Square Enix Sure Isn't Goofing Around with Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX

Looks Sora great

Hot on the heels of the decent Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX, ordinarily sluggish publisher Square Enix is busying itself with successor Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX. The high-definition overhaul – which is being produced alongside PlayStation 4 sequel Kingdom Hearts III – bundles the second game in the series with PSP spin-off Birth by Sleep and the cut-scenes from Nintendo DS title Re:Coded.

And it looks the part, too, judging by this set of fresh PlayStation 3 screenshots. Deployed in Japan earlier in the week, the images show scenes from all three of the abovementioned games, with the portable instalment looking particularly impressive on Sony’s former flagship format.

I still don't understand why RE:Coded (and also 358/2 Days) won't be the actuall games, maybe Nintendo holds some kind of rights but then again if they did then the cut-scenes woulnd't be in it either

I still feel both KH main games could have been released together, as they are doing with Final Fantasy X and X-2. So I will be borrowing this from a friend, as I may do with the first one.

@FullbringIchigo: It's probably because it would take a LOT more work to remake DS games in HD than PS2/PSP games, and they aren't even the best games in the series to begin with (well, 358/2 Days, anyway...haven't played Coded yet). It was a judgement call that getting the plot points to us was more important, and although it's a weird choice, I don't have a huge problem with it.

@sinalefa It made more sense for them to split KH1 and 2 into the 2 collections, if they're going to have 2 collections at all. If they didn't split it, then a lot people would only get the collection with KH1 and 2, writing off Birth by Sleep as a spin-off and unimportant. But it's very important to the plot for KH3.

Call it a ploy to get money if you wish, but it also makes sense to better make sure people are caught up on the story

@fullbringichigo the only reason that i can think of as to why its just the cut scenes and not the full game would be that 358/2 days and RE:coded were for the ds and use a touch screen which even if it is only a trivial component of the games it still wouldn't translate over to the ps3 and it would make those games seem incomplete
