I had a chance to get some hands-on time with Kingdom Hearts 3D at PAX East 2012 this year, and it confirmed that the action is fast paced, frantic and awesome, despite it happening on a tiny screen. Square Enix was nice enough to send over more screenshots for fans to take in, before they can get their hands on the game come July 31st.
These screenshots showcase the fast paced battle system, which you obviously won't get a sense of since it's not in motion but you can trust me when I tell you, it's awesome. You even get a sneak peek at Riku, who is a playable character in the game as well.
Spirits and Nightmares are two different types of Dream Eaters. Spirits accompany Riku and Sora during their journey to protect them from the evil spirits, or Nightmares.
Additionally, KINGDOM HEARTS 3D [Dream Drop Distance] utilizes the AR function of the Nintendo 3DS™ system in which players can pet and feed the spirits, and play mini-games to improve the compatibility with the Spirits.
Remember to stay tuned for more news on Kingdom Hearts 3D Dream Drop Distance, as well as our inevitable review, once the release date rolls around.
