We’ll be getting some Kingdom Hearts action… in HD!
Remember a while back that Square Enix was going to release HD remakes of some of the earlier Kingdom Hearts games and smush them all into a sweet lil’ package? Well that sweet lil’ package is coming over to North America for PlayStation 3.
[UPDATE] European Peeps…
We’re happy to also say that KINGDOM HEARTS HD 1.5 ReMIX will becoming to EU as well for @playstation 3 in Fall 2013

Set for later this fall, Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMix will reacquaint you with young Sora, as he and his companions, Donald and Goofy, travel around to various Disney worlds and protect them from the evil Heartless. The collection will have Kingdom Hearts: Final Mix, a souped up version of the the original that was released only in Japan, Kingdom Hearts Re: Chain of Memories, and cut scenes from Kingdom Hearts: 358/2 Days. Also, the game will have Trophy support (good for you Trophy Hounds)!
I’m happy that we’re getting this, but releasing it in the fall might be a tad risky given how much is coming out then. Also, this looks to be a physical copy-only game, as Square Enix Community Manager Robert Peeler said they currently have no plans to release it on the PSN Store.
I guess if this does well, we should expect to see a follow-up with Kingdom Hearts II, Birth by Sleep… and maybe Dream Drop Distance for kicks and giggles. Then Kingdom Hearts III.
