    August 05, 2002 - Kingdom Hearts, the much-anticipated action-RPG collaboration between Square and Disney, will ship in the United States on September 17, Square announced today. In addition, Square also indicated that the American version of the game will include added game features not found in the Japanese version: multiple levels of difficulty (Normal and Expert) and new bosses, including an appearance by Final Fantasy VII's Sephiroth.
    "Kingdom Hearts will deliver a unique interactive gaming experience that melds Square and Disney entertainment legacies of animation, design, story-telling and character development," said Jun Iwasaki, president of Square Electronic Arts. "Kingdom Hearts represents a truly unique role-playing game experience, combining more than 100 Disney characters and new and familiar Disney worlds in one game. We are also excited to offer new elements in the North American version that are not available in the Japanese version of the game. "

    Wow, much sooner than I expected. Looking forward to this, but I probably won't get it until Christmas anyway.

    I'm very excited about this one. I love Square's action RPG. I remember Secret of Mana fondly...

    pretty high praise review here
    I also love this line from the following review...
    The graphics improve incrementally, culminating in the fruit-pastel colour-explosions of Never Land and Atlanta - home of The Little Mermaid.

    EGM gave it straight 8.5s. That's good, but not great. I'm buying it, no matter what.

    I saw the EGM review too. Their only two complaints are akward battle controls and they don't like the mini game space ship thing. Even so this game is soo mine.

    This winter or when the PS2 price drops again, whichever comes first ... Kingdom Hearts along with Rygar WILL cause me to buy a PS2.
