Here is a bit of info for YOU!
» Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep, Tetsuya Nomura interview. The latest issue of Dengeki PlayStation magazine has included an interview with the director of the Kingdom Hearts series, Tetsuya Nomura. Here, Nomura discusses the English version of Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep, revealing some of the game's additions. Kingdom Hearts Media have translated the interview, which can be read below.
Q: The North American version of BBS is to be released soon? A: Yes, it will be released on September 7. Even though we've added many things, the story has changed a little. Mark Hamill will be voicing Master Eraqus, and the voice of Master Xehanort is Leonard Nimoy, from Star Trek. A new mysterious enemy has been added. It's terribly strong, so winning is an achievement. You meet it twice, and the debugger had to try twenty times before defeating it once.
Q: Is it stronger than the Vanitas' Sentiment? A: We took a survey, and some people thought it was a little stronger than the Vanitas Sentiment, but others thought it was far stronger. Like the Lingering Sentiment of KH2FM+, its attacks are hard to predict, unlike Vanitas' Sentiment, which has movements that are fairly easy to read. The new enemy will use nefarious tricks.
Q: Is the new character also involved with the story? A: As with the Lingering Sentiment, at the time of KHBBS I can't reveal that.
Q: And the other major changes? A: Mega Flare proved too strong and violent, so we've weakened that ability. In addition, there were complaints about the reward for defeating Vanitas' Sentiment, so you will now receive his Keyblade as a prize. Such a modification is a fun novelty that fits well in KH tradition.
Q: Is there a new secret movie? A: No, sadly there is not, because we didn't have additional time. Instead, look to Re:coded to prepare you for the secret movie. Please look forward to that, as NA gets no mobile content. We considered many things, including KH:Days in the making of the secret movie.--Edgeshadow

So this doesn't devolve into an edit war, here is the source for it: http://www.ff-reunion.net/kh/2010/06/25/khbbs_dengeki_nomura_interview.
It's in Japanese, does anyone want to take a stab at translating it?
― 北米版「KHBｂS」の発売が近いようですね。 野村氏：9月7日ですね。いろいろ追加要素もあって、ちょこちょこ変わっていますよ。エラクゥスの声はマーク・ハミル（Mark Hamill）さん、ゼアノートの声はレナード・ニモイ（Leonard Nimoy）さんに担当していただいたので、「スター・ウォーズ」と「スタートレック」の夢の競演になっています。あとは、謎の敵キャラが追加されています。恐ろしく強いので、まあなかなか勝てませんよ。デバッカーから「2度と会いたくない」、「20回やってようやく1回勝てた」などの意見が出ていました。
ETA: Tossing it into Google Translate gives us this: "Mark Hamill's voice is Erakuusu (Mark Hamill) says, the voice of Xehanort Leonard Nimoy (Leonard Nimoy)"

This sounds like the closest thing to a crossover with Star Wars and Star trek (many people get confused between the two) --Blix1ms0ns 14:06, August 1, 2010 (UTC)
Updates for the NA site
When is the NA site going to be updated? Does anyone know? Oh,how the sea calls 23:09, July 12, 2010 (UTC)
KIngdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep Gameplay Trailer #2
- Whoa, for a second I thought the release had been pushed off until Oct 9... Ah, crazy European date formatting... --Neumannz, The Dark Falcon 22:04, July 13, 2010 (UTC)
Why should there be a difference in month formatting?Oh,how the sea calls 19:55, July 21, 2010 (UTC)
- What do you mean? Are you asking why the US and Europe have different date formats? --Neumannz, The Dark Falcon 21:28, July 21, 2010 (UTC)
Several trailers have the PSN logo on them (good news for PSP Go owners), but on the actual site, it claims that it is UMD only. I don't know what to think, because the PSN also says there is no confirmed release date. Oh,how the sea calls 05:23, July 15, 2010 (UTC)
On E3 they had a quick BBS scene on a PSP Go so either PSP Go owners will get to playit or Square Enix is just pulling all of our legs, but i however have no need to worry because im gonna just buy the entertainment pack bundle thing.--My Keyblade + Your face = pwnage 21:43, July 17, 2010 (UTC)Chihuahuaman
Recently they said there is no infrastructure mode.Yet the PSN logo remains.184.108.40.206 15:57, August 4, 2010 (UTC)
Birth by Sleep won't be releasing on the PSN. --BurstDragon 10:33, August 28, 2010 (UTC)
Special/Collector's Edition, Pre-Order Bonus
Should it be mentioned in the article that Germany and France are recieving special editions of the game? It includes a new cover art, 2 art prints, and a 48 page artwork book. The KH Final Mix article mentions it's special edition, and the Days article mentions the slipcover case that comes with the Gamestop preorder. EDIT: UK is now confirmed to be recieving it. Also the "Special" tab on the NA Birth by Sleep website has been revealed to be information on a pre-order bonus: a decal kit to make it look like the Japanese Special Edition Birth by Sleep PSP. --BreaktheIce16 (talk) 7:31, 22 July 2010 (UTC)
Only France and Germany get that? Grrr.....still, I pre-ordered Birth By Sleep, and I live in NA, so I'll get....decals? Rip-off! I wouldn't both pre-ordering it if it wasn't Kingdom Hearts and I was sure most-all copies sold would have been pre-ordered. So, I've pre-ordered it, and now I'm waiting....HELP! What should I do while I'm waiting!? Key of Destiny 13:36, July 23, 2010 (UTC)
Well KoD i think that while you are waiting you should watch the BBS english preview's and play the other KH games that you have, however, if you mean what should you do as in buying it, go ahead with the Pre-Order, Gamestop said that we would only get stamps with KHD Pre-Order and we got an awesome looking reversible cover (they cheated meh!) so they are most likely going to do the same thing with the decals and BBS. Hope that helps!
PS: My only problem is that i reserved bundle and don't know if i will get decals for it to look like the Japan bundle KH BBS PSP............0_0--My Keyblade + Your face = pwnage 22:16, July 23, 2010 (UTC)Chihuahuaman
- Now it's been confirmed that Austria, Switzerland, Nordic countries, Benelux, Spain, Italy, Australia, New Zealand, Russia, and Cyprus will get the Special Edition. It's still unknown if it will come to NA. This should definitely be mentioned in the article! --BreaktheIce16 (talk) 22:24, 23 July 2010 (UTC)
Really? Unspecified for James Woods?

- Thanks, but no. We don't keep the trailers or commercials for any of the games past release, and don't put up cutscenes as it kind of violates Fair Use, from what I know.Glorious CHAOS! 22:18, September 4, 2010 (UTC)

US changes to the game need to be added to the page
hey we haven't added the US changes for the game to the page. The Changes include changes to a few commands, changes to a few combat elements, the Sticker Crowns, new ice cream songs, and the new secret Boss-- Mysterious Figure. can someone please add it thanks.--Shindy00 18:50, September 10, 2010 (UTC)
Just when I thought we would FINALLY get something that Japan doesn't, Nomura pulls a fast one on us: http://www.finalfantasy.net/wp-content/gallery/khinsider/bbsfinalmix.jpg Yup, BBS: Final Mix. Of course. Thankfully it looks like they're not getting anything more than us, but still.--18.104.22.168 02:31, September 15, 2010 (UTC)
Well, we all saw it coming. Tamroc7 02:33, September 15, 2010 (UTC)
at the the same time if you want to look at the glass half-full, not only did we get thefm version ourselves, we got it before they did --ShadowsTwilight 03:22, September 15, 2010 (UTC)
Well, Nomura added a Canon super boss to the game for the US release, so he would HAVE to make a final mix for the Japanese fans.--Evnyofdeath 03:33, September 15, 2010 (UTC)
50$ says this is some scheme by a dude in marketing and Nomura is just finding out about this now, like the rest of us.And actually, all they'd need to do is take the International version and switch it for japanese text because the first Final Mix was english audio only, and there's no way they could fit a second audio track on the already overtaxed UMD.22.214.171.124 14:20, September 15, 2010 (UTC)
I thought they were gonna call it Final Mix---My Keyblade + Your face = pwnage 20:56, September 15, 2010 (UTC)Chihuahuaman
Of course, now the Japanese ARE getting more than just the English version! http://forums.khinsider.com/birth-sleep/154842-birth-sleep-final-mix-tgs-info-will-have-brand-new-content-january-2011-a.html
I WANNA SEE THE NEW ARMORED CHARACTER!!!! Monstro's boring. 126.96.36.199 06:10, September 16, 2010 (UTC)
OH GOD FREAKING DA- I stopped myself. It wouldn't be so bad if they just added the content from the English version, but WHY! WHY! Now, I will go bash my head against a tree like Free. --Evnyofdeath 06:15, September 16, 2010 (UTC)
The only thing I can think of is whether or not they can release it internationally via DLC.(Though if they're just adding new bosses I might pass because the ones in this version are hard enough.) I mourn that poor UMD.188.8.131.52 13:17, September 16, 2010 (UTC)
Final Mix add ons
Well we know that final mix is just the english version for Japanese gamers BUT!!! there on a few changes and you CAN get the secret movie on Beginer mode now and the only add ons that we know of are Ventus' dark Keyblade the new Armor fight and the Monstro arena and a new secret movie. thats all not too MUCH stuff. just 4 new things.
Also i like how the Mysterious Figure will play a role in future KH series.--Shindy00 04:09, September 22, 2010 (UTC)
That's only 4 new things that we KNOW about. I think most would agree SE wouldn't show all the new goodies in the teaser trailer --ShadowsTwilight 04:17, September 22, 2010 (UTC)
Shouldn't we mention something about the omission of the Jungle Book world?--KRoNoS 01:56, September 24, 2010 (UTC)
We only mention things in and about Kingdom Hearts, not things that would/could have been.--My Keyblade + Your face = pwnage 19:01, September 24, 2010 (UTC)Chihuahuaman
