Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix is the newest in a long line of last generation titles being remastered for the current generation of HD consoles. Like many of these remasters, Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix is a collection of several games—in this case, Kingdom Hearts: Final Mix and Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories. It also comes with a compilation movie using a remastered version of the cutscenes in Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days (which we covered earlier this week). But while most HD collections feature only visual updates, Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix goes one step beyond to add in gameplay tweaks as well as new content never seen before outside of Japan to make this the definitive version of these games.
