Square Enix is bringing the first Kingdom Hearts, Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories, and Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days to the PS3 in HD as part of a new KH compilation called Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX.

The version of Kingdom Hearts is the Japanese language "Final Mix" version, and the game, along with Chain of Memories, will have trophy support. This latest ReMIX will be out next year in Japan.

No BBS or 2??? :cry: But still pretty cool.

I'm happy to hear that it's KH Final Mix... but otherwise, what a load of crap: CoM sucked (I'm guessing it'll be the Re: CoM, which still sucked) and 358/2 was the most tedious 18 hours before becoming worthwhile. I'll probably get it just for KH though.

I'd much rather get KH 1 & 2 and BbS. Actually, I'd rather get KH3 so they can conclude this clusterfuck of a story.

People were commenting that the reason it's called 1.5 is that there will be another one called 2.5 that will have 2, Recoded, and BBS.

If that's the case then I will most definitely pass on this and pick up 2.5 when it is released (will probably be some time next year).

I can see SE doing this in preparation for a 2013-2014 KH3 release. The trend nowadays is an HD collection to peak the general population's interest before releasing the current gen sequel.

I think we all assumed as much. But what I'm upset about is that the two games accompanying KH1 suck and aren't worth the HD treatment. But with 2.5, I'd buy it day one just for KHII and BbS.

I still wonder if they started on KH3... and if they did, when did they start (after KH2 or BbS)? It seems really hate to release a KH. But whatever the case, if it is coming, I pray it's not a Wii U exclusive (completely out of the blue, like Bayonetta 2 was).

There's been an update and KH 358/2 will NOT be part of this collection. There are cut scenes from 358/2 that will be re-made in HD and be included, but not the actual game itself.

Now to answer this question. No one knows if they've started to work on KH3. My guess is they haven't though. It's known that the team who works on the main KH titles is working on FF Versus XIII. And who the Fuck knows when and if that game will ever see the light of day. Supposedly they're going to announce something about Versus next year. But I wouldn't hold your breath. We probably wont be seeing KH3 till the next console generation.

Not sure how I feel about that... is it just going to be the FMVs or the in-game cutscenes as well? The gameplay in 358/2 would benefit greatly from dual analog sticks, but still not sure that would have made the game worth playing. I'll say that even though I didn't like 358/2 very much, the final 2-3 hours of that game were really powerful.

I think Versus XIII is likely going to become the next Duke Nukem Forever.

Does Disney not care about Kingdom Hearts, or is Square the only company on earth that can grab Disney by the labia and tell them to sit and wait?

I can't believe Square is so adamantly against KH3. And who knows if this collection will ever even release stateside (seeing as how final mix is include, it's pretty doubtful). I swear, I am so confused as to why Disney lets Square drag their license across pavement by sitting on it and doing nothing except the occasional handheld spinoff.

Kingdom Hearts 3 and a console full fledged Pokemon rpg are the two biggest "I know, millions of dollars, whatever, fan demand, yeah I know...we're working on other things...and making that would be REALLY hard and/or time consuming...can't you just play this handheld?" I've ever seen.

agreed they have pretty much shit all over this story to the point i have no idea wtf is going on.its been spread out over too many diff consoles/handhelds and for me the story started dropping with kh2.

would have been excited for this hd release maybe 6 or so years ago.

I don't see why including the Final Mix version would make it less likely for them to localize the game. Keep in mind, the differences between the English and FM release are minimal. The dialogue is in English, and the additional scenes have already been voiced using splicing. Meanwhile, the original Japanese release lacked a lot content from the English release, like multiple difficulties, optional boss fights (yes, no Sephiroth), or even the Night on Bald Mountain track during the fight with Chernabog.

If they wanna release FM in English, all they need to do is translate a few lines of subtitle text really -- everything else has already been done. So don't worry, you'll get the game.

As for them not releasing KH3... Well, they need to finish Versus XIII first, and Disney is apparently OK with that. If they weren't they could've taken the franchise away from Square and have one of their own studios turn it into a middling platformer -- would you have preferred that?

What's that KH game on 3DS? Dream Drop or some crap like that? Anyways, in the end you dive through the letters at the credits or something, and a secret message is revealed, which said "The past will be visited in a completely new number, as well the future" something like that. It was speaking towards KH 1.5 which is already confirmed, and KH3. So just wait for a confirmation on the latter you guys ;)

I doubt we'll ever see Versus this generation... they're probably working on moving the game to the next generation of consoles which are probably coming late next year or early 2014. And I can't help but feel that Versus is going to be a clusterfuck of shit given all the delays. Based on what happened from FFXIII to FFXIII-2, I don't trust SE's management to make any competition decisions either.

So we probably won't see KH3 until the end of the next console cycle. The story is so convoluted and tattered, I'm guessing they probably can't figure it out themselves.

Was 1.5 actually announced for NA release? I don't recall hearing anything about it.

Not confirmed at all, only announced that it was coming out and everything after that is pure speculation because I haven't read otherwise either.

There have been about 4 games that the team has been workin on and said they'd do KH3 when they were done with that game. Then another Final Fantasy needed to be made.

Pretty lame collection setup in my book. I'd rather have the two main games by themselves and the extra side story crap that I don't want to play in their own compilations.
