Seven Minutes Long Birth by Sleep Trailer

This is probably the best trailer I have watched for a PSP game this year and it comes from Square Enix for Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep. The trailer is up-to-date with the latest mag reports, some even say it includes scenes from the secret movie viewable once you cleared the game. Again, January 9th is the Japanese release date.

Box Art: Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep

Kingdom Hearts: Birth by SleepNot exactly new as the version without CERO rating has been around for quite some time but this is final box art for Square Enix’s Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep (click for ultra large version). Note that the PlayStation Network logo (like the one on Phantasy Star Portable 2‘s box art) is no where to be seen, which means we can’t save on shipping and download it off the Japanese PSN. Really unfortunate and something that result in the really poor sales of PSP go. Those who can read Japanese (or if you don’t mind playing the game with guides) can check out Play-Asia () or YesAsia ($67.99) for pre-orders. The release date again is January 9th in Japan.
