Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD Remix

Kingdom Hearts is a unique blend of Japanese and American icons. Square blends its Final Fantasy heroes with Disney characters merging into one franchise. Developed by Square Enix and distributed by Disney Interactive Studios, Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix is coming to the PlayStation 3 this year. It is a collection of the previous games in the series. Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix includes Kingdom Hearts Final Mix (available for the first time in North America), Kingdom Hearts RE: Chain of Memories and the cinematics from Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days, all bundled together. Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix is an attempt to satisfy Kingdom Heart fans until the release of the long-awaited Kingdom Hearts 3 (currently beginning development). Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix will be released in North America on September 10.

This updated HD version includes the original games, such as Kingdom Hearts Final Mix, a game in the franchise similar in gameplay to Kingdom Hearts II, but in the new updated version it contains improved combat and inventory. The update simplifies combat and makes the character interaction smoother. The game also has Kingdom Hearts Re: Chain of Memories, a game that originally released on the GameBoy Advance and was later remade on PS2 as RE: Chain of Memories. Chain of Memories is a card game played in real time. The cards help the player attack, maneuver and revive on the battlefield. Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix also includes Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days, which is a theater mode with remastered scenes from the DS game. Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days is not playable beyond the cinematics; however, there are two and a half hours of remastered cutscenes that convey the game’s story. All of these games have trophy support for this PS3 version. Trophy support allows the player to unlock trophies or achievements. This feature was not available in the original game. Overall, the gameplay was modified to play more like Kingdom Hearts II and Chain of Memories.

RE: Chain of Memories

Familiar Kingdom Hearts characters are back. The story follows three characters: Sora, Riku and Kiari, as well as a large number of Disney characters. The main character is Sora. Riku is Sora’s rival and friend. Kiari is Sora’s love interest. They live on an island in the middle of nowhere with no idea how they got there. They want to get out and find a new home and the game begins. Many of the places Sora finds as he looks for Kiari are inspired by or are already a location in the Disney Universe. Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix has an interesting mix of Disney and Final Fantasy characters for the main plot, and the remastered collection should impress old fans and gather news one along the way.

358/2 Days

Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix was already released in Japan in March. The general consensus so far is that the graphics are greatly improved in the HD format. The gameplay has been improved and there is more content to it on the PS3. But the game does feel dated at its core. It is a PS2 game and Chain of Memories still feels like a GameBoy Advance game turned PS2 game. Fans are eagerly anticipating Kingdom Hearts 3 that is currently being developed by Square Enix and will be released on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
