I would assume the more people they get on that list of people interested in the Kingdom Hearts 2 Final Mix+ the more likely a North American release would happen if Square Enix isn't already planning it.

Quick! everyone spam them using false or other peoples' names!
jk, don't do that, why would you listen to a teen sitting in front of his computer on a forum listening to the KH soundtrack?

perhaps, if they get many people intrested, S-E NA might send a notice to S-E JP, saying something about how many here are intrested.
I'm pretty sure this game is coming here, they just want us to suffer, writhe and question so when they do announce it, it'll sell like hot cakes, or pancakes(why do they call 'em hotcakes?)
and I'm still convinced that the the live chat staff is a cult where everyone is named Neil.

edit: dogen already beat me w/ a comment about false names, darn me and my thinking out my posts and proofreading before posting.

Aha, I tried talking to him, we should keep on asking.

Wait one moment while you are being connected. You will be notified once you are connected with a SQUARE ENIX representative.
You have been connected to SER Neil.
SER Neil: Hello, :D!!, thank you for contacting the Square Enix Support Center. Just a few moments while I review your question, please.
SER Neil: There has not been any announcements of a Kingdom Hearts 2: Final Mix in North America.If you would like, I will add your name and e-mail to a list of people interested, so basically when/ if I hear of something official, I will alert you.
:D!! ?: Ah, that's what I thought.
:D!! ?: Do you get this question alot?
SER Neil: Yes, but it's no problem!
< Aha Awesome
SER Neil: But like I said, nothing has been announced.
:D!! ?: Awesome, no problem for you huh.
:D!! ?: I'll have my name on the list please.
:D!! ?: Thanks.
SER Neil: Well I would need an e-mail address.
:D!! ?: Oh, well that's ok then, i'm sure there's alot of names on the list regardless. < Can't blow my cover... From the first times I talked to him. XD
:D!! ?: Thanx, bye.

Another convo:

LoonyTic: oh, ok then. would you say that kingdom hearts 2 : final mix is one of the most popular games wanted?
SER Neil: Maybe since this unconfirmed "rumor" came out.
LoonyTic: oh ok
LoonyTic: unconfirmed rumour, don't you mean confirmed rumour

XD He got all confused and stuff and it ended up making him look dumb. =P

This is my chat transcript. I tryed to ask some(at least I believe) pretty tough questions. I thought he answered them very well but I couldn't tell towards the end if he getting pissed off or if he had (from his propective) a nice conversion. I also learned alot of interesting things. Here it is:

Wait one moment while you are being connected. You will be
notified once you are connected with a SQUARE ENIX representative.
All agents are currently busy. Please stand by.
You have been connected to SER Neil.

SER Neil: Hello, Benji, thank you for contacting the Square Enix Support Center. Just a few moments while I review your question, please.

SER Neil: There has not been any announcements of a Kingdom Hearts 2: Final Mix in North America.If you would like, I will add your name and e-mail to a list of people interested, so basically when/ if I hear of something official, I will alert you.

Benji Black: Yes, plaease add me to the list and I was also wondering if you had a rough estimate of how many people are on the list of people interested in the game?

SER Neil: Well, I can't release that number, but it's quite a few people.

SER Neil: Are there any other issues I can assist you with right now, Benji?

Benji Black: Oh, I understand. Well, I just have a few more questions. First, since Kingdom Hearts is a collaberation between Square Enix and Disney, how much would the decsion to bring the game to North America be Square Enix's decsion versus Disney's? Sorry I took so long I am a slow typist.

SER Neil: It would be more up to Square-Enix, and if it follows tradition as the first one, it might not come to the North American market.

Benji Black: Hmmm, interesting. Also, when I emailed Square Enix regarding this game they said that Square Enix Japan at that time had no plans to bring it to North America but that that didn't mean it would nessarily never happen. What I don't understand is is Square Enix Japan the one to decide whether a game comes to other regions? Shouldn't that be the job of Square Enix USA to decide whether a game comes to North America or not?

SER Neil: Well Benji, to be quite honest with you, it's alot more complicated then I'm able to explain to you.

Benji Black: In terms of what is required when you are trying to bring out a game? Like transilation of the game, marketing, preparing demos, etc?

SER Neil: Square-Enix Japan has many different reasons to hold back a title from other markets, but above all it's ultimately their decision.

Benji Black: Wow, very interesting. I can understand being that you are the American branch of a Japanese company. I ask these kinds of questions because I am considering going into the video game industry and it is interesting stuff to learn. I mean you personally might have noticed that some people have been writing you guys about the game because several notable gaming publications have been saying that the Kingdom Hearts 2 Final Mix+ is coming out in fall

Benji Black: and they want to know what is going on.

SER Neil: Well I honestly don't know what else to tell you Benji, you've asked me numerous times in different methods for basically the same answer.

SER Neil: We only know what is publically announced.

SER Neil: I really wish I could be of a better help.

SER Neil: But you will need to accept the fact that it may or may not come out in North America.

SER Neil: Until something is announced, we cannot comment further.

Benji Black: I can accept a fact if there was fact to accept I think what bothers most fans is that there is no stance on it. But, I can understand the position you guys are in.

SER Neil: All the "rumors" you hear are purely speculation, please understand.

SER Neil: Just be patient, and if there if an announcement, you will be getting an e-mail from me personally.

Benji Black: We don't take the rumors as gospel.

SER Neil: Some people do, you don't want to speak for everyone.

SER Neil: But I appreciate your understanding.

SER Neil: Are there any other issues I can assist you with right now, Benji?

Benji Black: Well, I appogize for them jumping the gun. Well, thank you for talking to me it was very enlighting and please do add my name to the list of people interested in the game. Thank you so much.

SER Neil: I would be happy to Benji, and stop back in anytime.

SER Neil: It was a pleasure.

SER Neil: I really wish I could give you more of the answers you were looking for.

SER Neil: Thank you for visiting our Square Enix Chat line, Benji!

Benji Black: Your welcome!

Thank you for visiting the SQUARE ENIX customer support chat, take care.

Tepidshark's comment: Basically the thing I took from this is that it is all up to Square Enix Japan. Square Enix USA and Disney aren't really involved in the descision. Also, it was interesting to learn that Square Enix USA only knows what has been announced and nothing beyond that. I hope you enjoyed this.

Well I thought he wasn't going to tell me things I didn't already know, but he did tell me about how some systems for these kinds of things work. Yeah, he did seem to be getting a little annoyed I wonder if it because so many people have been asking him personally about the Kingdom Hearts 2 Final Mix+. I don't think it is any sign at all, the guys at Square Enix USA seem to know just about as much as we the gamers know about game releases. Plus, I asked alot of tough questions. I would say to keep on going into chat sessions because if nothing else I think it maybe good to get on the list of people interested.

He probably has been getting that question alot since we discovered we could do this. Unless, what it is is that any male person you talk to is named Neil because they want to keep there real names secret and there is a different name they use for all the female people you talk to as well.

xD Just so you guys no, changing your name and going in again doesnt work. When you get in that chat, its tracked by the computer, not the username. In fact, they have logs of all their chats and those logs come up the next time you enter. xDDD

I believe it is interesting to point out that they were making a mailing list for this. They have not made a mailing list for another game before I believe.

So then I guess if you want to do it multiple times go to a library or something and do it on a bunch of different computers.

SER Neil: Not a problem, if you have any other questions come on back.
if you want to talk to them again, you can, but to get on the mailing list more than once is a different stroy if that's what you mean.

edit: I'm not sure school and/or public librries block the site, but my jiminy cricket would't let me sleep if I do anything "naughty", including using different names and email adresses to persueade SE to give us this game

I just talked to someone on the chat as well, and... now I'm telling my friends to go talk with someone as well. 8D;; I asked them to put me on their mailing list so that they could update me on anything about KH2FM+ coming outside of Japan. But, that's all I talked about on there. :\

...Okay, now I'm gonna be bad and pass this info around a little bit. xD;; *runs* Hey, the more people on that list, the better! O:
