‘Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD Remix’ collection coming to PlayStation 3

KH HD1.5 thumb 300x188 Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD Remix collection coming to PlayStation 3Square Enix announced today that they will be releasing HD versions of Kingdom Hearts Final MixKingdom Hearts – Re: Chain of Memories, and cut scenes Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days together on the PlayStation 3. The collection, titled Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD Remix, will launch in Japan sometime in 2013.

Fans of the series will be quick to note that the collection’s odd name actually makes sense, as both Re: Chain of Memories and 358/2 Days take place between Kingdom Hearts and Kingdom Hearts 2. Interesting, neither Kingdom Hearts 2 nor Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep for the PSP will be in the collection, though it’s possible that Square Enix has a second collection in the works.

This collection will be a great way for newcomers to the series to experience the popular series from the beginning on current-gen consoles, but fan reactions appear mixed, as many were hoping for the Kingdom Hearts 3 announcement that never seems to come. Square Enix will likely have more information on Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD Remix at Tokyo Game Show over the following days. Hopefully we’ll hear news of this coming out in English in the near future, but considering it’s Kingdom Hearts, fans shouldn’t have much to worry about.
