Prepare for the ultimate E3 teaser, Kingdom Hearts fans. Sqaure Enix has just released a brand new trailer for Kingdom Hearts 2.5 ReMIX, which will be available December 2 for the PlayStation 3. The trailer opens with a scene from the Kingdom Hearts 1.5 ReMIX along with the words, "One act closes," and as it begins with one act the trailer ends with another. The last seconds of the trailer tease Kingdom Hearts III. It's enough to drive a Kingdom Hearts fan insane.
The problem that many fans, including myself, will have with the Kingdom Hearts III teaser is that it's done with the Japanese voices. Thus, that ominous sounding voice which may be recognizable to Japanese fans is completely unknown to western audiences. Is he a familiar face, or a mysterious stranger? Hopefully word will come over from Japan and we'll have a better understanding of what's going on.
Perhaps we're getting ahead of ourselves, however, because there's a good amount of great Kingdom Hearts 2.5 ReMIX content in the trailer too. For instance, the fight towards the beginning featuring Sora and the man in armor is Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix content. That's notable, because Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix hasn't been released in North America. It will be the first time many players get to experience it. 2.5 ReMIX also includes Birth by Sleep Final ReMIX content too. Again, Kingdom Hearts fans have a lot to look forward to.
Unfortunately, it'll be a bit of a wait until everyone can get their hands on it. Kingdom Hearts 2.5 ReMIX is now confirmed for a December 2 release date in North America, December 5 in Europe. It'll cost a very fair price of $39.99 and it will be exclusive to the PlayStation 3. E3 does its job of once again getting fans excited, before reminding them they have a long wait ahead of them. The worst part? Odds are this is all of Kingdom Hearts III we'll see during E3 this year.
Watch the full trailer below and make sure to stay all the way until the end. Also, take a look at a bunch of new 2.5 ReMIX screenshots in the gallery.
