Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX on PS3

Ready for Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX? In very limited quantities, those who pre-order the game will receive a limited edition artbook at launch!

Now, this isn’t your traditional video game artbook. First off, the artwork will feature your favorite characters in the history of anything – Sora, Riku, Donald Duck, Goofy, other iconic Disney characters, and much more.

This book has everything you could want — from early sketches, to character renders, to final pieces of artwork that never made its way to North America (from famed Director Nomura Tetsuya).

You won’t have to wait much longer to play Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX — it comes exclusively to PS3 on September 10th, 2013.

High fives all around, am I right? If you just started paying attention right now, here’s the skinny — preorder Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX at any participating retailer, and get a limited edition artbook containing fantastic Kingdom Hearts artwork. The game comes out on September 10th, 2013 in North America for $39.99, exclusively on PS3. Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX is a collection of HD remastered versions of Kingdom Hearts 1 FINAL MIX, Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories and HD cinematics from Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days. Of course, we can’t forget that this game contains PS3 Trophies.

Even though the series took a turn I did not like in entries past the first game I have to get this. Kingdom Hearts 1 still holds a special place in my heart so this will be a day 1 purchase for me.


+ MakoSOLIDER on May 7th, 2013 at 5:47 am said:

Will it be available on PSN as well? Can we get the soundtrack as a bonus too please!? Art book looks awesome but I’m prob going to buy the game digitally and it would be nice to get something out of that. Regarding trophies: Will the set for Days have a platinum? How do u earn trophies for Days? Watching the cut-scenes? QTE cut-scenes would have been awesome lol.

    Yes! This preorder incentive is available through all participating retailers such as GameStop, Wal-Mart, and Target to name a few.


+ QuantumMercury on May 7th, 2013 at 5:49 am said:

This was such an awesome series, unfortunate they never continued on with a PS3 version. Glad to hear bonuses for pre orders though.


+ Nck90 on May 7th, 2013 at 5:51 am said:

why not Kingdom Hearts 2 ? or is this gonna be we will release it later for another 40 bucks … I dont mind HD remakes of games.. but I dont like when they charge the same price now as I bought them for 10 years ago..


+ MakoSOLIDER on May 7th, 2013 at 5:51 am said:

Does SQUARE ENIX have any of intention of supporting the Vita through a KH game or FINAL FANTASY game in the future?
Allow me to address everyone’s wants: KHBBS HD on (Vita/PSN), a new KH game for Vita, Crisis Core HD (PSN/Vita), and bringing Type-0 to the west on Vita as an HD remaster. Or….at least put all the old games on PSN…


+ IIL0YDII on May 7th, 2013 at 5:52 am said:

Not going to support this, it could have been HD Collection with all PS2 Kingdom Hearts titles, instead we get 1 HD upscaled game for what price? $40?$50?


+ MakoSOLIDER on May 7th, 2013 at 5:53 am said:

Wait the game is out September 10th? BIRTHDAY PRESENT!


+ Morac_ on May 7th, 2013 at 5:54 am said:

The picture above says the release date is September 10th. Amazon says December 31. Which is it?


+ IIL0YDII on May 7th, 2013 at 5:54 am said:

And not even mention that it easily could support PS Vita, you know the platform that Sony need to support right now because of low sales, not exclusively on PS3 which doing pretty well in sales.


+ Tidusfanboy on May 7th, 2013 at 5:57 am said:

Well there goes my September. Being sunk into hours upon hours of KH fun! :) Can’t wait!


+ MakoSOLIDER on May 7th, 2013 at 5:59 am said:

Also nice to see that the boxart is the same as the JP one. Awesome boxart!


+ DannyX13 on May 7th, 2013 at 6:02 am said:

Hooray for Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD news. We got the release date for it but what about Final Fantasy X HD release date?


+ big_drunkbrother on May 7th, 2013 at 6:04 am said:

If I order it from will I still get the Artbook? Or it it only available via


+ IrishDude2 on May 7th, 2013 at 6:04 am said:

Would love for this game to be on PS Vita. Would be much better as a cross buy. So excited to get this. I missed out on it on PS2 and this is my chance to finally get into it. Hope your considering doing this for PS Vita and making both this and Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD a cross buy. Am sure many wouldn’t buy the same game twice but in the cross buy could do a nice big discount on the Vita version (perhaps take off 99% from the price ;) lol. joke more like 75%)


+ Elvick_ on May 7th, 2013 at 6:06 am said:

Will EB Games get the art book? Or Canada in general? I would die if I missed out on it. D:

Also, I really wish this were for PS Vita as well. Having the original Kingdom Hearts to play, anywhere, is a dream of mine. As I’m sure many KH fans.


+ snakeeyes211 on May 7th, 2013 at 6:15 am said:

Awesome :-)


+ snakeeyes211 on May 7th, 2013 at 6:17 am said:

I never played Kingdom hearts so this is going to be a real treat for me :-D


+ Uriel_Itachi on May 7th, 2013 at 6:17 am said:

Nice, is good to finally know the US launch date. I’ve been playing the Japaneses Version non-stop trying to get KH1 Platinum. I can’t wait to get the English version, to be able to fully enjoy the game with out looking at a dictionary every few minutes. For those wondering if they did a good job with the remastered, the answer is yes, Square Enix did a very awesome job. From fully surround sound, to refine textures, and of course bringing the Final Mix version of KH1 which adds new content to the game. (Final Mix never was released outside Japan) This is a must buy for fans and new to Kingdom Hearts.

PS: Also the camera in KH is a lot better, just make sure to turn off the Auto Camera and you’ll enjoy it even more.


+ Trioptical on May 7th, 2013 at 6:18 am said:

So, I’ve been wondering this since the last trailer was released, but is this collection two games or three games? The assumption has been three games from all the press coverage, but “…and HD cinematics from Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days” suggests that there are only two games and then the story part of 358/2 Days.

Anyone know?


+ Excalibur0123 on May 7th, 2013 at 6:20 am said:


Thanks you so much I have been checking everyday for this, now I get to play my favorite franchise again (and finally beat Chain of Memories {CURSE YOU FINAL BOSS!!} and watch 358/2 Days) . All I need now is for the next collection and KH3 and my life will be made.

Also what is so special about Final Mix? I’ve heard of it but, does it add new story or is it just bosses and such?

    + Mathew Kishimoto on May 7th, 2013 at 6:27 am said:

    The Final Mix version of the original KINGDOM HEARTS contains a long list of additional features that were never released in the US. Those features include a handful of the following and much, MUCH more – camera control changed from shoulder buttons to right analog stick, button remapping, new heartless, new abilities, new items, new synthesis ingredients/recipes, new cutscenes, as well as the inclusion of Gummi Ship missions!


+ killersense on May 7th, 2013 at 6:20 am said:

will there be a kingdom hearts 3 in the future? birth by sleep on vita?


+ ItaChu on May 7th, 2013 at 6:22 am said:

how much does supplies are limited translate to in numbers…. keep making more …. :P i need that book :)


+ ItaChu on May 7th, 2013 at 6:22 am said:

oh wait its an amazon thing only? :(


+ Vunajan on May 7th, 2013 at 6:27 am said:

could you give us the japanese voices, too?
or at least put them on the store or something,

if not I’ll probably buy the JP one instead


+ Im-Xero on May 7th, 2013 at 6:28 am said:

Very cool. I ordered the Japanese version because I didn’t want to wait. Can’t wait to get II.5 and play my favorite Kingdom Hearts game in HD with Trophy support!

We’ve all been waiting for Kingdom Hearts on the PS3. It may not be Kingdom Hearts III, but I’m sure that we’ll see that on PS4.


+ VdeVenancio on May 7th, 2013 at 6:28 am said:

Any word about a Day 1 Digital release?

Also, Kingdom Hearts should really show some love for the Vita. It’s like they were made for each other!


+ mrRandOm1234 on May 7th, 2013 at 6:28 am said:

@6 Well sure, you’re paying the same price as it was when released, but you’re also getting much more content, so you’re getting more bang for your buck technically


+ Uriel_Itachi on May 7th, 2013 at 6:30 am said:

+ Trioptical
Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days is just a very long movie with a few read-on’s now and then. It has a Journal to read with a few extra information about the Organization and story of Kingdom Hearts.

This collection only has 2 games and a long movie (it’s actually cut-scenes snipped together and sometimes stuff to read between chapters/days)


+ TheSporkWithin on May 7th, 2013 at 6:32 am said:

Oh man. I’m so excited, I can’t wait to replay these games again. I had actually started playing my disc copy in an emulator for upscaled resolution, but stopped the day this was announced. I seriously can’t wait.


+ PhantomRoxas on May 7th, 2013 at 6:34 am said:

Will Best Buy also be offering this?


+ WilHiteWarrior on May 7th, 2013 at 6:38 am said:

So I’m guessing there will be another HD collection with Kingdom Hearts II and Birth By Sleep on it?


+ DexterP17 on May 7th, 2013 at 6:42 am said:

Can’t wait. I’m going to go ahead and pre-order this today!


+ babyboydevil86 on May 7th, 2013 at 6:54 am said:

Will buy 9 days after release will be my bday :P I have such great memories from kingdom hearts so in all honest SE shut up and take my damn money.
on a side not Sony should be pushing to have more of the remakes ported to the Vita as well cause lets be honest if cant be that hard to do.


+ AwRy108 on May 7th, 2013 at 6:58 am said:

Such an odd collection–why leave out so many of the other KH titles, especially the superior one? Whole thing smells like a ploy to sell them to us later. Pass.


+ FearMonkey on May 7th, 2013 at 6:58 am said:

I’ve had it pre-ordered since it was first announced. Can’t wait! ^_^

I am curious why it took so long to localize though given that most of this content has already been localized.


+ BlaqMagiq24 on May 7th, 2013 at 7:04 am said:

And THAT was the incentive I needed to preorder. Can’t wait to get my hands on the collection and that art book.


+ Mando44646 on May 7th, 2013 at 7:04 am said:

I really wish this was also released on Vita like FFX will be. Please have Square make that happen.

Regardless, I am very excited for KH


+ kipper_m on May 7th, 2013 at 7:10 am said:

Any plans to make this available on the psn store?


+ D-Squad3 on May 7th, 2013 at 7:15 am said:

Square Enix could’ve put ALL KH games on one blu ray disc. This is ridiculous.


+ GStylez1980 on May 7th, 2013 at 7:19 am said:

Going into this year, I had never played an RPG game. I just couldn’t get past the typical RPG tropes, like elves and wizards and fairies, to give them a chance. And then I played Persona 4 Golden for VITA…and absolutely loved it! I’m currently playing Persona 3 Portable and also enjoying it. Now that I discovered that I can actually get into RPGs, I interested in going back and playing some classics that I probably have missed. The Kindgdom Hearts series is definitely at the top of my list. My question though is, how does the battle system in KH work? Is it similar to Persona’s, which I absolutely fell in love with? Are there other games for Vita or PS3 (or PS2 Classics) that have similar systems to Persona? Would I enjoy the Final Fantasy games if I enjoyed P4G (planning on trying FFX HD when it’s released later this year)? Can’t wait to hear some opinions from other bloggers. Thanks!


+ Archaga on May 7th, 2013 at 7:19 am said:

Hopefully they go a la MGS and eventually release 1&2 packaged together, and with some hope, for the Vita as well.


+ Elvick_ on May 7th, 2013 at 7:19 am said:

@41: Yeah, name a Collection that has six games in it. Name it. Oh right. There are none.


+ OtakuJubo on May 7th, 2013 at 7:21 am said:

Does the artbook also available to Canadian retailers?


+ RPGCrazied on May 7th, 2013 at 7:23 am said:

Holy crap. So close to Tales of Xillia. August/September is going to be so much gaming from me. Where do I preorder for dat artbook? I must have it.

Day -0

And they are keeping the Japanese cover!!! Yay!


+ Gorvi on May 7th, 2013 at 7:24 am said:

I would absolutely love to see a Vita release of this as well, similar to what you guys are doing with the HD releases of Final Fantasy X/X-2. Is there any chance of that happening?


+ ps_n_blog_ac on May 7th, 2013 at 7:25 am said:

Right on my birthday :)


1) i already pre-ordered my copy awhile back. will i automatically be able to get the art book?

2) any chance will Sora appear in PS-All stars?

3) any news on a digital or PS4 version?

    It depends on where you preordered the game from, but if you did preorder from a participating retailer, then yes! You will automatically be upgraded :D

    Unfortunately, I’m unable to comment on your other questions at this time.
