Cheats and Walkthroughs
Square Enix has a pair of release dates to confirm for you this morning, for the upcoming Nintendo 3DS titles Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance and Theatrhythm Final Fantasy. The Disneyfied action/RPG will arrive in North America on July 31, 2012 and the Final Fantasy-inspired rhythm game will be here a few weeks earlier, on July 3.
Both games are already available in Japan, with Theatrhythm having dropped in February and Kingdom Hearts following it in March. Both have been pretty well-received too. The Final Fantasy game moved around 70,000 copies in its first week on shelves and earned a 36/40 from Famitsu. Meanwhile, Kingdom Hearts managed to score a 38/40 from the Japanese gaming mag -- the second highest score for the series from Famitsu, behind Kingdom Hearts 2 -- while moving more than 200,000 units during its first week of sales.
Kingdom Hearts certainly isn't a risky sell for American audiences, but it will be interesting to see how the bizarre, rhythm-fueled take on Final Fantasy fares with the Western crowd.
