Hey everyone! Just in time for the release of 1.5 + 2.5, we're finishing off the 2.8 collection with the Dream Drop Distance cutscenes, subtitle free. Naturally, this is a huge step up in quality over the original 3DS scenes. I hope you all enjoy using these however you see fit.

On the subject of Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 ReMix, I'd like to talk about what you can expect in terms of cutscene uploads. First off, we won't be re-recording Re:Chain of Memories, 358/2 Days, or Re:Coded. Those cutscenes are all pre-rendered, and have no graphical changes whatsoever on the PS4 version. And since there doesn't seem to be an option to disable subtitles on the collection, there would be no point in doing that again. And another note, I'll likely be recording Birth by Sleep first. I've heard talk of occasional stuttering during scene transition in KH2, so I'll delay that in case they have a patch that fixes it. And KH1 will be saved for last, since we've already got HD cutscenes for 1, granted with a few missing scenes, and of course slightly lower resolution, since the PS3 version was upscaled 1080p, as opposed to native 1080p.

But that's all future talk. For now, you can download the new DDD scenes, the rest of 2.8, and more from our Cutscene Archive. Big ups to @libregkd for his continual support on keeping it organized and up to date.

Hello again! As promised, here are the scenes from Kingdom Hearts χ Back Cover, with no subtitles, and virtually no stuttering, hooray! It was a tedious editing process but I think it was well worth it.

And one more thing: we now have all the Boss Battles and scripted enemy encounters from Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth by Sleep - A Fragmentary Passage -, to go along with the cutscenes we added two weeks back.

I'm nearly finished with my Dream Drop Distance HD playthrough, so those scenes will be up relatively soon.

Thanks to @libregkd for getting everything up and running on our cutscene archive.
