Kingdom Hearts HD Collection Announced

At this years Tokyo Game Show, Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD Remix was officially announced for the Playstation 3. The collection will include both Kingdom Hearts Final Mix (a special edition of the original Kingdom Hearts featuring new weapons, enemies, and cutscenes) and Kingdom Hearts Re: Chain of Memories. Also included in the HD collection will be a selection of cutscenes from the DS game Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days.

The trophy supported collection is to be released in Japan around March (no exact dates have been given). Though it has yet to be officially announced for western release, it has been intimated by Disney Interactive’s CFO Jay Rasulo that the game will indeed reach western shores.

This is great news for Kingdom HeartsĀ fans since recent HD collections have been the heralding of new instalments within their series’. Devil May Cry, God of War, and Sly Cooper have all had HD collections in the past year and all have new games coming out in this next year.
