    This Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep Trailer Is Practically a Movie

    Watch Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep's three protagonists embody the qualities of ambition, compassion, and peppiness in this lengthy trailer. Of course, they're not going to reveal what's behind the creepy kid's mask until you shell out for the actual game.

    Indeed, it looks to be an actually worthy portable KH game. I could do without the hyperactive Sora-alike, but I suppose it can't be helped.

    *looks up VAs*

    OK, we know every major character except Terra. Ven is still McCartney. Nimoy is Master Xehanort. Master Eraqus is Hamill. Willa Holland is Aqua (who I'm not really impressed with from the trail... sounds flat). Vanitas is Haley Joel Osment.

    Even Sora and Riku are in this game, though they are younger. Truely a prequel.

    I do not want to play this game, however, I must. I have my principles. I have played through every US-released (and many that were not) Square game up to date and this can be no exception.

    The closer I get to 30, the less I care about melodrama.

    Yeah I'm not impressed with Aqua's VA either.

    It's bad enough that Ven looks like Roxas, but casting Sora's VA as another main character is going to be confusing.

    Well, see, in Japan, Vanitas was also done by Sora's voice actor. However, in that case, it was because the voice actor wanted to play an evil role (was tired of being pigeon hole'd). ...SE tends to 1:1 VAs in this regard.

    I'm no defender of Kingdom Hearts, but this is easily the best portable game in the series, and I feel, the best Kingdom Hearts since the original.

    I liked the first one, but have not enjoyed any KH titles since. Birth by Sleep, however, I really liked. I recommend it to anyone who ever enjoyed any game in the series, though I don't think it'll convert any haters.

    I liked the two main games. I really hated the GBA one (why did they make fights using cards, I mean wtf) and the DS one simply sucked.

    As for this one, tried the JP version and it was awesome, but couldn't understand anything.

    I still like the GBA one the best... on the PS2. The original version was kind of hard to get into. The DS one was basically a quick cash scheme with little relevance to the series.

    A quick cash scheme? The production values for that game are immense for a DS game. How exactly is it a quick cash scheme?

    Oh. My. God. Words do not describe my excitement for this game. It's going to absolutely kick ***. Probably mine. What is it about Kingdom Hearts? Why do I love it so? Why is summer warm? All pointless questions...

    But yeah, when people ask why I still support Square-Enix, the easiest reply is just 'Simple. Kingdom Hearts.'
    Madness is a complete statement. Saying more would be pointless.

    I really enjoyed KH1, but was disappointed in the exceedingly linear nature of KH2. I hope BBS brings back a bit more exploration.

    KHII was a bit linear. The improved camera, graphics and skill system definitely helped make up for that, though.

    I hope I enjoy this game, The DS game kind of killed my excitement about this one.
