March 28, 2008, Square Haven has ceased updates indefinitely. Don't despair, however; the work started here more than ten years ago continues at Videogam.in.

Kingdom HeartsThe first day of this year's Tokyo Game Show saw the official announcement of three new Kingdom Hearts titles: Kingdom Hearts: 358/2 Days, Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep, and Kingdom Hearts: Coded will appear on the DS, PSP, and mobile platform respectively. No release dates have been announced for any of the titles yet.

Kingdom Hearts: 358/2 Days (Nintendo DS)

Set during the events of Kingdom Hearts II, 358/2 Days will center around Roxas and Axel of Organization XIII. The game will feature a four-player cooperative mode and also incorperate a much darker mood than previous Kingdom Hearts titles.

Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep (Sony PSP)

Birth by Sleep takes place before the events of Kingdom Hearts and will tell the story of previous keyblade masters. The main character is reported to be Thera and will also deal with the history of Xehanort. The game is being developed by the Crisis Core - Final Fantasy VII team.

Kingdom Hearts: Coded (Mobile)

The timeline for Coded is unclear at the moment, but looks to take place during the first Kingdom Hearts title. Sora may return as the main character and the gameplay appears to be a basic dungeon crawler.

Oh man this looks awesome. Can't wait. The screens that I saw from several sites look so cool. I'm interested about the story of the three games though. I read somewhere that the three titles are all connected to the "Kingdom Hearts 3". I apologize to Nomura for using the number 3 in the title. lol

what? theres more games of kh?

Anyone got an inkling of a clue on how to pronounce "358/2"?
staff
pixel
I believe it's "358 over 2 days."
pixel
I'm not so sure as to what to think about it really. I mean, how many people went out and bought a DS to play Kingdom Hearts Chain of Memories?
Well, I don't know the exact numbers, but I'm sure it sold so much better on the PS2 than on the DS.

Birth By Sleep, and the 358/2 days game sounds interesting, but the whole mobile version of a KH games sounds like it's going to be a huge dissapointment.

Dissapointment if you dont live in Japan. Mobile gaming is HUGE over there.
pixel
That's true. G4 said that coded was probably gonna stay in japan just for that same reason.
staff
pixel
Not necessarily. We get mobile releases over here, too. Look no further than Destiny's Child Groove!!!
pixel
Haha, nice on Matt.

Well, in that case, I guess it will do rather well. As long as it stays in Japan. I personally don't want to play it.
pixel
well not to get off topic or anything but wasn't crisis core originally supposed to be mobile? idk but yea theres gonna be a kh on mobile? that sounds retarded i never liked cell phone games and never will
staff
pixel
You're thinking of Before Crisis, Retard.
pixel
OMG, that's just so friggin' awesome. Can't wait to see them all.

Witchy likes Brave Fencer Musashi. That's awesome in my book.
pixel

Yeah, she is ape fucking shit over BFM. It must be nice to be so ingenuous.
pixel
Never played Musashi. But a lot of my friends have that game. I've always wanted to play it, but it just looked like something I couldn't get into.
pixel
uhhh i think i read that somewhere in a mag my sis has but i'm still not sure how bout bushido blade 2 that game is pretty sweet
staff
pixel
Yeah, Bushido Blade is awesome. If it was 1998. It's way to dated to be enjoyable now, I think.
staff
pixel
Wait! Why are we talking about this? We should be talking about KH, which means I'm leaving this place.
pixel
Well, does anyone think that after a period of time, they'll take all three of these titles and transition them to the PS2?
staff
pixel
Yes! Spoiler Warning! Highlight to read: [no]
pixel
lol, couldn't hurt to ask.
But seriously why not? Espically the 358/2 days title.
I know for a fact that Nomura has to be tired of working with childish disney characters, because hell.......all of us are tired of that! So, why not take that title and throw in on PS2, or maybe PS3?

Although, in a lot of ways, KH just wouldn't be the same without the canon disney characters.

I could see them potentially porting 358/2 Days if it fails to perform, but given that SE has proved that it can move PSPs with Crisis Core, I think they'll be just fine leaving it on there. Also, Crisis Core has a bunch of gameplay engineered specifically for handheld gaming as I'm sure 358/2 Jesus What a Bitch It Is To Type That Days will.

Also, you know nothing for a fact. Nomura is probably having the time of his life working with Disney to do absolute fuck all and makes shit-tons of money. He might even be making a cut off the sales since his name is so directly involved (although given that this is Japan, maybe not).

Guess I'll be getting the PSP version since its like one of the only games worth getting for the system :p
