Kingdom Hearts 3DS Becomes Dream Drop Distance

kh3ds.jpgAs we near the launch of the Nintendo 3DS console, we'll see more and more of two types of truth: the health risks of a 3D gaming device, and the true names of previously announced titles. Today's revelation is about the second sort of truth, and the subject is none other than Kingdom Hearts.

According to director Yashui Yasae, the new title will feature stereoscopic gameplay when the player is falling, flying, or dashing long distances, giving an added sense of speed. These sorts of 'flying' moments have been described by top designers such as Miyamoto as ideal for the platform - thus the remakes of Star Fox and Pilotwings. One can imagine that Gummi ship levels will be especially suited to the 3D effect, but I'm also particularly interested in a TRON segment.

As for gameplay and story details, all that's been revealed at the latest Square-Enix event is that players will be switching between protagonist/rivals Sora & Riku, which means a return to some of the main characters. Of course, given the franchise's penchant for pithy side-stories, it's easy to think the "Dream" part of the title has a clue to the story as well, but here's hoping it's another solid link in the already-complex story mashing together the multiverse.

We'll have more info on Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance as it drops in!

My bet is that this is Yen Sid's Mark of Mastery Exam test of Sora and Riku whilst they dream [hence explaining the old attire, the title and the old halves returning].

As for DDD, I like it. It's unique and flows off the tongue really well! :P

The graphic designer in me hates the jarred clash of magenta and silver in the logo though [the '3D' part is abit hard to make out - especially at a distance]... >-

Can't wait to personally tryout the new BbS[esque] battle system though [since I don't have a PSP]! :D
