Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep Japanese Release Date

Square Enix’s highly anticipated Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep for Sony PlayStation Portable has been slated for January 9, 2010 according to Andriasang. While a general January time frame was given by the company during Tokyo Game Show 2009, the date is now set in stone by way of keyblade.

Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep

Hopefully localization will be quick and North American Kingdom Hearts fans will get Birth by Sleep a few months later. Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days was released on May 2009 in Japan and September 2009 in North America — a four-month gap. However, that’s a Nintendo DS game; Birth by Sleep will require more localization time, especially with the voice acting. I’d love an American version by June, but wouldn’t be surprised if it didn’t arrive until August.

I also wonder if Sony will try to work some digital download magic with this title. Can you imagine gamers snatching up PSPgo systems or larger Memory Sticks to play this game a few days earlier than gamers that are set on UMD?

I want this game now!!! How ’bout you?

    Dude, it's 1:00 in the morning. I can at least wait until 9:00.

  2. WWE script?

    I'm not much personally for portable gaming anymore (save the puzzle types on my iPhone), but I'm sure the game will still be great. Maybe my brother will make it happen. haha

    In case you didn't get the memo, wrestling is indeed… fake.

    (sorry, someone had to say it)

  4. Tell Hulk Hogan its fake. Tell Sid Vicious its fake. Tell him,

    that was fake. While the outcome maybe pre-determined, don't tell them its fake. That would be like telling Jackie Chan all his stunts are fake.
