LOS ANGELES--As part of Nintendo's 2009 Electronic Entertainment Expo press conference yesterday, the publisher shuffled out a number of role-playing games headed to the Wii and DS over the next 12 to 18 months. Along with announcing Mario and Luigi RPG: Bowser's Inside Story and Golden Sun for the best-selling portable, Nintendo also said that Kingdom Hearts 358/2 from Square Enix would arrive for the DS in North America on September 29.
358/2 Days is set between the events of Kingdom Hearts and Kingdom Hearts 2. The game follows KH2 character Roxas while he was a member of Organization XIII, and as is the series' trademark, it will take place across a wide variety of Disney universes. 358/2 Days will also introduce a multiplayer mode to the series, allowing four players to join up together locally.
