Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance review [Nintendo Universe]

Nintendo Universe writes:

Strikingly, Kingdom Hearts 3D [Dream Drop Distance] feels more like the next core instalment within the ever expanding franchise, rather than the inevitable spin-off identity that it’ll most certainly be attributed to.

Serving as a precursor to the oft-demanded Kingdom Hearts III, it traces that journey that Sora and Riku must undertake to become true keyblade masters. To do so, and a necessary preparation for the eventual return of Master Xehanort, the powerful sorcerer Yen Sid tasks the young heroes with completing the Mark of Mastery exam.

Birth By Sleep felt like a core installment as well, but that's because both BBS and DDD ARE core installments. They're essential to the storyline, just as Chain of Memories was. If you don't have a 3DS to at least play the game, definitely go to Youtube or find the videos to watch the game's cutscenes and boss fights. I can assure you, you'll need it if you're planning on heading into KHIII when it comes out.

Yeah but people will still complain because they're on handhelds. Once they do finally play KH3 they'll realize that just because somethings on a handheld doesn't mean it's a spin off. I don't know why you got a disagree or why I get disagrees when I say that stuff because without BBS and DDD the story wouldn't have gone anywhere. Days was pretty important too.

For sure, just because it's on handheld doesn't mean it should be dismissed at all. Crisis Core for example was one of the few games I've played that nearly made me cry, and it was a handheld.

Though, I have to say... Despite absolutely loving Days, BBS, and DDD, I hope they get a console version soon like they did with Chain of Memories.
