Wasn't there an E3 trailer for it? If so it's extremely likely it'll get localized.

No there was not. Despite the fact, there is no way 1.5 won't be coming out internationally.

At the very least, they'll give us the NA we got back in 2002. However, that would be petty and more work for them to actively remove any FM content so that's not likely.

KH on PS3 is something that people everywhere have been pining for; denying it to the American market would be denying lots of $$$ that S-E needs.

Exactly.

But I swear to god if they pull a Re Chain of Memories and don't release it in Europe and Australia, I will be so mad.

Hopefully they don't. I don't think Square want to annoy the spanish and italian buyers especially considering what happened with DDD over there. There really is no excuse if they want to expand the series to other players.

Re: Why I'm Excited for Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix

I had more problems with being unable to interact with things like treasure chests while I was in a battle which I hope they've changed as well. Trying to grab a ride on a dolphin to get to the Sunken Ship is absolutely frustrating when enemies keep popping up in Atlantica.

Yeah, I feel the same way. The gameplay in KH was clunky compared to the rest of the games in the series, which is one of the reasons why I'm excited for this collection.

Other particular gameplay elements that left me frustrated was the 100 Acre Wood world. I hated the minigames there solely because they required having to go to the last command slot. Or in Deep Jungle on the swinging vines, and swimming in Atlantica. The updated gameplay is probably the best thing in this collection, IMO.

To be honest the DDD-issue with Spain and Italy went way out of hand especially in the behaviour of some of the fans. No one shall deny that it was a dickish move on Square's part, especially since there were trailers in spanish and italian at first, but the backlash that came from it was way overblown.
Also since there were people attacked who didn't have any say in the matter, like one of the Admins of the SE-blog Europe or even the Square NA forums.

As for the HD Collection, since it is also aimed at a new audience I would be surprised if they decide to skip over Australia and Europe again.

I do not understand your reasoning. Australia and Europe missed out on a game, something that fans within each continent still are sour about. Australia and Europe are heavily populated areas, and although they are not where Square Enix sees the highest Kingdom Hearts sales, they still bring in a profit. It'd be a low blow if they DIDN'T release it in EU/PAL if they release it in North America.

Of course people can import it, but that would only mean publishers would lose out on money because they didn't take the initiative.

TBH I'm still sour about it too. It would have been a great time passer back in the day.

That's why I said I would be surprised if they decide to skip EU and AUS again. Unlike Re: CoM, the HD Collection is aimed also (but not solely) on gaining a new audience so a possible new market for Square, which I strongly doubt they would not try out.

Not to mention the severe PR-blow that would cause.

Re: Why I'm Excited for Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix

I am still pissed off that Days isn't being included as playable in the game, yes it will be nice having a 2 hour movie i guess, but still it was my favorite game in the series.

I loved the game for its multiplayer capabilities, i found days multiplayer far better and a lot more fun compared to BbS. Had the game been made playable they could have included a lot of new features, and being able to play the game online with friends would have been very exciting. and while most people found the mission system to be 'annoying' i liked it, i finally had a KH game where i could do a stage and re-do events and boss battles, instead of wandering aimlessly in a world I've already beaten with nothing exciting to do.

And with the games stage set up being mission based, they could have easily released DLC based Missions. Missions outside the main story, maybe even have made it so when playing Mission Mode solo, you could set some AI controlled Allies. My only gripe with KH Days was the limited stages the CoM cast joined you in, and the lack of a stage to fight along side Saix and Xemnas.

I will always consider them not including Days as a playable game will always be their worst decision regarding 1.5 HD Remix. I would have happily waited till Christmas of 2013 if I had too, to have them include KH Days. But i guess some people are greedy and are willing to let KH Days fans suffer while everyone else gets what they want as soon as possible.

The missions themselves are pretty bland though. "Collect these tokens", "defeat this palette swap heartless", "complete this objective within a certain time mission", etc. It's SOMETHING to do but it's also not fun so it's completely meaningless.

Days was a really lazy game to me (around the time I was visiting agrabah for the 500th time was when I finally had enough and never picked it up again), so I'm not fussed about it being excluded.

Re: Why I'm Excited for Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix

before I had my first PSP I had a DS and I was hoping to play days, although watching a walkthrough and taking to heart the things some of the people say about it I'm glad that I had my DS stolen, then I had grounds to get a PSP and wait for BBS...but then I heard Vector to the heavens and it roused sadness in my heart to think that I wouldn't get a chance to experience days for myself... BBS helped subside that when I got it.

inshort I welcome the additions 1.5 will bring, unknown (mansex) fight, trophies, HD clarity of imagery. Gameplay corrections, I'll be glad this is coming out... I just hope to see the Ven/Xion scene hopefully, maybe even see giant HD final Xion.

Re: Why I'm Excited for Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix

To be completely honest, I'm glad that Days isn't being included as a full game. In my opinion, Days was the most character developing and emotionally driven Kingdom Hearts game. It was however, the worst in terms of gameplay. This makes it a perfect fit for a 2 hour movie. Cut out all the boring bollucks and just update the scenes to HD, whilst adding another hour or however long they've extended it to. I personally think that Square has made an intelligent decision in regards to excluding the full game of Days.

It wasn't our choice, it was Square's seeing as they themselves said it would take too long to rebuild the combat system from the ground up.

Re: Why I'm Excited for Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix

I just cant wait to finally be able to put an actual Kingdom Hearts blu-ray disc into my PS3 and play it. I have been dreaming of that day since I got my first PS3 about four years ago.

That is untrue. The statement in question came from Tokyo Game Show 2012 in which the announcement for the collection was only being made to Japan at that time. This is very normal for Kingdom Hearts games, as most past games have been announced to be localized for other regions only after the game had come out in Japan.

Kingdom Hearts 3D was the exception, as its unveiling was at E3 which is a western event.

The secret message in 3D hinted towards 1.5, and seeing as it wasn't removed for Western games, it would be a real douche move on Square's part to not release it outside Japan. Not to mention, Nomura first revealed that there would be a secret in the credits of 3D (the secret message) in a Nintendo Power interview, also a Western source.

this is just depressing. You had your ds stolen and then judged a game before playing it? Graphics and story alone make it my favorite ds game though i havent played too many...

This to to the max. Two ressons i chose PS3: blu ray and Kingdom hearts.
