Though only half of what it could have been, Square Enix has decided to release part of the Kingdom Hearts II: Final Mix+, minus the Kingdom Hearts II part. Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories is a full 3D rendition of the Game Boy Advance game released in 2004 and was originally part of the Final Mix+ in Japan.
Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories will be released in North America on December 2, 2008. The story features Sora and companions meeting a mysterious man who leads them into a familiar looking castle following the events of the first Kingdom Hearts game. Along with Sora, Riku is also featured as a playable character in Chain of Memories. This version will feature the voice cast from the other PlayStation 2 releases, such as David Gallagher and Haley Joel Osment. The game will also contain four new mini-games.
Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories has yet to be rated by the ESRB. It will be available for a MSRP of $29.99 this December.
