Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX Coming to PS3 This Fall

Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD ReMIX

“Although my heart may be weak, it’s not alone. It’s grown with each new experience. And it’s found a home with all the friends I’ve made. I’ve become a part of their heart, just as they’ve become a part of mine… I don’t need a weapon. My friends are my power!”

Since this memorable speech, Sora’s dedication to his friends has shown across the series, and the magic of KINGDOM HEARTS continues to unite fans throughout the world. Ten years later and seven entries in, we have a new opportunity to replay the adventure that started it all in beautiful HD.

We’re proud to announce the upcoming release of KINGDOM HEARTS HD 1.5 ReMIX for North America! The young Sora wields the magical keyblade in search of his lost friends, making new ones with Disney’s Goofy and Donald along the way. The story continues through classic Disney stories like Aladdin, Hercules, Alice in Wonderland, Pinocchio, and The Nightmare Before Christmas. Utilizing RPG mechanics and gaining new exploratory powers throughout his adventure, Sora solidified himself as a starry-eyed hero that bridged Disney classics with a unique overarching story of friendship and courage. This classic hit comes in breathtaking HD with various gameplay enhancements, and is exclusively available for the first time on PlayStation 3 this fall.

Sora’s adventures took a dramatic turn with his journey into the mysterious Castle Oblivion in KINGDOM HEARTS Re:Chain of Memories. These events revealed some of the hidden intentions behind the shadowy Organization XIII. Their movements and the training of one notable character in the series, Roxas, are detailed even further in stunning HD visuals through the cinematic scenes of KINGDOM HEARTS 358/2 Days.

All of this is included with full Trophy support in one spectacular release. Plus, KINGDOM HEARTS HD 1.5 ReMIX includes the once-exclusive KINGDOM HEARTS FINAL MIX content, like new enemies, weapons, abilities, cutscenes, missions and more!

We can’t thank the fans enough (many of whom have asked us many times for this very game!) for all their support throughout the years, and we urge all of you to continue to follow news surrounding KINGDOM HEARTS on our official Twitter and Facebook. Relish this opportunity to replay the original and know again why without a doubt, the light, is KINGDOM HEARTS!

Seems like a long time to just change the resolution and textures on this game, unless if Square-Enix is probably currently developing a secret surprise if we get platinum or something.

    Much more was done to these than that, plus its 2 games and hours of video footage from a third, so don’t worry–we still have a few tricks up our sleeve.

If Konami can bring back Metal Gear Solid 2 and 3 HD to the Vita, why aren’t other companies doing the same. Vita has great potential for HD releases.

Robert,

Can you tell me what – if anything – is happening with Lord of Apocalypse? Game has been out in Japan for over a year and SE hasn’t given the Vita an ounce of support so far.

At least sell the publishing rights to someone else. I hate how SE sits on properties (Type-0) with that “if I can do it, no one can” attitude. It only breeds consumer apathy. For example, I won’t be purchasing this on account of Type-0 and LoA being released. I’ll support the publishers who support my interests.

But best of luck next-gen. The FF series overall is in decline and SE doesn’t have much else.

+ minameissteve on February 25th, 2013 at 6:12 am said:

Extremely excited for this. My nostalgia levels for this series are through the roof. :)

Couple of question:
Will this be available through PSN? (please don’t end up like Crisis Core and Birth by Sleep!
Will the original Japanese audio be available as an option? (rarely do we get this from Square, but it’s a highly requested feature)

Thanks!

Give me Dragon Quest VIII Remake or don’t bother.

+ UncannySilk on February 25th, 2013 at 6:13 am said:

Hey look at that, SE doing something completely stupid as usual by releasing a game in the worst release window ever.

Fall? Are you insane? KH is a noteworthy brand, but it will /die/ in the fall window. Just like Rayman will.

Still, I’m buying. I hope you don’t give KH an ‘indefinite hiatus’ if this sells poorly. You know how Re: Coded did, after all.

Seriously, though, while this news wasn’t totally unexpected, it’s great to finally have something in the way of a release timeframe and whatnot. Instabuy when it hits, that’s for sure!

I’m going to play this because Kingdom Hearts is one of my all time favorites, but what would really make me happy is KH3! Enough with the random unnecessary KH titles and give us 3 please.

This is news, but until fall? ugh >.< I'm already waiting on PS4 now KHs.

Hopefully this means we'll see other KH titles come to PSN. And just like RE Revelations is coming from 3DS to Console, i'd like to see something similar with KH3D. Pain in the butt to have multiple systems just to follow an amazing story :p.

+ tgpumpkin on February 25th, 2013 at 6:33 am said:

Kingdom Hearts needed a refocusing of direction and I hope this is just the start of that idea. With numerous games released that have been side stories or fleshing out of history the series has been moving sideways more than forward. I hope that this is a precursor to an eventual ‘real’ announcement of Kingdom Hearts 3.

I’ve always been surprised given the level of popularity this game has that it hasn’t gotten the true sequel care as other games have.

Either way, I’m excited. I’ll say ‘finally’ when I see 3 :)

YES! Finally Square-Enix USA and PlayStation USA are doing something smart!

1. Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD ReMix is coming to the US.
2. The Final Mix version of Kingdom Hearts is being used!

YESS!! That’s 1 game I’ll definitely be adding to my collection.

Now let’s hope for:

Kingdom Hearts 2.5 HD ReMix
– Kingdom Hearts 2 Final Mix
– Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep Final Mix
– Kingdom Hearts Re Coded CUT SCENE MODE

Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance on the PS3

Kingdom Hearts III on the PS3

I really hope it will come out as a digital copy as well. Only disc copies will turn some people back. I mean I know lots of people will buy it as disc but for those who went digital will find it really disappointing if it is only on disc … I know I will be disappointed since I stopped buying discs and went digital and i won’t find myself buying any games on discs anymore. I’m still waiting for SE to release FFXIII and FFXIII-2 digitally so I can play it T.T

I really wish SE will show digital games some love and release their games on PSN store

@jonjon0890
Yes. This game is a PS3 exclusive from what I’ve heard. Besides, there hasn’t been any Kingdom Hearts titles on the Xbox or the Xbox 360. Nintendo Wii U couldn’t handle so much epicness on its hardware. =P

@wvnative
Considering it’ll be out in the US this Fall, I would expect you’d be able to pre-order around the summer time.

Why can’t we get kingdom hearts birth by sleep on psn for psp/vita? It’s one of the most popular titles.

Not to mention the glaring issue of ff crisis core missing too.

Pls respond with anything

If this bothers other people too, copy and paste. If you want birth by sleep and crisis core, copy and paste this

2.5 (PS3)

KH Re: Coded Cutscenes
KH3D Playable

KH BBS Collection (Vita):
KH BBS FINAL MIX
KH BBS Volume 2 (New release)

KHIII (PS4)
