Square Enix has announced a 9th October European release date for Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days.
This DS mashup of Disney and Final Fantasy revolves around hero Roxas and his mysterious past as part of Organization XIII. Timeline-wise, the setting sits between Kingdom Hearts I and II.
More significantly, 358/2 Days is the first Kingdom Hearts game with multiplayer - a maximum of four friends can team up together.
Renowned FF creator Tetsuya Nomura and his team have made a full 3D world stuffed with hefty bosses, full orchestral soundtrack and varied missions. The Limit Break system from FFVII makes an appearance, as does a Panel System to keep spells, abilities and levels tidy.
Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days was released for Japan in May, and appears fractionally earlier in the US on 29th September.
Japanese magazine Famitsu scored Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days four nines, totalling 36/40.
