Kingdom Hearts 3D Dream Drops into Europe on 20th July

Posted by Thomas Whitehead

Confirmation at last

Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance hit Japanese stores on 29th March, even causing a jump in 3DS sales when it was released. After a long wait we finally have news on a release date outside of Japan, with the title set to land in European stores on 20th July.

In his Nintendo Direct presentation Satoru Shibata reiterated some well-known facts about the game, primarily that you play as Sora and Riku, with special mention for the fact that over 50 types of spirits can be recruited as allies.

There's no news yet of a North American release date, but we'll keep an eye out for any announcements.

@mumof2kids82: Actually, it's coming July 30.
@GamerDude: Not really. You see, there's an in-game part called "Memoir" which has the summary for all past KH stories, that way, newbies can still enjoy the new game's story and understanding everything. That's what Nomura said in one of his interviews.

@GamerDude The story of KH is surprisingly elaborate... but do some research beforehand and I'm sure you'll figure some stuff out along the way. Don't hold back just because of this, immerse yourself into the series and if you want to know more then experience the other titles as well!

this series is way to good to let it go i found out about kingdom hearts at my grandma (YES THIS IS TRUE) she thought it was just a normaldisney game...:P well i played it and when i was further in the game it was so good and the disney characters are just a bonus the combat etc is epic and each new game it gets improved so it'sreally worth it:)

TL;DR
worth buying great game series but still own choice.

@GamerDude Pretty much you should play the others... they are amazing anyway. You can easily buy 358/2 days and re coded for the ds and play them on your 3ds. I definitely recommend getting a ps2 and playing kh1 and kh2 also.
