'Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 Remix' will include an updated version of 'Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix' on PlayStation 2 and 'Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep Final Mix' on PSP, along with 'Kingdom Hearts Re:coded' on DS.
'Kingdom Hearts Re:coded' will not be playable, but will be presented in a movie-like fashion, putting all the cut scenes together to tell the story.
The other two games included will be fully playable and remastered in HD. This will also mark the first time either of the games' 'Final Mix' versions will release outside of Japan. The 'Final Mix' is essentially a director's cut, including some rebalanced elements, and usually some extra features.
'Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix' followed a very similar format, including 'Kingdom Hearts' and 'Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories' on the PlayStation 2, and 'Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days' for the DS. Again, like in the newer compilation, the DS game is an unplayable cinematic.
All of this is to refresh gamers on the story of the 'Kingdom Hearts' series before 'Kingdom Hearts III' releases on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. It has been said that gamers will have to wait some time for the third numbered entry in the series, so hopefully this will hold fans over until the next generation of 'Kingdom Hearts' becomes available.
