New Kingdom Hearts HD Trailer Shows Off Remastered 1.5 and 2.5 Games
With the date of Kingdom Hearts 3 getting closer and closer (whenever it is), Square Enix has released a Kingdom Hearts HD trailer that shows off the remastered 1.5 and 2.5 versions of the first two mainline Kingdom Hearts games, or more specifically their cutscenes that show off some of the series’s best moments.
Kingdom Hearts fans have been clamoring for the third entry in the series for a long time, ever since Kingdom Hearts 2 released over a decade ago back in 2005.
Since that year, the series has gotten numerous other games, including two other remastered remakes of the first and second games that came with some of the ancillary games that revolve around those titles (such as the 1.5 remix getting the first Kingdom Hearts game and its immediate sequel, Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep).
The Kingdom Hearts HD trailer is actually a very short one, only around 37 seconds. The trailer was first released at Jump Festa 2017 in Japan, and in those 37 seconds, as said before, shows us a variety of intense and dramatic moments from the series, ranging from Sora’s fights with his friend-turned-rival Riku to other such moments.
Kingdom Hearts 3 hasn’t gotten very much information released about it barring a few small trailers that have been released in the last few years (such as one at E3 2015), showing off the combat and a number of other characters.
Kingdom Hearts 3 is apparently also going to be the first Kingdom Hearts game to come to the Xbox, though the other previous games before it, such as many of the different collections, will not be coming along with it.
That entire effort follows along with the release of many of the more recent Final Fantasy games to come on the Xbox, such as the Final Fantasy 13 trilogy, Final Fantasy Type-0 HD, and more recently Final Fantasy 15, in an effort to boost sales of the series through releasing them onto other consoles. While it seems to be doing fairly well, Playstation is still the preferred platform of many Square Enix fans.
