Just when we thought we'd seen the last Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX news of the year, series creator Tetsuya Nomura comes to the rescue with word of some brand new Kingdom Hearts content that will be making its debut in Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX.
Last week, Nomura sat down with Japan's Weekly Famitsu magazine to discuss plans for the future of the Kingdom Hearts franchise, including the possibility of Square Enix releasing a remastered version of Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance. Though far from an official confirmation, Nomura's interest in recreating Dream Drop Distance gave renewed hope to those fans who'd like to see all of the existing Kingdom Hearts games get the HD treatment.
Now, the Kingdom Hearts creator has revealed even more exciting news. As if the mere presence of Kingdom Hearts 2: Final Mix, Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep and Kingdom Hearts Re:coded on a single disc weren't enough to entice longtime fans of the franchise, Nomura has confirmed plans to include previously unreleased Kingdom Hearts Re:coded content in the upcoming remaster.
So far, only two additional scenes, some sort of battle sequence and a scene connecting the dots between Kingdom Hearts Re:coded and Kingdom Hearts 3D, have been confirmed to be included in the Kingdom Hearts Re:coded film from the next Kingdom Hearts collection. Unfortunately, neither was featured in the recently released Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX or during Square Enix's Jump Festa 2014 presentation, but there's always hope for an appearance in future trailers, right?
Nomura also says that Square Enix brought back the cast of Kingdom Hearts Re:coded to re-record some of the game's voice acting; however, it's unclear whether the sessions weren't meant to touch up certain scenes or if Square Enix actually took the time to record all of the game's dialogue using more-modern recording technology. We've reached out to a Square Enix representative, in hopes of getting more information on all the recent Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX announcements, and will update this post if/when we receive any sort of response.
