There's still no knowing if Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix will ever break Japanese borders, but at least we've got a bit more info.
Square Enix has released several new screenshots and fresh details for the anticipated title that's set to launch in Japan on March 14 for the PlayStation 3.
We know that both Kingdom Hearts Final Mix and Kingdom Hearts RE: Chain of Memories will be included in this collection, along with remastered HD cut-scenes from Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days . The latter game – i.e., the full adventure – was supposed to have been included in Remix but "time constraints" limited the developers to only include various story segments. As for improvements, the compilation will boast newer and "highly detailed character models" designed for Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance , and previously unvoiced cut-scenes will now have voiced dialogue.
Lastly, you can expect better combat with familiar features such as the "Combo Master," and the camera is also getting an overhaul. So in general, you should be looking at the very best versions of the two games in question. Let's just hope Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix eventually finds its way stateside…there are fans here, too, ya know.
