Kingdom Hearts 3D Gets Story Recap, Pre-Launch Event
Looking to try the latest Kingdom Hearts but afraid of being lost in the plot? Square has you covered.
Contrary to popular belief, the main story behind the long-running Kingdom Hearts series isn’t that hard to understand. The problem is how the details are spread out across different spin-offs that tend to go out of order (358/2 Days, for instance, takes place during KHI and II, while Birth by Sleep is a prequel to the original). It also doesn’t help that in order to experience the entire story, one must possess nearly every console on the planet.
Fortunately, Kingdom Hearts 3D will contain a “Memoir” menu that includes two story-specific options: “Recollection” and “Chronicle”. Recollection recaps the newest story in KH3D, most likely serving as a cutscene viewer. Chronicle will include recaps from all the previous KH games, which hopefully will bring newcomers up to speed on who is a clone of who, or why this Nobody is now a Somebody.
In addition, Square Enix will also be planning a pre-launch event on March 3rd in Tokyo. No details on what the event will entail, but they should be forthcoming.
