Square Enix has shared the first gameplay videos of its upcoming collection Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 ReMIX. Behind that incredibly complicated title lies a game that reunites most entries in the Kingdom Hearts series in PlayStation 4, and for the first time ever we will be able to play them running at 60FPS.
The first video shows gameplay of the original Kingdom Hearts game and the spin off Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories. The KH1 segment shows the main character fighting in the world of Hollow Bastion alongside Disney character the Beast, while from Chain of Memories we see some battles showcasing the combat system based on the use of cards.
The second video shows segments from Kingdom Hearts II and Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep, and one detail that was not missed is that it proves how this release for PS4 fixes the very annoying effect that happened in the KH2 version for PS3 in which the game slowed down every time we would transform into a drive form. Other gameplay videos on Twitter have shown that this new compilation also reduces loading times, which were one of the main issues players had with the PS3 releases.
Overall, Kingdom Hearts 1.5 + 2.5 offers four full games with all their extra content from the Final Mix editions, and two video compilations, which is a really good deal to anyone interested in the series but never could play it in full, given that most entries were released for different platforms, even of their story was connected.
Now PS4 players will only need this release and the recent Kingdom Hearts 2.8 to be up to date with the story of the series. The game launches tomorrow in Japan, while those in the West we’ll have to wait until March 28 in North America and March 31 in Europe.
