Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days will be released in the UK on October 9th.
The title is the first DS instalment in the long-running RPG series that combines the locations and characters of Final Fantasy and Disney, which has sold more than 12 million copies worldwide.
358/2 Days explores the story of Kingdom Hearts II’s Roxas, charting his days as a member of Organisation XIII and hinting at his connection to the events of the two console adventures. The game is also the first in the series to feature a multiplayer mode.
“The Kingdom Hearts series goes from strength to strength,” said Square Enix’s vice president of brand Larry Sparks. “With Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days, we are delighted to be revisiting these wonderfully unique worlds and very excited about the addition of a multiplayer mode. I am sure fans will find this another thrilling and essential entry in the series.”
