Thanks for being patient guys! I’ve been working on the interview and hopefully will post part of it soon. In the mean time, welcome gold_panner to HEARTSTATION.ORG! I’m so grateful to have her help around here and already she’s begun working hard. She’s finished translating the 5th chapter of the Kingdom Hearts II: Short Stories Vol.2 Axel — Seven Days and the page has been updated to include it, so please go take a read!
A few days ago scans from Famitsu featuring Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days were uploaded and we’re half way through them. I did the editing and my new partner gold_panner did the translating on the scans, please enjoy reading them!
In other news, Japanese bloggers like Arika-san from the Light in Chaos and Akisame-san from the Room of Sleep have mentioned a new trailer for Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days playing in storefronts that seems based on the trailer played at Jump Festa 2009. Here are are some of the details they shared:
- Xion was the only member not appearing in the multiplayer select screen
- Donald and Goofy made appearances
- The style graphics have changed since Jump Festa like:
- The limit gauge
- At the Castle That Never Was, Xion picks up a seashell like that of Destiny Island and puts it to her ear, saying she can hear the sounds of the ocean
- In the back alley of Twilight Town, Hayner, Pence, and Olette gather at the side of Axel and Roxas
- Axel and Xion talk in the Castle of Oblivion, was Roxas there too?
- At the Castle That Never Was, Xion hangs her head low and says, “I… I’m not me..?”
- In the white room of the mansion in Twilight Town, Xion faces Namine and asks, “What should I do?”
- Xion appears to be crying in her bed at the Castle That Never Was
- Xion and Axel appear to be be looking for something on a computer then they both collapse
- Only Xion rises and leaves Axel behind
- Xion places a pebble/shell beside Roxas who is sleeping and then leaves silently
- After that, a scene where Xion encounters and speaks with Riku in Twilight Town
Interesting stuff! Hopefully the trailer will leak soon. Keep looking forward to more updates!
