Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance will include a “Reality Shift” feature that will let players guide characters through touch-screen comic sequences.
Square Enix is clearly trying to shake things up with Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance. Last week, it was revealed that the game was going to be help players feel like Superman. Now, it turns out that the game will also feature sequences where the game becomes a touch-screen comic book.
According to Siliconera:
Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance switches combat to the touch screen when you trigger a Reality Shift. In the Tokyo Game Show demo, you would do this by pressing A and X at the same time. Trigger a Reality Shift in the Country of the Musketeers and the world changes into a touch screen comic book where Donald, Goofy, and Mickey help you attack Nightmares.
This certainly sounds like an interesting mechanic, but it’ll be a little while before Western gamers get a chance to try it out. King Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance is due out in Japan on March 29th, but Amazon has its North American release listed for December 31st.
