Don’t Be Surprised By A Kingdom Hearts 2 HD Remake

Don’t Be Surprised By A Kingdom Hearts 2 HD Remake

At this year’s Tokyo Game Show, Square Enix announced a high definition remake of the first Kingdom Hearts, Kingdom Hearts Re: Chain of Memories, and Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days. It’s called Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX.

In the upcoming leaked issue of Famitsu, Kingdom Hearts designer Tetsuya Nomura was apparently asked whether or not there would be a HD remake of Kingdom Hearts 2. “It would be unnatural if there wasn’t one,” he replied. Nomura, of course, didn’t say if and when said remake would happen — if it actually does happen.

Still, don’t act too surprised when Square Enix announces the inevitable high definition remake of the 2005 PlayStation 2 classic. Act happy.

スクエニ野村氏『KH2』以降のHD版について「ないと不自然ですよね」とコメント [ゲーム情報!ゲームのはなし]


  • Don’t Be surprised? hey i want this to happen, i want a kingdom hearts 2 hd remake, kingdom hearts 1 as well, my ps2 died and because of all these hd remakes i haven’t brought another one

  • PS2 emulator for either Max or Windows already gives us HD versions of these games, at much higher resolution and graphics details than is capable on any home console.

    • I know, I’ve played through 1 and 2 at 1440p, so 720p or whatever they decide to render at doesn’t interest me. Final mix and 358/2 would be nice, though.

    • Sure, it gives us HD versions of either KH1 and KH2, or Japanese versions of KH1: Final Mix and KH2: Final Mix. It doesn’t, however, give us English versions of KH1:FM and KH2:FM (unless you count poor fan translations).

  • I’m guessing by splitting up KH 1&2 they will most likely partner kh2 with something…probably birth by sleep, I hope they include cut scenes from KH 3D like they are doing with 358/2 days. But most importantly I want them to be released within six months of eachother in English.

  • Why don’t you think about this? What would be the point of making a new, more enpsxeive system, and then just let all the games be played on the system thats 300$ less? You couldn’t play PS2 games on a Playstation 1, nor can you play Xbox 360 games on an Xbox.

  • No, PS3 games are in the new Blu-Ray fomart.PS2 games are in DVD fomart, the PS2 s dvd drive will not read Blu-Ray discs. Also both systems have completely different hardware.PS: a PS3 is backwards compatible and will play PS2 games.
