Rumor: Kingdom Hearts: Coded Coming To PSP In 2009
Sometimes, it can be very difficult to tell which Square-Enix games are going where, especially when it comes to the Kingdom Hearts franchise. The veteran RPG publisher has issued so many different KH titles and spin-offs, it's tough to keep track of all the proceedings. Therefore, when a rumor comes around like this, we just shrug our shoulders and say, "yeah, maybe. Who knows?"
For now, Kingdom Hearts: Coded is only a mobile phone title (no, we have no idea why they continue to make those), but according to European game site PS3Life, the title is also coming to the PSP. Supposedly, they're focusing on other more current titles in the hopper for now, which is why Square-Enix hasn't revealed this as truth. Perhaps we'll get the announcement at the Tokyo Game Show next month, and if we do, it's just another reason to own Sony's sleek handheld. It already has plenty of great RPGs in its library, and while Square-Enix has been throwing a lot of love towards the DS, the PSP got Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII earlier this year. That was arguably the biggest title in the portable's short history so far, and something like Kingdom Hearts: Coded could be big as well. Of course, we would expect a more enhanced version on the PSP; owners won't want the same thing mobile phone users played, right?
Anyway, considering Square-Enix isn't in the business of making game announcements on a frequent basis, we'll have to wait until TGS 2008. They usually wait for big shows to release any facts and details concerning their projects, so for now, this is nothing but an intriguing rumor.
