During this year’s Tokyo Game Show,Square Enix announced that it would be revamping one of its most cherished IPs for current-gen hardware. Titled “Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD ReMIX” the three-layer bundle comes tagged with high-def remasters of the original game alongside Chain of Memories and 2009’s 358/2 Days, which originally launched on the Nintendo DS.
The game’s first official trailer is impressive to say the least and it will be interesting to see how the Final Fantasy publisher reworks each instalment to suit contemporary gamers.
1.5 HD is due to launch in Japan sometime next year. We’ve yet to hear of an English localisation though, given the IPs’ substantial Western fanbase, we’re likely to get a bite.
