would you be able to link me the riku awakening and the segment in the dark realm?Because they left ALL scenes in KH 1 FM unvoiced. There were several new scenes like Riku awakening in Hollow Bastion or the segment in the Dark Realm after Ansem expelled his heart.
These scenes were all unvoiced in the original KH 1 FM as well so they left it at that.
Well, not entirely. DiZ's scenes were re-done. In Days he was voiced by Christopher Lee, in 1.5 he's voiced by Corey Burton.Even within the Days-movie when old cutscenes were used (not that the DS-Days had so many anyways), they used the old voices.
The only thing they'd need are new lines recorded, and they already called in all the voice actors for Days HD anyways so it could have been done. It's really just something they chose to retain; sometimes it worked for the better, and sometimes it didn't.They probably didn't record them because they just didn't have that much resources when making the HD version.
That's right. Because of all the time, effort and resources that would have gone into the task, they came to the conclusion that if they were to spend all of that on remaking Days, they might as well do so for a new game completely (KH3). And a new game would be much more preferable to the players.I think they wanted to make Days playable too but ended up just remaking the cutscenes.
They didn't have to rebuilt the entirety of it, though you will see people saying it a lot to exaggerate what really happened. They didn't have most of if not all the original files from their database because there wasn't a need to keep them for so long, so they procured a retail copy of the game and scavenged what they could from that.I remember reading that they also had to rebuild the entirety of Kingdom Hearts Final Mix because they lost all the original game data or something.
They had the resources, they just didn't have the voices recorded in Japanese so why have it recorded in English.They probably didn't record them because they just didn't have that much resources when making the HD version.
They did but they didn't have the time to do it, so they opted to an HD Theater.I think they wanted to make Days playable too but ended up just remaking the cutscenes.
Yes, they did. Square Enix has lost a lot of the data for a lot of their earlier games.I remember reading that they also had to rebuild the entirety of Kingdom Hearts Final Mix because they lost all the original game data or something.
You have a point there. At this point we know who it is and it would have been nice to hear him speak to Sora, but...Agreed. Though at the same time it's kinda pointless to leave it mysterious since, by this point, we already know who he is.
I agree with this. I think him being unvoiced in that scene was the better choice and made Xemnas seem really mysterious and even creepy.I think leaving his voice unrecorded really added to the overall mysterious vibe and just made it better imo.
Not necessarily. Xemnas only says a few words in that scene and Sora doesn't hear him again for over a year so he might not have remembered him just based on his voice. Then again Xemnas has a pretty distinct voice so hearing it again could have sparked a memory.If Sora had heard him speak, wouldn't he have recognized Xemnas in KH2?
