When Square Enix released Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix+ in Japan, the little extra bit that gave it the plus was a PS2 remake of Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories, which was originally released on the GBA. Sadly, we never got either Final Mix in North America, but at least we get the remake of Chain of Memories as Kingdom Hearts Re: Chain of Memories for those of us that never played it on the GBA or just feel like going through Castle Oblivion again.

The PS2 remake of Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories that was an extra in the Japanese release of Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix+ has finally hit North American shelves for the low price of $29.99, but Square Enix is not content to rest on its laurels. In the same announcement, it has been announced that we will be seeing Kingdom Hearts: 358/2 Days on this side of the pacific. There has been no word yet of a localization of the PSP game Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep or Kingdom Hearts: Coded, which is only available on DoCoMo mobile phones at the moment. Though it is likely we’ll see Birth by Sleep, Coded is highly unprobable unless it receives a handheld port a la Parasite Eve: the 3rd Birthday, which so far, has also not been confirmed for North American release in either form.
Stories of a North American release of Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories for the PlayStation 2 have been floating around the web, but they were confirmed today via a press release. Originally packaged as one of the bonuses in the Japanese Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix+, the remake features full 3D and voice acting. The game fits between Kingdom Hearts and Kingdom Hearts II, and it shows the beginning of Sora’s dealings with the shadowy Organization XIII. This version will also feature four mini-games not present in the original GBA game. No date has been set, but the price will be $29.99 when it eventually ships.
