IDK, I hope it's a full fledged game, but since it was made on the DS they would most likely have to remake it from the ground up so chances are that it'll be cutscenes only as well.

You know, Re:coded was such a blast to play, that I naturally hope for the game too, but at the least we should expect cute little cutscenes of it. I actually hope they blend it a bit better than with Days, with no text to read, including fight scenes, etc.

I wish it was just cutscenes too. I mean, yeah sure playing would be better, but the game was really arduous.

I think it will most likely be cutscenes, unfortunately. I would love to have it redone and playable though but I know that will take even more time than just adapting it into a "movie" like Days. It is my favorite game out of the three that use that command deck.

I would want the game(could do without the Avatar menu maybe: too many sectors there for a console remake) but it will probably be just cutscenes with some filler.

I expect another visual novel like 358/2 Days. I kinda half expect them to surprise us by adding a remake of DDD.

Love the game but I see it getting the days treatment as well.

Re: Do You Think Coded Will be a Cinematic Film Like Days?

Coded being a short game that isn't very cutscene heavy, I think it merits a full game. Square Enix may think otherwise, however.



We can safely assume it'll be a cinematic film until announced otherwise.

Most of the important cutscenes can still be remade. They'd fill up well under an hour.

It'd be nice, but I don't think it'll happen. Not a lot of people liked Coded.

I don't think it is so much about LIKING as it is bringing new players up to speed. In my opinion, CoM was the LEAST appealing game. (tho I will admit, it grew on me) The best way to sell it to both old fans and new would be to simply make it into cutscenes (Coded, that is). They definitely won't remake the game a THIRD time, and even then, it would have to be a complete ground-up process. Very unpleasant. And I'm of the mindset that 2.5 will be out before KH3, with enough time to play the whole thing.

Re: Do You Think Coded Will be a Cinematic Film Like Days?

Let's take into consideration what porting a DS game to PS3 would entail.

-The complete reconstruction of all visual assets
-A complete redux of all music (coded only has about six new tracks, but still)
-Reworking the game to function on a single screen and full controller

All told, they'd effectively be building a brand new game, not unlike the way they had to build KHFM for the collection.

So unless porting IIFM and BbSFM is a fairly expedient process (which it might be) we'll be seeing a Re:coded Theatre.

Reconstructing KHFM probably ate up a lot of the time for developing 1.5. It may even be the biggest reason they couldn't afford the time to completely port over Days (remember, it's something they had wanted to do initially). So since Re:coded's strongest trait is the gameplay... it wouldn't surprise me to see it completely ported. In fact, I really hope they do.

Re: Do You Think Coded Will be a Cinematic Film Like Days?

-The complete reconstruction of all visual assets
Not hard since most of these assets probably already exist in some capacity. They would probably have to change world layouts, but they already have half the work done in some instances.

-A complete redux of all music (coded only has about six new tracks, but still)
Also lucky because most of the songs in CoM have been remastered or rerecorded at some point in the last 5 years.

-Reworking the game to function on a single screen and full controller
Which I imagine would be very simple. I think they might have to mess around with the overclocks on Keyblades, but that is nothing serious.

So unless porting IIFM and BbSFM is a fairly expedient process (which it might be) we'll be seeing a Re:coded Theatre.
It should be. BBSFM was made by Osaka so they know the code better than anybody, and up-porting it probably won't be hard. I imagine they might smooth out the character models. Maybe if they try making Mirage Arena an online function, it might be a bit more work but the game itself could do it via adhoc so it would only be a matter of having some kind of server and menu so people can have private rooms with their friends as well as open ones.

So since Re:coded's strongest trait is the gameplay... it wouldn't surprise me to see it completely ported. In fact, I really hope they do.
If they do, I will cry. I love Re:coded so much. I wouldn't even mind if they just outsourced it if they had to. I'd love to play it in HD xD

Re: Do You Think Coded Will be a Cinematic Film Like Days?

Unfortunately I don't see it happening. They didn't make 358/2 Days into a remade game because that would've taken resources and effort away from making KH3 (which they referred to as 'the next game' prior to its announcement).

Since the Osaka team has however made BBSFM and DDD (and that recently, so they're probably very familiar with the games' code), I'd love for them to focus instead on those games, making them smooth in gameplay and pretty in HD.

Re: Do You Think Coded Will be a Cinematic Film Like Days?

I hope it's playable, but it'll probably just be cutscenes. Wait, I have a thought. Wouldn't it be easier for Square Enix to make the System Sectors look exactly like they do on the DS? Imagine all the stylistic suck they could do.

^ I'd actually like to see what the sectors look like on ps3.

I think... it would look supremely ugly running in 720p. I'd like System Sectors to be updated and look a bit more like Space Paranoids, honestly.

But the PS3's hardware could allow for a lot of cool effects. Things could pixelize when they disappear, for instance.

I have to agree with FudgeMintGuardian. Coded will more than likely be cutscenes. Both KH2FM+ and BBSFM will be easy to transfer and polish to HD, with out losing too much time on developing KH3.
Here is another thought, though.... What about KH: Birth By Sleep Vol.2!? At the end of the Secret Ep. It makes mention of BBS Vol.2.
What do you think!?
