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.
