See How Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix Upgrades 358/2 Days Cutscenes

By Ishaan . February 7, 2013 . 11:30am

Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days on the Nintendo DS had a mix of cutscene styles. Some cutscenes in the game were CG movies while others used the in-game character models. While Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix won’t include the game itself, it will have close to three hours of 358/2 Days cutscenes that summarize the game’s story.


All of the cutscenes from Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days will be high-resolution in Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix. This means that in-game cutscenes which looked like this:


Now look like this:


That was an example of an in-game cutscene from 358/2 Days being converted. The CG cutscenes may not look all that different. Below, you can see the original Nintendo DS version on the left and the HD 1.5 Remix version on the right:




Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix will be released in Japan on March 14th.

    I love how he is staring right at him as he prepares to devour the yaoi stick ( koi to senkyo to chocolate style). Anyway Looks good. I hope it is leaving nippon.

  • It’d be cool is SE didn’t make me import this. But I will if I have to. I need more KH in my life, stat.

    Also, I know about the english voice acting article. No need to mention it.

    • Didn’t Roxas’s voice actor leak that this was coming stateside a few weeks ago?


      Oh wait…

      Still, I would take it for what it’s worth. There’s no real reason for a VA to lie on something like that…

        • God, this. No one seems to understand that nothing is announced until it’s announced. And then it still might not come out.

          Where were you two weeks ago?

          • DawnWolf

            He wasn’t there, but I posted the same thing. We’ll probably hear something about it at E3 if at all.

      • Wappuli

        He wouldn’t be lying even if this doesn’t come becouse the only thing he leaked was that he is recording voices for it, nothing about a release outside japan.
        There’s still a chance that the game will be dual-audio in japan, since if I remember correctly, english voices for KH are quite popular there.

        • Setsuna ♥

          Disney wouldn’t pay for there to be English Voices in the extra scenes for a “Japan only” game. Its pretty much confirmed just from the fact hes doing voices specifically for those scenes in 1.5 HD that its coming out in the US (at some point in time that is).

          Now we just wait for the inevitable “announcement”

  • SunOatBoatMatadorQuattro

    I see. Xion isn’t invisible in HD. XD

  • omegagemo

    Meh, would’ve been nice if they remade the game ala Re:Chain of Memories. I never did finish it on DS, the controls were just too annoying.

    • Nightmesh

      Same. I keep hoping they pop out and say “Hey guys we’re just joking about a movie and have been working a Re: just like you thought and wanted. We even updated the multiplayer for online play.”

      • Sean ‘Geg’ Reddie

        Apparently they WERE working on it, but said it’d take too much time away from developing new games.

        • omegagemo

          Ahh, well in that case they have my blessing. New KH games take priority!

  • Otoya

    already preordered mine~~~~~
    WHen it launch in English, I will order again~~~~

  • Ricardo C

    For people wondering why Xion isn’t in the DS screen is because that isn’t the same scene as the HD one.

  • Mike

    Days didn’t have CG cutscenes, it had FMV using the engine of the PS2 games.

  • Never

    Can’t wait to watch this!
