Featuring King Sora and his lackeys Donald and Goofy.

Square Enix has shared the final Japanese packaging for Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix, due for PlayStation 3 on March 14 in Japan.

Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix includes high-definition updates of Kingdom Hearts: Final Mix and Re: Chain of Memories, and three hours of high-definition cut scene theater footage from 358/2 Days. Jesse McCartney, who plays Roxas in the game, recently teased the collection’s localization.

Thanks, Game Jouhou.

    It’s gorgeous. I hope the U.S. box art is the same, and not branded like other HD collections have been this gen.

      Yeah, I’m really glad Nomura arranged original artworks dedicated to this remaster.

      You can almost be certain, it will be no where as good as this haha:-) fingers crossed tho!

    • KurisuMakise

      I’m with you Sal but I doubt Square Enix will change it, this one reflects what needs to be said and if they need any modifications, it’d just be to put the titles beside certain parts and that’s a “maybe”.

    • PrinceHeir

      agree!!!

      it’s a shame most of the HD Collections have shitty art.

      i think Okami HD(Asia and JPN) has the best cover art :)

    I expect this will come to state around summer. This year is just awesome.

  • DesmaX

    This? In my shelve? Beautiful

    Hope Square announces this soon in the west (With this boxart)

  • DesmaX

    And it does seems that they made a new artwork for this boxart (Not just throwing artworks from the games in the collection)

  • bebestorm117

    So beautiful… Now Im anxious to see if SE will have new boxart for FFX

    • Bloodios

      White background with the logo vertically and horizontally centered. It simply can’t get any better than that.

      • DesmaX

        It even has blue/orange contrast

      • bebestorm117

        Since its a hd upgrade I would like to see something new.

    Still waiting until 2017 for Kingdom Hearts III…

  • new_tradition

    Purty *_*

    I love that expression on Sora’s face. I could be reading too much into it, but it feels a tad smug. He probably realizes all the hapless fans he has desperately throwing money at the screen right now xD

    Updated with bigger box art from Amazon Japan.

    THANK YOU BASED NOMURA!!

    Wow that’s really nice, wouldn’t mind putting that on my game wall.

    Nomura improved his artworks when I look at the boxart of the first KH…

    • TimesTicking

      What was wrong with the first box art? it looked great imo.
      Better than the ones we get now too.

      • http://twitter.com/RaiuLyn Raiu

        Don’t get me wrong… That first one was great but this one looks more refined, at least to me anyways….

    “KH is coming”

  • zakou
  • AnimusVox

    Key of Thrones: A Song of Hearts and Heartless

    • Michael Garling

      ‘Game of Keys’ probably reflects the content a little better.

      • Michael Garling

        In fact, screw it – Kingdom of Keys!

  • Prodigy-X

    I hope the U.S. looks similar to this.

  • EspadaKiller

    Very nice, Sora sitting at the chair with that pose reminds me of Noctis from Versus XIII lol

    • TimesTicking

      Maybe they are also teasing us on that XD
      It would be epic if KH HD 1.5 Remix has a demo of Versus XIII XD

      • Anime10121

        unfortunately noctis’ art was an omage to the Sora pic. Sora’s had the original chair sitting cross legged pose. It would be nice if it was hinting at something, its just not.

    Looking good. If this gets localized it will be my first venture in the franchise.

  • paperclichepixel

    Goofy is a badass.

    • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

      Goofy: “Garsh. Ya really think so?”

      • paperclichepixel

        COM..MON SORA!!!!

  • 浪黒雷 (ro-kurorai)

    I love Nomura’s art style and this looks exceptionally hot!

  • xMCXx

    KH is one of those games I could play nonstop, so this Hd collection is pretty cool, even though can only hear SE in my head saying:”Remember when we made good games?”. xD
    I also hope Germany gets German voices, again or I’ll be pissed.

  • YangTerlupakan

    HD collection cover must be like this not ugly!!!
    I like it, remind me with HITMAN HD COLLECTION cover

    what would be really amazing is if it did kind of like what the sly collection did and made a secret trailer for kh 3 then i could die happily.
