New Kingdom Hearts HD Media Released


As far as media for the upcoming PS3 compilation Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX goes, we already got a promotional trailer showcasing the remastered version of the original 2002 Kingdom Hearts PS2 game that kicked off the series. Now, the other two titles that will be represented in the collection have their own preview video and set of screenshots to show off their enhanced visuals.

I use the word represented instead of playable due to the fact that for one of the two, Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days, the original DS game won’t be included, but all of its cutscenes will be there, red-one in pristine high definition. The other title, Kingdom Hearts Re: Chain of Memories, which was itself originally a polygonal PS2 remake of an earlier sprite-based Game Boy Advance game, will be represented in full, including the unlockable side campaign that introduced series favorite Riku as a playable character for the first time.

The title’s unique card-based battle gameplay will be kept intact and all three titles in the collection will offer PS3 Trophies for playing them (or viewing, in the case of Days).

Below, you can check out the new trailer and screenshots. Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX will be released exclusively on the PlayStation 3 on September 10.

We’ll keep you updated on future news regarding the series as it develops.
