GP Editor Dominic Dimanche writes, "With the coming of the latest Kingdom Hearts quasi-sequel Dream Drop Distance, my insane love for those keyblade wielders tales has come to the forefront once more. What makes me more excited is that fact I can play as my favorite character in the series – Riku.
For some reason, I found Riku to be far more of an interesting character as opposed to Sora who I considered the archetypal hero-type. Sora rarely ever experienced conflicts or doubt for too long, so while he played as the titular good guy, Riku’s story of becoming a hero was lot more winding and twisted. In my opinion, this makes him far more gratifying of a character as you see him progress."
