Kingdom Hearts 3D video has 10 minutes of gameplay fun that jumps any language barrier

Kingdom Hearts 3D might be have a pretty vague release date in the US, but Japan is getting the game in just a matter of days. If you’re an importer with a Japanese 3DS and a grasp of the language, you’ll be able to dive right in, but what about the rest of us? Fortunately Square Enix released a crazy long video for the next KH that has a beauty that transcends language.

For those unsure what’s going on with Sora, Roxas, Organization XIII and other such conspiracies, this guide to the story might help some, though we bet even the biggest KH diehards don’t fully understand the entire narrative. But that confusion is part of the fun, so we’ll roll with it. By the way, Kingdom Hearts 3D is one of several upcoming games that use the Circle Pad Pro, the 3DS add-on we recently reviewed.

    Wow....just wow! This trailer reminded me of just how much I miss the KH experience! I really need to start making friends with portable game systems that I can borrow...either that or win a good hunk of cash so I can buy a DS, a PSP and a 3DS along with thier respective KH games, I feel like I'm missing giant pieces of storyline here! In any case, it's a wonderful thing you've done here Henry, thank you for posting this.

    They keep adding characters! Every game has the characters from the last game plus new ones! I can't keep track of them all!

    I love how this trailer just adds more and more questions to the already hundreds of questions people have for the story of KH and this game. Its one of reasons why I love KH so much. I know for a fact this is going to be one of the best Kingdom Hearts experiences I'll ever have! Of course I gotta wait for it to come out first...

    Coolest trailer I've seen in a while. That pretty much shows how to make a trailer into a purchase. I'm definitely picking this up on release.

    I just may end up buying a 3DS for this, and several other games (Mario 3D Land especially!) Mr. Gilbert, do you know if Kingdom Hearts 3D will need the Circle Pad Pro to play properly, or is it just showing love towards left-handed people?

    my last name isn't Gilbert but i will tell you CPP as doesn't seem necessary since BbS was one analog stick and the best in the series
  • RyoonZ - February 14, 2012 7:23 p.m.

    This is just amazing.

    Talk about milking a series. When's a proper console game ever going to come out?
  • Cyberninja - February 14, 2012 7:18 p.m.

    dude its not milking the series in the slightest, the latest portable game was better then any of the console games(BBS is what i mean by latest game, recoded doesn't since it was originally for cell phones) and i have all of them because they all have a part of the story to tell since throwing everything into 3 is a stupid idea which they realized a long time ago, but on topic this looks to be the best game in the series because so far it even looks better then BBS which took best title from 2
  • shawksta - February 14, 2012 7:36 p.m.

    I KNOW RIGHT!? 358/2 days was SO DIFFERENT aswell as chain of memories, and BBS was such an awesome past story game, and this game looks super great and seems to be even more awesome than BBS! STOP MILKING THE SERIES DAMNIT! */Sarcasm* Dude, seriously, just waiting for a 3 isnt really gonna do the series good in my opinion, they created so much backstory that you have to love the other games that are NOT the same crap anyway so its continueing the series. Im pretty sure "Kingdom Heart's 3" will only raise MORE questions and make people want more backstory if it creates new characters and such.
