Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days dated

Latest of the Final Fantasy/Disney hybrid out autumn

Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days will be released in the UK this autumn, Square Enix has confirmed.

358/2 Days stars famous Disney and Final Fantasy characters and is the first game in the series to feature a multiplayer mode.


It's the second Kingdom Hearts game on a Nintendo console, after the brilliant Chain Of Memories which was released on GBA in 2005. That one followed the story of Sora, but this new adventure focuses on Roxas, the Keyblade wielding hero from PS2's Kingdom Hearts 2.

It'll feature four-player co-op and competitive multiplayer modes, and special trial missions.

Final Fantasy VII fans will recognise the special Limit Break near-death ability and there is also a Panel system designed to make you think strategically about what you can carry as you organise your weapons, spells, abilities and levels.

Here's some new shots.
