The official website for Square Enix’s series Kingdom Hearts has just released images and information detailing the release date of the upcoming game, Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix. The game is a HD compilation of three Kingdom Hearts games: Kingdom Hearts Final Mix, Kingdom Hearts Re: Chain of Memories and Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days. The HD collection is only available for the PlayStation 3 and will release in Japan on the 14th of March.
The Kingdom Hearts series (the majority of it) follows a young boy’s adventure to rescue his friends by travelling to various worlds and saving them from eternal darkness. The series is noted for its complicated plot as well as integrating Disney characters, Final Fantasy characters and original characters together. The games are directed by Tetsuya Nomura- who also design the characters- and feature a real time Action-RPG battle system.
Kingdom Hearts is the first in the franchise, followed by Chain of Memories which was released on the Game Boy Advance with a full 3D PS2 port with Kingdom Hearts Final Mix. Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days was released on the DS after Kingdom Hearts 2. The Final Mix brand of games are only ever released in Japan and feature more content than the original release- more monsters, harder difficulty, more collectibles, bosses and a secret ending.
