We certainly loved Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX for the PS3, so we're pretty excited for the enhanced re-release of Kingdom Hearts II, also coming to the PS3.
Today, Square Enix announced a few more Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX details, confirmed release date of "later this year" and sent over some new screens too.
