Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance release date set

New Square/Disney crossover coming to the UK in July

Yet more nuggets of info from today's Nintendo Direct - Square's Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance is to be released in the UK on July 20th.

It's the latest slightly ridiculously-titled game in Square-Enix's Disney-fied role playing series, and it looked fantastic when we played it earlier this month. You can read a preview in the issue on sale right now.

You can also read everything you need to know about the new game by having a poke around our Kingdom Hearts game page.

    After reading the previews in ONM and Colette's blogs i am quite excited about Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance. I have never played a Kingdom Hearts game before but if it gets a good review in ONM then i will certainly be picking this up around launch. :)

    I have the same attitude regarding age and games as well Pappi as i am 22, nearly 23 and i am quite excited about this game. My opinion is you shouldn't be put off getting a certain game because you think you may be too old, if you still enjoy playing a certain game series then age doesn't matter.
    I love how most of the comments about the new Kingdom Hearts are from people in their 20s! :)

    I'm 18, and I started KH when number 2 came out. Hooked when I rented the second from Choices (ahh memories, got to Timeless River) and asked for the 1st (the joys of irritating parents with young Sora going HAA HOOH HERE). Played all apart from re:Coded (and COM: Riku Story and FInal Boss as SORA, because save file corrupted when I loaded it -.- More memories: Riku Replica IV :evil:

    I'm SO relieved to finally have a release date! I'm definitely going to start saving now to get it. It'll be the first Kingdom Hearts game that I'll ever play, but I've wanted to play one since I was younger. :')
