Today, Square-Enix has announced details of the Collector’s Edition of Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX. The HD 2.5 REMIX is a remastered compilation of Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix and Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep Final Mix and will release in North America on December 2nd and Europe on 5th December 2014 exclusively on the PlayStation3.
The Collector’s Edition of Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX will cost you quite a few coins but for $99.99 USD / £79.99 GBP / €99.99 EUR you get a heck of a lot of stuff:
- Shadow Heartless plush toy – Included will be a 24 cm (9.4 Inch) tall plush toy of the classic Kingdom Hearts foe. Although a foe, he doesn’t feel like one he’s so soft and cuddly and cute
- 30-page art book – This art book includes a brand new never before seen sketch from Kingdom Hearts series director – Tetsuya Nomura. With 30 pages of artistic goodness covering concept and finalized artwork of heroes, villains, worlds, and weapons, this artbook also includes concept animation storyboards from Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep and Kingdom Hearts Re:coded. The front and back cover were designed to mirror the artbook from the Limited Edition of Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX, so if you’re a true collector, it’s definitely not something to *ahem* Birth by Sleep on. The only way to obtain this artbook will be in this Collector’s Edition!
- Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX and Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX game discs – You get both HD remastered games with all new alternative disc artwork of everyone’s favorite protagonist – Sora
- HD Collector’s steelbook case – The steelbook case will house both game discs and features artwork from both titles on the outside and inside of the case
- Exclusive Disney collectible pin – Perfect for you Disney pin badge collectors or those that like to collect Kingdom Hearts merchandise, this pin which is manufactured in limited quantities features Sora and Mickey Mouse back to back, with the iconic keyblade and a Mickey Mouse dangler. Made out of a soft enamel coating on metal, this pin stretches out to 1.68 inches.
The best of the lot is probably the Shadow Heartless plush toy if you ask me but with the addition of the art book and the Steelbook there is something for every taste.
