Rumour: Kingdom Hearts 3D Demo Coming To North America


We’re marking this as a rumour for now, since Square Enix USA haven’t made any official announcements of their own, but Kingdom Hearts creator, Tetsuya Nomura, recently told Famitsu magazine in Japan that Square will release a Kingdom Hearts 3D for 3DS users to try out in North America.


“We’ve decided to distribute a KH3D demo in North America as well as Japan,” Nomura says in a translated interview, which you can read here. “You can play part of Sora’s scenario in Traverse Town. So if your friends haven’t played it yet, you can recommend it to them.”


Nomura’s comment about Traverse Town makes it sound like this is the same demo that Japan got. Here are our brief impressions of that.
