Sora and Riku work together in this adventure, tasked with rescuing Disney worlds that have fallen into a Dream state. Not even the Heartless can enter these closed-off universes, with the games key enemy being Dream Eaters. There are two kinds of Dream Eaters - Nightmares and Spirits. You can collect materials from Nightmares and use them to create Spirits that will aid you in combat.
New gameplay elements include Flowmotion - the art of leaping about from pillar to wall and back again to allow for extreme combo attacks - and Reality Shift, which allows you to warp the rules of the world, interacting with the 3DS touch screen. Switching between characters involves a process called Dropping, as Sora and Riku interact in parallel dimensions of the same world.
Kingdom Hearts has always been a favourable mix of Disney and Square Enix IP. And Dream Drop Distance is no different - except theres a slight change in roster. In much the same way that Cloud, Squall and other Final Fantasy characters were prominent in Kingdom Hearts I and II, here Square Enix has Sora and Riku teaming up with protagonists from cult DS action-RPG The World Ends With You.
