14w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements shared a video today that goes hands-on with Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix on PS3.
To quote: When we are older, you'll understand what I meant when I said, 'No, I don't think life is quite that simple.'
So sang Hikaru Utada in her beloved single that opened the original Kingdom Hearts in September of 2002. And so she sings again in this upcoming HD update that famously twisted together the fates of Square Enix characters with Disney icons.
And the lyrics offer a pointed commentary on the re-release, as the narrative of Kingdom Hearts was never quite that simple. And perhaps that's why we love it so much.
Kingdom Hearts begins innocently enough, with a young boy named Sora spending time with his friends, Riku and Kairi. But soon their world, and perhaps all worlds, are threatened by a malignant darkness. Sora, as our intrepid hero, is promptly pulled into the intrigue.
Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix is an incredible collection for fans of the series, and a perfect entrypoint for those that missed the original. It includes the "Final Mix" version of the first Kingdom Hearts, which was never launched in the United States.
This version includes new enemies, items, and other assorted goodies. But now,...
15w ago - Square-Enix Community Manager Lee Williams shared a video today showcasing the remastered music in Final Fantasy X HD on PlayStation 3 below.
To quote: You might have gathered that it's Gamescom week, so there have been lots of goodies coming in recently - like a lovely little trailer comparing some of the gameplay from the original Final Fantasy X with footage from the new HD Remaster version.
It shows off a sequence of battles, focusing on the Overdrive attacks. Check out the difference between SD and HD!
But the new thing we're showing off here, is the arranged version of the battle music!
It's worth pointing out that more than 60 tracks from the original Final Fantasy X soundtrack have been rearranged or remastered in HD audio in the new edition.
Excited much? The game's currently slated for launch this year, and will be available for PS3 and PS Vita. We'll have more soon, so keep checking back!
