Video: Hands-on with Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix on PS3

33w 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,...

115w ago - Today Producer Jose Araiza has announced that Festival of Hearts is coming to Free Realms via PSN tomorrow, with the details below as follows:

Nothing says love more than the Stone Abomination right? No?

Oh... well... that's probably because you have yet to hear the tale behind the Festival of Hearts in Free Realms. Sure, everyone knows that Festival of Hearts celebrates love, but not many know the tale of how the festival originated. This is a tale of love that transcends time, and has been retold from generation to generation all around the land.

Long ago, two young pixies - Rylan and Arianna - met while adventuring in the place we now call Merry Vale. Upon first glance, they were smitten with each other and planted a flower together at the spot where they first met.

The two young pixies vowed to see each other every day, meeting near their flower in Merry Vale. Every time they met, Rylan would bring a present to his sweetheart; sometimes flowers or chocolates, other times balloons or hand-printed poems. Their romance was the stuff of legend, until...

But I'd better not spoil the fun. I'll let you guys find out for yourselves starting February 7th! Log into Free Realms and find out what happens to these two lovebirds....
