The chapters of Kingdom Hearts, the famous action-RPG saga born from the collaboration between Square Enix And Disney Interactive Studios, are about to land en masse on PlayStation 4, ready to be rediscovered by fans with a new graphic design, or usable for younger players who have not yet started playing it.
Recently, on the occasion of Paris Games Week, Square Enix announced that it will bring to PlayStation 4 Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 ReMIX, a collection of the two remaster collections already released on PlayStation 3 of the first chapters of the saga. All the chapters were originally released on different consoles and offer a renewed graphic design. The “Final Mix” versions of the games instead will have unreleased content that before the re-release on PS3 had remained only in Japan.
To recap, the new “collection of collection” on PlayStation 4 will include:
