EB Games Australia have updated their website with the Australian release date for Kingdom Hearts 3D [Dream Drop Distance]. The game will release in Australia on July 26, 2012. Thanks to Gardevoir101 from KH13 for the find.
This is, of course, before the North American release date of July 31, 2012. While we do not yet have an official word from Square Enix on this, it looks very likely that this is true, since EB Games have only just changed the date from "July 2012" to "July 26, 2012".
EB Games New Zealand have also updated their website with a July 27, 2012 release date for New Zealand. Both the Australian date and New Zealand date seem to be accurate. They also support the earlier July 27, 2012 leak for Europe, as Australia tends to see games released the day before Europe.
However, even though these release dates are highly likely, there is a small chance that they are not accurate. Square Enix Europe have said that they will be announcing the release date officially soon, so stay tuned!

Kingdom Hearts 3D in Australia will retail for $68 AUD, and in New Zealand it will be $93 NZD.
So I guess Australia is getting it before Europe and NA? Now thats not something that happens often :D Come on European release!

Thats nice but ... $70 ...
there better be a bonus or else im going to import

$70 is the norm over here for a standard edition release, so I wouldn't go expecting any extras :P. As long as you got a system that plays imported titles I'd see no reason why getting a cheaper release would be a bad thing. I bought a US console so I can order my cheap $20-$40 games off ebay/amazon + I get netflix when I am over there.

Australia gets things last AND the games are hella expensive.

True that. We get gouged for extra money on everything, not just games.. and one problem is many people are happy to take it. I haven't bought any new-release game here since the days of m PS2 and almost any electronic devices like phones/laptops are imported for money-saving :)

You want to get me excited, let alone interested? Announce a crossover with Crocodile Dundee.

Until that comes, whatever.

The ocarina edition? That was a pre-order bonus which is not something that every game comes with anyway, so unless it's stated somewhere that you will get something then I wouldn't be expecting it in the $70 price tag

you can either pay the $70 price tag and get it early or wait a few days PLUS maybe a week sometimes longer for it to get posted here (this is how long it takes unless you pay for quicker and more expensive postage!) and import it from the usa.
