Square Enix announces Kingdom Hearts 2.5 Remix

Kingdom Hearts 2.5 Remix has now been officially announced for the PS3 and will be released in 2014.

After the teaser in Kingdom Hearts 1.5 Remix, it’s not as if this news is a surprise, but it’s still great to hear.  The compilation will feature two full playable games: Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix and Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep Final Mix.  The third featured title, Re: Coded, will receive similar treatment to 358/2 Days and get the movie-like cutscene treatment.

The most exciting release in this bundle is Birth By Sleep, as this is the first time it will be playable on a system other than the PSP.  In addition, the Final Mix treatment will add additional content to an already stellar installment.

It seems as if Square-Enix is going all out to prepare us for the glorious release of Kingdom Hearts III.  One just wonders what they’ll do with Dream Drop Distance, as it leads right into the concluding game of the trilogy.  I have my doubts that they’ll do anything, but we’ll all just have to wait and see.
