    I have never played a Kingdom Hearts game in my life. Yet when they announced the new one for next-gen.. I was interested. Too bad I’m completely new and lost to the series 🙁

    • Anime10121 says:

      Then why not just purchase the two remasters, they have all the pertinent games/info you’ll need and by the time 2.5 is out, you’ll likely be able to get both for $60 total :/

      • Cameron Standring says:

        Bingo – in fact, this is like half of the point of these remasters. KH games have been released for the PS2, PSP, DS, mobile, etc., and these releases are partly about letting you just play the whole thing on PS3 before KH3 arrives.

        • foureyes oni says:

          i honestly see them rerereleasing these games on ps4 and xb1 before kh3 hits shelves.

          • Redinferno124 says:

            Would be cool, but it most likely wont happen.

          • Shau Jin Neow says:

            I actually view it to be highly likely to happen, they need to keep the interest of the series a float with these releases to drum up interest for KH3, since I don’t expect KH3 to come before FF15, and there is no sight of FF15 for 2015, then earliest FF15 going to happen is 2016, and KH3 at least 1 year after that.

            Between these 3 years gap of 2014 and 2017, interest may have die down a bit, so they at least will have another KH release between these years, either a KH1.5+2.5 in a single disc for PS4 and Xbox One, or KH3D for PS4 and Xbox One with cutscene compilation from other games, and get people prepared for KH3.

          • Cameron Standring says:

            That’s possible, but I’m pretty sure it hasn’t really happened before – ports of PS2-era games on PS4/Xbone. Only example I can think of is Halo – we haven’t seen GoW1/2, MGS2/3/Peace Walker, or Ico/SotC announced for the new consoles at all.

      • Stranger On The Road says:

        thanks, I’m waiting to start the series, always dismissed it because of the Disney characters, but there is enough talk about it that I feel I should give a try 🙂

        • Anime10121 says:

          Kingdom Hearts has become FAR more Square than Disney lately. Plus its really fun, so I hope you give it a chance 🙂

          • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3 says:

            Based on the latest entries or the way they’re catering 1.5 and 2.5 HD ReMIX at the moment, because the only recent title I played was KH 3D? And yes it’s fun, so I’ll be waiting for 2.5 HD ReMIX to arrive.

      • BeeXxX says:

        Don’t have a PS3. Just a PS4, 3DS, and Xbox360

        • Anime10121 says:

          Oh, well aint you the segmented gamer XD

          Well fortunately for you, I remember them saying something about releasing the collection for the Xbone if there’s enough demand, and if they DO intend to release them on Xbox One, they’ll likely be on PS4 as well, so you may still get a shot 🙂

    • Black Heaven says:

      That is…. quite a problem.

      I have nothing personal against KH3 on XB1, but I do find it weird they released it there.

      Being
      new to the series, you might have difficulties making sense about this
      game, bro. Prior to KH3, you have *Seven* games to catch and make sense
      of the story.

      For your reference, in case they do release KH series on next-gen…

      1. Kingdom Hearts 1
      2. Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories
      3. Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days
      4. Kingdom Hearts 2
      5. Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep
      6. Kingdom Hearts Re:Coded
      7. Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance

      1~3 is covered in 1.5.HD, 4~6 in 2.5 HD, both available only on PS3 at the moment. 7 is currently a 3DS exclusive (lucky you?)

      But if you wanna speed it up, they say the only important ones are 1, 4, 5 & 7.

      If you want to follow the story, you may want to gain access to those games. If not, then the combat and visuals are there to mesmerize you. (Your summons are Disney *freakin* attractions!! :D)

      Finally, I think there are a few KH games on mobile / browser. Kingdom Hearts X[chi] is Japan browsers only though I think they said it has story elements there too. You could try get it if you can.

      • Kingdom17 says:

        Even, after playing all 7 games ~ Also there is word that they are considering KH DDD re for console release (reload)

    I hope they release that Collector’s Pack HD 1.5 + 2.5 ReMIX in the west. I’d buy it ASAP 🙂

      my thoughts exactly

  4. Guest says:

    Capcom did many stupid stunts i.e. making gaist flopper new IP instead of megaman brawler, they could’ve just using megaman IP as the base and gets huge sales.
    just saying.

  5. Хаотикс says:

    more interested in just 2.5 rather than complete edition, since i already have 1.5. And 1.5 has good collector edition for me at least.

  6. Sticky Notes says:

    Need

  7. Eric Irving says:

    DAT box art. If KH2.5 is as well enhanced as KH1.5 was, I am in for a real treat this December. Its going to be nice being able to play Final Mix+ in English this time.

    • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3 says:

      don’t know if I like the box art KH 2’s original release or the box art for 2.5 HD ReMIX more.

  8. PrinceHeir says:

    I want that bundle!!

  9. Kingdom17 says:

    Awha, I hope we get the same box art, that looks awesome!

  10. Lineria says:

    Am i the only one hoping here for English subs? Although it seems unlikely….
