Above is the game's trailer, in great quality. Our video archive for 3D is now open, where you can download the trailer.
In addition, so far, various Japanese blogs have reported that the official title of Kingdom Hearts 3D
is Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance
. According to Andriasang.com, the following has been said about Dream Drop Distance
by Yasue, part of Square Enix.
Yasue says the game will make use of 3D, having such elements as "falling from high places" and "flying far distances." They're placing a lot of work on the action part of the game, offering a major sense of speed. Yasue also promises a game that makes use of the various functionalities of the 3DS. You'll trade off between Sora and Riku. The game's tempo and strategic feel will all be fresh.
Kingdom Hearts is about to reach its tenth anniversary and the story is finally reaching its climax. This will be the prologue to the final battle, and as always it will be filled with surprises for the players. This time, to show those "surprises" I decided to use the "Nintendo 3DS". A completely new [battle] system is being prepared and that will give you an idea on how the next "Kingdom Hearts" [games] are going to be, with even more exhilarating action. I hope you look forward to it.
