In KINGDOM HEARTS HD 1.5 ReMIX, players will be able to indulge in the celebrated KINGDOM HEARTS universe once again with Sora, Riku and the timeless cast of Disney characters, including Mickey, Donald and Goofy. The game marks the first time a KINGDOM HEARTS title has made its way onto the PlayStation®3 system.

The fully remastered HD compilation includes the critically acclaimed  KINGDOM HEARTS FINAL MIX, previously exclusive to the Japanese market, and KINGDOM HEARTS Re:Chain of Memories. The compilation will also feature HD cinematic story videos from  KINGDOM HEARTS 358/2 Days, enhanced gameplay mechanics and PlayStation®3 system trophies.

"The first KINGDOM HEARTS game was released more than 10 years ago, and following that, my only regret was never releasing KINGDOM HEARTS FINAL MIX overseas," said Tetsuya Nomura, director of the KINGDOM HEARTS franchise at SQUARE ENIX. "With the release of KINGDOM HEARTS HD 1.5 ReMIX, fans everywhere now have the chance to play the game in a brand-new high-definition format – and with that, I'm very pleased."

" With a crossover combo of classic Disney and cutesy Final Fantasy characters, this collection couldn't be more endearing." -@Gamer Magazine, September 2013 (4.5/5)
