Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX: Introducing the Magic Trailer

Kaori Takasue's Avatar Posted by Social Marketing Manager, Square Enix Japan Studios

Hello all! Have you ever had that feeling of wanting to share a game that’s really special to you with a best friend, and you can’t quite find the right words to communicate what’s so great about it, or why it has that certain charm? I know that I have friends who aren’t familiar with Kingdom Hearts just yet, and I’m always thinking about how I can make them see how magical the franchise is through the trailers we make and to help them get familiar with the deep, multi-game story behind Kingdom Hearts.

The “Introducing the Magic Trailer” is something we’ve put together to help. It perfectly describes how everything that happens in Kingdom Hearts is connected.

Or, if you’ve yet to play a Kingdom Hearts game or have no idea what it’s all about, then this is the perfect trailer for you too! This will help you get up to speed on the story, the characters, and the fun of Kingdom Hearts. Or if you haven’t played a Kingdom Hearts game in a while and need a quick refresher, we hope you enjoy.

No matter where you are with Kingdom Hearts, this trailer will take you on a journey through the stories included in Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX, and gets you reacquainted with your favorite friends and foes just in time for the release of Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX on December 2nd, 2014, exclusively on PS3.

The legacy of Kingdom Hearts continues with three magical journeys in one package in Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX:

  • Kingdom Hearts II FINAL MIX
  • Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep FINAL MIX
  • Kingdom Hearts Re:coded (HD remastered cinematic)

Is this coming to the Playstation Store too or just disc? Either way, I’m buying it.

Not even Nomura knows how his stories are connected.

    +BritisGolgo13, the mysteriousness is one of the charm points of the series. Nomura-san is a storyteller who continues to bring light into the Kingdom Hearts world. There’s so much to reveal in the series with its complexity and magic.

Can we expect Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX: to be Digital?

Clocktowe015 said:

October 8th, 6:21 am

Dear Square Enix, will Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX: be available on Playstation Store? or PSN?

madmanwithabox12 said:

October 8th, 6:22 am

Put these games on Vita like your fans have been asking for.

Clocktowe015 said:

October 8th, 6:27 am

I Know you said, Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 is exclusive to PS3 and for good reason, but since KH3 is coming to PS4,is their a chance you can port these PS3 games over to PS4 and Vita?

hmw_kamikaze said:

October 8th, 6:38 am

I’m on the fence about getting Kingdom Hearts for the Vita (free game this month for PS+).

I go on the store and see all of the DLC tied into it, and it just turns me off of the whole experience… Same thing for Drive Club… I don’t want half-games.

Trendy_Kid said:

October 8th, 6:49 am

PS4 or bust!

Rezolution77 said:

October 8th, 6:51 am

Love it.
But bought it a couple times already, and not wanting to pay full price……Again.

I paid $20 for Final Fantasy X, even though you decided to exclude CrossBuy, and not going to pay more for this one.
That is, if you bring it to Vita.

You can make those two things happen, you can be certain I will buy.

Xehanort is my favorite here and I can’t wait for the new HD collection of the Kingdom Hearts series. This is my most anticipated games of the year and one of the main reasons why I didn’t trade my PS3 for a PS4. Thank you for finally bringing this to the PS3. I deeply look forward to this.

Renan_Acid said:

October 8th, 7:21 am

@8: Ditto! I’d actually prefer to play these titles on the Vita than on the PS3.

Misframed said:

October 8th, 7:26 am

I hope they decide to bring the pair out for PS4. I played the first KH on the PS2 but never finished it. I don’t have a PS3.
If it comes to PS4, it will be mine!

I may actually pre-order this so I can play it on day 1! :O!!!

It’ll look really nice next to FFX HD and KH1.5 HD. Having said that, can you PS4 and Vita fanboys knock it off? The word exclusive means that, PS3 exclusive. Port begging is annoying.

    Kaori Takasue said:

    Hello +ChibiMrBubbles, cool name! Day 1 buy sounds awesome. The game has plenty of content to last you through the month.
    It’s ok, PS4 and Vita requests do come in all the time. :) No one gets upset here from the vocal fans. Thank you for your support!

Last game I’ll be buying on PS3 now that Persona 5 is also on PS4.

I only wish this was also on PS4 and/or Vita. Its a bit annoying to break out a last gen console for just one game

    Kaori Takasue said:

    October 8th, 8:19 pm

    +Mando44646, hi! Thank you :) It is a bit troublesome to break out that console but surely you have some favorite PS3 games that you can play while you are at it?! Appreciate your support!

    +tonydamiani… KH for life :) @3 and @35. 24 is perfect!!!
    You’ll be surprised as I started the series a bit older… I’ve met 16 year old fans that started this franchise at 4. Games that move you will never get old, I promise.

BlaqMagiq24 said:

October 8th, 7:28 pm

I’ll definitely be getting this game, but not Day 1. That is unless you change the preorder incentive to match what 1.5 had. It’s insulting what Limited Edition you’re giving us compared to Japan. Not even an artbook? Come on Square Enix. Step your game up.

    Kaori Takasue's Avatar

    Kaori Takasue said:

    October 8th, 8:38 pm

    Hi +BlaqMagiq, thanks for being vocal. That KH 1.5 book was pretty awesome. :) We are working to step our game up, trust me! Sometimes we do books, other times we do pins, but we’re constantly spinning our wheels to reach different audiences. Japan has some really cool Collector’s Editions that come with a price, but I believe the preorders that we do are unique to the states and are free. What do you suggest as a Kingdom Hearts pre-order incentive for Kingdom Hearts 3? An artbook?

alphagoku1 said:

October 8th, 8:41 pm

Would it be too much to ask about an update on the progress of KH3? I haven’t been able to get anything other than fan speculation and that video from like last year I think it was. Thanks :)

You know a game is just too good, when you have a R9 290X in a triple monitor setup running every game +60FPS, and you are still going to buy a ps3 just to be able to play it!

Like really! you have to love this game! I feel like crying of happines every time I see a trailer :´)

Probably buying a ps4 for when the third one comes out!!!

Keep´em coming!!!! *-*

Just wish they were available for the PS Vita T^T

Can we get some love to the Dragon Quest series? Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts are indeed epic series but DQ was awesome in of itself and remakes are few to none, ps3 and vita maybe the ps4 if you really want to be nice need some of the classics remade for them pleeaaaaasse

Tyrannikos said:

October 8th, 11:16 pm

Still super excited for this. I’ve played every KH game and I can still get extremely excited for this.

I saw another video on the KH Facebook page that showed the case for this game. It had a lot of white for the PS3 logo area, which is normally black. It looked great and, best of all, looked like it will match the 1.5 LE case. Is that going to be the case again here? Can anyone confirm? The game case had a PEGI rating, so I hope this isn’t only a EU thing. I’d love for my 2.5 case to match my 1.5 LE case!

    Kaori Takasue's Avatar

    Kaori Takasue said:

    October 9th, 1:06 pm

    Hi +Tyrannikos! Our PS3 logo area in the US is black, sorrry! We do have the same “Limited Edition” bar at the top AND, the height will match to your Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX box. This was a very conscious decision made by Mat Kishimoto, last year’s product manager who now works in London! :) They will line-up on the shelf nicely.

DarthDan97_ said:

October 9th, 2:25 am

Looking forward to this! I got halfway through KH2 on the ps2 and then I got stuck on a boss battle in the middle of the game.. :( But hopefully when I get it i’ll try my luck again! :)

October 9th, 1:37 pm

Do the data replica bosses in Kingdom Hearts 2 Final Mix all have English VA or still Japanesse VA? Since this is the first time Kingdom Hearts 2 Final Mix will be available in the west i would think that everything would be English translated including the bosses voice acting from Kingdom Hearts Re Chain Of Memories.

October 9th, 3:14 pm

By far my favorite series of all time. I am not going to go on about how much of a fan I am but I did name one of my children after one of the characters from KH2. So yea… I will be preordering it and playing it and letting my children play it.. and hopefully it will bring them as much joy as it has to me. I do wish it came with the same kind of items and 1.5 did but that will not stop me. I must say I don’t think it will look as nice on the book shelf as KH 1.5 does but none the less it will be there. I just hope the Roxas enjoys it as much as I do when he gets old enough to start playing.

    Kaori Takasue said:

    October 13th, 4:19 pm

    Hi +jnmcnicholas :) First off, naming your child “Roxas” is super awesome. Was the name inspired from Roxas being one of your favorite characters?! The Kingdom Hearts series has themes that are timeless. This is why it’s so nice to be able to share with your children. If you do love the book we hope to be bringing more of the artbooks down the line! :)

Tyrannikos said:

October 10th, 12:05 am

@Kaori Takasue
Thanks so much for getting back to me. I am very happy to hear that the game cases will match each other. That white PS3 logo area for Europe does look very nice, but I can easily pass it up. The most important part has been achieved already! Please give Mat Kishimoto my thanks for keeping this simple, but important detail in mind.

    Hi +Tyrannikos! Of course, it’s so nice that we can interact with all of the people who are so supportive!

We’ve been jotting down all of the requests so hopefully we get to deliver on some other suggestions and requests!!! Take care! :)

Skybound00 said:

October 10th, 9:10 am

I’m actually really excited for the Re: Coded scenes. I already knew the other games would be awesome but there are actually some epic looking fight scenes in Coded… But it makes me a little upset that we didn’t have any fight scenes like that in the 358/2 Days movie. Imagine how epic the Saix fight, Riku fight, and Xion fight could’ve been! Oh well. But still super hyped for this game! I’ve wanted KH2 final mix for so long!

    Hi +Skybound00! We were all excited ourselves cause there were scenes we have never seen ourselves! What was your favorite scene in 358/2 Days? There are so many scenarios we can come up with huh? We’re hyped to ship the game… less than 2 months away!

    Kaori Takasue said:

    October 13th, 7:42 pm

    +Ro-X-as_XIII, hello! What a cool name you got. Will you really buy a used PS3? Did you already play Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX? That is now part of the “Greatest Hits” collection so you can get it for $20! There are some really good games still on the PS3, so that would be a buy that you hopefully won’t regret. Thanks for supporting us!

PrinceofXIII said:

October 10th, 9:02 pm

While it’s disappointing about the Limited Editions, i really hope you make a PS4 version just in time for Kingdom Hearts III.

Also it’s a shame you guys didn’t put the Japanese audio which would have at least eased up the lack of LE.

    Kaori Takasue's Avatar

    Kaori Takasue said:

    October 13th, 7:48 pm

    +PrinceofXIII, hello. That’s a good point you got. Japanese audio is always a nice addition when bringing games out to the west. Regarding LE, we will continue to brainstorm on LE’s that can be enticing to the masses. Thank you.
