III may not be arriving anytime soon, but at least now you can enjoy not one, not two, not three, but a whopping six other Kingdom Hearts games on just one console!
Square Enix has just announced that Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX and Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX will be coming to the PS4 this 2017. That’s exactly 15 years after the very first game dropped on the PS2 and created a franchise of its own. Both compilations were originally exclusive to the PS3.
Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX
Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX contains the following titles:
- Kingdom Hearts Final Mix – The game that started it all. Now you can watch *SPOILER ALERT* Sora’s sacrifice all over again, but this time in even higher resolution. Pack your tissues, gentlemen.
- Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories – Probably the oddball of the entire franchise, courtesy of its card-based combat system. The game bridges the events between the two main games and serves as the debut of Castle Oblivion.
- Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days – Originally for the Nintendo DS, the game’s timeline takes place in…well, it’s a complicated story, so let’s not talk about that. It also goes by the alternative unofficial title Kingdom Hearts: 358 Reasons Why Roxas Is More Badass Than Sora.
Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX
Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX has the following titles:
- Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix – Hopefully, you still have some tissues left from your Kingdom Hearts Final Mix Because this game has even more of those tear-jerking moments.
- Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep Final Mix – The game serves as a prequel and takes place a decade before the events of the first game. Sora and Riku are still little tykes in the game, so you’ll have to make do with the trio of Ventus, Aqua, and Terra as your main characters.
- Kingdom Hearts Re:coded – Aside from Jiminy Cricket getting more screen time than usual, there’s not much new to the game. But if you still haven’t had your fill of Keyblade action after approximately 294 hours of playing time in the five games above, then by all means go for more.
The two-in-one bundle will arrive on March 28, 2017 in North America and March 31, 2017 in Europe. Kingdom Hearts III, which will also be available for the PS4 (and the Xbox One), still has no official release date. The gameplay trailers we’ve been seeing looks promising, though.
Lastly, Square Enix also released the opening movie of Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue, which is similarly set for a PS4 release on January 24, 2017.
