Kingdom Hearts novels: C'mon Disney, where are they?
There has been quite the hubbub around the Kingdom Hearts fandom about two upcoming novelizations of the popular video game. (KH fans need to have something to get excited about since KH3 is but a rumor at this point.) Disney Press was supposed to have released them in August 2007 but eager fans, many who had pre-ordered the books, have been told by Barnes & Noble that the release date has been pushed back to July 2008. July 2008! Another year??
Amazon, Borders and the B&N websites still have August 2007 as the release date, but only the option to pre-order is available.
All I've heard is speculation as to what the novels will be about ... most likely centering around the plot in Kingdom Hearts II and hopefully with more background information on Organization XIII. I also hope they get to cover scenes that didn't make it into the video game.
The first novel is called Kingdom Hearts: The First Door and the second is Kingdom Hearts: Darkness Within.
Anticipation! I want to get my hands on these already! :)
