    Wow, 80 missions... that's pretty nice. This is probably the ONLY DS game I'll actually bother playing on wi-fi with.

    As for Riku being playable, it was expected.

    It's too bad the game doesn't have Wi-Fi [​IMG]

    Either way, it'll probably be awesome. Can't wait for it.

    Sorry for being ignorant (and going slightly off-topic), but is Sora even a playable character in this game? [​IMG]

    Um, can't you play the missions with your friends in multi-player?

    EDIT: Famitsu gave it a 36/40 (9/9/9/9)

    local multiplayer. not wi-fi. Also, I'd expected them to give it a higher score then that. Was expecting a perfect score

    The Famitsu score is fine. Just think It's A Wonderful World/The World Ends With You was the last major (read as non-port/revamp/etc) Square Enix title and it got a 35/40. And that game was awesome. So an extra point might mean this could go against Hotel Dusk and the Phoenix Wright series for best-all-around game for the DS.

    So, does that mean 258/2 Days is in between the end of Chain of Memories and the start of Kingdom Hearts 2?

    Unfortunate announcement about a voice- Wayne Allwine, Mickey Mouse's voice since 1977, passed away on May 18, 2009 at the age of 62 (born in 1947). He died due to complications including diabetes and the need to have a kidney replaced. RIP Disney legend and a great man. [​IMG]

    On topic-

    This game happens during the tail end of KH1, through Chain of Memories, up to the beginning of Kingdom Hearts 2. There is an almost one year period that this game takes place in, 358 days to be exact. You play as those remaining 7 days of the full year as Roxas in the beginning of KH2.

    And there IS a possibility that Sora is playable in multiplayer. The mission mode in multiplayer is considered non-canon and the characters are not their real forms, but data-based projections. How else could you play as Donald and Goofy in multiplayer? They too were asleep during the game as well as Sora. We've seen Sora mirroring Roxas in certain scenes during the game on the bottom screen. It's possible he'll be a secret unlockable character.

    My hopes for unlockable characters-

    - Sora
    - Mickey (this would be epic, but I wonder what they will do with the loss of his great voice actor...)

    This...can't be happening...Wayne died?! Now who's going to play Mickey?! (Not just in Kingdom Hearts, but in the movies and shows and stuff too!) This just can't be happening..I feel sad. May you rest in peace.

    Very very sad indeed. I'm more concerned about him and his family at the moment though. We can think about voice replacement at a later time. Mickey's voice is somewhat easy to replicate in sound, but he gave the role soul and emotion like no other IMHO.
