A collection of collections.
The one big problem with Square Enix’s attempted consolidation of all the wide ranging Kingdom Hearts entries, that came out across five separate platforms, and all maintained narrative continuity, was that they put their collections for all games on PS3.
This was well and good, but Kingdom Hearts 3 is a PS4 (and Xbox One) game, and PS4 is not backwards compatible with PS3 games. Worse still, Kingdom Hearts 2.8 HD is a PS4 game- so you still need at least two platforms to enjoy the entire series.
Well, Square Enix are attempting to fix that. Today, they announced Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5+2.5 ReMIX, which will consolidate the two PS3 Kingdom Hearts collection into a single collection on PS4. Playing through 1.5+2.5 ReMIX, as well as 2.8 HD, should catch fans up on Kingdom Hearts 3, for when that releases next year on PS4 and Xbox One.
The full list of games in the package is below:
