Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix includes both Kingdom Hearts Final Mix and Re:Chain of Memories in high-definition and with trophy support. Additionally, the collection features a cinematic remake of Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days, including high-definition cutscenes from the original game plus new scenes; the 358/2 Days cinematic also has trophy support. Ideas for a remastered collection of Kingdom Hearts games were first revealed in August 2011, with the collection formally announced in September 2012. Kingdom Hearts Final Mix, in addition to being created from the ground up due to lost assets from the original game, had the most adjustments made to its gameplay, including adding Reaction Commands first introduced in Kingdom Hearts II and allowing the camera to be moved with the right thumb stick.
A second collection, Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX, was released in 2014 while a third collection, Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue, was released for the PlayStation 4 in 2017. 1.5 Remix was released in a single, combined collection with 2.5 Remix on the PlayStation 4 in March 2017.

The opening scene for the game upon starting a new file will freeze and leave a black screen at the end. To fix, rename the OPN.pam in "PS3_GAME\USRDIR\KH1Movie\en" to something else.
