Square Enix To Bring Kingdom Hearts To Nintendo 3DS

Square Enix has just announced the upcoming release of their latest title in the Kingdom Hearts saga: Kingdom Hearts 3D [Dream Drop Distance].  The newest addition to the KH library will be appearing on the Nintendo 3DS in North America and Europe.

“With the tenth anniversary of the series on the horizon, the current KINDGOM HEARTS saga is approaching its climactic conclusion. The story of this game will serve as the opening chapter of the final conflict, and, as always, will be full of surprises. In order to best implement this element of surprise and discover new realms of possibility, we have chosen Nintendo 3DS as our platform. With its revolutionary new game system, this title will not only be a bold, exhilarating tale of adventure, but also a first look into the future form of the KINGDOM HEARTS series,” said legendary director Tetsuya Nomura, who is heading up the Kingdom Hearts project.

According to the press release, in Kingdom Hearts 3D [Dream Drop Distance], “King Mickey and Yen Sid prepare for an impending threat by putting Sora and Riku through the Mark of Mastery exam. Sora and Riku are sent into the Sleeping Worlds, where they will face enemies and allies that have never been seen before. If they can successfully complete the task they are given, they will be deemed true Keyblade Masters.”

Kingdom Hearts 3D [Dream Drop Distance] will feature over 50 new spirits to fight alongside Sora and Riku and introduce new Disney realms and characters like The Hunchback of Notre Dame.  Slated to be released in 2012, this latest installment is definitely on our radar as we head into the new year.
