Kingdom Hearts 3‘s story gets its conclusion this week with the release of Re:Mind, a new single-player DLC. The add-on, out now on PS4 and launching February 25 on Xbox One, looks to give fans some closure, tying up some of the loose ends of the base game. There are of course multiple versions of the DLC to buy, so we’ve put together a quick guide to which version gets you what content.
Re:Mind follows Sora’s search for Kairi, which brings him to the Keyblade Graveyard. Re:Mind will see the return of Final Fantasy characters such as Leon, Aerith, and Yuffie, who will help Riku, Aqua, and the rest of the gang in their pursuit of Sora.
The trailer ties back to Kingdom Hearts 3’s secret epilogue, as the mysterious Yozora walks towards Sora just before the game’s title appears on screen.
Here’s the official description of the DLC: “Re:Mind – the other tale that unfolded during the climax of Kingdom Hearts 3. Determined to rescue Kairi, Sora travels to the Keyblade Graveyard a short time before the final battle was to take place. Lacking a corporeal form, he traces the hearts of the seven guardians of light. Through experiencing their personal battles firsthand, Sora is about to discover truths that he has never before imagined.”
Kingdom Hearts 3 released this past January to critical acclaim. The game earned a great 8/10 in our Kingdom Hearts 3 review, with GameSpot’s Tamoor Hussain praising the exciting combat and wonderful Disney worlds and characters. Unsurprisingly, Kingdom Hearts 3’s story created more questions than answers. The overarching tale of Keyblade Wars and the collision of worlds and various timelines was every bit as confusing as you’d expect with a Kingdom Hearts game.
Re:Mind has a chance to fill in the holes and provide a satisfying conclusion to the saga. That said, it probably won’t be simple and clean (sorry). Now that Re:Mind is out, let’s take a look at the two editions to choose from.
