Kingdom Hearts 3D Will Include a Recap Menu

This morning, the official Kingdom Hearts blog updated with a sneak peek at the story recap feature for Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance — the Memoir Menu.

The Memoir Menu will include tutorial and help options, as well as brief vignettes describing the events of previous series titles. New players can bring themselves up to snuff by reading plot summaries in the Chronicle menu for Birth by Sleep, 358/2 Days, and so on. The Tutorial option will offer brief mini-tutorials on the game’s control scheme.

Quite a bit has happened since Sora first fell off the island in Kingdom Hearts. Do you think reading plot outlines can convey the same story and emotion as, well, nine games worth of content?
