We were hoping to get details on the next Kingdom Hearts project at this event, but unexpectedly, Square Enix has decided not to release anything. A brief new trailer was shown that's basically incomprehensible to anyone that's not a KH superfan. It depicted a seemingly unconscious Sora flying through the air, a giant field filled with dozens of keyblades, and mysterious figures in really cool armor - who were they? We have a hunch that one was an adult Sora, but we could be completely crazy so
Square Enix has previously revealed that it won't be churning out a full-on Kingdom Hearts III any time soon, but according to Square Enix man Tetsuya Nomura the next title is going to be a spin-off of sorts - likely heading to PSP, DS or mobile platforms.
"It is not Kingdom Hearts III, but it is an anecdote... I want to explain what Mickey did in the World of Darkness, and also how he got his keyblade," Nomura told Famitsu.
"I want to make this [new project] slightly different from the
To be honest, youre going to have to be a real King of Fighters fan to get the most out of this. A conversion of the original coin-op game, this throws in a lot of stuff - 11 teams, 47 characters (including three new ‘uns), three new abilities and the, er, Judgement System, whatever that is - and much emphasis on the continuing
It's the end of another great year for gamers. Two new systems launched. Two handhelds waged bloody battle. And next gen gaming got a big kick in the pants - thanks to a year of lonely rule by the Xbox 360. PC gaming fought fire with nukes, waging its battle against the console-based onslaught. In short, it ruled.
How do we handle this? We're handing out our gleaming Platinum Chalice to those games and systems which gave us the business. No boring list of 37 different strategy games, divided
A trio of trademark applications have appeared in Japan rekindling hope that the Katamari series may make a return. For last month developer Namco Bandai registered three new names: Beautiful Katamari Damacy, Katamari Damacy Tres Bien and Katamari Damacy-kun.
And while our hopes have been raised again, the names can't be taken as proof of the existence of new games because applications can also cover potential TV shows, movies, fluffy dolls, sweets and just about anything

To celebrate the UK launch of Kingdom Hearts II, we've teamed up with Square Enix and Piggyback Interactive to offer five lucky winners a copy of the PS2 game and the official strategy guide each.
Kingdom Hearts II is the sequel to Square Enix and Disney's beautiful (and massive) RPG collaboration, which combines characters from the Final Fantasy series of games with characters and locations from many of Disney's famous movies. We gave the game 9/10 in our review.
While Karaoke Revolution Presents: American Idol was first announced back in May, we didn't get a real glimpse of the game until today. For the first time (since the disastrously awful American Idol rhythm game, anyway), fans of the TV show will be able to go from auditions to finals, singing to impress Simon Cowell and Randy Jackson (but not Paula Abdul, strangely) while competing to become the next semi-talented performer contractually obligated to sing in Ford
The best thing about Kingdom Hearts II isn't just that that it's a heck of a lot of fun to play. Nope, the best thing is how it puts dozens of your favorite characters into a blender and pushes "frappe." From Disney movies you still sing along with to the role-playing classics of Square Enix's past years, the worlds of Kingdom Hearts II are packed with
Tetsuya Nomura, director of Kingdom Hearts II, revealed at the game's launch party that a further Kingdom Hearts is in the pipeline. KHII has only just reached American shores, but the game has performed so well in Japan on PS2 that mentions of a follow-up aren't so much wishful thinking as obligation.
Even so, Nomura wouldn't say much except that he has "a new idea" for the series. The next game in the franchise likely won't be a direct sequel, but - judging by Nomura's vague comments - one

Tetsuya Nomura, director of Kingdom Hearts II, has revealed that a further Kingdom game is in the pipeline. KHII has only just reached American shores - while the date of the UK release remains unclear - but the game has performed so well in Japan on PS2 that mentions of a follow-up aren't so much wishful thinking as obligation.
The next game in the franchise isn't a direct continuation of the recent sequel, but, according to Nomura's plans, one that will take place
