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!

Robert, thanks for answering.

I know you can send word around Square Enix so please make our displeasure known.

How hard can it be for the guys there to put a file up on the PSN store? They have other PSP and PSone titles up there so I’m not seeing the difficulty.

I also don’t see how you can have two of your most popular titles missing from the store.

I mean come on bro, if tech savvy people can get these games up and running on emulators, how difficult would it be to get it up and running on Vita/PSP via PSN??

Quick question: Just curious why the localization is taking so long considering most of the localization was already done and the only thing new is the Remix content and the 358/2 Days content? Because Fall is kinda close to the release of the PS4 isn’t it?
Thanks.

@41 and @48 It would make more sense the way Mako Soldier said story wise but honestly they’re better off doing KH HD 2 with Re:Coded and Dream Drop Distance on just cutscene mode. I bought a 3DS to play it and although it was a good game gameplay wise there wasn’t enough story. It be easier for them just to show the important parts.

When I seen the cover image on Facebook saying “Coming Fall 2013″, I thought they meant KH3 and I got really excited. But this is cool too. I can finally let my PS2 rest in peace.

But… is KH3 ever going to happen? Just a yes or no?

    That’s partly why this collection exists. You can play the original, the direct follow up, and the story of Roxas during the same period all in one release for PlayStation 3.

Happy about the release of Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD – I have really been anticipating it!
However I’m really fearful about the release date, since the PS4 is announced for ‘Holiday 2013′, and there’s been no mention of Backwards compatibility (which I’d quite happily pay extra for).
Is there any mention of playing this game on the PS4 yet and if so, will it only then be available on the console through the PSN?

+ Ryumoau on February 25th, 2013 at 7:24 am said:

Its great that you guys are bringing these games to the west, but please don’t make the mistake off Overpricing the collection like Square has been doing for IOS games and the psp port of a DS remake (FF3).

It should not cost more than $39.99 at most. There are other HD collections with more games in them that cost less than that.

I waited 7 years for a Kingdom Hearts to return to a home console. As a fan I’m way too happy that I can relive my childhood game as an Adult. But once KH3 comes out which i believe is the end of the Xehanort Saga. I can finally move on from this series knowing it had an END TO IT. When they introduced the new saga if they ever come out with one to my future childrens.

+ Karlobsterrific on February 25th, 2013 at 7:34 am said:

Kingdom Hearts is the main reason why I still continue gaming up to this day. Ever since I saw the trailer in one of the demo discs of the PS2 I was immediately enthralled. I’ve bought every KH game, bought a 3DS just for KH, played 358/2 Days and BBS to death. With the release of this collection, I see we’re one step closer to the end of the KH franchise (Well at least the Xehanort Saga).

I bought a PS3 in hopes of playing Kingdom Hearts 3. The moment KH3 finally comes out is the time I’ll probably taper off my gaming habits. It is THE franchise that defines my gaming life. You sir Robert Peeler made my day with this announcement. Hope for more juicy KH info soon!

@ Robert Peeler

Will there be dual-audio support?

Since it will be released next month in Japan, if the NA version doesn’t have dual-audio, I can save a bunch of months waiting by importing it.

I don’t want to step on toes but feedback is feedback whether it’s here or on the games official forums.

I was so utterly disappointed with Dream Drop Distance that I sold my 3DS.

This being said, Birth By Sleep is probably the best game as far as the combat. I know this game is pretty much done and I’ve read of battle system enchantments, but what can we expect? Did they rip out the old ones in replace with the new or did they just tighten them up?

Also we need Vita love. Like for real, make that a real consideration please. If it is as easy as they say it is then make that happen. I’d rather play this on my Vita than on my PS3. I’ve played all these so I don’t need the home console feeling again.

@86 god, what is with you annoying weeaboos and your pettiness with languages? Importing the game just because it doesn’t offer japanese language is not only stupid but a major slap in the face to the amazing localization efforts Square put into the first two KH games.
They even got some of the original voice casts from the Disney films to return. Not too mention Hopefully they are keeping Billy Zane’s amazing voice acting for Ansem in KH1.

One question about the trophy support… It will have two trophy lists? (One for KH1 and one for KH Re:COM?) or they will share only one trophy list? HD Collections these days had multiple trophy lists, one for each game (Hitman, PoP, GoW, Sly, Ratchet, TR…), just sayin ;)
