Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 ReMIX Has Officially Been Rated By The ESRB

Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue releases tomorrow for the PS4, with the previous HD collections that span the rest of the series to date only releasing on PS3. However, that is changing with the upcoming release of Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 ReMIX on PS4 that was announced awhile back, and now the ESRB has officially rated it.

As to be expected in a remaster, Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 ReMIX will retain the same rating from both Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX and Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX in their standalone releases on PS3, which is an E10+ rating.

On top of revealing the official ESRB rating, the ESRB website also released the full rundown of why it received that rating, which is as follows:

“This is a compilation of action role-playing games, based on the Kingdom Hearts franchise, in which players assume the roles of young warriors trying to stop a destructive power. Players use key-shaped swords, magic spells, and attack cards to defeat classic Disney villains (e.g., Jafar, Ursula, Hades) and fantasy creatures (e.g., dragons, magical armor, shadow imps) in melee-style combat. Battles are accompanied by cries of pain and bursts of light; enemies generally disappear amid colorful orbs when defeated. Some sequences allow players to shoot projectiles from a first-person perspective; a handful of cutscenes depict characters dramatically dissolving into mist after being struck by magical swords or blasts of energy. One sequence depicts red bloodstains on coins.”

This may be a little longer description than most games get, but considering it includes four games and two cinematic movies within this new collection, it’s pretty succinct.

Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 ReMIX will release for PlayStation 4 on March 28, 2017. While waiting, make sure to pick up Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue if you’re looking for more Kingdom Hearts goodness. Once both games are released, it will be nice to be able to experience pretty much the entire series on one platform.
