Square Enix and Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days developer h.a.n.d. are working on a new Kingdom Hearts game. It’s not Kingdom Hearts III. It’s Kingdom Hearts Re:coded.
The game popped up in Square Enix’s E3 lineup. Here’s what Square Enix has to say about it.
Sora’s journey in Kingdom Hearts II has drawn to a close, and now a new tale is set to begin. Jiminy Cricket is looking over the journal he used to document his first adventure with Sora when he discovers a mysterious message. He didn’t write it – so how on earth did it get there? King Mickey is determined to find out, so he and his friends decide to digitize the journal and delve into its deepest secrets. Inside this “datascape” dwells a second Sora who is about to embark on a grand adventure of his very own.
Kingdom Hearts:coded, a mobile phone game (pictured below), also takes place after Kingdom Hearts II and involves Jiminy Cricket’s journal. Kingdom Hearts Re:coded appears to be a Nintendo DS remix.
Update: Square Enix sent over this teaser screenshot of Sora.
