Since I can't sleep I figured I would share my thoughts on the upcoming game Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days for Nintendo DS. Scheduled for North American release August 29, 2009, the Japanese version has already been out since May 2009. Even though the game didn't even come out until the last week of the month, it lead sales for May and sold close to 300,000 copies. That's pretty impressive, no doubt about it.
At least you're a cash cow with depth! :D
I will say that I did not import this game, so I have no personal "hands on" experience. I have read reviews of the Japanese game, plus read/watched previews of both the Japanese and English versions from various sources. Even with my affection for Kingdom Hearts as a whole, I was somewhat wary of 358/2 Days. It looked to me like a KH version of Final Fantasy X-2. With all the fanfiction/fanart that I've seen floating around the internet (there is a lot, people. A LOT.), 358/2 Days, with it's screen shots of Roxas and Axel together eating sea salt ice cream, just looked like ultimate fan-service. Especially after the rumours and then confirmation of this 'fourteenth' Organization XIII member, who just happens to be a girl Roxas' age, I surrendered myself to looking forward to Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep for the PSP instead.
So does Kingdom Hearts: 358/2 Days seem up to snuff? Just click the cut to read more.

Axel, stop trying to give Roxas the paopu fruit...
