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.

So about this again... http://dualpixels.com/profi...
crxss  +   1163d 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.
DragonKnight  +   1163d 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.

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.
Gamer1982  +   1162d 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.
Om3ga370  +   1162d 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.
jc48573  +   1163d ago
obviously they were planning on releasing two HD collections.
Outside_ofthe_Box  +   1163d 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.

Godchild1020  +   1163d 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.

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.
Monkeycan8  +   1163d ago
They just changed that it did say that it was part of it before.
Instigator  +   1163d 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.
WeskerChildReborned  +   1163d ago
Outside_ofthe_Box  +   1163d 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.

showtimefolks  +   1163d 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
callahan09  +   1162d 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!
adorie  +   1162d ago
Your excitement has blinded you from the bigger picture here.

Square Enix should be ashamed of themselves for doing this.
xtremeimport  +   1162d 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
Snookies12  +   1162d 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".

Yeah I agree I am tired of waiting but this should hopefully tide me over while I am waiting.
M_Prime  +   1162d ago
i wouldn't mind getting this collection on XBOX360. I always wanted to play them but never had a PS2
fucadastates  +   1162d ago
then you will just play them on ps3... ?
CGI-Quality  +   1162d 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.
KentBlake  +   1163d 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.

Snookies12  +   1162d ago
Just as long as they're the Final Mix versions. ;]
SnipeySnake  +   1162d 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.
RmanX1000  +   1163d ago
Wasnt Re:Chain of Memories like really bad? Why remake THAT and not just 2??
Omar91  +   1163d ago
It really wasnt too bad. From the vivid memory I have of it I remember having a good time playing it.
Carl_Shocker  +   1163d 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
MisterAV  +   1162d 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.
lasersquash  +   1163d 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 -_-)
Snookies12  +   1162d 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-  +   1162d 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.
cfountain  +   1163d ago
DAY 1!!!!!!!!!!!
sdozzo  +   1163d ago
Cool. I've never had the chance to play them. Do we know when or if it will come to the U.S.?
Omar91  +   1163d ago

So only 1 and chain of memories will have trophies?

NoTheMama  +   1163d ago
hell yeah!!
Very, very excited about this!!
C L O U D  +   1163d ago
Final mix included? I hope...nevertheless...DAY ONE!

I would've been happy if it was just Kingdom Hearts 1 but to get all this as well...never had the chance to play them... :')

KH: Final mix, KH: CoM, and HD video for 358/2 days is stated on the SE teaser site.

I can't wait to play them again.

Watch the plat for 2.5 have the release date for FFvs13...

Why not just make 1 HD collection with all the KH games?
Qrphe  +   1163d ago
Because potential profit?

They know we'd buy the whole HD collection even if it came in 7 separate parts.

Dynasty  +   1163d ago
I like what they're doing with only including KH1, COM, and 358/2 days. One can assume KH 2.5 will include KH2, BBS, and KH3D?

Either way they couldn't have package this any better. Thanks Square Enix! :D

TenkoTAiLS  +   1162d ago
I doubt it will have 3D as it is still a very recent title. My guess would be KH2 Final Mix, KH BBS Final Mix and the cutscenes from KH Re:Coded in HD. So it is set up just like this release.
BigStef71  +   1163d ago
This is great news!!! I never go to experience this great series on ps2 so I will most definitely be picking this up for ps3

Still think it should of included a playable 358 days, it was on the DS years ago I think the exclusiveness has worn off, it has for Chain of Memroies.
Godchild1020  +   1163d ago
I think it's Re:Chain of memories, because that is the one that came to the PS2 and not Chain of Memories.
slaton24  +   1162d ago
same exact game just redone in ps2 graphics with voice acting....i had gba version and now have ps2 version

ShinnosukeRFD  +   1163d ago
Damn just imagine how many people who love KH own a PS3 by now and are HUNGRY for any KH game on the system. It will sell 1 million minimum easily.
Saturne3  +   1163d ago
great news! hoping that KH2 and KH birth By sleep are next.
DivineAssault  +   1163d ago

Yep, totally incapable of fully explaining why I'm so excited. I haven't been this energetic about a video game announcement for this entire generation. For serious. YEAH!
LordMe  +   1163d ago
So... They are splitting it up? Well, that kinda sucks.

But oh well, at least they are going to do it! Hopefully this is the "Final Mix" version of the game.

Wow, that sure is lazy of them to just skip remaking the easiest game in the kh series to remake. Like seriously all they have to do is to add pallet swap of kh 1 enemies, add weapons for models, and recreate the outer islands of never land. The rest would be copy and paste of KH 1, Chain of memories, and 2.-_-
