Voice Of Roxas Tweets Kingdom Hearts PSP Localization

Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep hits Japanese PlayStation Portables January 9, but so far Square Enix has been mum on a US release date. Luckily, American voice actors sometimes Twitter their exploits, which gives us KH fans some hope.

Jesse McCartney, the voice behind Roxas in Kingdom Hearts II and the recent Kingdom Hearts: 358/2 Days on the Nintendo DS tweeted two days ago: "Recording yet another Kingdom Hearts Game. All you Gamers eat your heart out! Man what a process tho. First recordin was in 2005 for game 1."

Looks like McCartney is a little confused about the order of Kingdom Hearts games. The first game — which he wasn't involved with — came out in the US in 2002, followed by Chain of Memories on the Gameboy Advance in 2004. His angst-filled performance in Kingdom Hearts II didn't happen 'til 2005, making it the third game in the series.

Miscount aside, as long as there's some evidence that Birth By Sleep is making its way Stateside, KH fan ought to rejoice. And perhaps stalk McCartney's Twitter feed for more info.

P.S. I consider it a forgone conclusion that McCartney is voicing Ventus, the Roxas lookalike in Birth By Sleep, because the Japanese voice actor who played Roxas also played Ventus and Square is pretty good about keeping the cast consistent with the exception of Ansem's voice. Feel free to argue the point the comments.

    I'm just stoked that Birth by Sleep is coming to English PSPs everywhere. Should be sick of Dissidia by that point, hopefully.

      Here's hoping I don't get sick of Dissidia ever :D
      I've got over 210 hours playtime, and still going strong; will probably slow down once i get all the reports :P

      But yeah, Birth by Sleep seems mad, can't wait ^_^

        Dayum 210 hours? And I thought my 80 something were a lot...
        But man I love that game...so awesome.
        You reckon there'll be a Dissidia 2 with other characters (ie non main characters) playable?
        Imagine Dissidia with Zell and Barrett and Balthier etc...

    I love the game beacuse of Roxas. He is so Awesome! And I agree with you @Nath

    KH 358/2 Days ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!
