BBS & BBS Final Mix Ultimate Hits editions announced in Japan


Sora96

Square Enix have announced that both Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep and Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep Final Mix will be re-released in Japan as Ultimate Hits editions. Both items have been added to the Square Enix e-STORE, with Birth by Sleep here and Birth by Sleep Final Mix here. Both cost ¥2,940 (approximately US$37.91) and release on December 6, 2012.

When Square Enix considers a game to be very successful and have sold enough copies, they reprint the game as an "Ultimate Hits" edition-- this is the exact same game with an altered cover art and new price. All Ultimate Hits titles can be seen here.

Wait, why both?

Especially if they have the same price...

 

Maybe someone likes the blue Floods better. /shot

 

That seems like a waste of resources. Why are they even selling BBS (regular) anymore? FM is everything BBS had, but better, unless I'm missing something.

Well, you CAN get extras by having a BBS save file, like the Rhythm Mixer Command Style

...

I guess

From the cover, looks like PSP. Just like the article said, the same game just with a different cover/artwork with a different price.

 

Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD Remix is for PS3 which is KH1 and KH Chains of Memories. To be released 2013 in Japan. No confirmation for release in the US.

They're releasing the Ultimate Hits of the normal BBS? It would make more sense to just release BBSFM Ultimate Hits because it has more content xD

So it's essentially a "Greatest Hits" or "Player's Choice" kind of thing where they put a new label on the cover, which makes copies WITHOUT the label sought after by collectors and generally more expensive than the reissue?

BBS HD Ultimate Hits Edition announced

 

And I just have a feeling that Square will announce an HD version of BBS at some point in the future.

This is pretty great. BBSFM is one of the few games I didn't get because of its absurd price tag. Everywhere I looked, it was typically over $70 for some reason. Was it short printed or something?

Yeah, that's about 30 Euros, a typical prize tag for re-releases. Order it from Fromjapan.co.jp and you save big bucks, cause it is only retail prize not sale prize. :)
