    As we approach the release of Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days next month, new videos were posted on the official site. And there was the official boxart released for Japan as well. Enjoy!

    Boxart (love it)-
    [​IMG]

    Video #1 showing off some of the moves like high jump, glide, guard, and dodge roll-


    Video #2 showing us some of the menu functions (and a nice DS version of the tune World that Never Was)-


    EDIT: I am updating to include some new scans. Not anything as cool as the video, but it shows some interaction with the REAL Twilight Town kids (Hayner Pence and Olette) and some Organization members seen in Castle Oblivion. And they also show what appears to be the world select screen, part of the Neverland world, and the character select screen for multiplayer. It should be noted that Xion the new 14th member does not appear on this select screen, possibly foreshadowing that she will NOT be playable in multiplayer and only seen as a story partner in single player. Here you go:

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    This game is fast approaching Japan. It's coming May 30, so keep a sharp eye out. It looks like one of the best DS RPG's. We'll see! A US release is confirmed, but no date yet. [​IMG]

    The Keyblade in that cover looks awesome. It's WAY Shinier.

    Nice I might play even though It's in Japanese but not to much so that I don't ruin the story but how many enemies are going to be on the screen at a time since I heard the DS can't handle much and too less might make it really boring.

    I love the surreal feeling of the boxart. Of course, SE has always made simple yet effective covers.

    Man, I'm so hyped for KH. I'm definitely going to pick this up when I go to Japan over the summer.

    Of course it looks better. PSP is known for graphics.

    I thought they would use the promotional poster for that DSi Case. Looks like I'm right. And you know what would be funny in the game? If they has Shibuya from The World Ends With You in it [​IMG]

    TWEWY + KH? That would be epic but it wouldn't fit with the FF/Disney theme. D:

    I wouldn't put it pass them. They have the same creators too. I can't see why Nomura would have a reason not to put them in there. Nomura pulls off surprises before, and again I wouldn't put it pass them.

    Nice... I am gonna wait for English release. It looks like Chain of Memories except 3-D.

    Had two sources but not sure which to believe... Wikipedia says NA Release will be at September 30 2009 and GameStop says they will ship the pre-orders at August 31 2009... Which to believe....

    Of course BBS looks better. It's on a system that is at least 3-4 times more powerful in just raw spead than the DS and benefits from an enormous CD-based storage medium. That doesn't mean it IS better though. Gameplay > graphics. I don't doubt it will be great, because it likely will (and may indeed be better than 358/2 Days), we just don't know that much about it yet. Sadly, there is no release date for it at all Japan or otherwise. Not even a tentative one, or an approximate year.

    What I'm wondering is-

    - How much of the DS game will be voiced
    - What size cartridge will it be one

    I have to admit, if Square Enix doesn't use a 256MB DS card this time, they'll be a bit behind in the technology for a change. Doesn't matter though.

    If they do put Shibuya in the game, I wonder how Neku will look in 3-D?

    He'd be cel-shaded and look terribly out of place.

    They wouldn't do that. If Neku did happen to be in the game, he'd look just as fine as the other characters in the game.

    I'm hoping for Sora as a playable 15th character. And possibly Riku, though he has a better chance than Sora at this point.

    The dodge roll looks exactly the same as the one from PS0 except without the Lag at the end.
    Everything is looking great.
