Over the past few months, there has been a lack of Kingdom Hearts news, which has worried fans if the Kingdom Hearts games were going to be delayed just like Final Fantasy XIII, which has been pushed back to April 2010 supposedly. But yes, there is a confirmed release date of Kingdom Hearts 358 2 Days for the Japanese consumer, May 30th 2009. We are led to believe that Kingdom Hearts 358 2 Days will cure our cravings for our favourite franchise in gaming at August or September 2009. We have further backing to this theory from Gamestop, who have started to do preorders for 358 2 Days and they have stated on their website that the game could be released on 31st August 2009, selling for $39.99.

In other news, Square has uploaded a new video (worth 41 seconds) onto the official website for the upcoming game and this has been posted onto youtube too and here is a video that was posted on March 5th 2009.
