For those who’ve picked up the 1.5 + 2.5 ReMIX release for PS4, you may be a little annoyed that all 9 chapters now come in Kingdom Hearts -The Story So Far-. For those like me who’ve never played Kingdom Hearts – what have I been doing? – it may be a great opportunity to get into the series. The long-awaited Kingdom Hearts III will release next January on the 25th. Here are some of the latest details.
