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

Not much is known about it yet. The platform is likely PlayStation 3 as was the case for 1.5 HD Remix. We will update this article once more info appears.

Update: As announced on the official PlayStation blog, it is coming exclusively to PlayStation 3 in 2014. It will contain the following games.

  • Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix — previously on PS2 and exclusive to Japan
  • Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep Final Mix — previously on PSP and exclusive to Japan
  • Kingdom Hearts Re:coded (HD remastered cinematics)

You can see the official announcement trailer below.

    What about Dream Drop Distance? The game is way more important to the story than re:coded

    • Considering it was released last year for 3DS. I doubt if we are getting it as HD remaster anytime soon. Maybe, it will be released alongside KH 3 or perhaps they will remaster the cutscenes and put it in KH 3 as explaining Backstory?

    • DDD just came out, they’ll probably re-cap it in KH3.
