What the hell is Goofy? Well, for one thing, he's a character in an RPG from Square Enix. The first Kingdom Hearts definitely gained some fans (hello Illusion). This sequel should please those fans to no end and will probably also garner even more gamer's appreciation. In the Australasian territories Ubisoft have recently become the RPG pimps and, therefore, one of my favourite publishers.
As both an RPG and animation geek, I look forward to reviewing Kingdom Hearts II. I only wish it allowed you to kick the crap out of Mickey, because that mouse really gets on my nerves for some reason. Donald Duck is way cooler- I love how he cracks the shits at everyone. And just look at his threads! It takes one gutsy duck to get around in an outfit like that.
To see the Press Release and a couple of screens, look below right.....now!
UBISOFT AND SQUARE ENIX TEAM UP TO DISTRIBUTE KINGDOM HEARTS® II
Ubisoft to distribute the RPG in spring (ANZ) 2006 across selected PAL territories
Ubisoft, one of the world's largest video game publishers, announces that it has entered a distribution agreement with Square Enix Ltd. to bring KINGDOM HEARTS® II to Australia, New Zealand, France, Benelux and the Nordic territories including Iceland.

The world of KINGDOM HEARTS joins classic Disney characters and worlds together with characters and locations created by Square Enix®. The result is an immensely rich and original universe that appeals to fans around the world.
