Announced at the Tokyo Game Show last week, the upcoming Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX will bring the classic Kingdom Hearts to the Playstation 3 with improved, widescreen, HD graphics, as well as trophy support.
But that’s not all! The 0.5 part of the equation comes courtesy of a PS3 port of the Game Boy Advance title Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories, once more in HD.
The second, more puzzling addition is the inclusion of cinematics from Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days, a Nintendo DS title. Only cinematics. No gameplay from that RPG will be included.
What’s also confounding us is the omission of Kingdom Hearts II. A close viewing of the trailer below reveals a gameplay style similar to that of Kingdom Hearts II, specifically the Reaction Command. Could there be a similar remastered collection with Kingdom Hearts II be on the way?
The graphics, meanwhile, look amazing. Additionally, Donald Duck speaking Japanese is my new favorite thing.
Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX will release in Japan in 2013. No news yet for international release.
