Now that you've had a month to work through Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix, you may be ready for even more RPG revamps. Square Enix today announced HD 2.5 Remix, which crams another three games into one big tarted-up Disney crossover bundle, coming exclusively to PlayStation 3 in 2014.
The core of 2.5 Remix is Kingdom Hearts II's Final Mix, an expanded Japan-exclusive version of the PS2 game. It also packs the similarly exclusive Final Mix of the PSP's Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep, and the cutscenes from DS game Kingdom Hearts Re:coded (which was itself a remake of an episodic mobile game).
Square Enix is jazzing them up with new graphics, tweaked gameplay, and all that. It's a little curious that this collection isn't coming to Xbox 360 either, as Kingdom Hearts III is to wrap up the trilogy on both PS4 and Xbox One, but the series will be entirely new to staunch Xboxeers.
