"Kingdom Hearts is a difficult franchise to follow. By this point, it's spread out across seven games, no two of which were on the same system. In several cases, the games were spread out across systems belonging to competing companies. If you wanted to follow Kingdom Heart's convoluted metaverse, you needed to have both Sony and Nintendo systems and a shocking amount of patience. Mercifully, the Kingdom Hearts ReMIX titles have solidified the franchise onto one system. With the exception of the Nintendo 3DS-exclusive Dream Drop Distance, Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 Remix means that the entire franchise is now available on the PlayStation 3. In addition to giving the franchise a singular home, Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 Remix is also the first time that the Final Mix releases for Kingdom Hearts II and Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep have been available in English. This might not sound like a big change, but for Kingdom Hearts fans, it's enough to breathe new life into some rapidly aging games."
