    I would actually like that, since I didn’t buy 1.5 and still find little reason to. If it was bundled, I’d get them both.

  • David García Abril

    I hope they bring this pack to the West too.

    Even if it’s only to point it out when people say they don’t understand the story. lol

  • The west is waiting… And what’s the Green Goblin doing on the cover? Oh, never mind. It’s just Master Xehanort…

  • DesmaX

    The hell am I doing here?

  • P4ine

    omg dat kh2.5 boxart looks fabulous right there

  • idrawrobots

    I would get it but that case is terrible! Put it in a real case.

  • doctorpope181

    Is this the official boxart for the West as well? If so I don’t really like it …
    But the collector’s edition looks amazing !

  • Smiech

    A compilation… of compilations. Oh, Square Enix. Never change.

    Aside from that, everything here looks quite nice. Really feelin’ dat 2.5 box art.

  • cameron forsyth

    what’s with the new pixely key blade to the left? i don’t recognise it as one of the new keyblades included in the final mix of birth by sleep or KH2

    • Snorlaxation

      Kingdom Hearts Re: Coded. :)

      • cameron forsyth

        i see.

        • Snorlaxation

          It’s at the very end? If i recall correctly. It’s clunky looking, but also so much …More, in terms of girth. Like a really upgraded (blocky) keyblade.

          • Time Sage

            It’s basically a pixelized version of the kingdom key

  • CaptPlaceholder

    I would totally buy this alongside the “collector’s Edition” of Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 REmix. I don’t care if this will be my… *counts games* FOURTH time buying these games.

  • Snorlaxation

    I LUCKING FOVE that artwork.
    Next step is gonna be all the characters, Final Fantasy/Disney/KH originals all crowding and smiling at you.

  • Wait what

    Square Enix America. Get on that.

  • Stephen Mc Devitt

    The cover looks really cool. Definitely the only PS3 game I’ll get for Christmas.

    Still have to finish Re:Chain of Memories Reverse/Rebirth. Fun card system but the generating rooms are TEDIOUS!

  • Kornelious

    Damn Xehanort! Why you look so EVIL! XD

    That box-art though is amazing! Even better than the last! I hope Square releases a Collectors Edition for 2.5 (A GOOD one this time) Or a bundle which I will buy even though I already have the first one…..December can’t come soon enough! :D

  • Wappuli

    On top of the regular edition and the starter pack, there’s also the collector’s edition.
    It will come with both games and the KHχ anniversary set DL-code, just like the starter pack, but in addition it will also have a Blu-ray music disc and an artbook, and is priced at 14000¥.

    There are also 3 other versions, but they are really just these same ones, but come with a Play Arts Kai figure of Sora.

  • TheManWithPants

    Oh man, Xehanort looks so batshit in that artwork, I love it! Hoping Square brings these to PS4 somehow, so I can have nearly the entire KH series on 1 console.

  • Rabbit

    I want that! I don’t care if I already have 1.5, that looks awesome!

  • DarkLight

    That Box art is epicness!

  • hazelnut1112

    I seriously hope we get this announced in NA. This is too good to pass up.

  • Kufuu

    Meh. Pretty tacky boxart imo.

  • The 15ᵗʰ Angel

    See this is why I was holding off from 1.5 because you would have to be stupid to not have seen this coming I love that box art and I hope it comes stateside.

  • wow. they havent even showed the Deluxe ed. w the limit form sora play arts kai

  • Ridho Siregar

    Up till now I still don’t understand why Sora’s hair color turn lighter in KH II.

  • Rayhan PromisedGallery
    • Göran Isacson

      Agreed, losing the Keyblades makes it a lot less busy. No KH2-Riku or Kairi though. Maybe Nomura wore himself out as he ensured he got Zehanorts crazy eyes JUST right and didn’t have the strength left to draw them.

  • Göran Isacson

    Ha ha, that’s a pretty nice bundle, as sad as it makes me feel that I bought 1.5 HD and to this day have yet to clear it from my backlog… oh well. C’est la vie.
