Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD Remix

Japanese blog Esuteru had some information that expanded on what has been done to the DS original game Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days for the upcoming HD re-release Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD ReMIX. Here’s what to expect:

  • Story will be retold in HD (Are you serious? No way!) in Theater Mode
  • Higher polygon models will be used versus the low-poly DS models
  • Even more story will be told with extended and re-worked cutscenes
  • All scenes will be fully voiced instead of the majority being text only

It’s basically a reiteration of information that’s been shared before, but perhaps they want to get the idea across that there are more scenes than the original? I’m totally happy with reworked, fully voiced cutscenes, but extra scenes are a nice bonus!

Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD ReMIX is due out in Japan on March 14th, 2013. Sadly we still have no word on a worldwide release, but with Kingdom Hearts’ huge success, you can bet other countries will be getting it.


About Randy Thompson

[Former Staff] Just a normal nerd who loves his computer, video games, anime, manga, and the like. I love to draw and graduated from the Art Institutes for animation so I could bring my drawings to life.

As an author at oprainfall, I write up news articles and such as well as review new and current anime.

I also love Dragon Ball (subbed)—it’s kind of my own pet obsession.

  • Awesome! I hope we (and europe) get it!

  • Dan

    If we don’t get it I’ll cry.

  • So this is what we could call KH: 358/2 Final Mix

  • imposabear

    *Sigh* god damn it……I am going to go live on Saturn now. XD

  • Wait wait! HOLD ON. So basically they are making 358/2 Days into a movie and to release it with the 1.5 HD Remix?
    PLEASE. OH PLEASE COME TO AMERICA. *Throws my money at Square*
    Then Kingdom hearts 2 can be bundled with a PS3 version of Birth by sleep with Cutscenes from Re:Coded ;D

  • I have this huge doubt in my gut that we’ll get it. Just knowing Square’s track record with the Final Mix versions of the games, which is present in this package. If we do end up getting it worldwide, I’ll make sure to pick it up, even though I don’t own a PS3.

    • We have received updated versions of handheld games before though. Chain of Memories was updated as re:COM for the PS2, and the mobile game “coded” originally only exclusive to Japan was released internationally via re:coded for the DS. I know it may be a long shot, but it’s still possible.

  • We Be Getting It just Not Final Mixs
    I Expect We Get our Announcement Before May 1
    I Expect We Get our Release Date Before June

  • Sounds amazing.

    Favorite KH story was 358/2 Days. Singlehandedly made me want Roxas to be the protagonist of the series. He had amazing depth in that game.

  • SecretX

    do you get to play KH 358/2? or is it just a movie.

  • Britney Spears

    PlayStation fans really deserve getting this! *-*

  • MegaX50

    So the question is, do I hope for a 360 release (doubt it) Or do I start saving and finally break down and buy a ps3?

    I’d say it’s a 70/30 chance that we get/don’t get. While square hasn’t brought out any Final Mix versions here, this is a HD remix on a different system. Given how many of those exist and how well they sell here, I would hope that square will follow the trend.
