While Square Enix has yet to announce the massively hyped Final Fantasy VII remake, they have certainly astounded the crowds at this years Tokyo Game Show with several other games, including three new titles in the Kingdom Hearts series.

The new games have been developed exclusively for handheld and mobile devices: Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep for the PlayStation Portable, Kingdom Hearts: 358/2 Days for the DS, and Kingdom Hearts: Coded for mobile phones.

Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep is a single-player adventure title, which looks similar to the Kingdom Hearts games on the PS2, but is not the third in the series. The main character was not named, and is thought to be Zack from the Final Fantasy VII/Crisis Core games.

Kingdom Hearts: 358/2 Days is a 3d action game with up to four-player co-op. The main protagonist is Roxas from KH2, and will feature members of Organization XIII in multiplayer.

Kingdom Hearts: Coded will likely be limited to Japanese cell phones, and will revolve around the characters from Kingdom Hearts. This title is looking to take place between the first and second titles from the PS2.

Each game has been said to have a "Time" theme, with Birth by Sleep being set in the "distant past," 358/2 Days is "time of the other side," and Code being "time has gone by."

We can't wait to hear more on each of these titles, and will continue to provide updates as they become available.
