Kingdom Hearts 3D

If you are an RPG aficionado, then you would have come across the Kingdom Hearts game. Kingdom Hearts is a game where you travel to the different worlds of Disney’s iconic characters.

Today, we are going to discuss a Kingdom Hearts game that is specially made for the Nintendo 3DS, the Kingdom Hearts 3D.

Kingdom Hearts 3D is dubbed Dream Drop Distance and the story revolves around Sora and Riku’s Mark of Mastery, an exam that will propel them to be masters of the craft. They are preparing for the exam before their master, Master Xehanort arrives.

The action-packed gameplay and the Disney characters that are in the game are what makes the Kingdom Hearts franchise a massive hit among many people.

Kingdom Hearts 3D allows you to play with either Sora or Riku and you can interchange them during the course of the game with the help of the “Drop Gauge”. This gauge depletes over time and when it is empty, you will then switch to the other character (if you’re using Sora, you will then control Riku after the Drop Gauge is fully depleted and vice versa).

Even though you can only control either Sora or Riku, you can acquire the aid of “Dream Eaters” to aid you in combat.

As mentioned previously, what made Kingdom Hearts as a franchise popular among many RPG gamers is that you can travel to the different worlds of Disney characters. The worlds that you can travel in Kingdom Hearts 3D are from The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Fantasia, Tron: Legacy, Pinocchio, and the Three Musketeers.

Both worlds have to parallel stories, both for Sora and Riku. Both of their storylines should be completed in order for you to travel into the next Disney World.

If you visit a certain Disney world for the very first time, both Sora and Riku will be immersed into a dive section where they have to travel into a small tube filled with monsters. There are certain objectives you must complete before you can enter the Disney world. These objectives range from killing a certain number of monsters, killing a mini-boss, among others.

There are also three things Sora and Riku can do when you are in the dive section. Both of them can either slow down their descent, dodge opponent attacks or kill opponents.

As for the game’s plot, the story is centered on both Sora and Riku’s training in order to become masters of the Keyblade. The main antagonist of the story is the younger incarnation of Xehanort, which was also the mysterious figure in previous installments of the game.

Here are some of the Disney characters that will be seen in this game (this list is in no particular order or appearance):

  • Mickey Mouse
  • Donald Duck
  • Goofy
  • The Three Musketeers
  • Yen Sid
  • Maleficent
  • Pete
  • Quasimodo
