Kingdom Hearts series producer Shinji Hashimoto announced during a presentation at Paris Games Week that the two previously released remasters featuring several Kingdom Hearts games will be ported to the Playstation 4.

Kingdom Hearts 1.5 & 2.5 ReMIX will be available March 9th in Japan, March 28th in North America, and March 31st 2017 in Europe!!

Kingdom Hearts 1.5 & 2.5 ReMIX will feature 60fps, much like Dream Drop Distance HD in Kingdom Hearts 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue. Both Kingdom Hearts 1.5 ReMIX and Kingdom Hearts 2.5 ReMIX will fit onto one disc.

The series being entirely available on one system means those who were initially put off from playing the series before can finally jump in and experience the entire Kingdom Hearts saga. Here's a short summary of what you will be getting when Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX and Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX launch on PS4:

In Kingdom Hearts Final Mix HD, Sora is a happy go-lucky 14 year old living on Destiny islands with his best friends, Riku and Kairi. One day his island is destroyed and he finds himself with a giant key called the Keyblade which vanquishes beasts known as the Heartless. Teaming up with Donald Duck and Goofy, the trio travel from world to world to find their friends.

Sora, Donald, and Goofy are making their way through endless fields when they find themselves walking into a gigantic castle filled with trickery and deciet in Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories HD. With cards being the only way forward, Sora must battle numourous foes to get to the bottom of a mystery unlike any other while Riku searches for the truth within himself with the help of an unexpected ally.

Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days HD is a cinematic retelling of a year in the life of Roxas, a Nobody who is brought into Organization XIII. He and his best friends Axel and Xion learn a lot about the Heart, emotions, and the complexities of life as the story features to a thrilling conclusion that leads right into Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX.

Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix HD takes place one year after Kingdom Hearts. Sora is now 15 and is still looking for Riku and Kairi. On top of that, Organization XIII is putting their plans into motion. With the worlds in jeopardy again it's up to Sora, Donald, and Goofy to restore the light.

Like many sagas, the Kingdom Hearts series features a prequel entry to fill in the gaps in the series lore. Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep Final Mix HD takies place 10 years prior to Sora's first adventure. During this time there were three weilders who's fates were changed forever when Master Xehanort put his plan into resurrecting the χ-blade and retrieving Kingdom Hearts in motion.

And finally Kingdom Hearts Re:Coded HD Cinematics takes place after Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix HD where bugs have invaded Jiminy Cricket's Journal. A digital Sora is tasked with traveling through the Journal to discover the source of the bugs while facing Pete and Maleficent. Re:Coded HD organises the important information from previous games and lines everything up before launching you into Kingdom Hearts HD II.8 Final Chapter Prologue.

I hate myself for saying this, but I'm so gonna get those on day 1. Feels like a waste of money on one hand, but on the other...<br>I really hope they'll fix the glitch problems though.

Re: Kingdom Hearts 1.5/2.5 Coming to Playstation 4!

This is fantastic news for everyone that missed out. It's a smart move. Unsure if I'll purchase, as I just spent my entire summer replaying the whole series. I'm not sure if it'll be worth it for me, but this is excellent news, especially for those who transitioned over from Xbox in the past or just missed the series in general. It is a few days after my birthday though...

Also, I wonder what this means for KH3's release if anything. It could totally be nothing, but having this and 2.8 come out in the same year as KH3 doesn't seem plausible. I'd imagine this is at least in part being released in order to hold fans over until 2018.

I'm glad it's finally coming, but why did they cut the life stream during this presentation? Is there any more info?

Re: Kingdom Hearts 1.5/2.5 Coming to Playstation 4!

Holy shit, you guys have no idea how long this article has been sitting waiting to be published. I think ever since E3 2015 it's been bumped up every event but never published lol.

So glad it's finally out there in the open, and I'm relieved to be able to play Kingdom Hearts again <3

Re: Kingdom Hearts 1.5/2.5 Coming to Playstation 4!

I'm probably getting that version as well, although it does feel like a little waste of money now to have got the PS3 versions, lol.


What's with the trophies? If you have them already in the PS3 variant will they be recognized or do you need to/can earn them anew in the PS4 port?

Probably won't buy it unless it's a super cheap price. Already played through all the games I wanted to play.

You keep them. They count together for both systems. If you already got a platinum, you can't get another one.

Re: Kingdom Hearts 1.5/2.5 Coming to Playstation 4!

This really looks amazing, but I have two questions:

1. Will this be in 60fps?

2. Will I be able to transfer my PS3 trophies to a PS4?

I am so stoked my dudes

Holy crap, it's early in the morning and I can't keep up with all these announcements! I'm happy this was announced and now, more than ever, do I need to get a PS4 Slim.

This is amazing. I'm so happy this is happening. Finally, the entire Kingdom Hearts series will be on a single platform (with the exception of Unchained Chi, but that's the whole reason Back Cover is a thing, so technically it's still the entire series). They're really treating the KH community next year. 2017 is the year of KH. 2.8, 1.5+2.5 Remaster, the world orchestra, "year round KH news" according to Nomura. Holy shit I am so ready.

I actually hope they don't fix the glitches. Because then I'll feel the urge to buy these again and play through them all again, and I really, really don't want to -_-

But at least this announcement will finally end people asking for it.
