Kingdom Hearts is one of those franchises that I missed right after it launched because I didn’t own a PlayStation 2 at the time. Soon after I got my PS2 Kingdom Hearts was one of the first games I bought for the system, along with God of War. From there I immediately went into playing Kingdom Hearts II. I love the collaboration between the Square Enix characters and the Disney characters. It’s one of those combinations that when you hear about it you think it can’t possibly work, but it does and it’s a partnership that’s brought a number of good games. The newest game in the franchise is Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance for the Nintendo 3DS. The demo became available today and I instantly downloaded it and started playing.
And those wacky folks at Square Enix have gotten creative with it too. The first entry into the Kingdom Hearts franchise for the 3DS will be called Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance.
I have no idea what that actually means, but according to a Square Enix representative the 3D affect will emphasize action and speed along with a greater sense of height and distance . You’ll be switching time between two of the franchises main characters, Riku and Sora.
You can bet I’ll be bringing you more information on this title as I really like the Kingdom Hearts franchise.
