Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix is coming to Japan next week on March 14th but gamers in North America and Europe will have to wait until this fall to get their hands on a copy. Luckily Square Enix had a demo of the game to play at a SCEK event today.
It looks so good
It really does look very well done in terms of re-texturing and clarity. Also love the triangle button being used for actions now, as well as the camera being mapped to the right stick. Can't wait to get this game when it comes to NA. :]
Probably won't come to America till September or October.
could it be possible that this is running on the crystal tools engine? Retextures, 60 FPS, higher res, smoother animation... and is that motion blur i see during the fight scene?
will get this but still doesn't make sense how SE packaged it, it should be KH1-2 and than 2nd pack can contain other ones. or maybe make one with 3-4 games and charge full $60 either way looks great can't wait to play this, missed the original release so this will be brand new for me, have heard nothing but good things about the series
@showtimefolks The other games packaged take place between KH1 and KH2 storywise, so it makes sense to have those in this package. Obviously I would rather get both 1 and 2 but I think its about time and of course extra money.
Can't wait to get my gruby little hands on this!
Is it just me, or does the platforming look a little bit improved? I remember in KH1 that Sora used to jump and then just...drop. Which sometimes made the platforming hard. He seems to jump a little better now.
maybe the person playing is better than you? haha
Well that doesn't make much sense, since the jumping issue is a part of the game design and has nothing to do with the player. It's not a big issue. Just something that could be slightly improved upon for the HD release.
i was joking -_-
Oops. Sorry, it's hard to tell if people are joking in text sometimes. :O
lol yes, ive been told, which is why i put that friendly haha at the end, it doesnt work all the time :(
First remix was in English, this HD 1.5 remix video is played in Japanese. Might in other words be possible to choose language! I'll keep my hopes up for now. If you change your system language it might change for you too like in Ratchet & Clank. Looking forward to more information and to test it out.
Okay,so we have established what the PS2 version looks like with the color turned up on the tv, so when does the PS3 version get here?
still with jaggies??? a cartoony, simple graphic game on ps2 from 2002..... thats crazy, what can't they apply proper anti aliasing, there's jaggies all over the stairs and on most straight lines you can play it on pc in native 1080p at 60 frames for free if you own the original, and there are ZERO jaggies pcsx2; http://www.youtube.com/watc...
wtf is a jaggies
How do you not know what the Jaggies are? Here's one -
Jagged edges of objects in games is what he is referring to
It's called "Aliasing" genius.
only on PS3 and ps2..
...and PC emulation
...and pc, ...like 95% of ps2 games, all free on pc, no need to buy over priced lowly 720p remakes that only run at 30 frames per second. if you own the original game, you just pop the disc in your pc's dvd drive and play at WAY higher resolutions than the ps3 will ever do with massive anti aliasing impossible on ps3
Retexturing >>>> Upscaling. If this is an indication I'll be very happy with FFX HD even though I played it on PC recently. I could play that game another 10 times easily.
it could have all the smooth edges it wants but retextured and improved native resolutions always beat back AA
Cant believe its been years since I played KH1 and KH2. Still cant believe we havent gotten a great conclusion to this series. Anyways, game looks great. Wonder if SE will finally add Sora to PSASBR as a code like Zeus and Isaac for GoW: Ascension.
only on ps3 this is the best magical disney / ff series out there field with nostalgia. you ps3 haters will never be able to play this unless you cough up some dough like you should of had long ago for a ps3. i mean you aint buying games for your x360 so might as well put that saved cash towards a ps3 and ps4. stop buying all that crap cod dlc for real.
so did the upgrade the graphice by 0.5 ? It looks the same......
day 1 buy for me, it's been so long since i played this game!
Can't wait. My favorite game ever.
Further in depth of this video, it seems they are using motion blur, runs at 60 FPS on 720p. Filmed from a camera :) Played this all the time when I was younger. This is one of my favorite series on PS2! I got all the keyblades, beat Sephiroth (he was damn hard) so I must get this baby when this comes to Europe!
Oh the nostalgic feel is kicking in! I still remember Ansums* lines at the end just before you fight him word for word lol thats how much I loved this game when I was a kid.
so will tarzan place be here or will it be removed?
I would love it if Square Enix would just come on already with KH3... They started working on it how long ago? And keep pushing it aside for crappy side-story spinoff games that aren't even on a console.. Please, just focus on Kingdom Hearts 3, I am begging!
They have not started production on Kingdom Hearts 3. Nomura said he would begin once Versus XIII comes out.
It's so beautiful!
if square enix can finally get on the ball and start pumping out these HD remakes, they might reclaim some respect from their old fans.
I remember when Sora could use magic before he left Destiny Islands..oh wait..
Perhaps that has something to do with it being the "Final Mix" version of Kingdom Herats. They made quite a few changes in the game, it's great we will finally get an English version of the extended edition of the game.(I haven't played the "Final Mix" version so i don't know, just guessing)
