The Square Enix Disney Collaboration returns with both 'Chain of Memories' and '358/2 Days' Content
Both fans and strangers to the 'Kingdom Hearts' series have been hoping and awaiting a HD re-release of the very first 'Kingdom Hearts' title, and Square Enix is now ready to deliver. The PS2 title, which combines elements of the 'Final Fantasy' series with Disney characters in an action role-playing game, is widely popular in Japan and has a large cult following around the world, which has lead to several sequels.
'Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX' is no mere HD re-release, however, as it adds in elements from other games into the series, most notably 'Chain of Memories.' Originally a Game Boy Advance title, 'Chain of Memories' was remade into a PS2 title, 'Kingdom Hearts: Re: Chain of Memories,' and is a direct sequel to the first game. 'Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX' includes an HD and Trophy-enabled version of both 'Kingdom Hearts' and 'Re: Chain of Memories' with added content for 'Kingdom Hearts' from the once-exclusive 'KINGDOM HEARTS FINAL MIX.' In addition, HD cutscenes, from the DS title 'Kingdom Hearts: 358/2 Days' will be included in this new PS3 title.
'Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX' is expected for release this fall in North America and Europe.
