Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 ReMIX
PS Plus Free Games Predictions For February 2019
Every month, those who subscribe to Sony’s online gaming subscription are also gifted a few free games each month to sweeten the deal a bit. There is also usually one larger AAA title to headline the list to keep players happy.
For February 2019, we wouldn’t be surprised to see the Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 ReMIX collection being offered with all the hype of Kingdom Hearts III releasing this month.
This collection includes Kingdom Hearts Final Mix, Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories, Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days, Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix, Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep Final Mix, and Kingdom Hearts Re:coded.
Both Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days and Kingdom Hearts Re:coded include HD cut-scenes for the first time in this bundle as well.
While this collection released in March 2017, it has gone on sale in the past for as little as $19.99. It also is a PS4 exclusive, and often Sony opts to include those in its free games lists as there is no worry about competing prices with the title on other platforms.
However, the biggest inclination that Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 ReMIX could be on PS Plus is simply because an influx of people will be either returning to the Kingdom Hearts story or being introduced to it for the first time with the release of Kingdom Hearts III on Jan. 25.
Some might argue Sony wouldn’t want to offer the collection for free since more people might be inclined to buy it.
However, the fact that these titles are prequels to the events in Kingdom Hearts III and their plots are not mainline and instead follow the Dark Seeker Saga points to the likely probability most players would not purchase this collection after finishing Kingdom Hearts III.
Instead, they could be pleasantly surprised with an offering of six sub-plot Kingdom Hearts stories to enjoy for free which would only spurn more series support from those new to Kingdom Hearts.
