PSP Kingdom Hearts arrives this summer

Birth by Sleep has meaty multiplayer.

Action role-playing game Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep is heading to Europe this summer.

Released January in Japan, this PSP instalment earned high praise from regional magazine-giant Famitsu, scoring 37/40.

Birth by Sleep serves as a prequel to the first Kingdom Hearts game on PS2. There's a new Disney-meets-JRPG story as well as multiplayer for six people, either fighting against each other; teaming-up for a wave-based arena mode; racing on hovering Keyblades; or strategising on the Command Board.

Besides that are various enhancements to the battle system and some apparently very pretty graphics.
