The Kingdom Hearts series of games has become quite popular and soon there will be an addition coming in the form of the Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 Remix. According to reports, the new game will be coming to the Playstation 3 sometime next year and it will come with playable versions of Kingdom Hearts 2 Final Mix and Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep Final Mix both in HD. The first game was first available on the Playstation 2, while the latter is for the Playstation Portable (PSP) device.
Neither of the two games have been released in the United States, so this might be something worth getting excited about. Also included in the package is more cut scenes from the Nintendo DS game Kingdom Hearts Re:coded. The hints that this was coming have been out there for a little while now, so it should not be too surprising to those that are following news in the gaming world. Square Enix, which is the company that is putting the compilation out, put a lot of effort into the first version, number 1.5 and if you played that, you would have seen the sequel coming.
The idea behind the new release is to bring all gamers that have not played the first two Kingdom Hearts up to speed before the third installment to the franchise is release for the Playstation 4 and Xbox One. Some gamers might have been too young to know what the game was all about, while others might have lived in an area of the world that was not able to pick the game up once it was for sale. Either way, the information put into the compilation games should get you back on track and ready for the newest release next year.
Kingdom Hearts first launched back in 2002 in has been developed by Disney and Square Enix studios for most of that time. Since the beginning of 2011, the game has sold more than 17 million copies worldwide, plus a wide variety of other merchandise like soundtracks, figures, books, novels and a magna series. Titles since the original was released include the Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories, Kingdom Hearts II, Kingdom Hearts coded, Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days, Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep and Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance.
