Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance

Dream Drop Distance features series protagonist Sora teaming up with some classic Disney characters for fun and adventure in a world of dreams. Players can use the Nintendo 3DS' touch screen to activate special abilities, and can recruit Dream Eaters to assist them in battle against their enemies.

You can check out Sarah LeBoeuf's preview here. Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance will arrive in late July for the Nintendo 3DS.

Sarah LeBoeuf: The button-mashing combat hasn't changed much from the PS2 days, but the game does use the 3DS touch screen to add some more depth to the fighting. When prompted, using the stylus correctly can result in special moves, which breaks up the tedium of battle. Sora also has control of Dream Eaters, which appear to be odd-looking creatures that can be recruited to assist in battle. That's new for the series, and reminiscent of recruiting demons in the early Persona games, so naturally I'm interested in seeing how it enhances the gameplay.
