Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix Has Over 2 Hours Of 358/2 Days Movies In Chapters

Days01_FIX Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix has some tweaks to the gameplay in Kingdom Hearts Final Mix. Retailer Tsutaya says Square Enix added Zero EXP and Combo Master from Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix into the game. Zero EXP is designed to give players more of a challenge since you can stay through the game at level one.

 

Square Enix also improved the controls, added trophies, and changed the English voice acting with subtitles to Japanese voice acting. Being a HD remaster, character models have been updated with high resolution graphics too. Kingdom Hearts Re: Chain of Memories also has trophies to collect and HD graphics.

 

Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days has HD quality graphics, but it is not a playable game. You can watch Roxas’ story unfold by selecting chapters of each day. Altogether, the videos are over two hours long. Players can also read Roxas’ Diary, a Secret Report, and a new character guide to get a better understanding of the story.

 

Watching Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days or completing Kingdom Hearts Final Mix or Kingdom Hearts Re: Chain of Memories unlocks a bonus for fans.

 

Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix is slated for release on March 14, 2013 in Japan.

    If this were to come to germany, think we would get the german dub again?

    • XiaomuArisu

      I hope so the german dub was very good.

  • leeorv

    I’m definitely getting this day 1 once it comes out in the west, I LOVE kingdom hearts, and even though it doesn’t have KH2, I think it has enough content to justify its existence

    No need to wait, import. I did.

    I hope they made the finale into FMV since the last hour of the game was the best part.

  • Prinnydoom

    Well i missed out on both re:chain of memories and final mix because of my country ha ha ha not anymore ^_____^

  • Spider-Man

    Can’t wait to watch ‘em on Youtube.

  • Nemesis_Dawn

    I really hope this gets localized. I assume there’s a better chance than not of it, but with this generation suddenly being the one where games are staying in Japan again, after going a generation and a half without that sort of thing, I do worry.

    It would be pretty cool if the Western release had Japanese voice acting with English subtitles. I don’t hate the English dub at all, personally, it would just be neat to experience the Japanese version.

    [pleading comments for a localization here.] If it doesn’t happen, I can at least follow cutscenes, but I’d be a bit concerned about not being able to read the Japanese interface, so I can’t exactly rush out to order this for now. ;_;

    • Masengan

      Really? I don’t think I could hear the Japanese voices for the iconic Disney characters.

      • imaguni

        Curiosity!

  • Neutron15

    it would have been better if they remake 358/2 days instead of just Videos

    • Christopher Nunes

      They wanted to but they didn’t have the time to remake it… would’ve been neat, but I wonder why they couldn’t help for more time to work on a remake of the game for the HD Collection?

    Too bad KH2 isn’t in,it’s my favorite out of all the KH series but I’m looking forward to this anyway.

      Well if it makes you feel better it is likely they’ll release a 2.5 in the future!

    Really hope this gets localized.

    Does anyone remember what Combo Master does? Because I keep on drawing blanks when I try to recall.

    Unlikely as it may be, I do wish they’d include some kind of bonus video among the 358 videos that explain what Mickey and Riku were up to during the year Sora snoozed, and how they separated when Chains made such a big fuzz about Riku and Mickey sticking together. I get that it may just be me who has a problem with it, but I just felt so unsatisfied with the explanation given in 358 and KH2.

    • Elvick

      I was always hoping for a game solely for telling Riku and Mickey’s story. There’s a lot they could do with it. Especially Mickey if they tell stuff before Riku. Mickey’s been all over the place.

      • Göran Isacson

        A whole game is something I too hope for deep down in my soul, but at the same time I feel doubtful that SE would ever dedicate a whole game to someone who isn’t Sora (okay so there is Birth By Sleep but that’s the one anomaly in the franchise) or connected to Sora through strange metaphysical means. And considering how it seems like Nomura seems to be catching on that people have grown weary of the spin-offs, that may be an even further off pipe-dream than usual, even if Nomura has also stated that such a game WAS under consideration once.

        UNLESS he somehow finds it in himself to include a whole new bonus-game on Kingdom Hearts 2.5 HD remix or whatever it will be called, that’s all about Mickey’s adventures with Riku on the side. That would be ever so lovely. Perhaps have Mickey be present on the day that Radiant Garden fell to darkness, and fight through the first five disciples Heartless as he tries to evacuate the citizens to Traverse Town? That’d be pretty cool.
