Anyone else find it odd that they FINALLY announced KH3, but still hasn't formally announced 2.5? I first thought when the kh3 trailer started, that it was a 2.5 announcement before they showed sora on the island in new detail. I'm just suprised he would announce kh3 without 2.5. Could it mean there is no 2.5? Doesn't make much sense but Puting it out there...

They didn't announce 2.5HD during the conference because that wasn't the big deal.

I'm sure they'll talk about it later, along with some new info about III​.

We have to wait for the Square Enix conference, yesterday was only the Sony one.

If you turn the issue around it's actually not that much of a hindrance since the hype for KH III might also be a boon for the HD collections. Making people want to get up to speed on the series in anticipation for KH III and fill up the waiting time.

Proritizing the revealing of KH3 over 2.5 doesn't make the latter any less real or important; as Echo said, Square probably felt that they could be more effective by giving the spotlight to KH3. Even if 2.5 isn't formally revealed later, that wouldn't mean the game won't exist.

Wait for TGS for 2.5. It's sure to be there.

There's still news to come. I'm not surprised it wasn't shown yet, but it's mere existence was already pretty much "announced" at the end of 1.5.

I'm not really surprised, per se, because it wouldn't make sense to announce KH3 for the PS4 and then immediately fire off that another collection is being made for the PS3. If anything we'd hear about it at TGS, but I think S-E came here to hype up KH3 as far as Kingdom Hearts is concerned. No point announcing the next one when we don't even have the first collection yet.

No, considering 1.5 isn't even out yet in here. I assume the announcement would be made after that regardless of any news on KH3.

Especially at a conference where almost everything is about PS4. Vita got an honorable mention and PS3 was practically backstage lighting up compared to the spotlights the other two got.

I would bet on TGS for 2.5's reveal, like previous posters have said, it wouldn't make much sense to announce 2.5 over here, especially with all of the advertising that they are giving 1.5.

Also, Nomura already hinted at 2.5 during some interview. Saying something to the effect of, "it would be ridiculous not to have a 2.5 after a 1.5."

They will probably wait till after 1.5 is released in the rest of the world. If they would have announced 2.5 now that will take away from 1.5's advertising.

I was wondering about this too but everyone else have made a good point. All i'm hoping for is that the announcement and release dates aren't far off.

It will probably be like 1.5. They will announce it at TGS, it will come out in Japan around March, and come out everywhere else in late August early September.

There's already evidence that suggests a KH2.5 HD Re:Mix is in the works in the credits of the first collection. They credit KH2, Re:Coded, and BBS I believe. So at this point I believe it's only a matter of time until they announce it. How long will that be? I haven't the slightest clue although I bet the Tokyo Game Show might have new news regarding the future of the series and that's in what September? It's a few months away, but I could most definitely see something like that there especially any kind of new news regarding the franchise as a whole.

We definitely need to keep our eyes and ears open for the rest of the year. Japan Expo next month, September with the Tokyo Game Show, October with the D23 Expo and December with Jump Festa.

I wonder if part of Dream Drop Distance will be included in KH3 as a CGI prologue or something.
