We get to check out images of the main character, who looks quite a bit like Cloud's counterpart, Zack. There's also Roxas, a counterpart for Sora. See, we're already stretching to make connections, like saying this story probably takes place in an alternate world or something. We get to check out profiles of other new characters, like a blue-haired girl, a masked person, and a creepy old dude! The game, visually, is very nice as expected, but since we can't read Japanese, most of the information is left to any kind readers willing to translate as a comment. We'll keep you posted as details emerge.

This is the first KH game I've been excited about. I'm going to go off on a limb and say that it looks BETTER than Crisis Core or (dare I?) GoW. I think that CC, amazing as it is, was just a warmup for the Ol' Boys at SE. I hope this improves upon the Action RPG formula.
It also makes me hopeful of a Level 5 Action RPG on PSP; Dark Cloud 3/2.5, Rouge Galaxy, a new proprietary, WKS Portable... Ah, the possibilities.

Looks great. Wouldn't be surprised if this was running on the same engine as Crisis Core. They've invested in the tech, all that's left to do is print money.

My Japanese translation skills are horrible, but here's what the scan says about the blue-haired girl (what I can figure out):
Although we cannot be certain of her appearance, the girl in the illustration seems to be one of the protagonists. Nothing is known of her costume or her weapons, nor her relationship to Tera or Ven.

Hey drew, for future reference at least put up a Spoiler Warning so that people who don't want to know about the characters until the game is out don't have to. Just for the future.
And great find PSP Fanboy!

That would be sweet.
The graphics look awesome, they even look like they might be better than CC's.

The main character reminds me of Sasuke. Especially the picture with the lightning sword thing that makes him look like he's doing a chidori. Haha.

I like the feel of this game so far. Darker tone, kick-ass looking keyblade, no disney characters in your party... and it's portable. Awesome.

The girl's name is Aqua.
You'll see her in a trailer when you finish Kingdom Hearts II completely.
