Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 Remix coming in 2014

The prettified Kingdom Hearts history lesson will continue next year. Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 Remix bundles HD versions of Kingdom Hearts 2 Final Mix, Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep Final Mix, and cinematics from Kingdom Hearts Re:coded on PS3, Square Enix announced today.

The compilation is a sequel (if that term can apply to a bundle of previously released games) to September's Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix, and it re-completes the branching and re-branching timeline leading up to Kingdom Hearts 3.

This will be the first release outside of Japan for the Final Mix extended versions of Kingdom Hearts II and Birth by Sleep, which include a new difficulty mode and other minor additions.

With these changes in place, the only Kingdom Hearts game yet to be appear in some form in an HD compilation will be 2012 3DS title Dream Drop Distance. Then, maybe, Square Enix will release Kingdom Hearts 3. Or another prequel, whichever.

    Awesome. The ridiculousness of putting story-relevant entrys on 6 different platforms has always baffled me. FInally I have the chance to play Birth by Sleep.

    Yup, expected it. 2 and Birth By Sleep is awesome and i guess the Cutscenes from Re:Coded is neat, that game shouldnt have existed and im glad i avoided it.

    I knew it. I still think it's bogus that they couldn't have put it all in one big collection, but I guess I'll have to get this anyway since it has Birth By Sleep that I never got to play.

    I guess a 2.5 HD Remix was inevitable but it's good to know it is coming anyway. I haven't played any game in the series and I look forward to KH 1.5 whenever I'm able to play it.

    YEAH BABY! Now I need to get the first one... and actually play Kingdom Hears for the first time. :I
