As if it wasn’t enough that Kingdom Hearts fans would be getting the first two games in the series remastered in glorious high definition in the form of Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD Remix, it has been revealed that many of the cutscenes from 358/2 Days will also be rebuilt from scratch and included in the upcoming collection. Today we learned that these scenes run 2 hours and 50 minutes in total, which by cinematic standards could be considered a long movie. Fully voiced and partially rewritten, this may prove to be the definitive way to experience the 358/2 Days story.
Also worth noting is that the music selection accompanying Days has been rerecorded by composer Yoko Shimomura, and features live instruments throughout.
Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD Remix includes Kingdom Hearts, Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories, and remastered cutscenes from Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days and releases March 14th, 2013 in Japan on the PlayStation 3.
