Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX coming to PS3

#21falconesquePosted 10/7/2012 8:55:02 AM
If they adjusted the camera and other gameplay aspects of KH1 to be more like KH2....

With respect, and this is more for SE/D's bean counters if they happen to crawl past: Absolutely disagree here. If they change one hair on KH's aged head, they'll change more, and the crew they have now are not the equals of KH's original development team. Upgrade the graphics, please, but leave it at that.

In other words: That's surely a lovely shade of indelible, waterproof red lipstick, no argument, but don't slather it atop the Mona bloody Lisa's elusive smile! Don't mess with the original, y'know?

Upgrade the graphics, please, but leave it at that.

Going by the trailer, they already converted the Triangle button into a "reaction command" for the 4th menu slot, which they removed. And have replaced everyone's model with their Re:CoM/DDD model (which I'm really hoping doesn't ruin Sora's smile before the scene at the end of HB1).

And are converting 100 text scenes from Days into voiced high quality scenes. I find it weird that they haven't mentioned any changes to Re:CoM at this point, with how much they've said about the other two right out of the gate.

I can see it now.

>1.5 ReMIX releases with a heavily doctored KH1FM
>2.5 ReMIX releases with vanilla KH2

At least it'd confirm Square is trolling us.

Going by the trailer...

Direct link, please. (Hey, you mentioned it. ;j)

You'd reported the other morsels previously, back on 9/25/2012. I'm disgusted by those changes; didn't feel a need to vent that disgust.

I never noticed the jaw-flapping or the eight-point compass rose movement in KH, but those are blatant and jarring in KH2 and KH-ReCOM. I can see why they'd use them, of course -- they're less costly to manipulate and render -- but they are inferior, far less refined. And I have no doubt they will feel no remorse whatsoever for killing that smile.

If you don't want that to happen, tell 'em "No!" now. No deal.

I find it weird that they haven't mentioned any changes to Re:CoM

Actually they spoke volumes. KH-ReCOM for NTSC-J is programmatically linked to KH2-FM, yes? They're going with the standalone version (NTSC-U/C). No Final Mix.

And high-quality FMVs for ReCOM are found only in KH2's new-game opening sequence; there are none of that quality in ReCOM itself.

I can see it now.

Exactly.

My bad.

http://www.square-enix.co.jp/kingdom/khhd/

The "reaction command" goes by quick, but it's when Sora is fighting a Defender. It says "Arcanum".

You'd reported the other morsels previously

Whoops. I did remember saying them, just couldn't remember where. There were a bunch of topics on this remake around different boards.

I can see why they'd use them, of course

They could also go with it being for consistency, which worries me a bit. If this leaves Japan, what would they do with a dub? If their is a second collection with KH2, and if they go with their "consistency" with the dub, does that mean Corey Burton as Ansem the Wise instead of Christopher Lee?

That's a lot of "if"s, but if it does end up happening, I'll be annoyed.

They're going with the standalone version (NTSC-U/C).

I didn't even think of that >.< The way the standalone handles bonus cards is really annoying.

That's the top-level site for the "video work", BTW, not direct to the so-called trailer. The kotaku.com site may have had one in its sidebar.

They could also go with it being for consistency

Yes, that would be a bit of a "We meant to do that" excuse, wouldn't it?

Lots of people forget that Christopher Lee made his name doing "cheap" vampire flicks. (Me, I like one of his few "sympathetic" acting roles, stuffed into Circle of Iron. He coulda done Gandalf proud.)

Current attitude on SE's remake trustworthiness on the FFVII board seems decidedly thumbs-down, FWIW.

Whoops. I copied the URL instead of grabbing the link address.

"cheap" vampire flicks

Those are the best kind.

HD 2.5 is obviously going to be happening soon after, why sell 5-6 games on one disc when they can sell them with 2 (and a half) games per disc and make the same money as every other company doing it,

Seems like it makes sense to me. I figured that was the case.

need I point out GoW Collection came with just GoW1/2 on one disc

It came out before God of War 3. That would be one reason for it.

>1.5 ReMIX releases with a heavily doctored KH1FM
>2.5 ReMIX releases with vanilla KH2


This would be fine mockery. As long as BBS ends up on one of these I don’t care.

they haven't mentioned any changes to Re:CoM

To be fair, they already re-doctored that entire game already. Seems silly to do it again.

I'm disgusted by those changes

Disgusted? Oh spare us the dramatics. You get “disgusted” when you see a news story of a guy raping kids or something (unless you’re into that). You get “mildly annoyed” at best when you see changes in a video game that you already own.

If you don't want that to happen, tell 'em "No!" now. No deal.

Yes, because they always listen to American fans on a message board (And thank goodness they don’t)

By the way, does ANYONE know if this is even coming stateside? Anyone? Anyone? Is all this debate even worth the time?

No, I don't. That would be "outraged". You're not a parent?

"Disgust" applies for me. Understanding is still incomprehensible to you, after all the posts we've swapped?

By the way, does ANYONE know if this is even coming stateside?

"Out next year in Japan." No change, though they've now couched that the KH-Days stuff so far is what they can accomplish in that timeframe. Hints, nothing concrete.
