When it was announced for Japan, Square Enix set Kingdom Hearts Re:coded for fall, and the Nintendo DS game’s release is right on target.

Kingdom Hearts Re:coded appeared in V-Jump and an info box has the game’s release date, October 7. Square Enix unveiled Kingdom Hearts Re:coded at E3, but didn’t set a release date for North America.

H.a.n.d., the makers of Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days, are developing the remake. Yes, remake. Kingdom Hearts Re:coded adds elements from Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep’s battle system to a 2009 mobile phone game where a digital version of Sora explores Jiminy Cricket’s computer bug-filled journal.
