Kingdom Hearts Re: Chain of Memories Is Coming To North America Without Final Mix Plus

khr The good news is Square Enix isn’t going to leave the PlayStation 2 remake of Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories in Japan. We’re going to see it fully localized with Haley Joel Osment reprising his role as Sora on December 2nd. Unfortunately, this release isn’t the same package Japan got. Kingdom Hearts Re: Chain of Memories was originally a bonus disc bundled with Kingdom Hearts II: Final Mix Plus, an extended version of Kingdom Hearts II with English voice acting. Since we’re getting half the package we’re playing half the price. Kingdom Hearts Re: Chain of Memories will only cost $29.99. Kingdom Hearts II: Final Mix Plus originally retailed for 7,980 yen ($75 according to today’s exchange rate) when it came out last March.


Square Enix mentions Kingdom Hearts Re: Chain of Memories has four mini-games and unless they’re being shuffled for the North American remake all of them are with Winnie the Pooh. Here are videos of Whirlwind Plunge, Veggie Panic, Tigger’s Jump-a-thon, and Balloon Glider.

    Isn’t exactly a chocolate bar…but IS a Hershey’s Kiss.

    Lol, this is so stupid. I urge people to just import final mix+ and get both games for the same price they are retailing this.

  • Simon

    its 29.99.. i am getting this!! yay one more game for december

  • James

    Will be picking this up. First off, don’t have an import PS2 or a modified one. Secondly, I finished KH2 and am ready to move onto the game that I missed entirely on GBA.

  • CriticalFury

    the gba game was pretty dam good but seeing it as a playstation 2 title just makes it look so much awesome. i use to love using the cloud summon card on the gba version.

  • nika

    nice. I’ll buy it. playing this on the ps2 seems like much more fun then on the gba. but I’m still not sure wether I like the card-battle-system.

  • Mikael

    Better come to Europe, but then again no excuse to not release it here as the KH series got platinum

  • RuzE+

    NICE! Next is the handheld ones.
