Kingdom Hearts HD Remix Could Come To Current Consoles

The co-director of Kingdom Hearts III, Tai Yasue, recently talked about the possibility of the Kingdom Hearts HD Remix collection coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

While talking to IGN, he had said that in the early stages of Kingdom Hearts III, Square Enix decided to make Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD Remix and Kingdom Hearts 2.5 HD Remix remasters. He had this to say on the matter:

“When we first came up with the idea for Kingdom Hearts III, it was always 1.5, then 2.5 and we were always thinking about those three titles at the same time. I think putting the games on PS4 is something we’ll explore. We understand what our players want, so we will explore the possibility. I’m not making any announcements though, we can’t make any announcements yet!”

Even if it does happen, the Xbox One version of Kingdom Hearts Remix HD is still questionable. Tai Yasue had this to say also:

“It’s a big old question. There’s a lot of things we need to think of when we consider consoles. One of them is what our players want, so we will definitely consider that. But there’s also schedule constraints, as we really don’t want the development of Kingdom Hearts III going later, so we have that to think about. We’ll consider all these things and come to a decision.”

Both Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD Remix and Kingdom Hearts 2.5 HD Remix are avaiblable now for PlayStation 3. Kingdom Hearts III is currently in development with no release date yet and will be released for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

My Opinion:

If they do release the Kingdom Hearts HD Remix Collection on PlayStation 4, I’m likely to get it shortly before Kingdom Hearts III is released. I played most of Kingdom Hearts and a little bit of Kingdom Hearts II. Having this released on Xbox One is a good idea considering that Kingdom Hearts III is coming to Xbox One.

One thought on “Kingdom Hearts HD Remix Could Come To Current Consoles”

  1. Is it unlikely for these titles to come to Xbox One because they aren’t currently in development where the PS4 versions are? That’s the only reason I can imagine why such a process would slow down development.

    If that’s the case, then you have to wonder why the games weren’t being developed for both consoles originally.
