Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep’s vague release window has finally been shattered by a concrete release date: September 7, 2010. Along with that sorta-not-really newsish item, Square Enix and Disney have released a new trailer featuring characters previously unseen to the series (See our custom trailer grabs below.)
The PSP prequel will also lanuch with a shiny new Limited Edition bundle featuring:
-"Mystic Silver" PSP-3000
-Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep UMD
-4GB Memory Stick PRO DUO
-Movie TBA (We're guessing it starts with "Pirates")
ALSO, if you head to Square-Enix's official Birth by Sleep site, click WATCH THE TRAILER, then enter the newly announced release date, you'll get a free and exclusive Kingdom Hearts PSP theme!

Now, Cinderella has figured prominently into the press materials thus far, but you’ll also get a glimpse of gameplay configured around the Disney film that started it all, Snow White. You can see today's official shots right here, but I wouldn't be GR's resident Disney nerd if I didn't pull my own from today's trailer.

Above: Not TRON, actually. It's a boss fight with the Man in the Mirror, after repeatedly asking him to change his ways
Above: Obviously, that's a dead Snow White. And we all know how to bring her corpse back to life, right? Which brings up the question: What's Aqua doing there?! DURHURRHURRgirlzkissinHURR
