It's been nearly six years since Kingdom Hearts II came out in North America, and while there's still no sign of a Kingdom Hearts 3, there is confirmation of Kingdom Hearts 3D.
Square Enix today said it will be bringing Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance to North America and Europe in 2012. Set for release on the 3DS, the game will once again combine a cast of Disney standards like Mickey Mouse and The Hunchback of Notre Dame with original Square Enix characters. Described as "the opening chapter of the final conflict" for the series' current storyline, Kingdom Hearts 3D follows Sora and Riku through a Mark of Mastery exam required to become Keyblade Masters.
Since Kingdom Hearts II launched in 2006, the series has seen a wealth of spin-offs, including Kingdom Hearts coded, Kingdom Hearts Re: coded, Kingdom Hearts Re: Chain of Memories, Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days, and Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep. With the exception of Re: Chain of Memories (a PlayStation 2 remake of the original Game Boy Advance Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories), all of the spin-offs have been released for mobile and handheld platforms.
