Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days appeared alongside Dissidia: Final Fantasy with a playable build at Jump Fiesta 2007. Like the Final Fantasy fighter, Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days will also appear sometime in 2008. In the game you play as Roxas, a member of Organization XIII, between the events of Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories and Kingdom Hearts II. Unlike Chain of Memories there are no cards to worry about. Players use the familiar Kingdom Hearts menu interface to cast spells and whack heartless with a keyblade.
The most novel feature is how you can team up with other Organization XIII members like Axel, Saix and Xigbar through local Nintendo DS wireless play. New Disney movies probably aren’t going to be a draw here. Confirmed worlds include familiar locations like Olympus Coliseum, Wonderland and Twilight Town. Perhaps, this won’t be an issue since the Kingdom Hearts franchise has developed its own mythology to stand on.
