TGS: Portable Kingdom Hearts

New games for DS, PSP, mobile.

Square Enix has announced that it's working on three new Kingdom Hearts games for DS, PSP and mobile phones.

So far the trio are only confirmed for Japan, with releases in other territories still to be determined.

The DS offering is Kingdom Hearts: 358/2 Days, directed by moody Tetsuya Nomura and Tomohiro Hasegawa. Popular faces Roxas and Axel are said to be playable here, either in single- or multiplayer missions.

The second game is Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep for PSP, which will introduce a trio of new keyblade apprentices who are trying to find a missing keyblade master. Nomura is once again involved, co-directing with Tai Yasue.

Last but not least is the mobile title Kingdom Hearts: Coded. Here events kick off after Jiminy Cricket finds a mysterious message, prompting a whole new quest for Sora embark on. Glad to see the insect still finding work, he was particularly strong in Pinocchio.

Kingdom Hearts is a franchise that mixes the world of Walt Disney into a Japanese role-playing smoothie. The effect is enormously tasty, commanding over 10 million sales-slurps worldwide.

The most recent instalment in the series was Kingdom Hearts II on PS2, which turned out to be well worth the lengthy PAL-release wait.
