    I know after Kingdom Hearts 1.5 

    They Will Make Kingdom Hearts III For Ps3 

    • KurisuMakise

      HOLD IT! Kingdom Hearts 2.5 ReMix first. Followed by Birth By Sleep Volume 2 and KH3 Dual Release PS3/Vita.

      • mdemolish


      • whiteferrero

        OBJECTION! (plus finger point) there is no evidence to support that there will be a 2.5 mix. in fact, if you’ll look at the history of HD releases, you’ll see that most releases are followed by a new release in a series. i.e. MGS HD, Ratchet HD. etc.

        • KurisuMakise

          Not so fast! MGS HD as well as Ratchet HD, did not leave out games(mainline) in their series/trilogy (MGS HD featuring 2,3, PLUS Peacewalker and Ratchet being the whole trilogy). Considering this is Square Enix, who felt the need not to pair FFX-2, FFXI, and FFXII with FFX HD, it indicates that Square would rather release their Remasters split up.

          • Budgiecat

            Are people really going to pay for FF X-2 international + Final Mission HD by itself though?

      • new_tradition

         I thought BbS vol. 2 wasn’t going through anymore..? I read something about them cancelling that, but I’d like to be wrong.

        Though those jumbled scenes in the secret ending just confused me, lol xD

  • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

    Better get a stateside release or someone suffers!!!

  • new_tradition

    Guys, much money do you think I should throw at the screen?

    Really excited for this. The chance to finally (FINALLY) play Final Mix just has me really giddy ^^

    In the (likely) hypothetical 2.5, I hope they package KH2 FM+ AND BbS FM. Likely have the Re:Coded scenes in theatre mode, me thinks…

    • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

      And DDD I want it and BBS Id pay 50$ or whatever is needed wherever to get them

  • KingOptimusOrigins111

    Thank You Nomura for bringing this epic HD Collection exclusively to the PS3. Hope to see Versus XIII and a announcement of Kingdom Heart 2.5 HD Collection for PS3 next year :)

    • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

      I literlay squeeked when watching this… :

      • KingOptimusOrigins111

        I really do hope it comes stateside even though it probably will but if not I’ll import this since my PS3 isn’t region locked ;)

        • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

          yeah if it doesnt get a state release Ill import,but be drove nuts by my currently rusty japanese

  • Bartosz Mszyca

    I;m happy but where is FF X HD ?

  • barklight

    Awesome, i’d never get a chance to play Final Mix and 358/2, so this indeed an awesome deal.

  • FaithlessMr

    Glorious! The 358/2 Cutscenes look gorgeous in HD. So does the rest of the game :D

    Definitely excited for this! I really hope Europe gets this, since that’ll be the first time the ol’ continent gets to play Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories, sadly never released before in here :x (the original KH Chain of Memories was and it was a blast to play it though)

    Btw, there’s a subbed version of this (unnoficially subbed version, ofc), by KH Insider:

  • zakou

    YES! xD YESSSSSSS! im buying it because of the ending song XD its remadei in HD!! the song is no longer MIDI xD YESS!

  • Verus

    I really want this just for the Xemnas secret boss fight. Heard it is by far the hardest boss of all the games.

    • Anime10121

       Trust me when I say he’s nowhere near as hard as Terra’s Lingering Sentiment (KHII FM+)  Mysterious Figure (KHBBS) or Xehanort’s Armor (KH BBS FM)!  He’s hard, but a sound strategy is all it takes to kick his butt.  KH 1 was the game that had the most balanced and strategical battles out of the entire series, and Xemnas was just that, a VERY hard, but fair battle that requires good strategy. :P

  • PrinceHeir

    amazing :D

    the graphics are top notch, and i can see how this game have age very well ^^

    what’s funny is that the Final Mix versions in japan are actually voiced in english and japanese subs.

    same thing with International versions of FFX, FFX-2, FFXII(well FFX-2 the epilogue part was japanese :P)

    here they seem to have made it in japanese as well.

    so dual audio?? :P

  • Skelter

    Way to go Square……………not getting Skelter’s buck though :3

  • paperclichepixel

    When Kingdom Hearts 3 hits, I hope square has the following worlds.
    Robin Hood
    Treasure Planet
    Darkwing Duck
    Black Cauldron

    • Skelter

      Decent :D……..what I was hoping was since Dream Drop Distance focused entirely on Disney, 3 being the most anticipated and probably darkest of them all, should focus 80% on Square and 20% on Disney…….Like having Zanarkand, Eden,  Midgar, Esthar, and Alexandria for worlds…..I’m sure depending on how versus goes they’ll end up using it as a template for KH3 so they should be able to push out big city-like worlds for the ps3 no? :D……wouldn’t that be coolio :P

      • paperclichepixel

        Yeah that’d be dope, but I think SE said that we’d never go to any FF worlds, but hey, they could change.

    • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

      Take out the pixar stuff,darkwing duck and black cauldron and we got a deal!

  • xMCXx

    What a weak excuse for an HD remake.

    • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

      Its not a remake :

      • Sae-Won Yoon

        but it IS HD :3

        • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

          Yes XD

  • Amaterasu4

    Yami! Hikari! Kokoro! Tomodachi! Kingdom Hearts! Yakusoku! Riku!

    They repeat those words so often that I already learned them. XD

  • Kurai Warrior

    Still gonna have to buy this used if it is localized. I’m not supporting SE until they really get their shit together. (That might be a while) 

    • Dean Winchester

      Your contributions to the hobby of gaming do not go unnoticed.

      Thank you for your generosity and patronage.

  • holly

    Stupid decision to bring it exclusively to the ps3. This was the best chance to make this series finally multiplat. But who knows what will happen, in the end it’s squenix. Maybe they will go for the maximum trolling and bring 2.5 HD exclusively to the Xbox, WiiU or the iPad lol.

    Anyway, don’t know if i will get this or not, Kingdom Hearts still looks awesome on the PS2.

    • Dean Winchester

      Stupid decision to keep an exclusive sony series (on console at least, not talking handhelds) exclusive to a Sony console?

      Eeeeyep. What a horrible evil decision by Square. >:-/

      • DarthBrian

        Microsoft probably hasn’t paid them for the series yet like they did with Final Fantasy.

        Though Versus XIII is still PS3 exclusive.

        • Budgiecat

          M$ gave up on paying for Japanese gaming since 2007

    • zakou

      I don’t even look at games like that, i didn’t even noticed this was PS3 exclusive nor would i care if it was multiplat the thing is that i knew what i was getting when i bought my PS3.

      Im a jrpg fan but im also open to all genres however i bought the PS3 for things like this and everything i got so far from the choice i made “PS3” im happy, even surprises like Tales Of Graces F the HD port from Wii was a good choice to bring it over for the Playstation.

      Games like KH in HD aren’t even a big surprise to me because it just shows that i made the right choice as everyone knows that the Playstation brand was always about good jrpgs and such.

      No matter how you look at it it’s always been like this or similar:

      Nintendo:  Main focus: Platforms,  Second focus: jrpgs
      Microsoft: Main focus: Shooters,  Second focus: mixed    “Current third focus: Kinect xD”
      Sony:       Main focus: Jrpgs/rpgs   Second focus: rest of the genres

      • DarthBrian

         I would say Sony’s main focus has been pretty balanced between all genres.

        • zakou

          Yes true, with the PS3 it’s very balance however if you combine the overall from all playstations even PSP, then you probably end up with more jrpgs than any genre, that’s basicly my point.

          • ddsfan2

            Now that I see that you were referring to the 3 vendors historical totals, I kind of agree, but considering how many Nintendo home systems had basically few to no JRPGs at all, when their competitors had gazillions of them, I wouldn’t say it was even a secondary focus…

            (I’ll admit, my opinions of Nintendo are still colored by my aggravation with the N64 at the time though)

      • ddsfan2

        As far as I’m concerned, none of the three focus on JRPGs much at all, at least in terms of the majority of their first-party developments and moneyhatted games.  It’s true that the PS3 has more than the 360 or the Wii in quantity, but very few of those games were because Sony was behind their development, funding, or advertising.

        Nintendo is not really “JRPG focused” at all, at least not since the post-SNES years, granted they funded/developed 2 (or 3, depending on how you count it) for the Wii, but that was more due to their complete lack of 3rd party support from major JRPG developers than anything else.

        • zakou

          I’m not 100% right but most jrpgs end up on PlayStation. Why would it matter to me if Sony helps developing or publishing them? They end up on Sony consoles either way and that’s my sole point.

          I don’t care how, I care “how many” . Even during the first early life of none-jrpg PS3 era I had a PSP for tons of good jrpgs but now the PS3 is filled with jrpg library, not to mention more and better are still coming next year xD.

          • ddsfan2

            I agree with you there, I think our criteria was different though.  Perhaps I was being a bit pedantic.

            I was thinking more in terms of the PS1 era where Sony developed and financed quite a few JRPGs, had exclusivity agreements for FF, and had essentially all major third party support.  More or less the same thing for the PS2.

            • zakou

              Yes indeed however xD we “still” get to play all the FF games and such :3

              Don’t forget playstation exclusives like Dissidia, Crisis Core, type-zero, Versus XIII and half excusive FFXIV

              Truth be told not much has changed since the PS1 era imo, i still get to play tons of jrpgs :D some of them exclusive some not but i “get” to play them and most of the time the Playstation gets better versions of alot of games anyways even if its not exclusive.

    • KingOptimusOrigins111

      You don’t learn do you, if this is exclusive to PS3 then chances are KH 2.5 hd collection will be exclusive to PS3. Then next will be KH3 for PS3 or PS4. I don’t know what your obsession is with trying to hope for every single PS3 third party exclusive to go multiplat but you need to stop.

    • PrinceHeir

      i actually think Kingdom Hearts HD Collection would also be awesome on the Wii U :)

      but we’ll have to wait and see :P

  • KingOptimusOrigins111

    KH 2.5 hd collection will probably have KH 2, BBS, & Recoded Scenes.

    • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

      I want DDD too thoguh :

      • KingOptimusOrigins111

        Its too new but you never know.

  • Zackasaur

    My body was not ready.

  • Learii

    i haven’t play BBS yet i want that on ps3 <3

    • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

      Same here,I cant wait for bbs to come out in hd :D

      • Learii

        you and me both  =D

  • xMCXx

     So, this includes KH1, RE: Chain of Memories and Days?
    Great, RE:Chain never came out in Europe.
    I fucking hope it’s dubbed.
    And Days was in English when it came out here.
    Would be nice to dub it, too, in my language.

  • Budgiecat

    And yet…FFX HD, which was announced a year ago, is nowhere to be found..

    lol S-E stay classy

  • manasword0

    God help Square Enix if they don’t localize this…

    • gable_chase

      I’ve actually started a petition to get it an international release:

  • micky

    Why are they not telling us if it will be out in EU? Is there any evidence to prove it will?
