Well we were all waiting for it and now it's finally been confirmed: Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX is coming to NA and EU this autumn.


Hah, and in the fall too. Exactly as I predicted. Suck it, PimpLimp.

Haha I don't remember saying you were wrong, but I'll suck anything I have to for more Kingdom Hearts lmao.

SquareEnix is weird.

Only the cut scenes from 358/2 are going to be in the game. And there's nothing that's been released to say that it won't be included in the US version.

Not shabby, maybe I'll get around to beating Sephiroth this time around (never bothered to do it back in the day). Only played the original CoM for the GBA, so guess I'll give that a whirl. TBH I'm more interested in 2.5 since I never played BBS.

I am excited for this. We'll finally get Remix version of #1, happy to play through that. They are making the gameplay more like KH2? Awesome! KH2 battle system was much more refined and fun.

Trophy for watching 358/6 days videos, woo! (Sarcastic). CoM, I own it on the PS2 and I never really got far, didn't like it. It was updated from the portable version, but still made me lose faith in any/all portable KH games.

I hope the next HD Collection with KH2 gives 2 portable games like BBS or 3D DDD instead of "videos". Or a separate 3rd collection with all portables on console, in HD, like GoW:Origins.

Based on the timeline of the KH story, BBS should really be included in this collection, not cutscenes from 358/2

Other than BBS, I doubt they will make any of the portable games playable in the next installment. That probably takes more work than just re-rendering and replacing textures, but BBS would probably be the easiest.

I couldn't care less about playing through DDD or Re: Coded (or 358/2) though... those games sucked.

They have to keep milking this series somehow...:lol:

Gamers in Japan noticed that the games credits contained cutscenes from OTHER KH games.

These previously mentioned games are KH2, BBS, and Coded. This all but confirms that they're working on a 2.5 IMO.

After this can we fucking finally have KH3? The original Kingdom Hearts is why I bought a PS2, why not make Kingdom Hearts 3 the reason I buy a PS4?

So, they can make KH 1.75 and 2.75? (ps4 is to not be backwards compatible)

So I just beat KH1HD and I've got some good news and some bad news for all you trophy hunters out there. The bad news is that difficulty trophies don't stack, meaning you'll have to beat the game three times for a Platinum (same with Re:CoM). The good news is that you can now skip cutscenes, and that the speedrun, initial equipment, and no continues trophies should be total cakewalk on Beginner. In fact, someone already did a proper speedrun and the record is currently at 3:15.

Anyway, the port was flawless from a technical perspective (no framerate drops or weird glitches like in so many other HD ports out there), but I do have some complaints about the seemingly arbitrary decisions they made on what to preserve from the original game and what not to. Obviously they've made some pretty significant changes like lifting character models from later games, completely redoing the soundtrack with an actual orchestra, and mapping combat abilities to the Triangle button. So it's all the more annoying when something got preserved that really didn't need to be.

Case in point, you still use only three face buttons for magic, and you can't map items to them. KH2 changed that, and it seems a bit silly to go back to KH1's limitations when other changes already affect game balance (having combat abilities mapped to Triangle does technically make the game easier, if only slightly).

Another thing that'll effect Proud Mode and challenge run players in particular is that you can't restart bosses like in Birth by Sleep and KH3D, which just adds unnecesary downtime as you walk back to the boss and skip the cutscenes. Sure, it may only take like 20 secs, but it gets to be a real pain in the neck if you're stuck on one particular boss.

But anyway, the fact that I'm complaining about this extremely nitpicky stuff is just a testament to how well this HD port was done. This is easily the best one I've played, and other publishers should be ashamed of themselves for how little effort they put into them.

If you haven't pre-ordered this game already, you now have another reason to. Pre-order it and now get a limited edition artbook.

That reminds me I never got around to buying the KH3D Mark of Mastery Edition. I wouldn't have been able to play it since I don't own a US 3DS, but I just wanted to have it for my collection. Of course, now it's too late as prices have completely blown out of proportion, and it wasn't particularly special anyway so nevermind I guess.

They're far more reasonable about Collector's Edition prices in Japan. You can get a mint condition Final Mix Platinum Edition (the original from 2002) for a mere 5000 yen. Not on eBay, of course. Nah, the people on eBay are total dickholes and it's impossible to get Japanese games there for a reasonable price. I've seen people mark up games up to 6 times the Japanese asking price. In order to get a decent deal, you'd have to book a flight to Japan (actually worth it if you plan on buying lots of games).

Anyway, I bet that art book is pretty flimsy just like the one that came with the European version of Birth by Sleep, but hey, at least it's free.

I would get this right away but I know it's going to drop to $20 like every other hits collection and pokemon is coming out in October and believe me I am not touching any other games once that comes out. Plus I have way too many games in my backlog.

So GameTrailers finally released their 1-hour Kingdom Hearts timeline video that they teased back in Febuary:

http://www.gametrail...-kingdom-hearts

As someone who lives and breathes KH, this really didn't tell me anything I didn't already know, but if you've ever been confused about any aspect of the story, this'll probably clear things up as it goes into pretty fine detail. I think they did a good job on it, and it lists like a dozen "lore consultants" in the credits as GT called upon outside help to make sure they didn't mess anything up.

Obviously don't watch this if you're a newcomer to the series as it spoils basically everything there is to spoil. If you haven't played Birth by Sleep, I wouldn't watch it either as that game is just too damn awesome to spoil.

Oh good, I'll probably have to watch this. The series' story is a clusterfuck of clusterfucks.

Lmao. That pretty much how I feel

First, how can you claim prior non-existance to devalue a movement? I am sure the civil rights movement would love that. "Well, there was no movement to free the slaves before, so why is it relavent now?"
