One of the newest installments in the Square-Enix/Disney franchise for the Nintendo DS came out in Japan this past fall and will hit U.S. shores January 11, 2011. Kingdom Hearts Re:Coded is actually a full remake of another DS game titled Kingdom Hearts coded which was also a remake from a mobile phone version of the same name. Like Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories, Re:Coded is an action puzzle game only instead of cards, the player will be using blocks. Kind of like Tetris…
The game is said to take place after Kingdom Hearts II has ended right where you see our three protagonists: Sora, Riku and Kairi hanging out on the beach. Our little journal-keeper, Jiminy Cricket, was going through his notes of the previous adventures and noticed something a little out of place.
“Thank you, Namine…”
King Mickey, Jiminy and our three heroes then discover a note that was not written by Jiminy and they must get to the bottom of it to find out what this is all about. Mickey creates a digital world out of the journal Jiminy kept and it’s up to Sora and his friends to go into virtual space and find the answers they seek.
You’ll meet up with old characters and many new ones in this virtual journal all while trying to solve puzzles, getting to secret areas and fighting off those nasty Heartless. I also hear that there is an exclusive secret ending for ReCoded, so be sure to look out for it!
