Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMix

Square Enix has finally announced a release date for their upcoming PlayStation 3 Kingdom Hearts compilation, Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX, on September 10 for North American territories. This HD remaster packages both Kingdom Hearts Final Mix and Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories on one convenient disc.

Kingdom Hearts Final Mix was a Japan exclusive title and a rerelease of the original Kingdom Hearts with added content. This includes new cutscenes to flesh out the story, additional optional bosses, new abilities, new weapons, gameplay tweaks and two more difficulty levels. This will be the first time the title has come to US soil.

Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories is the PlayStation 2 port of the Game Boy Advance game Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories that came out back in 2008. Whereas the original was done with sprite art, Re:Chain was done with 3D character models and settings while keeping the mechanics intact. It also adds new cutscenes, new battles, and some added voice acting to a couple of scenes. Because Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX will be released in Europe, as well, this marks the first time Re:Chain hits European markets.

This compilation will also include video cutscenes from Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days (pronounced Three Five Eight Days Over Two. Don’t ask). This DS interquel tells the story of Roxas during his days with Organization XIII.

As the HD in the title implies, everything has been upgraded to high-definition graphics. What did you think the HD stood for? Hot Doughnuts?

In addition, Square Enix is also offering a limited edition hard cover  24-page art book as a preorder bonus. See image below for a snippet:

About Karli Winata

Karli Winata is an avid gamer with a taste for a little bit of everything. Except for sports games. And racing sims. And definitely not hidden object games! I guess everything is too broad a term. Suffice it to say that he has been known to play hours of Call of Duty multiplayer in between bouts of Persona fusing and Star Coin collecting while saving the world/galaxy through sensibly bald space marines or plucky teenagers with impossible hairstyles. Where does he find the time to write about them?




  • 358/2 Days is actually pronounced “three five eight days over two.”

  • September is gonna be a huge blow to my wallet.

    Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix, GTAV, and YS4 for Vita. How come so many amazing things keep coming this year?

    Time to buy this game for the 4th time!

    I’ll get the game eventually. I’m already committing $100 for the Tales of Xillia collector’s edition.

  • And I believe the name has to do with how long Roxas was in Organization XIII (358 days) before his week at the beginning of Kingdom Hearts 2 (hence the “over 2”).

    • Nope the 2 refers to the 2 people who shared those days, Xion, & Roxas

    • Ah, ok. Thanks for clearing that up. I wasn’t really sure.

    You should note that the preorder bonus is only available through Square Enix’s store, Amazon, GameStop, and Walmart only. If you look on the official website for the game it links to those websites for preorder bonus.

    Even if Kingdom hearts is one of the best games I have ever played, I refuse to support Square Enix’s “Let’s HD ’em all” tactics.
    Although I won’t judge anyone who wants to buy the game. It’s certainly worth it, especially now.
