• Kingdom Hearts 3D holds the key to all secrets

    Tetsuya Nomura, director of the Square Enix-Disney collaboration that is the Kingdom Hearts series announced that the upcoming instalment Kingdom Hearts 3D [Dream Drop Distance] will reveal many truths about the series.

    Nomura teased fans in his interview with Famitsu magazine, discussing key characters and alluding to events that wrap up the plotline of this story arc. Additionally, Nomura mentioned that KH3D will have the longest cutscene of the series.
    Kingdom Hearts 3D  [Dream Drop Distance]  will feature Sora and Riku as central characters,  and reveal all the  mysterious of the series.
    “If I had to say who the key persons were, I’d say they are the silver haired boy and Axel,” Nomura said. “This time at the end of the story, there will be the longest cutscene of the whole series where the true form of Ansem and Xemnas, as well as their goals and many other truths will be revealed all at once.”

    With the Xehanort Cycle completed, Square Enix will perhaps finally get around to Kingdom Hearts 3. KH3D is shaping up to be an impressive instalment, with the introduction of two new features: Ability Link and Dream Eater.

    Nomura said that the Ability Link feature was created when he tried combining the growth systems of Re:Coded and 358/2 Days with the command board from Birth By Sleep. The Dream Eater feature will replace the previously companions of Sora - Disney favorites Donald and Goofy - with monster-esque allies.

    Kingdom Hearts 3D [Dream Drop Distance] is expected to land in Japan on March 29, with an English release sometime in the summer. If you haven't found enough reasons to pick up a 3DS, Kingdom Hearts 3D is definitely shaping up to be a must-have for KH fans.
