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.

I can't wait to play this! I never cared for Kingdom Hearts 1 however Kingdom Hearts 2 and Birth By Sleep are the best in my opinion. I'm going to put in SO MANY hours into this. xD
Unrelated to the topic,but I'm hyped to see what characters square has in store for KH3. I'd love for zack to return an an adult,and since they had some characters from the world ends with you make an appearance in 3D,I'd love for Mr.Hanaekoma to at least make an appearance because his personality fits the whole kingdom hearts universe VERY well. Also I'd love if they threw in Gilgamesh as a boss,simply cuz that'd be awesome,but preferably the ff12 Gilgamesh considering how many different FF characters have appeared in the KH series,and what with 12s Gilgamesh using different iconic FF weapons in the rematch with him so it'd make sense for KH3.
Love the KH series. I can remember buying the first KH. I was around 23 or 24.....I think (I'm 32 now). Some of my friends thought I was stupid for playing a game that was so "kiddie" in their eyes. Then the HD version of KH1 came out & now some of those same haters back then can't stop talking about it today! I even got my nephew into the series. Can't wait for this remix because I've only played KH 1&2. I played Chain of Memories a long time ago, but couldn't get into the card based combat deep enough to finish it. Plus, I'm not into handheld games....although I now play a s***load of 'em on my iPad....which is like a handheld device, so I guess you can say I like them now. Anyway....can't wait for this HD remix. Kingdom Hearts III is going to be EPIC!!!!
sorry to sound pessimistic, but I doubt KH 3D will be remade in HD, if it is though, that'd be nice
Y U NO RELEASE ON PS4 TOO? (Haha, the woes of switching console makers)
I still need to get the first remake. Love the series.
I really hope KH 3D isn't left out as the only title that doesn't get the HD makeover. That'll make me sad as it was a great game :(
I've been looking forward to this one. KH2 is one of my favorite PS2 games, so I can't wait to play the final mix version. I've been raging about Squeenix's failure to bring it overseas ever since it was announced; I'm dying to know when it's going to release!
Are pre-orders for this game still including the artbook? because I forgot to do that with the first one and I got really lucky finding the special edition used at a Gamestop.
Still need to get Kingdom Hearts 1.5 sometime.
Just got 1.5, so I can't wait for this to come out.
This is one of two reasons why I'm keeping my PS3 once I get my hands on a PS4. Kingdom Hearts took over my late middle school and early high school years.
more and more reasons not to trade in my p3. now to save up money for the p4
