Pre-Order Bonus

KH1.5 Artbook
The Pre-Order Bonus
ChainoffireAdded by Chainoffire

Pre-Ordering the game came with a Limited Edition Artbook at launch. The Artbook wasn't a separate book from the actual game box, and included the disc at the back of the book.  The Artbook contains early sketches, character renders, and final pieces of artwork from Tetsuya Nomura.[5] On July 15, another bonus was announced via the Kingdom Hearts Facebook page.  

By pre-ordering the game, American consumers would automatically receive an exclusive dynamic theme for the Playstation 3 as it was gifted by the NA division of Square Enix (neither European, Asian or Austrailian customers recieved the dynamic theme).

Foreword

A "secret" message from Tetsuya Nomura was also included as a foreword in the book.  It read:

Over 10 years have passed since we released the first KINGDOM HEARTS game.  My only regret was never releasing KINGDOM HEARTS FINAL MIX overseas, so I am very pleased to now give fans everywhere a chance to play it, this time in its best format - full High-Definition.

Revisiting the first game, I don't think it feels like a 10 year-old game, despite some unrefined elements.  Everything was a new experience for me back then.  It was extremely challenging to create a completely never gae system and series.  However, I think KINGDOM HEARTS FINAL MIX still feels like a new game because the passion of our creative efforts are still felt in the game itself to this day. 

The KINGDOM HEARTS series would not have lasted this long without the incredible support from you, the fans.  In response to your passion towards the KINGDOM HEARTS series, I will continue to create something you can all enjoy playing for the next several decades.
