After all of the new KINGDOM HEARTS HD 1.5 ReMIX info we got in January, the official HD Remaster website has updated with KINGDOM HEARTS 358/2 Days complete with character bios, screenshots, and a list of the additions that will be in the collection that releases March 14th 2013.

Among all of the new additions to the website, there is also an updated version of "Dearly Beloved" from the first KINGDOM HEARTS game which sounds gorgeous!

Thanks to Zephyr for the translations!

Update: Earlier this week Yoko Shimomura also talked about the remastered music for KINGDOM HEARTS HD 1.5 ReMIX on her Facebook page. The KINGDOM HEARTS composer discusses her team-up with Benyamin Nuss, a famous German pianist who has performed at Symphonic Fantasies - Music from Square Enix, and Hiroyuki Nakayama who has worked on many soundtracks from Square Enix like Piano Collections KINGDOM HEARTS and FINAL FANTASY Orchestral Album. 

[Part 1] There's going to be information coming soon for KINGDOM HEARTS HD 1.5 Re:MIX. It has remastered music! The upgraded versions are live recordings. I've participated with other pianists named Benyamin Nuss and Hiroyuki "Chopin" Nakayama. It was a wonderful performance. I'd like you guys to listen to the music I've composed with them.

[Part 2] Last year we had a resale for LIVE A LIVE's soundtrack. In a popular overseas game music site, OSV, I was given a gold medal for "Best Re-Issue of 2012!" I was so happy. Thank you everyone who loves LIVE A LIVE and purchased the soundtrack!
Original Sound Version

[Part 3] I was receiving an interview from Osaka College of Music and the interview was also published in the university newsletter "Muse Vol. 224". There's a .pdf file on the official website. Please visit if you have spare time. You could say I was a pretty poor scholar. (sweatdrop) You could even think I wasn't a human being, I'm actually quite surprised myself. (laughs)

Yeah, these are all old screens, same with the renders of the not-RAX Organization members (all recycled from the original Days release). I really like the colorful glowing thing that's going on with the Days screenshots section though. That's pretty~

The nostalgia wave that hit me when listening to dearly beloved was insane, even if it is only slightly different to the original kh1's version. Will be amazing to see if any other songs get redone or retouched when it is released ^^.

WHOA wait a minute! Is there a choir in the background?

Do you guys think this will be the Dearly Beloved of when we choose which of the 3 games to play? E.G GoW & MGS collection.

Or will this replace the first KH's Dearly Beloved?

I personally hope it will be the first one. Just so we can have more Dearly Beloved songs.

Of course if in the next weeks they put a remade Dearly Beloved of CoM then I guess they are going for the second option...

Then again I don't remember ever when a site of a KH game had more than one Dearly Beloved song, which was the Dearly Beloved for that exact game.

Yeah, I hope this one is for the collection as a whole and not only the first one.

Gonna need an audio rip of that new Dearly Beloved. I'm gonna spend the next eight hours spanking my monkey and listening to it.

I love this remaster of the KH1 Dearly Beloved music. Maybe, just maaaaybe this means they're remastering the rest of the audio as well.

I really like the dearly beloved I wonder if this will be the one that plays when your about to select a game.

I hope they release this as a poster. By the way is there a bigger version of this logoless version?

Not yet. I'm certainly expecting one though later on. We've gotten a massive HQ logo-less version of every game but the three that make up this title.

New Dearly Beloved sounds weirdly ominous.
It sounds a lot like some of the end screens.

I wonder if that's what they're using. I can't tell if its a fully orchestrated version or not because there's no strings and I'm listening on my iPad so speakers not the best.

This makes me think that everyones is a Pawn upon a chessboard set up by Xehanort.

When will we see a villain like him again I wonder?
