II.5 Remix

Viewing only articles tagged with "II.5 Remix".

Hey everyone,
I've been experimenting with some image upscalers, and was able to convert the KH2 opening sequence into 4k! Aside from doubling the resolution, it also adds clarity by smartly sharpening the image and decreasing video artifacts. It took a solid 15 hours for my computer to process all those frames, so I'm not sure if/when I'll do another of these. Software used was Gigapixel AI from Topaz Labs.

Today is a great day for Xbox Kingdom Hearts fans, because for the first time, all non-Mobile KH entries can be experienced on the Xbox One, as all HD collections (1.5, 2.5, and 2.8) are now available to be purchased digitally on the Xbox One! In addition to that, it has been confirmed that 'Kingdom Hearts III' will be available on the Xbox Gamepass starting February 25th.
In a surprise announcement, Square-Enix has revealed that both 'Kingdom Hearts 1.5+2.5 HD ReMix' and 'Kingdom Hearts 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue' will be released on the Xbox One in 2020! This marks the first time that the entire series can now be experienced on the Xbox One as opposed to just the PS4.

Originally released last October exclusively in the United States, Kingdom Hearts -The Story So Far- is coming this month to Canada, Latin America, and Europe! This PlayStation 4-exclusive game contains all three previously-released HD compilations:
  • Kingdom Hearts HD I.5 ReMIX, containing Kingdom Hearts Final Mix, Re:Chain of Memories, and a cutscene compilation of 358/2 Days
  • Kingdom Hearts HD II.5 ReMIX, containing Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix, Birth by Sleep Final Mix, and a cutscene compilation of Re:coded
  • Kingdom Hearts HD II.8 Final Chapter Prologue, containing Dream Drop Distance, 0.2 Birth by Sleep -A fragmentary passage-, and the one-hour cinematic χ Back Cover
All of these are contained on two discs, and comprise the entire series except for Union χ and Kingdom Hearts III. If you or anyone you know are looking to get into the series, this is the game to buy!

The Story So Far will release in Canada and Latin America on March 15, and in Europe on March 29. In addition, the United States is receiving restocks for the game if you missed your chance with the first run.
With three months to go before 'Kingdom Hearts III' is finally released, fans in the United States today can now purchase 'Kingdom Hearts: The Story So Far', a compilation of the last three re-releases for the PS4 (HD 1.5+2.5 ReMix and HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue)!
