Kingdom Hearts 1.5+2.5 ReMix

Right now, the Kingdom Hearts 1.5+2.5 ReMix collection is going for just $24.99 on the Epic Games Store. That’s half its usual price as it’s normally fifty bucks, but it’s only until August 3, 2023 – so you’ve got just two days to get in on this deal.

Kingdom Hearts is a cultural staple

Having been addicted to this series for twenty years, I can’t tell you how much you’ll enjoy this if you’ve never played it before. And, with the upcoming release of Kingdom Hearts IV, it’s a good time to walk down memory lane and revisit some of those classics for those who’ve completed it already.

The 1.5+2.5 ReMix gives you six iconic games from the franchise. Notably, it includes “Kingdom Hearts Final Mix,” which was initially only released in Japan. This means, for many of us, this presents the opportunity to experience content we’ve never seen before like another difficulty mode, extra bosses, keyblades and areas, new cutscenes, abilities, enemies, and more.

Here’s a quick rundown of what’s in the bundle:

  1. Kingdom Hearts Final Mix: Packed with extra content not seen in the original Western release of Kingdom Hearts
  2. Kingdom Hearts Re: Chain of Memories: An immersive card-based combat system that added a whole new layer to the gameplay. (A remake of the Game Boy Advance game!)
  3. Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days (HD Remastered cinematics, no gameplay): Dive deeper into the story of Roxas and the Organization XIII
  4. Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix: Again, more content that Western fans didn’t get in the original Kingdom Hearts II release and arguably the best combat in the series
  5. Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep Final Mix: The gripping prequel to the original Kingdom Hearts, that follows Terra, Aqua, and Ventus’ journey
  6. Kingdom Hearts Re:coded (HD Remastered cinematics, no gameplay): Relive the adventures of Data-Sora in Castle Oblivion – originally a phone game in Japan and then a Nintendo DS release in the United States

As much as we wish it included Kingdom Hearts III, it still offers plenty of content to get sucked into before we step into Sora’s shoes in the realistic Quadratum that’s based on modern-day Shibuya. Let me know in the comments if you already own this on PlayStation, or if you’re going to spin it up on your Steam Deck!
