GamesBeat: Kingdom Hearts 3D welcomes casual fans back into the series (hands-on preview)

GamesBeat's Alejandro Quan-Madrid: I almost find it hard to believe that Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance is the seventh entry in the franchise. Part of this is probably due to the fact that fans are still waiting for a real sequel in Kingdom Hearts 3, and the recent spinoffs have featured tons of new characters that have alienated me from the series that I remember. I must admit: I’ve fallen a little behind.

Thankfully, this time around, developer/publisher Square Enix is putting together a solid, traditional experience that focuses on some familiar faces and doesn’t involve confusing fractions (KH: 358/2 Days, I’m looking at you). It even takes advantage of some of the 3DS’s unique features. From what I saw at a recent preview event in Santa Monica Calif., KH3D looks like a good point for casual fans who’ve slept on the recent KH games to hop back into the series.

I haven't played since that stupid card game one on GBA.

Haha, that was actually pretty good once you wrapped your head around how the cards worked.

Still, when KH3 comes out, they're gonna have to do what Mass Effect 2 did on the PS3. Just have like an optional hour or so long recap of the entire series. Maybe in an anime or something.

Ahh, KH3...

It almost sounds too good to be true that someday we might get a KH3.

Well it's on a Nintendo System. It can't possibly be for the hardcore only.
