Coded Main Idea The game is mainly about Sora and Mickey. After finding an entry in his journal that he didn’t write, “we must return to free them from their torment,” Jiminy confronts King Mickey about it and so he digitizes the contents (along with himself and Sora), and they go and investigate. Characters Kingdom Hearts Coded as seen, it shows Sora, Mickey and Jiminy make an appearance. Other old favourites such as Donald, Goofy and Pluto, etc will also return. Time Setting Kingdom Hearts Coded takes place after Kingdom Hearts 2. Console Kingdom Hearts Coded will come out for the mobile phone; confirmed by TGS 2007. Gameplay Half puzzle game, half action/RPG. There will also be something called ‘Debugging mode’ in Coded, and basically this means that Sora will confront bugs (the type found in your computer, not insects) when he approaches normal enemies. Sora will need to clear the bugs (that look like blocks) in order to fight. We have already seen a screenshot of this. The bugs also have other purposes too. They can be used to help Sora get higher up, and they can be used in puzzle games. Trivia • Coded is considered to be the brother of Agito XIII. • Nomura wanted to make it a playground for the fans. • This game will clarify where Riku and the King was during Kingdom Hearts 1. • The scene of Riku in Neverland is to show what Riku was thinking before he kidnapped Kairi. • Sora can glide in Coded. • The heartless have invaded the data, however they are not bugs. • Upgrade Points (VP) can be used to help Sora become stronger, and these are done by bug eliminatin and heartless destroyed. Each heartless is worth 10 points. • Debugs have a certain timelimit, if you fail to eliminate the bug then you can attempt again with other debugging methods. • The scene showing Traverse Town where Sora meets Donald and Goofy will be focusing on what Pluto did during that time. • Kingdom Hearts: Coded was the first game of the trio to be given a release date. It is to go out Winter 2008 in Japan, along with Kingdom Hearts: 358 Days / 2. Trailer Explanation By Famitsu: When the video begins, we are introduced with a series of images, followed by the words "Kingdom Hearts: New Concepts and Game Titles." Right after this, the ending to Kingdom Hearts 2 plays, followed by the phrases "The secret ending has been dealt with, and the worlds extend once again" and "flow". The screen fades back in to Jiminy Cricket and the phrase "Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories". He is peering into his journal, noticing a phrase he cannot remember writing. It reads "You need to return, to heal the wounds". This phrase seems to alert Jiminy in some way, as he runs off to report the finding to King Mickey. The king is startled by the discovery, but only replies with "Only he is the one who can solve it." We fade in and out to Sora standing on the beach at Destiny Islands. He is wearing his Kingdom Hearts 1 style clothing, but he is only shown as computer data being transmitted. When the image of Sora dissapears, a battle scene commences. As Sora is movning blocks around to finsish a puzzle game, heartless are attacking from all angles. The gameplay mecahnics seem very odd. After the puzzle is finished, a command called "Debugging" appears on the screen. After being activated, Sora moves extremely quickly and then vanishes. The last scene includes Sora aned Mickey in Traverse Town. Mickey says to no one in particular "I was here on that day." and "Let's speak truly". We are then presented with the name of the game: Kingdom Hearts: Coded.
