Nah, don't overworry (is that even a word?) yourself. That won't happen. Imagine the backlash from all the people attending that private event if they really had the nerve to change their mind... that would basically be a disaster recipe.

Maybe i am a tad bit over-thinking things a bit for it. But knowing that Capcom had the nerve to canceled some games for a series i just started to like really makes me untrustworthy about Game Company unless if there name begins with a N and has a plumber as there mascot.

Awesome! I hope we don't have to wait too long to get our hands on this game!
I wasn't really blown away by the trailer or the screenshots, idk if it's because it just doesn't look as good as 1.5, they're trying to tone it down with the bullshots, or I'm so used to seeing KH in HD now that it just doesn't "wow" me anymore. xD

So a question for you guys. This is really a minor concern for me, but do you think they'll replace the Japanese voice clips for the Absent Silhouette Org members with their English voices? Even if just with archived audio from Re:CoM.

I'd assumed that they would replace Sephiroth's voice in KH 1.5 ReMIX with George Newbern, however they didn't do this. With that in mind, I'm worried they'll drop the ball here and we'll be stuck with the Japanese voices for the CO members when you fight them in KH2FM 2.5...

We won't be stuck with Japanese voices, I can tell you that much.

Iirc, that's exactly what the did for the original KH2FM: they used the voice clips from Re:CoM, so it should go without saying that we'll be getting English audio throughout the entire game.

Again, them not replacing the original audio or redubbing over voice actors who are no longer involved in the series is not the same situation. We understand why you'd be concerned about it but you can't keep comparing the two and using it to strengthen your fears no matter how much we explain otherwise.

I remember that this has been discussed somewhere, but let me just reiterate my opinion again.

I personally believe that they will, and should, replace the Japanese voice clips with their English counterparts. I'm not expecting something as grandiose as hiring the CO platoon's voice actors to record battle grunts, but it'd be a very huge plus if they do. Anyway, my point is that why not dub it, considering that they do have the archive audio files from Re:CoM?

As for Sephiroth's voice in 1.5, they stayed with Lance Bass (archive) clips because that was how it was in the English version of KH1. I believe they want to be as faithful as possible to KH1. It's like how they could've gone with redubbing Sora but decided to stick with his pre-pubescent voice, albeit in a lesser scale.

i just dont understand why in kingdom hearts hd 1.5 remix the japanese had the choice to play in both english and japanese but we only got the option of english. itll probably be the same with hd remix 2.5. I WANNA EXPERIENCE THEM BOTH IN JAPANESE. its the language that i major in but im not fluent. it would be amazing to have the option to play in japanese with english subtitles. now im gonna have to buy the japanese one and not understand anything except some of the language lol.

Um, do you mean the Japanese copies of the game? Sorry, but I don't think so...

I've got the Japanese copy of the game, and there certainly isn't any option to play the game in English, not even English subtitles. Probably you've confused it with another game?

ya they had confirmed it that in the japanese version you can play both in english and japanese but only with japanese subtitles for both languages. i guess that option changed before release. either way, im still buying KH HD 2.5 remix in japanese. i already imported kingdom hearts 2 final mix+ a while back and played it on my ps2 and got through it just fine. i can do it again lol.

It was a mistranslation from the early TGS 2012 reports. Attendees were commenting that KHFM, which originally had English audio, had been switched back to Japanese. This was very quickly cleared up but it looks like many people unfortunately didn't get the message.

If you could reread Flanix's post again, he stated that he has the Japanese version of 1.5, which only has Japanese audio. They did not confirm that the remasters would have dual audio at any point.

Here is a comparison of BBS running on an emulator compared to the screenshot from the 2.5 HD Remix.

We all know that SE is altering their promotion screenshots quite a bit (I'll eat my hat if Terra's arm will actually look this different in the final game), but I think doubling the texture size (to PS2 standards) and setting the polygon count a bit higher is a given. Maybe they even rework the keyblades models, because they will look bad in HD.

The Keyblades in BBS, from what I remember, were 2.5D, as in, 2D textures, sometimes and 3D in some parts. It's mostly noticeable in Earthshaker when Terra faces the Symphony Master. So I think making proper Keyblade models is a given at this point.

Thanks for this! ;)

That wouldn't make much sense. Since there is a necessity this time *unlike 1, CoM and 2* to create better textures they might as well put PS3-res textures in the game. They are remaking the textures either way.
