    Development

    Square Enix revealed at the 2007 Tokyo Game Show that a new and unique installment of the Kingdom Hearts series would go on sale exclusively for Nintendo DS. In 358/2 Days, players can learn more about Roxas' time spent in Organization XIII by engaging in exciting single or multiplayer modes. Many unresolved answers so far about Roxas' life (while Sora slept for a year) will be explored offering Kingdom Hearts fans a totally new way to enjoy the series on various Disney worlds. In December 2008, it was announced that the game would be released to all audiences, as well as in Europe and the rest of the PAL regions.



    History

    When Sora becomes a Heartless himself to free his friend Kairi's heart in KH 1, his Nobody, Roxas, is also born. However, unlike the rest of the Nobodies, Roxas retains a human body and remembers little bits of his past life as Sora. As soon as Roxas is found by Xemnas, the leader of Organization XIII, he is recruited as its thirteenth member. Every day he is sent on missions to other worlds, both accompanied by his other members and alone, to kill the Heartless, freeing stolen hearts and achieving the goal of the Organization which is to invoke Kingdom Hearts and become complete beings. While in the Organization, he is mentored by Axel, and they quickly become friends. Shortly after the incorporation of Roxas, a fourteenth member appears: Xion, who knows nothing about his past and, like Roxas, can also wield the keyblade, and little by little they begin to know more and form a trio. of friends.



    However, different events that cause the group to disperse begin to occur. DiZ and Naminé watch Sora's progress of remembering his lost memories in "Chain of Memories". Roxas begins to wonder why he can wield the Keyblade and begins to doubt about the Organization's goals. Xion, meanwhile, is confused after an encounter with Riku, who asks who she is and why she wields the keyblade, and begins to separate from her friends. Soon Xion's desire to discover her origin will cause her to abandon Axel and Roxas, turning hostile to them when they try to stop her.

    A short time later, Xion discovers the truth about her: she is an imperfect replica of Sora, created from his memories by Vexen on Xemnas' orders as a "Plan B" in case Roxas, who the Organization was trying to exploit, turns out to be of no use. Furthermore, Naminé's attempts to remind Sora of his memories, not only affect Roxas, but also Xion to the point of becoming, physically the same as him, absorbing power from Roxas and gaining it herself. Xion, helped by Riku and Naminé, decides to sacrifice herself to return the memories to Sora, at the cost of no one remembering her. To do this, he decides to confront Roxas because he also harbors some memories necessary for Sora to wake up. After a very hard battle, passing through different worlds and forms, Xion is defeated by Roxas. Although at first Roxas forgets about her, when he sees her dying his memories are reactivated and tears come to him at the same time that Xion dies, but not before asking him to stop Xemnas and release Kingdom Hearts.


    Filled with anger at Xion's death and his unsolved questions, Roxas decides to take on Organization XIII on his own, leaving Axel on the sidelines. He meets Riku and they fight. When he is almost defeated, he draws on the power of darkness that is in his heart, giving him the power to defeat Roxas, but also giving him the appearance of Ansem, which is linked to his darkness. Riku and DiZ place Roxas in the virtual "Twilight Town" in such a way that he can merge with Sora, setting the scene already known in "Kingdom Hearts II".

    • Xigbar (シ ッ グ バ ー): He is number II of Organization XIII, nicknamed "The Sniper" because he uses laser guns, and he was one of Ansem the Wise's assistants. Its name comes from Braig.
    • Demyx (デ ミ ッ ク ス): He is member IX of Organization XIII, nicknamed "The Melodious Nocturnal" because he uses a sitar as a weapon.

    • Xion (シ オ ン): She is the XIV member of Organization XIII. It can be controlled in multiplayer. You can use a keyblade. Although Riku tells him that it is false.

    • Riku (リ ク): He was Sora's best friend, but they parted ways when he was sucked into darkness by Maleficent's persuasion. This fall to the "dark side" is symbolized with a blindfold that covers his eyes. Symbolizing: "Eyes that do not see, heart that does not feel"

    • When Roxas is knocked unconscious, Xenmas says "so sleep has taken over you again" referring to Ventus sleeping in the Chamber of Awakening.
