    Since I don’t have a PS3, I said the same thing about Sora when playing through Dream Drop Distance. Good enough for me. ^_^

  • Pedro Furtado

    They included 358/2 mainly because of timeline reasons, since it goes at the same time as Chain of Memories. Roxas is also implied several times at Chain of Memories, even at the ending. It fits well in setting the stage for KH2 and I guess Nomura would want you to play it before KH2, which I find it to be a good idea since KH2 doesn’t let a lot of space for you to connect with the organization.

    • Spicydicey

      What’s interesting though is that if you play 358/3 first, you already know the twist of Roxas being Sora’s nobody. Unless I’m wrong in thinking that was ever supposed to be a secret!
      “KH2 doesn’t let a lot of space for you to connect with the organization.”
      But neither does the 358/2 movie! I’m quite disappointed with their portrayal- barely any even have any lines. I think it could of benefitted from some kind of montage of Roxas fighting alongside various Org. memebers in different worlds, just to show them off a bit more.

      • Pedro Furtado

        Good point. I was just thinking about Axel when I said that, *SPOILERS* since I thought that his death in KH2 was rathed underwhelming.

    Would be nice if they just release these separately on the PSN…

    Just so I could get that cheap 100% from 358/2 Days

    I really want to play the original KH (Missed it on the PS2), but I’m not that interessed in Re:CoM (Didn’t really like from what I’ve played)… And there’s so many games to buy, better be careful with my money

    Ah Kingdom Hearts..my first real exposure to Final Fantasy characters. The very first time I played, I got wrecked by Leon in Traverse Town and destroyed by Cloud( and especially destroyed by Sephiroth) in Olympus.

    Certainly a game I never expected to have so much fun and memories with.

    • NewestType

      I use to be able to defeat leon. But not on the “Final Mix Proud Mode”.

      I may have to restart at sephiroth :(

    A good portion of my childhood right there.

      I played this game during middle school hell I coulda swore nearly flashing back during a time I was playing this in my room upstairs in a town house I lived in when listening to the opening theme and playing through the destiny islands trying to find the stuff for the raft that was going to be built for the trio’s inter dimensional travel found myself laughing because of it man nostalgia is a crazy thing.

    Does this game have dual audio ? If it has , I’ll buy it.

    • SunOatBoatMatadorQuattro

      It doesn’t. Only KH2 Final Mix has dual audio.

    • http://twitter.com/#!/kaishou Kaishou

      Of all games people want dual audio for, it has to be Kingdom Hearts.

      • RisukuAozora

        People love their dual audio. I can live without em, but it’s always nice to have both dubs.

        • http://twitter.com/#!/kaishou Kaishou

          I get it I guess but seriously KH jap audio sound like junk.

    • Aoshi00

      It doesn’t, but I imported 1.5 before as well.. It’s nicer to hear the Disney chars in eng though, also overall I think the eng dub is much better…

    • Ixbran

      because Disney characters sound so authentic in the japanese dub that came after their english releases in America ….

      oh wait …

    • leingod

      I usually love original japanese audio for games like these, but KH must be the only exception. Hearing Disney characters speak in japanese is just as weird as hearing japanese Darth Vader in Soul Calibur 4.

  • Revorse

    One thing that I really wish didn’t get forgotten, is how you were able to cycle through the menu with the right analog stick. i like how they mapped the camera to the right analog stick but I wished they made it so that you could hold down a shoulder button to change control back to the menu. Like they did in KH2 basically.

  • Arcana Wiz

    i must be a strange one, cause i liked BBS much more than one and slight more than two….. dont know why it just clicked on me. Even chain of memories is tied with KH1. But tastes/opinions aside i’ll definitly buy it….. when it arrives on south merica.

    • leingod

      BBS was great. I still don’t get why the hell SE hasn’t released it on the PSN store… I wanna replay it on my Vita.

  • Jonas Sampaio Santiago

    There should be a Xion card in Re: Chain of Memories… =/
    It’ll be nice if it comes as a DLC.

  • Alestaos

    Is there enough new content in the game to warrant buying its guide? Never heard or played the final mix, did they add enough to it just to get the guide for that alone? Or is it just little additions like a better narrative and cutscenes?

    “they’re never nearly as good as an official Kingdom Hearts game”

    All that needs to be said.

  • AT-LOW

    I’ve barely finished Final Mix, but I never seen a scene of the photo shown above. How do I see it?

    • Wappuli

      The one with a moogle on top of Donald? I’m pretty sure it was from Re: Chain of Memories.

  • Notquitesure?

    358/2 days is my favourite entry, i very much disagree aginst it being ‘mediocre.’ For me it was awesome knowing how close axel was roxas and how all the stuff in KH II fit together. But can’t wait to pick this up.

    • leingod

      Can’t say it’s my favorite KH game, but I’m bummed they didn’t include the actual game there.

  • Ronldbx6

    I said I wasn’t going to pick this up due to the fact that I’ve already beaten the games multiple times but after watching it, I had a change of heart. I can’t wait to finally try final mix. That’ll give me a somewhat new experience and those fresh and crisp graphics.

  • yellowmage

    358/2 Days is included because of its place in the KH timeline: it begins near the end of the first game, much of it runs parallel to Chain of Memories, and it ends leading directly into KHII.
