Titles due to the arrive in March next year

Kingdom Hearts fans rejoice, as Sony’s latest console is set to receive some classic games in the series.

Announced at Paris Games Week by publisher Square Enix and Disney, a comprehensive compilation of the Kingdom Hearts games is set to arrive for the PS4 very soon. Namely, Kingdom Hearts 1.5 ReMIX and Kingdom Hearts 2.5 ReMIX will be the ones getting the PS4 treatment.


With this announcement, PS4 owners who have missed out on the series can now pretty much play every game in the franchise. And for those who think that the graphics would be grossly outdated, as these games did originally arrive on the PS2, there is hope yet. While Square Enix hasn’t done a complete remaster of the series, at least you’re getting a resolution bump to full HD. This means that while the game won’t wow you with its looks, it will be far from being unplayable.

As stated earlier, Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 ReMIX is a compilation of Kingdom Hearts games, and the list includes:

  • Kingdom Hearts Final Mix
  • Kingdom Hearts Re: Chain of Memories
  • Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days (HD Remastered Cinematics)
  • Kingdom Hearts 2 Final Mix
  • Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep Final Mix
  • Kingdom Hearts Re: Coded

There is a good chance that fans of Kingdom Hearts have already played this collection on the PS3. This is because the very same collection was first dropped on Sony’s last gen console. But seeing that the PS4 has extended Sony’s audience base considerably, it is good idea to re-release the compilation on the current console.

Square Enix confirmed the release date of this compilation of March 28, 2017. This means that it will arrive roughly two months after another Kingdom Hearts game on the PS4: Kingdom Hearts HD II.8 – Final Chapter Prologue.

Reports also suggest that the much awaited third entry in the series will be a PS4-exclusive. Square Enix removed Kingdom Hearts III’s Japanese Xbox One webpage, which caused a scare among Xbox owners. And Square Enix did nothing to relieve those qualms, which means that Xbox One players might indeed be getting the axe.
