Earlier today, SquareEnix announced that coming in 2014, Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMix will launch; compiling HD remakes of Kingdom Hearts 2, Birth by Sleep & Re:Coded. The first two will be the Final Mix versions of the games (previously only available in Japan) and the later a compilation of the cinematics in HD, a la the 365/2 Days remix that was in the previous HD release.
When they first announced the 1.5 edition, I was heartbroken that they weren’t releasing Kingdom Hearts 2 in HD, as that is easily the best of the series. Not only are we now getting that, but we are also getting access to easily one of the best of the spinoff games, Birth by Sleep, and probably also the most underplayed being as it was only available on PSP.
Here is to hoping we don’t have to wait too long to get our hands on these games, but if there is one thing I am used to doing when it comes to Kingdom Hearts games, it’s waiting to play them.
