    MY HEART!

    So awesome!

  • Elvick

    Yay, soon it will be time to play the masterpiece that is Birth By Sleep again.

  • Zackasaur

    *foams at the mouth*

    My body is not ready. I’m more excited about this than any -new- game 2014 can offer.

    • Crossbones (Prodigy-X)

      2014 won’t be as good as this year.

      • https://twitter.com/GaleGlory89 KiQun

        I think he meant JRPG-wise. If it’s about AAA titles, this year spotted some best titles recently.

        • Crossbones (Prodigy-X)

          Well if it’s about JRPG wise then, yeah of course.

  • Alex TSi

    Yeeee!!!!

  • Crossbones (Prodigy-X)

    What I don’t get is if 1.5 HD Remix & 2.5 HD Remix is releasing exclusively on PS3, then why is KH3 being released on PS4 & Xbox One, shouldn’t KH3 just be on PS4.

    • Laharl

      Porting to XBone is super easy, unlike PS3 to 360.

      • DarthBrian

        Xbone is still the LCD in the equation, so if they code it for the Xbone specs, PS4 owners won’t get as good *looking* a game as they would if it was exclusive. Either way, the game is going to be great. ^_^

        • Laharl

          I think that’s more on the end of the devs, I suspect the main reason a great deal of Multiplat games looked worse on PS3 this gen is because 360 was the dominant sales platform, meaning the PS3 complaints would be muffled under the 360 gushing.

          Look at how long Bethesda got away with abysmal PS3 ports until the Skyrim debacle, I’d be willing to be Fallout 4 will run like a dream on PS4.

    • Wolf Star

      I guess micro$oft became so desperate that they want people who love KH to go to Xbone. Lol to me KH 1.5 and 2.5 Remix is PS exclusive, it doesn’t make sense either. KH3 on Xbone shouldn’t even been announced. They should cancel the Xbone version and make it PS4 exclusive.

    • Devilgunman

      Because why not? PS4 and Xbone architecture is very similar and it make porting much more easier than this gen.

    • http://twitter.com/RaiuLyn Raiu

      This, I would like an explaination….

      I get that SE put FFXV on PS4/Xbox One because FFXIII has gone multiplaform…. but both 1.5 and 2.5 is going PS exclusive thus leaving the Xbox players having no idea what KH is…. Why?

      • Devilgunman

        360 doesn’t have MGSIV but the Xbone gets MGSV as well. It’s not just Sqaure Enix doing this. If a game is likely to sell in the west, devs will probably make it multi-platform.

        • DarthBrian

          MGS3 and Peace Walker are on 360 though, and MGS5 is a sequel to those games. So they won’t be totally confused.

    • DarthBrian

      I’m guessing they figure that the install-base is going to be 50/50 in NA/EU again this time so they figure they’ll get more sales if there’s an Xbone version for NA/EU.
      My question is who is going to own an Xbone that’s played all the KH games. Like you said, these HD versions are only on PS3. So the only Xbone owners that will understand the series probably have a PS3. And if they have a PS3, odds are they’ll be getting a PS4 too.
      So yeah, it’s confusing.
      FFXV makes sense coming to Xbone because XIII was on 360 and each game is different so that’s fine. But KH has such a complicated story, it’s a weird choice to be sure. *shrug*

      • Crossbones (Prodigy-X)

        “My question is who is going to own an Xbone that’s played all the KH games. Like you said, these HD versions are only on PS3. So the only Xbone owners that will understand the series probably have a PS3. And if they have a PS3, odds are they’ll be getting a PS4 too.”

        That’s my point. Xbox Fans like COD, Halo, and EA Sports titles. They don’t give a single fuck about JRPG’s. To me this is just SE refusing to give Sony an exclusive for the PS4 because they want more money by making it multiplat. I don’t have a problem with it being multiplat but most people on Xbox don’t care about JRPG’s. So again with both games being PS3 exclusives and PS4 having the $100 advantage. I think it’s a given PS4 install base will be more than Xbox One in the first 2-3 years next generation.

        • ghost_wolves

          No.

          The Xbox 360 has tons of great JRPGs, including Lost Odyssey (which most people say is the true next-gen Final Fantasy as it was created by Sakaguchi) and Blue Dragon. Tales of Vesperia has also stayed exclusive to the 360 in America. Most of the other have been ported to PS3 at some point, but stop acting like they don’t exist. They do, and Xbox fans love them.

          The 360 is also home to the all of the latest Japanese shmups (ESPGaluda II, Deathsmiles, Dodanpachi, etc) which I would say make it the TRUE system of choice for the hardcore gamer. Anyone who knows their stuff would know the 360 is the Dreamcast of this gen.

          I own both systems and I much prefer the 360. I will be getting the XB1 first, and I am glad that Square is going multi-platform as the XB1 will be my primary system for next-gen. I will get a PS4 a few years later when they actually get an exclusive I care about.

          I also don’t own a single COD game. Stop being prejudice and think all 360 “fans” do.

        • http://twitter.com/RaiuLyn Raiu

          Wouldn’t that just concluded that putting it on the Xbox One a waste of money? If the PS4 install base is more than Xbox One plus the fan base is already on PS…. SE made no effort on introducing KH to Xbox players so why even bother? Those porting costs has to be paid somehow…

  • DarthBrian

    I hope we get it sooner than September of next year. Want so bad. :(

    • Crossbones (Prodigy-X)

      When they first announced 1.5 it was for Japan and we had to wait for the U.S and Europe announcement. Now they announce 2.5 for Europe, Japan, & U.S at the same time so they might be releasing it for everybody before September next year.

      • DarthBrian

        I hope so!!!

      • Samuel Giam

        I hope so too! The reason Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix is announced for Japan first then US and Europe & UK next was that the English actors voiced the respective KH characters late plus HD 1.5 Remix is a rushed remastered game that only have upscaling to HD and a Limited Edition with a rushed 24 page artbook, nothing else.

        I just hope the US LE of KH HD 2.5 Remix have more artwork pages in the artbook like the US Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster LE.

  • https://twitter.com/GaleGlory89 KiQun

    Another JRPG on PS3 coming next year? I’m glad to stick with Sony platform to the end.

    • Mar Mar

      Now clearly I have no reason to get PS4 at launch.

      Also don’t forget Dark Souls II :D

      • MogCakes

        At launch, no. When KHIII/FFXV releases, yes.

        • Arcana Gear

          when FFXV will be released it’s when i will buy my ps4, by that time the system will already have some revisions for problems frequent in releases, have a price drop in my country, have more jrpgs, have more games that interest me, old games more cheaper…
          I dont see KH3 be released a before a year and half of FFXV launch, as nomura said in a interview…. they are in beggining of KH3 yet. And to full production happen, FFXV have to be finished.

  • Leon_Tekashi

    Sony/Noire (HDN) is definitely the JRPG King/Queen. =)

  • Invisbin

    2014, the year that saved Gaming for another decade.

  • Anime10121

    All of my YES SE!!! GIMME MORE KH! I want MOAR!!!

    http://i.imgur.com/0P0PhSU.gif

  • Zuhri69

    We all saw it coming, and yet, it is still awesome.

  • Wolf Star

    Day One!!!! Buying it!! PS3 and PS4 is all I need x3 KH2.5 will be amazing :)

  • http://twitter.com/RaiuLyn Raiu

    I’m feeling the hype!!!

    But kinda dissapointed with putting in BBS in it instead of DDD… You know, it is 2.5 and should be following the series chronologically… What happened to 0.5?

    • Zackasaur

      We’ve known for a long time that Birth by Sleep would be in HD 2.5 Remix. Plus, a “0.5” wouldn’t really make sense, since BbS is the only game in the series so far taking place before KHI… Except for KHX on PC in Japan, which doesn’t exactly count. lol

      As for DDD… I figure that these reasons exist:

      1. It’s part of this gen, so it’s not super unreasonable to hope people can play it. It’s similar to having CoM on GBA when KHII released on PS2. Plus, copies of DDD are technically still selling.

      2. Moving DDD in playable form to PS3 would be a very tricky undertaking. A lot of the game is designed with the dual-screen setup in mind. And they definitely wouldn’t just want to do cutscenes for DDD, I would think.

      3. The possibility of a contract with Nintendo is one we can’t ignore. It’s basically impossible for us to know, but it’s very possible. KH DDD was one of the very first projects kicked off for 3DS, so we know some sort of partnership existed there, with KH devs getting hardware access very early.

      I would absolutely love a DDD HD, though! I just don’t see it as likely right now. So a KH fan should at least have a PS3 and a 3DS for now… And a PS4 eventually.

      • http://twitter.com/RaiuLyn Raiu

        Doesn’t explain the 0.5 teaser…

        1. DDD still selling? Didn’t know that…

        2. They improved KH1 with KH2 battle systems… They could go out of their way to revamp the game…

        3. Possible… But shouldn’t the contract be expired by now?

        Remember that DDD is important as well since Nomura himself said it’s a mainline title, not a spinoff…

        • DarthBrian

          Yeah, DDD is SUPER important to KH3. If it’s important for Nomura to have the whole saga on one system (hence the HD remasters) then he’s gonna have to get DDD out there somehow. Perhaps it’ll be on PS4/Xbone? That way Xbone people won’t be completely lost? Dunno. *shrug*

          • http://twitter.com/RaiuLyn Raiu

            I don’t think DDD is enough to explain the whole saga though….

            • DarthBrian

              Sets up KH3 at least.

        • Anime10121

          Nomura already said that you can basically ignore the teaser at the end of BBS FM, as he had ideas for BBSv2, but he fears he wont be able to put them to use…

      • PrinceHeir

        i’ll break it down some of the points there.

        1. doesn’t matter, both Resident Evil Revelations and Lords of Shadows Mirror of Fate are getting a PS3/360 versions.

        although Mercurysteam mentioned there were HD assets already made. the point is they can still port this whenever they want.

        they just need the time, doesn’t matter if the game came from this gen.

        2. they can redesign it like what Revelations did on PS3/360, remove the touch screen controls and make it standard button controls. change some of the system if they have to.

        3. not really, if that’s the case why is KHIII not coming on Wii U? there is possibility, but i doubt nintendo cared that much for the series despite fitting really well in Nintendo’s lineup.

        i would say that Dream Drop Distance maybe a downloadable only title, similar to what happened to Ratchet and Clank HD Collection where the multiplayer game(forgot the name) was sold separately as a download only game

        they could also do a some sort of cutscene collection where it stores all the cutscenes from every game made + Dream Drop Distance in one disc.

        so yeah Dream Drop Distance is still possible, but like i said it may only be downloadable title and maybe for PS3/PS4.

        • Anime10121

          Just of note though, for both points 1 and 2, RE and Castlevania never had any “real” usage of the touch screen, with Resident Evil only using it for Camera movement which can easily be mapped to an analogue. And I dont recall Castlevania using the touch screen for much of anything.

          DDD however has reality shifts, which utilize the touch screen in very touch sensitive ways, with each world being a completely different type of usage. I cant really see them mapping that to a DS3 properly…

          That being said, it COULD potentially be converted to DS4 controls, but I still have a hard time seeing them do a DDDHD remaster (no matter how much I’d like it) instead of focusing said efforts on 3.

  • Gigus

    Well hello ps3 backlog. You’re just getting bigger and bigger!

  • PrinceHeir

    kinda new the games would be that :D

    though that leaves with Dream Drop Distance.

    will they make a HD single only game?

    i hope we get Dream Drop Distance as well!!!

    i’ll be getting the JPN version though :)

    • Anime10121

      Probably not getting DDDHD for all the reasons Zackasaur mentioned below.

  • Frii

    I just hope they will announce BBS HD for Vita :(

    • Zackasaur

      If they do that, they might as well do all of them. I’d totally buy all of these games twice if they also hit Vita.

  • Samuel Giam

    Nice! COOL! I CAN’T WAIT…. for Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 Remix to get announced for America so that I can pre-order the LE from Amazon.com! But I just hope that KH HD 2.5 Remix is not just horrible up-scaling of KH II Final Mix, Birth by Sleep FM and coded’s cutscenes like KH HD 1.5 Remix.

    Also I’m a bit disappointed that KH 3D is not included in the announced collection which I’m OK about since KH 3D for the 3DS is not discontinued yet.

  • Crossbones (Prodigy-X)

    Come on Sony, release the Playstation Conversation Video with Nomura in it.

  • Wolf Star

    There should be KH3 trailer soon. They already showed it an hour ago. Still I’m excited for 2.5

    • Anime10121

      Hope :)

      Though they did say the Conversations with Creators KH3 version would have clips of the new trailer… (which means they may not make it available for us online in its entirety :(

      • DarkLegacy

        They should do. Well they did mention that they didn’t have any information on KH3 that they would like to release apart from the new clip that they are suppose to show at D23 Expo

    • EX+

      When will it come out? I’m going crazy bro. Lol.

      • Wolf Star

        I don’t know, soon I hope.

  • Invisbin

    For those that hoped for Kh3d, why would they have that for an HD port? The game isn’t even 2 years old yet, and it probably couldn’t look any better than it is. Far too recently released.

    • Crossbones (Prodigy-X)

      I’m thinking it will be released on PS3 in 2015 through the PSN and then we get KH3 in 2016 because FFXV is probably releasing in 2015.

      • Invisbin

        2017 is my guess. Still don’t know how far they are into development, or if it’ll even take a years worth of work.

        • Crossbones (Prodigy-X)

          2017 is too long. But then again we will have FF XV to hold us over.

          • Invisbin

            I’m just keeping my expectations low. We get 2.5 next year, Ff15 goes gold in 2015, full development in 2016 into 2017 since its a console game.

            • Crossbones (Prodigy-X)

              Let’s just hope Nomura doesn’t get distracted again like he did with FF XV.

            • DarthBrian

              I fully expect FFXV to be out in Japan December next year and in NA/EU early 2015.
              Then KH3 can come out either late 2015 or early 2016. ^_^

    • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

      The point of these is to get them all on One console.

      • Nice Boat

        Yeah but Microsoft doesn’t have the rights to—-Oh you didn’t meant that.

  • zakou

    1.5 along wth 2.5 is the perfect way to experience Kingdom Hearts.
    Containing the best KH games (1, 2 and BBS) and enough story cinemas from other KH games.

    • gerald

      Good news for me then, I haven’t played any of them yet.

      • Zackasaur

        You’ll still want to get Dream Drop Distance on 3DS.

        After that, you’ll be all ready for KHIII on PS4!

  • DarkLegacy

    I’m actually excited for it. This is great and I can’t wait to play KH2FM

    • EX+

      Same. Do you know when the new KH3 clip will come out?

      • DarthBrian

        They’re going to do a Creators interview with Nomura. Some clips of the new footage should appear in that. When we get the full video, however, I have no idea. Jump Festa maybe?

        • EX+

          Apparently, this is what the trailer was like:

          -Sora now fights with a style visually similar to Disney’s electrical parade
          -Sora Summons a train from the electrical parade in Disneyland
          -Guns in combos confirmed, we DMC now
          -Traverse Town confirmed
          -Rock Titan is in Traverse Town at a parade, and is fought by Sora
          -Little Green Men cameo, Toy Story confirmed!

      • DarkLegacy

        I thought it was suppose to be today at 15:00

        • EX+

          Same here. I guess we’ll have to wait for the convo’s with creators.

  • Gigus

    I don’t mean to be a kill joy but is this the only thing they announced?

    • Anime10121

      Also had a new KH3 trailer that likely wont be posted online. However we’ll see “clips” of it in the new Creators interview focusing on KH3.

      Sora and Riku are confirmed to appear in the trailer, while the only preview I’ve seen says “look forward to Roxas” so whatever that means :P

      • EX+
        • DarkLegacy

          So this is suppose to be what the trailer will look like at D23 Expo?

          • EX+

            Yeah.

            • DarkLegacy

              I know now that if I saw that trailer then pretty much that game will be epic. Of course with it now being Kingdom Hearts III I think that game will be awesome than all KH games that I have played

        • Anime10121

          Saw it EARLY this morning when it was posted! That along with KHinsider and Kh2.co.uk are all bookmarked :P

          I was watching all three last night for any sort of news from the events :P

          but thx :D

  • Samsara09

    As expected.Well,this is going to be interesting.

  • Gariya

    PS3 JRPG. PS3 JRPG everywhere.

    I want Persona 5 to be on PS3 instead of PS4 now, PS3’s life-cycle ending with a JRPG-heavy image is a good thing. Funny that it’s somewhat a law of nature for a PlayStation home-console to always have the biggest living room JRPG library.

  • Sae-Won Yoon

    Now if only Sir Chirstopher Lee could reprise his role.

    smh he’s most likely retired which is why he wasn’t in the last one.

    • Anime10121

      Ansem doesnt have any new lines to record so its all good :) Christopher Lee wouldnt be needed for these. Unless you wanted them to redub BBS.

  • bloodiOS

    Hmm… I fell asleep and this happened, huh? I see that there is no Dream Drop Distance… it’s control-related problem perhaps (that thing did utilize the touchscreen the whole lot.) Maybe they’ll release it on the PS4 with functional touch pad capability and everything sometimes close to Kingdom Hearts III‘s release.

    • MogCakes

      DDD won’t be released in a bundle, it’s a recent game for a current handheld system.

      • bloodiOS

        And that’s fine, it can just be released by itself, later on, on PSN for the PS4.

        • MogCakes

          Maybe. That probably won’t be until around the time of release or after the release of KHIII though.

          • bloodiOS

            And that’s what I’m expecting.

            • MogCakes

              I don’t personally share your optimism for it being ported, unfortunately.

              • bloodiOS

                Maybe it won’t happening within the next 2 or 3 years, but I doubt it’ll go on more than 10 years without being ported over.

        • http://Xcite79.1up.com/ Keegs79

          likely much much later considering it would take a lot of work optimizing it. It would be easier and cheaper for them to stream it but then you would also need a constant internet connection. Im sticking with the PS3 version. Its a physical thing, I can play it much sooner, and there is no guarantee it would come to the PS4.

          • bloodiOS

            You realize that I’m talking about DDD right? Its gameplay system will never be able to properly adapt to the PS3’s control scheme. But err, it can come to whatever, I’ll wait for the next ten years.

        I’m sleep during the day mostly and stay up during the knight.

  • Articuno76

    Would have loved to have seen these games on the Vita as well. At least digitally (where IIRC most of the software sales are coming from).

  • http://Xcite79.1up.com/ Keegs79

    Awesome news. This and Demon Souls 2, my PS3 is going to get a lot of play time even after I get the next gen systems.

  • 罪罰

    I really shiggy diggy Birth by Sleep, I got lost in the retarded plotline of keyblade mumbo jumbo but that gameplay was really fun. They should’ve added Dream Drop Distance.

    • Sevyne

      BBS was probably my favorite one for gameplay, so yeah I’m really excited for this release! As for KH 3D though, I think that one is going to end up staying on 3DS.

    • Elvick

      Not sure how you couldn’t follow the plot, it was pretty simple to follow.

  • new_tradition

    I never doubted but I’m still so excited! ^^

    Omg, I’m already thinking about Mirage Arena in BbS. I could never do any coop on my PSP, but maybe on PS3… :D

    Ngh…. And that music is going to be so good! Can’t wait to see what gets rearranged across the 3 titles ×_×

  • https://twitter.com/RyoonZ RyoonZ

    The best KH and the best gameplay of KH in one collection? Take all my
    money

    • DarthBrian

      best KH = KH2 and best gameplay = BBS, I assume you mean?

      • https://twitter.com/RyoonZ RyoonZ

        Definitely.

  • FucSh1a

    Final Mixes.. Final Mixes everywhere! Loved KH2 but sadly didn’t play much of BBS. Also loved the packaging they did with KH1.5 LE so I’m definitely buying LE of this as well.

  • Charlie

    Yes! Some more of that sexy artbook packaging coming my way.

    • DarkLegacy

      Hopefully they bring more dynamic themes on PS3 like they did with 1.5 HD Remix

    • Elvick

      I hate the artbook being the game case.

      • Charlie

        I personally like it (it’s mostly the artwork that counts).

  • kurosan9712

    Hell yeah. I was waiting for this announcement since I platinumed the JPN release of KH 1.5 HD Remix.
    Sucks to be guys who wanted 3D in 2.5HD, as it was impossible, it’s still a pretty new game to remake.

  • maruhadapurpurine

    YES! YES! YES!

  • EX+

    I think I need to take a break from my PS3 for a while… because with this, Xillia 2 and Symphonia chronicles coming out next year (Drakengard 3 included) my PS3 will explode from playing these games too much.

    • DarthBrian

      Other than still going through KH1.5 right now, I’m playing Pokemon. That’s giving my PS3 quite a bit of a break. :p

  • EX+

    Guys, this guy on Siliconera called hazelnut112 said this is the impressions people got from the new KH3 Trailer:
    ‘-Sora now fights with a style visually similar to Disney’s electrical parade
    -Sora Summons a train from the electrical parade in Disneyland
    -Guns in combos confirmed, we DMC now
    -Traverse Town confirmed
    -Rock Titan is in Traverse Town at a parade, and is fought by Sora
    -Little Green Men cameo, Toy Story confirmed!’
    Anyone else REALLY wanna see that trailer now?
    Here’s the link to the website that talks about the trailer: http://kh13.com/news/43547-impressions-of-the-new-kingdom-hearts-iii-trailer-from-d23-expo

    • Wolf Star

      Guns?? In battle?? Sweet :3.

      • EX+

        That must’ve been what Nomura was saying when he was talking about changing the shape of the Keyblades. I’ve looked on DisneyInteractive, SE’S Japanese YT channel, the official KH3 website and I still couldn’t find the damn trailer. I’ll keep locking through different forums and posts. Even if it’s offscreen, my body needs the KH3 milk. Lol

        • Wolf Star

          Ikr?? Oh man PS3 is going off with a bang!! 2014 is going strong for Ps3 and I’m getting PS4 next month. I’m truly happy how SE is been doing since E3 2013. Also Tales of Symphonia HD and Xillia 2 will be amazing too :)

          • EX+

            I know. People underestimated SE a lot. When this trailer comes out… pants will be replaced.
            I’m even looking at the D23 expo Japanese website and YT channel. Lol.

            • Wolf Star

              Keep looking, I want to see KH3 trailer too x3 also oh man even the trailer for FF XV it’s epic.

              • EX+

                Will do. I looked on google Japan, but still, nothing.

                • Wolf Star

                  KH3 trailer is tonight!!
                  2 more hours to go!! :3

              • EX+

                Well, I found this report of pics from the D23 expo, but all they got was shots of KH2.5 and pics of two guys in Donald and Goofy suits. I can’t believe that they didn’t even get ONE damn pic of the KH3 footage:

                http://www.gamer.ne.jp/news/201310140006/

                • Wolf Star

                  I guess we won’t see it until Jumpa Feista 2013. Or something.

                  • DarkLegacy

                    We should hope for it to be confirmed at Jump Festa. I ain’t waiting next year for an awesome trailer but who knows, it’s in an early development

                    • Wolf Star

                      KH3 trailer is tonight!!! :D in 2 hours!!!

                    • DarkLegacy

                      I just watched it!! :D I am going to get that PS4 and I got KH3 on pre-order! :D

                    • Wolf Star

                      Me too :D I can’t wait to get PS4 next month and oh man preordering KH3 would be amazing :D the trailer is amazing ^^

                    • DarkLegacy

                      Yeah I love that trailer. At least I have 2.5 HD and FFXV to keep me waiting for KH3

                • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

                  They are very strict at these events when it comes to taking pictures. Recording video is typically prohibited.

                  It’s been this way for years. Which is why we typically have to wait for them to release any of the trailers shown at these events. It’s also why you don’t typically find many pictures.

                  You do find a few people who sneak a few pics on occasion. We just have to wait.

              • DarkLegacy

                Me too. That KH3 trailer will be epic and awesome with cool gameplay

            • DarkLegacy

              I was looking on Google for the trailer lol

              • EX+

                I haven’t found shit yet. I’ll keep looking.

                • DarkLegacy

                  I’ll keep doing the same thing too

                  • EX+

                    I still can’t find anything. I guess the convo with creators will seal the deal, but that comes out tomorrow earliest. I think they’ll release the full trailer alongside the CWC, just like the FFXV TGS trailer did.

                    • DarkLegacy

                      I hope so. I’ll be here waiting for the trailer with my fingers crossed

  • Jeffrey Sarmiento

    Hopefully this means that this collection will come out sooner since they haven’t lost any data for any of the 3 games :D

    • InReChee

      Yeah but that could mean that they won’t put as much effort in it or make the UI smoother, but it doesn’t matter to me final mixes is all i want

  • EX+

    The guys at the D23 expo took one useful pic of what happened. Well actually, they took pics of everything aside from KH3 _-_:

  • Learii

    I buy this game just o play Birth of sleep lol

  • artemisthemp

    So it’s PS3 exclusive as I said back, when Kingdom Hearts 3 was announced ad E3.
    Now I just wait for DDD to PlayStation system

  • Bryce Blalex Douglas

    I can finally finish Aqua’s part on BBS now Yessss.

  • Chris Cruz

    Yes. YES DAMNIT!

  • Invisbin

    Aww they made Aquas hair darker :D

    Spoilers for KH2FM Content:

    Can’t wait for Cave of Remembrance, Lingering Sentiment, and Roxas, fights :D That’s potentially…8 New bosses from the top of my head! Limit Drive! Omg.

    • DarkLegacy

      Yeah no kidding. I can’t wait for them either and I also want to fight Organization XIII as Silhouette and Data. But at least I have something to play on while I’m waiting for KH3 and I’ll be playing on FFXV while I’m waiting for it

      • Invisbin

        Yeah, I’m glad we get two unreleased in NA games in one collection. Considering I put it 300+ hours into KH 2, I think that’s gonna double with KH2fm.

        • DarkLegacy

          Agreed. It is good to know that they are bring Final Mix games to our area in HD. Those are the best games to have a lot of content inside them

  • LordKaiser

    NICE!!!!!!!!!! It’s just as I wanted the collection to be!

  • Invisbin

    I think our 2015 game will be KH3D ported to ps3 to hold us until KH3.

    • bloodiOS

      PS3 game in 2015? Come now… Beside, it’s downright impossible to adapt DDD gameplay to the PS3’s control scheme without taking away its sense of uniqueness.

      I think it’s more plausible to expect Birth By Sleep 2 for Vita in 2015 and DDD port to the PS4 in 2016 (complete with touchpad control) with KHIII release date somewhere at the end of 2016 or at beginning of 2017.

      EDIT: *Made wordings a bit clearer*

      • Invisbin

        Impossible? They can simply remove touch controls from the equation. They can remap it to be a combination of buttons, it’s been done before. Look at RE Revelations on Ps3, enough said.

        • bloodiOS

          Unlike Revelations, touch control is extremely vital to DDD gameplay. There’s no way to properly remap those. They might as well start from scratch and reinvent the gameplay in that case. Adapt it the DS4 control and utilize the touchpad makes much more sense.

          • Invisbin

            Ok….Reality shifts and Raising Dream eaters are the only things that come to mind for touch screen.

            As they did for KH1.5, I’m sure they can remap them to reaction commands. Challenging? Maybe. Impossible? Far from it.

            • bloodiOS

              I meant impossible to do while retaining that feeling of uniqueness. I worded that badly.

              • Invisbin

                Then I completely agree.

      • DarkLegacy

        But what if they make KH3D with cutscenes like they did with 358/2 Days and perhaps Coded. besides that is a game that’s been on a 3DS

        • bloodiOS

          You have to realize that the main reason why they decided to adapt 358/2 Days and Re:Coded into series of cutscenes is because the gap in graphics is a huge pain to fill and there’s no way to adapt the whole game without completely upgrading all the assets, which would simply require too much effort. 3DS games’ graphics is at least on the same level as the PSP, and both offers adequate level of quality assets, and so it’s perfectly reasonable to remaster it instead. Beside, Dream Drop Distance is actually much more vital to the series, unlike the other two. If they decide to toss away the gameplay and make it another series of cutscenes, many will rage.

          • DarkLegacy

            I could tell that if they ever make a 3.5 HD and that has been confirmed then I could tell that they would make it cinematic cutscenes. Still I had a reason why they could make it with cutscenes if they were to make another HD Remix and my main reason was Dream Eaters. We all had a 3DS and that game and pretty much raised them and the camera was for them to take snapshots of them and playing mini games but then again, I could be wrong with what I said

            • bloodiOS

              No, not all of us have a 3DS.

              • DarkLegacy

                True, well except for me

              • DarkLegacy

                By the way I also noticed that you’re getting downvoted by someone for a reason

                • bloodiOS

                  Don’t mind it, I have an active hate squad ;)

                  • Samuel Giam

                    You’re not the only who have such a squad. I’m also going to have a active hate squad on GSMArena since their blog uses Disqus as the comment system.

                    • bloodiOS

                      We all grow used to it after awhile ;)

            • Samuel Giam

              Ummm…… By the time there’s a Kingdom Hearts 3.5 Remix it’s not named “Kingdom Hearts HD 3.5 Remix” anymore.

              It would be “Kingdom Hearts 4K 3.5 Remix” since KH III is in true and full HD and if future PS4 updates allow 4K resolution gaming I can guess that FF XIII/XIII-2/LR 4K Remaster and KH 4K 3.5 Remix will be the two future remastered games if FF XVI and KH 4 are announced to be in development.

              • DarkLegacy

                Was there an article about this?

                • Samuel Giam

                  Sorry. I will edit the comment with “if” if you like that way. And please, can you learn to like guesses than comments with proved and validated articles?

                  And if you like people prove themselves with articles before commenting then there’s no reason for Gematsu to use Disqus as Disqus is not just a plain comment system but it’s also one of the simple discussion points used on the internet.

                  • DarkLegacy

                    No I should be sorry so there’s no need to edit your comment since you’ve provided a good point on the new 4K 3.5 Remix and that’s if there will be one

  • PhoenixAutomatic~♪(๑ᴖ◡ᴖ๑)♪~

    Ooh, plenty of noticeable differences in BBS HD. Most prominently, Aqua’s hair, Ven’s armor and Terra’s muscles.
    Hoping Gematsu holds an art contest for 2.5! If so, sign me up. ;)
