Why not just remake it?

This was the original plan, however in order to get the game out in timely manner they had to cut it. However, Nomura still wanted to offer fans 358/2 days in HD, so he opted to remake the game's cut scenes in HD instead.

There are still high hopes he will have an HD remaster of Birth by Sleep for the inevitable KH2.5 HD.

I'd heard that it was because they wanted to put more resources toward XIII-3. That was the reason they didn't just do a remake of the game, and instead opted for HD scenes instead.

I would have killed for this game remade in HD. However, thinking about it as a Kingdom Hearts movie of sorts... Well, that's not such a bad idea...

"I'd heard that it was because they wanted to put more resources toward XIII-3. "

No.... I understand that not many people like the XIII trilogy but you cannot possible blame every small disappoint at Square on it. It would've really placed the game back about 6-8 months extra to remake 358/2 days in HD, which Square CEOs probably weren't liking because they want the game to release at a certain time for financial reasons.

I wasn't personally blaming it, I was just saying that's what I heard...

@Snookies12

You probably saw some troll saying that. This was being worked on by 2 people for a long time, then they brought more people on from a separate team that made the handheld games. I believe its the h.a.n.d. team. They have absolutely no part in any FF game ever. People don't seem to understand that SE has more than 1 team. I hate when people get mad that Nomura is part of development for the main FF games. Sometimes he doesn't even have a big part. He just does the character designs and sometimes he'll have a part in the story making.

And Nomura is more of an organizer and overseer on projects as I understand it. He can be a crucial part to the developements of more than 1 game at once.

"you won’t be required to sit there for almost a full 3 hours to enjoy it."

Hopefully there's a play-all option, I have no problem watching the whole thing at once.

Yeah, here's hoping they add that in as well. I want to sit down and not have to worry about changing each scene. I'm cool with long movies... I own Lord of the Rings... I mean come on, each one of those movies is longer than this lol.
