Kingdom Hearts Re:coded confirmed in Square Enix's E3 games list

Remember a couple days ago when we reported on a voice actor saying he was working on an unannounced Kingdom Hearts game, which we thought was called Recoded? Now Square Enix confirmed its existence in a list of the games they’re showing at E3. But how correct were the rumors?

Well the actual subtitle, Re:coded, is a more idiotic than we thought, though it falls in line with the titling of the last remake, Re: Chain of Memories. And our hopes that this would finally take the series to current gen systems were crushed as we saw Nintendo DS listed as the platform. But otherwise, the rumors of it being a remake of the Japan-only, episodic, Mobile game Coded were spot on. The description on the list mentions the same plot of Mickey and company scouring over Sora’s journal of his travels in the first game, which sounds like it going to be a bit of a rehash of previous levels. We look forward to huddling over a DSi to check this out next week.

Above: Here’s the Japanese trailer for Coded

The rest of the list was mostly made up of games we’ve been hearing about a lot lately, like Kane & Lynch 2, Deus Ex: Human Revolution and Final Fantasy XIV, but we were very happy to see The 3rd Birthday for PSP on the list. This sequel to one of our favorite and long dormant PlayStation series, Parasite Eve, hasn’t been seen in awhile and this may be our first chance to see the title in English.

Lastly, what’s absent on this list makes us hope Square Enix has some surprises in store, as Final Fantasy Versus XIII is woefully absent. Perhaps it could be shown at Sony’s press conference, reconfirming the title as an exclusive, or maybe Microsoft will show it off at their event, to publically take another big name title away from Sony. Or is it the most likely case that the game has just been delayed again and we won’t play it until at least 2011? Here’s hoping for even a trickle of info next week.

    Re:Coded looks very interesting.It looks like its after KH2, but revisiting the events of the past games to fill in what really happened. If anything, the REAL story of the first game wasn't 100% accurate and that it could have been that DiZ didn't restore it exactly how it should have been. Re:Coded seems to be restoring what really happened in the first game. Hell, I have too much time on my hands.

    Re:coded, eh? Sounds interesting. I absolutely adored KH1&2, but Chain of Memories was meh and I despised 358/2 Days. Maybe this will be better... Also, I'm very pleased to see that Parasite Eve: The 3rd Birthday is on Square Enix's E3 list.

    Re:coded... Isn't that a response to someone saying that the coded something? What a strange name.

    Better not be a US exclusive like re:chain of memories. I really wanted to play that!
