“Time to save some pennies for December”
Release Date: 2nd December 2014
I must have been living under a rock to miss this! For some reason, I started out 2014 eagerly checking for the pre-orders of Kingdom Hearts 2.5 Final Mix Limited Edition (*phew* mouthful…), and when the pre-orders do open, it’s almost like I’d forgotten the game existed.
This is of course the HD update for the original Kingdom Heart 2, and also contains the Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep, and Kingdom Hearts Re:coded. I can’t seem to figure out if Re:coded is actually the game or just the cutscenes? Regardless of whatever it is, I know I’ll still end up purchasing this.
Sadly, there’s no mention of an artbook like in the release of Kingdom Hearts 1.5, but for your hard-earned cash you get an *Exclusive Pin*. Yes, the artwork for Kingdom Hearts 1.5 wasn’t brilliant, but at least it made me look forward to getting the package, now it’s a…a… PIN.
Hard to get excited about that.
You can see the Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 Remix Limited Edition (PS3) here.
See below for synopsis and trailer:
Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 Remix is an HD remastered compilation of Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix and Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep Final Mix.
Previously exclusive to Japan, both games will be available for the first time across Europe and PAL regions for the PlayStation3 system. HD remastered cinematics from Kingdom Hearts Re:coded will also be included in the compilation.
The game is a sequel to last year’s Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix and will lead into the highly anticipated Kingdom Hearts III.
