Disney-tastic start to the New Year

The latest collaboration between Square Enix and Disney, Kingdom Hearts Re:coded, has just been confirmed for a release across Europe on January 14th.

A beefed-up port of a Japan-only mobile game, Re:coded features fan favourite characters from both companies, including Cloud Strife, Mickey Mouse and Hercules, as well as a brand new Tag Mode that lets players share items and information when they pass another player.

There's currently no official North American release date for the game but we'll let you know when we receive one.


Sora’s journey in KINGDOM HEARTS II has drawn to a close, now a new tale is set to begin.

London (6 October 2010) – Square Enix Ltd., the publisher of SQUARE ENIX® interactive entertainment products in Europe and other PAL territories, today announces KINGDOM HEARTS Re:coded will be released across PAL territories on 14 January, 2011 exclusively for the Nintendo DS system.

Jiminy Cricket is looking over the journal he used to document his first adventure with Sora when he discovers a mysterious message. He didn’t write it – so how did it get there? King Mickey is determined to find out, so he and his friends decide to digitise the journal and delve into its deepest secrets. Inside this “datascape” dwells a second Sora who is about to embark on a grand adventure of his very own.

Set after the conclusion of KINGDOM HEARTS II, KINGDOM HEARTS Re:coded offers an exciting new adventure as you revisit events and characters from the previous KINGDOM HEARTS games in order to solve the mystery discovered by Jiminy Cricket. With new game mechanics, a variety of different play systems and a custom avatar system, KINGDOM HEARTS Re:coded looks set to be another colourful and fun-filled KINGDOM HEARTS adventure.

Larry Sparks, Vice President Brands PAL Regionof Square Enix Ltd. comments, “The KINGDOM HEARTS series goes from strength to strength and Re:coded is another smash hit with an intriguing mystery to solve and plenty of fun along the way.”

As long as it isn't another retread in previous gameplay, worlds and plot. Oh wait, that'd be nearly every game after KH2. Seriously, you can only explore between/around 2 games for so long. Release the damned sequel.

@OB: KH2 dwelled in previous worlds. The only big retread I noticed was Chain of Memories

@OB: BbS has all new worlds, also it's pretty much KH3, 'cept a prequel, so they chose to call it something else.
I must say again, anyone who hasn't played BbS should run out and buy it, it's a fantastic game, and KH3's story won't make sense if you haven't played BbS.

Man, lucky for the UK. I really hope it comes to the US. Looks fun. I love Kingdom Hearts, anyways.

@Ax yeah i wanna play BBS but Im still holding out on getting a PSP, just not that many games that I want, especially with the 3DS on the horizon.

I really don't recommend it. They're good games, but it's hard to start in the middle. It's very story based and it can get extremely confusing if you didn't play all the other games. It was almost impossible to get through Kingdom heats 2 story or 365/2 days without playing the other ones.

@GavinRozee: Definitely start with the first game, it'll make a lot more sense! I love this series to death, but you pretty much need to play them in release order to make anything of it all.
