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!

Finally the HD comes i been waiting for HD remaster for long time now, I own all the old games on PS1, PS2, and PSP. Will their be Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX or something with Kingdom Hearts 2: Final Mix+ as well as Kingdom Hearts: Re: Coded, Birth by Sleep, and maybe Dream Drop Distance all together?

If their is i would 100% buy the 2rd i saw it. I do hope you guys at Square Enix get started on making Kingdom Hearts 3 for PS4 then PS3. If you release HD 1.5 and HD 2.5 for PS3 then it would set the main stage for KH3 to be on PS4 and be alot easier to make for you guys. :)

Hope that Final Fantasy Versus 13 will be out for PS3 soon, if not then put it on the PS4 then. Or release two version of the game on both PS3 and PS4 would be cooler.

Hey, Square. Maybe you could convince Sony to release a backwards compatible PS4 SKU? lol you can’t blame me for trying. :P

Any idea on what would the next Kingdom Hearts collection would include? Also, I would love to see Birth by Sleep on the PSN store!

I like SquareEnix but I dont like Disney cartoons. If they would take out the cartoons I would play kingdom hearts. ” Mikey Mouse” I would be ashame to play it.

Finally!!! Now all we need is KH3 for PS4. BTW it would be nice to get KH:BBS on PS Vita! ;)

Hey Robert !

This is slightly off-topic but:

Is Tomb Raider also getting digital release on PSN Store next week ?

oh my gosh… I… I…. I think I’m going to cry… this is so beautiful… GOSH I WANT TO PRE-ORDER!!!!!!


+ TJF588 on February 25th, 2013 at 11:11 am said:

Ah, been waiting! Haven’t kept up on details, but I’m excited for…

– FINAL MIX content! Hope to see KHII’s in time (those Org. XIII battles!)

– Re:Chain’s cutscenes rendered in real-time instead of some DivX-rip quality. Seriously, that and Sora’s grown voice are what held it down for me.

– Witnessing Days in stunning detail! Played through that game twice, and have a save set at Roxas’s defection. Love all the events that happen from there (especially that proper final boss and its music!). Also liked Roxas’s level modification late-game. Hope these events are done justice without playability. (Srsly, the first multiplayer in Kingdom Hearts, as the elementally-ranging Organization, and it’s cut?!)

But, to chirp in with others, where’s Birth by Sleep and where’s Crisis Core on the PlayStation Store?
(If they get pipelined, may I suggest Final Mix for the former and the updated latter which allows for cutscene playback?)

I never played Kingdom Hearts before so I think this will be a good time to start!

can we get some news about KH3? I’m not trying to complain but i’ve heard more news about PS4 than i have for KH3.. can we assume KH3 is not coming out this generation but the next? but nonetheless awesome news about KH1.5

@154 Bicgoozgetten-69 – You should fear the shame of the overcomplicated convolutions brought into the series, particularly the muckery of the Organization. The Disney characters’ worst flaw is hearing Donald and Goofy spouting off all the time (“Ih gohd iht! Ih gohd iht!” from Donald’s say-&-spraw mouth). The worlds actually serve as a reflection on the main quest (most intriguingly for me so far’s been Halloween Town in Chain of Memories).

If it truly concerns you, Terra’s story in Birth by Sleep doesn’t mesh with the cutesy/funny characters much (unless you really wanna count Dr. Jumba or Experiment 626, who quite belie their bulgy appearances, despite not being too sinister). Aqua’s story’s not too bad about it, either. And Reverse/Rebirth in Re:Chain of Memories is almost exclusively villains.

I understand the fact that porting that PS2 game over to the PS3 in an all new coating is great and will bring in lots more profits (because of large userbase) than putting that out on the Vita.

I also understand that the Vita is a completely different system than the PS3, and it’s not like only flipping a switch to have a Vita version. It would probably take as much work to do for a way smaller market. I get that.

But the Vita, to me, seems like the PERFECT vehicle for these sort of ports or remakes. There’s so many classics out there I haven’t played, or finished, that these, priced right, would be an insta-buy for me. The Metal Gear Solid HD collection was the first game I bought for my Vita, even if I already played (to completion) MGS2 and 3.

The Vita gives me something my PS3 can’t, which is, the ability to play my games everywhere. To the point that I game more on my Vita now than on all my consoles and PC combined.


+ IzzyxGore on February 25th, 2013 at 11:31 am said:

A hd collection on ps3 … Does that mean kh3 will be on ps4, cause thats be a bother. And I bought a ps3 years ago hoping for kh3


+ Lewak13 on February 25th, 2013 at 11:42 am said:

One of the coolest parts of the PSP Final Fantasy re-releases was the ability to swap the Western X-as-Accept for the Eastern O-as-Accept in the options menu, and after having the chance to play an import copy of Re:CoM, the Western controls feel more awkward to control and tend to induce, uh, some raging on my part. xD;

It’s awesome to see KH HD make it stateside, and I realize there’s only so much you can do/add/you know when doing a translation so I wanted to ask– will swapping the X and O buttons be included as an option? It’d be really awesome if it could!

Hugs? :3


+ Kchow23 on February 25th, 2013 at 11:47 am said:

Could Birth by Sleep finally come to PSN, so we could play it on the PS Vita? New games for the PS Vita would be great also!


+ Hayterfan on February 25th, 2013 at 11:47 am said:

Wheres the guy that says “What no Kingdom Hearts” He does that in every post.
Anyway this is great to hear, now I can use the cash I was planning on using to import this for something else.

To the SE employee, why wasn’t Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep ever released on the PS store, Ive always assumed it had to do with getting some kind of approval from Disney to do a digital version or something like that


+ BlindMango on February 25th, 2013 at 11:48 am said:

PLEASE make it to where the trophy lists are SEPARATE! Meaning that the trophy list only loads for each game when you LAUNCH that specific title, please don’t make it the where when you load up the disc, all three trophy lists show up for me at 0%, I hate when trophy lists show up for titles I may not get around to or don’t intend to play. For example, I will launch and play and probably platinum Kingdom Hearts 1 but may not even touch Chain of Memories, I don’t want a 0% trophy list sitting there for a title I never launched.

Jack and Daxter HD remake does a good job at only opening the trophy lists when you launch the specific title.

I have a quick question Robert; Will there be any collector editions? If so, I will be getting it. Either way I am so happy this is getting released for NA! :)

Smart on $enix is part as the eventuality of something original being produced this gen or even next with regards to an RPG is like hitting a space ship with a sling shot so please guys invest in RE making popular games such as FF6, Xenogears for example not the power puff, girl power, cuddly hugs kisses cookies and moogles we have been getting THX laddies.

You said earlier that each game has separate trophy lists. Does that mean each game has it’s own platinum as well? Inquiring minds want to know! ^_^

Since we’re finally getting a Kingdom Hearts game on the PS3, can we expect to finally see some Kingdom Hearts avatars on the PS Store as well? I’m sure I can’t be the only person who’d love to have some.

This is awesome and can’t wait to get it but why not include Kingdom Hearts 2 remastered in this collection? Or are there plans to release KH2 separately? Are there any plans to work on KH3, like perhaps for the PS4?


+ antimatter98 on February 25th, 2013 at 1:52 pm said:

I’m pre-ordering this the first day it’s made available. Then once I get it, I’m going to play the crap out of this collection until Kingdom Hearts 2.5 HD ReMix comes out. Will it get a digital release as well? Will it also be made available for the PlayStation Vita too? I really want a game for it worth playing, and this game will be another reason to keep my Vita.
