Summary: If we’re honest, we find Kingdom Hearts’ whole ‘Final Fantasy meets Disney’ concept pretty baffling. But hey, that’s just us and the series has built up a huge following over the past few years and Kingdom Hearts 3D is bound to be a big hit. Who are we to argue with millions of gamers? And it’s not like the game isn’t a solid RPG experience, albeit one where Winnie-The-Pooh can rub furry shoulders with Moogles.
This installment is pitched as a full entry to the story canon rather than an aside, as the three previous handheld titles have been (Birth By Sleep, 358/2 Days and Re:coded), and will take place after the events of Kingdom Hearts 2. Details are scarce, but creator Tetsuya Nomura says that the 3D of the title doesn’t relate directly to the, er, 3D of the 3DS, rather that it’s a subtitle. Yeah right.
The stars of the show will be Sora (of course) and Riku, with a key theme of trust running throughout the adventure. Does that sound like two-player online play? Yes, we think it does. As with nearly every other 3DS game, there’s no confirmed release date for Kingdom Hearts 3D.
