We knew it was coming but that doesn’t make the announcement any less exciting!
Square Enix’s Mat Kishimoto posted on the PlayStation Blog that Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX will have a global launch on the PlayStation 3 next year. Following up on the events (and financial success) of the first compilation, this version includes Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix, Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep Final Mix and King Hearts Re:coded. Seeing how the first title was exclusive to Japan while the second was only on the PSP, this is pretty much an open invitation for fans or newcomers to fill any gaps in their Kingdom Hearts experience.
No other details accompanied the announcement but you can be sure there’ll be limited editions coming out for it, most likely in the form of another art book. If nothing else, this serves as a good build-up towards Kingdom Hearts III for the PS4.
