Kingdom Hearts 1 and Re: CoM in high-definition.

Square Enix has announced Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix for PlayStation 3.

Due in 2013, the package includes Kingdom Hearts (the Final Mix version) and Kingdom Hearts Re: Chain of Memories remastered in high-definition. Both titles will feature trophy support. Additionally, scenes from Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days can be viewed in high-definition in the game’s theater mode.

Kingdom Hearts for PC Browsers was also announced. It is a social game where players can customize their avatars, explore a variety of Disney worlds, and battle using collectible cards. You’ll be able to scavenge materials from each world and even play co-op with friends.

Thanks, Famitsu.

    Awesome, hope it comes to America.

    • Acidicsam

      Agreed. I’d buy the hell out of this.

    • AdamBoy64

      I hope it comes West. I haven’t played any of the KH games, and was thinking about picking one of them up a few months ago.

      Seems like a great way to experience the series.

  • whiteferrero

    GREATTTTTTTTTTT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I’d buy this just for the best KH… the very first one! :D 358/2 would be a bonus since i never had the chance to play it. this great news from square.

    Freakin sweet!

    Kinda surprised at some of the games chosen here, but I’m not going to complain.I kinda figured an HD set would have KH1, KH2, and BBS. Perhaps they are saving some of those for Kingdom Hearts 2.5 HD Remix? =P

  • Vampiric

    pc browser, ewwww

  • DarthBrian

    I want this. O_O

    EDIT: Just noticed it’s the Final Mix version. Yeah, we better effing get this. >_<

    (side note: are we still allowed to swear here? :p)

    • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

      Sure. So long as you’re not attacking anyone! ;D

      • DarthBrian

         Okay. Just checking. Because one of my comments was moderated for the word (S E X) and I wasn’t sure if the filtering software was picky on swear words too or not. :p

  • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

    Oh man I wish 358/2 was playable too

    Still will buy,hope we get the rest the handheld ones as well!!!!

    Also! TRAILER!

  • Vampiric

    so it combines 2 ps2 games? seems shitty

  • http://moefx.wordpress.com/ barklight

  • HarryHodd

    • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

      Thats probably KH2.5

      • DarthBrian

         I think we tied. :p

        • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

          I was 1 minute before you XD  it’s why mine was lower Bwuahahahaa

          • DarthBrian

            Well, la-dee-freaking-dah. My post was longer so there. :p

            • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

              Touche >:| sir.touche

    • DarthBrian

       That’ll be for HD Remix 2.5. :p

      • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

        Beat ya too it ;D

  • Dean Winchester

    Japan only I’m guessing.

    Also, why is part 2 not in this collection?

    • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

      I’d go with @DarthBrian:disqus ‘s guess and say they’re holding out Kingdom Hearts 2 and Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep for Kingdom Hearts 2.5 HD Remix.

    • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

      It better not be japan only! >:{

  • Raiyu

    I never played these games, so a definite add to my to buy list.

    Being Final Mix is the only reason this could possibly be significant. Your move, Square-Enix U.S.A….

  • PrinceHeir

    Kingdom Hearts 2.5 will include Final Mix versions, Birth By Sleep, Coded and Dream Drop Distance cutscenes!!!!!

    man finally square done right :P

    though where’s my FFX HD International version as well as FFXII and FFX-2 International edition???

    • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

      I reaaaaly hope it has the full games for all those

  • DesmaX

    … No KH II? What a shame

  • http://www.facebook.com/Bladez0fDr4v3n Sae-Won Yoon

    all they needed was KH2 FM+….

    the ONE thing I asked of Square and they didn’t give me it.

    (i’m not as negative as I sound…)

  • KingOptimusOrigins111

    This might be a clear indication Kingdom Hearts 3 might be coming to PS4 exclusively and Versus XIII could be close to finishing & might be out by early 2014.

    • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

      Yeah its good indication that its still exclusive,and is a very good sign for versus!

    • DarthBrian

       or PS3. :p

      • KingOptimusOrigins111

        But they might not have time to bring it to PS3. Remember PS4 and Xbox 720 are rumor for next year so by the time they get to Kingdom Hearts 3 it be till like 2016 on PS3 10 year anniversary. 

        • DarthBrian

          Not unprecedented. FFIX was released for PS1 after the PS2 launched.

          • KingOptimusOrigins111

            That was Square Enix back then this is Square Enix now we are talking about.

    • http://profiles.google.com/dnlblue Daniel blue

      There’s absolutely no way you can infer all that information from a simple HD collection announcement. Are you just making stuff up for fun?

      • KingOptimusOrigins111

        I said it “might be” I’m just guessing. You people on this site need quit attacking other people on this site when someone post a guess or a opinion on a game or a game franchise.

  • Kurai Warrior

    Okay SE I’m excited but please actually release this when you say you will. I mean where the heck is FF X HD?

    I’m guessing that HD remix 2.5 would be something they release in 2014. 

  • http://www.facebook.com/JaeWhy SasuleUchiha

    Awesome!!!
    I never beat KH1 and never played Chain of Memories.
    And trophies are delicious!!!

  • KingNigma

    was only a matter of time 

  • Learii

    KH chain of memories and KH 358/2 days only?

  • bebestorm117

    AWESOME! Ive been wanting a hd collection for a long time

  • Anime10121

    Yes! THIS is what I’m talking bout Square!  Dont know why people were expecting ALL mainline titles in one collection though.  What will probably happen is this will be released next year, then the year after, an HD collection consisting of BBS FM and KH II FM+ along with Re: Coded cutscenes will be released in 2014, we may get one more mainline KH title for 2015 and KH3 finally in 2016.  That’ll mostly go with their claim of one title a year, so I think thats how it’ll work :)

    • Solomon_Kano

      I agree with everything except us seeing KH3 in 16. Since 3 is dependent on Versus’ completion, and that looks like it’ll probably be done in 14 or 15 at this rate lol, we probably won’t see KH3 until a bit later. Nomura is sure to want to put a lot into making KH3 with all the advances the series has seen on portables alone, so it’ll probably spend 2 or more years in development.

      Looking at the KH for PC Browsers announcement, I wouldn’t be surprised if our KH per year quote gets filled with a few smaller titles like that. Tell me you can’t see Square announcing CoM HD for iOS and Android with brand new sprites or something equally silly lol.

      • Anime10121

        Yeah you’re probably right, though Im just hopeful that 3ll be out before I’m thirty! I’m thinking vs. is closed to finished and they are just waiting on the last XIII game to be out before releasing it early 2014. But yeah probably the earliest we’ll see 3 is sometime late 2016 – 2017
        (which is the year i turn 30 :P )

  • http://www.facebook.com/wtfits.gardner Cat Flames

    Finally! even us none KH players are happy that KH fans are finally getting something on a console. Grats guys.

  • Nikolasvanitas

    Awesome news,thanks Square Enix ;)

  • Skelter

    the phrase “HD Collection” no longer fools me…after ICO and DMC I’ll never patronize an “HD” collection again…….an upscaled emulation on pc would far surpass what they call “HD”.

    • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

      The ico collection was Great

      far better then simple emualtion

      • Skelter

        you would think that eh? but unfortunately it isn’t………..get a strong computer and run the emulation graphic settings at max and you’ll understand……you guys haven’t tried it yet which is why you can say that.

        • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

          actually I have,if you knew anything about these youd know why hd collections look better 

          • Skelter

            You have…..with a weak computer…..you’re talking to someone who bought 80% of the HD collections that came out this year INCLUDING ICO……so why I’m geeking out over how it looks sleeker on my pc is beyond me.

            • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

              90% of the hd collections have redone higher res textures,something emulation doesnt,which is why it looks better on the hd pack,sure the pc might have some better aliasing but thats not too important

    • Kobracon

      Yeah I agree with KingKellogg, the ICO one was good.

    • Gaara D.Dragon

      upscaled emulation doesn’t upgrade the textures or the effects, you could have drawn credibility if you refereed to the Silent Hill collection but Ico was pushing it 

      • Skelter

        you’d be surprised man……http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XZ1Wi-ujHAI here’s your example……my Kingdom Hearts 2 run just like that……so while everyone’s waiting on their “HD Collection” I’m already enjoying it in full HD by emulating……but to each his own, I completely feel you on your point man :)

  • http://Flickr.com/mdemolish mdemolish

    Oh Finally  the games i love it is coming to PS3 T,T 

    ThankS Square Enix & Sal.R

    • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

      the question is”is it coming stateside,or out of japan”?

  • Gaara D.Dragon

    To those wandering about FF X HD, let me remind you it was not handed over to a third party but is kept within Square. And since just about everyone is working on XIV it was set back.

    But this collection is a sign that XIV development that is keeping 300 people occupied is coming to an end.

  • xMCXx

    What do I want with only KH1 (even if it’s the FM version) and Chain of Memories?

  • Talbot

    Fellow Europeans, listen! If this comes over to the west, we may actually be able to play what I presume to be the PS2 version of Chain of Memories after all. And this pleases me. Onwards, men and women, we cannot let this ever be Japan-only (not that I can see any reason why they would make this Japan-only. It’s not like it’s a PSP title). 

  • Gaara D.Dragon

    Isn’t it a little strange that there is no Vita version yet ?

  • luke12345

    This is good wish kh2 was on it aswell

  • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

    I sent off an e-mail to Square last night to see if they can confirm an English release.

    Still waiting on a response.

  • http://twitter.com/Riseabovethesky Riseabovethesky

    Hope they outsource this one. Still waiting for the first glimpse of Final Fantasy X HD…

  • new_tradition

    Curious why KH2 FM+ isn’t on this, but whatever, still pretty happy for this game ^^

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000720552713 Paulo Campos

    i think it should also be in ps vita and 3ds, i dont expect them to have super spec graphics, so why do it on the most powerfull console graphics wise?
