7w ago - Square Enix Associate Product Manager Mat Kishimoto announced today that Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX is coming to PS3 in 2014 alongside a video trailer below.
To quote: Thanks to all of your support, Kingdom Hearts has sold more than 20 million units worldwide! In celebration of this, and with absolute pleasure, we're proud to announce that Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX will launch globally in 2014!
Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX is the follow-up compilation to Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX, and will be available exclusively on PS3. It will include the following goodies:
• Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix - previously on PS2 and exclusive to Japan
• Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep Final Mix - previously on PSP and exclusive to Japan
• Kingdom Hearts Re:coded (HD remastered cinematics)
I'm so excited to be able to see all of these games included as a part of this compilation, but personally, the most exciting title may be Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep Final Mix.
As many may not have been able to experience its awesomeness, it's truly one of the more phenomenal games, and now completely rebuilt in HD - you'll be able to play it on your big-screen TV for the first time.
12w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements announced today that Valiant Hearts: The Great War is coming to PS4 and PS3 in 2014.
To quote: Ubisoft has revealed one of its latest projects built on UbiArt Framework - known for its use in the marvelous Rayman games.
Titled Valiant Hearts: The Great War, this puzzle adventure will follow five characters from different countries as they struggle to survive one of the most devastating events in human history: the first World War.
Ubisoft Montpellier is handling development of Valiant Hearts, and aims to launch on PS3 and PS4 sometime next year.
In Valiant Hearts, the five characters are drawn together by one common cause: reuniting a young German soldier with his lost love. As the five suffer through the unimaginable dangers of the trenches, they're guided by a single canine companion - a German dog separated from its owner during an artillery attack.
This dog will not only help the characters survive, but also serve as a guide to players during both action sequences and puzzles.
The art of Valiant Hearts tackles the tragedy of the war with an almost unassuming innocence. Characters are drawn as caricatures of each nation, and the battlefields are stylized exaggerations of their real-world counterparts....

14w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements shared a video today that goes hands-on with Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix on PS3.
To quote: When we are older, you'll understand what I meant when I said, 'No, I don't think life is quite that simple.'
So sang Hikaru Utada in her beloved single that opened the original Kingdom Hearts in September of 2002. And so she sings again in this upcoming HD update that famously twisted together the fates of Square Enix characters with Disney icons.
And the lyrics offer a pointed commentary on the re-release, as the narrative of Kingdom Hearts was never quite that simple. And perhaps that's why we love it so much.
Kingdom Hearts begins innocently enough, with a young boy named Sora spending time with his friends, Riku and Kairi. But soon their world, and perhaps all worlds, are threatened by a malignant darkness. Sora, as our intrepid hero, is promptly pulled into the intrigue.
Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix is an incredible collection for fans of the series, and a perfect entrypoint for those that missed the original. It includes the "Final Mix" version of the first Kingdom Hearts, which was never launched in the United States.
This version includes new enemies, items, and other assorted goodies. But now,...
