 Prologue
The legendary Keyblade is said to hold phenomenal power.
Some legends say that long ago, its wielder saved the world, while some say that he brought chaos and ruin upon it.
(Ansem Report 8)

The trailer shown at the Tokyo Game Show 2007 has got everyone on their toes for the first of three new Kingdom Hearts games, here we have Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep for the Playstation Portable which is a prequel to KH1. Here is the trailer summary:

The beginning of the trailer shows scenes from the ending of Kingdom Hearts 1 followed by text that reads "Deep Past" and "Shut-Eyes gives birth to the concealed fate".
Next we see two young males (who were in the secret ending of Kingdom Hearts 2) in a place resembling Hollow Bastion. The first young male can only be described as a Roxas look-a-like. He's talking to the other boy who sports black hair (we believe he's called Terra) and says "Ven.".

Many scenes flash on the screen before stopping on a bald old man with goatee known as "Master Xehanort", he calls the black haired male "Terra". A Keyblade appears in Terra's hands.

The scene cuts and we're shown two worlds, Olympus Coliseum is back (how can you have a Kingdom Hearts game without tournaments?) Followed by a world that can only be described as "Sleeping Beauty" which makes sense as Maleficent has been the villain (and co-villain) for the past games.

Next we see Terra (the black haired young male) engaging combat against the darkly dressed male warrior who we saw in KH2's secret ending video that Master Xehanort created. Terra manages to force the helmet off his dark opponent but we're unable to see his face.

King Mickey is shown summoning a Keyblade that is a cross between sword and wand, he is wearing different clothes from usual so we know that Birth By Sleep is a prequel to KH1. The scene cuts quickly to Terra on a beach observing two kids, the two figures become clearer, it's Sora and Riku playing. The trailer ends with these words from Terra:
"Please don't depend on me, just erase me...friend."
 
Rumours
One Line Rumours
Dark warrior (helmet unknown) is Terra's brother. ~Jetzudan
Master Xehanort posesses Terra and creates KH2 Xehanort. ~KabbageLynn
Terra is Xehanort's apprentice/disciple ~Xagzan

Mickey Theory
You will be able to play as Mickey and travel through time as him, which is the only possibility that Mickey can talk to Sora in a prequel (as seen in the scan from yesterday of Traverse Town). Also in the trailer summary it said that Terra was looking at Sora on the beach, which could be the moment that he chose Sora as the new keyblade bearer. ~ kingsora

Name Analysis
In the Famitsu Trailer overall summary, it says "It seems the above three are full story on the new projects. At the end of the trailers, we see "Hidden" "Days are" "Born from sleep", words which embody the three trailers. Then we see "The story leads on to an approaching time." which puts us in the mind of the three titles being linked to the next game."
"Hidden" meaning the lost memory in Coded - "Days are" signifying 358/2 Days - "Born from sleep" referring ro Birth by Sleep.
"Hidden Days are Born by Sleep" - This phrase is probably highly significant for a future title that ties everything together from the three games (Kingdom Hearts 3?). ~ Quoted from KHU Forums, written by The Graceful Assassin

Terra and Xehanort Theory
Master Xehanort will takeover Terra--the resemblance between Xehanort (young) and Terra is just too much. After the takeover some part of Terra may remain. This is the part you face in Kingdom Hearts 2 and is possibly why he asks his friends to forget about him because he is no longer a whole person. ~Chill

Xehanort Theory
Xehanort didn't do his job as a Keyblade Wielder, he was evil and it was up to Terra, Ven and Aqua to stop him in his tracks. They win the battle which makes Xehanort disappear. Perhaps when he disappeared he fell into a deep sleep and he wakes up, or is reborn (Birth by Sleep) during Kingdom Hearts (or Kingdom Hearts 2). Ansem stumbles apon Xehanort, but he can't remember anything but his name. At some point Xehanort transforms into a Heartless and Nobody (Xemnes) and Sora vanquishes him which puts him back in a deep sleep and he is reborn (again) after Kingdom Hearts 2 but this time he has retained his memories. This is a good theory because Nomura said a big part of the new series is Xehanorts memories. ~Igloo9

Kingdom Hearts 2 icon Kingdom Hearts 2 ~ Nomura, KHII & PS3!
Journalist: Itani
Date: 24 Jan 2006

IGN has recently updated it's page with comments of what all the top dogs from the gaming industry think about the next generation of gaming. The PS3. Normura's comment was this:

Tetsuya Nomura -- Square Enix Designer
Nomura gives himself 100 out of 100. Apparently he gave himself 50 in 2004 because he was unable to release Advent Children. In addition to the 50 for that product, this finally arrived earlier this year. This year's score also gets 50 from Kingdom Hearts II, which was released to Japan on December 22. For 2006, Nomura states that his next directorial role is coming into view. The Kingdom Hearts II team, having just finished work on KHII, has yet to start on the next generation of systems. The team that made the PS3 Final Fantasy VII demo, however, has been working on next-generation stuff for the past year, and has shared with Nomura the belief that working on next-generation machines is tough. Nomura points to PSP's Crisis Core as something that will get his attention in 2006, and also expresses interest in more casual portable games. The game that left the greatest impression Nomura was Tekken 5, as he played it most; he actually plays all Tekken games when they come out. When Kingdom Hearts II was finished, he got sucked into the PS2 version of Resident Evil 4 and cleared it late at night. The event or happening that left the greatest impression with him was the build up to the release of Advent Children.

This video contains instructions on how to gain the secret form. It's also pretty in depth and shouldn't be hard to learn on how to transform into the secret form. I will not be mentioning the forms name since it's a spoiler.
