Kingdom Hearts 3D UK release date announced

Square Enix is bringing Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance to Europe and PAL territories on July 20, 2012, giving UK fans an eleven day jump on their North America counterparts who are scheduled to receive the 3DS sequel on July 31, 2012. (read: Kingdom Hearts 3D North American release date marked for summer).

The studio revealed the overseas release date along with a rundown of the “never-before seen gameplay elements for the series”. These include a “flowmotion” action system, a Sprit breeding system, updated character designs, and a new collection of Disney-themed environments including Tron: Legacy's “The Grid” and The Hunchback of Notre Dame's “La Cité des Cloches”.

Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance has been in the news since E3 2010. Now that it's nearly here, there's no better time to brush up on your Keyblade lore with our trusty guide, Kingdom Hearts: the story so far...

    Well, at least once this is out, they've got no other KH projects to be working on. So they can finally bloody get on with KH3. Please, enough with the spin-offs already D:

    You forget that the creator of Kingdom Hearts ALSO works on Final Fantasy. His characters are in KH for that reason. He has started on KH, but because of his commitments to the FFXIII-Versus the game won't be done for a while.

    You're right, I had forgotten about that :/ I think somewhere in my mind I knew that, because I always complain about it to people that aren't listening to me; I think I just hoped that, since they're working on Versus Xiii, and they were working on this, that there were two separate teams, so one could get on with KH3. I guess it was just too much to hope for :/
