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."
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 ~ Game Informer Articles
Journalist: Phoenix
Date: 22 Nov 2007

Hey everyone and happy Thanksgiving to all our American friends!

There hasn't been much information as of late on anything Kingdom Hearts related.  However, in this month's issue of Game Informer there were two small articles that might interest all of you.  The first article is about the new Kingdom Hearts TCG that has just been released in the US, as of right now I'm not sure if it will be released for the UK or not.


The second article is about 358/2 Days and Birth by Sleep.  There really isn't any new information given on either game, aside for the correct pronunciation for 358/2 Days (Three Five Eight Over Two Days).  Even though it doesn't have any new information it's still a good read. 

Birth by Sleep, 358/2 Days Article

Hopefully there will be more information coming out within the next few weeks about the new KH games.  Be sure to keep checking back with us for all the latest KH news.

Kingdom Hearts 2 icon Kingdom Hearts 2 ~ Scans!
Journalist: Deep
Date: 26 Sep 2007
We're being swamped by loads of new Kingdom Hearts information!

Here's scans thanks to KHNetwork mainly of Birth by Sleep.

Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep [PSP]
There is a big discussion going on whether Ven is Roxas and take a look at scan number 3 in the list, Ven is wearing Roxas' wristband! And look at his collar in scan 4, it is the same as Roxas again!

A lot of people have been trying to find the connection between Terra, Ven, Aqua and Sora, Roxas, Kairi and Riku. But look at this:
Sora = Sky
Kairi = Sea
Riku = Land
Ven = Wind
Aqua = Water
Terra = Earth
That's their names translated to Japanese.

In the scans we can see thorns which can only mean Sleeping Beauty, the sky and island behind Terra in Scan 1 looks like Destiny Islands, the location behind Terra and Ven in scan 1 looks like the battle at Hollow Bastion and we can see that Ven is in the Olympus Coliseum by the walls and pedestall.

There's also rumours circulating that King Mickey was trained by Yen-Sid because in Scan 4 King Mickey is wielding the same Keyblade that was handed to Sora from Yen-Sid (please correct if it has been confirmed that Mickey was the apprentice of Yen-Sid).

Nomura stated that this games story will be serious, complex and varied.

The battle system is inspired by KH and KHCoM which means it is likely to include timing system.

Has three separate stories with Terra and Ven as the protagonists.

Kingdom Hearts: 358/2 Days [DS]
In the 7th scan there's a feminine looking character in an Organization suit, this is the 14th Org. member.
All Organization members are playable characters.
KH:358/2 Days is mission based.
Focuses on the daily lives of the Organization.

More info will be added later.
