The new screenshots are taken from the Western release of the game, coming in a couple of months on Ps3: check them out at the end of this post.
Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix includes the first Kingdom Hearts game, released on Ps2 together with Kingdom Hearts: Chain Of Memories, the first spin-off of the series, originally released on Game Boy Advance and later remade on Ps2. Together with these two games, all the cutscenes of one of the DS entries of the series, Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days have also been included and upgraded.
Together with the obvious graphical enhancements, both games have received some light gameplay tweaks, introducing some elements that have appeared in later entries of the series, like Reaction Commands. The Kingdom Hearts version included is the Final Mix one which features a new secret boss, some new heartless enemies, a couple new keyblade weapons and a new difficulty level.
