New Kingdom Hearts 3D trailer is eight minutes of foreign-language awesome

We may not have any official US videos, but this footage is epic in any dialectal

Disney/Square Enix fanboys have been waiting for a proper Kingdom Hearts III for some time while making due with a collection of good-to-great spin-offs. The next side game is Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance for the 3DS, a cross-dimensional adventure starring both Sora and Riku that takes place after KHII. Almost all the footage has been Japanese-only so far, but that doesn’t detract from the greatness of trailers like this one. Watch the full eight minute video to see new gameplay, collectible pets, CG cutscenes, and Disney/Square Enix cameos.

While this featured a tiny bit of what we saw during Tokyo Game Show, this new video has so much going on it’s hard to keep up with. We get to see Riku and Sora head to Traverse Town and meet different cast members of the criminally underrated World Ends With You. We not only get to see more of Pinocchio’s stage, but also the first footage of the Three Musketeers world (we were comforted to see more of Donald and Goofy). We saw the new AR pet feature, a fancy CG opening (we’re assuming), and more all with an orchestral version of Simple and Clean in the background.

There’s probably something really revelatory we missed that Kingdom Hearts diehards caught, which we’d love to know about in the comments. Kingdom Hearts 3D is planned for a March release in Japan, while Square Enix has been quiet on US plans, though it’s hard to believe it won’t be localized eventually.
