Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance, the seventh installment in the Kingdom Hearts series and sequel to Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep (playing as Aqua) is scheduled for release on July 31st, 2012. As we near it’s release, Square Enix continues to give us various snippets of information about the game, such as through previews and interviews.
One such interview, with Kingdom Hearts Series Director Tetsuya Nomura, was published by the Japanese magazine Famitsu. In this interview appeared a few interesting tidbits regarding Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance. One such point that caught my attention in particular is the revelation that Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance will contain brand new music tracks from Utada Hikaru, who has previously provided Kingdom Hearts with such classic tracks as “Simple and Clean” and “Sanctuary”.
That’s right – Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance will feature brand new music from Utada Hikaru. But hold on – what about the upcoming Kingdom Hearts 3? Well, although Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance might include new tracks from Utada Hikaru, Kingdom Hearts 3 will not. Kingdom Hearts 3’s music has already been completed – it’s too late to include brand new tracks now!
