Kingdom Hearts 2.5 Remix will launch in North America this year

Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 Remix, a compilation including the Final Mix editions of Kingdom Hearts 2 and Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep, will launch for PlayStation 3 this year, Square Enix announced.

The compilation will feature new boss battles, weapons, mini-games and more. Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep Final Mix was released in Japan for PlayStation Portable in 2011; its release this year marks the edition's first time stateside and its launch on consoles. Birth By Sleep, which takes place 10 years before the original Kingdom Hearts, is the story of keyblade wielders Terra, Aqua and Ventus.

Kingdom Hearts 2, a sequel to the original game, was originally released in 2005 for PlayStation 2.

The HD 2.5 Remix will also feature a remastered version of Kingdom Hearts Re:coded. The game takes place after the events of Kingdom Hearts 2 and follows Sora and friends as they explore a virtual world. The game was originally released as Kingdom Hearts coded.

Square Enix released Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix last year. It included Kingdom Hearts Final Mix, Kingdom Hearts Re: Chain of Memories and the cutscenes of 358/2 Days.
