Birth by Sleep gets Release Date, Translated TGS Trailer

Oh Kingdom Hearts, how I love thee

This makes me feel all squishy. I mean, when Kingdom Hearts 1 came out I mocked it, then secretly played when no one was around. I too giggled when pooh got stuck, yet grew more and more enamored as successive games took us away from Maleficent, and more into spiky haired dudes who shoot lasers.
Well, come January 9th you too can get a PSP full of Kingdom Hearts prequel. Birth by sleep, as it is called, takes place 10 years before the first game, and promises to totally play with your mind... and gentiles, if you're into that sort of thing.
(The translated video comes for Kingdom Hearts Insider, who are fun people. /pimping)

This game is going to be epic.  I guess I will finally be buying a PSP game again.  Haven't bought a PSP game in about a year.

Have you picked up 358/2 John? What did you think?

@Zeouterlimits: Not yet. I was real excited to check it out, but in the rush of packing I accidentally left my DS in Texas.   : (
Though I will say I'm considerably more interested in Birth by Sleep as a prequel/lead into the arrival of the people at Ansem's place. Still really want to check it out though, I've heard its pretty solid awesome.

Man, I'm such a Disney nut-- I liked KH1 better than KH2, which had less of the whimsical Disney stuff. The trailer makes it look like there's a little more of that in Sleep By Birth. I hope that's the case :D

I think this will be a good game. It amazing how many character I recognized, and not just Disney stars but I saw two of the people who would make up Organization XIII
