Kingdom Hearts -HD 2.5 ReMIX- was available for fans to play at this years Gamescom event in Cologne Germany. While the demo was the same as the one that was playable at both Jump Festa 2014 and E3 2014, Square Enix Presents has upload a new video highlighting fans reactions to the game and showcasing them having fun while playing, as well as talking to Co-director Tai Yasue and various fans around the event.
"I like it very much! Kingdom Hearts - in HD - as a remix. I'll buy it", one excited fan said while cosplaying as Sora.
Another fan had nothing but praise for the remix; "The art design looks better, the gameplay has improved - and also the camera work. What I've seen so far - it's a really good game."
We get a lot of passion for Kingdom Hearts and I think that’s really one of the drivers for the Kingdom Hearts development team. I think that’s the reason why we do this. A lot of our game shows, we have user feedback and we see a lot of movies where the players are really excited and I think we sort of watch that in the development team and I think really that drives us to make our games quickly *laughs*. We get a lot of passion from that.
The things you can do on the next generation consoles is going out of the stratosphere, it’s very exciting. A lot of restrictions we had before are gone so that’s a new thing. Not just the technology but the creative aspects as well. There are things we can do in Kingdom Hearts that you can’t do in any other game. There’s a lot of fantasy involved, for example, in Kingdom Hearts so one of our events we had, for example, a jet coaster coming— a magical jet coaster coming out of thin air. That’s very Disney theme park like. I guess that is something that is very original to Kingdom Hearts so we’re very excited.
The reason we do this is because of our fans. They’re very passionate. Coming here to the Gamescom today, I realised that again and I realised it’s not just a Japanese thing, it’s not just a North American thing, it’s a world-wide thing and I’m very excited watching our players play the video game made me realise how happy I am actually being able to take part in the development of Kingdom Hearts.
