Omg yes! Please bring this to the states!

Oh yes it includes 358/2. Now this is a must buy for me. Sucks it doesn't include 2. That was the best one.

crxss1406d ago

this is a joke. why not come out with all of them together? i'm not gonna spend $80 for what should be included in one package. guess i'll wait for the individual titles to be released on the PS Store. I only really want 1 + 2 + BBS.

DragonKnight1406d ago

@crXss: I agree with you. I can't understand why people are applauding SE for this. This is not an HD collection. This is 1 and a half games and some cutscenes for $40. Re:CHoM is NOT the game people wanted in an HD collection when they thought about a KH HD Collection. Most assumed KH1, KH2, and then maybe Birth By Sleep. Or all of the games. It's not like PS3 couldn't handle that with a dual layer Blu-Ray disc. This is just sad.

lastdual1406d ago

It's only been announced for Japan. Maybe the western release will get both games, otherwise Square can forget selling me a copy.

With HD collections like God of War, this kind of gimped release doesn't cut it anymore. Either pack all the major releases onto the disk (which they could do with room to spare) or make sure this sells for no more than $19.99.

Splitting the series up to try and gouge customers - Square is acting like a website that splits a simple story into 15 pages just to get more hits...

Ok, let's set this in perspective.
KH 1,5 will include, KH 1 HD, RE:Chain of Memories HD and cutscenes from 358/2 Days. This is 2 full games in HD.

So KH 2,5 Will most likely include: KH 2 HD, Birth By Sleep HD and cutscenes from re: Coded.

So each package comes with 2 games and cutscenes and probably some information about the DS games.

I think releasing 2 collections is quite fair, God of War only had 2 games in it's collection and Shadow and Ico also had only two.
Releasing four HD games + a load of cutscenes from two games would be amazing but you can't possibly expect that from SE?

I'm just happy though they could have had KH 1 and 2 in the same collection and then the others in a other one, cause this is forcing us to buy both.

Gamer19821405d ago

Why put 2 with 1 when you can charge for both? S-E know people will pay for both and are very clever doing this.

Om3ga3701405d ago (Edited 1405d ago )

Does anyone not remember that the God of War Saga just recently came out? I don't see why Square Enix just couldn't put ALL 5 games (Kingdom Hearts 1, Kingdom Hearts 2, Birth By Sleep, Re:Chain of Memories, and Re:Coded) all on one disk like Santa Monica Studios did! Seriously... :/

Just wait for Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX.

jc485731406d ago

obviously they were planning on releasing two HD collections.

Outside_ofthe_Box1406d ago (Edited 1406d ago )

Yeah I'm waiting till either they release all versions into HD or until they release some special edition that includes all the games in HD. I'm not letting SE nickel and dime me.

Ritsujun1406d ago

aww Monkeycan8 didn't get it

Godchild10201406d ago (Edited 1406d ago )

There will be a 2.5 with Kingdoms Hearts 2, Re:coded and Birth By Sleep. Or maybe Dream Drop Distance before we see Kingdom Hearts 3.

I will pick this up when it comes to the states.

Instigator1406d ago

It doesn't say anything about 358/2 Days being included, just that you'll be able to watch the cutscenes.

Oh, well. Excited for this anyway, but would rather have the second game too since 1 and 2 is the only ones I haven't played.

Monkeycan81406d ago

They just changed that it did say that it was part of it before.

Instigator1406d ago

Oh, I see. Scratch that, then.

They should have included one more game, though. 2 titles for an HD collection doesn't seem like a lot.

Outside_ofthe_Box1406d ago (Edited 1406d ago )

Um, how come SE didn't just put all the games in one disc?

I'm not buying this because obviously SE is trying to nickel and dime Kingdom Hearts fans.

I'll wait until all versions are released to buy it. I'm pissed off about this because I've been wanting a HD remake for all KH games for the longest.

showtimefolks1406d ago

why not 2?

i am guessing there will be another that include few others. My thing is do what god of war collection just did have all the games and charge us regular price of 59.99 instead of us buying 2 different ones each for 39.99

i know gow collection is 39.99 not 59.99. my point is to have a complete collection

callahan091406d ago

They'll probably release another collection of Kingdom Hearts 2, Coded, and Birth By Sleep. I dunno about Coded, though, since it's kind of different. Maybe Dream Drop Distance instead? Or maybe all 4? I dunno...

Either way, I'm excited to play these games!

adorie1406d ago

Your excitement has blinded you from the bigger picture here.

Square Enix should be ashamed of themselves for doing this.

xtremeimport1405d ago

The gaming industry is becoming like the movie industry.

HD remakes out the ass. I like them though, but lets not let this get outta hand. *434industries*

"Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX" What is that mean, im worry

Snookies121406d ago

I shall attempt to explain good sir...

1.5 essentially means it's got KH1 and KH1.5 which is Chain of Memories. It could also possibly be hinting at 1.5 as well for the fact that we're getting Kingdom Hearts 1 (Final Mix) which was a Japan only release (at least from what I've heard, we're getting the Final Mix version...)

The ReMIX part I believe was a little play on Kingdom Hearts Re: Chain of Memories for the PS2 which I'm sure is the version that is included. So "(Re)MIX".

:D

SUCKxITxEZ1406d ago

lol i remember this unfortunatly named good fellow. always so informative, despite sharing names with the beast of jersey shore.

Snookies121405d ago (Edited 1405d ago )

@SUCKxITxEZ - Lol! Just as long as people know my name came well before that, it's all good...

black9111406d ago

where is my Kingdom Hearts 3 PS3!!!!!!

TheLyonKing1406d ago

Yeah I agree I am tired of waiting but this should hopefully tide me over while I am waiting.

M_Prime1406d ago

i wouldn't mind getting this collection on XBOX360. I always wanted to play them but never had a PS2

fucadastates1406d ago

then you will just play them on ps3... ?

CGI-Quality1405d ago

Then you'll need a PS3. It won't be on the 360 - wouldn't make sense anyway, given the history is with Nintendo and Sony and this will sell a lot in Japan.

KentBlake1406d ago

YES! YES! I'm so happy right now!

And since they will include the "smaller" games, it seems almost certain that a KH 2.5 or something like that is in the works too, including KH2 and BBS.

YES!

Snookies121406d ago

Just as long as they're the Final Mix versions. ;]

SnipeySnake1405d ago

Really hope 2.5 is gonna be KH2:FM, 3D with BBS cutscenes...i don't want it to be BBS with 3D cutscenes. Or better yet have all 3 games in it.

RmanX10001406d ago

Wasnt Re:Chain of Memories like really bad? Why remake THAT and not just 2??

Omar911406d ago

It really wasnt too bad. From the vivid memory I have of it I remember having a good time playing it.

Carl_Shocker1406d ago

Probably because it tied into KH2...you really needed to play it to understand KH2. I'm hoping when KH Remix 2.5 comes out it will include KH Dream Drop Distance

MisterAV1406d ago

I really hope that, KH 2.5 with KH2,BBS and 3D, and they can't release it now because 3D is just released a few months ago.

lasersquash1406d ago

Honestly it is one of the best if you consider quality character development for the main characters (until sora had to lose his memory -_-)

Snookies121406d ago

Nah man... If you're asking if the PS2 Re: Chain of Memories was bad because of the awful reviews it got, don't listen to that at all. The only reason it got those is because it used a bit of content that was from the first game. The GBA version got a lot of great reviews, and it's essentially a remake of it with voice acting and cutscenes. Not sure how that could be a bad thing. Plus the game is quite fun once you get used to the card system.

-Gespenst-1405d ago

Chain of Memories had a PS2 version, and no it's not bad. It has an absolutely awesome combat system if you can get used to it. Also the story is really good. In narrative form terms I think it's one of the more interesting ones out of all the KH games.

The only thing I wasn't too keen about was the level design. It's kind of like a dungoen crawler and so it can be a bit monotonous, but you decide the contents of each room with these cards you collect, and that aspect is pretty sweet.

I really want to play the ps2 version.
