We’ve heard plenty about Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance from Japan, but one piece of news has been alluding us all that time. That news of course was whether or not Square Enix would be bringing the Nintendo 3DS title over to Western shores. Thankfully today that news has arrived as Square Enix announced today that they will be releasing Kingdom Hearts 3D [Dream Drop Distance] as they are calling it now, in Europe and North America sometime in 2012.
Dreap Drop Distance marks the opening chapter to the final conflict in Kingdom Hearts, so this could possibly be a prelude to Kingdom Hearts 3, the title everyone has been hoping to hear about for many years. Players will be able to play as both Sora and Riku and enter a number of “Sleeping Worlds” where they will meet new enemies and allies. They will be seeing a number of new worlds, such as The Hunchback of Notre Dame and a few others. Exciting news.
