Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance switches combat to the touch screen when you trigger a Reality Shift. In the Tokyo Game Show demo, you would do this by pressing A and X at the same time. Trigger a Reality Shift in the Country of the Musketeers and the world changes into a touch screen comic book where Donald, Goofy, and Mickey help you attack Nightmares.
Dream Eaters, like Hornceratops, are allies. They fight on their own, but you can press an icon on the touch screen to do a link attack, which makes Hornceratops transform into a spiked ball.
Handsome Pegasus (seriously, that’s its name) has Thoroughbred Ride as its link attack. Use it to make Sora or Riku ride the Dream Eater and rush enemies at high speed.
You get to bring two Dream Eaters with you in Kingdom Hearts 3D. Comet drops a meteorite on the battlefield.
Wonder Jamboree makes a Wonder Nyah swell up like a balloon before belly flopping on Nightmares. This is kind of like the Wonder Nyah’s regular link where Sora bounces on enemies while riding the Wonder Nyah.
Unison Rush is a high speed physical attack.
Players learn new abilities by unlocking them with link points on a sphere grid-like board.
Ghost Clown and Scissor Beetle are two of the Nightmares you’ll fight in the game.
Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance comes out on March 29 in Japan.
