March 14 2013 is when Japan will see the much awaited and hugely anticipated Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix. During the recent Jump Festa event in Japan, Square Enix debuted the snazzy trailer below with enhanced and cleaned up graphics from both Kingdom Hearts Final Mix and Kingdom Hearts Re: Chain of Memories for the PS3.
Kingdom Hearts has now been rejigged to play a lot more like Kingdom Hearts II, also incorporating a KHIII style of camera with new special actions assigned to Triangle.

We recently mentioned that Square Enix will be showing their new title, Gyrozetter for the Nintendo 3DS, at the upcoming Jump Festa but just what is this new game with the strange name about?
Gyrozetter: Wings of the Albatross is a game revolving around a television series which also spawned an arcade game. You drive around the in-game world map occasionally coming across enemies you need to defeat to proceed. It’s at that point that you actually transform into a mech robot in order to undertake the battle.
Using the Active Gear Battle System, you’re able to obtain pickups to use, such as the Lightning Slash and the Fire Punch, which are put into use by touching the bottom screen on the 3DS.
There also appears to be a garage used for storing your vehicles, maybe that’s where you’re able to customise your cars?
The game is due for release in Japan in Spring 2013.
Another games showcase is almost upon Tokyo to be held at the same venue as the Tokyo Game Show, Makuhari Messe. That showcase is the annual Jump Festa which will also be seeing an influx of games from prolific developer, Square Enix.
In fact, SE will be having more playable games than what they showed at this year’s TGS. So far on the roster we have Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix, Gyrozetter, Dragon Quest VII. Attendees will also be able to see videos of Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII and Dragon Quest X.
Gyrozetter is a new game that SE will be showing off for the Nintendo 3DS, the full title is Gyrozetter: Wings of the Albatross. Jump Festa will be held on December 22nd and 23rd.
Another piece of media to come out of the recent Jump Festa in Japan is some new gameplay from Square Enix and Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance for the Nintendo 3DS. Thanks to My Nintendo News for the hook up! Still no release date which is shattering but at least it is coming to the West. Japan gets it in March 2012. It’s looking like being one of the more amazing games for Nintendo’s 3D handheld.
Jump Festa produced some amazing looking titles and one of those would definitely have to be Samurai & Dragons for the PS Vita. Not much is known but it appears to be a hack and slash dungeon style of gameplay which boasts some very detailed graphics. Check out the trailer below.
Just announced at the Jump Festa event in Japan is that Kingdom Hearts 3D for the 3DS will have a Tron Legacy world added. Fans will recall that Kingdom Hearts 2 also featured a world based around the Tron movie called Space Paranoids. In KH II, Sora teamed up with Tron, however no details as yet to who will be added to the 3DS version.
