    Hey everybody! We've got a nice bit of news this weekend, it seems--Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD Remix has been confirmed for localization, and we've got a look at the upcoming box art. The game drops in Japan on March 14th, still no dates for the rest of the world but we'll keep you updated.


    In the meantime, we've got some nice new screens from the HD remaster of KINGDOM HEARTS 358/2 Days. Unfortunately the game will not be playable, but the HD remix will feature a three hour cutscene movie to recap the game's events.

      hmmm interesting i guess we will receive 3 diffrent themes from each game, now this would be hard to choose to make it as your main theme ! lol XD

      It's nice to know that even the voiced scenes from the original DS game will look better as well

      I'm liking the way this is turning out. Glad to see that scene with Xigbar in Agrabah made the cut.

      What I'm most curious about is how they'll handle, or avoid, the scenes from the first couple days where the members who went to Castle Oblivion take Roxes to Twilight Town. They're kind of tutorial-ish, but they also have some good conversations that are semi-important. Also wondering about the Beast's Castle mission where Xion can't use the Keyblade. I'm thinking about these two parts in particular because showing them would probably mean updating textures for a lot of locations that could otherwise wait until the next HD collection.

      Anyway I'm glad it's closer to 3 hours than 2. A lot happens in this game, so that gives them some breathing room.

      I think they'll only include the important dialogue (like how Zexion talks about Kingdom Hearts). Speaking of which, I'll try to contact Vincent Corazza (VA of Zexion) in the next few days to see if he recorded lines yet (although I'm not sure if Square-Enix is more stricter this time after what happened with Jesse's tweets, so he may not be able to say...)

      Oh, man, oh man... you know what I'm hoping? I'm hoping that Alyson Stoner plays Xion. Here, and for the rest of the series. Even if Hayden Panettiere is available to play Kairi, Alyson should be Xion anyway. Anyone else want to start up a "Hayden is Kairi, Alyson is Xion" petition?

      Well, this was on her official website recently:


      Considering the only video game other than KH she voiced for was some Phineas and Ferb game, I think you can guess who this "familiar character" is. But take it with a grain of salt for now.

      Those images look amazing! :O I can't wait until the release! :D

      3 hour movie? Hmm not sure how I feel about this, but I am certainly excited for this. I can't wait for a release date so I can preorder it ;n;

      I must buy this game. I hope they have hedgehog sized ps3 controllers.

      Those pictures look awesome. :D I love how much better it looks than the DS version. Now, I really want this game.

      Man do I love Square right about now.

      The trophy support is a nice touch (though getting a trophy just for viewing everything does seem a bit odd/tedious) and those scenes look far better than they've ever been. Thank you Libre.

      I'm going to get directions to the Square Enix NA branch and go hug the building, and take a picture as proof, because this will be so much greatness it can't be contained. Now excuse me while I go have a fanboy moment

      It is weird but from the way things are going, this is probably my sole hope for a Platinum trophy. Assuming they offer platinum for each individual game and not the entire collection, that is...
    15. Cat~
      It would be really odd if they did the latter since it's a collection. Still, where they'd fit that trophy is beyond me.

      Yeah I figure it might be something like this, having a platinum just for watching videos is just too ridiculous, especially for Nomura's first incursion into trophies.

      >: why don't we leave my pitiful skills out of this

      It just saddens me, on the whole the trophies I've seen have been fair but Platinum should mean something.
