 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

I was browsing the KH2 Japanese site when I came across the new images! I only just ripped them. ^^;;







Click last one to Enlarge.

I just thought I got these before KHU, and then they updated with them. xD

EDIT: Translations, thanks to KHU. ^^;;
Flounder: I can't see!
Ariel: I won't go, I was always by your side.
Ursula: Now then Ariel, what beautiful figure shall I change you into?
Ursula: Just sign here.

BTW, I haven't ripped all the images yet. -.- So some of the translations don't match the images.

Kingdom Hearts 2 icon Kingdom Hearts 2 ~ Dengeki Translations

Zansentaman, Andrel2006, and Gotran56 from GameFAQs have translated the most recent Dengeki issue, these are the slightly editted Translations (also thanks to KHU and Sora's Domain for these which we have editted. ^^;;):

Cloud and Leon (Squall) have a "sub-episode" which has nothing to do with the main plot, but it focuses more on Cloud than Leon. Though Cloud's story is more important to him in his point of view. (Uh, yeah. ^.^)
Magic and other Attacks are more powerful when Co-Op moves are used.
The scan says that Axel and DiZ will be in the game (Well, we already knew that guys. ^.^) and he says it was kind of blurry but he believes that both of them are a part of the Thirteenth Order, this makes DiZ either the Superior or Number One. Or atleast a Former Organization member.
What DiZ is doing is pivotal to the entire story.
With the appearance of The Order, the story of Kingdom Hearts II becomes more complex.
The magazine says something like, "They (Axel and DiZ) may be apart of the Thirteenth Order or actually be The Thirteenth Order themselves." (This is what Nomura says).
When Nomura was asked about DiZ and Axel, Nomura says "Play the game and find out. *laughs*" (He would say that wouldn't he? xD)
There is something about the Thirteenth Order in the Magazine, and it does include a lot of Axel and DiZ.
Axel's goals are not necessarily the Organizations goals.
With the Atlantica scans, it says that it's kind of "re-introducing" the stage. (This could mean that in KH they got off onto the wrong foot and are redoing the swimming system due to complaints? Just a thought. xD)
With the V-Jump Atlantica Scans, the world is now "sticking" more to the movie itself. (Yes, we have seen in the scans the Atlantica is following the Little Mermaid story closely seeing as we meet Prince Eric and go above land. ^^;;)
Utada Hikaru made Passion more specifically for KH2 than she made Hikari for Kingdom Hearts.

Pooh: "Hello there, Mr.Somebody from Somewhere."
(Pooh seems to have forgotten about Sora.)
Sora "One, Two, Three!"
(Obviously pulling Pooh out of Rabbit's "door", because Pooh has eaten too much honey again.)

Luxord: "With Parley, I don't need to make a deal."
(Luxord is investigating the Parley Process and does not want Sora involved.)

Jack "Once Parley's been declared, I have no choice but to negotiate."

Thanks a lot GameFAQ's, KHU and Sora's Domain. ^^;;
