Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep announced for Australia

PSP News | The Keyblade is back in town.
Square Enix has today announced that the next iteration in the hugely successful Kingdom Hearts franchise, Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep, will be coming to Australia and New Zealand on 9 September 2010 exclusively for the PlayStation Portable.

Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep is set long before Sora was chosen to wield his Keyblade in the original Kingdom Hearts. It follows the story of Terra, Aqua and Ventus as they train and strive to prove that they also exhibit the 'Mark of Mastery' and the right to wield their own Keyblades. The three suddenly find themselves in the middle of a multi-world crisis when another Keyblade master, Xehanort, suddenly disappears.

The gameplay is similar to previous Kingdom Hearts games, where you are free to roam and battle in various worlds set in the Disney universe using a variety of Keyblades, abilities and spells. A new 'Dimension Link' ability allows you to call any previous characters you have met in worlds and borrow their abilities.

It will include three separate single player story modes, each following one of the three main characters and also four multiplayer modes, which allow you to play with up to six players wirelessly.

Multiplayer modes are:

  • Versus Mode: An all out battle where it's every person for themselves.
  • Arena Mode: Join forces with your friends to defeat wave upon wave of enemies.
  • Rumble Racing: Ride your transformed Keyblade in hover raves.
  • Command Board: A Game of Strategy where up to three players compete by rolling dice.

Is that meant to be Xehanort, the character from previous KH games?

In any case, I'm not really interested. I just want KH3 already.

Going by what I have read this is KH-1 and sounds just as great as the other two. Except on PSP, so the graphics are the same. KH3 should look amazing if they take their time, hopefully looks better than a pixar production.

It's quite embarrassing to think I made that mistake, considering I'm a huge fan of the series, but yes it was meant to be Xehanort.

Thanks for pointing it out, I've fixed it up in the article now.

FINALLY!!!
I've been checking the releases list every week to see if this has been finally announced. AND IT'S FINALLY HERE!

Now... Anyone know if there's going to be a collector's edition?
Can't wait for it, although when you think that it comes out in just over a month in the US and UK, I kinda feel like we're getting leftovers...

OH WELL! IM HAPPY!!!!!
