E3 2017 finally gave Kingdom Hearts fans exactly what we wanted: a release date. Unfortunately, that date signified the next trailer for the elusive Kingdom Hearts 3 rather than the full release, but that didn’t stop excitement from brewing in a community stimulated by a fantastic E3 trailer. With gorgeous visuals, frantic action and story teases, Sora’s next adventure seems to be shaping up beautifully.
Despite releasing in one of the the most critically rich periods in gaming history, Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 ReMix effortlessly pulled me back into the beloved marriage of Disney and Final Fantasy. As the stellar collection’s nostalgic mix of music, action and character washed over me, I couldn’t help but reminisce about a simpler time. Not just in terms of my personal journey (playing the original as a 9-year-old fresh off divorce to now as 23-year-old navigating the perils of young-adult life), but in regards to the series itself. See, Kingdom Hearts has a big problem, and it’s defined by everyone’s favorite House of Mouse. The issue is simple: Kingdom Hearts doesn’t have enough Disney.
Kingdom Hearts 1.5+2.5 Remix will have most of the games in the entire Kingdom Hearts saga. Kingdom Hearts Re:Coded and Kingdom Hearts 258/2 Days will be in movie form while the rest of it will be its respected games.
All of the above will be available in one package in 1080p with 60fps.
Kingdom Hearts 1.5+2.5 Remix will be available exclusively for the PlayStation 4 and will be released on March 23, 2017.
I wish I could get this right now, but I can’t. I knew that it will take a bit for me to get it, but it might be longer than I wish. I just hope I play this and Kingdom Hearts 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue before Kingdom Hearts III comes out.

While most of the Kingdom Hearts series’ gibberish names are of little consequence, the franchise’s third HD collection is perfectly described by its title. Kingdom Hearts 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue is the perfect introduction to Kingdom Hearts 3, featuring two games and an HD movie that flow directly into the anticipated sequel. The collection is aimed squarely at longtime fans of the series, featuring Dream Drop Distance, 0.2 Birth by Sleep – A Fragmentary Passage (0.2) and X Back Cover. Without the necessary background knowledge, however, newcomers with find themselves lost in the convoluted tangle of narrative surrounding some of gaming’s finest action-RPG gameplay.
