-Comments from Hikaru Utada regarding this trailer-

"For this significant challenge of re-recording a song that has been supported for many years, I enlisted the help of my friend and collaborator, A. G. Cook.

The new version of 'Hikari'/'Simple and Clean' is a song I wrote 22 years ago, but it is being expressed from a different place and a different perspective.

It is meditative, thoughtful, and gentler. Life is not about winning or losing; it's about what you gain from your experiences.

Reflecting on what many people around the world have received through Kingdom Hearts, I look forward to what begins anew from here."

Right? It's pretty frustrating that the existing console ports are the inferior versions.

I want to whine about no current gen ports with all of the bells and whistles, but I also think they will wait to port them to current gen when KH4 is closer to releasing in order to maximize reach.
Just made me realise that we still don't have the PlayStation Keyblade available for purchase / download like America does. Forgetting Missing-Link and KH4, this is the true injustice.

Melody of Memory being missing is probably just due to EGS exclusivity timing. But maybe there could be a 3.5 in the works with MoM and a new playable Kairi episode a la 0.2.

Oh

Another Star Cluster recolor...

DEAD OF NIGHT DOESN'T EVEN MAKE SENSE AS A STEAM NAME
I think from now console exclusive Keyblades should be inspired by an IP owned by each company. For example:

God of War Keyblade for PlayStation

The Legend of Zelda Keyblade for Nintendo

Halo Keyblade for Xbox

Well, you see---

Oh I see! That's a very good reason!

I assume that is also going to be the answer to why the price will most likely be close to a new release. (Can't see anything on the price)

Just a few months ago I finally broke down and bought the series on EGS and they all crash for me after about 30 minutes of gameplay. So this is bittersweet. Will I buy it? Yes. But darn.

Oh thanks! Now I just have to hope the Swiss prices don't have a unreasonable markup.

hats off to the very principled fans of a disney game developed by the famously socially conscious and environmentally conscious square enix

dogged steam fanaticism should be studied i think!
Honestly I think many were just like me and didnt want another game store app on their computer just for one series of games.

Plus I figured I already owned all the games so there was no rush. Even now I dont know, if I'll get it right away or wait for a sale.

Yeah, same, I'll wait for a sale regardless. It's all games I've already played. It would be great to have them, and I'm excited they're on Steam, but happy to wait a few years.

About time they got put on Steam, only took ‘em 5 years. Yes, I know it was put on Epic Games Store 3 years ago, but it’s still been 5 years since KH3.

Also, I was not expecting a re-recording of Simple and Clean to be announced, though considering a re-recording of Hikari was on Utada’s Science Fiction album it was probably a matter of time. Still, awesome news to hear🤩

The slow ports years apart is abysmal and I'm so glad Square Enix is abandoning that in favour of day one sales. You want people swept up in the hype and excitement to bite the bullet on the game, not years later with barely a whimper where the highs and lows of the games have been exhausted to death.

Curious to see what KH4's numbers will be if they manage to get it out on as many consoles as possible.

I mean they could've put them on Steam WAY longer ago than that.
