Tetsuya Nomura Teases HD Version of Kingdom Hearts II
Posted by Sammy Barker
Series director Tetsuya Nomura reckons it would be unusual for there not to be an HD re-release of Kingdom Hearts II. Following the announcement of Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX, the luminary admitted that a second compilation will probably happen at some point in the future.
With the original Kingdom Hearts, Chain of Memories, and 358/2 Days being bundled with Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX, it makes sense that the hypothetical sequel would include Kingdom Hearts II, Birth by Sleep, and the recent Nintendo 3DS game Dream Drop Distance. Of course, nothing concrete has been confirmed at this point.
When not teasing, Nomura also shared a few new details about Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX. He explained that rather than upscaling old character models, the game will feature those used in Dream Drop Distance. He added that the gameplay has been tweaked to be more like Kingdom Hearts II’s – which means that the original’s temperamental camera should no longer be an issue.
