    Square Enix on Thursday released “Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance” in Japan, exclusively made for the Nintendo 3DS. In the West we’ll have to wait a few more months until Summer 2012 to get our hands on the latest sequel in the action-RPG series.

    This is the Japanese Kingdom Hearts 3D TV commercial that ends with the phrase “The adventure continues in in your hands.”

    Here’s the Kingdom Hearts 3D Premiere Event the commercial’s footage came from.
