Square Enix’s remastering (although this being one of the more ambitious remastering efforts actually puts it closer to a re-imagining than anything else) of the first chapter of the Kingdom Hearts franchise- this includes the classic PlayStation 2 title that kicked the franchise off, along with Kingdom Hearts Re: Chain of Memories (the PS2 port of the Gameboy Advance entry in the series), and other extensive special material, including all the movies from 358/2 Days (the Nintendo DS entry in the saga), artwork, and soundtrack, that effectively recapitulates the entire first part of the story so far, hits the PlayStation 3 today. What you see above is the launch trailer.
Did any of you ever play the original game? Because that trailer tugs at the heartstrings like almost nothing else can. It almost makes the wait for Kingdom Hearts 3 that much more unbearable.
Say what you will about Square Enix, but man, between this and their upcoming Final Fantasy X|X-2 remasters, they seem to do their classic titles justice.
Stay tuned to GamingBolt, because our full review of the remastered classic goes live in a few hours.
