• Kingdom Hearts 2.5 Collectors Edition Bundles Announced

    With the Japanese release date of October 2nd approaching, Square Enix have released details for the Collector's Edition bundles that will be available for Kingdom Hearts 2.5 Remix. The standard edition of the game will include HD remakes of Kingdom Hearts II: Final Mix (previously unreleased outside of Japan), Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep and cut-scenes from Kingdom Hearts Re:coded.

    This edition of the game will be available in Japan for 6,648 Yen (approx. $65USD). Added bonuses include a Kingdom Hearts PS3 theme for people who purchase the game through Amazon, and an anniversary set of items for Kingdom Hearts X[Chi] included with first print editions of the game (chances are very slim this will be an included bonus in the western release, with Kingdom Hearts X[Chi] being unavailable outside of Japan).

    However for those willing to fork out the extra money, there are a total of six bundles available for purchase. There is Kingdom Hearts Starter Pack, which will include both Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD Remix and Kingdom Hearts 2.5 HD Remix, and for fans who really want to go all out there is the Kingdom Hearts: Collectors Pack. This will include Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix, Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 Remix, a Blu-ray disc with 32 songs from both games, and the Kingdom Hearts Visual Art collection which has 30 pages of artwork, including one drawing by Tetsuya Nomura himself. As a final bonus, all of these bundles are also available for purchase with a Play Arts Kai Sora figurine.

    As a fan who didnt buy Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD Remix these bundles will be perfect for me if they are made available outside of Japan. But I cant help but feel this is an inconvenience for people who want the new Collectors Pack for the extras, but already bought Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD Remix and will have to pay extra for a game they already own. So assuming that these bundles make it out of Japan will you be paying the extra dollars for them? Do you feel they are good value for money? What would you like to see as a replacement for the Kingdom Hearts X[Chi] anniversary items? Leave your thoughts in the comments below.

      I'd buy it. Even though I have 1.5 HD already.

      okay. they can go ahead and sign me up! how long do you think that this edition will be available?

      I've only got Kingdom Hearts I & II, and Chain of Memories. would I benefit from this package? also, will they ever release the other handheld titles for PS3???

      please excuse all of the questions. I haven't been keeping up with this franchise for the last couple of years.

      With the two HD ReMIXes you are getting 1, CoM (ps2 version), 358/2 Days (movie version), 2, Birth By Sleep, and Re: Coded (Movie version). The only thing you are missing is Dream Drop Distance in terms of the handheld games, but I don't see that getting ported to the PS3 anytime soon, jody. It's the last game that was released (on the 3DS). It is pretty important to the story though so I don't know.

      These collector's editions don't usually last long past the release date, Jody. You would most likely want to pre-order it to make sure you can get all the limited edition collectibles that come with it. However one good thing about an early Japanese release is you can see how fast everything sells over there, though admittedly the series has always done very well in Japan.

      All that news will be right here on the front site around the October 2 release date, I'm sure
