''Kingdom Hearts: 358/2 Days'' (said as ''Three-Five-Eight Days Over Two'') is the [[WordSaladTitle oddly named]] fourth offering in the ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'' series. It is an {{interquel}}, taking place between ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsI'' and ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'' and overlapping ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsChainOfMemories'' at a few points. As the name suggests, the game takes place over the course of nearly a year.

''Kingdom Hearts: 358/2 Days'' (said as ''Three-Five-Eight Days Over Two'') is the [[WordSaladTitle oddly named]] fourth offering in the ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'' series.series, released on the UsefulNotes/NintendoDS in 2009. It is an {{interquel}}, taking place between ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsI'' and ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'' and overlapping ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsChainOfMemories'' at a few points. As the name suggests, the game takes place over the course of nearly a year.



A departure for the series, ''358/2 Days'' stars Roxas, Sora's Nobody introduced in ''II'', and his life as part of the unscrupulous Organization XIII. It also introduces Xion, a previously unmentioned 14th member that can also use the Keyblade and has an appearance similar to Kairi, Sora's LoveInterest. Due to game's seeming lack of a central antagonist, it largely focuses on developing Roxas' friendship with Axel and Xion and characterizing the other Organization members.

The game uses an ActionRPG system very similar to the console games, but modified for the portable format. Rather than simply exploring worlds in one go, Roxas is sent on various missions by the Organization that require frequent visitations, with the plot unfolding as the missions are undertaken. There's also a local multiplayer option that allows up to 4 players to take on missions together as any Organization XIII member (and some {{Secret Character}}s) while competing for points, giving it the largest playable cast in the series.

* RetGone: [[spoiler:Once Xion is destroyed, everybody who knew about her forget she ever existed because. The reason this happens is explained as her existence being based off of Sora's memories, so once she's gone the memories will go back to him and any trace of her will disappear.]]

** If Luxord has the Casual Gear equipped, he wields a "deck" of CDs called "Finest Fantasy 13". [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII Take a wild guess what the name sounds like?...]]
