^ I'm assuming that's because it's original, not NA, release date.

Ciel no Surge over Ayesha I'm a bit skeptical over, but Gust is Gust.

Reset Bomb Forest (Kid Icarus Uprising) should win. KIU has the best soundtrack I've heard this year. Motoi Sakuraba did a fantastic job. Also, KH3D has the most impressive of all KH games.
