If you were an avid PlayStation gamer during the PS2 era then you’ll probably have dabbled in Square Enix’s Kingdom Hearts series which originally set out to combine the magic of Disney with the stylishness of Final Fantasy. The first few games in the series drew plaudits for their outstanding animation, intriguing storylines, and fluid combat which combined the battle menus of Final Fantasy with real-time action to create a free-form, fast-paced experience.
Square Enix will be hoping that a new generation of gamers embrace the series following the release of Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX in North America today. This HD collection includes Kingdom Hearts Final Mix, Re: Chain of Memories, and the cutscenes from 358/2 Days to form an awesome introduction for newcomers to the franchise.
To celebrate the game’s availability in these territories, the publisher recently released a new trailer and some screens into the wild. Check them out below:
