So as some of you may have heard, Square Enix made an announcement earlier that they would be releasing a HD Remix of their Kingdom Hearts series for the Playstation 3. Yay! Right?
Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX will include Kingdom Hearts Final Mix, Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories, and Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days. However the collection is sans Kingdom Hearts 2. I suppose that makes sense as all of these games for the most part take place leading up to KH 2.

Good news? Yes. The news I was hoping for? No.
At this point I would like to take a moment and address Square Enix…
PLEASE JUST !@#$% ANNOUNCE KINGDOM HEARTS 3 ALREADY! SERIOUSLY !@#$%^. What’s going to be next? Kingdom Hearts HD 2.486465498 ReMiX 3-D Fireworks and Confetti Edition!? Roxas Gets a Puppy? Just make Kingdom Hearts 3 already. Please?
Now that I have regained my composure, Square Enix announced that Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX will be out in Japan sometime next year. No word yet has surfaced if/when it will come to North America or Europe.
All in all I will buy this collection if/when it comes my way. But, seriously here is to hoping that I will see KH 3 in the next decade.
UPDATE: Well…crap… more news… not really the good kind either.
“Update: Square Enix is referring to Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX as a “video work” (
映像作品). Kotaku asked Square Enix booth reps at the Tokyo Game Show if the game would be playable, or simply HD video; however, they would not elaborate.”

Seriously… if this is true, screw you Square Enix. I almost don’t have enough fight left in me for crap like this. Here I thought that you were doing something that I would enjoy… but no you disappoint me… again. What exactly is “video work” anyway? Why can’t we just get KH 3 and live happily ever after? At this point I will settle for HD remastering of Kingdom Hearts and Kingdom Hearts 2! WHY? WHY? WHY DO YOU DO THIS TO ME?
I has a sad now.
