  1. I'm complaining because this is just lazy for the company. Literally zero effort put into this. Yes, compilations do happen but for more valid reasons. We're not celebrating anything here, KH3 didn't win GOTY or anything, it's just an extra money grabber for no reason, which is why I called this marketing at its rawest, dullest and most shameless. Companies really shouldn't be able to get away with doing things like this... I'm also not looking for a final package, I'm just looking for value. A final package would only be valuable if, as the poster after me said, gave something extra like a new console experience or a soundtrack. Yes, I am aware this bundle is probably catered to newcomers, but as I said, they didn't even include Re Mind if they wanted a complete collection for convenience / ease of access nor did they release it at the same time as Re Mind so it didn't help anyone get Re Mind. It's also not like KH has been out of anyone's minds recently and been forgotten to the point it needs a revival. Added to all the Xmas and Black Friday deals for these games (which basically added up to 49.99 usd). So there is really very limited value for anyone to buy this "almost complete" bundle. It also cheapens the Kingdom Hearts brand imo and is kinda disrespectful to the fans that bought the game on Day 1.
  2. I honestly think this release is marketing at its rawest, dullest and most shameless... Can they get anymore "creative"...? It's completely unnecessary, especially at this point when Re Mind is still fresh in everyone's minds - the release date for this is not even 2 months after Re Mind's release ... Who is this bundle even targeting?? And why in March? Almost like SE's way of filling in what would've been FF7R craze for a mere few weeks (since it's now being released in April) just to compete with ... Animal Crossing? P5R? lol... Why not save this all-in-one release until the full release announcement of the PS5 and just put out a PS5 version with some extra enhancements? They'd probably also capture some of the crowd that already owns all the games on PS4 again. Right now, aside from the fancy cover slip (even though it's just old art again), there is literally no reason for people who own the games on PS4 to double dip (or triple / quadruple dip for that matter). And yeah, can't believe they couldn't bother to even include the DLC in this all-in-one package. They should've actually released this at the same time as KH3's release for a physical edition like they did in Japan. If they're capturing newcomers to the series, they also missed the mark. They should've released this at the exact same time as Re Mind's release to maximize sales. What better time to join the series than when they're given new content as a reason to catch up? Newcomers would've found it daunting too to have to get multiple games all over the place just to play the DLC - you can't even play the DLC without having the KH3 base game... I am hoping though they decide to release at least 1.5 and 2.5 for the Switch, with actually playable 358/2 Days and Recoded (since those came out on the Nintendo DS). With rumours of a higher powered Switch coming in the future (maybe next year), I hope that'll make it possible to port 2.8 and 3 to the Switch as well.
  3. Just to clarify if anyone reads this, the North American preorder theme for the Re Mind DLC looks to be exactly the same as the bonus theme that came with the Limited Edition Kingdom Hearts III PS4 Slim exclusive to Japan. https://www.sony.jp/playstation/store/special/ps4/kingdomhearts3/?s_tc=st_co_ext_kd/ So looks like Japan technically got this already ... but the theme is still beautiful. Just sucks we don't also get the new Tetsuya Nomura artwork... I hope they release all the themes as separate buys later down the road, just like they put all the preorder Keyblades on the store a couple months later after the game's initial release back in January.
  4. Has the Square Enix Japan e-Store changed their payment policy to accept foreign credit cards outside of Japan? Not to dash anyone's hopes right away, but unless you own a Japanese credit card or know someone who does, you'd probably have to use a proxy service just to purchase on the site, but whether or not the proxy service is also willing to help you enter the prize raffle is a whole other issue. Here's hoping they bring something like this to the Square Enix e-Stores outside of Japan...
  5. I seriously hope this is not a remake or remaster... We've honestly had enough of those... time to keep moving forward and either finish explaining the origin stories of the remaining Org members that we've still no clue of their backgrounds (i.e. Luxord and Demyx) and/or keep going with KH4 please...
  6. I wonder what platform it's gonna be on... While I'm hoping they decide to keep it on the PS line, I'd be down to play KH on the Switch (so I'm hoping those rumours are true about porting KH1.5+2.5 onto the Switch).
  7. Yeah i was so pissed off the JP Sony Store didnt take foreign credit cards... I have a forwarding address and even set up an account but the payment part really is a pain since theres no way for foreigners to get around that at all, even legitimately. I'd pay for a gift card and buy it that way if I could tbh but that doesn't seem to be an option either... Proxies will definitely not get you that discount. While I understand the whole fraud issue with fake foreign cards, they should offer ways that allow safe passage of foreign cards like a Paypal or something, though I don't think Paypal is widely used at all in Japan. In terms of nin-nin-game, I can vouch for that and say I've purchased the JP Bravely Second CE from them and it came in great condition and in a timely manner.
  8. This rendition of Dearly Beloved is also attached to the original PS4 theme from the Integrum Masterpiece exclusive to Japan's Square Enix e-Store.
  9. That, my friend, is nothing. Shipping to Canada is limited to only the Priority shipping method and is priced at $55.99. All I wanted was the calendar... like what

May want to focus on album tracks that are prominent throughout the series, like Dearly Beloved? Also pages for insert songs like the TWEWY songs in KH3D need to be made.
  13. I'll also keep a running list of all the official KH soundtracks released by Square Enix here: (Note that OSTs without a Status have not been started yet) Main Game Soundtracks KINGDOM HEARTS Original Soundtrack (Status: Complete) KINGDOM HEARTS -FINAL MIX- Additional Tracks (Status: Complete) KINGDOM HEARTS II Original Soundtrack (Status: Incomplete; fields need to be filled) KINGDOM HEARTS Original Soundtrack COMPLETE KINGDOM HEARTS Birth by Sleep & 358/2 Days Original Soundtrack (Status: Incomplete; fields need to be filled) KINGDOM HEARTS 3D: Dream Drop Distance Original Soundtrack (Status: Complete) KINGDOM HEARTS -HD 1.5 ReMIX- Original Soundtrack KINGDOM HEARTS -HD 2.5 ReMIX- Original Soundtrack KINGDOM HEARTS -HD 1.5 & 2.5 ReMIX- Original Soundtrack BOX Compilations KINGDOM HEARTS 10th Anniversary FAN SELECTION -Melodies & Memories- KINGDOM HEARTS MUSIC SELECTION (from KINGDOM HEARTS COLLECTORS PACK HD 1.5+2.5 ReMIX) Rearrangement Albums Piano Collections KINGDOM HEARTS Piano Collections KINGDOM HEARTS FIELD & BATTLE KINGDOM HEARTS TRIBUTE ALBUM (Status: Complete) KINGDOM HEARTS Orchestra -World Tour- Album KINGDOM HEARTS Concert -First Breath- Album

Fields: The following fields shall be used when filling out information in regards to English-language songs (Refer to KH3D OST for exact layout): Description (i.e. what game(s) is the soundtrack for, when was it first released, main composers, theme songs included (if applicable). Also might want to note differences or unique qualities of box sets, compilations and rearrangement albums to explain what those are) Release Date (Country: YYYY.MM.DD) Catalog Number (i.e. Japan: SQEX-10304~6) Price (i.e. Japan: 3800 JPY or USA: 12 USD) Publisher (i.e. Japan: Square Enix (distributed by Sony Music Distribution)) Games Covered (bullet list of games that the music on the soundtrack covers; exclude the fact that the theme songs cover more than one game, as that will skew the list - only focus on what game 90% of the tracks cover) Tracklist (including Total # of Discs, Total Length, and Total # of Tracks, and then a breakdown per disc on Length and # of Tracks) Table format for tracklisting x+1 rows where x is the number of tracks on the entire soundtrack (the +1 is for the heading row) 5 columns Categories for heading row: Disc-Track (i.e. if it's Disc 1 Track 1, it'll display as 1-01) Title (name of track) Length Artist (who performed in the song) Composer (who composed it) NOTE: For exact format styling, I would recommend creating the table first, and then copying and pasting content from a table on another complete OST page. This is to ensure you have enough rows, as you cannot edit the number of rows retroactively in the table once it has been made! Trivia [OPTIONAL] (only if there's any interesting info on the release; only one I can think of is the printing error on the 1.5+2.5 BOX where one track was released in mono mix and needed a separate disc to be sent with the stereo mix) External Links (bullet list of official soundtrack websites, artist comments, etc.) Once all fields are input, be sure to upload the album cover artwork as well! Completion status: Still have many soundtracks to input into the system. As of 2019.01.24, only 4 of 9 of the main game OSTs have been entered. Please refer to Post #2 in this thread for complete running list of official OSTs to be entered into the database and the status of each in the database.
