Kingdom Hearts -- the celebrated video game collaboration between Disney and Final Fantasy maker Square Enix -- is several years removed from its core numbered PlayStation 2 entries, and has instead spent the last few years releasing a variety of lesser titles for handheld platforms. But with a third main Kingdom Hearts game rumored for years, Square Enix seems interested in reigniting interest in the series, and will do so via next year's Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD ReMIX.

Coming to PlayStation 3, the set includes upgraded high definition versions of the Final Mix release of the original Kingdom Hearts and Kingdom Hearts: Re:Chain of Memories (the enhanced version of the Game Boy Advance original), as well as the cinematics from Nintendo DS release Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days. Sadly, there's no Kingdom Hearts II in the mix, but chances are we'll see another HD package down the line.

No word yet on a North American release, but seeing as all three games were released here on their original platforms -- and performed well -- there's a good chance we'll also receive the updated package sometime next year.
