Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX

Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 Remix has been officially rated by the ESRB which is the Entertainment Software Ratings Board that provides ratings guidelines for any video games that are sold.

The rating that the ESRB has given the game hasn’t changed from the last one, and Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 Remix has been given a rating of E10+ (Everyone 10+) for Fantasy Violence, Mild Blood, and Use of Alcohol.

The rating describes:

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.

It is unknown of Kingdom Hearts II will have the same edits as it did before or that it will be the “uncensored” version that the Japanese region had.

Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 Remix will be released on October 2, 2014 for Japan. December 2, 2014 for North America and December 5, 2014 for Europe.
