Alternate Versions

The Final Mix version of Birth by Sleep was later remastered in HD as part of Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 Remix on the PS3 and was also released outside of Japan for the first time. This version would greatly modify the controls for the PS3's control system, as well removing the previous multiplayer features as this is now a console instead of a handheld game (places like the Mirage Arena are now single-player only). It would later be ported over to the PS4 and released as part of Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 Remix. See more »
