I just saw an update on the Japanese release of 'Kingdom Hearts: Final Mix'. Originally, Squaresoft stated how there wouldn't be any new features added to the Japanese version that weren't in the American version. Well... they lied. They lied BIG time.

Here's the link to the Picture Gallery. http://mediaviewer.ign.com/ignMediaPage.jsp?channel_id=70&article_id=378221&adtag=network%3Dign%26site%3Dps2viewer%26pagetype% 3Darticle&page_title=Kingdom+Hearts+Final+Mix+Images

Check out the rest for yourself.

I'm very happy to see they extended the story between the two guys... but why not have waited a few months and added it to the American Version too?!? What are your thoughts?

11-21-2002, 06:54 PM
AAAHHHH!!!! I downloaded a clip of that....it pissed me off since it wasnt complete...but damn they should of waited...I so want that in the US version but to late now :(

I just hope that Final Mix is like FFX International and includes both the Japanese and English voices/text with the additional features. Then we can just import it and not have to storm Square's offices with torches and pitchforks. ^_^

Lets hope...but just in case I'm getting my sporks ready :thumbsup: ....yeah....

How'd they get wings....?
*in la-la land*
I just finished the game!! Bastards! Oh, well, I can buy the next copy cause the original Kh is my bro's game! MUHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

*jaw drops


my..my god

the excitement has paralyzed me

you downloaded a clip of Seph and Cloud FIghting?

11-22-2002, 06:01 PM
Yeah I saw that. It looks awesome.

The "Unknown" guy they added looks a hell of a lot like who was supposedly Riku in the KH2 clip... I wonder who it really is... he looks all Darth Vader, LOL.

11-24-2002, 01:20 PM
The KH2 clip thing really confused me..it looked like there were two Rikus..it was..strange. And I didn't understand why Riku (er..the one on the roof) was wearing a blindfold..or what looked like one.. I can't wait 'til KH2 =^^=

11-24-2002, 02:53 PM
Kingdom Hearts 2 would be very cool if instead or revolving around Disney Worlds, it revolved aroun FF world...ok yes i am looking for more reasons to see more Sephiroth.

11-24-2002, 03:25 PM
I'm not surprised by this at all. Square is gaining a VERY notrious history of screwing over the US market when it comes to their big Games in the PS2 Generation. Final Fantasy X was a big example of this when they fleshed out the ending much more. And now this, adds to the trend. And guess what, our compratriots in Europe will most likely get this version (unless it has already come out), like with Final Fantasy X.

This is why I will not give Square USA a fricken dime, I'm willing to get a Japanese PS2 and buy the real FINAL versions that were released. That's how much it means to me to get the best versions availble.

11-24-2002, 06:27 PM
I totally agree with Studmaster on that one. But seriously, who didn't see that Sephiroth/Cloud showdown coming? It was obvious they were gonna do it sometime down the road after the ending to FF7.

Too bad we'll NEVER see those final versions. But then again, I don't really give a fuck about FFX: International. After all, FFX was bad on its own. And yes, FFX-2 is gonna suck as well. I definitely hope we don't get that game.

11-26-2002, 12:48 AM
I'm not one to usually complain about Squaresoft, but they already screwed US KH over just by allowing that worthless pile o shlt to voice Seph. Erg...my wrath shall never be appealed on that matter. Obviously someone who had no idea on Sephi's true nature and deep spiritual meaning to many dedicated devotees when they let just -any- random unfortunately-famous guy wander up and get to be in a video game as a sort of perk. Oh well. If they've finished it to their satisifaction finally, I'm getting the import and I hope they actually let Shin-ichirou Miki or at least some other worthy voice actor be Seph.

11-26-2002, 04:30 AM
Yui: lmao, I totally agree, but at least they tried to drown him out with distortions and reverb, rt? But, I guess Disney's gotta spoon feed some of its spawn still...

11-26-2002, 06:00 PM
i haven't heard sephs voice yet, anyone got a sound clip?

Has anyone actually Beat Sephiroth?
*is working on him*
but yea. . it might be in the lil movie thingy when you beat Sephiroth. . . like in a victory Cinema. . ^_^

11-26-2002, 07:03 PM
I've only known 2 ppl who have actually beaten Sephy, it took them a good while to do it.

Lord Masamune
11-26-2002, 07:04 PM
Naw, unfortunately... I beat Sephiroth a few weeks ago, and you don't get the showdown displayed in the KH Final Mix Screen shots. I suggest lvl 82+ and the Ultima Weapon to take him out. ^_^

So, unfortunately, this Cloud/Sephiroth showdown will only occur in the japanese KH Final Mix. ;_;

11-26-2002, 07:20 PM
Eeee...he's so hard... My friend is still at a sorta-low level (I forgot, actually..) and she, like, got at least 30 attacks through Sephiroth's blocks, and he still had full HP..or what looked like full HP...

Kamui Motoaki
11-26-2002, 07:20 PM
aww man. .
cause yea. . i'm closing into level 80 and i'm working on that ultima weapon thing but yea. . .thats pretty crucial that you beat him. . .*appluades*. . cause after taking two life bars. . my @ss is grass. . . *falls over*

11-26-2002, 07:27 PM
How do you get the Ultima Weapon?

Lord Masamune
11-26-2002, 07:27 PM
lol, I know just how that feels... the first time I fought him, I was soo nervous... until he killed me 2.3 seconds into the fight... I haven't laughed so hard in a long time!

Yeah, he actually get's a bit easier once he hits his Yellow Life bar, strangely enough... though the challenge is getting there in the first place. *_*

Tifa: You have to create it in the Mog's Shop above the Accessory Store in Traverse Town. To unlock it's recipe, you need to create every other item before it. Hope that helps!

11-26-2002, 07:31 PM
Fanks. Actually, I don't have the game, but my friend does, and I don't know if she knows how to get it...she hasn't mentioned anything about it, but that should help her beating Sephi a lot =^^=

LOL dude, I beat Sephiroth in like 5 mins @___@ And I don't mean to sound like I'm bragging cuz I'm not...I was just disappointed because I wanted it to be harder =\ I didn't even have Sora's Ultimate Weapon forged at that point of the game when I beat all the extra bosses >_<

Maannnn... I might just import Final Mix because I adore KH. but I dunno... $250 for a jPS2 and then add another $50 for a game? @__@ so much money...money I don't have ;_;

LOL Rene your game sounds so easy while I had a lot of trouble when I played XP

lol, it's nothing worth getting upset about! ^_^

It's kind of soft, kind of high-pitched, and altered with soooo much reverb and processing that it's almost respectable. I still think Billy Zane should have done Sephiroth... hehe

11-27-2002, 10:25 PM
i don't care...someone most have a soundclip

11-28-2002, 07:56 PM
There are some respectable sound clips on KaZaa.

11-29-2002, 01:26 PM
I beat Sephy at level 86 ^__^ Man, when he showed up with that expression of: "Yeah right, punk" and that orchestra playing One Winged Angel...I almost died from the coolness^_^

But at level 86 I was smirking right back: "Eat Keyblade, mofo!"

I'm confused by "Final Mix". Is it an excusively Japanese version of Kingdom Hearts? I might just have to shell out the 300+ to be able to see that battle between Cloud and Sephy...and go sword to sword with Riku in a trench coat^__^

11-30-2002, 01:57 AM
i couldn'y find any sound clips on Kazaa

Try looking for video capture of the battle. I found some good quality ones that display his voice pretty clearly, if you turn the volume up. ^_^

12-07-2002, 01:00 PM
(I know I'm bringing back an old Topic)

But is anyone else disturbed that the voice of Sephiroth in the US Version is Lance Bass (of NSYNC)?

And is anyone else disturbed by any of the other voices chosen for the characters in the game?

12-07-2002, 05:07 PM
I wasn't really dissapointed with Sephy's voice, because you *can't hear it*. There's so much going on in that battle that he might as well be mute. And after you beat him!? No cinema? No scene!? Just him leaving? And then, you don't even get his nice intro when you fight him again!

Oh, and as long as we're all bragging --

I just sold KH to a friend because I beat every extra boss, found all the dalmations, got all of the weapons ... and my reward was that fantastic and completely mysterious ending cinema. Wow.


Ending Cinema Double Key Blades = Sweet!

I can't wait till a capture of that ends up on Kazaa.

::Stamps foot:: no no no! i did not beat this freaking game, find all of the secrets and do everything in this game short of finding the ultima weapon to have them release another version with more in it! they shall suffer my wrath.

12-07-2002, 05:52 PM
the secret ending is on Kazaa right now!

12-07-2002, 06:34 PM
I'm mad. I have never played KH. It probably will be awhile before I do play it. I wanna hear sephy's voice!
That is kinda disturbing that the one doing his voice is Lance Bass.....

12-08-2002, 03:34 AM
>the secret ending is on Kazaa right now!

Thanks so much! I'll go get it right now. ^__^


12-08-2002, 03:49 AM
no prob

yeah i hate that sephs voice in lance bass. but i don't care, at least sephs in KH
