Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 Remix title screen is a time sink dream come true


Can’t hold all these RPGs

I’m thinking back to when I beat every single one of these Kingdom Hearts games pictured below, and all that comes to mind is multi-day marathons. Whether it was a winter break from school or a pizza-ridden dorm-fest, playing nearly every main Kingdom Hearts game was a joy.

And whether you’re playing them for the first time or reliving those memories, the title screen fromKingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 Remix is daunting. It contains six games (two are movies) all on one disc, and it’s due out on March 28 in the west — which is just enough time to beat Zelda. I recommend going in order of course so you can experience the story the way it was released, but some people have taken to playing Birth by Sleep(the first game in the timeline) before anything else, which also works.

It only took 15 years since the original came out, but we finally have a definitive “Final Mix” (versions mostly relegated to Japan with new content) collection.
