OPXion4EverIcon.png [probably butchered] YGOATS quote aside... So there hasn't been an offical North American Re:coded guide, right? Well, apparently over in Japan there was a little guide released titled "Kingdom Hearts Re:coded Power of Friendship Guide." click I haven't been able to find much information about the book, but here's a brief summary of what I've gathered:
  • Entire book is in Japanese (this is redundant, book released in Japan = Japanese)
  • Cost is similar to costs of other guidebooks. click
  • Explains: "how to use various systems, some communication mode, strategy maps, area and boss battle system thoroughly explained, abilties, technical command, and accessories, various data on enemies." [see link below]
  • Benefits: "Special poster: put the two elements useful strategy, with a special poster! The front surface, which enhances the capability of Sora "Matrix" status on large! In addition to the back surface, the floor map that appears on a list system in the area!" click
  • Covers all seven worlds.
  • Includes: info. on game systems and how they work, detailed boss and attendant battles, database of items/weapons/Keyblades/and more, series map of levels, special Re:coded poster is attached in the book.

I don't know if this is a beginner's book that we should ignore, or an actual guidebook we should look into. Will Square even release a guide for Re:coded, or will they simple ignore the remakes guides as they did with Re:CoM?

So, what do you guys think? Should we create the page or no?

And before you state "We don't cover everything Kingdom Hearts released in the world," understand this: You might be right, but we make a strong attempt to cover anything [canon] Kingdom Hearts. Furthermore, we covered a good number of them- why not add one more?

I myself am a bit hesistant to create the article due to it's short amount of information. However, if we [the Wiki] can use this to help our Wiki goal, then, by George, let's do it! Thoughts?

  1. Whose book is it? Square Enix, or somebody else?
  2. How is it compared to the Re:coded Ultimania? (Do we even know?)

Since we cover the Bradygames guides, which, let's face it, are mostly crappy, I don't see why we shouldn't cover this. Somehow.

OPXion4EverIcon.png Answers:
  1. The guide was released on October 8, 2010- the day after Re:coded was released in Japan. The way I see it, it's a Square Enix promo.
  2. Seems this is a water-downed version of the Ultimania, created for fans of the game, but not hard-core fans who want everything the ultimania packs.
