Sony has just revealed that there will be a limited edition version for their upcoming remastered collection of Kingdom Hearts games called Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX. The limited edition will be available for anyone who pre-orders the game, meaning that you get upgraded to the limited edition for no extra charge.
So what comes with the limited edition of the game? Well… a pin. Yup. If you pre-order the game, you get a 4.27 cm pin of Sora and Mickey that will apparently be in extremely limited quantity. Check out the image below.
In all honesty, the pre-order incentive with this one is pretty lame. With Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX you got the game in a really nice sleeved, hardcover booklet that had a bunch of great concept art for the game. With this it looks like you only get a keychain. Not only is that a downgrade, but it’s gonna look especially pathetic when you put the two games next to each other on a shelf. Kingdom Hearts II is my favorite of the two original games, and now it’s gonna look like a chump compared to the first one!
Kingdom Hearts is all set to get a remastered treatment again this year with a new collection called Kingdom Hearts 2.5 HD ReMIX for PlayStation 3. We knew it was coming sometime this year, but now it has an official release date of December 2nd.
Kingdom Hearts 2.5 HD ReMIX contains Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix, Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep and cutscenes from Kingdom Hearts Re:coded.

Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX is making its way to the PlayStation 3 later this year, which packages Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix, Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep Final Mix and HD cinematics of Kingdom Hearts Re:coded.
It’s a ways off, but to tide you over Sqaure Enix has released some brand new screenshots that you can check out in the gallery below.
Seeing these screenshots reminds me how much I absolutely adore this franchise and I can’t wait to dive back into the spectacular Kingdom Hearts II and experience both Birth By Sleep and Re:coded for the first time. The mixture of the playful Disney world and the darker Final Fantasy world is one I can’t get enough of, and I can’t believe an entire console generation went by without ever getting a traditional third entry in the series.
