Kingdom Hearts II, Birth by Sleep, and Coded?

The credits for Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix show scenes from Kingdom Hearts II, Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep, and Kingdom Hearts: Coded, it’s been discovered.

Considering the collection, released today in Japan, only includes high-def versions of Kingdom Hearts: Final Mix, Re: Chain of Memories, and 358/2 Days, Japanese bloggers are speculating the three games shown in the credits form the lineup of the still unannounced, but basically confirmed Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 Remix.

Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix is due out this fall in North America and Europe.

    Well its pretty obvious that there will be a 2.5.. Why would they just release 1 and not the other.

    • hush404

      I think it was more an issue of what exactly they would be putting in the package.

  • I’m just glad ‘Murica’s finally getting both Final Mixes.

    I couldn’t be any happier.

    Lol, I called this back at TGS when just 1.5 was announced. Though I don’t think many people will be surprised that the next collection will contain those 3 titles. DDD is too new to be part of a HD remaster that has a good chance of being out in 2014.

    KH2 FM+ shouldn’t be more than a resolution upscale and new voice work for the FM+ specific scenes. Hopefully it won’t be too difficult to bring BbS FM to PS3. Aside from extra VA work, I think the only variable will be mirage arena integrating PSN or something. Coded though, I don’t know if there’s gonna be much of a theatre mode. I think it’s the shortest KH game, though it was also the game mostly from Mickey’s POV (barring digital Sora’s journey of angst, lol). I will hope for some new, extended reports then.

    (Anyways, just finished watching the Days “movie”. It actually wasn’t entirely what I was expecting. Waaay too many still shots transitioning between scenes, but still pretty awesome. Plus the remastered music is really great <3)

  • Adol Christian

    Let me guess, fall 2014 :(

  • FelixJRPG

    I really hope they put 3D on 2.5…

  • ok,im Glad if there will be a 2.5,Because i never play Birth by Sleep, and Coded so maybe it’s chance make a another one.

    Then i hope there will be a Kingdom Hearts III At Ps4 in ( 2015 ). :)

    OH MY GOD! OH MY GOD!! OH MY GOD!!! Cant freaking wait!!! Only bad thing is ill have too, as this won’t even hit Japan until March of next year at the earliest and fall of next year for the west.
    But what I really wanna know is, what comes next? Nomura has kept the promise made since Days original release of one KH title a year, so what I wanna know is what comes after 2.5. Honestly it’ll still be to early for KH3, so what will the next holdover title be, unless they actually make it the first year we miss and KH3 comes the year after (which probably would still be to fast).

    • Solomon_Kano

      I’m willing to bet the DDD team is gonna be given 3 while Nomura’s team handles Versus. They’ve proven their ability with BBS as well, so I could see him finally just letting them take it away on consoles. So we may yet have KH3 in… what’ll that be? 2015? I could see that. 3 years and some staff that’s worked on HD platforms, and it’d work.

      • Anime10121

        I hope that’s the way it pans out too, as quite honestly I’ve had far more fun with team Osaka’s outtings (BBS, gameplay of revised, and DDD) than I had with the “Kg Tokyo team” (had to put quotations considering they haven’t released a KH game since KH2FM+. I think its high time the Osaka team had its chance to shine on consoles.

        Not that I’d be disappointed if Nomura’s team made the game, its just that I don’t think vs will be released for at the least another year. So if we had to wait on Team Tokyo we’d probably be waiting another 5 years or so.

        • Solomon_Kano

          Yea, if we wait on the Tokyo team… I can’t see KH coming out until 2016 at the earliest. Versus won’t release this year, so that would leave it for 2014 at the earliest. Then, assuming they jump straight into 3 from there, they’d be working two years on KH3. That said, Japanese developers don’t usually make the two year development cycles that western teams have stuck to. So 2016 would be Tokyo working nonstop, and then Osaka would probably still have to be involved.

          So, yea, hopefully Osaka’s gotten the gig and they’re already hard at work. KH3 for PS3 or 4 in 2015 would be beautiful.

  • Someone already finished it… That’s bloody fast… XD

    Personally, it still would have make more sense to put DDD in 2.5… You know, to ‘catch up’ with the series that ‘spans to numerous platforms’…

  • PrinceHeir

    please include Dream Drop Distance please!!!!!!

    Dual Audio is already a given in the japanese release, so what about overseas too??

    • As the first HD compilation will only include English voices (confirmed by SE on EU PSB) I would not hold my breath for dual audio in 2.5 (international) either.

      • PrinceHeir

        sauce please!!

        can’t see on the EU PSN blog(only said they’re bringing it in)

        if that’s the case freaking disappointing.

        why the hell did you have to remove something that it’s already there?

        JPN versions are always the best for square enix games(Dual Audio, like Deus Ex, Hitman, Tomb Raider etc)



          Comments 1, 10 and 27 are what you’re looking for. English voices only but subs in the 5 major EU languages. Final Mix also including German and French VOs.

          Didn’t know that JP versions of (western) SE published games include the original English VOs as well. Thought Japanese versions only feature Japanese VAs. Thanks for the tip.

          • PrinceHeir

            that sucks :

            anyway let’s just hope they don’t screw the cover ^^

            • I fear for the worst as they said they have not finalized the EU cover yet. Be prepared for a huge-ass fugly HD-Classics logo “adorning” the cover -_-

              Once I’ve got cash again I’mma import the Japanese version. No Japanese voices and potentially fugly cover are a no-go!

              • PrinceHeir

                yeah don’t like the HD Collection labels they put on these collection :(

  • LordKaiser

    The most likely candidate for 2.5 is Birth by Sleep.

    It’s a prequel but also a flashback from KH2 Final Mix ending so it makes sense to include it.
