The newest Kingdom Hearts will feature lots of flying and falling in 3D.

Kingdom Hearts 3D's official Japanese name is now Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance, according to Andriasang.

Revealed at Square Enix's 1st Production Department event in Japan, there was not much more new information released about the game. A teaser site was opened, and a few screenshots were released.

Kingdom Hearts 3D is a new entry in the series, and series stalwarts Sora and Riku will be playable. There will be more of an emphasis on speed this time around, complete with moments of falling and flying that will make heavy use of the 3D effects.

"Clever"?  Ugh...I've never understood the Japanese fixation on really terrible puns.

I wonder if this will be like what happened with the DS subtitle (like Advance Wars: Dual Strike, Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow, etc._

A-ha!  3 Ds.  I get it.
Love the Japanese and the ease with which they entertain themselves...

Since when were clever and groan-worthy synonyms?

Really, at the 1:40 mark, you see Sora running in a tower with lots of bells on it. When he jumps and falls, you see a lot of balloons flying at you. That I assume is from the Festival of Fools scene from the movie. Plus, the color scheme for that scene is much like the film's own color scheme.

How many Nintendo consoles have had clever naming schemes?

Super Nintendo
Game Boy Advance
Nintendo DS
Nintendo Wii
Nintendo 3DS

It amazes me that Square seemingly forgot how to count for the numbers between 2 and 4.
