I’ll admit when the first Kingdom Hearts title was announced back in 2002 that I thought it was all one big joke. I mean seriously, Square Enix teaming up with Disney to create a J-RPG? It smelled of disaster. Clearly I was wrong as more than a decade on and multiple releases on multiple platforms, the series is still going strong with a fan base of dedicated gamers clambering for their next fix.
With that in mind, it isn’t all that surprising for Square Enix to put out Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX, a high-definition compilation of arguably some of the best titles in the series so far. The 1.5 ReMIX includes Kingdom Hearts Final Mix, Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories, and lastly Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days. Despite the success Kingdom Hearts has garnered over the years, Kingdom Hearts Final Mix and Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories have never been released locally in Australia, until now.
