Playstation Japan has recently posted some screenshots of 'Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 ReMix', which for the most part weren't really new. However, one of the screenshots did provide a first look at the collection's title selection menu:

'Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 ReMix' will be released March 28th in North America and March 31st in Europe.

Hey there video editors! Got some more content for you to work with. This time around it's the Kingdom Hearts Re:Coded movie.

With the PS4 versions of 1.5 + 2.5 coming out in a matter of months, I put a hold on recording KH2FM and BBSFM. But I went ahead and recorded this, since Re:Coded is pre-rendered and likely won't be getting any improvements on PS4 (though if it does, we will revisit it).

The next few months are an exciting time for the Kingdom Hearts community, with 2.8 on the horizon, then 1.5 + 2.5 shortly after. We hope you'll stick with us for news updates, community events, and those sweet, sweet vids.

According to the Amazon Germany listing of 'Kingdom Hearts 2.8 HD Final Chapter Prologue', the cinematic title in the game, 'Kingdom Hearts χ[chi] Back Cover' is mentioned to be 80 minutes long, putting it at around half the runtime of the '358/2 Days' and 'Re:coded cinematics.
Our newest media reporter, @Karuta, is hard at work recording KINGDOM HEARTS HD 2.5 ReMIX for us. Previous posts of the ending have included fan translations and fan subs. By modding the game, we now have an official translation of Re:Coded's secret ending. The video, of course, still has the Japanese audio, but with the very same English subtitles you'll see when the collection releases worldwide this December.

You can download the video by clicking here. We'll have a full archive page up when we have more videos ready to go -- so please stay tuned!

Courtesy of the always hard-working SQEX☆GAL, we now have a full transcript of all the secret scenes in the newly released KINGDOM HEARTS 2.5 HD Remix. @Ami Mizuno updated us yesterday with an early translation, but this one includes another new Re:Coded scene and is a complete transcript, including some interesting translator notes.

This may go without saying but if you'd like to remain spoiler-free for your own playthrough of 2.5, stay away! I've hidden everything under spoiler tags just to be sure, but tread carefully!

Re:Coded Secret Movies
Braig: That was a troublesome plan, but it all went accordingly, didn’t it?

Braig: Master Xemnas isn’t here, so does that mean it’s already begun?

Young Master Xehanort: Yes.

いやぁ ゼアノートの爺さんはやっぱり怖いねぇ
Braig: Well then! That old man Xehanort really is frightening.

Braig: How far will he read?

Translator's Note: (My opinion: Braig uses the verb 読む which is specifically used for reading, and given the stress Nomura has put on the term “Tome of Prophecy”, I am inclined to think that’s what he’s referring.)

Braig: Honestly, I don’t really know what that old man’s real goal is.

Braig: You are yourself now too, but do you got it figured out?

Young Master Xehanort: The fate which I must follow as an omen is decided.

Braig: In short, you don’t really get it yet.

Young Master Xehanort: Keyblade Masters have Keyblades that are passed down for generation after generation.

Young Master Xehanort: And during that long history, the number of apprentices increase...

Young Master Xehanort: The number of inherited Keyblades also increase in great numbers, but...

Young Master Xehanort: Among them, one is the oldest...

Young Master Xehanort: For sure it is the Keyblade that Master Xehanort possesses.

Young Master Xehanort: It is the mark of inheritance.

Young Master Xehanort: I haven’t obtained that yet.

Braig: I see how it is then.

Braig: That’s has to do with the Keyblade War too, right?

Braig: Whatever, I’ll go towards my own goals regardless.

Braig: So, who shall I take with me?

Translator's Note: My conclusion: In this scene, Braig and Young Master Xehanort have come into being once again, but Xehanort cannot wield a Keyblade because he hasn’t been given the mark of inheritance yet. Also, as I mentioned in the note above, Braig mentions Old Man Xehanort reading, which I am inclined to think he refers to the Tome of Prophecy, seeing as both these secret scenes were designed to bring attention to Kingdom Hearts X [chi].

Additional Re:Coded Scene (takes place before entering Castle Oblivion)
Maleficent: That explains it...

Maleficent: I didn’t recognize it because he called it some sort of “data world.”

Maleficent: The Tome of Prophecy!

Maleficent: Once, a long time ago, there was a book called by that name.

Maleficent: It was a book that documented the complete future of the worlds.

Pete: Oh yeah? If there really was something like that, wouldn’t you be free to do whatever you wanted with the worlds?

Maleficent: It would seem that from that book, you could go as far as taking out people and power that existed in the future, reproducing the world of the future.

Pete: What? Worlds and people from a book?

Pete: No matter how you look at it, that’s got to be a fairytale!

Pete: You had me going there for a second

Maleficent: Yes... It’s just like a fairytale.

Maleficent: But... Wouldn’t you say the so called “data world” is the same thing?

Maleficent: Perhaps there is some connection between that Tome of Prophecy from the past and the journal they made for the sake of leaving a record.

Pete: This is getting interesting, Maleficent!

Maleficent: We really must get our hands on this so called, “data”.

Translator's Note: My Conclusion: Just like how in Recoded, worlds are made out of the data in Jiminy’s Journal, worlds and more can also be recreated out of the Tome of Prophecy. Maleficent obviously heard about it before, maybe even in the Keyblade War era.
