This new Kingdom Hearts HD trailer brings back memories

A look at Re:Chain and 358/2

In just a few short weeks you’ll be able to play a trio of Kingdom Hearts games in HD in the form of HD 1.5 ReMIX, which features the original Kingdom Hearts, Re:Chain of Memories, and a movie version of 358/2 (okay, so the last one isn’t fully playable). If you’re so inclined can take a look at the latter two in this new video from Square Enix, and man does it get me in the mood to journey with Sora and company.

The first Kingdom Hearts game, and to a lesser extent Chain of Memories, were among my fondest gaming memories in the early 2000s. If you’re confused with the “darkness hearts unlock my heart of darkness” plot or otherwise want to see a complete history of the Kingdom Hearts franchise, check out my full retrospective of every game — I even try to make sense of the narrative at the end!
