Kingdom Hearts II Final Remix
Kingdom Hearts II Final Remix is an action RPG which combines characters and worlds from Disney films as well as Square Enix's Final Fantasy series. The game was first released in 2005 on the PlayStation 2, then remastered in HD as part of the Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 Remix collection for the PlayStation 3 in 2014, and again on the PlayStation 4 in 2017. The game can be played in either first or third person, where players attack enemies in a hack-and-slash style gameplay, while upgrading and accessing new abilities by accumulating experience points.
A year following the events of the original Kingdom Hearts, where Sora, Donald, and Goofy have been in suspended animation to obtain their lost memories. They soon find themselves in Twilight Town, where they are sent on their next quest by King Mickey.
The original Kingdom Hearts II received critical acclaim with an average score of 89%, praised for its engaging story, immersive worlds realistically recreated from their respective Disney films, graphics, and improvements over its predecessor.
While the game can be challenging at times, particularly during the beginning of the Critical difficulty playthrough, as well as some mini-games and boss battles, the Platinum is still very doable for any average gamer. However, a lot of time will be required. The Platinum can either be earned in one playthrough on Critical difficulty, or split into two, making things easier but longer. There are no missable trophies to worry about.
Expect anywhere between 75 to over 100 hours, depending on whether you choose to perform one or two playthroughs, as well as having any previous experience with the game.
NOTE: The trophies on the PS4 have a separate list from those on the PS3.
Critical mode, the game's most difficulty mode, is available from the beginning. So if you wish to unlock the Platinum in one playthrough, you can. However, be warned that some of the trophies can be quite frustrating on Critial mode, especially for beginner players. If this is your first time, we recommend splitting your playthrough in two: one on Beginner (or Standard) difficulty and unlocking nearly all the trophies, then a second on Critical just to clear the game.
There are no missable trophies to worry about, so just play through the story and enjoy the game. You'll be unlocking some story-related trophies, as well as a few others naturally along the way.
Next, it's time to put in more time and effort in unlocking all those miscellaneous trophies. These can be done in any order you wish, though we recommend starting with completing all the puzzles, collecting all the maps, and completing the mission entries in Jiminy's Journal, all the while getting Sora up to Level 99 for the Level Master trophy. Once Sora's level has been maxed out, you can start going after the more challenging trophies, such as those related to the optional boss battles. Be sure to check out the Kingdom Hearts II Final Remix trophy guide links under our Links tab to see what you still need and their requirements.
If you'd selected to play on Critical difficulty, then you should have the Platinum after unlocking all those miscellaneous trophies. If not, then now is the time to start your Critical run. Since you should already have all the other trophies, then you just need to play through and complete the game to unlock the Critical Competitor trophy, which will also automatically unlock any other difficulty-related trophies you still needed.
