    I was hoping for an earlier release date… So a Q1 release outside of Japan is out of the question now.

    usually takes 2 month for English version to come out

  • Raiyu

    Cool, now give us an English release.

    • dusk

      Final mix version was only available in Japan, though.

      • Even though the FM’s usually had an english voice option.

        • dusk

          Because the Final Mix versions are known as International version. The FFX international version even had English language for everything, including menus and subtitles. I’ve been wondering for years why they stop doing that with the Final Mix games.

          • Can’t believe that FFX International had NEW GAME+.
            Dear Square-Enix will you seriously add in NEW GAME+ to your RPG’s.
            Your competitor Namco-Bandai has been doing it for years with the NAMCO TALES series.

  • I hope this comes out here. i’ve never played a Kingdom hearts game.

    • Adurna012

      Well when you get to play it, I hope you like it. Cause your missing out on a truly awesome story.

        @twitter-632952989:disqus and gameplay!

  • English please maybe?

  • new_tradition

    I wonder how long it took to do all the additional voice work for the 358/2 Days. Not to mention completely remaking the scenes in high-rez PS3 graphics.

    Either way, I want it *_*

    • I Don’t think much because it took 2 years to make Kingdom hearts 1 scenes, battle system, sounds, graphics, and worlds so now they only did graphics so it wouldn’t take them as much because its a remake not new scenes

  • Anime10121

    If this isnt released or announced for release by September next year, Import agogo baby!

  • DarthBrian

    So I guess I’ll be getting it a week after that. Usually how long it takes for imports to arrive. :p

  • Sadly this will not be coming outside of japan. The only games we are getting from SE are LIGHTNING RETURNS and Versus if it ever comes out. If you ask me I think Versus should come as a bundle with Type-0 and this KH game for people outside japan. Than again I don’t play KH :D

      *LOL* Disney would throw a major fit if Square Enix decides to prioritize the localization of titles which stars a dominatrix and an emo with duck-butt hair over one that focuses on their lovingly adorable characters.

  • Bloodios

    I wonder if this HD collection being exclusive to the PS3 is a sign that Kingdom Hearts III will also be exclusive to the PlayStation brand…

    I was thinking that this might have been a nice chance for Square Enix to lure in Xbox 360-only owners.

    • sadly this won’t happen, haven’t you heard Tetsuya Nomura likes SONY, and intends to develop his console based games only on PlayStation platforms.

  • DragonSix

    Sounds good, I especially want 2.5 soon after. Too bad square wont bring over anything that doesn’t feature Lightning.

  • Budgiecat

    Whats the reward? A Final Fantasy Versus XIII demo?

  • KingOptimusOrigins111

    English and Europe release date is probably July or August 2013.

  • LordKaiser

    People plz be patient. Wait till they make the 2.5 HD Remix and even Chain of memories HD remix. I think that for us they will place everything on a single disc.

  • PrinceHeir

    can we have this now Square!!!!

  • SexyGorillas

    I dont care when it comes out in US as along as it does come out someday.

  • Where’s “Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep HD” I want to play that on my PS3.

  • Steve

    this better come to America!! I’ve practically grown up with this series!! haha. I heard this also supports the Trophy System! That’ll be cool!!
