Kingdom Hearts 3D Gets 8-Minute Trailer

on December 19, 2011 10:15 AM

This past weekend at the annual Jump Festa, Square Enix released an eight-minute gameplay trailer for upcoming Nintendo 3DS-exclusive Kingdom Hearts installment, Dream Drop Distance.

The trailer opens with Birth by Sleep antagonist Master Xehanort taunting series heroes Sora and Riku — who appear to be children again a la their appearances in the first Kingdom Hearts game. It seems as though most of the cast of DS rhythm-battle title The World Ends With You will beĀ  participating this time around, as characters Joshua, Shiki, Beat, and Rhyme have joined the ensemble.

Old baddie Maleficent makes an appearance as well as Disney trifecta Mickey, Donald, and Goofy in their Three Musketeers garb. We also get a closer look at the game’s particular brand of evil beasties, the Dream Eaters, and how players can customize their Dream Eaters’ appearances. And oh my sweet goodness the Tron world is back.

If you’re a longtime fan of the series, check out the squeal-worthy trailer below. Don’t miss everyone’s favorite Nobodies around the 5:05 minute mark…
