Square Enix PAX East 2013

Are you a Kingdom Hearts fan? Excited for Kingdom Hearts, Chain of Memories, and 358/2 Days to play in HD? oprainfall just finished viewing an exclusive build of the English version of Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX and we’d like to share our thoughts.

Led by the one of the game’s localization staff we were able to view a demo of Atlantica. It’s an early build so nothing is final yet, but the obvious improvement includes a game entirely in HD. Everything is crisp and looks great on an HDTV. New camera controls are featured to make it easier to look around, and I think people are going to have fun playing a game that came out eleven years ago with a makeover. It was hard to tell if the audio has been touched up or not, but the English voices sound just as good as they did years ago.

I wasn’t allowed to play the demo myself, but we joked that if I tried to play I would crash the game by trying to get to Halloween Town. That would’ve been awesome, right?

    Dat poster there. I’d steal it if I could 😀 I hope the physics of the games was improved. Nothing annoyed me as much as missing a jump by a hair’s breadth when I was racing Riku on Destiny Islands.

      I love the poster too. Nothing quite like clean, simple box art. I hope that’s a pre-order bonus or something

    • Yeah it definitely is a nice poster. It’s the only thing they allowed me to take a picture of.

    So they mapped camera control to the right analog stick in KH1? I’m sure most people are happy about that, but I actually liked how the right analog stick controlled the command menu in the original game (since you could move and select items/magic at the same time).

    • Well, if it lets you customize the controls like Kingdom Hearts II did, I believe I remember that you could set it so you can set the right stick to the menu like originally.
