News: It's not Kingdom Hearts 3, but Square-Enix has announced two more games in its popular series.



While it wasn't the hoped for Kingdom Hearts III, Square-Enix has done the next best thing and announced two new Kingdom Hearts games for the DS and PSP handhelds at the Tokyo Game Show.

Both games will be directed by Tetsuya Nomura and neither currently has a release date. The DS game, Kingdom Hearts 358 Over 2 Days, explains what happens to Roxas while Sora slept. The PSP game, Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep, is actually a prequel detailing the origins of the Kingdom Hearts world.

While the actual trailers for the games were revealed behind closed doors at TGS, Square-Enix has released a small morsel of story for each game:

Kingdom Hearts 358 Over 2 Days (DS)
The untold story of another hero.
Organization XIII, Number 13, Roxas

In Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days, you will explore a variety of Disney worlds in not only single-player mode, but also in multiplayer missions made possible by the unique networking features of the Nintendo DS.

Twilight Town...
Roxas and Axel were watching the sunset from their usual spot on the station's clock tower after a long day of collecting "hearts" from the Heartless, as ordered by their organization. When their daily work ended, they often spent their evenings there. They talked about the day's work and other things over ice cream.

"Do you know why the sun looks red as it sinks below the horizon? It's because among the countless colors comprising light, red travels the greatest distance."

"You're just trying to show off, Axel!"

It was idle chatter between two boys without hearts.

This is the untold story of Organization XIII's Roxas.




Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep (PSP)
It was an awakening that would signal the beginning of the Kingdom Hearts saga.

Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep is the tale of a new trio of heroes, told across three scenarios utilizing the groundbreaking technology of the PSP. Exciting new features will be introduced on top of the traditional controls, game system, and visual style of its predecessors.

"The Keyblade is said to hold phenomenal power. One legend says its wielder saved the world, while another says that he wrought chaos and ruin upon it." - from Ansem's Report (Kingdom Hearts)

Long before Sora took up the Keyblade, there were other Keyblade masters. One of these masters, Xehanort, disappeared one day along with his apprentice. This event proved to be a foreshadowing of great disaster to come. Aware of the threat, another master ordered his three apprentices to seek out Xehanort and his cohort.


We'll have more on both of these titles soon.
