We told you last week that a Kingdom Hearts HD Collection was coming. Well, it turns out that Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD reMIX, as it’s called, is only for Japan. Gaming site Gematsu was told by a Square Enix representative that the collection is “only for the Japanese market.”
We have heard about legal issues preventing Final Mix versions of these games from being released outside of Japan, and Kingdom Hearts: Final Mix is a part of this collection. Still, this issue seems avoidable: Square could cut the special content and release a basic HD version of the game.
This is certainly disappointing news, but we’ll let you know if anything changes. We hope something does.
