    Kingdom Hearts 3D : Dream Drop Distance is the upcoming title for the Nintendo 3DS!

    The release date for Japan is confirmed to be March 2012!!
    And as usual the official site has officially opened revealing the sites new make-over!
    http://www.square-en....jp/kingdom/3d/

    In the bottom right there is a drop gauge and if you click the arrow it shows a clip of Sora/Riku falling into slumber and then swapping characters on the icon, this is indeed the method revealed when they meant the characters are interchangeable! You can extend the drop gauge by collecting *Drop Points*.
    On the site also is some new artwork for Sora and Riku.
    World Artwork has been shown for "Pranksters Paradise" and "La Cite Des Cloches"
    It seems it has a new Dearly Beloved remix! Thanks to many youtube users the track is on youtube and ready to be heard in it's entirety in High Quality!

    A new 8 minute trailer is said to be surfacing next week showing off tons of new features!

    Information
    Brace yourselves!
    ****CONTAINS SPOILERS!****
    YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!

    1) Shiki, Joshua, Beat and Rhyme confirmed to be appearing in Kingdom Hearts 3D!
    2) A new Tron Legacy world has been confirmed to be appearing in the trailer for next week!
    3) The trailer will reveal a few things people will find extremely surprising.
    Such as the reappearance of a familiar face who seemed to have a quarrel with Ventus and really didn't like him.
    4) Ansem Seeker of Darkness is also reappearing!
    5) Another surprising thing is the appearance of a Young Xemnas who seems to be attacking Sora in the said trailer. [More info on this next week]
    6) And even three friends reappear; Roxas, Axel [Calls himself Lea in the trailer] and Xion!!

    The Trailer will hit the web sometime next week!
    The release date for Japan is March so does this mean it's not too far from March that North America and Europe get this? Because Nomura said that this game is receiving a Localization at the same time! So who knows!

    Who's gonna get this game when it releases?
    I know for a fact it's a day one release for me!

    lol @ khi

    I wonder how this game will turn out. Hopefully it's not a mess like Days was. Even though I liked Days, it's story and overall importance to the plot of KH was shit. Hopefully this will play something like BbS.

    Is it just me, or does the info revealed so far look pretty homosexual?

    I mean I like KH and all, but I can't help but notice it all seems incredibly flamboyant.

    I can assure you this game is nothing like Days.
    No mission based stuff, Really nice on-par PS2 graphics, Looks better than BBS did and this game is on par-storywise with a numbered title, meaning it's no side-game this links directly into Kingdom Hearts 3 :)

    It's the realm of sleep, Worlds locked in slumber that used to exist. Sealing the keyhole of sleep awakens the world and restores it to the way it was before.

    I wouldn't mind having that panel system back that Days had. That was amazing. I forget what BBS had.

    Well I'm sure I'll pick it up, just because I know I can. Hopefully it lives up to be a great 3DS game.

    Where's Kairi!?
    I don't want a game that's a sausage fest... =(
    Sora isn't the same without Kairi.

    Erm... I'd rather have Kairi... No gender mixes prefered. xP

    Although it's weird that she doesnt show up in the website... I mean.. Kairi has been a main char since the beggining.. She and Sora have a really important connection in the games.. =S

    Rhyme is also female...

    But anyways, TC Lea is Axel's real name, which means that the game will probably have a "past" type world with characters from Organization XIII. Either that or people who are inside Sora's heart, or maybe because Ventus appears and he gets his heart he would have all of Roxa's memories and feelings and the people who were important to him are Lea and Xion. I dunno I'ma do more theory crafting on this later after the trailer comes out.

    Side note, I had KH2 and KHBBS stories pegged before they came out.

    The world that never was
    I hope this game reveals good stuff because Re:Coded barely revealed anything at all! and that's my only fear towards KH3D other than that it's epic! I just want to see an awesome story like KH BBS or KH 358/2 Days (KH II had a good story too).

    well seeing as how this game is only supposed to be the mark of mastery exam, nothing TOO game breaking should happen. also roxas shouldnt know axel's real name

    Nomura said that the MoM is only a part of this game, and not everything will happen is the RoS (Realm of Sleep).
    But that may means something like only the final part of this game is not in the RoS.

    i don't think armors are just for masters, for instance ventus had an armor without being a master...
