Bear with us on this one, Square Enix has announced yet ANOTHER Kingdom Hearts rerelease, though in all fairness, this is the one people have really been waiting for all along.
On March 28, 2017, exactly 15 years from the release of the first game on PlayStation 2, Square Enix will release Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 Remix for PlayStation 4.
Disney and Square Enix made the announcement today during Paris Games Week. The collection will include every game that was in the 1.5 ReMIX, as well as the 2.5 ReMIX. The full list can be seen below.
- Kingdom Hearts Final Mix
- Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories
- Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days
- Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix
- Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep Final Mix
- Kingdom Hearts Re:coded
The collection leaves a couple of games off the list, like Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance, though it does include all of the series most important entries like 1, 2, and Chain of Memories.
Interestingly enough, Square Enix still plans on releasing Kingdom Hearts HD II.8 — Final Prologue on January 28, 2017, despite the fact that this newly announced collection will include most of the games in Final Prologue and more.
Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 Remix will be the first time the series staples will be available all together for current generation hardware. If you haven’t played an entry in the series before, this would be the perfect place to pick up. The game is available for pre-order now on Amazon for $50.
All remakes aside, Square Enix is still developing the highly anticipated Kingdom Hearts 3, which will release on PS4 and Xbox One sometime in the future.
Seriously though, no more remakes after this one.
