Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance is to release in 2012 exclusively on 3DS, with a storyline that will chart the beginning of the end of Kingdom Hearts' current storyline.
The game will feature two protagonists, Sora and Riku, "free-flow" action for fast and acrobatic play in environments and combat, and a recruitment system that allows you to capture Spirits to fight alongside you. Locations will include La Cité des Cloches from The Hunchback of Notre Dame.
"With the tenth anniversary of the series on the horizon, the currentKingdom Hearts saga is approaching its climactic conclusion," says game director Tetsuya Nomura. "The story of this game will serve as the opening chapter of the final conflict, and, as always, will be full of surprises. In order to best implement this element of surprise and discover new realms of possibility, we have chosen Nintendo 3DS as our platform."
The series' worldwide popularity makes the game a significant win for 3DS, though not the first for a Nintendo handheld - that honour goes to the 2009 DS release Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days.
