Kingdom Hearts II is Getting HD-ified for PS3
Gangling Goof Troop! Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 has barely had time to get cold on the shelf before this announcement dropped on our laps. Square Enix has confirmed the second major act in the Disney/Final Fantasy mash-up (why is that still ridiculous to say aloud after all these years?) is receiving a high-definition polish and being re-released as Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 Remix exclusively for the PlayStation 3.
The disc includes Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix – a reformulated edition of the sequel previously unavailable on Western shores – and Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep Final Mix, which was a PSP exclusive prequel to the original Kingdom Hearts but focuses on characters featured in Kingdom Hearts II. So, basically, Kingdom Hearts because Kingdom Hearts when Kingdom Hearts.
Additionally, the HD set also features every cinematic from the Nintendo DS title Kingdom Hearts Re:coded, newly treated in that there HD you kids go so bonkers over. KH HD 2.5 Remix is launching globally in 2014. Two back to back re-releases could signify that Square Enix is hinting at its fans that it needs funding for Kingdom Hearts III, meaning that not purchasing it is the same as destroying dreams.
