It’s similar to the 1.5 ReMIX pack that released this year, and houses Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix, which only previously released in Japan, an HD edition of Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep Final Mix, and Kingdom Hearts Re:code, which is a collection of the games cut-scenes in HD.

    Funny thing is that I just dreamed about playing Kingdom Hearts 3 last night! :P

    On topic, KH 2.5 Remix HD was a given, so if it releases in 2014 then KH3 will be released in 2015 or something.

    I wish KH:DDD was included too!

    @7 those are likely going to happen. Sounds good though.

    So much better than the first collection.
    If you ask me, they should’ve bundled 1, 2 and BBS instead of shoving Re:CoM and a collection of cutscenes from Days and Coded.

    @7 Don’t hold your breath. Its a fairly recent game, and with Nintendo’s archaic licensing habits, its probably going to say on the 3DS only for quite some time.

    for DDD to be in ps3 it’s really complicated due to licensing reasons

    DDD will, no doubt, make it to PS3 and/or PS4, but probably not until 2015, probably as a digital download. On the Wii U, though? Not likely.

    It’s absolutely ridiculous for anyone to think that just being on the 3DS will prevent it from coming out before KH3.

    @9 – Yeah, you’re right because nobody needs the storyline to make sense or anything…

    @10 – Castlevania: Mirror of Fate and Resident Evil: Revelations say hi.

    @15 I never said it couldn’t happen. I just said the licensing situation is complicated. You have to licence every game on Nintendo platforms through Nintendo themselves.

    The question is, will Square do the necessary paperwork?

    @16 – That’s a silly question that you already know the answer to. They stand to make more money off the game and Nomura has said that:

    1) It is absolutely vital to play 3D to understand the plot of KH3
    2) He wants every game leading up to KH3 on one system.

    So, uh, yeah. They will. Silly to even question it.

    @17 Yes, but it only came out last year, on current gen hardware no less.

    If / when it does happen, I can’t see it being before 2015 at the earliest. We can probably expect KH3 sometime in 2016… if were lucky.

    WHEN, not if, WHEN DDD comes to PS3, it will most likely be 2015, since they want one game every year. What someone else pointed out that I hadn’t thought of before, though, is that DDD is the only major title in the series to not get a Final Mix version.

    I hadn’t thought of it before, but selling DDD: Final Mix with extra content for the PS3 would actually go a long way towards justifying selling the title on its own, like they no doubt will. The whole “it’s on a current gen system” argument is absolutely nonsense. It’s on a portable. That doesn’t even count. And again, Mirror of Fate and RE: Revelations say hi. KH:DDD was, after all the lowest selling single release in the franchise’s history.

    It’s not hard to see the pattern.

    2013: KH 1.5
    2014: KH 2.5
    2015: DDD
    2016: KH3

    @14
    Oh, please.
    Days and Coded and even BBS were unnecessary. I haven’t touched DDD, so I can’t really comment on that but CoM was pretty much the only spin-off that actually mattered.

    The story is so ridiculously convoluted now that I doubt even I could actually piece it together anyway.
    If anything, it is precisely the spin-offs that are making the storyline more convoluted than it already is.
