 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

Probably the best place to find KHII videos from is KHE. I've aquired the full version of the KHII ending. The previous KHII ending was sliced by the uploader into small scenes which confused the viewers and it made no sense. The video is 17 minutes long. The file size is 95.86MB. I've also aquired more KHII cutscenes. Yet all these videos will contain spoilers. So download at your own risk. And please don't discuss anything that featured in any of these videos in the comments page.

After the release of KHII in Japan. Square Enix decided to finally open the Twilight Town section. Twilight Town is an interactive section. It makes you search the whole town to find wallpapers and I found it extremely hard. This is because if you want to search a new section of Twilight Town you need to answer 2 questions in Japanese. You have to get 2 of them right in a row. It then gets harder and reaches 5 questions. Which means answering 5 questions in a row lets you explore the new section. It would have been pretty easy if the questions were in English but unfortunately they aren't. As I worked my butt off to get you these wallpapers exploring every part of Twilight Town. Anyway most importantly. I hope you enjoy viewing these wallpapers.

I've inserted the wallpapers on another page since it was taking a large amount of space. If you would like to view them just click on the read full article. The reason I inserted it on the next page was because I wanted to insert some KHII poems here. These poems were taken from a user called Kingdomliberty. I would like to thank him for supplying us with the poems.

  • Pathway to Twilight

    “Ahead of you lies a road”
    Which one will you choose?
    Take the left, and go down the path of darkness
    Take the right, and follow the way to the light

    Standing at this crossroad, three paths are now in sight
    Choose the one that leads to day
    Or everlasting night

    The middle road is one less traveled
    One many do not know
    For it takes great courage, strength, and bravery
    If you choose this path to go

    Although you will encounter here
    The thoughts and dreams of past
    You have shown to overcome your fear
    And find the light at last

    To travel this path you must give up
    Something you hold so dear
    If you walk down this dusty road
    Your memories may reappear

    Memories from long ago
    When you vowed to stand and fight
    You’ll find the one you long for most
    Down the pathway to twilight

  • Walk On

    Braving the darkness
    And finding the path
    That leads me to you

    We are connected
    You and I
    And our hope keeps us together

    With you here beside me
    You give me the strength to walk on
    Knowing that someday…

    I’ll find you waiting
    And we’ll walk on together
    Towards the coming dawn

    KINGDOM HEARTS

  • Illusions

    I know I’ll find you waiting
    Although my heart’s a battleground
    I can see you standing there

    And I’m running to you
    To see you again
    And I’m fighting through the illusions

    My fears are lies
    And nothing stands in the way
    Of getting to you

    The illusions disappear
    And all that’s left is you and I
    Together

    KINGDOM HEARTS II (Kairi)
