This is a compilation of action role-playing games, based on the Kingdom Hearts franchise, in which players assume the roles of young warriors that travel through fantastical worlds to stop a destructive power. Players use key-shaped swords and magic spells to defeat classic Disney villains (e.g., Pete, Jafar, Ursula) and creatures (e.g., dragons, magical armor) in melee-style combat. Battles are accompanied by cries of pain and colorful bursts of light; enemies disappear amid colorful orbs when defeated. Some sequences allow players to fire eggs and arrows at enemies from a first- and third-person perspective. A handful of cutscenes depict characters struck by magical swords and blasts. One sequence depicts red blood stains on some cursed coins. There is a scene where a character briefly drinks from a bottle of wine.

Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX, the upcoming HD collection containing remasters of Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix and Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep Final Mix, as well as Kingdom Hearts Re:coded HD Cinematic Story Videos, releases on October 2, 2014 in Japan, December 2 in North America, December 4 in Australia, and December 5 in Europe.
