    Yes! I will be first in line to buy this collection! I hope 2.5 Remix retains the same high quality as 1.5 in terms of performance and arrangement.

  2. I’m very excited as well! I wonder if they will include the un-rerecorded tracks as they did with FFXHD to fill out the space and for completeness.

  3. I know I might be a complete & utter blasphemer for saying this, but I really wish that the Kingdom Hearts soundtracks would come to iTunes at some point, specifically Australian iTunes. Because we always get short end of the stick in that regard.

    This is excellent. I was skeptical back when they remastered the music for 1.5, thinking it somewhat unnecessary, but this, when you consider KH2’s synth quality…man, it’s the complete opposite. It needs this upgrade badly. Can’t wait to hear what they do with He’s a Pirate and the Hollow Bastion theme.
