The latest issue of V Jump magazine has included an article on Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep. This article shows that Neverland will be included in the game, with Peter Pan, Tinkerbell, Captain Hook, and the Lost Boys as included characters. Also, there seems to be a new gameplay mode where up to three people can play. This is the first solid news we have heard about a multiplayer mode. FF-Reunion have uploaded a low quality scan of this article, and thanks to them, you can view it below, in our gallery.
The article also shows that the next episode of Kingdom Hearts coded, Episode 5, will feature Agrabah. Episode 4 of Coded was released yesterday, so this new episode should be expected in around a month. The screenshot included shows Sora talking to Aladdin.
