    A recent interview with Tetsuya Nomura of Square Enix has revealed that the story in Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance won’t be drawn out. This will be done by having a level of interactivity during cut scenes, so in a way they’ll be playable. This is how Nomura explained it:

    Though the story is important to fans as shown by the results of the [Famitsu] survey, it won’t be drawn-out. Not meaning that we’ve decreased the number of cutscenes, but having each one explained one by one reduces the tempo of the game, so we’re introducing a new system to make up for it.

    The ‘new system’ refers to the playable parts.[/p]

    Personally I love the title of this KH game, and this playable cutscene part sounds intriguing [​IMG]

    Before newbie people ask on what console/handheld it is on - It's a 3DS Exclusive

    I still remember the long ass cutscene in Kingdom Hearts 2.
    Or it might be 1, forgot.

    This is happening in FFXIII Versus as well

    >maybe your decisions will affect the story
    Ahaha, there will be ten endings.
    ALL SHIT.

    Could be interesting. Wonder if they'll add some God of War style button presses or something similar.

    Playable cutscenes: isn`t that called QTE nowadays [​IMG]

    But seriously, I love to see what they mean by that, since there isn`t much you can do in a cutscene, besides maybe choosing things and the previously mentioned QTEs...

    If that happened, Squeenix would literally implode.

    KH is their golden cash cow.

    I saw this earlier but thought the tiny bit of info wasn't worth a thread. Much less just this.
    Might as well put all the shit.

    I find this pretty interesting.

    the only thing i dislike about dream drop distance is that they're (yet again) using KH1 Sora and Riku. I mean, they're cooler in their KH2 appearances and this is chronologically after KH2.

    It's not like Re:Coded where Sora is only a memory, that has a reason for being KH1 sora

    Isn't a "playable cutscene" just "playing the game"? [​IMG]

    good idea put some QTE to keep eyes open for the storyline in this series is one, if not the most awkward i ever came across

    Hate to contradict, but world wide, Dragon Quest is still the money maker for Square-Enix. Just wait until DQ X hits and everyone with a wii dusts it off to play.

    That's because each DW/DQ installment is amazing RPG awesomeness. DQIX was easily one of the best DS games, while DQVIII is pretty high up there on the list of my favorite PS2 games.

    I dont think it would be via QTE. i'm guessing they might make it somewhat like the last battle in 358/2 days where the cutscene/secret movie in kh1 was integrated into a playable boss battle. I'm guessing we'll see more of that, or they'd throw dialogues in the heat of the battle. but then again it would be distracting. i'd want the first idea. i'm not too keen with the idea of QTEs outside of battles. The gimmick button in kh2 was awesome and the finishers in re-coded were good. but if there were storyline based QTEs it would somewhat... kill the user experience.

    And DQ is WAY more popular in Japan the anywhere else. When a new game is released it's like Christmas.

    Am I the only one who isn't excited for this?

    I love me some KH, but, well, the Nintendo games have been subpar. Gonna wait to see how this one fares...
