I am wondering what if this doesn't get a international release date? If I import the game from Japan, will I be able to change te game's voice and the subtitles in English or would they both be in Japanese?

If I heard correctly, you will be able to switch between Japanese and English voices. 

Nice! :D This is going to be amazing!

Has that actually been confirmed, or is it just wishful thinking on the fans' part? All I keep hearing is "English-dubbed cutscenes use Japanese voices instead"

This was quoted from the preorder page.

It has "tropy support"? I love tropys.

Please keep in mind that the store that put up the pre-order page may have made a typo
I am so psyched

It better be true.  I'll be pretty mad if it isn't

As DChiuch just said, it may be a mistake. But yeah, switching between Japanese and English voices would be cool.

Well if you think about they already have the voices for the English,so it would be a waste not to.

Then again, I don't think Kingdom Hearts was surround sound equipped. They would have to do re-voicing. 

Next remastered title?

Can you say 2.5 HD Remix?

This is surprising? Nomura already said (in his own way) that we're going to get 2.5 sooner or later (probably early '14).

PRAYSE NOMURA!! WE CAN SKIP THE CUTSCENES!!!!

Yep and it says in secret message of ddd.
Prepare for the awakening of the next number.

Wait, that last note confused me:

 

"Also, the inclusion of Aerith, Leon, various Disney Characters and their stages etc. has been revealed."

 

What do they mean on this???

But, uh... that is something that was already clear...

Exactly! That's what confused me! I mean you don't need to mention the inclusions of the NPCs if we all know they will already be there.

It has been a long but was it possible to fight against Aerith and co in the colosseum in KH 1?

Bah, if ya would understand proper japanese then you could get over the japanese annotations and menu. What use had english subs ant voices back then anyway?

Not Aerith. Yuffie, Cloud and Squall would fight you but not Aerith.

I know because I was introduced to Final Fantasy through Kingdom Hearts, and I was surprised when I found out Aerith and Cid could actually fight.
