This article is just as much about the Special Edition as it is a reminder…don't you dare forget that this long-awaited RPG is coming very soon!
Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep is set to be released in North America on September 7 and in Europe on September 10. Now, the source in question only mentions this Special Edition for Europe, but we'd like to assume it's coming here, too. If you want to drop a few extra bucks, you can nab this nifty package, which features two exclusive items: Birth by Sleep art prints, and a 48-page hardcover book called, "The Art of Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep." This could be very worthwhile if you're a big fan of the ongoing franchise, and if you treasure your growing PSP collection. Everyone keeps hoping for a Kingdom Hearts III announcement for the PS3 but at this point, it's probably safe to assume that if such a game is in the works, it probably won't be exclusive to Sony's machine. Square-Enix just doesn't do that, anymore (unless they stick with the Final Fantasy Versus XIII philosophy for the third Kingdom Hearts ). At any rate, Birth by Sleep could very well be one of the best portable titles to date.
