Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days E3 2009 Hands-On Preview

Square Enix's Tetsuya Nomura is an extremely busy man. Working on huge project after huge project, it seems like he hasn't been able to take a deep breath since his critically acclaimed work on Final Fantasy VII. Kingdom Hearts fans, while pleased that they'll be getting 358/2 Days for Nintendo DS and Birth by Sleep for Sony PSP, have been clamoring for details on a true sequel. In a recent interview with GoNintendo, Nomura said that he really hasn't thought about it (much):

"Right now I’m busy with Birth by Sleep and FF13: Versus, let’s think about the future plans of Kingdom Hearts slowly. But the next Kingdom Hearts is not restricted to Kingdom Hearts 3. However it won’t be a side story, but an authentic addition. Separate from that, I’m thinking on the things of Kingdom Hearts 3."

Working on two major games is an acceptable excuse...I suppose. Personally, I like that Square Enix is expanding on the Kingdom Hearts' universe and filling in details with prequels and side stories. It helps explain some of the convoluted details that were, perhaps, lost in translation. Speaking of which, Nomura revealed the meaning behind the title 358/2 Days. Hit the break to find out!

"The meaning of 358/2 Days refers to the passing of 358 days of 2 people. I wanted people to imagine it’s meaning in various ways."

I'm pretty sure he also enjoyed confusing people and reading silly theories on what the actual meaning was. Nomura is funny like that.

From comments I've read here before, I know that quite a few of you are anxious for Kingdom Hearts 3. Are you disappointed that the game hasn't been fully conceptualized yet?
