Shortly after Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 launched earlier this week, players discovered that you were rewarded with free PS4 themes upon beating each game within the collection. However, at least in North America, players were charged $2.99 USD when they tried to download them. This pricing issue was fixed today (head to Extras once you’ve beaten a game).

According to Reddit user hiimnewhere123, “For anyone wondering if the themes have music or anything special, they don’t. Icons are normal and the PS4 system music is default. Just 2 different static images when you move the menu up or down.”

If you want more Kingdom Hearts, the 1.5 + 2.5 collection comes to PS4 in March.
