==Final Mix==
 
''Kingdom Hearts II: Final Mix'' expands on the original ''[[Kingdom Hearts II]]'' with new features and plot elements.
 
   
 
===Initial previews and announcements===
 
===Initial previews and announcements===
Scans of magazine articles and preview videos appeared on numerous websites in the weeks leading up to the game's release. They included additional scenes involving the three mysterious armored entities at the end of the ''Kingdom Hearts II'' secret ending. More recent screenshots showed one of these three in combat with [[Sora]], [[Donald]] and [[Goofy]]. The being, named [[Terra]] dubbed in the game as the ''[[Terra|Enigmatic Soldier]]'' or ''Enigmatic Warrior'' by many fans (referencing a secret boss of [[Kingdom Hearts Final Mix]], the [[Xemnas|Enigmatic Man]]), is a secret boss with an enormous amount of [[HP]]. The preview videos also indicated that battling [[Roxas]] will be possible, though the context of the duel is unknown. Square has also revealed that each member of [[Organization XIII]] can be challenged in a secret area of [[Hollow Bastion]] and fought independently of the storyline.

Later screenshots showed one of these three knights in combat with [[Sora]], [[Donald Duck|Donald]], and [[Goofy]].
 
Voice-acting on ''Final Mix'' was announced to be mostly in English, with Japanese subtitles, like [[Kingdom Hearts: Final Mix]]. Several new scenes, however, use Japanese voice-acting.
 
 
===New features===
 
Some new features were confirmed by the game's release:
 
 
*Members of [[Organization XIII]] that were eliminated in [[Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories]] can be found and fought in the various worlds of ''Final Mix''. They each use different fighting tactics from the ones they employed in ''Chain of Memories''. They include [[Vexen]], [[Larxene]], [[Marluxia]], [[Lexaeus]], and [[Zexion]].
 
 
*[[Zexion]]'s weapon is revealed - a large book called a "lexicon", which he can use to trap his enemies in an alternate reality.
 
 
*An area of [[Radiant Garden]] can be accessed that houses a simulation of battles with each member of Organization XIII. This is a separate feature from the secret battles with the ''Chain of Memories'' Organization members in that the simulation allows the player to repeat any battle with an Organization member as often as they like. The simulation features highly powered-up Organization members, similar to the level bonuses offered to enemies in the [[Hades Cup|Hades Paradox Cup]].
 
 
*New weapons and accessories, including a replica of [[Lexaeus]]' tomahawk for [[Donald]], a copy of [[Vexen]]'s shield for [[Goofy]], and a crown for Sora.
 
 
*A "theater mode" - menus where previously viewed cutscenes can be rewatched with English and Japanese voices by pressing L2 and R2.
 
 
*New cutscenes based from the Kingdom Hearts II novels were added: Some involving [[Roxas]], including scenes of him conversing with [[Axel]] in [[Twilight Town]] while wearing the Organization's signature black robes. There are also additional scenes of Roxas and [[Riku]], including shots of their second battle, where Riku takes on the form of [[Ansem, Seeker of Darkness|Xehanort's Heartless]], Namine leaving with Axel, and the Organization discussing their plans and commenting on incidents like Axel's death.
 
 
*A new secret ending video titled ''[[Birth By Sleep]]'', featuring a number of new characters whose relation to the main series remains unexplained.
 
 
*A new Drive Form Called "Limit Form" Has Abilities From Kingdom Hearts.
 
 
Secret features can be accessed in ''Final Mix'' by clearing [[Re:Chain of Memories]] first or Clearing "Final Mix" first then Re Chain Of Memories. Clearing ''Final Mix'' can also unlock secrets in Re:Chain of Memories it goes around.
 
 
===Better Compatibility and The Truth===
 
 
The only way to play Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix+ and Kingdom Hearts Final Mix on the U.S version of the PS2 is if you buy a Swap Magic, because Nomura said Final Mix games are only for Japan and the US.
 
 
===Unlockables, Additions and Changes===

Latest revision as of 00:50, February 20, 2020

Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix+ is a Japan-exclusive 2007 combo pack of Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix, the "Final Mix" version of Kingdom Hearts II and Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories, a remake of Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories. Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix features new cutscenes, abilities, weapons, enemies, areas, and a new form, while Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories features new cards, cutscenes and mini-games.

AnnouncementEdit

Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix was rumored in middle-late 2006. Though Nomura did not confirm its development, he stated that if a Final Mix version were to be created for other countries, he would use a "trump card".

In September 2006, Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix was finally announced, along with a PlayStation 2 remake of Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories, entitled Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories, with full 3-D rendering and voice acting. The two would be packed together, creating Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix+; Re:Chain of Memories was later released in America as a standalone title.

The remake was released on March 29, 2007, hitting stores all across Japan. It was announced late 2013 that Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix would be released in a compilation that also includes the Final Mix edition of Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep, as well as the cinematics of Re: Coded. It was released globally in late 2014 under the name Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX.

Initial previews and announcementsEdit

Scans of magazine articles and preview videos appeared on numerous websites in the weeks leading up to the game's release. They included additional scenes involving the three mysterious armored knights at the end of the Kingdom Hearts II secret ending. Later screenshots showed one of these three knights in combat with Sora, Donald, and Goofy.

The being serves as a secret boss with incredible power and an enormous amount of HP, much like the Unknown from Kingdom Hearts Final Mix. The preview videos also showed that battling Roxas would be possible as opposed to the cutscene in the original game. Square also revealed that data replicas of each member of Organization XIII could be challenged in a secret area at Hollow Bastion and fought independently of the storyline.

Voice-acting on Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix was announced to be mostly in English, with Japanese subtitles, like Kingdom Hearts Final Mix, but the new scenes used Japanese voice-acting when viewed in Theater Mode and were voiceless in-game, but with Japanese subtitles. This is most likely due to the new scenes featuring Organization XIII members from Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories, who did not yet have English voice actors.
