The Kingdom Hearts series has always offered some solid and exciting gameplay, but Square Enix has really outdone themselves with the new gameplay elements featured in Kingdom Hearts 3D [Dream Drop Distance]. This makes us wonder, what’s the future of this franchise going to look like? When asked by IGN what was next for Sora and Riku, co-director Tai Yasue said:
We get that a lot. [laughs] We’re still thinking about it. I think 3D is really a hint to the future in a way. We developed it as if it were a console game. We made it for the handheld, but for us it was meant to feel like a console game in a way. I think it really took the Kingdom Hearts series to the next level, it feels like Kingdom Hearts II and Birth By Sleep on steroids. It’s really insane what you can do. So I’m not really in a position to say what we could next, but… 3D, for us, was the future.
We couldn’t have said it better ourselves. The Flowmotion techniques used in this game really add a lot to the already awesome core gameplay, and add a new element that is sure to be implemented in upcoming games like Kingdom Hearts III What do you want from KH3? -Greg Boe (admin)
