Earlier, we reported that Tetsuya Nomura will make a new announcement related to Kingdom Hearts at D23 Expo Japan. It seems like that the announcement was for Kingdom Hearts 2.5 HD remix as most of us suspected.
Kingdom Hearts 2.5 HD remix will contain Kingdom Hearts 2 and Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep in remastered HD graphics. Additionally,it will also have Kingdom Hearts Re:Coded cutscenes in remastered HD. This is the same as Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD, which got Kingdom Hearts 1 and Kingdom Hearts Chain of Memories in remastered HD along with remasted cutscenes of Kingom Hearts 358/2 days.
This news was tweeted by twittter user Aibo
