The story is told from the perspective of Roxas, the nobody of Sora, the protagonist of the first three games. It Chronicles Roxas’s daily life in Organization XIII and his relationship with fellow Organization members Axel and Xion. “358/2 Days” is a code that is explained after the player progresses through the game’s single player storyline.
It features 3D graphics, and single and multiplayer modes of play. The game was announced at the 2007 Tokyo Game Show to be released in Japan; a North American release as well as a European release were later confirmed.

The game launched in Japan on May 30, 2009, in North America on September 29, 2009 and in Europe on October 9, 2009.
Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days features the action role-playing game style of the previous games in the series.To accomplish this, the game makes minimal use of the system’s touch screen functionality. The game includes single player and multiplayer modes of play. The single player mode is story-based, focused on Disney worlds from past games, and progresses in days.In single player mode, the player controls Roxas, the game’s main protagonist, who is accompanied by other Organization XIII members.The two modes are linked in that character growth is shared between them.
Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days features a new gameplay mechanic known as the panel system which involves the customization of the character’s levels, items, equipment, and abilities. For example, certain magic spells cannot be used if their corresponding panels aren’t equipped, but can be used consecutively if multiple are attached. Weapons are also equipped using panels. There are also “Link Panels”, which occupy multiple slots, but can be combined with other panels to form new or stronger abilities.
Limit Breaks, which previously featured in Square’s Final Fantasy series, can be activated once the character’s health drops below a certain level, indicated by a yellow health bar. Each character has his own unique abilities during Limit Breaks which are usually more powerful than normal attacks, and can attack more enemies at the same time. The second stage of a Final Limit is normally a different or powered-up version of the first, and begins at the point where the white line (starting at the high end of the yellow portion of the HP bar) meets top dead center. For example, Roxas shoots out pillars of light once the line begins to rebound.
Like the other games in Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days , the player progresses through a collection of various worlds, based on various locales from the Disney animated features canon: Agrabah from Aladdin; the Beast’s Castle from Beauty and the Beast; Olympus Coliseum from Hercules; Halloween Town from The Nightmare Before Christmas; Wonderland from Alice in Wonderland; and Never Land from Peter Pan (featuring a string of islands new to the series rather than Captain Hook’s pirate ship and Big Ben from the first game). Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days also features worlds created specifically for the series by Square Enix. The most prominent world is The World That Never Was, which first appeared in the secret ending of Kingdom Hearts and serves as the game’s main hub, followed by Twilight Town, a frequently-explored locale. Castle Oblivion and Destiny Islands also appear in cutscenes.
