As of now though, the track is JPN exclusive? Also, is it only packaged with the game, as in it won't be sold separately? If the answers aren't known that's fine, I just hope it is at least released separately so I can import it :D

Strange tactic, why not include the remixed Kingdom Hearts Soundtrack to give it an official release too?

Whoa, so am I misreading or does that imply she remixed the tracks from all three games?

Glad it's being released, but I still don't remember 1.5's soundtrack getting released. I tried searching for it just now, but pulled up nothing.

So the package deal with the game will be similar to FFX's blu-ray I'm thinking. With content being shown while playing?

I'm not sure why she'd rearrange BBS' tracks, since they were already recorded with real instruments.

Not all of them are recorded with live instruments. Most were a mix of live instruments and her super nifty synths.

A bunch of songs could do with a facelift, honesty. "Key of Light", "Future Masters", "Shaded Truths", and ugh "Xehanort" could absolutely be redone. And the stuff in Dwarf Woodlands...Really, as I'm listening to the OST they could redo pretty much every world-related song.

I hope Shimomura decides to redo Enchanted Dominion's battle music, because TETRIS! Dang, that was the first thing that came to my mind when I heard that particular part in the piece, and it has since become one of my favourite theme of the series.

And The Tumbling, too. It has a magical power that turns the battlefield into a dance floor.

Blu-Ray disc... Meaning you couldn't import it to a media player as MP3 files? =/

Also, why do we always miss out on OSTs everywhere else? I was very lucky to get Kingdom Hearts I and II's OSTs without having to order online. I've been pondering ordering BBS's OST for some time.

I believe gave an option to export the tracks from the Blu-ray disc in mp3 form (or gave a redemption code) for FF X HD. I'm not sure cause- yeah, that was Japan only as well. Maybe they will do the same here.

Also... Blu-ray disc >>>> CD >>>>> MP3s

But if you really want the tracks, there are ways to export them from the disc and they will surely end up online.

You don't like high quality audio streaming through your PS3/PS4/XB1?

Somebody will rip the albums before you can even blink, so don't worry

I'm just worried bc this whole concept of a Blu-ray album is totally new to me, and I'm afraid people haven't figured out how to rip music from that.

but your statement is pretty reassuring, so I can rest easy.
