Monday, July 15, 2013, Los Angeles based Square Enix Inc. announced an additional pre-order bonus for the upcoming “Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMix.” While Square Enix is always willing to push new properties, “Final Fantasy” and the Disney crossover, “Kingdom Hearts” series remain fan favorites. New “Final Fantasy” and “Kingdom Hearts” announcements were highlights of Sony’s E3 2013 Press conference, last month in Los Angeles.
Fans can now relive the origins of the celebrated “Kingdom Hearts” franchise with Sora, Riku and the colorful cast of Disney characters, including Mickey, Donald and Goofy. Fully re-mastered in HD, “Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMix” is a compilation of the critically acclaimed “Kingdom Hearts: Final Mix,” previously exclusive to the Japanese market, and “Kingdom Hearts Re: Chain of Memories.” In addition, this collection will feature enhanced gameplay mechanics, HD cinematic story videos from “Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days, and trophies for Sony’s PlayStation 3 system.
Customers who pre-order the game will receive a fully animated “Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMix” Dynamic Theme for the Playstation 3 dashboard, in addition to the previously announced limited edition art book bonus. The custom theme features key franchise characters from the various worlds within the “Kingdom Hearts” universe. “Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMix” will be available September 10, 2013 and can be preordered locally at retailers like GameStop or Best Buy as well as ordered online.
