It may seem like an unlikely source for video game news, but pop singer Jesse McCartney's Twitter
account has confirmed the localization of Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep
. Square Enix hasn't announced a US release for the PSP prequel, but considering the franchise's penchant for making money
, it certainly was never in doubt.
Birth by Sleep
would be McCartney's third foray into the Kingdom Hearts
universe, having previously voiced Roxas in Kingdom Hearts II
and 358/2 Days
. Kingdom Hearts Union
suggests that McCartney may be voicing Birth By Sleep
's "new" character, Ventus (pictured, right) -- y'know, the one that looks exactly
like Roxas (pictured, left).
