Square Enix is releasing two new RPGs for the Nintendo 3DS, one is a sequel in a long running series and the other a new take on the traditional RPG that has more in common with the earlier titles in the Final Fantasy series.
Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance
Celebrating its 10th anniversary, the Kingdom Hearts series has always combined fantastic action RPG game play, an interesting story, great characters and superb music. Kingdom Hearts 3D features the ability to play as both main characters Sora and Riku, explore new Disney worlds such as Fantasia and The Hunchback of Notre Dame, the ability to collect Dream Eaters to aid you in battle and cameos from the cast of The World Ends With You.
Capitalising on the excellent Birth By Sleep, this new entry looks to evolve the series and tie up the loose ends in the story building up the third main title.
If you are a fan of the series and are anticipating the announcement of Kingdom Hearts III, then you should be interested in Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance.
Bravely Default: Flying Fairy
The most striking feature of Bravely Default is its mesmerising art style. Blending highly detailed hand-drawn backgrounds and unique character designs, it is reminiscent of Final Fantasy IX. The battle system is turn-based, while adding a new feature to stack up turns to unleash more powerful attacks. A 3D world map returns as well as a job system similar to that found in Final Fantasy V.
Bravely Default looks to be one of the most impressive RPGs currently in development, with still more features yet to be revealed.
If you have been longing for a return to the classic adventures of earlier Final Fantasy games with a beautiful art style, then you should be interested in Bravely Default: Flying Fairy.
