Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep is being released to the rest of the world on September 7th in NA, and September 10th in Europe. This PSP game has already been released in Japan by Square Enix since January, but now will be available to the rest of us. Though this game is still a prequel of a prequel of a prequel etc… Personally I don’t know how they are going to keep managing to release prequels to an already convoluted storyline. What I’m anticipating is when they finally release information on a Kingdom Hearts 3.
An excerpt from Square Enix’s press release:
A prequel to the mega-hit series, this pivotal installment takes players back to the beginnings of the Kingdom Hearts saga, long before Sora was chosen by his Keyblade. Players will explore iconic Disney worlds in a unique gaming experience that unfolds through the perspectives of three different main characters: Terra, Ventus and Aqua. Their journeys will take them through Sleeping Beauty’s Enchanted Dominion, the Dwarf Woodlands from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and Deep Space from Lilo & Stitch. Additionally, Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep includes four all-new multiplayer modes that allow players to enjoy the action with their friends.
Seems relatively interesting with the two other new main characters, however Ventus is somebody we already know from KH2 we learn more about his back story as well as two of his companions Terra and Aqua. However a few of the areas in which they are mentioning have already been visited in the many other Kingdom Hearts games, we shall see how it all turns out on September 7th.
