The Pirates of the Caribbean world was always weird to me... and now it looks even weirder in HD. It just doesn't look like it fits. Tron fit nicely but not Pirates.

these games got weird but i fucking love them

This looks very pretty. Looks like they did a great job on the HD remake.

Yeah, the Pirates of the Caribbean bits look a bit out of place compared to the artstyle of the rest of the game... but mannn, it doesn't look bad at all. I don't get the hate.

Chicken Little, tight.

The Collectors edition was exclusive to the SE store so fuck them. Was willing to overlook the fact that ill have 2 copies of 1.5 but i can't over from there. Really sucks. :(

Looks good!

This looks pretty good for a remix.

I completely suppressed the awful The Little Mermaid world comprising entirely of a rhythm minigame. Now it's all coming back to me and I want to kick something.

II.5 is a really weird way to write 2.5

Yeah,The level just doesn't quite fit. It might have worked better if they changed Sora's artstyle just for that level so that he fits in better. They have done it before. I don't know what they could have done with Donald and Goofy. It was weird that the "realistic" Pirate's world was just, OK with the giant talking dog and duck wizard.

So fucking hype.

Donald and Goofy not getting remarked on was what always seemed weird to me. It's not that they don't fit in aesthetically, because I could live with that, but dogs and ducks are known quantities and seething anthropomorphic versions walking around would throw anyone for a loop. Even a little snarky one-liner about it would have sufficed, but ignoring their presence completely is bonkers.

A horrible trailer for an incredible game collection.

@emthebrave: Kingdom Hearts is really known for having a great and consistent artstyle that could blend all these different IPs. Pirates was just a real weakspot.

Yes put the fucking Little Mermaid level in the trailer, that'll get people excited. Watching all this is really killing my nostalgia. They need to get KH III out fast before I start thinking all of this is really stupid. Right now I only suspect that it is...

I wish they would release these on Vita

Posted by sunsetstreek

I know after the shit week i'm about to have, it'll be nice to have Kingdom Hearts 2 in HD at the end of it.

1.5 was just fantastic (turns out the first game held up WAY better than I thought) and I am really looking forward to this !

Posted by Jack_Lafayette

Oh, man, I forgot that Chicken Little movie was even a thing.

Posted by Dizzyhippos

You know regardless of your opinion on KH you have to respect there commitment to there ridiculousness

I loved the Nightmare Before Christmas levels. For whatever reason, I only played them during the night. Birth by Sleep was fantastic and it's great people who missed it can now play it.

I actually kind of love how everyone just rolls with it. I imagine that they all go home at the end of the day and say to their respective families, "man, the weirdest shit happened to me today..."

I am so stoked. I preordered the Collector's Edition and I can't wait for it to get here.

I know KH as a series is all kinds of dumb, but it's fun. Just watching this stuff brings back so many good gaming memories, especially that Tron and Winnie the Pooh stuff.

And hey, that Little Mermaid world was okay. Sure it was just rhythm games, but it was a change of pace and the music was pretty great. :D

I don't really care about Kingdom Hearts, but man, every time I hear the music for Deep Dive or the Organization 13 music, I'm like "YEAH, Kingdom Hearts!"

@mindchamber: Having just replayed one, story-wise, yeah, you could probably skip it and read a wiki or something. For as fun as the game is, not much actually happens in main the story. But, you would get much more out of the story of two If you played one.

It was fun to see Sora grow as a character, even if it was only physical. Riku's character arch has a way better pay off if you played both games. He and Sora have several "Fuck Yeah" moments in KH2, that would mean next to nothing if you hadn't played the first one.
