The fifth installment in the Kingdom Hearts series, Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days, is an action role-playing game for the Nintendo DS developed by h.a.n.d. inc. and Square-Enix (in collaboration with Disney Interactive Studios). The 2009 game takes place parallel to the end of the original Kingdom Hearts game and its sequel, Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories. The game was directed by Tetsuya Nomura, with music composed by Yoko Shimomura. It is the first game in the Kingdom Hearts series to feature multiplayer gameplay, including both cooperative and competitive modes.
The plot of Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days revolves around Roxas, a “Nobody” created when Sora (the protagonist of the series) was turned into a Heartless in the original Kingdom Hearts game. Because of his connection to Sora, Roxas is also able to wield a legendary Keyblade weapon to battle creatures of the darkness. Roxas carries out missions as a member of Organization XIII, a group of Nobodies who seek to become complete beings by creating the legendary Kingdom Hearts.
Roxas develops friendships with Axel and Xion, other members of Organization XIII, and the trio bond over enjoying sea-salt ice cream atop the Twilight Town clock tower frequently. Roxas and Xion begin to question their identities and their place in the organization, causing a series of events that will ultimately lead into the story of Kingdom Hearts II.
Critics heavily praised the graphics of Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days upon its release. The game sold over 1.2 million copies within its first year of release and won all 7 awards it was nominated for in the Nintendo Power 2009 awards. A series of light novels and manga based on the game was released, and its cinematic scenes were recreated in high definition as part of the Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix compilation.
