Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep, the latest entry in Square Enix’s Disney action-RPG crossover, has hit store shelves. The PSP-exclusive prequel is the fifth installment and provides fans with a glimpse of the universe before Sora and company.
The story will unfold through the eyes of three different characters: Terra, Ventus, and Aqua. In addition to new combat features – command styles, command decks, shotlocks, and dimension links – several new Disney characters and locations will also make their debut, including Sleeping Beauty’s Enchanted Dominion, the Dwarf Woodlands from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, and Deep Space from Lilo and Stitch. Characters will be brought to life by an array of voice talent that includes Mark Hamill, Leonard Nimoy, and James Woods.
A new Birth by Sleep-themed PSP Entertainment Pack is also available. The GameStop-exclusive bundle will include a “Mystic Silver” PSP-3000 system, Birth by Sleep on UMD, a 50-song voucher for Sony MusicPass, and a 4GB Memory Stick PRO Duo. The pack is going for $199.99 while Birth by Sleep carries a suggested retail price of $39.99.
