The legendary Keyblade is said to hold
Some legends say that long ago, its wielder saved the world,
while some say that he brought chaos and ruin upon it.

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
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."
One Line Rumours
Dark warrior (helmet unknown) is Terra's brother. ~Jetzudan
Master Xehanort posesses Terra and creates KH2 Xehanort.
Terra is Xehanort's apprentice/disciple ~Xagzan
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. ~
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.
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

Okay, just been browsing GameFAQs forum and found that BHK's name is not Siru. It was made up by a member of KHInsider I believe. Correct me if I'm wrong.
And now the name "Roxas" has been found on a candy/sweet wrapper. This is still unconfirmed information though. And this may not be BHK's name, it might actually be the female Org. members name. Somehow I think this might be fake.
And some people believe BHK's friends names are: Black Haired Boy: Pints The Fat Boy: Heine Girl: Orrette This is a rumour for now, but this info came from the same site that told us about Tron, YuRiPa and Chicken Little.
And apparently Sezzer (Setzer?) from FFVI appears in Twilight Town as the champion of a ball game called "Struggle Battle". This is still unconfirmed.
And this is confirmed: Sephiroth is in the game. And Nomura said that if KH2 sells well then they'll make a KH3. The introduction movie for KH2 was made by the same team that worked on FF7: AC! So expect a really cool intro to KH2! ^.^
This is what Gotran and Andrel of GameFAQs found out:
Gotran: "Recently you may have heard about a few new summons appearing in Kingdom Hearts 2, one of them was Stitch, which is 100% confirmed. One of the others on the list was the combination of Riku, Yuna, and Paine as a summon. Well, some of you may be happy or some of you may be sad, but I found out that they aren't just summons, they're making cameo appearences. Also, since they were wrong about them being summons, they might have been wrong about the Chicken Little summon. Also, another new tidbit, it seems that This new info, (Rinoa making an appearence, BHK's name, new promo video, Ultimania info) Will NOT have to wait until Jump Festa 05, that information IS SPECULATED to appear in the Dorimanga magazine being released TOMORROW! So someone should look out for that. We'll see what's in store for us. Big thanks to my translator, Andrel, for the translations. That's all for now."
So Rikku, Yuna and Paine make cameo appearences, and thanks to vilaeth the reason why YRP are so small is because they're fairies/sprites.
And thanks to mucals: BHK's story is very painful and sad. The KHCoM Org. members won't be appearing. The 100 Acre Wood book belongs to Yensid (Mickey's master in Fantasia). The basic storyline should end with KH2 but new mysteries will be created. To battle with the Magic Carpet is interesting. And the scene with Sora holding Stitch in Hawaii is a summon animation, not a new world with Stitch.

Just read a new post in the GameFAQs topic that AhruonDethwolf submitted and apparently Chicken Little does appear! I'll upload the scans in a minute... Chicken Little Scan It's bad quality.
