“The recent KINGDOM HEARTS -HD 1.5 ReMIX- announcement was only for the Japanese market,” a Square Enix rep told Gematsu.
This is soooooo not helping outside of Japan....
Square enix like money, they just don't know how to get it. Wada's fortune teller was probably involved again http://static2.fjcdn.com/co...
Whatever, it wasn't a great Collection to begin with. The 3 titles I want are KH 1&2 and BBS.
Well, this was a punch in the balls for the rest of the world. I guess they just don't need the money then.
Square Enix is the biggest troll ever. :I
So it's not Kojima anymore? :P
Don't worry.. you can enjoy final fantasy 13-3
If you know the story whats stopping you importing it since ps3 isn't disc locked. I know it is not the same as hearing the english voices but like I said if you know what happens it really is all about gameplay. As for the people who were waiting for this game to they can catch up on kingdom hearts have fun learning japenese
At least it's just an HD Remake... Fatal Frame 4 was bought out by Nintendo and released only in Japan. Even if it were released worldwide I still wouldn't be able to play it because it's not on a console that I own anymore.
It will come outside of Japan. Square will announce things in its own time, not when some foreign website comes knocking.
i got 3 letters for squareenix WTF release this game in the west dammit square really pisses me off
I seriously don't understand their Business as of late.
Lol people it's SE so I am confirming this will be available mid 2013 to rest of the world lol WADA loves money too much. Right now they want the people n Japan to over pay for this like every game than we will get a cheaper version at 39.99. Also SE will announce at TGD next year KH HD collection version 1.0 which will also be exclusive to Japan. Ly to come it in states First of all this hd collection makes no sense with the games being included Than they are saying its for Japan only it's like when there's a bag of money staring at SE they will still make a u turn to go in opposite direction lol
"Wada likes money to much"? If he did how come he don't support what his fans want We asked for final fantasy 7 remake which we all know will sell millions upon millions but did he give it to us NO Asked for kingdom hearts 3 did he give it to us NO Asked for versus 13 which was suppose to be released 2 years ago But instead we got 13-2 and 13-3( coming soon)
princejb134 he loves money too much and he is extremely stupid? so about my incomplete statement earlier SE have franchises that fans want games made of but they keep making KH sequels or prequels on handheld and not sure if FF7 will sell millions i think you over stating it there, many fans will say been there done that before. It will sell well but not those millions you speak of and versus 13 will be out hopefully before this gens over but i am not counting on it
I feel like I'm cracking up inside because I just can't help feel so helpless when Square Enix don't seem to know what the f*** they are doing. FF7, FF8 and a FF9 remake FFX HD release date FF13 Versus release date/official trailer, new gameplay/info Kingdom Hearts 3 Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD Remix in NA/EU FF Type-0 NA/EU Yet instead we get more crappy FF13 related stuff....YAY ¬¬ Are they that stupid that they don't know what their fanbase really wants or do they know but are so proud that they don't want to admit FF13 failed sso they are trying to squeeze as much out of the title untill we accept it...well thats not going to happen because FF13 is like Meg from Family Guy, nobody likes her, nobody cares for her and we all want her to shut up.
While i personally enjoyed 13, i think making Lightning Returns NOW was a problem. They shouldve waited A LONG WHILE for that.I do agree they should announce more info on pretty much everything that ISNT Lightning Returns. Although you can kind of assume that since theyre doing the KH collections that there will soon be KH3.
Exactly. I'm having trouble understanding SE decisions once again. Instead of releasing releasing the remix with all KH games included they decided to release it in parts in an obvious attempt maximize their profits, but then they restrict themselves to japan? Which completely throws maximizing profits out the window. Not to mention all of the games you brought up that most people in NA/EU would rather buy over FF13-3 not releasing. I just don't understand SE at all.
But... I actually like Meg.
Gotta be kidding me.
jajajaj SE is completely out of their minds.
i knew it was going to be Japan only oh well import here i come
SQUARE ENIX is dead
Square Enix is officially lobotomized.
Squaresoft and Enix have been dead since the merger, knew it was a bad thing then and they've proven it over time.
So.. do they not want money?
It's coming. You really think they're gonna answer a no-name website and pre-empt their own PR plans?
I'm assuming it will come in some form eventually. I just wanna play KH1 in HD and with trophies.
I knew you were a Square Enix fanboy. Admit it, they are a fuc*ed up company
It's true I enjoy their games. And I don't get why everyone's acting like a KH Collection wont go westward. Obviously they split up the collections to get more money. A great way of getting even more money is releasing it world wide. I wouldn't say they're Fuc**d up. They're just all about the business. As long as they keep bringing me games I like I don't really care as long as prices don't become outrageous.
Not making the initial announcement when they - should - know damn well the news would get out is as disrespectful as breaking up something you're offering another market as a collection. Nevermind all the BS that been going on surrounding many, many, FF announcements. They need to be upfront and frank, not do the now usual tease and exclude. Hell, they could put this out - THEN - put out KH2. @"As long as they keep bringing me games I like I don't really care" The point being made, that unless you import it and know Japanese, they aren't bringing it to you. That at this point and time, though they could easily say, they're saying that they have no plans to bring it to you.
Maybe in the west they will release a full collection with number 2 included.
That's definitely what I am feeling. Remaking games in Japan seems to be somewhat standard. Most of the Final Fantasy games get a initial release then an international release which receives many of the improvements the western releases got. If they aren't going release remix I hope they bundle the next collection with this one to make a collection that they KNOW will sell over here.
They will probably release a full collection only on Wii U that releases everywhere, because you know SE.
Its PS3 exclusive keep wishing.
And ME1 was an xbox exclusive and that going to PS3.
That's Bioware this is Square Enix. Kingdoms Hearts has always been more popular on PlayStation than Nintendo and each Kingdom Hearts game has always released on one specific platform for all regions. This hd collection will be announce for America soon and it will still be a PS3 Exclusive.
Although I agree KH began with sony, don't be stupid. Sony: KH1, KH2, BBS, Re:CoM Nintendo: CoM, 358/2 Days, Re:Coded, DDD Looks pretty even to me, Bro.
wow i was so excited what a letdown. they will probably be up for sale in the coming years because they have not made anything worth playing in years.
I'm hoping they release a HD collection to NA with both KH1 and KH2.
this actually ruined my night
Because they're going to announce it when they're ready instead of answering some American website? That really ruined your night? The game will go abroad without a doubt.
Guys relax read it again it says Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD Remix Announcement!! only for japan. Keyword "Announcement" I'm pretty sure they will make a EU/US announcement with an English dub trailer.
I guess they don't like our money. Dem bastards.
Fuck square. Take your ff 13's and jam them up your asses!
just when I thought square enix was getting back on track......they pulled this s*** makes me want to b**** slap everyone who thought that it was a good idea to make it japan only
I think it will be a Digital release in NA and EU.
I'm not gonna take this as confirmation but, IF WADA is really this stupid then Its a very big and missed opportunity! The west has never gotten the full KH experience because the Final Mix editions of the KH games were japan exclusive. Its damn shame. They need to get wada out of Square, before the company dissolves into nothing more than a paper weight company. >_<
sometimes Square Enix is just... argh. I'm hoping it gets localized later down the road but I think someone needs to really give Wada and SE a piece of our minds. Up front.
Thats cuz the west will get the complete set once 2.5 & 3 end up releasing.. Operation Mickey mouse will need to be started
If it does come to the point where they don't release anything in the West then yes Operation Mickey Mouse will put Rainfall's efforts to shame.
Since the PS3 is region free we can still import it, but we don't know if it will have the english dub included. Overall just some very head scratching decisions made this gen by Square I don't see the reasoning on why they neglected the PlayStation brand so much this gen considering it was their main profit platform the previous 2 gens. I am referring to the main console PS3 as the PSP had some quality exclusive games from Square like KH:BBS, Dissidia's, 3rd birthday yes I did enjoy this game.
I think there'll announce it for outside Japan.
WTF. Well, just trying to look on the bright side of things, maybe the US version (if we ever get one) will include KH1, KH2, Re:Chain of Memories, and BBS as well as the HD cutscenes for Days, Re:Coded, and KH3D
I hope to god this a mistake. OR SQUARE REALLY SCREWED over oversea Fans. Final mix exclusive to japan BS.
The rep told Gematsu what he was allowed to say anything beyond what has been already announced. It isn't his business to confirm the existence of the KH 1.5 HD ReMIX outside of Japan. IMO, all he just said was something more like 'this': "GTFO! Go ask the NA & EU Square-Enix reps for a damn confirmation! Can't you see??? I'm doing my goddamn business, goddamit!!!" xD So, guys, don't get too upset or anything. We know Wada is only interested in making a profit of our beloved franchises. However, I don't think Nomura-san will not do anything about it. I mean, they put a lot of effort to deliver an HD Collection (or half of one, considering the absence of KHII & KH:BbS), with a remake of all KH 358/2 Days' cutscenes, to the fans. It's only logical to announce it firstly for Japan (it IS a Japanese game after all) and THEN to the rest of the world. Of course, Wada can always act as Wada and blow everything up! Fingers crossed...
Square-Enix, not knowing wtf they are doing since this gen started. Your fans WANT KH on PS3! Not just your Japan fanbase!
People are stupid. Read the bloody quote “The recent KINGDOM HEARTS -HD 1.5 ReMIX- announcement was only for the Japanese market,” Just because it hasn`t been announced outside of Japan, doesn`t mean it won`t happen...
You're the only one here talking sense.
I dont even see how anyone could possibly even think otherwise. The most likely KH game to not be released internationally was RE - chain of memories, which was originally a Japan exclusive bundles with KH2FM, and even that got released in the end... There should be no doubt in anyones mind that HD will be released overseas.
Also the vast majority of gamers don't care.
But why... im not a business mayjor but im sure its not good business move to exclude a reigion or country from a product you're selling. Then again im bias I suppose, I would like a kingdom hearts HD collection for my PS3.
It's coming since nomura is not breaking his one game a year promise.
Settle down, settle down. Everybody says this for PR reasons to make the actual announcement more meaningful. It's the same reason Microsoft and Sony still deny having next-gen consoles in development even though everybody knows it's going on. If there's one thing we can still rely on from Square Enix, it's that the publisher is unabashedly unafraid to remake or rerelease old content on new platforms. We'l get it, worry not.
Until they officially state that it's not coming outside of Japan, this means next to nothing. Don't lose any sleep over this, people.
and thats why i love my ps3..region free so fck u wada,i still gonna do what i want,when i want gonna order this once i get 2 games i need inc month
Well that was something I did not want to hear...but I sort of saw it coming. Seriously though, I hope that they release it over here...that would be phenomenal. It's definitely something that the fans want.
Pretty sure it'll be announced for the US/EUR.. but what's the big deal? PS3 games are region free - just import that bad boy if it's so important to you, wouldn't be surprised if it has an english track on it too.
Thanks God the PS3 is Region Free
