Kingdom Hearts is no stranger to HD re-releases. Starting with Kingdom Hearts 1.5 for PlayStation 3 in 2013, almost every game in the series has been playable in HD on either the PlayStation 4 or PlayStation 3.

Today, Square-Enix announced a new HD Kingdom Hearts collection; Kingdom Hearts -The Story So Far-. This game is the combination of both Kingdom Hearts titles already available on PlayStation 4.

In KINGDOM HEARTS - The Story So Far -, Keyblade wielders can relive the magical adventures of Sora, Donald Duck, Goofy and friends as they attempt to stop the Heartless invasion that threatens their universe. Fans will travel to iconic Disney worlds and join forces with beloved Disney and FINAL FANTASY® characters in order to fight back against the threat of darkness and bring back light to all worlds.

The compilation includes the following games:
KINGDOM HEARTS HD 1.5+2.5 ReMIX
  • KINGDOM HEARTS FINAL MIX
  • KINGDOM HEARTS Re:Chain of Memories
  • KINGDOM HEARTS 358/2 Days (HD Remastered cinematics)
  • KINGDOM HEARTS II FINAL MIX
  • KINGDOM HEARTS Birth by Sleep Final MIX
  • KINGDOM HEARTS Re:coded (HD Remastered cinematics)
KINGDOM HEARTS HD 2.8 FINAL CHAPTER PROLOGUE
  • KINGDOM HEARTS Dream Drop Distance HD
  • KINGDOM HEARTS 0.2 Birth by Sleep –A fragmentary passage–
  • KINGDOM HEARTS χ Back Cover (movie)

Kingdom Hearts -The Story So Far- will release on October 30th. The box will contain two discs, one for Kingdom Hearts 1.5+2.5, and one for Kingdom Hearts 2.8. Currently, it is only planned to release in the US.

Typical Squeenix.

But I'm fine with that. It's nice to have all of them together to catch up (or refresh the good old memories) until Feb next year.

Seems a bit weird to release this now, especially with KH3 on the horizon and this basically just being a combination of the two compilation games already on the PS4. Still, I'd imagine it'd be convenient for people who want to get into the series in the future.

Also, "The Story So Far" is a refreshingly basic title, especially given the titles of most of the games in the series.

Talk about a cashgrab. Was this really needed?
I think so...I was talking about playing them and where to start and what collection had what games, this is awesome for me, I only played the 1st one on PS2 and $40 is a steal for so many games.

Both? So it's just KH 1.5+2.5 and 2.8 or only 1.5 and 2.5?

1.5 + 2.5 and 2.8. Both.

But they were already all on PS4 anyway.

I bought 1.5+2.5 and 2.8 already so not for me.
Still haven't even played them yet.
If KH3 ever releases then this would be nice for newcomers

As the franchise has been around for over a decade and a half, it's reasonable to assume that there are a lot of people relatively new to gaming that may never have had the chance to play a KH game before. With the new game due soon, a collection like this gives people an easy way to experience the preceding titles - and subsequently makes the new game less off-putting to some of the would-be consumers.

I only ever played the first title on PS2 ...if I thought I'd have the time to play through all of them, I'd do it via this collection rather than any previous releases.

I'm such a big big KH fan but now they're really milking that tit dry till powder is all you get. There's no point whatsoever for this release
