In the absence of a proper, numbered sequel in the Kingdom Hearts franchise, gamers have been left with re-makes and portable side stories. And still, an HD compilation of the series progenitor, its first spin-off, the Re:Chain of Memories, and the Nintendo DS' 358/2 Days is an appealing package.

Square Enix has decided to sweeten Pooh's honey pot just a bit more. In addition to the reasonable entry price of $39.99 and the inclusion of trophy support, the publisher is adding a collectible art book to the package. It will feature a hardcover and samples from three entries in the franchise: Kingdom Hearts, Chain of Memories, and 358/2 Days.

Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix arrives on September 10 for the PlayStation 3. 

The full press release is available on page two.
