Definitely one that I was hoping would make it over here but had kinda given up on. Now just have to keep my fingers crossed for a PAL release.

so if it hits the US in december, we can expect it in 12 months right?
Quite enjoyed the GBA game, found some of the new characters in it quite likeable. Be interested to hear them in english.

I am mad about Kingdom Hearts.
Though I haven't played Chain Of Memories, unfortunately.
Though, now I have a Ps2 version, I'd gladly play it.

Looking forward to it.

Square Enix,

it's been two YEARS since Kingdom Hearts: RE: Chain of Memories was realesed in America. Why leave The PAL network out of it? Surely there is enough demand for this game for PAL users that you can justify realesing it. The GameBoy Advance version of it didn't have the capacity to make this game great, the PlayStation2 does, as you have proved with the games you have realesed onto it. Because we didn't get this game it has lead to enormous plot holes that makes the magnificent storyline lacking depth.
We may not have as many people, or as much demard, but we ARE Kingdom Hearts fans too.

(yes, I have written this in letter form because it is my hope that one day, this will go to the American branch of Square Enix and help bring Kingdom Hearts: RE: Chain of memories to PAL users)

I have one of the other Kingdom Hearts games on my DS, so I'm looking forward to this. Well, sort-of. The other game i have is.. 'tis okay. Too bad i dont have a PS2.

I played this when it came out in America. It's okay but it's not great at all. It's very repetitive and not all that fun (at least to me).

That, and that its a remake AND that it's going back to an older story mean it's less likely to sell in a region where RPGs already sell badly.
