Square Enix has announced a new Kingdom Hearts HD Collection for the PlayStation 3.
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...
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.
@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.
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.
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.
obviously they were planning on releasing two HD collections.
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.
aww Monkeycan8 didn't get it
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.
They just changed that it did say that it was part of it before.
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.
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.
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
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!
Your excitement has blinded you from the bigger picture here. Square Enix should be ashamed of themselves for doing this.
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
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
lol i remember this unfortunatly named good fellow. always so informative, despite sharing names with the beast of jersey shore.
@SUCKxITxEZ - Lol! Just as long as people know my name came well before that, it's all good...
where is my Kingdom Hearts 3 PS3!!!!!!
Yeah I agree I am tired of waiting but this should hopefully tide me over while I am waiting.
i wouldn't mind getting this collection on XBOX360. I always wanted to play them but never had a PS2
then you will just play them on ps3... ?
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.
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!
Just as long as they're the Final Mix versions. ;]
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.
Wasnt Re:Chain of Memories like really bad? Why remake THAT and not just 2??
It really wasnt too bad. From the vivid memory I have of it I remember having a good time playing it.
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
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.
Honestly it is one of the best if you consider quality character development for the main characters (until sora had to lose his memory -_-)
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.
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.
Cool. I've never had the chance to play them. Do we know when or if it will come to the U.S.?
Yes!!!!! So only 1 and chain of memories will have trophies?
O_O *SCREAMS LIKE A SCHOOL GIRL* OMG YESSS!
hell yeah!! Very, very excited about this!!
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...
my brother just fainted, im still in shock
good but best was 1HD,2HD,BbsHD included one disc and versus demo.
This right here... Oh and make those the final mix versions.
Square Enix finally did something right now please bring it to the states
Why not just make 1 HD collection with all the KH games?
Because potential profit? They know we'd buy the whole HD collection even if it came in 7 separate parts.
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
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.
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
AND MORE ... KINGDOM HEARTS COMING FOR PC ( Browser Based ) http://translate.google.com... My Jaw just dropped after hearing this ... Parasite eve remake .. and my life complete !
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.
I think it's Re:Chain of memories, because that is the one that came to the PS2 and not Chain of Memories.
same exact game just redone in ps2 graphics with voice acting....i had gba version and now have ps2 version
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.
great news! hoping that KH2 and KH birth By sleep are next.
this would be good to port on vita.. Then the next installations to follow.. PS has been getting all the attention at TGS.. Wheres the other companies announcements?
Yes! Never really played Kingdom Hearts on ps2, now theres no excuse not to play it! Can't wait
OMG YES!!!! FINALY I GET KINGDOM HEARTS ON MY PS3!! If this Has a massive gap between jap and and west release dates I'm importing all the talking will be in English anyway ^^
Mmmmmm Ansem's monologue in glorious HD.... I used to have that sucker memorized.
I just can't even concentrate right now. Holy swearwords. MOTHER FRAKKING KINGDOM HEARTS! 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!
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.
