Kingdom Hearts 3 Bunny on 24 Sep 2012
After that ten second teaser you’re left with wanting more, right? Well we’ve got the solution to your craving! The full trailer for Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD Remix (geez, that’s a mouthful) has finally been released. Watch it now right here:
Can I just quickly add that Donald sounds hilarious when speaking Japanese? The trailer really brings us all into a new stage of anticipation; I can feel my wallet trembling as I type. 358/2 Days also looks quite nice in its new non-DS graphics – note that we will only be receiving the cutscenes in this package, not the entire game.
So, like/dislike? Wanting more? Discuss in the comment section below. We want to know what you think!
Kingdom Hearts 3 Ammar on 22 Sep 2012
So we have a trailer for you! Though… it’s not official, it’s leaked. And it’s not a usual two to three minute video, but rather 9 seconds… and it is off-cam.
But at least it is footage, right?
We’ll keep you updated on its eventual full trailer. Meanwhile, check back on this website for more news.
Kingdom Hearts 3 Roxanne on 22 Sep 2012
Hey you guys, Roxy here (totally still alive!) As of 9:42 AM PST, it was revealed that character designs for an upcoming Kingdom Hearts game meant for the PC would be done by Monster Octopus. If you want an idea of just how such a thing would even look think back to Theatrhythm and the KH Mobile games and you’ll have just a bit of an idea. In terms of action the game appears to be simple in its design and overall execution: a character can be seen leaping, moving about and striking those familiar little treasure chests we all love with a keyblade. This character can also be seen attacking in a manner fans may be slightly familiar with and according to Zephyr of Kingdom Hearts Insider things are only going to get more interesting both for the PC game and the upcoming HD release:
Should we expect that fans are brought into the Keyblade War!? In this work, all players, can become owners of the Keyblade. Earlier in “BEFORE CRISIS: FINAL FANTASY VII”, Square Enix provided us with a game where everyone can become Turks; I didn’t expect this.
By the way, it seems to be firmly confirmed that Disney characters will appear. A video showed “Alice in Wonderland” had appeared on the screen. What other Disney characters will appear? To be honest, I was really anxious. The character designer is Monster Octopus, who made the familiar avatars from “KINGDOM HEARTS Mobile” and “THEATRHYTHM: FINAL FANTASY”.
Furthermore there is one more new work, for the Playstation 3, “KINGDOM HEARTS -HD I.5 ReMIX-”. There will be HD versions of “KINGDOM HEARTS FINAL MIX” and “KINGDOM HEARTS Re:Chain of Memories”, and there will be HD versions of cuscenes summarizing “KINGDOM HEARTS 358/2 Days” to enjoy.
Also in the HD version of “KINGDOM HEARTS FINAL MIX”, it will include Japanese voice acting. Please enjoy the additional cutscene of Cloud and Sephiroth that will also have Japanese voice acting. The KINGDOM HEARTS series is strong because of its story, that many people felt in the middle of the series. The release date will be in the year 2013. The title in the series means that you will be able to enjoy the storyline along the timeline, please look forward to it by all means.
I can’t lie to you all, throw in some disney characters and add a bit of Square and I still feel that nostalgic twinge of excitement that first coursed through my body ten years ago. I would be thrilled if they decided to add characters we weren’t expecting, like Kida and Milo from Atlantis, or perhaps Oliver and Dodger from Oliver and Company–the possibilities are limitless really! What Disney characters would you like to see? What do you think of the designs that will be used? I for one am still trying to get used to the idea of a Kingdom Hearts game for the PC, I mean really is there a medium they HAVEN’T used yet at this point? But I want to hear your opinions guys, so blow that comment section up and tell us all your thoughts!

The annual Tokyo Game Show has commenced and with that said here comes the Kingdom Hearts merchandise! Exciting, right? Figurines, keychains, plushies, all these little cute items to add to your Kingdom Hearts collections. Curious as to what all of this looks like? Look no further! Here are exclusive photos from the Sukueni merchandise booth of Tokyo Game Show 2012. Kingdom Hearts II Formation Arts vol. 3 revealed to be Sora at Destiny Islands, Sora and Ariel in Atlantica, Sora in Timeless River, Sora in Halloween Town, and Sora in Space Paranoids on the Light Cycle with Riku. The figurines seem to be Sora and Riku a la KH3D which is nice… although I will admit I still hate that they chopped off Riku’s long locks! Some of the figurines are gray which leads me to assume that they’re just previews of what is to come (obviously, Bunny).
Here are the pics!
And here is a look at the Kingdom Hearts 10th Anniversary OST titled “Melodies & Memories”:
Photo credit goes to M_Alloc’s blog which can be found here http://marshallalloc.blog90.fc2.com/blog-entry-887.html More pictures can be found there, as well!
So KH fans, which would you get? I personally love the Atlantica figurine with the little glass-like (shh, I know it’s plastic) bubbles and undersea musical theme… although I will admit that part in the game pissed me off numerous times.

So remember how we said that Square and company might be releasing an HD collection of the Kingdom Hearts franchise? That might has become a definitely! According to the official Japan’s Square Enix site,the confirmed titles that will be released in HD include KH 1 Final Mix, 358/2 Days, and RE:CoM. No other titles have been mentioned or confirmed. You may be asking hey, what about KH2 or Birth By Sleep? According to another source, Square plans to re-release the Kingdom Hearts saga in chronological order. For example, 358/2 Days did not release until after KH2 but, like CoM for instance, it tells a story that falls between KH 1 &2. The absence of BBS, the earliest story in the series’ chronology, is a monkey wrench in this theory, but you can sure that other Kingdom Hearts games will appear in another HD collection at some point. Unfortunately due my inability to read Japanese and that is the only announcement of this news, no other information is readily available as of right now such as specific release dates. However, when translations become available we’ll provide more information asap. According to the site, the year 2013 is listed so one can assume that these will be released in Japan sometime around next year.
You may now be asking, “Bunny, what about the platform? I swear if it is on another handheld I will rip off Nomura’s-” Fear not! The site lists the Playstation 3, so I am assuming these will be released on the ever so sleek and cool PS3. Sorry Xbox lovers, no word about the games also being released for that platform as of yet. Also, rumor has it that a PC-compatible version of Kingdom Hearts will also be available. Instead of playing Slender in the dark while clenching your mouse at night you can take out your frustration on some HD Heartless!
So at least we KH fans have another set of goodies to look forward to, right? Although most of us are still shaking our fists in frustration at Nomura begging for KH3 before we croak, we’ll at least be kept busy (at least our wallets will be) with these HD remakes.
So which remake are you looking forward to seeing in HD the most? I think I can speak for most when I say that I’d love to see KH1 with prettier graphics and better sound quality as it was the first KH game to bless our pre-teen lives. Let us know in the comments below what you think!
