Square Enix has stamped a January 11 release date on Kingdom Hearts Re:Coded, the publisher announced today.
Story-wise, the Nintendo DS title picks up where KH2 left off, as players unravel the mystery behind an entry in Jiminy Cricket’s journal that he did not write. Perplexed by its significance, King Mickey digitizes the journal, opening up a “datascape” to explore its contents and investigate. In a bizarre twist, a second Sora lies within the digital world.
A remake of the Japan-only mobile effort Kingdom Hearts Coded, Re:Coded features several enhancements to the staple KH battle system, including a new character growth system and boss battles inspired by “side-scrolling, shooting and classic Final Fantasy games.”
