    Hi guys, Giratina here with some news concerning the upcoming entry into the KINGDOM HEARTS series.
    A series that combined DISNEY and FINAL FANTASY related characters together and a fantastic Action Role Playing Game series; Using giant over-sized Keys called "Keyblades" as weapons [That's what she said] Sorry... Kingdom Hearts is notorious for jokes to be made related to Keys and Keyholes
    Anyway I'm going off on a tangent here so let's get to the main reason why i made this post.

    About two days are left until "KINGDOM HEARTS 3D : DREAM DROP DISTANCE" releases OFFICIALLY in Japan
    But some stores just can't keep to the agreement and have put the game on store shelves earlier than they should.
    Copies of the game are in people's hands as well as the Bundle which includes that awesome Kingdom Hearts 3D Nintendo 3DS
    This game celebrates the Franchises Tenth Anniversary since it's release initially back in 2002 with Kingdom Hearts, the game series has come a long way, and this new game for the NINTENDO 3DS System is the prequel to the series final climatic ending of the Xehanort Saga with the most asked for Final Game in any series to date, KINGDOM HEARTS III, which is still yet to have any announcement or any work done to it yet.

    Sadly it seems this game does not include the challenging "Critical Mode" or at least not in the Japanese versions of "Kingdom Hearts 3D : Dream Drop Distance."
    Maybe Square Enix are planning to add the mode into the English releases in a similar fashion to "Kingdom Hearts : Birth by Sleep"... Which if holds true, means that some point this year in the Fall... they will probably announce "Kingdom Hearts 3D : Dream Drop Distance -Final Mix-" of some sort, because the original "Kingdom Hearts : Birth by Sleep" in Japan included only "Beginner, Standard and Proud", Square Enix later decided to release "Kingdom Hearts : Birth by Sleep -Final Mix-" which was released January 20th 2011 and included "Critical Mode" and a few new bonuses such as the No Heart boss fight and Armor of the Master boss fight in the Mirage Arena as well as a Secret Episode explaining Aqua's time in the Realm of Darkness. Could they be planning to bring a Final Mix for the first time in history to a Nintendo portable?

    The game will see it's release in Western and European territories some point in the Summer.
    Are you gonna get this game? Or will you just look up the game on Youtube if someone does a Walkthrough/Let's Play or just in general spoil yourself?

    I am not gonna spoil myself of any kind on this game, this game is too good to spoil in my opinion.

    Source: http://www.khinsider.com/ [Check the forums around and you'll find the topic KH3D Livestreams people have linked a Japanese blog which confirms the Abscent Critical Mode from the Japanese KH3D

    If anyone does wish to be spoiled (not that there's much to spoil), someone uploaded almost 4 hours of a live stream showcasing the first two worlds (Traverse Town and Notre Dame)-

    Skipped the Destiny Island scene though. The guy went to sleep though i imagine he'll do more later.

    Riku better be able to change his keyblade. He's uses the same one in most of the trailers but I believe I saw Sora using keyblades other than Kingdom Key.

    Neimod hurry up, or someone please hurry! All I'd like is for the region lock to be broken, please! I've been playing this game series since day one and have been waiting two years for 3D to come out! I have the game, but I can't play it and I refuse to buy a Japanese 3DS! I don't want piracy, just no region lock! I even emailed Nintendo and all! I LOVE KH! It's my favorite game series, please let us fans play it before the summer, i'd not just be grateful, but I'd even donate! I know this seems k
    off-topic, but you don't know how amazing It'd be for me to play my favorite game series without having to buy the same console from a different region!

    Wow. I really hope you guys are the worse of the KH fanboys... I mean its a fun game series and its pretty cool but its not THAT amazing. I mean its not ground breaking or anything its just FF mixed with Disney. A second TWEWY is much more of a cause for fangasms this hard.

    maybe you didn't understand the story well enough? idk i thought it was pretty amazing specially the battle system in KHII ... btw any one says its just FF mixed with disney is wrong its more than that it has its own elements to make it awesome the music is one of the best soundtracks ive heard in a game. but TWEWY was amazing as well up to par i wish for a sequel as well

    Oh no, I'm not saying the story wasn't good or the battle system (heck I even loved chain of memories battle system) its just to me it seems more like its pretty much a Final Fantasy ARPG mixed with Disney characters and the story has a few odd ends and the series is ripe with originality, I mean the designs on the characters and even the nature of soras weapon is fresh (or was) its just that after chains it felt more like your typical, anime style JRPG except with nice little touches. By no means am I saying its a bad game or I don't understand its style I just feel its like grape soda (terrible example) I mean its not.terrible soda but you don't really understand why so many people like it to that point.

    Well you gotta remember, Neku and a bunch of other characters from The World Ends With You are in this game. They also upgraded the Tron world to Legacy and made all the characters look just like their movie counterparts. This game is also the last KH game before KHIII
