Square Enix have updated their official Kingdom Hearts blog to explain a newly announced feature in Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance. As you can see from the screenshot below (click for a larger image), the game will feature a "Memoirs" section that will summarize the Kingdom Hearts series and present the information chronologically. This will help people to understand the game if they have not played some of the previous games.

Update: Pavlovic Sarah from KH13 has translated the blog post from Square Enix. You can read this translation below.

Kingdom Hearts 3D [Dream Drop Distance] will contain a menu called MEMOIR.

First screenshot:

Tutorial → You can use this guide to confirm gameplay aspects
Reflection Scene
Chronicle
Game Help

Choose the Memoir you want to see
- Free Fall Action (Normal)
- Reality Shift
- Free Fall Action (Battle)
- Spirit Link

Second screenshot:

Terra, Aqua, Ventus were in the world called Land of Departure, which is protected by generations of students of Keyblade masters, to practice under Master Eraqus to become Keyblade masters.

Originally, Terra and Aqua were both expected to became accepted as masters, but...

- Birth by Sleep *this one is selected*
- Kingdom Hearts
- 358/2 Days
- Kingdom Hearts II

In MEMOIR, you will be able to check the tutorial as often as you want and get various reflection-scenes of the story as you advance through the game. You will also be able to see your game progress in this menu.

Furthermore, in CHRONICLE you will be able to see the explanation of the past series, and therefore, those who are playing Kingdom Hearts for the first time will be find a summary of the story and be able to enjoy the game even more.

Ha, that's nice.

Great way to recap the story if we eventually forget the story.

Because coded is pointless? I don't know about CoM though.

This is a good feature to have.

It said that the summaries are unlocked as you advance through the story. It's possible that CoM and Coded just haven't been relevant at the time of the screenshot.

I was wondering if y haf to complete world to gain one of these. There is seven worlds and 3D is seventh game. gaining memoir from each world except last one would be awesome.

thats what i was thinking xD
