Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD ReMix released last month, but the new strategy guide for the game didn’t release until this week. I think it’s best we don’t ask why. I’m sure many thought they wouldn’t need the new strategy guide, especially if you’re like me and you already have guides for the games within. However, a bit has changed about each game, especially Chain of Memories (insert a “well, duh” here), making a new strategy guide a bit of a necessity. I have a lot of nostalgia for the original guides, as the strategy guide for Kingdom Hearts was the first strategy guide I bought after I re-entered the world of gaming with a PS2.
To celebrate the release of the new Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD ReMix strategy guide, let’s look at the original strategy guides for Kingdom Hearts and Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories, the two playable games in the collection. Note how well used the original KH guide is below. I even ripped the sucker, which did sprout a couple of tears at the time and a Darth Vader-styled “NOOOOOOOO!”
