The lights are on
Following the success of Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix, which brought together Kingdom Hearts, Chain of Memories, and the cutscenes from 358/2 Days, Square Enix is readying another collection of titles from the series. Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 Remix is due out in 2014.
This second batch, which is coming exclusively to the PlayStation 3, includes Kingdom Hearts 2 Final Mix, Birth by Sleep Final Mix (originally a PSP title), and the cutscenes from mobile title Re:Coded. By our count, that only leaves the 3DS’ Dream Drop Distance that has yet to receive an HD upgrade.
You can check out a new trailer, which shows a recap of the events covered in HD 1.5 Remix and some scenes from each of the three games covered in HD 2.5 Remix. For more Kingdom Hearts, be sure to check out our preview of Kingdom Hearts III in the January 2014 issue.

This is the one we've been waiting for. Can't wait to play Birth By Sleep on console. It was already one of the series' best on PSP, I can only imagine how much better it will be with better controls.
I have never regretted not having a PS3 more than when these games were announced. Sadly I have spent far too much this year on the Wii U and PS4.
I am gonna buy this so hard. Kingdom Hearts 1.5 is the only PS3 game I didn't trade towards my PS4. I didn't really play any of them much anymore and still kept the collector's items, but KH is the only actual game I kept. Just gotta get 2.5 and FFX/X2 and I'll enough reason to not plug in my PS4 for a few weeks.
Jeez so many games I haven't gotten yet in 2013 looks like 2014 isn't gonna be relaxing -.- lol I'm excited for this one cause I LOVE KH2 more and BBS they were awesome :)
Words cannot describe my excitement. Also, I don't think Dream Drop Distance will receive the HD treatment before KH III since it's original is still technically on the market. The good news is that KH III will probably recap the important stuff like KH II did for Chain of Memories.
Well got to add this one to my list of games I plan on getting in 2014
YAY!! I cannot wait for this game I still have the original 1 and II on my ps2 and I already have the 1.5 with art book I will deffinantly buy this and 3 on release day
I can't wait for this game a.this is my all time favorite kingdom hearts games except for re coded which I've never played a.still can't wait.
