Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance

About the Game:
Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance (キングダム ハーツ 3D [ドリーム ドロップ ディスタンス] Kingudamu Hātsu Surī Dī [Dorīmu Doroppu Disutansu]?) (stylized KINGDOM HEARTS 3D [Dream Drop Distance]) is an action role-playing game developed and published by Square Enix exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS, revealed at E3 2010.[9] The game is the seventh installment in the bestselling Kingdom Hearts series.[10] The game was released in Japan on March 29, 2012. It was released in Australia on July 26, 2012, in Europe on July 20, 2012, and in North America on July 31, 2012.

Set after the events of Kingdom Hearts Re:coded, the game focuses on Sora and Riku's Mark of Mastery exam in which they have to protect parallel worlds in preparation of the return of their enemy Xehanort. Besides controlling the two playable characters across a single scenario, the player is able to recruit creatures known as Dream Eaters able to assist them in fights.

The Square Enix staff decided to develop Dream Drop Distance after being impressed by the quality from Nintendo 3DS. Taking advantage of the console's functions, they increased the action elements from the series based on the system previously seen in Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep. Additionally, both the gameplay and the plot are meant to give a glimpse about how the following title in the series, Kingdom Hearts III, will be like. The game has been well received in Japan, selling over 300,000 units as of May 2012.

My notes:
This game is amazing! I just love it! It's really fun to play and seeing the flashbacks are awesome! I really love the Dream Eaters. They are really cute and really strong. Kinda like in Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep, we can "D-link" with the Dream Eaters. They share their power with you or help you fight. The one thing that bothers me is the Drop System. You cannot control when you drop. There is an option to drop when ever you like but you also have a timer. When it runs out, you have no choice but drop. THAT SUCKS! I like it how you are able to keep up with Riku and Sora's story, but you just switch out randomly, it can be in the middle of battle or just randomly walking around. But when the timer runs out, you get "Bonus Time" If you're about to drop in the middle of battle, kill as many Dream Eaters as you can! You get twice the rewards as usual. I don't wanna say too much to those people who didn't get the game and are reading this. Get the game! I guaranty you will love it! Cya next time!
