Rumour: Kingdom Hearts Series Getting A HD Makeover

Published

 on

Retaining one of the most rabid fan followings in gaming, this would be only logical. Of course, logic hasn’t exactly been Square-Enix’s forte as of late, and so we’re planting this firmly in the rumours section. What am I talking about? A high-definition compilation of the Disney/Final Fantasy mash-up series Kingdom Hearts. The news comes courtesy of a DualPixels source known only as Geno, who professes inside information that the Japanese publisher will announce it at E3 next week.

Supposedly known as either Kingdom Hearts: Remix or Kingdom Hearts: Remembrance, it will bring together the two PS2 original games, as well as the GBA’s Chain of Memories, the DS’s 358/2 Days and the PSP’s Birth By Sleep. In addition to the graphical update, it will add in extra sidequests and plot details to make them seem more cohesive. It will be available on the PS3, Vita and Wii-U.

While the existence of such a collection is feasible, given S-E previously expressing that they are looking into HD updates, I’m on the fence about this. I simply don’t see how the GBA/DS iterations are going to be able to be upscaled and made to look and play well, particularly on televisions with larger screens. Without those, I’d be more than happy to throw my inconsiderable weight into the believer’s camp, but as it stands, I’ll wait until the dust settles after E3.

RUMOR: Fable 4 Story, Gameplay Details Leak Ahead of E3

Published

Fable 4 will abandon its typical setting of Albion and firearm combat for a brand new, medieval-themed open-world, a possible leak suggests.

A video of the upcoming game has supposedly been viewed by reddit user LagSwag1 who quickly shared the information.

The screenshot below appears to show a brief story synopsis of a new world built upon the ashes of Albion and Fable 3’s Aurora. The two lands have been ‘reduced to fables’ by a mad king, who rebuilt the Spire and wished for an asteroid to strike the planet.

Now in a new era of a medieval-styled world spanning new continents and a Heroes Guild has survived behind a demon door. The leak also appears to describe specific old Fable links such as prophet Theresa and Jack of Blades. However, whether or not these links will be main features of gameplay or if they are alluded to as myths, history, or lore is unclear.

Fable 4 will feature first or third-person camera options, features in-depth character creator, incorporates multiplayer, and also strongly relies on time travel, perhaps as a mode of fast travel.

Though, again, not officially confirmed, the leak suggests the game will also benefit from using the Unreal Engine.

Forza Horizon developer Playground Games has taken over the mantel of producing the next Fable game, so how these leaked details may relate to the game remains to be seen. If the leak is accurate, fans can look forward to an update at Microsoft’s E3 press conference June 9.
