      They did such a great job with the updated soundtrack. It all sounds more lively than it did before. I really hope they do the same with 2.5

      I still didn't heard it, there is any videos comparing?

      Here's a playlist of the original KH:

      And here's what I could find of 1.5 (No playlist yet, so I'll just link each video):


      I think it's most easily noticeable with Olympus Colosseum, where they replaced some instruments with flutes

      They gotta release a soundtrack for this! "Having a wild time" has an amazing flute!

      Really loved how they talked about how they went about recording the battle themes for 1.5. They're right. Orchestral music's greatest weakness is the fact that it lacks punch. You can make everything sound prettier, fuller, and louder...but the instruments themselves aren't known for their aggressiveness. Different playing techniques must be used. Of course...that could have all been solved if they just suck in guitars. But Shimomura isn't Ishimoto. XD Her stuff isn't known for even incorporating synth guitars-Oh wait. I'd still like to see some guitar stuff in Kingdom Hearts though. For fast-paced, tense, and exciting battle themes, you really can't beat the guitar as the go-to instrument for that kind of stuff.

      Gotta say that's very kinda of them to go as far as to updating the soundtrack.
      Kinda makes you think that Square is doing this for the fans!

      This is something I never would have expected, still, I'm glad they did it.
      The music in KH was always fantastic, and it didn't really warrant a remake, though the fact that they did shows how much they care about the series, much appreciated.
