It's funny 'cause I like paused HD 1.5 as I was getting to Neverland thinking "ho dee ho I'll just check in on KHI for no reason whatsoever" and then WHAT A TRAILER

And I'll say it again. Passion Orchestra. Square should pretty much just use it for all their trailers, for every game.

They went to all the effort of putting up subtitles, I wonder if it really would have been that hard to just include the translated audio. I'm sure some fan will have a version like that up in no time.

Still, it was lovely. Especially like the usage of Aqua's line there.

So do you guys think the music, at least for KH2FM and the few original pieces in Re:coded, will be remastered? I loved that little treat in the 1.5 ReMix, but I've heard that they only redid it because they lost the assets for KHFM's music, and of course Days had a pretty low quality OST to begin with being on DS and all that. Though it is odd that they remastered Lord of the Castle, but nothing else for Re:CoM...

Digressing, music remastering for II.5! Yes or no? Possible?

They sort of set a standard with 1.5, so I'd say yes.
KHII could probably/definitely use a soundtrack remaster, and with Coded the same logic would apply as with Days. And why not BBS? It had some darn gorgeous music.

Maybe they can give her more time, though. Didn't she only have like one day or something to get it all done for 1.5? Sounded awful. :x

I'm still wondering what cutscenes the Re:coded movie will shell out, because you could propbably squeeze it all in half an hour, hopefully SE makes a it more of a real movie this time around.
Birth by Sleep looks gorgeous with the updated textures and Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix is a no-brainer.

I don't have giving up hope on a Dream Drop Distance port yet, after the release of 2.5 ReMiX there is still time before KHIII gets finally hits the shelves so it could get its own remake.

Now that sounds some more realistically, as hiring an actual orchestra can become very expensive depending on how long you book them.

Maybe they'll go and show some more parts of the Disney worlds this time, as well as putting an emphasis on Data-Sora's developing heart throughout the journey which eventually got him a real Keyblade in Hollow Bastion, as this is one of the important plot ploints in Coded that gets often overlooked by players and practically foreshadows the whole big reveal of DDD.

If Nomura really wants to get new players into the franchise and bring more of those who either couldn't play the handhelds (those have my sympathies) or didn't bother because "lolz it's not a numbered game and not on a home console, so it's not important"-reasoning (those I don't give a damn about), he will have to include DDD in some shape or form along the line, as the whole experience would be incomplete without at least the important parts from DDD.

So, who thinks they're going to make Mirage Arena an online thing?

Personally, I find it more likely that they'll scrap the online idea and just make it a single player world. However, the idea of implementing online multiplayer is a big marketing ploy nowadays, so it may actually serve in their favor to make it online.

At the same time, online multiplayer has become something of a gimmick these days ever since developers thought it was mandatory to have an online mode after it became so popular, and thus people aren't instantly sold on a game if it includes online. So, it could go either way.

I, for sure, would be spazzing out from pure joy if they decide to make Mirage Arena online. There weren't many people playing BbS around when it was first released in where I live, so I never really played co-op with or versus against other players. To be able to experience it in PS3 is an experience I will welcome with arms spread wide.

If, though, it no longer supports multiplayer, then too bad... but I can still cope with it. Going solo through the matches was a very challenging, yet very satisfying, experience that I wouldn't mind reliving. It's just like Olympus Coliseum's Sora-only mode after all, and it's certainly doable and far from boring (unless you keep losing. Sweet Swirlix, that goodness-forsaken Iron Imprisoner IV took me more than 10 tries to beat in Critical).

That said, I'm leaning toward the "yes, online, please" side. I hope they really make it happen, because not doing so is... somewhat a waste of the potential that the Mirage Arena possesses. That's my opinion on this.

Oh God. Mirage Arena on Critical will destroy me. I remember trying to get the Ultima Weapon and I gave up trying because I couldn't take it, knowing I would have to do it two more times with the other characters, so I gave up. And that was on Proud Mode.

Not this time though. I'm in for a painful time. And here I thought that getting Platinum on KHFM and Re:CoM was going to be a pain. Getting them on 2.5 will kill me, lol.

Nooooo. This is a great opportunity for the larger KH audience to finally interact with eachother in a title. Depending on it's successful implementation, they could grow upon that for KHIII. Also, I really like the idea of playing some aspect of BBS with friends. I never did go through the trouble of doing the Mirage Arena adhoc. Being on the PS3 could make the process more fluid.

I had a ton of fun playing Mirage Arena online with other friends (both the arena modes and the verses modes) so I really hope they make a return in this. In fact, I actually remember one of the only problems I had with BBS' multiplayer was that it was local-only, so you couldn't just play with whoever you wanted to. This could fix that issue if they choose to keep the multiplayer.

I have no idea if they will or not considering this is just an HD collection. Probably not, but it would be awesome if they did.

Maybe it's just me or maybe I just haven't seen KH2 or Re:Coded in awhile, but those promotional images look nice, but I don't see too much of a difference compared to their original versions (I can see some though). BbS though YES!!!! Those graphics (even if they aren't as good as they will end up) are amazing, though that one obvious kink in Aqua's arm-dress-thing is getting to me.

IDK cause more time to play as Aqua!!!!!!

On a side note, I'm very curious what will happen with Mirage Arena, I guarantee you if it isn't online, it will hurt the game since I bet most people are expecting it given on the PSP it had it. Not just Mirage Arena but the Command Board just isn't all that fun playing alone (sure it's fun to start to unlock everything but after you get everything, without people to play it with, there is no draw to replay it with AIs...at least not for me). I did get the chance to play it online with KHi members through the PSP + PS3 system which was fun so I definitely hope it returns and while I know it won't happen, I'd enjoy certain commands not be so broken <_<

They have everything to gain if they add an online mode for Mirage Arena. SE is aware of the huge pull multiplayer games have...If they want to grab more people, I think this would be the perfect addition. Also since you can adhoc and get it online for the PSP version, they might as well just make a proper system for it.

(ALSO IT BETTER HAVE PSP TO PS3 SAVE BONUS LIKE BBS TO BBSFM DID. If you had a BBS clear save file, BBSFM gave you awards for the trophies you had obtained. Also in example, MGS:PW let people use their PSP save for the PS3 version. All I want is the same feature as the PSP games did.)

Woot! So, so excited for this! KHIIFM (that might as well have been its own game), BbSFM for PS3, and Re:Coded cutscenes! It's a dream come true! And sort of flattering that we fans were able to guess all of this. LOL.

I wonder what's happening with 3D though... I guess we'll know soon enough.

Also... Might I just say it was bloody brilliant to open with the "looks like my summer vacation is over" line? And then we all shed another collective tear there, but of joy this time. LOL.

Also, I really appreciate how they used Aqua's line for this trailer. I always liked that segment of her tale in BbS, and it summarized the overall story of the game pretty well.

Plus, sadly, those children did live out their lives, and in this very collection, no less! Me wonders if that's part of the reason they put BbS in II.5 instead of I.5.

And.. was that one line about Nobodies new for the trailer? I don't remember that at all. Was that Roxas talking?

The main reason BBS is in this collection is because a lot of what happens in the game connects more to KH2 and Coded so it made sense to put it in with those two.

@Sign Thank you for the clarification, Sign! Now that you mention it, I remember Sora saying that now. I really need to replay KHII again... LOL.

And OMG. Did Sora's line actually work pretty well in summarizing a trailer for once?! XD (You know, since Nomura said it's sometimes hard to make KH trailers because of some of Sora's lackluster lines?)

@MATGSY Holy crap. They did change Terra's bicep, huh? It looks a lot better now, honestly. In fact, I didn't even realize how anatomically weird it originally looked until now. I don't think I'm going to be able to look at Terra's original model the same again... I'm so glad they fixed that.

To be completely honest, I don't even see why KH3 is going to be available for XB One. Don't get me wrong, I'd be more than happy to have more KH fans, but it makes no sense. I believe Nomura wanted to put all of the games already out onto one system, so the PS3 was naturally chosen. Since 1.5 and 2.5 are both Playstation exclusives, it would only make sense to have KH3 be Playstation exclusive as well, but instead they chose to make it available for XB One? If they wanted KH3 to be multi-platform, they should have done the same with 1.5 and 2.5 in my opinion. Making the third (technically the seventh, or eighth if you count chi) installment of the game available on a console that's never been seen on their previous generation consoles just makes no sense to me lol.

Making the third (technically the seventh, or eighth if you count chi) installment of the game available on a console that's never been seen on their previous generation consoles just makes no sense to me lol.

Microsoft offered a large sum of money for KH3 and FFXV, Square Enix's new president accepted.

Or at least that's the most likely case scenario in my opinion.

...Is it too late to hope for a PS4 release?


Sure, their wouldn't be a gap in graphics, but the possibility of having the game run at 60fps over the PS3's inevitable 30 is too good to pass down.


If we're lucky, SE and Disney will put 1.5 and 2.5 on PSN and make it so it can be played via Gaikai. It isn't the same thing, but a PS4 version probably isn't in the cards when they are busy trying to get KH3 out.

What's the least likely scenario out of curiosity? lol I put my money on Nomura walking down the street all casual and then out of nowhere a block of ice causes him to slip right into the arms of an Xbox employee and Nomura says "Xbox employee-san, what beautiful eyes you hav-okay, I'm ending it there lol I couldn't go on <_<

On a more important note, that dubbed video worked really well!!! I never do understand how people do it so fast O_o but I'm sure glad they did.

Extract a few lines of dialogue. Slap the lines of dialogue over Passion (Orchestral). Export. Boom.

Can't agree more. Not to say that the Japanese version is lacklustre, but watching it in English certainly feels satisfying.

... I hope that play button can handle all the stress of being clicked on over and over again...

Yes, the important thing is that Aqua will be in HD. Don't worry, gurl, soon Sora will get you out of the Realm of Darkness soon......Meanwhile, the audience and viewers will get to see your suffering/loss and galloping around....in HD!

I think fans start to get what they deserve after all that wait they've been through. One could simply say that they are re-releasing all this just to get some profit right before KH3 (Doesn't matter, had KH), but the the price is quit low for a game to contain 3 games, all in HD.
And the whole idea of it getting released right before KH3 its just so perfect. Because, after years of jumping from one game to another was quite a 'complicated'' story. And now we get everything packed together right before the storm.
I already own KH 1.5 even though i havent played it yet. And as soon as KH 2.5 gets released i will put both of the games,side by side on my shelf and wait for the perfect opportunity (Quite busy, studying), to get lost right into them.

No PS4 port which is a shame since I will skipping a PS3. Hopefully later

Also why was that commercial in Japanese since an English one could easily have been made. Oh well. Lol at the beginning disclaimer like you already had all that stuff in English don't lie to me Square. Plus the subtitles don't match the real localized English lines.

Nothing satisfies you, does it?

I don't know what dialogue you're listening to, but they do match.

It's completely true though...

On topic though, I also found no difference in the dialogue.

I really like the trailer. BBSFM looks really good I can't wait to play it on the PS3 especially the secret episode that we never got. I'm really curious to find out if it'll feel any different playing BBS on a home console instead of a hand held.

Hmm, sorry... there currently are no known plans to release 2.5 for PS4. It's been confirmed that it will release on PS3 in 2014.

At the very least, no one will complain about how BBS cutscenes were cropped. :)

Hate to burst your bubble but that's assuming they have an HD render, unlike the first game's videos.

Here's a dubbed version of the trailer, and it's JUST AS GOOD OH MY GOD
[video=youtube;XXLRtSlxEQE][/video]

I don't get how anyone can dislike Willa's performance. Seriously.
I found that Willa's performances fluctuate between mediocre and outstanding thankfully she hits all of the important scenes out of the park.

The orchestrated version of passion along with her voice over just gives me chills.

I am so looking forward to fighting Roxas and the other organization members in HD plus KH 2 final mix hada lot more extra features than the first. But I have a question will it be similar to Kingdom Hearts where the cut scenes will be muted and just contain subtitles? Because I know that KH2 final mix had a lot more extra scenes than KH. I hope they can dub it but I doubt it :/

The new scenes in KH2FM had both a dubbed and non-dubbed version. I have no doubt they'll be able to do the same for the western release.

In Kingdom Hearts Final Mix in Japan for 1.5, the additional scenes were left unvoiced in Japanese. This is why they were left unvoiced in English for the NA/EU/PAL release.

In Kingdom Hearts 2 Final Mix in Japan, the scenes weren't voiced in English but in Theater Mode where you could view the scenes in both English and Japanese, they were voiced in Japanese. Because there is voice in the Japanese version, you should expect voice in the English version for 2.5. They try to keep things as consistent as possible between the versions.

Sweet! I guess I never checked out the theater mode, I mean I played the game where it's in English but the subtitles were in Japanese while the extra scenes were unvoiced with Japanese subtitles. But since you cleared that out I'm looking forward to hearing the english dub.
