If it releases for the PS4 but is using those models...well, mm. Not quite type 0 is it? Not that I'd mind so much, it'd give me more to play on the ps4 when I get it.

^^^^^^^^Nomura confirmed back when BBS came out that it has nothing to do with Utada or Disney. They have yet to disclose what the legal matter is.
I may sound like a total cynic, but I just don't think that KH 3D HD makes a whole ton of sense right now, for three reasons:
1. The game is designed for the 3DS.
Dream Drop Distance, unlike Birth By Sleep or other titles was made for a current gen system, moreover it was designed specifically for the 3DS. I think that due to this, they couldn't port it to a formal platform unless they ported it over to the Wii U, which to me is the only system that could support dual screen platform play. This was the case with both of the other DS titles, which were passed over due to the fact that they would be very difficult to port to a non dual screen system. If they did this however, it would kind of subvert their plans to have all the games on one system, and would kind of defeat the point of it being remade in the first place, and boil it down to merely a graphical and hardware update.
No, it's not. That honor goes to Re:coded.2. Kingdom Hearts 3D is the shortest game in the series.
Don't devalue 3D's world selection because it's smaller. The worlds themselves are HUGE. On average, it takes about 37.4 hours to complete. That's longer than re:coded and Days and even a little longer than Chain of Memories.Yes, I said it, KH3D was just a short game. Almost every other Kingdom Hearts game features at least 13 unique worlds, whereas DDD only had 7 worlds. If you count the worlds twice because of the dual story lines, I suppose you'd end up with 14 worlds, but there were really only 7 -Levels- per se. Besides, judging by that rule, Birth By Sleep would have 36 levels, since each character featured a total of 12 playable levels. Due to this, I don't think they'd be able to realistically push their efforts from Kingdom Hearts 3 just to churn out another remaster, especially since it'd be stand alone. There are no other games left to package it with, so it'd be kind of underwhelming.
3. They could just cover it in cutscenes in KH3.
In the previous Kingdom Hearts titles like 3D, for those who had not played preceding games they featured articles, or in 3D's case the chronicles sections. Also there were optional cutscenes which explained the storyline of the game, as well as the backstory of others. Several people theorize that just because it was featured in the credits of 2.5 it must be its own standalone game. I think it more likely that since it was included next to footage of 3, it'll most likely be included in 3 as either a way to catch people up via cutscenes, or chronicles. After all, the game was just a big filler until the end anyway, as basically nothing of substance was revealed until the game's climax, other than perhaps the Nobody's return.
At any rate, I think it very unlikely that they would remake a game as a standalone title that is relatively new, unplayable on PS3, short, and overall very sum-uppable. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love 3D, it was my first KH game! I would buy the living crap out of it! I love 3D, I just don't think it's that plausible a title.
All this means is another year without Kingdom Hearts 3 to keep fans at bay and preoccupied by another stupid re-hash....AAAAAAAAAARGH!!
