Japanese gaming website has published a recent interview with producer Tetsuya Nomura covering some solid information regarding Kingdom Hearts 3D.

Anyway, here is the summarized information list Nomura revealed: (thanks, GoNintendo)

  • The official title is “Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance”, without the need to say ’3D’ in the title.
  • Wants the player to experience dynamic form changes
  • Wall-jumping doesn’t work so well right now, but they’re working to fix that.
  • The sudden character changes were included to surprise the player, and keep us on our toes.
  • Sora and Riku will visit the same worlds, but they do so in different orders.
  • It’s rare that they are in the same place at the same time.
  • Both characters have different actions, and different control methods.
  • This is related to a new system that has yet to be announced.
  • Changes are likened to Kingdom Hearts Chain of Memories, where Sora’s card deck could be .
  • freely set while Riku used a preset deck.
  • The image above was made with Disney anime packaging in mind.
  • Nomura is considering changing Sora and Riku’s clothing.
  • This change would be made in order to convey that this is a new title, and not a remake.

Other than his excessively biased enthusiasm toward gaming, and technology behind the whole industry, there's a huge fondness inside that drives him nuts to pick up his keyboard and start writing for the love of it.
