The venerable Kingdom Hearts II and Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep may receive HD remasters, if the end credits of Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX are any indication.
Images and a video of the collection's credits (it's not clear which game's credits, in particular) have surfaced online, and strongly hint that other series installments could be remastered in HD soon. Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX includes Kingdom Hearts Final Mix, Re:Chain of Memories, and the cutscenes from 358/2 Days, but the image and video below lend credence to a follow-up collection (presumably, Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX) that includes Kingdom Hearts II, Birth by Sleep, and the cutscenes from Re:Coded.
Character designer Tetsuya Nomura has hinted that more HD remakes of Kingdom Hearts games could follow HD 1.5 ReMIX. We'll update you as this story unfolds; for now, drop a comment below and let us know if you'd like to see Kingdom Hearts II and its brethren recast in HD with trophy support.

I will get these instantly when they come out. Guaranteed sale from me. Is that enough to make them make them all? hehe
I never had the opportunity of playing chain of memories, 358/2 days, coded or Birth by Sleep (except for on a really dodgy rom copy). I'd love the get my hands on them for HD play.

Wow... I am shocked... lol Seriously though, just import this, don't bother waiting 6 months for a western release when the Japanese version comes with both English dub/subs as well as the Japanese.

Its about consistancy, at least for me. I like to have all my games covers be pretty much the same.

@2 Does the Japanese version really include the English dub? If so, I might buy both.

I wonder how unrealistic it is to wish that they'd literally just release the collections at the same time instead of making us wait. I mean the games are already done, and its been years since they've done anything major anyway. Why not? My respect for any company would skyrocket if it were able to release its quality products in a very timely manner from their announcement of it. Square is the worst offender when it comes to this.

As much as I'd like to nab this on launch day, I'll hold off. I'll play the smart hand and wait for the complete collection that will undoubtedly release-besides I have to set aside a few bucks for a PS4
