Voice of Roxas Twitters About PSP Kingdom Hearts

... maybe.


 Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories Vol 1
Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories Vol 1
Oh twitter, you've been causing celebrities to break non-disclosure announcements for years now, and I'm not too broken up about it. Today's leaker is Jesse McCartney, who you might recognize as the voice of Roxas from Kingdom Hearts 2 and 358/2. His twitter proclaimed:

Recording yet another Kingdom Hearts Game. All you Gamers eat your heart out! Man what a process tho. First recordin was in 2005 for game 1.

As Kotaku points out, the "first" game came out 2002. 2005 was when the first game he was in came out. Oh well, either way there's only one Kingdom Hearts game that's been announced, so that leaves the hyper exciting Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep. This PSP prequel promises to take players for a ride through many of the more ominous events that led into Kingdom Hearts 1... namely, the Keyblade War referenced in KH:2.
 
The fact that the game includes an obvious Roxas character (named Ventus) only seeks to further validate his claims. Anyways, the Japanese marketplace gets the game January 9th, and we'll get it... well, when Jesse McCartney is done with it.

Well that nice, a new spinoff to remind us about the lack of KH3

w00t!  I'm super excited for this game.  The game is finally coming out in Japan next month.  I just hope it doesn't take forever to release in the US.

@Void_Wizard: I think the PixelJunk team is also refusing to do PSN store relases. After PixelJunk Monsters they felt like a digital release just begs even harder for piracy, which has never been too difficult in the first place.
 
Hopefully they resolve their qualms though, since I'd hate to have the PSPGo users feel screwed and unable to play some of the biggest titles to grace their system.

Doing that won't stop piracy on the PSP at all.

Man I remember when Kingdom Hearts 2 came out and it took 6 FUCKING months 
from when it was released in the US until it was released here. Why? Just why!? 
 
On a different note entirely I think Roxas is way cooler than Sora based on these facts: 
  • Better/lesser hair.
  • Sad story at the start of KingdomHearts 2.
  • A more unique name.
  • He holds his keyblade over his shoulders when running.
 
358/2 Days made me hate icecream though.
