Whether or not this is true will be determined when the game is released.

Gamekyo has updated their site with some screen shots released by Square-Enix. Screens from 358/2 Days were released in the Nintendo DS secton of Shonen Jump and the screens for Birth By Sleep were shown in the Chinese edition of Famitsu. Here’s a few below, but if you want to see them all click the links at the bottom.
Birth By Sleep
All we need now is the correct pronunciation for 358/2 Days.
There was a rumor going around that the position for Naminé’s voice was up for grabs. It is now official that Meaghan Jette Martin will be her voice; she is replacing Brittany Snow, who was Naminé’s original voice. Meaghan appeared on the DIsney Channel Original Movie “Camp Rock” as “Tess”. No reason has been released as to why Naminé’s voice was recasted, but this is not the first time that something like this has happened; “Ansem”/Xehanort was voiced by Billy Zane but is now voiced by Richard Epcar.
Whether or not Meaghan will voice Naminé in 358/2 Days or any other Kingdom Hearts game is unknown at this time.
Rumors about Tara Platt being the voice actor for Larxene has been trumped when she had this to say:
Sorry I am not in Kingdom Hearts. But it is a great game series!
