UPDATE 2: According to finalfantasy.net Editor-in-Chief Tony Garsow, Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days will not be playable in Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX. Instead, cutscenes from the game will be "HD-ified" and viewable in a Theater mode of sorts.
UPDATE: According to KH Ultimania, Square Enix has announced a Kingdom Hearts Facebook game at Tokyo Game Show. It seems that the version of Kingdom Hearts for PC mentioned below will actually be this new experience.
ORIGINAL: The official teaser website of the long-awaited, much-rumored, often-desired Kingdom Hearts HD remake has gone live.
The text on the website is entirely in Japanese, but the message is clear. "Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX" will include HD versions of Kingdom Hearts Final Mix, Kingdom Hearts RE: Chain of Memories, Kingdom Hearts: 358/2 Days, and (according to one Twitter user) a version of Kingdom Hearts compatible with PC browsers.
With this selection of games, it appears that Square Enix will be re-releasing the Kingdom Hearts saga in relatively chronological order. 358/2 Days did not release until after Kingdom Hearts II, but - like Chain of Memories - tells a story that falls between Kingdom Hearts 1 and 2. The absence of Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep, the earliest story in the series' chronology, is a monkey wrench in this theory, but you can be sure that other Kingdom Hearts games will appear in another HD collection down the line.
For now, Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX is only confirmed for Japan, but pigs will fly before Square Enix passes up the opportunity to grace North America and Europe with the same.
Are you excited to replay Kingdom Hearts and its sequels in glorious HD? Let us know in the comments below.

Hopefully this will reach north america and europe and all that good stuff. I was hoping for 2 and Birth by Sleep, but this will have to suffice. Hopefully 2.5(?) will have Kingdom Hearts 2 Final Mix, Birth by Sleep, and Dream Drop Distance.

This game includes two games I've never played, so I'd probably pick this up eventually.

I just exploded in my pants...
However this article is still very weirdly worded, I still really don't know what games or platforms are actually being done here, very confusing wording

Okay, i got it. KH1 Final Mix, KH Chain of Memories, and KH 358/2 Days are coming to PS3 in HD remakes with trophies.
There will also be a crappy Facebook game releasing soon. Kewl!
But the real question is, will there be an HD remake of Kingdom Hearts 2??

@Article "For now, Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX is only confirmed for Japan, but pigs will fly before Square Enix passes up the opportunity to grace North America and Europe with the same."
Actually I dont think the chances are as remote as you put it here. They did skimp on the final mixes. So nothing is set in stone. Though it's not likely it wouldn't come over here, until I see an announcement, I'll think nothing of it.

In my opinion, it should have been... Kingdom Hearts Final Mix, Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix and Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep.
I think if you're going to release an HD collection that it should include all of the games, or at least the [three] most important ones.

This is an easy way to snatch an extra 40 dollars (which I admit, I'm completely willing to spend). KH 1, is a definite must-buy attached to a spin-off. KH 2 is a definitely buy, that will likely be attached to Birth By Sleep. I just can't wait to hear that trophy noise when I get my Kingdom Hearts platinum :D Now for a DARK CLOUD COLLECTION C:
