Sora Goes All 80s In These Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance Screens

(Remaining screenshots can be found here.)

Publisher Square Enix has released some new screenshots and artwork for Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance, the upcoming action-roleplaying game that it will release for Nintendo 3DS this year.

As you can see from the shots, it looks like Sora and crew are headed back to the world of Tron, the 1982 sci-fi film about a man who is transported inside of a computer.

Update: As commenter KingHippo points out, this time protagonist Sora is actually going to the world of Tron: Legacy, the 2010 sequel to the 1982 sci-fi film about a man who is transported inside of a computer.

In Kingdom Hearts 2, the world of Tron existed within a computer network, so maybe we'll see that again here. Or maybe there will be some other convoluted explanation involving monsters and demons and masked figures who are really clones of people who don't really have hearts but might have hearts or something I don't even know anymore, Square Enix. I just don't know anymore.

I need to start playing Kingdom Hearts again, considering The Hunchback of Notre Dame will be in DDD. Now if they can just get Mary Poppins in there I'll be set.

And considering they're putting in non-Final Fantasy characters now, I would like to see some Chrono Trigger and Xenogears action (and Terra dammit, she's like FF royalty).

I need this game NOW.

I need someone to convince me not to import a Japanese 3DS and a copy of this game when it comes out later this month.

My first thought upon seeing this was, "I need to pussypop in excitement."

And that actually looks like it might be based off of Tron: Legacy.

After trying out the awful DS side-story/spin-off games and the mediocre PSP one, I pretty much resigned myself to never playing another KH game unless it's KH3.

Agreed. I have great memories of KH1 and KH2.

Why on earth are they having characters from The World Ends With You? Kingdom Hearts while thing was Final Fantasy and Disney combined into one beautiful package. I know TWEWY is a Square Enix game, but this is just a giant Do Not Want for me. Especially as they still have a lot of FF characters to have. (Terra, Rinoa, Quistis, Faris (yeah, long shot, but a girl can dream, yeah?), Zidane, Garnet, etc.) Shame, as I was really looking forward to a Hunchback of Notre Dame world.

I'm not a fan of Kingdom Hearts and I can't see 3d on the 3ds anyway, but if this is mainly Tron, do want.
