Kingdom Hearts 1.5 Remix!!
I don’t know if I can speak for everyone but I am excited for the Kingdom Hearts 1.5 Remix that is being released on 13/09/2013! 1 Month and 1 Day away!! I will be there on the opening day pacing outside my local store recapping on one of SQUARE ENIX and Disney’s finest collaborations! I just cannot believe it has taken them 8 years!
Whilst the first Kingdom Hearts blew me away with everything; story, battle system, mixing Final Fantasy & Disney characters, etc, the second Kingdom Hearts was just perfect! They improved on the battle system by making it more fluid and adding the Trigger Command which stopped button bashing through combat and made you more alert, watching for the Trigger button to pop up so you could swing the battle in your favour, so massive amounts of Heartless didn’t have the same tedious feeling as the original. Another improvement was being able to fight alongside the Final Fantasy (Fleetingly but still cool) characters like; Cloud Strife, Squall Leonhart & Tifa Lockhart was brilliant, watching Cloud with his Buster Sword wreak havoc among Heartless.
I mean, who didn’t feel a tear running down their cheek when Sora had to say goodbye to Hayner, Pence and Olette. It was an emotional start to the game I must admit. I have only cried at 2 games; saying goodbye to those three, Hayne, Pence and Olette and the end movie for Final Fantasy VII: Crisis Core (UNBELIEVABLE ending – I found out tissues are used for tears as well!!). And the joy of finding your long lost best friend Rikku! I am going to prepare myself by buying a box of tissues for that part of Kingdom Hearts 1.5 Remix!
Kingdom Hearts 1.5 Remix is a fully re-mastered, HD version of Kingdom Hearts Final Mix (Not previously available in the United Kingdom or Europe) & Kingdom Hearts: Chain Of Memories. Kingdom Heart 1.5 Remix also includes high-definition cinematic story videos from Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days (Nintendo DS), the game play mechanics have been enhanced and the PlayStation 3 system trophies are available! (I know you’re as excited as I am now!!!)
I know Kingdom Hearts 3 has been announced for the PS3 (Release date to be confirmed) but I’m sure 1.5 Remix will tide me over till its release. Nailing countless amounts of Heartless and Nobodies as well as grinding so I can finally defeat the b*st*rd Sephiroth in RadiantGardens!!
I genuinely cannot wait to revisit Jack Skellington, Aladdin, Captain Jack Sparrow, Hercules and the rest of the cast again!
The first Kingdom Hearts available for the PS3! Make sure it’s in your diaries gamers! 13th September!
