Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX Announced

In a move that shouldn’t shock anyone but will likely delight many, Square-Enix today announced via the PlayStation blog a follow-up to Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX – a game comprised of Kingdom Hearts Final Mix (a director’s cut of the original game, previously exclusive to Japan on the PS2), Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories (a PS2 remake of the original game made for the GBA) and cinematic scenes from the DS game Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days, all in glorious HD and with trophy support.
khii-hd-remixAs was pretty much expected when the first HD collection was announced, the follow-up – unsurprisingly titled Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX – will include Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix (previously exclusive to Japan on the PS2), Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep Final Mix (previously on the PSP and exclusive to Japan) and cinematic scenes from Kingdom Hearts Re:Coded (a DS remake of a Kingdom Hearts title previously exclusive to mobile platforms), again all in glorious HD with trophy support.

Seeing as Kingdom Hearts II is generally considered the fan favourite of the franchise, I imagine that fellow Kingdom Hearts fans will still be ecstatic by this announcement, even if it was expected. With the exception of Kingdom Hearts 3D Dream Drop Distance, all of the games are now compiled together which makes the problem of excessive spin-offs on multiple platforms less of an issue now in the lead-up to Kingdom Hearts III.
